Kambo, also known as sapo, a kambo circle or kambo ceremony, is a pseudoscientific cleanse or detox. Kambo is the name of a poison secreted by the Phyllomedusa bicolor, an Amazonian tree frog also known as the blue-and-yellow frog, bicolored tree-frog, giant monkey frog, giant leaf frog or waxy-monkey tree frog. The poison’s effects on humans usually include drops in blood pressure, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.Kambo, which originated as a folk medicine practice among indigenous peoples of the Amazon, is also administered as an alternative medicine treatment in the West. The ceremony involves burning the arm or leg skin and applying the poison directly to the burn. Proponents claim that kambo helps with any number of illnesses or injuries.
The kambo experience
After tiny, superficial burn points are made on the skin, the frog secretion is applied. Through the lymphatic system, it travels to the heart to bring one back to a balanced, natural state before moving to the body parts which need it most, restoring wholeness. “People perceive this as intense heat.
Sometimes they get cramps or feel pain in the body, until they reach a point where they feel so nauseated they need to purge. With the purge comes relief, and the completion of the ceremony. Yet, the medicine continues to work.”
Kambo purifies, detoxifies, cleanses and reboots the immune system. “From a metaphysical perspective, since frogs can’t endure toxic environments, it challenges us to release emotions like anger, hatred and bitterness; emotions holding us back. It brings about restoration, renewal, transformation, and even metamorphosis”.
Possible 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:
- Blood circulation problems
- Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
- Vascular insufficiency
- Organ diseases
- 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
- Negatives energies
- Inmune illness
- Anorexia and bulimia
