HOW IT WORKS

'Kambo' is a secretion produced by the skin glands of the Phyllomedusa bicolor, a bright green tree frog. The secretion is highly concentrated and contains a large number of bioactive peptides. The collected Kambo is then applied to the skin by introducing it into the body through very small superficial burns that are made with a small vine. This immediately triggers a variety of chemical reactions within the body, and flows through the lymphatic system. The body recognizes this medicine as natural and familiar, unlocking to Kambo at a cellular level. Deep cleansing and detoxifying occur in both the Liver and Intestines, which supports the process of cleaning out deposits left in our cells by foreign substances.

Kambo has the ability, unlike many other natural and pharmaceutical substances, to cross the blood-brain barrier and produce its effects at the level of the brain. It directly influences the endocrine glands, the lymph system, and stimulates the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland. Kambo also has the ability to influence the body’s natural defence system. Kambo is one of the world’s most effective and natural antibiotic and immune system booster. People that take this medicine regularly rarely get sick and experience increased energy levels. Short term effects include enhanced resistance to fatigue, hunger and thirst, as well as more mental clarity and alertness. These effects can last for days or weeks providing one is able to keep their body clean with a healthy diet. 

Kambo assists with our body’s innate ability to cleanse and purify itself, bringing the body back into a state of well being and balance. This deep healing occurs on three levels - the body, mind and spirit.  Kambo helps reset our cellular memory and has the potential to dissolve emotional blocks. Physically it is known to heal eye sight, relieve pain, and inhibit the growth of tumor cells. Kambo acts as an anti-inflammatory, and it is antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral.

TESTIMONIALS

I had the undeniable pleasure of experiencing Kambo with Chris. Going in I had an idea of what to expect, and it turned out to be much, much more. The entire ceremony from start to finish was extremely powerful. Chris made this experience amazing. With his knowledge, and his desire to help people see past anything that has been holding them back in their life. I felt extremely comfortable in the space that was provided for this journey. Afterward I felt so light, happy, and clear. The medicine sure knows where to go in your body, to heal what it knows it needs to!. I would definitely recommend Chris's Kambo ceremonies to anyone everyone. I will definitely be back!!

While on my Healing Journey, I had the privilege of participating in my first 3 Day Kambo Ceremony with Chris.  I was involved in a severe accident that had multiple long lasting injuries.  I was left with not only physical scars, but emotional ones as well.  Combine that with traumatic life experiences that most of us all have, and I was an individual searching for healing on all aspects… Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual.  Kambo ticks all the boxes.  Chris was very knowledgeable with the process as well as discussing expectations. His ceremonies are performed in a small intimate setting, which fosters open and honest dialogue regarding your struggles and the personal relationship you will develop with Kambo.

As this is a ceremony that brings forth a lot of personal emotions and purging, I wanted to ensure I felt comfortable with Chris and safe enough to open up to release my thoughts and feelings.  Chris does just that.  I felt extremely comfortable speaking with Chris.  His ability to calmly listen, while drawing out your true self, puts you at ease.  His experiences are true and very much relatable.  There is an air of acceptance.  The ceremonies become a circle of trust.  After experiencing this wonderful gift, Chris draws you back to your intentions and has you reflect on your goals.  This is now the time for your personal work to begin! 

Thanks to the wonderful frog and Chris, These are the immediate benefits I felt:

I am off all of my pain medication and have had no need to continue using.  That is not to say that I am “pain free”, but I am able to manage my pain better and definitely have far less pain than previous.  I have suffered from extremely severe allergies.  I was on daily prescriptions but have been off of them since Kambo.  My chest is clear and I do not have any of the congestion I suffered with for decades.  Yes..decades!  The most wonderful gift though, has been the release of anxiety.  Trauma left me riddled with anxiety.  That heaviness in the chest, the racing heart that comes with PTSD… how wonderful it is to have that lifted.  To think with clarity and to reason with absolute transparency with yourself instead of hiding and covering up the issues…what a blessing! 

The true work of healing has the ability to take place with this fascinating frog.  Chris has a unique gift to share, and I highly encourage you to accept.  Now is the time for you to become the person you’ve been waiting for.  Trust the Process!

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting in 2 Kambo medicine ceremonies facilitated by Chris.  It was my first time receiving Kambo so I was very nervous, Chris has a very calm energy and held space wonderfully from the second I walked in the door which was helpful in easing my nerves.  He started out by explaining the entire process step by step, then we spent a lot of time on intentions, which I originally had the intention of quitting cannabis which I’ve been overusing for the last 10 years, he was able to guide me to a different intention to focus on why I actually smoked it, which was a coping mechanism due to a relationship trauma I carried internally for many years. I used this intention as the center piece of my ceremony, focusing on it as I connected with the medicine. The Kambo rushed through my body within a minute of it being applied, it was intense, very challenging but didn’t last long, Chris was right in front of me coaching and encouraging me which was very helpful. After the purging was finished I had a brief rest, ate the food he prepared for me and I must say the feeling I felt following the ceremonies was like nothing I’ve never felt before, it was like a feeling of rebirth, I had body, mind and spirit alignment. I’m happy to report that my relationship with cannabis is entirely different than it was prior to receiving Kambo and I’ve created different daily habits thanks to some coaching Chris provided me. I’ll be booking more Kambo ceremonies with Healing Hearts Kambo in the near future to go deeper into my healing journey.

THE LEGEND BEHIND KAMBO  
a deeper look into the MATSES TRIBE

The Matsés

Kambo is recorded to have been used by up to 53 tribes including the Matsés, Yawanawá, Katukina and Apurina. The Matsés, (or Jaguar People), also known as Mayoruna in Brazil inhabit the frontier region between Brazil and Peru. They are brave warriors with a strong work ethic and a deep reverence for the earth. When they are hunting and gathering they move around a lot to ensure they are not exhausting the soil or animal populations in one particular area. They know their land well in order to manage their resources, and protect their territory. These skills allow them to be independent of mainstream society.

The Matsés believe there is no difference between the spiritual and physical worlds. They also believe that all plants have an association with specific animal spirits which they will bring into healing ceremonies. Before offering healing, they first seek permission from the spirit of the animal. This may include requesting a cure, or asking for protection. Kambo is used by the tribes in hunting rituals, to ward off the enemy, and to bring in physical and emotional healing. Common symptoms that they treat include laziness, fertility, abortion, behavioural correction, lack of desire, sexual attraction, sadness, mental, spiritual and physical weakness, low self-esteem, and disharmony with nature. In the Amazon Rainforest, this medicine is known to bring happiness to those who take it, to bring luck, and to unblock and circulate the heart chakra among many other benefits.

 

The Legend

Over three thousand years ago, many Matsés tribe members suddenly became sick. This mysterious illness began to spread through the tribe with a vengeance, to the point that extinction became a possibility. The elders tried everything to cure this mysterious disease with no avail. One night they gathered around a fire, surrounded by their fellow tribe members groaning and grieving, to find a solution. One elder suggested it may be a curse that was placed upon them from a rival tribe. Another suggested it may be something the Spaniards had brought into the forest. This resonated with one of the tribe’s older shamans, Shaman Kampú. He decided to venture into the forest on a vision quest to seek the cure. 


Deep in the forest, away from everyone, he began to cook up a potent brew of Ayahuasca and drank it as the sun was setting. That night the great spirit of the forest answered his prayers and appeared in his vision. The spirit beckoned him to sit on the trunk of an enormous tree. Old shaman Kampú did what was asked of him and sat there for sometime until he began to sense movement. Amongst the leaves he could hear something. Suddenly a bright green frog appeared and hopped onto his shoulder.

The Shaman was both relieved and surprised bu this forest visitor. With no claws or teeth, Kampú wondered how this harmless creature could help him. 'Don't be deceived,' said the Spirit, reading his thoughts. 'This amiable little fellow is a prince of the forest. No one ever bothers him–not even the great anaconda Sachamama! 'Is he poisonous?' said Kampú. Yes, but as you know, the poisons of the forest are medicines, if you know how to use them.' And without further ado, the Spirit showed Kampú how to work with the frog.

Kampú returned to the tribe with this medicine from the green frog, and began to treat his fellow tribe member. They began to discover the power of this medicine worked beyond curing this mysterious disease. It also cured snakebites, malaria, and curses.  And this is the legend of the powerful healing properties of the green frog, the prince of the forest. Nobody would have guessed the power held within such a tiny green body.
