What is Kambo?
Kambo (also known as Sapolocally to Peruvians) is the secretion of the “Giant Waxy Green Monkey Tree Frog “ (Phyllomedusa Bicolor), which lives in the upper areas of the Amazon rainforest. They are found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela. Kambo is well known as the “vaccine of the forest”, here, and is known as a detoxifying purgative, immune-boosting qualities, + treatment for chronic pain + drug dependency.
These frogs are not endangered and Kambo is completely legal around the world except for restrictions in Bazil + parts of Australia. I ethically source the frog serum with Kambo International who fair trade with the locals. Who we work with treat the frogs with care + do not over-farm or over-stress the frogs.
What is it used for?
The use of Kambo differs amongst tribes but the main indigenous uses of this cleansing ritual revolve around lifting “Panema” – an indigenous name for dark or negative energy/ bad luck. They also used Kambo for Hunting Magic, believing it increased their speed, endurance, + sharpened their senses, during hunting. They also believed it made the hunters invisible by temporarily eliminating their human odor.
Medicinally they would use it for treatment of: malaria, snake bites, fevers, infections, fertility problems, and to cleanse, detox and strengthen the mind and body. They also used it to increase energy, sexual attraction and stamina, and to reduce pain.
The serum contains short chains of amino acids (peptides) that affect the gastrointestinal muscles, blood circulation, + stimulation of the adrenal cortex + pituitary gland of the brain. There are dozens of these peptides in Kambo, some of them bioactive, meaning they can bind with receptor sites in humans. The peptide families represented in Kambo include bradykinins (phyllokinin), tachykinins (phyllomedusin), caerulein, sauvagine, tryptophyllins, dermorphins, deltorphins and bombesins. Recent studies have shown that Kambo contains multiple antimicrobial peptides effective against drug resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, parasites and viruses.
Researchers believe that Kambo will open up a new world of treatments for many chronic illness, hormone imbalance, pain, + immunity challenges. While research is still new in the field of studying the effects of kambo, the interest from the scientific community continues to grow.

Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances. It is 30-40 times stronger than morphine in its pain-killing properties. It also detoxes the liver and the intestines so it’s a powerful cleanser.
Kambo also boosts the immune system, by supporting the functioning of the body’s natural defense system to fight off existing challenges/illness + reducing risk of picking up illness from your environment.
Emotionally + Spiritually, Kambo aids us in discovering clarity around obstacles or confusions we may have been experiencing. It clears our energy field + helps us to break negative habits + protections we might not otherwise have been consciously connected to.
Immediate and short-term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst.
When Kambo is administered responsibly is it completely safe. With that said, we do not offer this for individuals who identify with conditions that are contraindicated. Dr Cat will go over any of these potential concerns, including: medical, mental, physical, + pharmaceutical.
