What is kAMBO?
Kambo is the secretion of the Giant Maki Frog (Phyllomedusa Bicolor). It has been used for millennia by many indigenous tribes of the Amazon Rainforest for various healing purposes. In the last few years it has been increasingly recognized and valued outside of the Amazon as a holistic remedy, for example in Germany where experiencing Kambo - and its healing and transformative effects - is possible more and more.
The application begins with slightly burning the skin with a glowing wooden stick, which removes the upper layers of the skin and exposes the lymph. The secretion is then applied onto the skin. It then sets off a process of physical, emotional, mental and energetic cleansing. During this process symptoms such as heavy sweating, vomiting and defecation may be produced. The process of Kambo is short and intense. People who have experienced Kambo report of many positive effects on the body, the mind and one’s energy.
