WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF KAMBO?
Kambo: A Holistic Approach to Balancing Mind, Body, and Spirit
If you venture into the Amazon Rainforest, you'll hear tales of a medicine that does more than just heal the body; it elevates the soul. It's called Kambo, and locals swear by its ability to bring happiness, good fortune, and to unlock the heart chakra, among other things. Kambo aims to remove "panema"—a term that roughly equates to negative energy, or anything that dampens your experience of joy, peace, and abundance. Think of it as the ultimate detox for your spirit, a kind of cleanse for the modern soul.

The Science Behind the Scenes
Since the 1980s, researchers have been dissecting what makes Kambo tick. They've found that it's rich in peptides, short chains of amino acids that have a variety of effects on the body. These peptides interact with everything from your gut muscles to your blood circulation, even stimulating key areas in the brain like the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland.
So, while science catches up, the anecdotal evidence is hard to ignore. Kambo isn't just another trend; for many, it's a holistic game-changer. Whether you're stuck in the "waking up stage" of healing or navigating the ups and downs of the "processing stage," consider this: maybe Kambo is the key to moving forward.

What is Kambo?
Kambo, also known as the "vaccine of the forest," is a natural non-psychoactive secretion from the Phyllomedusa Bicolor Frog, a bright green tree frog native to the Amazon. Forget the myths; it's neither venomous nor poisonous. Think of it as the frog's natural sunscreen.
Here's where it gets interesting. Kambo's a powerful, multi-layer healer. Primarily, it's a supercharger for your liver and immune system. It's also your go-to for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and kicking drug dependency. You get a stamina boost and a stronger body, too.
What makes Kambo unique? It's cocktail of bioactive peptides that can cross the blood-brain barrier. They attach effortlessly to your cell receptors and kickstart your body's own healing powers. Simply put, Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances found in the world and one of the strongest natural ways to strengthen the human body..
Now, how's it done? Tiny burns on your skin known as gates are created. Sounds wild, but it's not bad. The secretion is placed on top allowing the peptides to enter your lymphatic system. A liquid bandage called "dragon's blood" is applied after to minimize scarring. The whole ceremony lasts around 1.5 to 2 hours, with the medicine on for about 20-40 minutes.
But it's not just physical. Kambo hits on emotional, spiritual, and mental levels. In shamanic terms, it purges dense energy, diseases, addictions, pain, and trauma. It also enhances awareness and intuition. Most folks speak of a 'Kambo afterglow,' a feeling of being lighter, clearer, and euphoric. In essence, Kambo is a reset button for your body and soul.
Where did Kambo come from?
The use of Kambo originated in the Amazon jungle by several groups of indigenous South American peoples. It was first discovered by the western world in 1986 by Peter Gorman, and investigative journalist that had been spending time with a native a tribe called the Matses.
Kambo or sapo as some call it, was initially utilized as a medicine to aid the hunters of the tribe, giving them increased endurance, stamina, visual acuity, increased hearing ability, a reduced need for food and water, and to mask their human scent to better sneak up on animals. It was often used in conjunction with a snuff called Nu-Nu to bring them visions of where their next successful hunt would be. It was also applied to women and children to treat various ailments such as malaria, parasites, snake bites and “panema” or bad luck.
Hey, beautiful soul! Welcome to Love Kambo. I'm Danika, and I'd be truly honored to hold space for you on this incredible journey of healing and self-discovery. I've been immersed in the world of kambo for over three years. Let me tell you, it's not just a job; it's a lifestyle. To truly serve this medicine, I've got to be in harmony with myself first and foremost. This is crucial when you're holding space for others who are navigating deep traumas.
I've been in the trenches myself for the past 8 years, working through my own healing with all sorts of modalities—think therapy, Tony Robbins, coaching, somatic work, breathwork, inner child work, you name it. I've also delved deep into Ayahuasca, Bufo, Iboga, and of course, Kambo. Interestingly, I’ve always had a connection with frogs, playing with them as a kid and even having a couple as pets in my 20s.
Here's the thing—Healing? It’s not a destination. It's an ongoing journey where you learn to surrender, shed layers of self-judgment, embrace self-love, and a whole lot more. You're not damaged or in need of fixing. You're already whole. But life throws curveballs, leading to traumas and fears that can mask your true self. This work is about peeling back those layers and rediscovering who you really are.
In this work, you're stronger than you think. So often we outsource our healing to others. But listen, only YOU can heal yourself. My role? Think of me as your guide. I create a safe space with none judgement for you show up and do the work.
Kambo is a powerful healer. Personally, it's helped me detox, heal my gut, detox from breast implant illness and release trapped energies. I’m a certified Advanced Kambo Practitioner, Reiki Master, and Somatic Breathwork Practitioner. Plus, I've got a nursing background. I've trained under five Kambo teachers, including a 9-month mentorship with Taylor Eyewalker. Currently, I'm in a three-year Somatic Experiencing training program focused on trauma and nervous system balance.
I have been initiated into the Bwiti in Gabon twice with Iboga and facilitate part time at Awaken Your Soul Iboga retreat center in Costa Rica. I have been to the jungles of Peru twice to learn from my indigenous Matses teachers and hold the kambo frog.
I’m also experienced in serving Kambo to individuals dealing with auto immune, Lyme disease, Alzheimer, Cancer, clients coming off medications & other health issues. Trust me, it's not as simple as just applying the medicine; the people who seek me out are looking for deep emotional and physical healing.
I primarily operate in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas. So, if you're ready to embark on a transformative journey with kambo, hit me up! Let’s get this healing journey started. 🐸💚
