“The cure for pain is in the pain.” – Rumi
Kambô is known as the “vaccine of the Forest.” It is a purgative waxy secretion from a large green tree frog known as the “Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog or Phyllomedusa Bicolor” which is native to the Amazonian Basin. It is one of the strongest ways to empower and modulate the immune system. A known powerful natural antibiotic and anesthetic. In the Amazon it is used for killing off bad bacteria, viruses and parasites.
It has potent anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties. Its amazing properties allows the mind to think clearly as Kambô helps release toxins and/or clouded thoughts that were keeping you stuck and resistant to change, it allows for a more focused and still mind, the body feels rejuvenated, energized and an increased resistance to stress.
On a spiritual level, Kambô helps to integrate our mind with our heart and soul and used by indigenous tribes to heal and strengthen the body, to ward off the enemy, to rid one of laziness, lack of desire, sadness, mental, spiritual and physical weakness, low self-esteem and disharmony with nature. In the Amazon Rainforest, this medicine is known to bring happiness to those who take it, to bring luck, and to unblock and circulate the heart chakra among many other benefits.
Kambô has a natural intelligence. Upon receiving it, the medicine scans your body and goes where it’s most needed. Working with the Frog Spirit is a very unique and personal relationship and will vary every time, depending upon your intention, what your higher self is calling for as well as what it feels is most needed in the moment. Upon entering your body, the frog spirit scans your body and answers the call of where help is needed the most.
As the secretion of the frog is introduced into our body, its Spirit gifts us with the power to cast off parasitic energies that prey on body, mind and spirit. Once free of these energies, it is common to see our natural health returned. Synchronicities and good luck are also a common effect after Kambô. Panema—term used by the Amazonian tribes describes a negative energy that gathers over time. Traditionally visualized as a kind of dense grey cloud or aura, panema is blamed for bad luck, depression, laziness, irritation, and other adverse states. Naturally, clearing this cloud is vital for indigenous groups that depend on hunting and community coherence. For many, Kambô serves this purpose. Outside of traditional contexts, the dissipation of panema is framed in terms of “clearing the pain body,” “realigning the chakras,” or reorganizing personal psychology.
