Contra-Indication

Who can take Kambô healing treatments?

Kambô is very safe when responsibly administered by an experienced practitioner. Regardless of Kambôs enormous benefits, Kambô is a sacred medicine and is not used as a quick fix. Certain health conditions prevent the use of Kambô.The following is not an exhaustive list of contraindicationed conditions.

Certain health conditions prevent some people from taking Kambô just like some situations require special precautions. I advise you to carefully read through the lists. It is very important that you disclose your health history prior to taking Kambô. If something is not clear or you don’t understand, I am more than happy to speak with you over the phone.  

 

During our consultation, you will be asked to provide a list of all supplements, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs and disclose any known medical or mental conditions that have been or are currently present. This is for your own safety and for the proper treatment protocol to be used.

It is not at all uncommon for Kambô to reveal a physical issue by bringing it to the surface. When there is a serious medical condition, there can be additional time needed for your system to stabilize after taking Kambô.
