“Recent studies have shown that Kambo contains multiple antimicrobial peptides effective against drug resistant strains of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, parasites and virus, providing opportunities for the development of new and more efficient nanotechnological-based therapies for treating infectious diseases.

Several years of ongoing research by the University of Paris have shown Kambo to be super effective at killing cancer cells and Queens University in Belfast recently won a prestigious award for their ground breaking work with cancer and frog secretions. Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anaesthetic substances found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to strengthen the immune system.

It also detoxes the liver and the intestines so it’s a powerful cleanser. Immediate and short term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst. The mind becomes still, you feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage.


In the longer term, Kambo empowers the immune system, rousing the body’s defence systems to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur.”

Kambo is very safe, if received under the

supervision of a qualified practitioner. 

Please refer to FAQs for a a list of contraindications and

cautions, or visit the IAKP website:  



Please make sure that you bring 1 gallon of water.

No food is to be ingested within 8hrs of the treatment.

No medication to be taken on the day (Until after the treatment).

No more than a glass or two of water before you arrive.

The Days Before: Eat as mindfully as possible in the days leading up to your Kambo ceremony. Drink plenty of water so that your tissues are hydrated. Do not consume alcohol or recreational drugs for 24 hours prior to your session.

Please note: There is no need to fast in the days leading up to Kambo except for the 8 hours prior. No prolonged juice or water fasts.




Kambo is considered an ‘ordeal medicine'. as it has a cleansing and purgative effect which

includes nausea, vomiting, defecation and emotional releases such as crying/sounding as

your body and spirit are being cleansed.                    

Small superficial burns (more shallow than a blister) are applied to the skin and the very top layer

is gently and carefully wiped off. The secretion is applied directly onto this 'gate' and enters into

the lymphatic system. A feeling of warmth immediately follows. The face, skin and core of your

body will start to flush and the heart will beat slightly faster. Blood pressure will fall slightly.


It is helpful to work with the breath and surrender into the experience with love and trust. It is 

common to experience gentle swelling of the throat and face. This is normal. Simply relax into

the cleansing sensations and allow the Spirit of the Frog to purify and fortify you.

After a few minutes you may feel  your stomach contract and have a powerful urge to purge.

Again this is normal. 


In the West we are used to calling purging 'Being sick'. In other areas of the world, purging is

what our bodies do intuitively when we are sick, to remove the toxins and the 'sickness' from

our bodies.


You will have a bucket in front of you, and you will purge into the bucket. You may also need to go to the bathroom. You will be assisted to do so. After your purge, the Kambo dots will be removed from your body and the major part of your cleanse is over. You will have time to rest, before sipping some herbal tea with honey/Coconut water and eating a light snack of soup or fruit.


Many people report feeling very peaceful immediately after the treatment and often enjoy these effects for the next 2-6 weeks.


A typical Kambo ceremony lasts about 3 hours. The time spent in the peak of the cleansing and purgative process can be as short as 10 minutes and as long as a couple of hours.


After the dots of Kambo are removed, the points are dressed with a Peruvian tree sap

solution ‘Sangre de Grado’ (Dragon’s Blood). This helps them to heal faster and ensures

they stay free from infection until they scab naturally within a day or so.

The burn marks will heal and fade with time, but depending on your skin color and type

you may always have small visible scars. Most people see their Kambo marks as a badge

of honor to be worn proudly and many ask to have the dots arranged on the skin in a

pleasing artistic pattern. The same burn points can be reused after 2-3 months.
