Kambô is said to remove “anything that does not serve us” and bring the person back to their natural state of perfect harmony and highest physical, emotional, and spiritual potential, reconnecting one to self.
Kambô offers full-body detoxification and a natural way to empower and boost your immune system. It also has potent anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties, being one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found naturally in the world.
Immediate and short-term effects include enhanced mood; focused mind; energy; and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger, and thirst. The mind becomes still and you feel lighter. Everything becomes easier to manage. In the long term, Kambô empowers the immune system by rousing the body’s defenses to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur. At a mental level, your mind becomes more focused and still. Increased resistance to stress. Everything feels calmer and becomes easier to manage. You feel lighter. In spiritual terms, Kambô works in a mystical fashion as a light that opens the way, helping to overcome obstacles and release blockages on an emotional level. It clears the energy field and realigns the chakras enabling one to break negative habits and think more naturally.
The properties of the peptides found in Kambô also cover a wide range of potential medical uses ranging from cancer, addiction, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Candida, fibromyalgia, depression, PTSD, anxiety, chronic fatigue, acute pain, migraines, blood circulation problems, vascular insufficiency, organ disease, skin and eye issues, fertility problems, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, Lyme’s, autoimmune disorders, etc.
Kambô in its original, natural form is a holistic treatment that works on the mind, body, energy, and spirit at all levels in ways that we still do not completely understand. The natives are quite right to use the word ‘magic’ when describing this substance.
Traditionally Kambô is used by many tribes such as the Matses, Katukina, Yawanawa, and Maruba. The use of Kambô differs amongst tribes, but the main traditional uses revolve around lifting panema (an indigenous name for dark or negative energy) and for hunting magic (by increasing speed and energy during hunting and making the hunter invisible by temporarily eliminating human odor). Amazonian tribes also use Kambô medicinally for malaria; snake bites; fevers; infections; fertility problems; to cleanse, detox, and strengthen the mind and body; to increase energy and stamina, and to reduce pain.
