Kambo is a strong purgative that detoxifies the body by prompting an intense biological response to the medicine.
Kambo is administered by applying the wax over small, superficial burns made on the skin. Only the topmost layer of skin is seared, to allow the medicine to be absorbed into the body through the lymphatic system, immediately triggering a variety of beneficial chemical reactions in the body as it travels to the heart AND crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Each individual experience is highly personal and entirely unique. Your experience with the medicine will be yours and yours alone. However, common reports include: increased heart rate, warmth or intense heat, sweating, mild swelling, cramps or pain in the body, and nausea that slowly build until ultimately triggering an intense purge. With the purge comes relief, and the completion of the ceremony.
The medicine continues to work well after the ceremony, however, with short-term effects including, heightened awareness, general well-being, feelings of grounded presence, and a deeper connection with ourselves. In the long run, we get rid of stuck emotion, negative energy, and bad luck, reboot the body's immune system and open the floodgates for overall wellness to continue increasing over time.
