Kambo is a Giant Monkey Tree Frog native to South America. When applied to your skin, Kambo’s waxy secretion can have phenomenal healing potential.
This Amazonian amphibian’s venom has been used for many years to cleanse, detox and strengthen the body, mind and spirit. Kambo removes deeply rooted toxins to allow the body to heal itself.
Kambo — “Vaccine of the Jungle”
Research shows Kambo contains at least nine powerful peptides beneficial for improving a variety of conditions including: infections, pathogens (viral, bacterial and fungal, such as Lyme, Candida, Malaria, HIV, Hepatitis), Cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, migraines, Diabetes, Rheumatism, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, inflammation, heart health, fertility, depression, addictions, skin/eye/ear issues, and more.
Kambo is excellent for the immune, endocrine and nervous system. It’s also helpful for increasing energy, circulation and stamina.
9 Powerful Peptides
Kambo contains at least nine peptides that positively affect the human body. These peptides make Kambo one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics in the world and, consequently, a superior immune booster.
Kambo — What to Expect
The effects of Kambo are intense but fast, usually 20-40 minutes. Kambo is legal in the U.S. and not psychoactive. For best results, find a qualified Kambo practitioner that provides detailed info and instructions.
Pre-session you’ll fast for 10 hours and avoid water 2 hours before. Once you arrive at the ceremony space, you’ll get comfortable, ask questions and drink 2 liters of water. The practitioner will create small points or “gates” on the outer surface of the skin for the Kambo to be applied. If it’s your first time, a test point is created to determine the appropriate number of gates. Gates can be placed on different parts of the body, including chakras and meridians for targeted treatment. Once the gates are open, the frog secretion is applied.
Kambo quickly enters the lymphatic system, scans your energy field and gets to work where it’s needed. It deeply cleanses the liver and organs, while waking up the body’s defense system to activate powerful healing potential.
The body can react in a variety of ways including: increased heart rate, swelling in the face, hands, and throat, temperature fluctuations, flushing, headache, cramping, and nausea. Kambo releases toxins on all levels through vomiting, bowel movements, sweating, crying, and/or shaking. Purging mostly takes place during the session but can continue post session. It’s quite fun to see what you purge including the rainbow of colors that come out of you!
After about 20-40 minutes the Kambo is removed from the gates. The symptoms quickly disappear. Post Kambo, you’ll rest, relax, eat some light food, and connect with the group. Many people report feeling a deep calmness, heightened senses, a feeling of well-being and positivity, increased energy, quick reflexes, mental and emotional clarity, and high levels of motivation.

The benefits of Kambo are felt short and long term and can be nothing short of miraculous.
Schedule a Cate Ritter Wellness coaching session pre or post Kambo to maximize the benefits. Nutrition, lifestyle, PSYCH-K® and heart coherence techniques can provide the wellness boost needed to take your life to the next level.
