I am a trained Kambo practitioner, listed as KNP at Kambo Naturista. Through professional training, undergoing silent dieta in the Amazon and self-applications I feel committed to the medicine and the call to bring its power to people who seek change. Through my own experience, and through observing benefits of Kambo on others, I believe it to be one of the strongest medicines – capable of helping an individual undergo profound changes.
How does Kambo affect you?
THE PHYSICAL LEVEL
Kambo detoxes the body, strengthens the immune system and activates self-healing within the body. It is a natural antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal and thereby kills bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is anti-inflammatory, cleans the blood and can improve general well-being. Kambo has helped many people with a variety of conditions including allergies, skin diseases, asthma, rheumatism and joint disorders, chronic pain and infections, malaria, diabetes, hepatitis, epilepsy, depression, post chemotherapy, disease prevention and many more. However it is important to acknowledge, that there has been no modern clinical research done on humans to illustrate its curative nature. This is why we need to be patient before officially calling Kambo a medicine.
ON THE ENERGETIC LEVEL
The tribesmen of the Amazon use this medicine to clear themselves from „paneme“(bad luck -negative energy). Kambo is a cleansing agent for it and after the treatment most people feel a strong optimism and clearness of the mind. They may feel recharged in strength and stamina and capable to achieve their goals. It is said that everything flows a bit better in the life after taking Kambo, because externally we always attract the thing that is going on internally.
ON THE INDIVIDUAL LEVEL
The outcome of the treatments can vary in their effects as well as in the amount of time it may take to feel those effects. Everybody is different and so every session can be a bit different because Kambo works on many levels and is unique in its translation. It is very important to not compare Kambo with conventional medicines. In our opinion to gain true long term benefits of healing, one often has to make healthy lifestyle changes in addition to the treatment. It is not truly beneficial to take Kambo and continue an unhealthy lifestyle because the problem that has been treated would most likely present itself again.

The Kambo medicine, that I serve is collected by the same source; Namely family members of Maestro Robinson from Matse’s tribe (see photo below). The medicine is in the fair trade retribution to the Kambo Naturista. Third of the price we pay into the medicine is invested to build natural habitats (ponds) for frogs in the rain-forest close-by Iquitos (Peru).
How can I schedule an individual kambo session?
First you need to fill in the following form about your health conditions. I will contact you with further details.
How can I prepare for Kambo treatment?
It is advisable to stick to a light diet some days prior to the treatment – you should stay away from deep fried, spicy food or food that is hard to process. Furthermore you should renounce, alcohol, drugs (if not in a case of addiction) and sexual activities. This can help to have a much deeper cleansing and benefit more from the treatment.
Kambo has the best effect if you use it on an empty stomach. Therefore you should not consume any solid or liquid food for around 12 hours before the treatment and drink only water.
During the treatment it is also advisable to wear comfortable clothes.
It should be taken an account that the whole treatment may take around 2 hours and it is advisable not to have any schedules after the session as in some cases one may feel to rest and have time for integration.
Last words about my path
I joined the training in Peruvian rainforest of Kambo Naturista with a mere desire to express my gratitude to Kambo, because it helped me overcome my 15 years long addiction, and induced the most profound changes in my life, ways of being and habits. Initially, I did not intend to be a practitioner myself. However, it was during the silent retreat and dieta in the jungle, when I had a profound surrender to the frog spirit, and came to accept that I would serve the medicine, especially to people who suffer with (substance) addictions.
During the dieta, an Icaro, a healing song for Kambo, in my mother tong (Georgian) and a prayer, came to me, which I say out loud or wholeheartedly in silence during each ceremony that I participate.
Along the spirit of Kambo, I will forever be grateful to my teachers: Diedre (my foremost sister and teacher, who introduced me to Kambo), Deyan (who trained and taught how to apply Kambo to myself and others in the most safe conditions) and Gaera (who supported my quest in the process).
When I do not apply kambo, my life flows between daily chores, family, practice, and paid labor at the University of Amsterdam with students. You can read more about my teaching on the website experiential dance.
Wishing you profound benefits from Kambo medicine.
