Kambo medicine for the immune system

Kambó is a natural and highly effective therapy, which has been used for thousands of years by the tribe of the rain forest of the northern western Amazon, including Peru, Brazil and Colombia. The natives rubbed the frog's back over their bodies to strengthen themselves and thus be able to go hunting while avoiding being affected by bugs and snakes. Furthermore, they used it to promote health, strength, well-being and also to eliminate 'panema' or bad luck.

According to what is known, the Kambó has been used in up to 53 Amazon tribes, but today only a few remain who use it, such as: the Matsés, Yawanawá, Katukina and Apurina. The Kambó is also called Kampu, Campu, Chambó, Sapo Vacino da Floresta or "Giant Monkey Frog".

The remedy is the secretion (in the form of a cream) that this tree frog scientifically known as: Phyllomedusa Bicolor produces as a defense system. This secretion is extracted from its back, without causing any damage to this beautiful frog. This amphibian has no natural predators, so the idea that applying kambó would energetically absorb the fear and stress of the frog would be meaningless. The frog, after sharing this secretion with the healers, is returned to its daily life in the natural environment (among branches and lianas of ayahuasca).

The collected Kambó is applied under the first layer of the skin, after making small superficial burns, which are made with a very thin stick, to quickly act and circulate throughout the body. The kambó immediately flows through the lymphatic system generating the activation of all the body's systems, and at the same time, a strong purge and total cleaning that lasts approximately 15 minutes.

Scientifically it is known that Kambó has at least 9 powerful bioactive peptides:

Scientific research into the secretion of this frog was started in the 1980s by the Italian scientist Vittorio Erspamer from the University of Rome, who was twice a candidate for the Nobel Prize. This research reported that the secretion contains a "fantastic chemical cocktail, with possible medical applications, unmatched by any other animal, in nature" (1), "among these peptides found in the Kambó, around 7% are bio -assets "(1). These bind to receptors located in the brain, causing chemical reactions in the human body. So far, researchers have found nine bioactive peptides, which have a powerful effect on gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, stimulation of the adrenal cortex and various glands. It strongly affects the intestines which contributes to the deep purge.

Phylokinin and philomedusine are powerful spleen dilators, which increases the permeability of the blood barrier of the brain, this facilitates the access of these two peptides to the brain as well as the active peptides. Cerulein causes a drop in blood pressure accompanied by tachycardia, which also stimulates the adrenal cortex and the pituitary gland, increasing sensory perception and physical resistance. These peptides have a strong analgesic power, increase physical strength and generally improve the ability to withstand pain and stressful situations. They have medicinal potential that facilitates digestion and analgesic effects have been demonstrated for those who suffer from renal colic, pain caused by peripheral vascular insufficiency and carcinogenic pain. On the other hand, dermorphin and deltorphin are powerful opioid peptides, 4,000 times more potent than morphine itself and 40 times stronger than endogenous type B endorphins.

1). In the 1990s a new peptide, Adenoregulin, was discovered by John Daly's team at the National Institute of Health in the US Adenoregulin works in the human body through adenosine receptors, a key component in all energizing human cells. These receptors may offer an option for the treatment of depression, stroke, and cognitively impaired diseases, such as Alzheimer's. Scientific research is opening new perspectives on how the human brain works.


The properties of Kambó peptides cover a wide range of possible medical uses in the treatment of brain diseases such as the aforementioned Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, paralysis, depression, migraines, blood circulation problems, vascular insufficiency, organ diseases, problems of skin and eyes, fertility problems in women and men, AIDS, hepatitis and cancer.

Other interesting medical features of this secretion are its anti-inflammatory effects, its ability to destroy microbes and viruses, and to heal infections. Due to the presence of these peptides, Kambo is one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found in the world and one of the strongest natural media, in addition to strongly awakening and boosting our immune system.

In summary, Kambó is beneficial for various ailments: People with low immune systems, pain and inflammation in general, tendinitis, headache, asthma, bronchitis, rhinitis, influenza, allergies, gastritis, ulcers, diabetes, disorders of the digestive system , blood pressure problems, circulatory problems, fluid retention, cholesterol, heart disease, hepatitis, cirrhosis, malaria (acute and post malaria), epilepsy, infertility, impotence, reduced libido, depression and its consequences, anxiety, insomnia, irritation, insecurity, nervousness, fears, imbalances caused by stress, fatigue, physical and mental exhaustion, chemical dependencies (drugs and medicines), smoking, among other ailments.

Kambó treatments have short and long-term effects. In the short term, the effects are alertness, good mood, increased physical endurance, serenity, lucidity, lightness, intuition, the ability to focus and focus more easily, and a calm mind that can last for several days or weeks. In the long term, Kambó boosts the immune system, overcomes fatigue and visibly improves the state of physical, psychoemotional and energetic / spiritual health.


Caution should be exercised, in the application of Kambó, in transplanted people, pregnant women, with heart problems and people in postoperative cases.

It must be applied by a specialist, a qualified person with empirical learning, verifiable training and initiation and a minimum experience of 10 years in ancestral Amazonian therapies.
