Kambo is the skin secretion of the Amazonian tree frog Phyllomedusa Bicolor. It is primarily used by the indigenous communities for healing, increasing strength and stamina and reducing 'panema' (roughly translated as 'bad luck'). It is now being widely studied by scientists and has been found to contain numerous peptides that are identical to those found in the human body, which have a vast range  of anti-biotic, anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anesthetic and immune-boosting effects. Kambo is non-hallucinogenic and legal to use in the UK. 

Kambo has been reported to help many people with issues such as:

  • Depression

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Chronic Pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Addictions

  • Allergies

  • Digestive issues

  • Circulatory problems

  • Arthritis

  • Lyme's Disease

  • Thyroid issues

  • Menstrual problems

  • Hormonal imbalances

  • Skin conditions e.g. acne, eczema, psoriasis

  • PTSD

  • Migraines

  • Parasites, viruses, bacterial and yeast infections

  • Anxiety 

In my own experience, Kambo works in a very holistic way and on many levels - physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Following my own intensive Kambo Practitioner training with Kambo Naturista in the Amazon rainforest of Peru, I was able to shift stuck energies and patterns that nothing else had been able to shift, which was totally life changing!

Kambo is applied to small points on the skin called 'gates' where the epidermal layers have been burnt off with a thin stick called a tamshi. This allows the peptides to travel deep within the body where they exert a very strong purgative effect.  Immediately prior to the treatment you will be required to drink approx. 1 litre of water. You will also be required to fast for a period of 12 hours before the treatment (which usually takes place in the morning to minimise fasting time, so your last meal will be at dinner). Usually the entire session is about 3 hours long although the purgative part is about only 30 mins. After about an hour, most people are ready to have a light meal and then depart feeling energised. However, everyone is different and some people may feel drained or take longer to recover. I will stay with you until I am sure you are recovered, regardless of how long this takes.

Although Kambo is very safe when used correctly it is a powerful experience and it is important to have some idea of the process prior to booking a session, as well as to have a preliminary chat with me where we can discuss any contra-indications. and are both good resources for further information and here are some good videos (first one is me being interviewed about Kambo) and scientific articles:

I do not generally offer group Kambo sessions as I prefer to give my undivided attention to one individual. This helps to create a safe environment where you can really surrender to the healing process. Occasionally, I may offer sessions for two or more people, but be aware that the second person will have to wait some time for the first person's session to finish before they start their treatment. My sessions are conducted on a private 1-1 basis either in the comfort of your own home or at my space in North London which has been custom designed to meet the particular needs of my Kambo clients.

* Please note - I will not serve Kambo to people who are expecting a 'quick fix' and who have no intention of making changes to their lifestyle to improve their health and well-being. Unfortunately I occasionally come across people who think they can use a Kambo 'detox' as a way of giving themselves a dubious reason to carry on with their poor lifestyle choices! This is disrespectful to the frog and a waste of it's precious and sacred offering to humankind. However, if you are really serious about addressing issues such as smoking, drug/alcohol misuse, poor diet, addictions, then Kambo may help and I will be happy to discuss whether it could be a suitable treatment for you.
