Please bring up to 3 liters of fresh and warmed spring water to drink for the ceremony. Cold water chills the liver

Preparation before ceremony

 Kambo is best on an empty stomach so it is best to avoid eating solid heavy food for at 12 hours before your session. Also avoid processed sugar, deep fried and spicy food, red meat, and cheese

It is advisable not to drink alcohol or consume substances for 24 to 48 hrs before or after the treatment Except in the case of addiction

Eat easy to digest light food. You will find your experience more productive and cleansing will go deeper



For some people it can be beneficial to avoid sweet fruit for 2-3 days after the ceremony as Kambo specifically targets the immune system and sugar can lower the immune system if there are certain imbalances.

Please allow yourself 2/3 hours recovery time after the ceremony.

Purging is normal – vomiting, bowel movements, etc. For some people, you may notice some physical swelling on the face after the treatment. You may also experience tiredness, and exhaustion immediately after the session. So, it’s suggested that rest and relax for the whole day, and take it very easy

Please be completely honest about any health concerns you may have that you think may affect your ability to take this medicine safely. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any concerns when we chat on the phone.

The session may last up to approx. 1 hour
