Kambo: What to Know About Frog MedicineKambo: What to Know About Frog Medicine

We’ve seen guests sweat, purge, shake, clench hands/face/feet, and some have had visionary experiences. Kambo, also known as vacina-do-sapo, or sapo (from Portuguese “sapo”, lit. meaning “toad”), is the dried skin secretions of the kambô, a species of frog, used as a transdermal medicine, however evidence for its effectiveness is limited.

The effects of a Kambo cleanse don’t last long, so it’s unlikely they could impact a chronic health condition. It’s true that the bioactive peptides in the toxins cause a pharmacological response, but there’s no research to support whether that translates into lasting benefits. The peptides contained within the secretion of this powerful giant monkey frog provide support to regenerating vital cellular processes and hormone like rebalancing within the body. Kambo is a poisonous substance that can cause severe health complications and even death if a person applies it incorrectly.

We can then advise on what treatments would be advisable and if we can or can not perform Kambo treatments on you. It can be an uncomfortable process releasing all those toxins from within, but it is quick, and the benefits of a couple of sessions can last up to 6 months or possibly even longer.

Prep is similar to that for any entheogenic ceremony—eat clean, avoid meat and processed fried food, and spend some time thinking about your intentions. On the day of the ceremony, your stomach should be empty, so the practitioner will likely ask you to fast for at least 8 hours beforehand. If you have never worked with Kambo before, the 3- day Warrior Cleanse /  Kambo Initiation is highly recommended and required. This holistic cleanse can give you more clarity, focus, and energy. By clearing all of your energy channels and cells, Kambo connects you to your higher self and intuition, while also energizing and empowering to make the changes necessary for transformation in your life.

Risks and side effects

Because of the effects of Kambo on the body, ceremonies are practiced with a safety first mindset. The room will be set up to provide a safe setting for attendees, and participants will have a bucket, water and towels to hand. Kambo cleanses are gaining popularity in North America and Europe despite a lack of scientific evidence to back up the health claims surrounding the ritual. From the wound, the kambo enters the lymphatic system and bloodstream, where it’s said to race around the body scanning for problems. This usually results in some immediate side effects, especially vomiting. There is not currently enough research into kambo’s effects on the human body.

This makes the experience slightly easier to go through and can help you process the emotions. Many of the benefits will only occur if you follow the tips below. Unfortunately, some benefits may not last for longer than a few months after taking the substance.Most (if not all) of the side effects are preventable and they will not happen if you follow the Safety checklist. A recent lawsuit filed against Soul Quest Church—known to host plant medicine ceremonies in Orange County, Florida—has brought questions of harm reduction to the fore. After Kambo is removed from the top layer of skin, the entry points are closed with a Peruvian anti-bacterial/fungal tree sap (Dragon’s Blood). This helps the entry points heal faster and acts as a “liquid bandage”, while offering a secure antibacterial barrier. DO NOT pick at the points or try to remove/clean off the Dragon’s Blood.

At around the 20 min mark, I felt the familiar pulling sensation in my stomach so I put my head over the bucket to purge but I was only able to manage some dry heaving. It suddenly felt like the most natural thing in the world to just reach for the water and start to drink. I drank about three-quarters of a litre and then immediately purged bright green bile; and in that timeless moment, the Planet Kambo Method was born. At a very basic level, your facilitator must ask about your medical history, and be aware of any health conditions that could make kambo especially dangerous for you.

An alternative way to approach the risk of hyponatremia is to provide electrolytes to balance sodium levels. Some traditional facilitators will give participants a salted root vegetable drink called Caiçuma, greatly reducing the risk of hyponatremia. My friend wanted to take kambo because she heard it could reduce her frequent migraines. She had the number of a practitioner, had researched the medicine, and was ready to try it. Just one thing was giving her pause; she was a recovering bulimic. She hadn’t binged and purged in years, but like addiction, eating disorders stay with you for your entire life.

I would describe this as enlightenment for me as far as Kambo was concerned. I realised Kambo should be a gentle and blissful experience, not a harsh and abrasive ordeal.

The sudden recoil and paralysing stomach-sink drowned my senses like a lucid dream’s slow-motion skyscraper freefall. The dreaded moment came and the shaman announced the start of the ceremony. In that instant, I wholeheartedly committed to what was going to happen and knew there was no going back.
