Experience the Healing Frog Medicine of the Amazon
Hi, I’m John of Mystical Heart Collective, and I am proud to offer Kambo to the Central Texas Hill Country Area in and around Wimberley, San Marcos, and Austin, Texas. You can learn more about me here.
All sessions take place at our home in the gentle wooded hills of Wimberley, about 35 miles southwest of Austin. I offer both private and group ceremonies.
This holistic medicine is a beautiful way to detox and strengthen your body, mind, and spirit. Kambo is a non-psychoactive sacred earth medicine from the Amazon jungle. It comes from the secretion of the Giant Monkey Frog (phyllomedusa bicolor). The secretion contains many peptides that work towards improving your holistic health.

How does Kambo Work?
The secretion is applied to small burns made on the skin where the peptides can enter the bloodstream. The medicine helps by removing and detoxing what is no longer serving you, and filling you up with what you need to function in better health. A good way to think about a kambo detox is like a mechanic servicing a rusty part: they clean off the rust and oil the part so it can operate more smoothly. Kambo does the same for your body and its systems.
Illness is never compartmentalized. If you are feeling physically unwell, there are emotional, mental, and energetic components to the illness. Treating one area without addressing the others will never be as effective as looking at the big, interconnected picture.
As Kambo is a holistic medicine, it can help in all areas of our being.
- Strengthening your immune system
- Restoring a healthy gut biome
- Blood circulation problems
- Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
- Vascular insufficiency
- Organ diseases
- Fertility problems
- Deeply rooted toxins
- Chronic pain
- Fatigue or low-energy
- Sexual dysfunction/hormone imbalances
A number of the peptides found in the frog’s secretions are anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and anti-bacterial. The frog helps you by performing a cellular detox. At the same time, other peptides provide support to vital cellular process helping them to function more efficiently.
Emotional and Mental Healing
Kambo can help you release thought patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving you. This can help with anxiety, brain fog, and improving mental clarity.
It has been known to help with depression, and allows you to remove emotional blockages. The frog helps release emotions that you have been storing in your tissues, organs, and cells.
Spiritual and Energetic Healing
Traditionally all illness was seen as a manifestation of blocked energy. Kambo helps to move stagnant energy and un-tie energetic blockages. It helps us by removing “panema” or bad luck/energy stored in your being.
A meeting with this sacred medicine can help you connect to your highest self more easily. By removing physical, emotional, mental, and energetic blocks you are more easily able to access your authentic self.
What to Expect During Your Session
It is best to have the medicine first thing in the morning, as you will need to fast for at least 7 hours prior to the ceremony.
We will open the Kambo ceremony by setting an intention for your work with the medicine. You will have the opportunity to partake in rapé (ceremonial tobacco snuff – which helps open you to the medicine and ground you) and sananga (an eye drop that helps to heal both your physical eyes and to open your third eye) – both of which are optional.
You will then consume 750ml of water, followed by the application of the medicine. As soon as the medicine is applied, you will begin to feel it quickly. It causes an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and blood circulation. You may feel very hot, or cold. It can make you feel nauseous, vomit, and or have diarrhea, although none of those are necessary to receive the benefits of the medicine. The medicine will stay on for 20-30 minutes. When it is taken off we will close the ceremony and have a small meal.
Who Should NOT Receive Kambo?
If you have or have experienced any of the following, you are not a good candidate for Kambo Medicine:
- Heart problems
- On medication for low blood pressure
- Brain hemorrhage
- Aneurisms or blood clots
- Lack mental capacity to make the decision to take Kambo
- Serious mental health problems (excluding depression and anxiety)

How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Like antibiotics, Kambo works best if you take the full course. A full course of Kambo is three sessions within the duration of one lunar cycle (28 days). If you only receive one session, you will still receive benefits. However, it works best if you can do all three.
What is the Cost?
There are a number of treatment options, ranging from a light introduction to a heavy and speedy detox. Your cost will depend on your individual needs and the experience you want to have. We highly recommend committing to an initial three session lunar cycle for best results.
$125 — Single Session
$337 — 3 Session Lunar Cycle (10% off – must be completed within 28 days)
$600 and up — 6 Sessions or more are $100 per session (20% off)
All sessions must be used within six months of purchase date.
