Can Kambo Help You Heal?

Kambo frog medicine has been used for many years to cleanse, detox and strengthen the body, mind and spirit.

Do you want to feel superhuman?

Would you like to feed your fear a suck-it sandwich? 

Want to give your immune system a BIG boost?

Well, Kambo might be worth trying! Many people feel strong, calm and clear after experiencing a Kambo ceremony. It can also boost your immune system for days, weeks and even months after.

What is Kambo?

It’s a Giant Monkey Tree Frog native to South America. During a healing Kambo ceremony, the venom (a waxy secretion) from the frog is applied to your skin. This can help the body to remove deep toxins to enable powerful healing.

Kambo is great for the immune, endocrine and nervous system. It’s also helpful for increasing energy, circulation and stamina. ​

Peptide Healing Power

Kambo contains at least nine healing peptides. As a result, it’s one of the strongest natural immune boosters and pain-relievers in the world!

  1. Dermorphin – potent painkiller (30-40 times stronger than morphine!)
  2. Deltorphin – greatly reduces pain.
  3. Phyllomedusin – supports digestive healing.
  4. Phyllokinin – can reduce blood pressure.
  5. Phyllocaerulein – reduces pain & blood pressure.
  6. Adenoregulin – protects against pathogens and cancer cells.
  7. Dermaseptin – strong immunity support.
  8. Tryptophyllins – healing for heart, inflammatory, and anti-cancer therapy.
  9. Caerulein & Sauvagine – increases stamina & strength. It helps reduce pain & stress. It also benefits digestion.

What to Expect

The effects of Kambo are intense but fast, usually 20-40 minutes. Kambo is legal in the U.S. It’s not psychoactive. For best results, find a qualified practitioner. He or she will provide detailed info and instructions.

Before Application

Pre-session you’ll fast for ten hours and avoid water two hours before.

Once you arrive at the ceremony space, you’ll get comfortable, ask questions and drink two liters of water. The practitioner will create small points or “gates” on the surface of your skin. This is where the Kambo is applied. If it’s your first time, a test point is created. A test point helps determine the best number of gates. Gates can be placed on various parts of the body. For example, near the shoulders and ankles is most popular. This can also include chakras and meridians for targeted treatment.

During a Ceremony

Once the gates are open, the frog venom is applied. 

Kambo quickly enters your lymphatic system, scans your energy and gets to work where it’s needed. It deeply cleanses the liver and organs. It travels throughout your body and wakes up your body’s defense system. This activates powerful healing potential.

Your body can react in a variety of ways. You may experience: 

  • An increase in heart rate,
  • Swelling in the face, hands, and throat,
  • Temperature changes,
  • Flushing,
  • Headache,
  • Cramping, and
  • Nausea.

You release toxins through purging. This can include vomiting, going to the bathroom, sweating, crying, and shaking. Although purging mostly takes place during the session, it can continue after as well. It’s quite fun to see what you purge. Sometimes there’s a rainbow of colors that come out! 

After a Ceremony

After about 20-40 minutes the Kambo is removed from the gates. Your symptoms quickly disappear. Then you can rest, relax, eat some light food, and connect with the group.

The benefits are felt short and long term. Many people feel…

  • A deep calmness,
  • Heightened senses,
  • A sense of well-being and positivity,
  • Increased energy,
  • Quick reflexes,
  • Mental and emotional clarity, and
  • High levels of motivation. 

Cate’s Experience

​For intense healing, I did three sessions in one lunar cycle. After each session I felt superhuman. I also experienced health improvements and a deep emotional release. There were a few times that I found myself crying and laughing at the same time. It was quite liberating!

I felt calm and happy during my experiences. I love being in a healing group, even if everyone is purging! There’s something special about connecting with others in such an intense and vulnerable setting. It’s nourishing on a soul level.

  • Health benefits: 
    • Restful sleep,
    • Less inflammation and pain,
    • Increased energy and stamina, and
    • Improved digestion, immunity, and circulation
  • Mental benefits: 
    • Greater productivity, creativity and focus
  • Spiritual benefits: 
    • Felt superhuman, grounded, calm, connected, and confident

3 Healing Ceremonies

The first ceremony helped me realize the many fears I was creating in my life. It became clear how to replace these fears with love. As a result, I was able to eliminate much of the daily suffering I was experiencing daily.

The next ceremony helped me speak my truth and live more from my heart. I started to take action on the life I wanted. I stopped waiting for the “right time.” Ever since then, I’ve been able to see things more clearly.

The last ceremony left me feeling connected with myself, others and the medicine. After having my guard up for so long, it felt nice to be vulnerable, open, and honest. It also reminded me of the tremendous value of connection and how important it is for healing and growth. We can heal ourselves individually. However, it’s powerful when we help each other heal in a nurturing group.
