Kambo derives from the secretion of the Amazonian giant waxy tree frog Phyllomedusa Bicolor. The secretion is comprised of a unique complex cocktail of bioactive peptides that produce amazing benefits for body and mind. Italian pharmacologist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome was nominated twice for the Nobel Prize and is considered to be the first scientist to analyze Kambo in the laboratory concluding that Kambo contains a “fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications unmatched by any other amphibian.”
The benefits of Kambo stem from the bioactive peptides and neuropeptides found in the Kambo secretion. The bioactive peptides found in Kambo exert a positive effect in humans due to their health-promoting properties. They can exert several beneficial effects like preventing diseases or modulating the physiological systems once they are absorbed in the human body. These peptides perform a broad range of functions that can be involved in the gastrointestinal system such as the anti-obesity and satiety peptides, the cardiovascular system such as antihypertensive, antithrombotic, and hypocholesterolemic peptides, the immune system such as antimicrobial, and immune-modulatory peptides, and the nervous system such as opioid peptides.
Tribes of the Amazon often refer to Kambo as "Hunting Magic" as it strengthens the physical body as well as the mind. Kambo brings energy and stamina into the body and sharpens the senses. It makes the mind still and allows one to think clearly. The small things that bother us in our day to day life does not seem to be as significant following a Kambo session, allowing one to focus on the things that truly matter in life.
USES OF KAMBO
People turn to Kambo for a myriad of different uses from physical to psychological. Although Kambo is not considered a medicine in the western sense of the word many people have found relief from physical ailments. Kambo has analgesic properties that has the potential to provide pain relief up to 40 times stronger than morphine without the addictive high that comes from opiates. Many people that suffer from autoimmune diseases such as Lyme have found incredible benefits from Kambo aiding in relief of their symptoms and putting life back into their bodies. On a psychological level, Kambo has shown incredible attributes in aiding people with depression, anxiety and PTSD. The chemical makeup of Kambo appears to specifically be designed to strengthen the mind and bodies of the human species.
WHERE DOES OUR KAMBO COME FROM?
Because Kambo demonstrates such a therapeutic benefit, its rise to popularity in the market makes it difficult for practitioners to find ethical and sustainable sources. Through Tribal Detox, we have a direct connection to where our Kambo comes from. Raul (pictured above) with Tribal Detox has a close relationship with the Cocama and Cocamilla tribes that are located a few hours up the river from Iquitos. Raul, on behalf of Tribal Detox, is allowed permission to personally harvest the Kambo secretion and ship back to the US. You can take pride in knowing your Kambo session positively affects people in the Jungles of the Amazon that have been so gracious to share their culture with us so that we may benefit. If you would like to donate to help Raul and his family as well as help the Cocama and Cocamilla tribes you may do so at the following link. You're generosity goes further than you can imagine. https://gofund.me/2a2acf9c
