frog medicine

Kambo, Sapo or Acate are just a few of the names used to describe this ancient healing treatment utilized by various indigenous tribes of the Amazon, including the Matzés in Perú.


The local tribesmen and women traditionally use it for:

  • Building immunity + physical strength

  • Deep cleansing + healing of the body 

  • Increasing motivation + stamina

  • Spiritual + mental clarity

  • Luck + zest of life


As more and more people are choosing to engage with the healing benefits of Kambo, knowledge about this powerful personal transformation is growing. Kambo is utilized in the western world to assist a person's natural healing capabilities from common ailments such as:

  • PTSD + trauma

  • depression + anxiety

  • viruses

  • parasites

  • infections

  • chronic illness

  • high inflammation 

  • bacterial overgrowth

  • hormonal imbalance

  • common mood "disorders"

  • substance dependency

  • adrenal fatigue + burnout

  • overstimulated nervous system

  • auto immune disease

The benefits of Kambo for advancement of healing in the body, mind, spirit, energy, and history are truly limitless.

Kambo contributes to the long lasting and permanent healing of chronic physical and mental "illnesses" that Western Medicine claims have "no cure"

benefits Of Kambo


Kambo detoxes the body, strengthens the immune system and activates self-healing within the body. It is a natural antiviral and antifungal. Not only does it support the healing of viruses within the body it also acts as a natural vaccine to prevent viruses.

Studies show that some peptides in the Kambo can be very effective in dealing with Alzheimer, Parkinsons Disease, infertility, hepatitis, cancer, AIDS and other serious conditions. Although there is no doubt of the wide range of uses of Kambo, it is necessary to find the right complimentary treatments.  food medicines, and personal lifestyle shifts which are specific and individual to each person and condition. 

We have seen Kambo help many people with a variety of conditions including allergies, skin diseases, asthma, rheumatism and joint disorders, chronic pain and infections, malaria, diabetes, hepatitis, epilepsy, depression, post chemotherapy fatigue, disease prevention and many more. 



The tribesmen of the Amazon use this medicine to clear themselves from "paneme“ (bad luck or dense energy). Kambo is a cleansing agent for it and after the treatment most people feel a strong optimism and clearness of the mind. They may feel recharged in strength and stamina and capable to achieve their goals. It is said that everything flows a bit better in the life after taking Kambo, because externally we always attract the thing that is going on internally.  

The Matses-tribesmen use Kambo for more luck when hunting in order to catch a big animal. In the Western culture we can use kambo to improve our everyday lives such as finding a job and being more successful in it, which could correspond to archaic desires of being the best hunter.  


If the impression has arisen by now that Kambo can cure anything, one still has to consider that every human being is unique. The outcome of the treatments can vary in their effects as well as in the amount of time it may take to feel those effects. Everybody is different and so every session can be a bit different because Kambo works on many levels and is unique in its translation. 

It is very important to not compare Kambo with conventional medicines. In our opinion to gain true long term benefits of healing, one often has to make healthy lifestyle changes in addition to the treatment. It is not truly  beneficial to take Kambo and continue an unhealthy lifestyle because the problem that has been treated would most likely present itself again.

The effects will be noticeable shortly after the secretion is applied onto the burned area (usually after 1- 2 min). Rarely it might take a longer time, or the dose might have to be adjusted. The Kambo medicine goes straight into the lymphatic system and from there into the bloodstream.  

In most cases, the first effect is that the blood flushes up into the head. This will be perceived as heat in the facial area and the rest of the body. Sometimes this can be accompanied by a fastening of the heart beat, very often followed by nausea and vomiting. Usually the water you drank before comes first, followed by a variety of slimy, milky, yellow, orange, green, dark green, brown or sometimes even black liquids and bile. There is also a need to defecate quite often. There will be often a swelling in the facial area and the neck region. The intensity of these swellings can vary, but in most cases it will subside relatively fast. 

Eye discharge, chills, cramps, dizziness, numbness in the hands and physical weakness can occur symptomatically. In some cases someone might feel a need to scream or cry in order to release emotional and energetic blockages. The symptoms might vary in quality and quantity depending on the individual, the area the medicine will work on and the dose.  

Usually the most intense part of the treatment will only take between 10 - 30 minutes and in very few cases it might take a bit longer or a bit shorter.  


The effects of Kambo always differs depending on the person and intervals of treatment.  Even though the effects of Kambo could sound unpredictable, it is best to keep in mind that Kambo is a very intelligent medicine and will always do what  is necessary for the recipient.  


side Effects


When taken with a trained and trustworthy practitioner, Kambo is very safe. Positive effects usually set in after a great session, lots of hydration, and an early night's sleep. That next morning after Kambo most people immediately feel the benefits of increased energy flow and cognitive clarity. These energetic sensory enhancements can grow with you for as long as two weeks after the session or more if you eat a plant based diet and stay well hydrated.

In some cases the immune system may first drop down temporarily and the cleansing process may continue for a couple of days before one would experience the beneficial feelings of the medicine. This may happen after a very intense cleanse or when there is a more serious illness to heal.   

In very rare cases, especially when one tries to move quickly or stand up fast, the person may faint during the experience and this is why it is necessary to work with an experienced, trained practitioner. A responsible practitioner will provide a safe space for the treatment to facilitate the greatest possible healing for the recipient.


Is Kambo suitable for everyone? 

No, Kambo is not suitable for everyone and that is why we may not suggest to take Kambo if one of the following conditions applies to you as there could be possibly some contraindications:

  • COVID vaccine complications (discuss with your practitioner)

  • Heart disease medications

  • Parkinsons medications

  • Epilepsy medications

  • Lyme's Disease (in some cases) medications (discuss with your practitioner)

  • Blood pressure medications

  • Steroids (Arthritis + Rheumatism) medications

  • Corticosteroids medications

  • Infection (Diclofenac) medications

  • Sleeping pills and medications

  • Varicose Vein medications

  • NSAID medications

  • Certain antidepressants


If one or more of these applies to you please consult your practitioner to discuss if Kambo is a healthy option for you. There could be a couple of other cases where it is not recommended to take Kambo, and it is therefore always good to talk beforehand with your practitioner and disclose your medical history, current symptoms, and current medications.


Is Kambo psychoactive? 

Some people are under the false impression that Kambo is a psychoactive substance because there is some wrong information in the internet about this. Sometimes the Kambo frog is confused with "bufo alvarius“ toad also called sapito. 

Kambo contains no psychoactive components that could trigger visions whatsoever. Instead it is a very physical experience. Interestingly enough, sometimes the person receiving the treatment feels connected to the frog mentally. Through this connection, you get insights about things you should do differently or let go of all together in order to have a better life. Sometimes even memories from childhood that have been buried deep inside may emerge. 

Is Kambo addictive? 

Everybody that has ever used Kambo knows that it is anything other than that. To the contrary, Kambo can help people with substance-addictions like alcohol, tobacco or other drugs. Kambo itself is non-addictive - to be exact, it is quite the opposite of that. 


Is Kambo dangerous? 

If it is used in the right way, Kambo is very secure. Nevertheless it is important to be aware that this is a very potent secretion and one has to know how to work with it. Several factors have to be regarded for a secure intake. Statistically speaking, many more people could suffer side effects from common medication, to use an argument often heard however this should not be an excuse to use it irresponsibly. 

The biggest danger could be when a treatment is done by someone that has no experience in this area – neither as a physician, natural healer or shaman. A white gown and a syringe does not turn every human into a doctor. Equally, a few feathers and a rattle does not make someone a shaman. You should always be mindful to be treated by someone who has experience in this field and this sort of treatment. 

It is best to be careful when taking Kambo with natives in the jungle as some of the local practitioners are not used to working with Westerners and it could happen that they misjudge the state of health of the person being treated. Some tribes traditionally do not use  Kambo when they are very weak or sick


How is the secretion extracted from the frog?

Four wooden sticks are put into the ground shaping a small square. Then the frog gets tied with four separated strings by all of his extremities to the wooden sticks, suspending the animal in a way so that it does not move. To make the frog excrete the venom he needs to feel in danger, and one way to invoke this would be to knock repeatedly on his head, thereby annoying him to excrete a white, slimy secretion on his legs and the side of his body. This substance is scraped off with a small piece of wood and then transferred to another flat wooden stick, on which it later dries out and gets durable for a long time. The frog is not really hurt during this procedure – nevertheless, the whole act is also not comfortable for him. Once the extraction is done, the frog is released into freedom and his natural surroundings.

Are there any scientific studies on kambo?


The Kambo secretion based on human use was first researched and described by western scientists John Daly, Vittorio Erspamer and their team, published in 1992.  

Vittori Erspamer already published an article based on his studies of peptides in Phyllomedusa skin “a huge factory and store-house of active peptides” in 1985.  

Those bioactive peptides are also the reason why the pharma-industry is so interested in it, developing a new medication from one of the peptides could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars and there are already several patents existing on some of the peptides.  

What are the bioactive peptides in kambo?

  • adenoregulins

  • bradykinins

  • tachykinins

  • caerulein

  • sauvagine

  • tryptophyllins

  • deltorphins

  • dermaseptins

  • dermorphins

  • phyllocaeruleın

  • bombesins



What is a bioactive peptide?




  1. (of a substance) having a biological effect.




  1. a compound consisting of two or more amino acids linked in a chain, the carboxyl group of each acid being joined to the amino group of the next by a bond.
