Benefits Of Kambo
Do I need a Detox?
While little clinical research has been conducted to validate the effects of Kambo, ceremony participants report revitalization of the body and mind following. Its effects can be intense during the detox ceremony but is deeply transformative on many levels as it detoxes and removes blocks that prevent us from living to our fullest potential. As Kambo becomes more popular, more research is being conducted.
The vibration of the shamanic medicine called Kambo, which is a secretion taken from a jungle frog. This vibration helps to purge one of their emotional agony and suffering, what the natives used to call “panema”. Because of this, it is a superior healer for the heart. It also strengthens the immune system and causes a catharsis, whereby the being releases all that serves to keep it stuck or low.
How Does Kambo Work?
The Kambo frog secretion contains a myriad of bioactive peptides, with impressive anecdotal evidence to indicate a multitude of benefits for people with the following conditions:
Purity and Allignment
While “hunting” in the West is hardly a necessity, there are many reasons why the ‘hunt’ is on for the beneficial effects of this powerful healing experience. Many who have used Kambo report monumental shifts in overall mental, physical, and spiritual health. In these fast-paced times, Kambo holds the potential to support a wide variety of wellness needs. It is one of the most robust ways to strengthen the immune system and harmonize the endocrine, digestive, and lymphatic system. As a result, the liver, intestines, blood and lymph are detoxed. This Amazonian medicine is one of the most potent natural ways to restore the immune system, and one of nature’s strongest anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances on the planet.
People which a variety of physical ailments report improvement and sometimes even miraculous recovery from things such as depression, addiction, autoimmune diseases, chronic illnesses, Crohn’s disease, Lyme disease and even what the natives called “Panema” or bad luck!
Kambo is non-hallucinogenic but still delivers a subtle, yet powerful spiritual shift for many. In addition to alleviating emotional trauma, self-awareness heightens, leading to motivation in making positive changes to daily habits. Often, a feeling of being cleansed emerges, accompanied by a new sense of calm and clarity. Deeper connection with self and the world, alignment, and renewal can result from even one treatment. Some even claim that the external world is mysteriously affected by doing Kambo. Strong synchronicities start to emerge, and many have an undeniable belief that the frog is responsible.
Kambo is considered an “ordeal medicine,” meaning that it is an active healing process. Consciousness, choice, and prayer is involved in the healing process, as most people will be brought to face their fears during their first Kambo treatment. All illnesses originate from internal conflict, possibly between mind, body, and spirit, or between one side of the body and the other. Dis-ease occurs in the places we are unaware of, the shadows, Therefore, we do shadow work. Kambo is a revealer, bringing light to dark places.
Kambo works well for most, but not everyone
Despite the intense physical symptoms that Kambo produces, it is quite safe when administered by an experienced practitioner. As with even the safest medicines, there are some contraindications. Those with heart conditions, Addison’s disease, receiving chemotherapy or individuals in very poor health may not tolerate the treatment very well.
Further medical contraindications include individuals with organ transplant, and those with Aneurysms, stroke or brain hemorrhage. Caution is practiced for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or menstruating at the time of Kambo treatment.
However, Kambo seems to be quite helpful for most people, regardless of their complaints.
Western And Scientific Interest In Kambo
The first western considerations of Kambo use were made by a French priest, Father Constantin Tastevin, in 1025 while staying with the Kaxinawá tribe in Brazil. In the 1980s, an American anthropologist, Katherine Milton, observed Kambo use among the Mayoruna tribe in Brazil and Italian scientist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome was first to analyze Kambo in a laboratory in 1980. He described the Phyllomedusa bicolor contains a fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian, a treasure of bioactive peptides. Different from countless other natural and pharmaceutical substances, Kambo has the facility to span the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to penetrate significantly into the body. This allows Kambo to promote s support to areas usually challenging to access and extremely powerful in treating dis-ease.
The scientific and medical community has always been fascinated by medicines from the Amazon due to their potential power and effectiveness. Much research is still being conducted with the frog secretion and its capability, yet the scientific and medical community has not been able to repeat the results of Kambo in a non-native construct. Many pharmaceutical companies have tried to synthesize and patent Kambo but have struggled developing medications. If you remove the frog from its environment, or the medicine from the ceremony, you simply will not receive the benefits of healing power of this sacred indigenous medicine.
Since its discovery in the Western world, scientists have been racing to identify chemical compounds in the cocktail the frog secretes from its skin. The secretion of hundreds of bioactive peptide molecules. Some have opioid receptor binding activity, as well as adenosine interactive peptides. Peptides are a short chain of amino acids that bind to human cell receptors. Many display powerful antibiotic, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory and pain killing properties. The peptides in Kambo attach to the neurons in the somatic nervous system and stimulate and cleanse muscle fibers throughout the body.
