We are honored to support you in your journey towards self-discovery and healing through the use of sacred practices. Kambo is a beautiful healing ritual used mainly in South America, named after the poisonous secretions of the giant monkey frog, or Phyllomedusa bicolor. The frog secretes the substance as a defense mechanism to kill or subdue animals that try to eat it. Indigenous people have used kambo for centuries to heal and cleanse the body by strengthening its natural defenses and warding off bad luck. It was also believed to increase stamina and hunting skills. The peptides in kambo are noxious to the human body, so the immune system becomes hyperactive in an attempt to purge the toxicant from your system—hence, the vomiting, inflammation, and severe flu-like symptoms. Many practitioners describe 3 kambo treatments as “the vaccination,” due to its ability to intensely activate the immune system. It is highly advisable to complete the vaccine inside one Moon cycle for best results.
Ceremony typically begins with Rapé administration, followed by the application of Sananga on the eyes. Before proceeding with the Kambo application, the participant will drink about 3 liters of water. During the kambo treatment, Maria Camila will burn a series of spots on the skin with a piece of charred wood. Next, dried kambo is applied to the open wounds. From the wound, the kambo enters the lymphatic system and bloodstream, where it’s said to race around the body scanning for problems. Within mere minutes, the peptides in the kambo trigger an intense immune response, similar to allergic anaphylaxis. Throughout the ceremony Maria Camila will supervise your process and guide you, using oils, incenses, and other shamanic tools that will help enhance your experience. Lastly, you will receive a south bath to relax and restore the body.

Research conducted since the 1980s has shown the chemical makeup of kambo to contain short chains of amino acids, known as peptides, that affect gastrointestinal muscles and blood circulation as well as stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland in the brain. While there are no clinical studies that definitively back up kambo’s efficacy, the properties of kambo peptides suggest it may be a promising treatment for the following conditions:
-Blood circulation problems
-Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
-Deeply rooted toxins
-Addiction to opiate or prescription painkillers (Kambo reduces physical pain, thus helping people kick their addictions to other painkillers)
-Fever and infections
