Kambo Treatments


At Dreamglade we also offer ‘Kambo’ treatments for those that wish to go deeper with their healing process during their stay with us.

Following the advice of our resident curanderos, Kambo treatments are not administered if the person is partaking in a medicinal plant ‘dieta’ as the energies involved can clash somewhat. However, once we have ‘closed’ the said ‘dieta’ our guests are free to receive kambo and we usually start with just 2-3 ‘points’ as a beginner dose, most often first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, after an Ayahausca ceremony.

‘Kambo’ or ‘Sapo’, as it also known, is the venomous secretion of Phyllomedusa bicolor (the giant leaf or monkey frog), a bright green tree frog native to the Amazon basin. The secretion of the Kambo frog has been used as a medicine amongst the Upper Amazonian peoples for millennia.

We obtain fresh Kambo ‘sticks’ directly from the ‘Matses’ tribe, famous throughout the region as master practitioners of this very powerful medicine.


The frog venom contains many peptides that are active in the human body, including phyllocaerulein, phyllomedusin, phyllokinin, sauvagine, dermaseptins, adenoregulin, deltorphin, and dermorphin.
Numerous medical studies have found that there are profound health benefits from this ‘organic cocktail’ such as – stimulates gut flow and stomach acid secretion, lowers blood
pressure, stimulates the adrenals and dopamine release, fights microbes (bacterial infections) and may even combat cancer. It also affects the activity of important neurotransmitters and compounds (adenosine, adrenaline and serotonin) and can significantly relieve pain and usually induces a state of long-lasting euphoria.
We encourage all participants to drink plenty of water prior to the treatment to induce ‘purging’ (vomiting) which also helps to release toxins from the body.

Common symptoms once the venom has been applied include – increased heart rate, dizziness, increased body heat, nausea, vomiting and sometimes even diarrhea but once the initial, slightly unpleasant effects have passed (usually within 20 – 30 mins) guests are left feeling calm, centered and full of energy and also notice that their senses have been significantly enhanced.

We charge only 50 Peruvian soles for the Kambo treatments. (approx 12 usd)
