Earth medicine for the soul
In the jungles of the Amazon rainforest where kambo originates, hunters of the indigenous tribes call on the medicine to strengthen their bodies and minds before the hunt, to decrease their appetite and need for sleep, to sharpen their senses and to connect them more deeply with the Spirit of the Forest (the intelligence that moves their world). Kambo is also used to remove 'panema' - bad spirits, which we would call heavy energies and could manifest as depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. The women of the tribes use kambo in their womben's work, deeply sacred and guarded...like all our wombens' mysteries.
Kambo is the secretion of the Giant Monkey Tree Frog (phylomedusa bicolor) of the Upper Amazon Basin.The frog uses the secretion primarily as sun protection, coating its skin in the waxy substance to protect it from drying out as it lives high up in the forest canopy, on tree branches. The secretion also acts as protection against predators, it is highly poisonous IF ingested. Thus the frog has no natural predators & in this we receive the beautiful teaching that there is NO ENEMY there is NOTHING TO FEAR. This is one beautiful transmission of the Spirit of this Medicine.
The secretion is full of bioactive peptides, which can be defined as specific portions of proteins with 2 to 20 amino acids that have desirable biological activities, including antioxidant, anti-hypertensive, antithrombotic, anti-adipogenic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects. These peptides are recognisable by the body at a cellular level. Our cells open to receive these life supporting peptides & in that any toxic residue in the cells that they have been unable to process & release by their own mechanism are flushed out, into the blood & into the stomach. The purge that Kambo induces is the release of these toxins. Kambo is a cellular level cleanse that changes the cellular memory, restores our cellular memory of harmony. In this way Kambo targets the root cause of any dis-ease in the body, regardless of how it is manifesting.
Our cellular memory holds trauma, large unprocessed life events. This holding causes holding patterns in the body, emotions & in our life...that see us replaying the story of our trauma over & over reinforcing our belief in this way of seeing & being in the world, often this trauma is inherited, cultural, global as well as individual.
Kambo cuts that loop by cleansing the memory & giving space for you to write a new story as it were.
Frogs are creatures of the land & water, kambo cleanses both the physical land of the body & the emotional waters of the body.
Kambo returns us to our natural state of being which is wellness.

Kambo is a perfectly safe natural substance that causes no harm to the human body.
However there are some people who cannot take Kambo and others who must exercise prior caution. As a professional practitioner your safety is of the utmost importance to me so I ask you to please read the following carefully and respond honestly.
If Kambo is not right for you I am so happy to direct you to other healing modalities either though myself or a close group of friends and practitioners I highly and personally recommend!
