In the jungle, kambo is referred to as a vaccine and was traditionally used to get rid of dark and negative energies (known as Panema), gain strength, boost the immune system, and kill infections and viruses such as Malaria.


What is kambo?

Kambo (also known as Sapo) is a potent secretion that comes from the cutest, most-friendly Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog (scientific name is Phyllomedusa Bicolor) that lives in the Amazon Rainforest. This legal, 100% ethically harvested and NON-hallucinogenic secretion is the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial, and anesthetic substance found on the planet.

Is kambo safe?

Under the care of a properly trained kambo practitioner, there are no dangers taking kambo. The kambo secretion alone is 100% safe to human beings as it contains 8 identical bioactive peptide families (chain of amino acids that act as a function – like hormones) that are found in the human body.  They are:  

  Dermorphins –  Opioid effects  

  Deltorphins –  Opiod effects   

  Phyllocaerulein – Gastrointestinal and vascular effects.  

  Sauvagine – Gastrointestinal, vascular and behavioral effects

  Phyllomedusin – Vascular effects

  Phyllokinin – Vascular effects

  Dermaseptins – Antimicrobe and Anti-cancerous effects

  Litorins – Gastrointestinal and thermoregulation effects

How It Works:  When the secretion enters the body, the cell receptors recognize it as a natural substance and automatically unlocks to kambo at a cellular level with no stress to the cell. It cleans out deposits left of foreign substances, toxins, and stored emotions that the cell was unable to process alone.   

To ensure everyone’s safety, strict water guidelines given by the practitioner MUST be followed and people who are contraindicated should NOT be taking kambo.  Please read the contraindication list to see if anything applies to you.
