Sapo or Kambo is the secretion produced by the Phyllomedusa Bicolor (the giant monkey tree frog), a bright green tree frog native to the upper regions of the Amazon Rainforest.
The secretion is considered to be part of the innate immune system of the frog. It is produced by stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system in response to tissue damage, a threat from any predator or systematic stress. The secretion contains a large number of highly concentrated bioactive polypeptides, which are opening new fields in bio-medical and psycho-spiritual research.
Kambo applications that Lindsay offers are 1 on 1 private ceremonies. The first step is to have a private consultation to discuss the process and answer any questions. Together the client and Lindsay will go over the process to get prepared for the treatment. Once the day of Ceremony is here you will have instructions to guide as you prepare. There will be an intention setting process that will be held in a safe container so that way we can dive deep together to allow Kambo to do its work. Once the medicine is applied it will remain on for 20-40 minutes depending on the client. On average the ceremony will last between 2-3 hours.
Kambo can have different effects from person to person.
The most common effects after the medicine is applied are:
Increased heart rate
Swelling in face and extremities
