WHAT IS KAMBO?
Kambo is used by the indigenous tribes to eliminate Panema. Panema is a term for dark, heavy or negative energy. Such as bad luck, illness, depression, laziness or a lost / empty feeling. Panema is something that blocks progress in a person's life. The lifting of this dark cloud is one of the main reasons why the tribesmen use Kambo. Kambo is also used for hunting as it increases strength, speed and stamina and makes the hunter invisible to their prey by temporarily eliminating human scent. Medical use of Kambo among the Amazonian tribes includes the most common diseases in their environment such as: malaria, snake bites, fever, fertility problems, physical pain, inflammation, viral and bacterial infections.
Kambo is a secretion of one of the largest Hylid frogs. The frog lives high in trees, in the wetlands of the Amazon. The scientific name of this frog is Phyllomedusa Bicolor. The frog is also called the "Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog". The males are about 9-10 cm and the females can grow to 11-12 cm. The back is bright green and their belly creamy white. They have dark spots on their chest, flank and legs.
The frog has few natural enemies and is still found in abundance in the rainforest areas of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela. The main threats the frog has at the moment is the possible destruction of their habitat.

POSSIBLE BENEFITS OF CAMBO
The interesting properties of Kambo include its anti-inflammatory effects and its ability to destroy various types of microbes and viruses. Several years of research have shown that Kambo contains several antimicrobial peptides that are effective against bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses and cancer cells. It is therefore seen as a strong natural antibiotic.
Kambo can operate in three different areas:
Physical: Kambo is a natural way to strengthen the immune system and can reduce many complaints. It is analgesic and blood pressure lowering. It detoxifies the liver and intestines. Kambo is active against viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and cancer cells.
Mentally: Kambo often gives you a better mood, more alertness, more clarity, focus, energy and an increased resistance to stress, fatigue, hunger and thirst in the short term. Kambo can help you to remove blockages on an emotional level.
Energetic: Kambo clears the energy field and balances the chakras, making it easier for us to break negative habits.
Kambo can have a positive effect on the following physical and mental illnesses:
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
Eye and skin problems
Mogelijke voordelen kambo
Kambo's secretion contains dozens of peptides and neuropeptides, the main ones being:
Phyllomedusin has a strong effect on the intestines and contributes to a deep detoxification at the cellular level.
Phyllokinin and Phyllomedusin are powerful substances that dilate the blood vessels and increase the permeability of the blood-brain barrier. This facilitates access to the brain of the other active peptides. When Kambo enters the body, the cell receptors open, so the peptide is stored in the cell.
Caerulein and Sauvagine cause a drop in blood pressure with tachycardia. They stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland, which contributes to increased sensory perception and increased stamina. Both peptides have strong analgesic effects, improve endurance, increase overall physical strength and enhance the ability to deal with pain and stressful situations. They can aid digestion and have an analgesic effect on people with renal colic, pain due to peripheral vascular insufficiency and cancer pain.
Dermorphine and deltorphine are powerful opioid peptides that are 30 to 40 times stronger than morphine and 40 times stronger than endogenous b-endorphins, without addictive effects.
Tachykinins - Support and regulation of the immune system
Dermaseptin - Antiviral and there is compelling evidence that it is useful as a cancer treatment.
HOW DOES A KAMBO SESSION GO?
During the session you will drink 1.5 to 2 liters of water. A series of small holes (ports) are made in the top thin layer of the skin. You can see this as small burns made with a kind of incense stick. The skin is then gently rubbed off to expose the underlying skin. The number and position of the gates varies from person to person. The dried Kambo is now mixed with a small amount of water and divided into small balls, or dots. These are placed on the gates. The minor burns are later covered with Dragon's Blood *.
Most people quickly experience a warm, hot flush on the face and upper body. You now also feel your heart pounding in your body and head. After this, everyone can respond in different ways. Sometimes you may feel a little dizzy and start to shake a bit, sometimes you may pass out.
Kambo races around your body, it scans your body for problems and then goes straight to work in those areas. You may experience a throbbing or burning sensation in those areas for a short time. Some people may feel some stomach ache. After that you will have to throw up and sometimes defecate.
Kambo is intense but fast. The unpleasant effects are strong and intense, but only last about 20 to 40 minutes. After a fairly short time, usually after an hour or so, you will feel much better and can eat and drink normally again. Depending on your health condition, the real benefits will be felt after about a day.
