Kambo is one of the most potent natural ways to restore the immune system, and one of nature’s most compelling anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic and anesthetic substances on the planet.
Often people describe feeling cleansed or emerge with a new sense of calm and clarity. Deeper connection with self and the world, alignment, and renewal can result from even one treatment of Kambo.
VENOM USE AS MEDICINE?
A Tradition Thousands of Years Old
The earliest known venom use for medicine dates back to 380 B.C., in Ancient Greece. Kambo is often considered a poison, or a venom and has been used by forest people in the Amazon for thousands of years. Only recently in the 1980’s, Mestizo or half-indigenous people, began learning the practice from indigenous tribes and sharing it in the cities of Brazil. Today, the 1st nation peoples have chosen to share the use of kambo to all peoples, as it has spread worldwide and continues to grow in popularity.
This traditional medicine consists of many influential peptides that fortify the human body, which have been scientifically studied for over three decades.
Kambo is considered an “ordeal medicine.” This means that the experience of receiving kambo may not be very comfortable or easy. It has a cleansing and purgative effect, which most usually causes nausea, vomiting, and eliminating, as your body and spirit are being cleansed.
3 treatments within a moon cycle (28 days) are recommended, especially for chronic ailment. However even one treatment will bring shifts in physical and energetic wellbeing.
As someone who has struggled with chronic illness it has been a life long journey to work with my symptoms, pain, body and mind.
Kambo- unlike any other modality or healthcare treatment-has proven to be the healing Panacea that has allowed me to understand, and heal through my suffering.
To work with Julie has been the key that unlocked this medicine for me.
Her sharp awareness, committed respect and prayer to and for and with the medicine, her voice, the strong container she holds and the love in her heart, allow this medicine to be received in a way that gets right to the heart of the matter.
While some might say that “medicine” is all that is needed to heal the sick, it is my experience that the bedside manner, intention, and heartfelt compassion of the “physician” is equally if not more important for the sick to heal.
For me, Julie has been the skilled practitioner who not only carries the powerful medicine of Kambo, but also applies it with the care and awareness of the greatest of “physicians”.
For those in need of healing, and willing to do their work, I cannot recommend anyone more, attentive, compassionate or skillful than Julie with Alchemy Kambo.
Julie brings a profound sensitivity, clarity, and warmth to her Kambo sessions. That makes all the difference for work that can be both intimate and challenging. I do a session with her every time I am in Asheville and look forward to doing a series within a lunar cycle.
Julie holds a very safe, loving, calm, sacred space during your Kambo treatment. Perfect for the new moon!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Kambo Hallucinogenic? Will I "trip"?
No. None of the peptides present in Kambo are known to produce hallucinations. Some people may experience a momentary shift in their state of reality, and often might receive insights into their life.
How is Kambo applied?
Kambo is administered privately or in a group setting, sitting outside in the warmer months and inside on the floor in the colder months.
Small holes, called gates are burned into the Interstitium, fluid-filled spaces in connective tissues all over the body, within the dermal layer of the skin. For more information on the Interstitium, click HERE. The burns are cleaned and excess skin is removed to limit scarring. The number and placement of the gates depends, person to person and the amount of the secretion they are needing. This will be discussed before the treatment. The secretion is then placed in the gates, entering the body through the lyphatic system.
Do the burns leave scars?
They might leave scars.
The wound where the Kambo was administered will be sealed with a Peruvian tree sap that is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. The sap serves as a sealant or liquid bandage and assists in rapid healing and protection from infection. Please do not cover the wounds with a bandage, but allow them to heal in the open, as the sap creates a bandage. Please leave the sap on the marks until they naturally fall off, do not pick at the points as this might induce further scarring.
If you prefer no scaring, use Vitamin E oil only after the scabs have fallen off naturally.
Is Kambo safe?
