Discover the transformative power of Kambo, a non-psychoactive traditional Amazonian remedy derived from the Giant Monkey Frog, scientifically known as Phyllomedusa Bicolor. Ethically sourced from the frog's skin secretion, Kambo is harvested without causing harm to these precious creatures. Administered through superficial burns on the skin, Kambo initiates immediate physiological responses such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, and light-headedness. However, many participants attest to remarkable health enhancements for a wide range of conditions, encompassing both physical and spiritual realms, after experiencing the benefits of Kambo.

What is a Kambo?


Although Kambo elicits an intense physical response, it is inherently safe when administered correctly under the guidance of a qualified practitioner. However, there are certain individuals who should refrain from receiving Kambo. For a comprehensive list of contraindications, please click the button below.


The Kambo ceremony typically begins with the application of superficial burns on the skin, which removes the top layer and exposes the lymphatic tissue. Following this, you'll be asked to drink a sizable amount of water to facilitate the detoxification process.

Once the frog secretion is applied to the open burn marks, the effects of Kambo are swiftly felt. Participants commonly report sensations of heat flushing, increased heart rate, and pressure in the head. Nausea may occur, leading to vomiting or a need for restroom purging. Additionally, mucus production, sweating, and the release of stored emotions may be experienced, all vital aspects of Kambo for purging physical and energetic toxins from the body.

The post-effects vary depending on individual health, but most people experience a beautiful afterglow with heightened energy, improved mood, reduced pain, increased motivation, enhanced clarity, and a sense of peace and wellness. For those dealing with chronic illness, there may be a period of heavy detoxification lasting a few days. Kambo's potent antibiotic properties eliminate pathogenic bacteria in the body, prompting the release of their bio-toxins during a die-off stage. Following this, individuals generally feel better than before their Kambo experience.

While Kambo lacks the hallucinogenic or psychoactive effects of other spiritual Amazonian medicines like Ayahuasca, it carries a strong spiritual element. Many individuals gain clarity, release old emotions, recall long-forgotten memories, and encounter uncanny synchronicities during their Kambo journey.


The number of sessions required depends largely on your health condition and objectives in utilizing Kambo. Optimal results are often achieved through a series of sessions. For individuals dealing with chronic health issues, undergoing multiple treatments within a condensed timeframe is recommended to efficiently detoxify the body from bacteria and inflammation. Some prefer a three-day consecutive cleanse, while others find a three-week consecutive regimen more suitable, allowing for sufficient recovery and detoxification. Following a series, some individuals establish a maintenance schedule of Kambo sessions every 4-8 weeks, while others may try it once and decide not to continue. Ultimately, the frequency of sessions is a personal choice.

If you're aiming to achieve specific goals with Kambo, I highly recommend committing to a minimum of three initial sessions. The first session serves as an introduction to the experience, akin to soaking dirty dishes before cleaning them. It softens any stubborn residues, making subsequent sessions more effective as individuals become more adept at navigating and surrendering to the experience, thus enhancing progress.

While it's perfectly fine to try Kambo once out of curiosity, I encourage those with specific objectives to commit to at least three sessions to maximize the benefits.

How many sessions are required?

The utilization of Kambo traces back to indigenous South American communities inhabiting the Amazon jungle. Its discovery by outsiders occurred in the 1980s, notably by Peter Gorman, a journalist who spent time with the Matses tribe and documented his findings in a book titled "Sapo in My Soul" (Note: Sapo and kambo are interchangeable terms depending on the context).

Originally employed as a medicinal aid for the tribe's hunters, Kambo bestowed upon them enhanced endurance, stamina, acute vision, heightened auditory senses, reduced hunger and thirst, and the ability to mask human scent for improved hunting stealth. Additionally, it was administered to women and children to combat various ailments such as malaria, parasites, snake bites, fevers, and infections.

The frog's secretion, often referred to as "sweat," contains numerous peptides, many of which have undergone scientific scrutiny. These peptides exhibit unique actions, including the stimulation of endogenous opioid receptors and manipulation of the blood-brain barrier's permeability. This mechanism potentially facilitates the passage of other compounds from the Kambo cocktail into the brain that might otherwise be hindered.

Often hailed as the ultimate detoxification agent, Kambo effectively draws out stored toxins from different organ systems and expels them from the body through various means.

Moreover, scientific analysis has revealed that the peptides in Kambo are non-toxic to human cells, yet exhibit toxicity towards bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses, thus rendering it a potent antibiotic for detoxifying the body.
