SACRED KAMBO CEREMONIES
Individualized Sessions for Your Optimal Experience
WHAT IS KAMBO?
Kambo is secreted by the Phyllomedusa Bicolor frog in the Amazon. It has been used for centuries by the indigenous tribes and contains multiple peptides and amino acids that cross the blood brain barrier.
While pharmaceuticals only treat the physical, kambo heals on the physical, energetic, and spiritual level. This medicine is so intelligent, it knows just where to go in your body and it has been used to heal just about anything that creates dis-ease. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, cancer, parasitic infections, viral illnesses, fertility issues, hepatitis, HIV, migraines, organic brain diseases, skin and eye issues, chronic pain... kambo is now being studied by scientists and shows promise in many areas to help bring the mind, body, and spirit back into balance.
Kambo works through the lymphatic system to clear both physical and energetic toxins from the body. It gets to the root of illness and clears the body of "panema" - negative energy that creates disease and bad luck. It is one of the world’s most effective and natural antibiotics and immune system boosters. It detoxifies the liver and intestines, improves mental functioning, and dissolves emotional blocks. It also helps to reset our cellular memory. It will help you resolve trauma, release fear, and find motivation to bring your life into a higher vibration so you will attract a greater abundance of financial, physical, and spiritual wealth.
HOW IS KAMBO APPLIED?
It's important you are well hydrated so before you arrive, you will drink two liters of water. We will also have conducted a thorough review of your health history and will have spoken about your intention. Intention, as with any intelligent medicine, is a key part of your optimal experience. Once you arrive, we will go deep into your intention to get to the root of your current issues. This will make your experience much more powerful and effective.
I use the vine the frog lives on to make small burn marks on the arms or legs. I do not apply to chakra points or to the spine as my teachers believe this to be dangerous and unnecessary. The medicine is mixed in the traditional way with your DNA-containing saliva, which exponentially increases its potency in your body, and is applied to the burns for twenty minutes. You will experience flushing, rapid heart rate, changes in blood pressure, and flu-like symptoms. Purging through vomiting, stooling, and sweating are most common and this purge is how you detoxify. The burns will make small whitish-colored scars, and most people seem to really like them. We will take care to ensure that the marks are placed in a way that you will feel comfortable.
I will be there to ensure your safety and support you with sage, mapacho, agua florida, rattles, and traditional songs from the jungle. After twenty minutes, I will remove the medicine and treat your burns with Sangre de Dragon. You will then rest and recover and I will serve you fresh fruits to help you replenish. After a short rest period, you should be ready to get on with the rest of your day. I recommend being gentle with yourself and allowing for a lot of rest and integration time. I will be available to you for further support if needed.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
I began working with kambo on a personal level several years ago. Kambo has helped me to feel younger, lighter, and brighter. I have shed so many layers of fear, ego, and self-doubt through this medicine. I have also worked through issues of chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and parasitic and viral infections. Kambo is my vaccine and my immune-booster. It keeps me both physically and energetically strong so I am able to ward off both physical and energetic threats. I typically use kambo once a month to keep my body tuned up and to keep my mind, body, and spirit in balance.
Four years ago, I began apprenticing with various practitioners... two trained through IAKP and one trained in the jungle. I then found my teacher, Omar, who is one of only a few people in the world to be initiated by the Matses tribe in the Amazon and given the blessing to teach their way of serving this medicine. After receiving my basic training in Mexico, I went deep into the Amazonian jungle for my advanced training. Here I learned to call to the frogs and to harvest the medicine directly. All of my medicine is procured in a safe and humane way with the highest intention to protect the frogs and the jungle. I have a very close relationship with the frog and with this medicine and I am honored to be initiated into a traditional lineage which upholds the integrity of the medicine path.
KAMBO AND AYAHUASCA
Kambo is an excellent way to prepare the mind and body for the effects of ayahuasca. It is said the purging process experienced during Kambo can help reduce the amount of purging in the ayahuasca ceremonies. It also helps clear the energy and prepare the mind for the psychological effects of ayahuasca. The connection between Kambo and Ayahuasca is special – being that the spirit of ayahuasca is what, according to legend, brought about the knowledge of Kambo use and its incredible benefits.
There are many legends about the origins of Kambo use, but the most widely accepted story comes from Brazil. According to Kaxinawa legend, the local village fell dangerously ill to an unknown disease. The village Shaman, Kampu, tried every known medicinal herb and remedy to cure them but none were effective in providing relief from their illness. In desparation Kampu sought guidance from the medicine ayahuasca. While in the forest and under the guidance of the sacred medicine, he was visited by the Great Spirit who presented him with the frog and gave him the knowledge to cure his village. The divine spirit then taught him how to extract a white secretion and apply it to his village. Kampu returned and did as he was instructed, curing his village of their ailment. After Kampu’s death, it is said his spirit entered the frog and remains there today to help aid and protect the people of the forest.
I have many years of experience with entheogens, in both my personal journey as well as in the facilitator role, and I specialize in the integration process. I can serve as an excellent resource and guide when it comes to combining sacred medicines. We will take into account your entire story- your current health status, your intentions, and your history with sacred medicines -and decide what is most optimal for you.
IS KAMBO DANGEROUS?
While there have been deaths associated with kambo, toxicology reports show that kambo has not been the cause. However there have been incidents connected to kambo due to other factors such as drinking too much water, mixing other substances, not following protocol, and not heeding contraindications. The only time any incident has happened is when the person taking it has not been honest and has not followed the dieta. Kambo is an extremely safe medicine when applied appropriately. It is given in the jungle to children as young as two years old. Kambo is legal in the United States as well as all other countries, and it is not a hallucinogenic.

When you come to my ceremony, you are ensured you are getting the best possible experience as I have advanced training, am a registered nurse and shamanic practitioner, and belong to a kambo organization which holds me responsible to keep up with additional training and continuing education.
It is generally recommended that you receive three treatments within a 28-day period and you may need them more often if you are suffering from an acute illness. After your initial inoculation, it is best to receive kambo monthly to maintain good physical, mental, and emotional health.
The first session is generally $150. The rate is $400 for the 3x inoculation in 28 days. Packages are available at reduced rates if you would like to maintain a monthly or bi-monthly regime. I also work on a sliding scale for veterans, students, and retired or unemployed individuals.
