For years I’d been following a method that was taught to me, used when Kambo was applied to me by other practitioners and spoken about by everyone I knew in the Kambo space. It was never questioned, I just assumed this was the way it had to be. In November 2019 I was hosting a Planet Kambo retreat and it was time on the first day for me and my team itsto do our own Kambo treatments. With my entire trusty Frog Squad in one place it seemed the perfect time for an experiment, “let’s try the Sapo method”, I announced. Now fast-forward to 2019 and my first introduction to ‘Sapo’, translated meaning “frog” or “toad” in Spanish. After a ceremony, one afternoon, a member of the Planet Kambo team told me she had heard of a different way to use Kambo.
All of the intricacies, subtleties and nuances are amplified and felt in full. This can only be experienced first-hand to truly understand what I’m talking about.
POST TREATMENT CARE + INTEGRATION
Many people have received profound physical, spiritual and emotional healing from kambo. Many people who were failed by conventional medicine found relief from this medicine. I’ve worked with many chronically ill people, and I’ve never seen a modality work as effectively as kambo. “Despite the handful of unfortunate and preventable incidents, kambo is an incredibly safe substance with a tremendous track record. Thousands and thousands of people have received kambo around the world, many by reckless and naive “practitioners” and yet they still come out of it unharmed.
You May Not Be a Candidate for Kambo
Ask your prospective facilitator how they would handle an emergency, and how they screen out unsuitable participants. A facilitator without a screening process or an emergency procedure may not be trustworthy. There is a slight risk of allergic reaction, so facilitators should apply a test dot first, and have an epipen ready. Other risk factors are Addison’s disease, epilepsy, or a weak immune system. People on immuno-suppressants, or any medications that heavily strain the liver, should avoid kambo.
DAY OF CEREMONY:
Part of the effects you feel are the Kambo and the other half are from the toxins your body is getting rid of. Kambo gives us the gift of opening the body, cleansing desensitization. About 15 minutes before the medicine is applied, you will drink about 1-1.5 liters of water. Kambo is applied to the skin generally on the shoulders, however, working with the energy lines in the body, such as Chinese medicine, it can open up other energetic blockages.
