Kambo is a highly intelligent Amazonian treatment that comes from the secretion of the Phyllomedusa bicolor frog. It is a mind-body-spirit treatment that takes you on a transformational journey through healing, de-conditioning, and freedom. You purge on physical and energetic levels to release blockages, harmonize your bodily systems, and raise your vibration. With purgative, immune boosting benefits, it often referred to as Vacina de Floresta, or Vaccine of the Forest. Indigenous tribes in the Amazon have used this medicine throughout history for strength in hunting and for healing. Traditionally, the medicine has been used to clear dark energy known as Panema, which the indigenous believed was the source of all physical and spiritual maladies. Today, the frog has spread to people all over the world for healing, spiritual growth, and research.

The Process

During the process, the secretion is mixed with water and formed into small dots, or “points.” A small, superficial burn is made on the top layer of skin to allow the Kambo to travel into the lymphatic system.


Each experience is different, though it usually begins with a pleasant heat as the medicine scans the body and travels to specific areas, disseminating into the tissues. As the bio-peptides activate in the body, heart rate increases and the face may also swell, differing based on the receiver's level of toxicity.


Next, the effect varies greatly – the cleanse can take on the form of purging, diarrhea, crying, sweating, yawning, or a feeling of electricity as the mind, body, and spirit release both physical and energetic blockages.


Afterwards, you may feel lighter, freer, and more in-tune with the higher self. Days to months later, people usually feel incredibly relaxed with clarity, pain reduction, and ease in life. Throughout the process, tools such as sound therapy and energy work are utilized to guide and protect you.


Rapé and Sananga are often also facilitated in ceremony.

  • Purges deeply-rooted heavy metals, infections, and pharmaceutical toxins

  • Passes through the Blood-Brain Barrier

  • Detoxifies and harmonizes the digestive, endocrine, nervous, reproductive, and lymphatic systems



  • Harmonizes its own intelligence with your spirit

  • Releases trauma and low vibrational energies

  • Raises your vibration and guides you through your transformation


Kambo has been studied in the Western science scene for decades and is contributing to ground-breaking research on many of the most widespread, "incurable" diseases.

Research on the chemical makeup of Kambo has been conducted since the 1960s and has found the medicine’s healing capacities in short chains of amino acids, known as peptides. These bioactive peptides impact the gastrointestinal muscles and blood circulation, as well as stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland in the brain. The known peptides in Kambo have been replicated by pharmaceutical companies, which have over 70 patents in America alone that make up many popular drugs in the market today.

bioactive Peptides

Vittorio Erspamer, an Italian scientists of the University of Rome, studied the secretion beginning in the 1980’s. He isolated the peptides and found their influences on the body as follows:


Phyllokinin & Phyllomedusins

  • Vasodilators that heighten the permeability of the blood-brain barrier (for their own use and for the use of other active peptides)

  • Antimicrobial and antifungal properties


Caeruleins & Sauvagines

  • Contract the colon and bladder

  • Cause tachycardia and a decrease in blood pressure

  • Enhance sensory perception through the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland

  • Increase physical strength and the ability to surpass pain, stress, disease, and fatigue

  • Improve digestion

  • Have analgesic properties

Dermorphin and Deltorphin



  • Works through the adenosine receptors, which is being studied in depression, stroke, and cognitive loss diseases (eg: Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease).



  • Broad-spectrum antimicrobial peptides with lethal effects against fungi species (remarkably the opportunistic filamentous fungi often seen with immunodeficiency syndrome), gram-positive and grand-negative bacteria, yeasts, and protozoa

  • Dermaseptin B2 and B3, which are researched in effect for killing cancer cells (specifically for prohibiting angiogenesis of tumor cells with selective cytotoxicity)



  • Similar to human bradykinin

  • Produce vasodilation, contraction of the non-vascular smooth muscle, and increase vascular permeability

  • Related to inflammatory pain



  • Act on G cells of the stomach to secrete hydrochloric acid

  • Stimulate pancreatic secretion, intestinal myoelectric activity, and smooth muscle contractibility



  • Accelerate gastric, bile and pancreatic secretions



  • Neuropeptides of 4-14 amino acids

The bioactive peptides in Kambo have known effects on the following conditions: 

  • Depression

  • Migraines

  • Blood circulation problems

  • Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

  • Strokes

  • Seizures

  • Vascular insufficiency

  • Organ diseases

  • Cancer

  • Fertility problems

  • Deeply rooted toxins

  • Chronic pain

  • Addiction to opioids or painkillers

  • Fever and infections

  • AIDS

  • Hepatitis

  • Lyme Disease

  • Autoimmune Diseases (remarkably Hashimoto’s)

  • Negative Energies (traditionally known as Panema)
