From the mysterious amazon jungle, where the spirit of ayahuasca lives, Kambo is the venom of a small green frog found in the rainforest. Amazingly only in its natural habitat of the amazon does the frogs body produce the venom we use at the retreat as medicine.
The reaction of the human body with the frog venom causes an extreme cleanse of toxins from the body, especially the liver. In shamanic healing we believe that when the body has toxins which are not completely removed during healing, the illnesses whether mental, physical, emotional or spiritual are likely to re-manifest themselves. These could be as simple and bothersome as recurring colds, viruses or allergies or more chronic like pain, arthritis and cancers.
For centuries tribes in the Amazon have utilized kambo to upkeep moral, illness prevention and before hunting as protection. As a precursor to the hunt it is used guard the hunter in one of the most predatory jungles of the world. For the tribal hunter the frogs venom is a shield against infection, bacterias and gives them the stamina needed to survive.
However, the spirit of the frog is a strong but gentle protector. Kambo frog has a sweet song, known by few but called by many, to the healings and protections it offers. The venom cannot be synthesized because it’s strength is from the amazon, her spirit and her plants.
People come from all over the world to heal their minds, body’s and hearts with kambo. Though we may be more modern than the tribes we often seem to suffer more because of our disconnect from nature. Kambo frog venom has been known to cure the incurable. Whether that be depressions, cancer, infertility, blood diseases, arthritis, auto immune diseases, chronic pain and more.
Along with ayahuasca, Kambo begins to initiate a true healing process to help us to begin feeling and seeing the world with greater peace, clarity and gentle strength.
