This venom extracted from the skin of a jungle frog comes to us as a magical solution to countless health problems. With Kambó, we have the chance to awaken the body to its full natural potential of protection, strengthening and healing.

‘Kambo’, ‘campu’, ‘sapo’, ‘vacino da floresta.’ All these are names given to the secretion of a frog that lives in the northwest of the Amazon jungle (Peru, Colombia and Brazil). The scientific name of this frog is “Phyllomedusa bicolor” or “giant monkey frog”.

Originally, 53 tribes used this secretion but now it is known that only 13 small tribes still use it. It is used to become free from Panema (name given to negative things) and as a powerful medicine against malaria, snake bites, yellow fever, and other epidemic diseases.

The scientific research on this frog’s secretion started in the 1980’s. Nominated for the Nobel Prize, the Italian scientist Vittorio Erspamer from the University of Rome wrote that this secretion contains a “fantastic chemical cocktail, with possible medical applications, superior to every other amphibian.” To this day, researchers have found nine bio-active peptides that have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation,  and stimulation of the adrenal cortex and the pituitary gland.

The chemical reactions produced in the human body:

  • Strongly impacts the intestines, causing a profound purge
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Increases sensory perception
  • Produces a strong analgesic effect, improves resistance, increases physical strength
  • Improves the ability to withstand pain and stressful situations
  • Helps digestion, and analgesic effects have been proven on those who have renal colic, pains caused by peripheral vascular insufficiency and cancer pains
  • Other interesting medical characteristics of this secretion are its anti-inflammatory effects, the ability to destroy microbes and virus and to heal infections
  • Result can occur quickly for people with addictions, although complicated cases may take more time.

Kambó is one the strongest natural ways to potentiate our immune system. It is 4,000 times stronger than morphine and 40 times stronger than type B endogen endorphins. Kambó treatments have short and long term effects.

Short term effects are a state of alert, improved humour, more resistance to tiredness, the ability to focus and concentrate with more ease, and a mental calm that can last for several days or weeks. Long term, it empowers the immune system, overcomes fatigue and improves health.

With Kambó, we have the chance to awaken the body to its full natural potential of protection, strengthening and healing.

People who receive this “vaccine” frequently do not get sick and have plenty of energy. Re-establishing the natural balance, the emergence of ailments induced by viruses is avoided.

In the cases of severe diseases, addictions, or toxins accumulated by pharmaceutical medicine, it can be useful to receive twice the treatment for a time. In this way, the effects of cleansing with Kambó will increase one after the other and last longer.

What Kambó cannot do is eliminate the root of our emotional blockages that come from traumatic experiences. One can feel relief when vomiting yellow bile, but the root of the problem remains. To eliminate the root of rage and fear, other entheogen medicines are used.



It is applied in a few minutes over small dots where small burns where made previously; in this way it enters the lymphatic system and the effect can last one to three hours.

For those who take Ayahuasca, it is ideal to do Kambó 2 hours before, because it prepares the body for the Ayahuasca experience, allowing it to enter clean and open to the encounter with Ayahuasca.

It can also be applied without the need of taking Ayahuasca later.

For those interested in receiving treatment or Kambó vaccination, we recommend doing 3 sessions in 3 days. Every session is stronger than the previous one. These three sessions are ideally made in three different days, with best results if it is in three consecutive days; otherwise it is not recommended to wait more than 7 days between sessions.

We will keep posting articles on Kambó, testimonials of people who are trying it. It is a treatment we recommend 100% to the participants of our Ayahuasca and/or Bufo Alvarius retreats.
