Kambo is a natural skin secretion extracted from what is known as the “giant green monkey tree frog” (scientific name “Phyllomedusa Bicolor”) found in the upper Amazon rain forest. It has gained wide recognition in the recent years for it’s reported use in aiding the body’s natural healing abilities. Kambo is often referred to as “the vaccine of the forest” by the many indigenous tribes that have relied on it as a integral part of their lifestyle. It’s use has been handed down through the generations for centuries. Kambo, also known as Sapo or Dow-kiet, is used to support the mind, body, and spirit.
Indigenous Amazon tribes consider Kambo a very important medicine used to aid their way of life in the harsh Amazon conditions. It is used to fight off illness such as malaria, fever, infections and snake bites. It is used for hunting; to sharpen the senses, allowing the hunters to have increased stamina and a hidden scent. Kambo is also used to clear “penema” (the indigenous term for bad luck). Tribes recognize panema as a negative, dark fog that clouds the mind, body and spirit. Kambo is said to help lift this hindrance of one’s ability to move forward in life.
The recognition and use of Kambo as a natural support to the body’s inherent healing abilities is increasing across the world. As the scientific research into the secretion of the Phyllomedusa Bicolor grows, skilled practitioners are also developing new ways to work with this powerful secretion from the Amazon frog. Kambo is very safe with guidance of a properly trained practitioner. Kambo is now available in most areas of the world, and has been an area of focus for many of society’s ailments.
Scientifically, Kambo enters the lymphatic system, waking up the body’s natural ability to heal itself on a cellular level. After Kambo, people have often reported positive energetic shifts in their lives. Some have observed dramatic improvements in mental well-being, physical healing, reduction in depression/ anxiety, freedom from addictions, relief from chronic pain, and aiding in recovery from major illnesses.
