Kambo is known as the ''Vaccine of the Forest'' for its ability to strengthen and revitalize our whole being. It is a deep cleansing therapy that works on all levels – physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. 


The effects will be noticeable shortly after the secretion is applied onto the burned area (usually after 1- 2 min). Rarely it might take a longer time, or the dose might have to be adjusted. The Kambo medicine goes straight into the lymphatic system and from there into the bloodstream. 

The effects can differ from person to person and from treatment to treatment.

There is a wide range of symptoms that can be triggered by Kambo but never all at once or with the same intensity. 

In most cases, the first effect is that the blood flushes up into the head. This will be perceived as heat in the facial area and the rest of the body. Sometimes this can be accompanied by a fastening of the heart beat, very often followed by nausea and vomiting. Usually the water you drank before comes first, followed by a variety of slimy, milky, yellow, orange, green, dark green, brown or sometimes even black liquids and bile. There is also a need to defecate quite often. There will be often a swelling in the facial area and the neck region. The intensity of these swellings can vary, but in most cases it will subside relatively fast. Expectorant cough (especially when dealing with lung disease) can also occur. The treatment is often accompanied by sweating - this is just another way of how the body gets rid of toxins.

Eye discharge, chills, cramps, dizziness, numbness in the hands and physical weakness can occur symptomatically. Sometimes someone might feel a need to scream or cry. Kambo is pulling not only physical but emotional toxins that need to be released. The symptoms might vary in quality and quantity depending on the individual, the area the medicine will work on and the dose.  

Usually the most intense part of the treatment will only take between 15 - 30 minutes and only in very few cases it might take a bit longer or a bit shorter.

All in all, you will go through a short "discomfort" during the treatment and excrete a lot of toxins through all pores and orifices. Even though you might feel weak after this process you will recover quickly, very similar to the frog itself. 



Most likely you’ll feel great, though you may be tired. It is recommended to eat and rest after ceremony. You’ll be able to drive, but leave time to relax and don’t make big plans for the rest of the day if you can avoid it. In the days and weeks following, people often report increased senses, positive mood, high stamina, quick reaction time, emotional breakthroughs, clarity, motivation, and less stress.

The positive effects of the Kambo can sometimes already be perceived straight after the treatment or in some cases it can also take until the next day one may feel an increased energy level, inner peace, clarity of mind and healing of the body. Some people report that their well-being improved from day to day, or in some cases that it even took up to two weeks for an improvement became noticeable.

Kambo works with your intention and what is most needed in the moment. Upon receiving it, the medicine scans your body and goes where it’s most needed. Working with the Frog Spirit is a very personal relationship and will vary every time, depending upon your intention and what the spirit is calling for.

As a kambo practitioner trained in the Amazon jungle I combine Matses tradicion with modern approach. 
The Kambo I use is ethically sourced by the Matses tribe of Peru who are one of the main guardians of this secret medicine.
