Mer information om Kambo..
Kambo is a traditional medicine used by many of the tribes of the Amazon rainforest. It is a secretion of a large tree frog known as the Giant Green Monkey Tree Frog. Its scientific name is Phyllomedusa Bicolor - Phyllo means "leaf" and medusa means "guardian". Kambo, also known as Sapo or Dow-kiet is traditionally used in three ways. Firstly as a way to cleanse, strengthen and energise the minds and bodies of the hunters. After taking Kambo, they are able to run faster for longer, eat less and sleep less. Secondly, it is used as a medicine for Malaria, fever, infections and snake bites. Thirdly, it is used to clear away dark or negative energy known as "panema". When "panema" is cleared everything becomes easier, obstacles can be overcome and life flows more naturally.
Kambo is one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anaesthetics found in the world and one of the strongest natural ways to empower our immune system.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species lists the Kambo Frog in the ‘Least Concern’ category in view of their wide distribution and large population. The only known threats to this species of frog at the moment are spawn predation and the potential destruction of their habitat.
FROGS ARE NOT HARMED IN KAMBO COLLECTION
The frog is not harmed during the harvesting of Kambo. It is considered bad luck to do so. In order to harvest medicine from the frog, they must be collected very early in the morning. The shaman calls the frog by mimicking it’s natural song. When the frog calls back, thinking it is talking to a mate, the shaman knows where they are located. The frog is often found in a tree and sometimes on the rainforest floor. The frog is collected and brought back to the village where the secretion is harvested. The frog is then released unharmed.
