After hearing such an ominous-sounding tagline I was even more nervous and fearful as the few remaining seconds ticked by until the ceremony began. Serious doubts cut through my peace of mind like a razor blade as I listened to other participants describe their previous experiences.
Please stay away from chemical laden “healing” products such as Neosporin. We also offer virtual Kambo preparation and integration sessions to those that have or will experience medicine elsewhere and are looking for additional support and guidance. With no expectations and a sense of curiosity in the air, we set up the ceremonial space, making sure there was some water at hand, just in case.
Kambo is a secretion of the Phyllomedusa bicolor tree frog, also known as the giant leaf frog. The kambo secretion is collected by causing the frog stress and then scraping the milky substance from its back. Common natural remedies don’t seem to work deep enough, and western medicine’s often-aggressive bandaid solutions fail to heal at the root cause. This handful of questions could be vital in saving lives, and ensuring harm reduction in the ceremony space. We can’t say for sure that Begley asked the church all, or any of the above questions, but in his memory, we can practice better safety standards. Also, please expect to have all money exchanges complete before your ceremony (Paypal, Venmo, Bitcoin (or possibly other cryptos)).
THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO CEREMONY:
One reason that yoga and kambo can be powerful together is that they both have the potential to promote physical and emotional healing. Yoga is well-known for its ability to reduce stress and tension in the body, as well as improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Kambo, on the other hand, is believed to have strong purifying and detoxifying effects on the body, helping to flush out toxins and boost the immune system.
The Kambo waterworks
Ultimately, we don’t know enough yet about kambo to fully understand its risks. It is possible that it poses a risk of heart attack even in seemingly healthy people. Therefore a decision to take kambo should not be taken lightly – and every effort should be taken to choose a trustworthy and experienced facilitator. You should not use any purging medicines (kambo or ayahuasca) without carefully considering how your eating disorder will affect your ceremony and how the ceremony may affect your eating disorder.

If your practitioner knows you suffer from bulimia, they can adjust your kambo session to meet your needs. They may urge you to focus on the urge to purge without actually reaching the point of extensive purging.
