Is Kambo safe?

Kambo is completely safe when used properly under the care of a trained practitioner. The only potential harm is when there is undisclosed information about substances taken prior to the session, as there are a few contraindications. Please always inform your practitioner of all medication, supplements and any other substances taken in the six months months prior. Also know that mental illnesses are important to discuss with the practitioner prior to the session.

What is Kambo traditionally used for?

Traditionally, kambo is used to treat many things, including physical maladies and “Panema” which translates to “bad luck”. When someone is unwell with a virus or disease like malaria, they are given Kambo. In some tribes, the women use the secretion for reproductive issues and abortion. Both men and women can use Kambo if they are having difficulty finding a lover or partner. Some tribes give Kambo to their children if they are lazy or affected with some sort of physical issue affecting their stamina and drive, and the Kambo can help shift this. Hunting magic is yet another use. Before the men go out to hunt, they’ll have Kambo to sharpen their senses. It has also been used as a treatment for snake bites.

What are the benefits of Kambo?

Research conducted since the 1980s has shown the chemical makeup of kambo 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. While there are no clinical studies that definitively back up kambo’s efficacy, the properties of kambo peptides suggest it may be a promising treatment for the following conditions:
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 Negative energies (traditionally known as “panema”)
