The Benefits of Kambo

The main purpose of a Kambo Ceremony is to cleanse and purify. Kambo works to purify the physical body of toxins and the emotional body of negative energy, traumas and old belief patterns. There is an intelligence in the secretion of Kambo that responds to the intention one sets before receiving it. Many say that the benefits they receive from a series of ceremonies far outweigh the small period of discomfort.

Traditionally Kambo was used by the tribes of the Amazon Jungle to strengthen the physical body and reduce the human smell to aid in hunting. It was also used to purify the mind and spirit by removing “Panema” an aboriginal word for “negative energies.” It was believed that Panema caused one to be lazy, depressed, and unlucky. Kambo was their go-to tool that eliminated this influence and brought renewal to ones system.
 
Kambo is a potent anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiviral and antimicrobial substance due to its strong concentration of peptides that work synergistically to detoxify our systems. These peptides and neuropeptides offer the potential to treat a number of different health and emotional conditions. When we release the blockages and negative influences from past conditioning and experiences we naturally express a more authentic version of ourselves. Our true essence of love and peace is able to shine through in a more powerful way because we have done the deep work and let go of the false beliefs in our unworthiness, weakness, fear etc. 
 
Kambo helps to restore our system to its natural state. Even if
one is not suffering with a particular condition many report that
working with Kambo helps them to improve their overall
well-being. Some results may include:
 
 
  • Heightening of the 5 Senses
  • Improved Mood
  • Improved Immune System
  • Improved Mental Clarity
  • Reduced Stress and Anxiety
  • Improvement in Fitness Level
  • Increased Physical Strength
  • Improved Level of Mindfulness and Peace
  • Decreased Levels of Fear and Anger
  • Increased Spiritual Connection

Despite popular belief Kambo is NOT a poison, venom or toxin. It is a collection of peptides, many of which humans have receptors for. A peptide is a compound containing 2 or more amino acids bonded together. During the Kambo process these peptides stimulate different parts of our biological system in a synergistic way that allows for purging and detoxification. So far 16 peptides have been isolated from Kambo.


The main families of bioactive peptides identified in the Kambo secretion so far include:
 

Phyllomedusin: a tachykinin which affects the salivary glands, tear ducts, intestines, and bowels. It contracts the smooth muscles and increases sections of the entire gastrointestinal tract such as the pancreas and gallbladder, and contributes to violent purging.
 

Phyllocaerulein: stimulates the pituitary gland and adrenal cortex. Causes a contraction of the gall bladder which in turn secretes gastric and pancreatic juices. Both Phyllocaeurulein and Savaging (below) have great analgesic properties that contribute to an increase in physical strength, pain tolerance, disease, stress and diminish fatigue.

Sauvagine: has an effect of the cortico releasing hormone system and pituitary adrenal axis. This plays a role in balancing mood, stress, and impulsive behaviour. Sauvagine also works to improve the digestion and also has analgesic properties that help with pain in renal colic, pain due to peripheral vascular insufficiency and tumour pain. 

Deltorphin: an opioid - like peptide that is known to have quite strong analgesic properties that block pain without creating an abuse potential or dependance. 4000 times stronger than morphine and 30-40 times stronger than b-endorphins (the body's natural pain killer). 
 
Phyllokinin (and phyllomedusin): potent blood vessel dilators that also increase the permeability of the blood-brain barrier. Within this family are the medusins, which have antimcrobial and anti fungal properties.
 

Adenoregulin: stimulate the adenosine receptors which are fundamental component throughout all human cellular fuel. These receptors may offer a target for the treatment of depression, stroke and cognitive loss diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and also Parkinson’s.
 

Dermaseptin: a potent antimicrobial found to combat viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. Studies have shown Dermaseptin to be effective at killing and inhibiting cancer cells. It also kills pathogens such HIV, Candida, herpes, and E. coli.
