Kambô-Sapo Cleanse

Phyllomedusa bicolor 

"Gaint Monkey Tree Frog"

Kambô  is a venomous sweat secretion produced by the widely revered giant monkey tree frog (Phyllomedusa bicolor) It can be found in abundant numbers within the deeper parts of the Amazon basin, particularly in Peru, Brazil, Bolivia and Guianas.

Also known as Sapo/ Acate in Peru. Pow-kiet to the matses tribe.

Kambo/Sapo is an ancient jungle technology, historically & traditionally used by the hunters of the tribe to facilitate a cleansing and purgative response within the body,
to catalyze physical and spiritual healing. It is a potent natural antiviral, antibiotic, antimicrobial, analgesic and anti inflammatory susbtance.

The warrior of the tribes work with kambo as an ally to strengthen their immunity, build resilience and increase stamina to gather food for their families. For many kambo is an ally to clear panema (dark cloud/energy) is blamed for bad luck, depression, laziness, irritation, and other adverse states. clearing this cloud is important for indigenous groups that depend on hunting and community coherence. 

History

All the tribes in the region that work with kambo share a similar origin story of how they came across Kambo, One famously known story is based on the legendary pajé (medicine man) Kampu. This shaman is said to have learned about the medicine from a forest spirit (ayahuasca) having exhausted all other means to heal his sickly tribe. According to the Kaxinawá, the spirit of Kampu lives on in the giant monkey frog, continuing to heal any who seek it. 

Whatever the mythical origin, kambo medicine has long been used by indigenous Pano-speaking groups in the Amazon.

It may also have been used by the classical Maya, whose art depicted tree frogs next to mushrooms. Traditional uses include eliminating toxins, increasing strength and stamina, monitoring pregnancy (or inducing abortion), and dispersing negative energy known as panema. In the rainforest, kambo is used as a hunting aid, reducing the need for food and water and minimizing the human scent. Fortified by the “vaccine,” hunters are also thought to emit a strange green light that draws their prey away.

In the 1980s,it was rediscovered in a sense, by journalist Peter Gorman and anthropologist Katharine Milton, both of whom spent time living with the Matsés tribe. They brought kambo to our attention. Thanks to them, we now have access to this powerful healing ally. 

Ethical Harvest

In captivity, the monkey tree frog doesn't produce sapo.

Ethical harvest is paramount for the survival of this creature and for the continuous accessibility of this medicine. The process of collection by the tribe members is a ritual in itself. 

It is a friendly and nocturnal creature that volunteers itself when it hears the tribe calling, giant monkey tree frogs have a distinctive song that gives away its location.

Once caught, the frogs are very docile in nature, often curious about you, its legs are then gently tied by a straw string, spreading them to make an X shape, some members don't tie the frog but collect the medicine while it calmly rest on a branch. It is mildly stressed for a short period of time during the secretion extraction process; it is tickled to produce a milky waxy substance which is placed onto a wooden splinters to dry. The frog is released in gratitude and celebration unharmed, usually taking the frog to the river to rejuvenate them.

The tribes people have an instinctive connection and respect to mother nature, understanding not to take more than what is needed, only careful to take the first lot and to leave enough for the frog to protect itself. The frog doesn't produce sapo - the waxy secretion in captivity, it is essential to be release unharmed into its natural habitat. Any disregard to this creature is a direct retaliation to mother earth which results in negative consequences for their community.

 

Sustainability of the Gaint leaf frog

Currently the species is listed as stable, with the growing popularity and demand for this frog increasing, it may pose a threat to the species if they are unethically removed from their natural habitat, which puts pressure on an ecologically sensitive species. Hence why it is important to consider who your practitioner is and where they receive the medicine. At the heart of sapo, I directly receive my medicine from the Matses tribe, where they are ethically collected and released into the wild. 

With all of that being said, it is significantly important to support the indigenous peoples of the Amazon, whom are the guardians of the rainforest, if we don't carry a sustainable practice and mindset, we would not have the rainforest for the future generations.

CHEMISTRY

Kambo reminds the body to reactivate certain functions while simultaneously removing toxins.

 

 

Why Kambo?

Kambo/Sapo has a range of traditional and potential therapeutic applications, . Commonly described as the "vaccina de floresta" the venomous secretion is known for its powerful emetic or purgative effects. Despite its initial unpleasantness, Kambo is widely sought out to revitalize body and mind.
it contains various bioactive peptides that results in the various sensations that one experiences during a ceremony.
 

Bioactive in layman's terms: your body is able to receive it, as if it created itself, you are experiencing everything that your body essentially makes. Some of the peptides in Kambó are very similar to the same peptides created by the body. Peptides have an affinity binding with receptor sites in humans, similar to a lock opened with the right key, the bioactive peptides illicit specific reactions in the body.  

Common FAQ

Is the kambo secretion toxic? 

None of the peptides contained in kambo is known to be toxic to mammalian cells. However what makes kambo a powerful antibiotic is that the peptides are potentially toxic to viruses, pathogens, fungi and parasites. 

Is kambo safe?

At the heart of sapo, i am trained to safely carry out this procedure. While there are contraindication's that would prevent a small portion of people from sitting with kambo, most people are perfectly fine to receive it.  

Is kambo legal?

It is legal virtually everywhere in the world but Australia. 

How many sessions do I need?

This is dependent on your individual goal. Kambo tends to be highly effective when served as a series.

 One session is the beginning of a conversation between the body and the spirit of Sapo. If it's your first time sitting with kambo, and want to clear away deep emotional debris, I highly recommend committing to a series of three sessions with kambo, which i termed Kambo Trinity. 

However, the medicine of kambo is highly intelligent, there is a conversation that happens between the body and Sapo that surpasses what the mind can comprehend, that one sitting with kambo, even to simply try it, can go so far. Please refer to "spirit micro dose ceremony" if you are curious to try a spirit dose to begin the conversation and still benefit from the bioactive peptides of sapo.

Is it safe to drive after a kambo ceremony?

Yes, most people recover from their session within an hour, some even less. it depends on how you feel and when you are truly ready to drive.
