"Kambo" or "Sapo" is a glandular secretion from the frog known as Phyllomedusa bicolor, primarily found in the rainforests of South America. This secretion is used in traditional Amazonian tribal rituals as a therapeutic and ceremonial agent.
This secretion contains various substances, such as peptides, enzymes, and hormones. When administered to the body, it can induce various physiological and psychological reactions.
Kambo works on the physical body by inducing what is known as "purging," which means that after the secretion is administered to the body, some people may experience symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, increased blood pressure, severe abdominal and headache pains, and feelings of weakness. Kambo aids in detoxifying the body and improving overall health.
Energetically, Kambo is considered a powerful tool for cleansing and harmonizing. People who have undergone the Kambo ceremony claim that the secretion helps them in cleansing the mind, body, and soul, as well as achieving better emotional and spiritual balance.
However, it should be noted that Kambo is not safe for everyone and can be harmful to people with certain diseases or conditions, such as heart disease, gastrointestinal diseases, or mental illnesses. Pregnancy is also an absolute contraindication. Therefore, it is important to consult with a doctor or trusted practitioner.
