Schedule a Private Kambo Session with John

Kambo Austin TX

Hi, I’m John of Mystical Heart Collective, and I am proud to be providing Kambo in Wimbery, San Marcus, and Austin.  Learn more about me here. 

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 our 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 us, and filling us up with what we 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 us.

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.


Physical Healing

  • Strengthening our immune system
  • Migraines
  • Restoring a healthy gut biome
  • Blood circulation problems
  • Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
  • Vascular insufficiency
  • Organ diseases
  • Cancer
  • Fertility problems
  • Deeply rooted toxins
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue or low-energy
  • Arthritis
  • 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 us 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 us to release thought patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving us. This can help with anxiety, brain fog, and improve mental clarity.

It has been known to help with depression, and allow us to remove emotional blockages. The frog helps us to release emotions that we have been storing in our bodies.


Spiritual and Energetic Healing

Traditionally all illness was seen as a manifestation of blocked energy. Kambo helps us to move stagnant energy and un-tie energetic blockages. It helps us by removing “panema” or bad luck/energy stored in our being. 

A meeting with this sacred medicine can help us connect to our highest self more easily. By removing physical, emotional, mental, and energetic blocks we are more easily able to access our authentic selves.

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.

During the Kambo ceremony, we will open 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 our physical eyes and to open our 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
  • Stroke
  • 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)
  • Undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy for 4-6 weeks afterwards
  • Taking immunosuppressants for organ transplants
  • Women who are or may be pregnant
  • Women who are breast feeding a child under 6 months old
  • Addison’s Disease
  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Recovering from a major surgical procedure
  • Under 18 years old
  • Have take 5-meo-DMT or Bufo Alvarius Toad Medicine within the last 4 weeks:
How Many Sessions Do I Need?

Like antibiotics, Kambo works best if you take the full course. A full course of Kambo is 3 sessions within the duration of 1 lunar cycle (28 days).

If you only receive one session, you will still receive benefits. However, it works best if you can do all 3.

What is the Cost?

There are a number of treatment options, ranging from a light introduction to a heavy and speedy detox. Rates are dependent on your individual needs and the experience you want to have. You can expect to spend $100 to $150 per session, with 10% off if you purchase the lunar cycle 3 session pack. We will discuss specific rates prior to our first meeting.
