What is Kambo?

Kambo is a secretion from one of the largest Hylid frogs known as the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog. Its scientific name is Phyllomedusa Bicolor. The frog is nocturnal and arboreal and due to the fact that it has no natural predators is found in abundance across the Upper Amazon rainforest areas of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela. 

The only known threats to this species of frog at the moment are spawn predation and the potential destruction of their habitat.

Scientist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome who was nominated for the Nobel prize wrote that the Kambo secretion contains a “fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian”. Erspamer went on to say that ‘Among the several dozen peptides found in kambô, up to 7% are bio-active.’ They bind with receptor sites situated in the brain, triggering chemical reactions in the human body. So far, researchers have found nine bio- active peptides that have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland. The Kambo peptides discovered by Erspamer trigger a variety of beneficial chemical reactions in the human body. Kambo has the ability, unlike many other natural and pharmaceutical substances, to cross the blood-brain barrier, enabling it to reach deep into the body and bring support to otherwise difficult to treat areas. Human cells open up to the beneficial properties of Kambo unlike many substances that are filtered and eliminated by the body’s highly intelligent defense system. Thus far, researchers have discovered nine peptides, some of which are bio-active – meaning that they perform specific functions in the body. These peptides perform hormone-like tasks while others provide support to vital cellular processes. Some of these peptides have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland. Many peptides have since been isolated from the Kambo secretion and have been synthesized. As a testament to their medicinal properties, there are over now over 70 Kambo related patents lodged.

Kambo is said to be the great revealer. Many have described their Kambo experiences as a genuine rebirth. Kambo helped them to reignite their courage and to acknowledge themselves on a deeper level, letting go of that which was holding them back and allowing them to embrace their highest happiness. It will change you. Kambo brings clarity, strength, insights and can deliver a deeply transformative experience.

The frog is a Universal symbol of the embracing of personal power. It reminds us not to become bogged down with day-to-day living. Give the frog and Kambo the support and energy needed to reclaim your true nature and allow yourselves to simply shine. Kambo has never failed to bring change.

Whether Kambo has you purging, sweating, shaking, crying or in a state of bliss, you can be sure that change is in progress.

Kambo Contradictions -

Kambo is very safe when given by a properly trained practitioner. However there are some conditions for which Kambo is contraindicated. This is not an exhaustive list. It is important to consult a properly trained and skilled practitioner if you have any concerns. Suitability for Kambo may occasionally depend the constitution of the person receiving Kambo. Those who we contraindicate include  people who:

  • Have serious heart problems or have had heart surgery (Stents are fine)
  • Are on medication for low blood pressure
  • Have had a stroke or a brain haemorrhage
  • Have an aneurism or blood clot(s)
  • Lack the mental capacity to make the decision to take Kambo
  • Have serious mental health problems, excluding depression, PTSD and anxiety
  • Are undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or who had undergone it within the last 4 weeks
  • Take immune-suppressants for organ transplant
  • Have Addison’s Disease
  • Have current and severe epilepsy
  • Are recovering from a major surgical procedure
  • Are under 18 years old
  • Are pregnant or maybe so or are breast-feeding a child under 6 months old.

Research conducted since 1980 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 definitely back up kambo's efficacy, the properties of kambo peptides made it a promising treatment for the following conditions -

Depression

Migraines

Blood circulation problems

Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease

Vascular insufficiency

Organ diseases

Cancer

Fertility problems

Deeply rooted toxins

Chronic pain

Addition to opiate or prescription pain killers. Kambo reduces physical pain, thus helping people kick their addictions to other pain killers.

Fever and infections

Negative energies. Traditionally known as "panema."

The sound and vibration of Crystal singing bowls nearly instantly reduces stress and tension and, creates a relaxed and meditative state. It is from that point where healing the mind and body can begin. Vibrational sound healing can be traced back from present day trends to many ancient civilizations including India, Africa, Europe, and the Orient. Crystal bowl therapy helps to balance the chakra system and re-energize the auric field. Healing is thus made possible on all levels. 

What is sound healing?

When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease. With dis-ease, a different sound pattern is established in the affected part of the body. When sound is projected into the dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns are restored.

The Crystal Bowls work directly with  universal energy and channel it into the body to enliven our entire being! Through this super-flow of life-force energy, they can help us remember our connection with the Great Source and allow us access to the unlimited healing energy from within.

The notes of the crystal bowls are tuned to specific vibrational frequencies (notes) found within the human body. Thus when the sound moves through the atmosphere and touches us, it causes our cells to move in different directions at a different speed, in rhythm with the sound wave. This puts us in harmony with the sound wave. The sound penetrates into our very cells and rebalances them through oscillation and resonance. Hearing is not a prerequisite for benefiting from these healing properties. Studies have shown that sound has a direct impact on the mental processes, muscles, nervous system, (heartbeat, pulse) digestive system and circulatory system. Alignment with the tones of the Singing Crystal Bowls is one of the most dynamic forms of sound healing found today.

 

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in NY has been using sound, including Tibetan Bowls, Crystal bowls and chanting in work with cancer patients for many years. “If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”

The pure sonic waves that ring from the singing quartz crystal bowls wake up our ability to listen and hear. Hearing occurs with more than our ears. Sound is vibration, and that vibration moves throughout our body. With the singing quartz crystal we FEEL the sound as much as we take it in with our ears. The singing bowls create a totally relaxed and meditative feeling – the ultimate in meditation music!
