Today we’re talking about the deep healing power of Kambo.
Kambo, also known as the “Vaccine of the Rainforest,” is a non-psychoactive ancient shamanic remedy that hails from the depths of the Amazon and is simply the secretion of Phyllomedusa bicolor, or the giant monkey tree frog. This ethically-sourced leaf frog secretion is best described as a detoxing purgative, holding powerful treatment potential for a myriad of different mental, physical, and spiritual ailments.
Kambo has been used for thousands of years amongst various South American tribes, particularly in Brazil and Peru. The first documented observations of tribal use date back to 1925, but it has only gained notoriety in the western world in recent decades as a ‘healing’ and ‘ detox’ intervention to cleanse the bodily systems.
My guest today, Jetta Blaine, is a certified Kambo practitioner, Thai bodywork practitioner, yoga instructor, and lifestyle integration coach who spent years traveling the world studying and living different healing modalities in search of equanimity for her mental and physical health. She is a living example of post-traumatic growth, and credits Kambo and plant medicines as the forefront guides on her healing journey from her once crippling PTSD and depression.
Jetta joins me to share her personal journey with plant medicine and Kambo and how they have been some of the major tools she has used in her journey back to health, and healing, and wholeness. She also provides an in-depth explanation of what Kambo is, where it originated from, why it is beneficial for the mind and body, and how it is safely administered as an alternative medicine treatment.
“I’m still on the healing journey, but I feel like I’m a completely different person. I feel like I breathe new air. I feel like I have clarity and like I can focus. All I wanted to do for so long was find homeostasis within my mental health because I would kind of bounce off the walls and experience extreme highs and extreme lows. Kambo really helped me to get a lot of stability within my mental health to become a much happier and more whole person.” – Jetta Blaine
