Kambo

WHAT IS KAMBO?

Kambo is a venom that comes from a frog found in the Amazon.  The Kambo we use is harvested ETHICALLY.  It is NON PSYCHEDELIC.  

HOW IS KAMBO USED?

Kambo is administered through small burns called "points".  This allows the venom to get into the lymphatic system, where it is safest, as opposed to the blood stream where it can be very dangerous and potentially deadly.  

WHAT IS KAMBO USED FOR?

Kambo is used for a multitude of reasons and it's use provides beautiful spiritual, physical and mental benefits.  It provides great help for those battling addiction, depression, anxiety and chronic pain.  It also provides an incredible spiritual calm and connection; boosts the immune system; sharpens the senses; detoxifies the body. and much, much more! 

ARE THERE ANY KAMBO CONTRAINDICATIONS?

Yes, Kambo contraindications include:

  •  an aneurysm

  •  blood clots

  •  brain hemorrhage

  •  recent users of diuretics (reduce water retention)

  •  pregnant or breastfeeding women with babies under 1 year old;

  •  stroke;

  •  those with serious heart problems, heart transplant or people taking medication for HIGH OR LOW blood pressure;

  •  serious wounds externally or internally that have not yet healed such as a very recent surgery;

  •  persons with severe cognitive disorders who are unable to understand the physical processes involved;

  •  persons taking immune system suppressants;

  •  chemotherapy or radiation treatments of less than 4 weeks prior

  •  serious mental health conditions, whether or not on medication or undergoing other treatments, except depression                                                      

KAMBO SHOULD BE USED WITH CAUTION FOR THE FOLLOWING:

  •  serious eating disorders;

  •  If you are asthmatic, ensure that you have your inhaler with you;

  •  If you are diabetic, suffer from any major, acute or chronic illness, you must disclose the situation and your current medications prior to your treatment;

  •  certain types of drugs and herbal supplements.

If you are Menstruating, your flow will increase for up to 72 hours after use.  

CAN KAMBO BE USED WITH AYAHUASCA?

We do not recommend using Kambo the same day as using Ayahuasca.  It is safest if the Kambo is administered one day and Ayahuasca used the following day. 

CAN I EAT BEFORE USING KAMBO?

No.  We recommend you not eat or drink anything other than water prior to your Kambo experience.  You may, however, eat and drink usually within an hour of your experience.

HOW MANY POINTS SHOULD I DO?

Everyone is different and so is their sensitivity to Kambo.  The way that WE administer Kambo is start off with ONE point. We do this for a couple of reasons.  One reason, as previously mentioned, is due to personal sensitivity to the Venom.  The other, is to check for any kind of an allergic reaction.  An allergic reaction, whilst we haven't ever had one, would be much easier to handle and much less dangerous on ONE point than it would multiple points.  Just as with the use of Ayahuasca, YOUR SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE CONCERN!!!

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT TO FEEL?

First and foremost, understand that intensity of what you feel will be based on your individual sensitivity to the Kambo.  In general, you will feel a flushing of your system; you will feel an increase in your heart rate; you will feel a slight resistance when you breathe; you will feel a vibration of the pineal gland and you may a little nausea.  

WHERE DO I HAVE TO PUT MY KAMBO POINTS?

There is no "have to" placement for the points.  We STRONGLY RECOMMEND that they NOT be placed on the face or neck.  We also STRONGLY RECOMMEND that they not be placed outside of a fleshy area of the body (wrist, inner elbow, etc.).

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE KAMBO?

We recommend NOT using Kambo more than 12 times per year.  

WHAT MAKES KAMBO SO BENEFICIAL?

  • bradykinins (phyllokinin)

  • tachykinins (phyllomedusin)

  • caerulein

  • sauvagine

  • tryptophyllins,
