DEFINITION of KAMBO: Kambo is a substance that comes from frog secretion, and for many indigenous cultures in the Amazon, this purgative, immunity-boosting medicine is very important. Known in Portuguese as the “vaccine of the forest, Kambo is powerful substance and shouldn’t be administered except under the care of an experienced practitioner. A practitioner can help guide you to gain the maximum benefits from a kambo application, helping you to set an intention before the ceremony, ensure proper setting during the ceremony, and integrate the experience afterward. kambo has been shown to contain short chains of amino acids, known as peptides, that affect gastrointestinal muscles and blood circulation as well as stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland in the brain which can help in the treatment of depression, migraines, blood circulation problems, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, vascular insufficiency, organ diseases, cancer, fertility problems, deeply rooted toxins, chronic pain, addiction to opiate or prescription painkillers (Kambo reduces physical pain, thus helping people kick their addictions to other painkillers), fever and infections, as well as negative energies or attachments.
