What is Kambo?

Kambo is a secretion from one of the largest Hylid frogs known as the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog. Its scientific name is Phyllomedusa Bicolor. The frog is nocturnal and arboreal and due to the fact that it has no natural predators is found in abundance across the Upper Amazon rainforest areas of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela.

The only known threats to this species of frog at the moment are spawn predation and the potential destruction of their habitat.

Scientist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome who was nominated for the Nobel prize wrote that the Kambo secretion contains a “fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian”. Erspamer went on to say that ‘Among the several dozen peptides found in kambô, up to 7% are bio-active.’ They bind with receptor sites situated in the brain, triggering chemical reactions in the human body. So far, researchers have found nine bio- active peptides that have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland. The Kambo peptides discovered by Erspamer trigger a variety of beneficial chemical reactions in the human body. Kambo has the ability, unlike many other natural and pharmaceutical substances, to cross the blood-brain barrier, enabling it to reach deep into the body and bring support to otherwise difficult to treat areas. Human cells open up to the beneficial properties of Kambo unlike many substances that are filtered and eliminated by the body’s highly intelligent defense system. Thus far, researchers have discovered nine peptides, some of which are bio-active – meaning that they perform specific functions in the body. These peptides perform hormone-like tasks while others provide support to vital cellular processes. Some of these peptides have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland. Many peptides have since been isolated from the Kambo secretion and have been synthesized. As a testament to their medicinal properties, there are over now over 70 Kambo related patents lodged.

Kambo is said to be the great revealer. Many have described their Kambo experiences as a genuine rebirth. Kambo helped them to reignite their courage and to acknowledge themselves on a deeper level, letting go of that which was holding them back and allowing them to embrace their highest happiness. It will change you. Kambo brings clarity, strength, insights and can deliver a deeply transformative experience.

The frog is a Universal symbol of the embracing of personal power. It reminds us not to become bogged down with day-to-day living. Give the frog and Kambo the support and energy needed to reclaim your true nature and allow yourselves to simply shine. Kambo has never failed to bring change.

Whether Kambo has you purging, sweating, shaking, crying or in a state of bliss, you can be sure that change is in progress.

Kambo Contradictions –

Kambo is very safe when given by a properly trained practitioner. However there are some conditions for which Kambo is contraindicated. This is not an exhaustive list. It is important to consult a properly trained and skilled practitioner if you have any concerns. Suitability for Kambo may occasionally depend the constitution of the person receiving Kambo. Those who we contraindicate include  people who:
  • Have serious heart problems or have had heart surgery (Stents are fine)
  • Are on medication for low blood pressure
  • Have had a stroke or a brain haemorrhage
  • Have an aneurism or blood clot(s)
  • Lack the mental capacity to make the decision to take Kambo
  • Have serious mental health problems, excluding depression, PTSD and anxiety
  • Are undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or who had undergone it within the last 4 weeks
  • Take immune-suppressants for organ transplant
  • Have Addison’s Disease
  • Have current and severe epilepsy
  • Are recovering from a major surgical procedure
  • Are under 18 years old
  • Are pregnant or maybe so or are breast-feeding a child under 6 months old.

Research conducted since 1980 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 definitely back up kambo’s efficacy, the properties of kambo peptides made it 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

Addition to opiate or prescription pain killers. Kambo reduces physical pain, thus helping people kick their addictions to other pain killers.

Fever and infections

Negative energies. Traditionally known as “panema.”

Sacred Rapé Snuff

Rapé is sacred shamanic snuff medicine, which is pronounced ‘ha-peh’ in English. Also, it’s known to be casually referred to as ‘hape’, ‘hapi’ or ‘rapay” by some Western people.

They are very rare, sacred, powerful, precious, profoundly healing and cleansing miracle medicines. They are made in a very sacred and labour intensive process, and consist of various Amazonian medicinal plants, trees, leaves, seeds, and other sacred ingredients. Some types of rapé are made by various indigenous tribes, who originate from different South American countries – primarily Brazil and Peru.

Traditionally, they are applied by using a pipe made from bamboo or bone, which is blown through each nostril on both sides. It’s suggested that you use them within a quiet sacred space without any interruptions (optional sacred music playing) – sitting upright, either cross-legged or in a chair with eyes closed after application. Also, suggested slow breathing after application through the mouth/nose is very important.

Generally, they have the following effects – profoundly helps to re-align and open all your chakras, improves your grounding, releases any sickness on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, opens-up the third eye, de-calcifies the pineal gland, clears any mental confusion, releases any negative thoughts, removes any entities, connects you to your divine breath, and elevates your connection with Spirit.

Please note that some may experience purging, bowel movements and excess saliva, which is normal – where stuck energy, toxins and sickness are being released from your energetic and physical bodies. You may need a bucket, tissue and drinking water.

Each different type of rapé has different vibrations, notes, qualities, subtleties, and very different effects on the energetic field. Furthermore, after you develop a deeper relationship with each rapé – they are powerful Plant teacher spirits, where you can ask any questions or hold specific intentions for each sacred session.

Sacred Sananga Drops

Sananga is made from the roots and bark of the Tabernaemontana sananho shrub, part of the Iboga family, and comes directly from the Kaxinawá and Yawanawá tribes. The drops are infused with intentions of absolute clarity and focus. This sacred and potent medicine is used for healing physical and spiritual ailments, by clearing your mind and energies and gaining a complete new way of perception and focus. These sacred eye drops come directly from the Yawanawa Tribe.

Usage and Medicinal Effects:

The pure spirit of Sananga supports a deep cleansing of blocked energies on emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Sananga can balance and increase your energies and find the roots of your diseases and blockages, leading to a complete equilibrium, focus and peace of mind. The drops will expand your spiritual vision and awareness, and enhance your ability to read other people´s intentions.

Also, Sananga increases your long-range vision, which is important for visualizations and predictions of the future. The drops are also used to cure and improve a broad range of ocular problems like myopia, depth and color perception, definition of images, and detection accuracy. Furthermore, this magical medicine is indicated in cases of severe eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataract, and blindness. As these drops can exert such powerful effects on your visualization.

Even though Sananga is known for its effects on vision and visualization, this medicine is considered to be an indigenous all-purpose remedy.

Sananga is often used to cure skin illnesses, addictions, suppress appetite, ease dental problems, and counteract snakebite wounds and poisoning, cure eye wounds and rheumatism, as well as end negative thought patterns.

Another important curative aspect of the Apocynaceae family is its widely explored antimicrobial activity, which showed that this family has strong antioxidant, anticancer, fever reducing, anti-inflammatory, anti-mycobacterial and antimicrobial effects.

Active ingredients and effects:

Sananga eye drops contain an abundance of alkaloids, whereof the most potent active ingredient is ibogaine, which has long lasting and powerful effects on your mind, enabling powerful introspection and re-alignment. Apart from ibogaine, several other alkaloids, such as coronaridine, quebrachidine, heyneanine, 3-hydroxycoronaridine, ibogamine and voacangine are contained in Sananga. All of these alkaloids have powerful psychoactive effects and can exert strong antibiotic effects.

There can be slight differences in the composition of Sananga: the Becchete from the Matsés tribe contains Tabernaemontana undulata roots, whereas the Sananga eye drops from the Kaxinawá tribe contains sananho roots. Both of these roots are known to produce strong vision.

Spiritual Understandings:

Sananga has been used by the indigenous tribes of Brazil for hunting within the Amazon jungle to feed their families and tribes. To help sharpen their vision, awareness and extra sensory perceptions to stay focused and strong. In this way we can apply this to our life. Using these sacred drops to heal what they call Panema. Lack of drive, motivation or focus, laziness, depression, sadness, bad luck and negative energetic influences that attract difficulties and disease.

Improves the vision, extending the connection into the spiritual realms. On an energetic level Sananga works to open up the inner vision of the third eye, helps to decalcify and activate the pineal gland. Clears negative thought patterns and mental confusion. Cleansing the physical, emotional and energetic fields, Sananga aids in aligning and cleansing the chakras and the aura while removing negative entities and energies.

Sananga helps to cleans on very deep levels and is such a beautiful powerful plant to work with. Many have noticed an increase in the capacity for their vision improving physically and energetically after the use of Sananga.

I look forward to sharing these sacred and life altering medicines with you if called to do so.
