The secretion from one of the largest Hylid Frogs, known as the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog. It's scientific name is Phyllomedusa Bicolor. Kambo is a purging medicine, which helps mentally, physically and spiritually by removing toxins. It is a deep detox, also removing "Hucha" - dark energy. The medicine has many peptides that help with a vast array of ailments.
My first experience with Kambo
I discovered Kambo back in October 2016. My friend had spoken about it & I thought she was bonkers! Why would anyone want to be burned with a small stick, have this frog secretion put on the burns & then purge for half an hour, she must be mad i thought! My health still terrible with pain, fatigue & not able to sleep on my right side due to arthritis in my hip, my back was in constant pain due to the fibro! Then one day I decided to take a look on line & see what I could find? so i started researching Kambo & other shamanic medicine & shamanic healing! it scared me but excited me at the same time, could this Amazonian medicine really work? Finally I agreed & had my first Kambo ceremony, what could i lose from trying this medicine? I'll tell you what I lost... I lost a lot of my pain & inflammation, I lost my aggressiveness & short temper, what did I gain?.. A feeling of tranquillity, I was calm, happy I became very mindful of others.
As I sat in the ceremony my heart racing feeling apprehensive, the practitioner put 6 burns on my back & 1 on my hip, ouch "yes it hurt a bit" What was I letting myself in for?, they started to put the medicine on to the burns, I sat for a few minutes feeling fine & then they decided to put another burn on me, seriously I thought? Then I felt the medicine rushing up the back of neck, the heat coming over me was so intense! Then the purging began, this was intense, but to be honest I had so many health issues I was expecting worse! 20 minutes had passed then suddenly tears rolled down my cheeks, why was I crying? Is this normal i wondered? They took the medicine off after about 30 minutes & I just sat sobbing for half an hour I had no idea why, I wasn't sad. Then they said id been not only healing physically but emotionally, It was my way of releasing the negative emotions that needed shifting from years of upset, hurt & anger! I knew at this moment i needed to learn how to become a Kambo practitioner! I then went to lay down & i actually laid on my right side, I had hardly no pain, id gone from an 8/10 down to a 2/10. I was totally blown away!
Less than a year on I trained with the IAKP to become a Kambo Practitioner & In 2018 I travelled to Iquitos in Peru to train further & to deepen my connection to the "Spirit of Kambo" I work with a mix of techniques from which I have learned from both IAKP & using the knowledge & guidance from the Matse Tribe & guidance from the "spirit of Kambo".
