Kambo cleanses destructive toxins from the digestive and lymphatic systems, acutely permeating the liver, and helping to remove intrusive viruses and bacteria, while balancing the body’s organs, endocrine system and defense systems to their essential intelligence.
Kambo is similar to other jungle medicines, operating with an intelligence, on the physical, energetic, and emotional realm. It is not hallucinogenic like some other forest brews, making it accessible to a wide number of people of all ages and backgrounds. One cannot hide from Kambo, in a mysterious and enigmatic way, it reveals your shadow and gently supports you in addressing the root of your healing work. It lifts Panema, harmful or toxic energy, and returns harmony to the ethereal human body, chakra system and auric fields. The physical body shifts with Kambo use, as dis-ease and imbalance seem to dissolve while the vital energy body is returned to its most aligned version. Traumas and heartaches can also be liberated and integrated.
Kambo is a powerful catalyst for clarity and action, unblocking and dissolving deep seated trauma, removing obstacles, supporting emotional uplift and positive forward momentum.
Kambo is a remedy that insights metamorphosis and transmutation.

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.
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.
