Katie: Howdy, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama” podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com. That’s Wellnesse with an E on the top, my new private care line. This episode solutions all the questions I bought from you guys each time I posted an image on-line with some dots burned onto my pores and skin or talked about Kambo and have been requested, “What’s that? Why would you try this? What does it do?” This episode goes deep on all of these questions. I’m right here with Todd Shipman, who’s Biohacker Todd on Instagram who’s a private buddy of mine, and likewise who launched me to Kambo for the primary time. I’ve now carried out it fairly a couple of instances and observed a wide range of advantages, bodily and emotional, psychological advantages, and needed to share with you guys the historical past of it, the science of it, and my private expertise. So, on this episode, we go deep on all of these, and Todd shares his expertise as a licensed Kambo practitioner. We additionally speak about the place you will discover this and study extra and likewise who shouldn’t do it. So very fact-packed episode. I do know that you’ll study quite a bit, and let’s be part of Todd. Todd, welcome to the podcast.

Todd: Thanks, Katie.

Katie: It is a lengthy overdue one. We’ve been making an attempt to file this one for a very long time, I feel since I first did Kambo. And I do know each time I put up an image on Instagram with random dots on my pores and skin or point out Kambo, I get dozens and dozens of individuals saying, “What’s that? What does it do?” So, to begin broad, clarify to everyone listening what Kambo is.

Todd: Sure. So, Kambo is the secretion from an Amazonian frog that we name Kambo, Its scientific title can be phyllomedusa bicolor, which is, like, plant guardian. And what the frog does is it releases the secretion as a protection mechanism for any snake or something that’s up within the timber with it. And if most any animal will eat the frog, it’ll kill it. Now, the secretion has lots of of bioactive peptides, that means that it’s really useful for mammals. So, for us, after we put it on us, we really get a useful response to it.

Katie: And okay, so that you talked about the phrase peptides, and I’m so glad we get to lastly speak about peptides as a result of I’ve solely briefly touched on them and there’s actually loads of completely different ones. Proper now, I’ve heard of individuals utilizing sure peptides, injecting them for very particular functions. I really feel like there’s much more mainstream understanding of what peptides are. Basically, they’re simply chains of amino acids from what I perceive. So this may be, like…It’s a reasonably broad time period. And also you talked about in Kambo, there’s actually lots of of them in these frogs and that’s a part of their protecting mechanism. So, what are among the issues…? Like, how do peptides work within the physique, or what are among the peptides which can be interacting with the physique?

Todd: Yeah, so that you sort of hit that on there may be there’s tons and tons of various kinds of peptides for various causes, and bioactive that means that it actually works in concord with our physique and it has useful responses. So it’s mainly…they’re the brief chain of amino acids, like, the constructing block of protein. So, it simply works in concord with their physique and it actually relies on your purpose. So, you might have, which most individuals learn about can be, like, collagen peptides. Now, these are thought-about bioactive. Individuals use them for anti-aging, for higher pores and skin elasticity. Individuals use peptides for various issues like therapeutic ligaments, ulcers, weight reduction, I imply, cool issues like making your self tan, rising your hair, placing shade again in your hair.

Those which can be in Kambo are extra on a medical degree. You might have completely different ones. You might have, like, neuropeptides. And these are peptides that truly can cross the blood-brain barrier, which is one factor that makes them so impactful, after which you might have completely different ones for like gastrointestinal peptides. You might have ones for, like, hypertension, hypotension, completely different objectives for various peptides. So, it’s a bit completely different, I feel, than those that persons are injecting themselves with, that are fairly cool. These are at all times enjoyable to play with however they’re additionally extra regulated in the US.

Katie: And definitely from my restricted expertise, it may be a bit bit difficult to study and ensure you’re getting dosing appropriate. And there’s quite a bit that goes into that versus the physique, sort of, figuring out what it wants whenever you’re doing Kambo and having a greater approach to work together with it. Earlier than we begin actually, sort of, going into the small print of what occurs within the ceremonial facet of Kambo and what it appears to be like like whenever you really do it, I’d love so that you can additionally speak a bit bit about your story, and the way you found Kambo and bought into serving to individuals stroll via this expertise.

Todd: Positive. So I’ve been a biohacker, as they’d say, and somebody who focuses on useful wellness for an excellent six, seven years, and I wish to strive a lot of loopy issues, on the lookout for methods to both assist myself or assist others. That being stated, I actually was nonetheless very new to earth drugs and plant drugs. And earth drugs is what we might think about Kambo. And I didn’t know a lot about it. And I had, who’s now my girlfriend, Jill, on the time we have been associates, and she or he was on a journey to heal trauma, emotional and bodily, and she or he had introduced it as much as me. And he or she had instructed me her story, which was actually excessive. And as we joke about, she was the worst salesman for Kambo due to her expertise.

However I keep in mind she had set me up with the practitioner, Caitlin. And after listening to Jill’s story, really, I used to be supposed to speak in entrance of, like, 16,000 those who week on the biohacking convention in Mexico. And after listening to Jill’s story, I used to be like, “Yeah, like I can’t try this, after which go in entrance of all these individuals.” So I instructed Jill I wasn’t gonna do it. And Jill actually instructed me, she was like, “Hear, I’m on this life to higher myself. And the ship is crusing and I’m gonna depart you on the dock. So, you may both include me or hang around.” And at that time, it was only a conviction in her voice that was like, “Wow, okay, there’s one thing I don’t know.”

So I did Kambo, the primary time I did Kambo, it was sort of, it’s very intentional, which we will go into as a result of I’m a really scientific-minded individual, and Jill could be very woo-woo crystals and berries, which I actually love about her. However there’s each side to Kambo with that I’ve skilled it manner too many instances to disregard that facet of Kambo. However I went into it with the intention that she instructed me. , you wanna do that with intentions was to actually truthfully was to only expertise Kambo as a result of I by no means knew what it was about and likewise with simply to, sort of, create possibly some confidence and readability as a result of I had been in a wedding for fairly a while that I wasn’t actually completely satisfied in and I wanted to develop via that.

So, the primary time I did Kambo, it was intense. It was superb. The way in which I felt…I really had a very good expertise via it. And it simply was like…I’ll quick ahead via the precise expertise. However, like, I got here out of it was a lot readability and a lot confidence in my…I simply observed my senses have been so heightened. I used to be like, “Man, these carrots had by no means appeared so orange. The sky hasn’t been so blue.” And it actually intrigued me sufficient to proceed making an attempt it. And once I began studying the deeper components of Kambo and what different individuals have been doing it for, that’s once I was identical to, wow, there’s actually one thing to this. And I’ve at all times been looking for that, you already know, sort of, the golden token on well being. And whereas it’s nonetheless actually not in existence, I really imagine Kambo from the lots of of those who I’ve been capable of serve Kambo and the additional lots of and lots of that I’ve heard about, like, it’s fascinating, full-spectrum of what this might do for individuals with all the advantages on it are simply limitless.

Katie: Yeah, I positively…We’re gonna go deeper on that. I simply additionally wanna name out a couple of issues, such as you talked about, you’ve been a biohacker and tried some excessive issues. I simply wanna speak about among the cool ones. Like, I’ve heard you speak about operating actually lots of of miles in, like, the desert or coaching for hours and hours in a sauna. Like, you do issues I can’t even fathom. And you’ve got been who I’ve carried out Kambo with now a number of instances, most likely, like, seven or eight, possibly much more, I suppose at this level.

Todd: Much more I really feel like.

Katie: Yeah, most likely nearer to the triple ones. And I first heard about it really years in the past via a buddy who had an inoperable mind tumor that wasn’t malignant, however they couldn’t actually do something for it. And also you talked about that peptides can cross the blood-brain barrier. And so she was utilizing it on the time to assist with the irritation associated to that. And it was actually useful for her. And I keep in mind years in the past her speaking about, yeah, you do that factor and then you definately throw up violently after which this entire factor, and I’ve at all times been the bizarre one in all, like, “I wanna strive that.” And I really feel like that’s been a humorous factor to see even in our native space and in associates teams, like, you already know your individuals after they’re like, “Yeah, frog venom and throwing up, cool. Yeah, I’m in.”

However let’s stroll individuals via the practicality a bit little bit of what occurs whenever you really do Kambo. So that you talked about that it’s the secretions which can be coming from this frog. After which clarify why I suppose you may’t simply, like, eat these or take them, like, a complement. Like, they work together with the physique otherwise. So there’s a really particular sort of timeline and the best way you do Kambo and, such as you stated, setting intention and getting mentally in the best area first too.

Todd: Yeah, so to clarify a bit bit about, I suppose so individuals know what’s taking place with that is you’re placing this as on topically. So we use…For those who’re within the jungle, use actually thick sticks. However we use actually small incense and we burn them onto…we make very superficial dots on the pores and skin, open them up, and so they name them gates, the place mainly you’re lymphatic system is broad open. They usually’ve discovered that at the very least for all the things else as a result of if you happen to’re digesting stuff, you do have a protecting mechanism and your digestive system is a closed-off system. So, it’s limiting and the place it’s allowed, what issues are allowed to get into the physique, and the place it goes. So, topically, you’re gonna have a significantly better expertise.

And I suppose if you happen to wanna speak about, like, what the expertise is like, so we burn these dots, and it tends to be…There’s loads of variable elements on what number of dots we do on individuals. Plenty of that is very intuitive, measurement of individual and the power of the drugs as a result of completely different individuals have completely different strengths as a medication. And so, it’s important to begin with Kambo on an empty abdomen. So we propose fasting for at the very least six to eight hours prior since you don’t wish to be purging. For those who purge throughout Kambo orally, you don’t wanna have meals in your abdomen within the course of. So, you drink two liters of water about 5 minutes earlier than the drugs comes on you.

So the Kambo secretion will go on. And that’s really the toughest half for most individuals. It’s by far the toughest half for me after we do Kambo is to drink two liters of water, particularly in 5 minutes. And at that time, actually, you nearly wanna throw up simply from the water, as you already know. And we do typically have those who drink that a lot water and so they simply begin throwing up previous to even have the drugs on them. So, the purpose is as quickly as individuals get the water in them, and it may be one-and-a-half liters typically in the event that they suppose they’re gonna take one other sip and so they’re gonna throw up. So there’s not, like, a set mark for each individual. Clearly, everybody’s abdomen’s a bit completely different sizing.

However that’s after we get the drugs on. We placed on instantly. And what you’re gonna expertise…And that is very basic, but it surely’s quite common. So this isn’t one thing the place, like, that is precisely the way you’re gonna really feel however it’s just about most likely 9 out of 10 individuals will really feel that immediately your coronary heart fee will increase. And I do know with you, I’ve at all times actually appreciated since you wish to quantify issues. So that you’ll have, like, your glucose ranges, you might have your CGM, so your steady glucose meter arrange, and your coronary heart fee going on a regular basis. And we inform tales about once I know you’re about to throw up simply because I’m taking a look at you, I do know your throw up level by your coronary heart fee. And typically if you happen to’re within the toilet or one thing and I do know you’re throwing up as a result of I’m taking a look at your coronary heart fee, you already know, out of your telephone.

So your coronary heart fee will go as much as about initially most likely like 120, 115 to 120. You’ll really feel your coronary heart fee improve. You’ll begin to really feel your coronary heart fee…This all occurs in lower than a minute, mainly, immediately, by the best way, however you’ll begin to really feel your heartbeat in your ears. You would possibly begin to really feel, like, some swelling in your eyes. It’s not painful or something of that kind. And then you definately begin to expertise considerably, like, of a niacin flush. And for me, it appears like I’m in an infrared sauna. Like, I get actually scorching. Like, I get drenched. I’m drenched in sweat inside 5 minutes, you already know, simply. However throughout the first couple of minutes, I’m already sweating fairly dangerous from Kambo.

And from there, mainly, what’s taking place although, response to your physique, is with the peptides. So if the peptides are being absorbed via the lymphatic system into the blood and that is all responses, so that you’re gonna really feel various things. There isn’t any scientific, like, information with this, however I really feel that what your response is relies off of what peptides are wanted within the physique and what peptides, what receptors are taking extra of the peptides in. So, for instance, if in case you have nausea coming in, there are particular peptides which can be activating that, tachykinins and bradykinins are these peptides that actually create clean muscle contraction, coronary heart fee, vasoconstriction, all the things happening. And once more, with you having two liters of water and a excessive coronary heart fee, you’re gonna begin to purge.

So, you normally purge throughout the first like…We’ve seen individuals purge within the first minute however typically it’s normally throughout the first 5 or 10 minutes with the nausea that kicks in. And that’s most likely essentially the most discomforting half is, after all, you simply drink two liters of water. So think about consuming a gallon of milk or one thing and making an attempt to run a quarter-mile, it’s simply not gonna occur and also you’re gonna find yourself throwing up. In order that’s why most individuals throw up however you need the water. And the water is your greatest buddy at that time since you’re purging up and it’s really relieving from there. However some individuals, they purge via bowel actions. And never everybody does. However I additionally suppose that’s a part of what peptides your physique’s actually needing in there.

So, the entire expertise might be anyplace from, like, 10 to 25 minutes. Once more, there’s actually no set level. And I feel everybody intuitively is aware of after they’re carried out after they don’t have any extra to purge out. That’s after we work with every individual individually is simply, “All proper, do you suppose it’s carried out? Are you carried out, like, with the nausea?” And when you’re carried out, we take off the drugs. And immediately when the drugs’s off, you begin to plateau and also you normally really feel again to regular inside 10 minutes or so.

Katie: Yeah, I admire how brief it’s. Though typically within the second, it feels for much longer, I feel. And that, such as you defined, was very a lot my expertise as effectively. I keep in mind pondering the primary time I did it, like, there have been solely three of us and beforehand, we sort of talked to and have been like, “Properly, we’re simply gonna every be in our toilet as a result of that manner in the event that they’re throwing up, we’ll be effective.” And I’m like, I used to be like, “I don’t wanna throw up in entrance of individuals.” And I ended up staying within the circle. And it actually does assist to have that neighborhood and that tribe round you, I feel, that it actually was superb how quickly all these stuff you simply described occurred. As quickly because it went on, I keep in mind trying on the others and pondering, “Wow, everyone’s actually pink.” And then you definately, sort of, undergo shade modifications and switch yellow typically or white. After which some individuals…Like my face swoll that first time and I sort of appeared like a frog for a short time after which began throwing up.

And I keep in mind pondering, I feel everyone possibly goes via some extent possibly 5 or 10 minutes in whenever you’re identical to, “Why did I do that? This isn’t very enjoyable.” However then such as you stated, on the opposite facet of it, you are feeling so good and there’s loads of advantages. I wanna speak about among the advantages and why individuals do that. However first, you talked about making the gates within the pores and skin and there’s loads of, sort of, intention to these as effectively. They’ll, sort of, go I suppose loads of completely different locations. And I posted footage. I’ve bought them on my again and on my shoulder and throughout completely different locations on my physique, however possibly speak about why somebody would we get them in other places and what they will do whenever you put them completely different locations.

Todd: Yeah, so a generalized remedy, which might be in your arm, and relying on and, once more, if you happen to’re trying extra, like, on a Western intention or if you happen to’re taking a look at, like, Amazonian as a result of the Amazonian tribes, they do it on females on their ankles and on the boys on their arms or their chest. And right here, we don’t try this. I don’t actually agree with that. They really feel that females are weaker in order that’s why they put it on the ankle as a result of it’s…which I don’t agree with. So in reality, they placed on their ankles as a result of they suppose they will’t deal with it as a lot. So, males on their arm. I like on the arm as a result of it’s only a basic remedy and it does all the things. And not one of the remedies are lesser than the others. It’s extra like I feel together with your intentions with Kambo.

So, you may deal with Kambo as if it’s similar to acupuncture. So you may put Kambo on meridian strains and you may put them on chakra factors. And one actually cool factor that we do, as we’ve carried out with you quite a few instances, is we now have a bio-resonance system that may really monitor and quantify our vibrations and frequencies of our physique. And we will run that with individuals and it’ll come again and present, like, blocked meridians. It comes and exhibits, like, your aura and your chakras and which of them are low, and we will work with individuals on that saying that, “Okay, you already know, is your root chakra low and we will put Kambo there to spice up it up?” , relying on additionally what your objectives are. So, if you happen to actually are educated with chakra factors, sure chakras, you already know, your photo voltaic plexus, so if you happen to’re having an issue with possibly self-love or insecurity, we might do Kambo in your photo voltaic plexus and we will, once more, run the bio-resonance system earlier than and after simply to quantify and present you that, “Wow, now your photo voltaic plexus is booming shiny.”

And we see that even…you already know, we see the distinction in individuals. Everybody we’ve carried out Kambo on, we’re at all times in communication with as a result of it’s so highly effective and we get to see all of the modifications and changes of their life. And we all know after they do their coronary heart chakra, which is my favourite to do for mothers as a result of mothers are simply…you guys, you’re recognized that you simply give, give, give, give, give, give, give, and then you definately give, give, give, give, give extra and also you by no means obtain. And I at all times discover with the guts chakra, it’s so highly effective for the love and opening with that that I see with that. However then you are able to do your throat chakras, you are able to do your sacral, all of them, however we actually can’t do your crown. Now, we will get as shut as we will. We don’t actually wanna do Kambo, like, proper dot on the pinnacle. So we will do them on the ears, which you’ve skilled there.

It’s a really completely different expertise with Kambo however that’s actually…particularly the place we’re Jill is as a result of it’s Jill and I which can be doing the Kambo. And Jill, that’s her ardour. , she actually…her focus is with the chakras and all of the intention points of Kambo. In order that’s when she, sort of, will get excited when somebody needs to do, you already know, completely different model remedies. That’s her half, like, to speak about her experiences as a result of she’s carried out all of them for a lot of completely different causes. So she has loads of expertise and will help individuals.

Katie: And I feel one other vital level to the touch on as a result of actually once I posted about this, individuals might be like, “That feels like you might be simply getting poisoned and that’s why you’re throwing up.” And I feel the actually vital distinction, at the very least from my understanding is that the Kambo, the peptides should not really what’s inflicting this. What’s taking place is your physique is so sensible and it’s responding to those in a really particular manner. And identical to when you’re sick, that your physique is aware of what to do to get that out of your physique. So typically whenever you’re sick, you throw up, or typically whenever you’re sick, your lymphatic system prompts extra and also you sweat. It’s mainly, sort of, simply from my understanding, supplying you with, like, a quick observe into loads of these issues, which is why it’s such an efficient lymphatic detox and might be efficient in so many different methods. And you may appropriate me if I’m improper on this, but it surely’s not such as you’re simply getting poisoned. Like, I feel that’s a false impression individuals have. Like, that’s not what’s inflicting the response. Your physique is definitely creating the response. And it’s a very sensible response. Is that proper?

Todd: Yeah, I imply, you could possibly, sort of, take a look at it as like a wholesome stressor. So it’s very related in a manner of, like, you already know, the warmth shock proteins that come from an infrared sauna or with the wholesome advantages that occur if you happen to’re within the ice tank. Like, your physique’s response to all of this. That being stated, sure, I imply, you might have two liters of water in your abdomen. And in case your coronary heart fee goes as much as 120, the nausea, you’re gonna throw up, or if it’s the gastrointestinal peptides your physique accepts, you’re gonna have loads of clean muscle contractions in your intestines and it’s gonna come out that manner via a bowel motion.

However I actually really feel it’s…and I don’t say this, like, you already know, loosely but it surely’s like the final word detox as a result of it’s going into your lymphatic system. And what we see individuals purge out, most individuals wouldn’t imagine simply from listening to via a podcast. However we see balls of worms popping out of individuals which can be purging out. We see parasites. We see mould. We see candida which can be really getting eliminated out of your physique. And once more, you already know, heavy metals, they’ve quantified it with earlier than and after individuals having, like, excessive mercury ranges and doing a number of quantities of Kambo periods one after one other after which doing the steel testing, once more, and it’s decrease. So it’s our physique releasing all the things. It’s sort of only a kick within the butt to assist our physique get all of it out.

Katie: Yeah, I feel I as soon as threw up this jellyfish-looking biofilm factor that took some time to come back up. After which I used to be like, “Properly, I’m glad it’s out, not in.” Nevertheless it’s attention-grabbing, I feel for mould as effectively, proper? Individuals do that very often after poisonous mould publicity.

Todd: Sure. Yeah. We’re excited to see for, once more, Jill as a result of Jill has such excessive ranges of mycotoxins, and heavy metals, and formaldehyde, and stuff. And we’ve been doing it and we’ll get retested to indicate her all of the stuff that she’s eliminated. However yeah, individuals do it for mould. Particularly, like, you already know, we will inform individuals, “Wow, it’s like, yeah, you might have loads of mould, both the place you reside or work since you’re purging out a lot of it.” After which persons are like, “Yeah, I assumed so.” After which they will get examined and it simply sort of verifies for them. However mould, it’s in everybody but it surely simply relies upon how we have an effect on it. However when your physique removes it, like, my favourite half is the purge. I do know it sounds actually bizarre and to, like, really take a look at what persons are purging out as a result of that’s what excites me.

That’s, like, why we’re doing Kambo for a detox facet is you’re eradicating…these items was in you. So, it’s thrilling that it’s now out and possibly provide you with a transparent concept that what you wanna deal with. , whenever you see individuals with the candida, it’s like yeah, I imply, candida, it’s there however if in case you have an overbalance of it, which most individuals do, it’s such as you’re eradicating it. Like, get it out. It doesn’t belong in our physique at that in depth quantity. In order that’s my favourite half is trying on the purge as a result of that was in you. That was in you and now it’s out and you’d by no means know. Like, it’s thrilling.

Katie: And far sooner than loads of the opposite methods you may take care of issues like candida or parasites quite a bit. I really feel like loads of different strategies can take a very very long time, whereas it is a massive jumpstart into that. And once I consider the peptides, an analogy a mutual buddy of ours, Dr. Ted Achacoso, used that I assumed was so good for a way any peptides work together within the physique or any substances was, like, sort of, the concept of a lock and a key. Now we have all these key methods in our physique. And among the keys themselves we make in our our bodies, after which a few of our exogenous, have to come back from outdoors, or some we will get each methods. However I suppose I at all times consider it as no matter peptides your physique wants essentially the most, it’s most likely gonna be the simplest lock and key system and your physique’s gonna prioritize that. In order that’s why individuals can possibly have such completely different experiences or possibly in the event that they’re having persistent ache, the extra, like, pain-relieving peptides work higher or in the event that they’re having, like, parasites, or mould, or these stuff you talked about, those that concentrate on these and assist that response is perhaps the one which stated activate. Nevertheless it’s so cool how sensible our our bodies are.

Additionally, it’s attention-grabbing, possibly it’s simply me, though you may make clear, I additionally really feel like there’s one thing associated to the purging and the intention. You talked about the intention being so vital. And I’ve had a number of experiences the place I used to be fasting for positively greater than eight hours. There was no meals in my abdomen, nothing of shade in my abdomen, nothing that ought to have triggered something bizarre in a purge. And I keep in mind going into one and pondering like, “Oh, I’m simply gonna launch guilt, disgrace, worry, and resentment all of sudden.” And I feel there was extra of that, doubtlessly, than I spotted my physique and it was like, “Okay, maintain on tight.” And I threw up a lot and so darkish. And so I don’t actually perceive it but it surely looks as if there may be additionally a correlation to after we’re letting go of emotional stuff, it will possibly really have an effect on the expertise as effectively.

Todd: Sure. So two issues. I simply wanna speak in regards to the lock and key as a result of I feel that’s one of many unimaginable issues in regards to the confluence is the bioactive peptides as a result of there may be one particular peptide, and it’s dermorphin. It’s 4,000 instances stronger than morphine with out the opioid results. So that you’re gonna get the ache reduction as a result of it’s lock and key, like your physique, your receptors solely take what it wants. And that’s superior. So, in contrast to if you happen to have been to swallow a capsule of morphine, your receptors keep open the complete time, whether or not it’s manner an excessive amount of, which it normally is. In order that’s why you get the horrible opioid results. However going again simply actually quick with the lock and key, I agree, it’s like when issues simply are in concord with our physique, our physique, it simply works, sort of, like, “Okay, that is all I want. Goodbye. Thanks.” That is what we have to operate, versus staying open and getting an excessive amount of.

And now for intentions, I need to say, I imply, I’ve a lot of private expertise and everybody will if in case you have a really highly effective intention…I do know at all times, I imply, I’m the most important cheerleader within the room. However when somebody says like, “My intention is both forgiveness or letting go of some sort of self-hatred,” no matter it’s, I at all times sort of go, “Ooh, that is gonna be a tough one for you.” It’s gonna be tough as a result of, once more, I’m very science-minded, and I can’t sit right here, and I can’t present you that is the scientific information proving this however we’ve carried out this lots of and lots of of instances the place you simply can’t ignore it. You possibly can’t ignore the very fact and the facility of intention with this stuff. And it truly is, I imply, I’ve my very own the place I used to be making an attempt to…I’ve no drawback purging.

And once I had a really particular intention that I wanted to launch one thing out of my life, it’s once I did my three by three, which is three Kambo periods in three hours is the timeframe. I did my three in just about an hour as a result of I couldn’t purge. So I did my first three, I did my first Kambo, and it was like I don’t know, 15 dots or one thing, and I simply couldn’t purge. And all I had in my thoughts was releasing what wanted to be launched and it wouldn’t launch it. It wouldn’t launch. And after about 25 minutes, I did drive myself, which isn’t ultimate on the very starting. Solely on the finish, you wanna really drive your self to purge by possibly sticking your finger in your throat, after which I launched it. And usually they’ll provide you with 40 minutes to get well. And I used to be like, “No, we gotta do that once more as a result of it’s proper there. I can’t take away it.”

And I did it once more, and it simply wouldn’t depart. I imply, I’m sitting there dry heaving. I needed all the things to get this out. Nevertheless it wouldn’t take away, like, as a result of that intention, that energy had such a stronghold on me. However once I launched it on my third one, it was like a bowling ball got here out. It actually did. And it was, like, so…Like, my life’s modified from that for certain. Like, that’s the place I’m, the place I’m now, and who I’m with proper now due to that, and I used to be making an attempt to take away this different factor in my life that wasn’t serving me. Yeah, and once more, simply with anybody doing intentions, there’s a relationship there. I imply, it’s manner too apparent however I simply don’t have that, like, information. However…

Katie: And also you talked about that this initially got here from, sort of, the Amazonian area. Why did they begin doing this there or what did they see as the advantages and when it’s utilized in its extra authentic setting?

Todd: Yeah, that’s what’s actually cool too is…Now, so the city…I don’t wanna name it city legend as a result of I’m not making an attempt to belittle it, however their story is that the drugs man and the tribes 1000’s and 1000’s of years in the past, their entire tribe on the village had turn into sick. So, the drugs man went into the jungle and did Ayahuasca and, you already know, Mom Ayahuasca now instructed him that you should go discover this frog and you should apply it throughout all of the individuals and it was simply what he did, and everybody turned higher and so they have been healed. That’s the story. To be clear, it really was by no means introduced out of the jungle till 1980-something, possibly ’86 with Peter Gorman, who has a e-book known as “Sapo In My Soul.” He additionally has a e-book known as “Ayahuasca in My Soul” that he’d been doing Ayahuasca. However he was there, like, really, scientifically in a manner monitoring, or he was analyzing these tribes.

And, you already know, he had a scientific thoughts and it was actually attention-grabbing for him as a result of he…I suppose we might use the phrase ninja dosed. He was on this teepee with them. He tells a narrative about he didn’t know what was taking place, he was simply hanging out, and one of many guys took a knife and, sort of, gave him a bit reduce on his wrist and one other man got here with the Kambo and rubbed it into his bloodstream, and that’s how his response was so completely different, he couldn’t clarify it. And so he was capable of, sooner or later, lastly, 10 years later took them to get the frog secretion. And he was capable of carry it to the US and have it lab examined. And that’s after they’re identical to, “Holy cow. There’s all these peptides which can be in it.” In order that’s the place it’s turn into extra scientifically considered round right here.

However within the Amazon, they really…Properly, there’s a couple of causes, however their principal purpose is searching as a result of as we talked about earlier than, it, like, actually heightens your senses. In order that they’ll do it for a number of days straight as a result of they wanna go hunt possibly leopards which can be camouflaged within the jungle at night time, and so they really feel like they will odor the animal earlier than they will see it and so they can see it. They use it for fertility, which we nonetheless even use over right here as a result of it removes any sort of mould and it removes the irritation in our reproductive organs. So, we will see why it does work, however they use it to create fertility. After which, on the opposite finish, they use it as punishment for younger children, or “corrective habits” is what they are saying. So, there’s many various explanation why they use it that we might be utilizing it, once more for, like, the mind tumors and different issues. However for them, it’s actually additionally to take away dangerous energies. So, that’s their reasoning and that’s why it was used perpetually till Peter Gorman was capable of carry over a pattern within the…most likely I feel just like the early ’90s is when he lastly was capable of carry it over. However he’d been speaking to individuals about it for the reason that ’80s and so they couldn’t get it over there.

Katie: Wow. I can vouch for most likely it being nice for searching. I haven’t gone searching after doing Kambo, however I’ve sat outdoors after darkish and heard one thing transfer in a tree and it was like I instantly might determine the place it was. I might see it. I might hear it. Like, it does heighten I really feel like loads of your senses for a very long time after doing Kambo. And what can be among the causes you’d say individuals do it now extra on the Western world or the individuals come to you for Kambo? What are among the, sort of, recurring causes you hear from individuals?

Todd: Yeah, and that’s utterly full-spectrum too, which is what’s actually thrilling. I imply, we get people who find themselves simply coming off of most cancers or coming off of chemo and so they wish to detox their physique correctly, make them really feel higher. So we’ll do it for that. Now we have it for thyroid. Now we have it for hypothyroidism as a result of there’s peptides which can be confirmed to manage the pituitary and adrenal glands, which is why there are precise advantages to it. Individuals do it for ache. They’re doing it…On the scientific degree, I suppose, and bodily degree, persons are doing it for like…, there’s peptides which can be confirmed to kill candida, parasites, fungi. It’s used as…dermaseptin is without doubt one of the strongest antivirals that they’ve ever discovered and it comes from the Kambo frog. Individuals are doing it for Lyme illness. They’re doing it for autoimmune illnesses, IBS. And the entire well being factor, I feel, you already know, once more, I don’t say this flippantly, however you could possibly at all times discover a purpose why somebody may gain advantage from it.

After which you might have…Like, we’ve just lately…One in every of our focus has been with, like, addictions. Now there’s precise peptides which can be proven to manage components of our physique that may assist with dependancy. So we’re utilizing it, we simply, you already know…you already know the story. We had somebody who was coming off of a heroin dependancy of just about 16 years, not a single day with out it. After which introduced on the fentanyl and methadone. Kambo, we had her right here for every week. And now, this isn’t one thing, you already know, that you simply loosely do. There’s quite a bit…We had an incredible help staff right here with us. However we have been capable of assist her along with her dependancy. She’s over two-and-a-half months sober proper now. And we’ve additionally had some…She got here, she was from New Mexico. We had somebody just lately who was coming off of opioid addictions too that stayed for a couple of days and it actually helped. So there’s additionally that. It’s very highly effective.

After which it goes again to, like, the intention stuff. So, I imply, the those who we see, we see optimum prime athletes, after which we see the essential mom. We see the yogis. We see everybody, you already know, that what they need it for, it may be simply to have some extra self-power, some confidence, which can be extraordinarily highly effective. You’re gonna…Like, it’s simply you stroll round with pep in your step after you’ve carried out Kambo. And the primary day, we at all times see persons are a bit tough however we at all times get a textual content from the following morning and be like, “Oh my gosh, scorching diggity canine, I’m out strolling within the sunshine. The sky’s by no means been so blue, and the birds are stunning,” and all the things. So, it truly is full-spectrum as to, like, what persons are coming, what kind of persons are coming to see us. They’re like, individuals you wouldn’t anticipate, you already know, once more, enterprise executives and full circle.

Katie: And I feel one other vital level to focus on is, possibly the rationale that is such an efficient detox is that it’s working with the physique’s pure detox pathways. I see loads of issues marketed as detox or cleanses. And a few of them I really feel are literally harmful or not supportive as a result of they will overload the physique’s system, however I really feel like simply how possibly an infrared sauna can be or fasting, this very a lot works with the physique’s detox pathways that exist already and simply helps them or hurries up the method versus it’s not doing one thing unnatural. It’s sort of simply activating the physique’s pure responses, is that proper?

Todd: Yeah, it goes proper again to, like as you stated, the lock and key. It really works as homeostasis with our our bodies. So, it’s sort of giving it a kick within the rear finish to assist all the things that it will possibly already do. Nothing is working towards the grain. And also you’re eradicating all the things fairly successfully. So it’s not like if you happen to’re doing another kind of liver cleanse which will have some pushback and we now have a stronger hertz response, this positively simply works with the physique. Our physique actually simply thinks it’s the pure manner. It doesn’t cease any manufacturing and simply goes, “Okay, these are, once more, bioactive peptides, our our bodies produce these anyhow.” It’s simply, float to take away all the things.

Katie: And likewise, I feel anytime we’re speaking about even one thing that’s naturally supportive, it’s vital to outline who can do it, who shouldn’t do it, sort of, the protection elements of simply individuals figuring out when it will be a good suggestion versus when it might not be a good suggestion. So, what are a few of these basic security pointers with regards to Kambo?

Todd: It’s an incredible query. And also you’re gonna get a lot of completely different solutions with that, like, via…I’ve been correctly intensively skilled to this, and you could possibly go to 1 individual, and so they might need a unique concept with this. And once more, I’m very on the scientific facet of this. And there are some considerations. So, like, if in case you have a lot of seizures, you wish to be with somebody who’s comfy…a practitioner who’s skilled and comfy with you doing seizures as a result of if there may be simply an opportunity that you’ve a seizure whereas doing Kambo as a result of it will possibly activate, once more, different issues taking place, the individual may not be capable of know what to do with you and put you in your facet as a result of in any other case you’re throwing up and also you’re backwards, identical to the rest. , if you happen to’ve had mind aneurysms, that might be a priority for me.

The underside line actually is in case you are cleared, if you happen to’re medically cleared to have the ability to do a 20 to 25-minute high-intensity cardiovascular exercise, Kambo, basically, can be protected for you. Once more, there’s such little small issues. For those who’ve been taking sure different sorts of medicines, more often than not you simply have to cease them for the day. However there are different actually, like, in case you are on…which is definitely sort of uncommon however if you happen to’re really on blood strain remedy, particularly if you happen to’re on low blood strain remedy or if you happen to’re on hypertension remedy, it drops your blood strain so low. After which if you happen to do Kambo, which you’ll have further blood strain lowage, it’ll actually make you cross out, which isn’t…I imply, individuals cross out anyhow, just for a couple of seconds, they arrive again.

However if in case you have any considerations, that’s who you’d wish to communicate together with your practitioner and see what they’re really comfy with as a result of individuals have been skilled. And clearly, it’s essential that you simply go to an precise licensed and skilled practitioner as a result of there’s a utterly completely different normal and degree of training and expertise of what they’ve. And any of the…the caveat, if you happen to go on and google Kambo proper now, you’re gonna most likely see fairly a couple of catastrophe tales and so they’ve all been with uncertified practitioners. And principally it’s as a result of they drank an excessive amount of water and so they get hyponatremia and that’s the hazard. I imply, that’s the hazard with Kambo is consuming manner an excessive amount of water and getting out your electrolyte stability. However basically, although, I imply, I’ve actually by no means needed to say no to anybody as a result of, once more, I really feel comfy with what they’ve instructed me, what’s happening. Within the lots of and lots of of individuals, I’ve by no means actually had any dangerous experiences.

Katie: After which for lots of the mothers listening, the one, I do know, occasion when it’s not allowed in any respect is whenever you’re pregnant or there’s an opportunity you’re pregnant.

Todd: Thanks. Yeah, I forgot that half. However sure, so you don’t wanna do it when pregnant mainly as a result of it will possibly induce labor due to all the sleek muscle contractions and all the things which can be taking place, they are saying that that’s positively not…that’s ultimate to…you don’t wanna do it at any level throughout, after which most likely, like, possibly after breastfeeding too as a result of it’s possible you’ll get…There isn’t any like, hey, this occurred earlier than, however their considerations theoretically can be is it might get into your breastmilk.

Katie: Like, it will possibly mobilize too many toxins after which switch to child mainly.

Todd: So, that’s a theoretical concern that I’d align with however there’s no science behind that. However I’d agree.

Katie: Okay.

I do know one other query we’re most likely gonna get if we don’t handle it’s, how do they get the secretions from the frog, and does it damage the frog? Are there any, sort of, considerations for the frog on this?

Todd: Yeah, that’s an incredible query. And that’s a really nice concern to have. I get my Kambo instantly from a gentleman who harvests it himself. He’s from the Amazon after which a couple of instances of the 12 months he’ll come out into Florida and that’s who I now buy mine from and he videotapes it. So, for me, I’m very clear, I’m very conscious of the place my Kambo comes from, and the way it’s sustainably harvested with love. And it’s such a cool video to observe when he does these in the course of the night time. And it’s important to do it at night time as a result of the frog is nocturnal. The priority actually…once more, it’s a really justified concern is, are they harming the animal? Are they abusing the frog? Are they stressing it out? As a result of, after all, it’s a stress response from the frog. From my expertise and all the things I’ve seen, primarily it’s the shamans within the Amazon. There’s only some individuals, a couple of tribes who…I imagine there’s solely seven tribes which can be even allowed to reap the frog and contact the frog. They usually do it with a lot of most respect and love as a result of they perceive the facility of this drugs.

So what they do is that they seize the frog, they will name to it, they really name to the frog and the frogs come to them in order that they’re not trying to find it, which additionally exhibits for essentially the most half, if the frog is aware of they’re gonna get harmed as a result of they do that constantly via the frog’s life. They’ll dwell to be 15 years outdated. So what they do is that they name the frogs, the frogs come to them, after which they’ll strap the frogs, and so they tickle them with a stick and it’ll launch the secretion. After which they pull off they are saying mainly the primary 20% or 30% of the frog secretion in order that it nonetheless has loads of its personal simply to maintain itself protected. After which they placed on the stick after which it will get transferred to whoever’s gonna buy it. , it goes via a couple of individuals’s arms. However then they mark the frog in order that they know to not get that frog once more for one more 12 months.

So, that’s the perfect story of all the things. However I’m certain, you already know, sadly, identical to with something that occurs, there are most likely individuals who don’t have the perfect curiosity within the frog. The nice factor although is that if the frog is definitely overly harmed or pressured, it really secretes extra blood out of it. So that you’d be getting pink Kambo, mainly. And nobody’s gonna buy that, at the very least in the event that they’re educated in that, like, in order that they’re mainly losing the product in the event that they’re harming the frog. And that doesn’t imply that it, sadly, doesn’t occur in some locations. However once more, it’s a query it’s best to at all times ask your practitioner is, how do you supply it? As a result of hopefully, they’re not shopping for it simply on-line someplace randomly.

Like, there are…If you’re a licensed practitioner, you might have a direct connection that’s given to you who which you could buy your Kambo sticks from, which these are actually good as a result of these are monitored and other people know precisely the place they’re coming from and so they’ve been utilizing them for perpetually. However I personally select a gentleman who I adopted on Instagram for fairly a while and get to observe how he does all the things. And he’s an incredible educator and I like the stuff he does. So I purchase from him as a result of I get to observe the movies of when he’s harvesting it.

Katie: And likewise, I feel it’s vital to notice that they solely make this within the wild, proper, from what you’ve instructed me. So, they might not be raised in captivity in dangerous situations and used to reap as a result of they wouldn’t be making the identical secretions. Is that proper?

Todd: Right. So the pharmaceutical firms have tried to hop in on this as a result of, once more, there’s so many peptides for ache, like we stated in dermaseptin, the antiviral. And I imagine there’s over 70 patents that they’ve tried to create with the Kambo peptides. However the issue is the frog doesn’t launch the secretion as soon as it’s out of its factor. So, the frogs solely launch the secretion in the event that they’re within the jungle and it wouldn’t be sustainable, clearly, on a pharmaceutical degree of how they do it so. They usually’re not allowed to, once more…there’s solely I imagine it’s seven tribes which can be actually allowed to do that. And likewise simply on that word, Kambo is 100% authorized worldwide. , there’s nothing anyplace…You possibly can have it with you. There’s nothing about having it shipped to you or utilizing it as a result of it’s not a psychedelic. There’s no mind-altering points to it. So, worldwide Kambo is authorized.

Katie: That was gonna be one in all my follow-up questions for you is, yeah, is it protected and authorized to do in all 50 states and world wide, and it’s. However to your level, ensure you know your practitioner or quiz them very effectively and also you verify on issues just like the sourcing and their coaching, these would all be vital issues. Identical to with our meals provide, we wanna know the place it comes from and ensure animals weren’t handled and be like…, these are all considerations I’d have with meals. So to me, that is only a continuation of creating certain that something that goes in your physique is sourced effectively. One other factor that you simply do in the course of the Kambo ceremony that I needed to verify we touched on briefly, is the attention drops typically after the ceremony, which I do know are optionally available earlier than we begin speaking about them. And I’ll describe it as a bit little bit of a sense of possibly, like, a blowtorch via the eyeballs and into the mind for a minute. I might not be the perfect salesperson for that. However clarify what the purpose of the drops is.

Todd: Sure, so Sananga is the title of it. And completely different instances individuals can do it throughout which I can’t imagine that I’d by no means need Sananga. Like, whenever you’re already nauseous and having Kambo expertise, I personally wouldn’t need Sananga however I do know why they do at some factors. So, basically, it’s utterly optionally available to do it put up. And it’s eye drops, and I say it’s mainly like placing…it was like being pepper sprayed in a manner or jalapeno or habanero sauce in your eyeball. So it’s an excellent…It may be one to 5 minutes of maximum discomfort of, like, as if you happen to had actually simply put pepper sauce in your eyes. It’s very intense. I at all times work with individuals with breathwork. And it helps them. It positively doesn’t make it sunshine and rainbows but it surely actually helps. And so it comes from the Ibogaine plant. And it has tons of advantages for antimicrobial, antibacterial, so cleans out your eyes, and it helps with irritation within the eyeballs.

We see it over and over the place individuals can have main imaginative and prescient points and never, like, long-term outcomes, but it surely helps them. We’ve had people who find themselves of their mid-50s who haven’t been on the drive at night time with out glasses, and now can as a result of they will see higher after utilizing Sananga. And we now have somebody who hasn’t been capable of…a mutual buddy of ours who can’t learn textual content messages. And after doing Kambo, after which some Sananga, they’re capable of learn their textual content messages. And that’s tremendous highly effective. And once more, there’s no science, actually deep science, but it surely’s like you may’t ignore that. Now, it’s additionally an incredible alternative, I see it the place…I’ve by no means used it throughout a ceremony. I’ve used it after. If somebody can’t purge, it tends to be as a result of they’re an excessive controller too. In order that they don’t wanna throw up subconsciously. However whenever you give them Sananga, their physique will get so distracted by the Sananga that they lastly are capable of launch what they have been holding on to.

So we’ve carried out Sananga after which persons are simply…They go into these deep emotional releases and so they’re crying, you already know, and it’s not from the ache, that’s over. It’s lastly they’re permitting their physique to launch it. And on that time actually quick as a result of I did miss this however I feel one of the vital highly effective issues of Kambo is that it’s a pressured catharsisism. So, it forces you…after we’re going into why it’s actually good for traumas is it actually helps you bodily launch trauma. It provides you that bodily response you’d have of, like, a very arduous cry and eventually you may launch it, even if in case you have an emotional launch already of one thing that’s occurred that you simply’ve forgiven, your physique nonetheless holds on to these traumas. And I really feel the Kambo could be very highly effective with that releasing, sort of, going with the Sananga on the finish. If somebody doesn’t throw up, all we may give is Sananga and have a greater likelihood of releasing that as a result of they’re not so targeted on not purging.

Katie: Yeah, such as you, I positively have a tendency in the direction of the scientific facet and I resisted the psychological and emotional facet for a very long time after my trauma. And I’ve talked about that a bit bit on this podcast earlier than. However that’s one thing I’ve realized very a lot the previous few years is that mind-body connection is so sturdy and that emotional connection. And typically we have to do the emotional work to assist the physique launch. However typically we do use the physique to assist the feelings launch too. And that was the important thing I had ignored for a very long time was the, sort of, somatic facet of that. And thru completely different sorts of bodywork, via issues like Kambo I really feel like I used to be capable of nearly, like, mobilize the locations my physique had saved trauma after which really course of them emotionally. Whereas I couldn’t even, like, sort of, get to them. Prefer to your level, I used to be holding on to these issues till my physique knew find out how to let go. And so it’s like a each/and, not an both/or.

Todd: Yeah, “Psychedelic Occasions” wrote an article about Kambo and in regards to the energy of utilizing it for grief and, like, demise of a cherished one or after an intense lengthy relationship, if you happen to’ve gotten out of that whether or not it’s a friendship or romantic relationship and utilizing it. And it’s all due to pressured catharsisism and the facility of releasing it.

Katie: It’s superb. Yeah, I positively have personally felt it. And only a shaggy dog story associated to Sananga, the primary time I did Kambo, I noticed a buddy do Sananga and I knew how sturdy his ache tolerance was, after which whenever you have been like, “Do you wanna do it?” I used to be like, “Nope, I’m good. I don’t suppose I wanna try this.” After which I felt dangerous as a result of I didn’t strive it. And so a couple of days later, whenever you have been round, I used to be like, “Okay, I’ll simply do Sananga by itself.” And it was in my yard. I feel many of the children within the neighborhood have been there. And I screamed a foul phrase very loudly, unintentionally, when it hit my eyes, and felt actually dangerous. I had apologize to the youngsters. However it’s a positively uncomfortable expertise but it surely was superb after, each how vivid I noticed all the things and likewise how vivid individuals’s eyes look externally after Sananga. It’s nearly like, I really feel like, placing a Photoshop filter in your eyes for a couple of weeks. They’re simply so shiny and vivid. And that is smart whenever you speak about the way it, sort of, cleanse the attention, it helps the attention work higher, mainly.

Todd: My eye colours have modified solely. So, which we’ve seen via a couple of of the individuals right here within the circle, however my eyes have been brown. My driver’s license says brown eyes. And if you happen to take a look at it now, you’re like, “No they’re inexperienced, Todd.” Like, from brown to inexperienced, very, very apparent too, which is so…And that I feel has quite a bit to do with possibly some detoxing from Kambo and the Sananga. Like, once more, that’s not one thing I do know quite a bit about however I’ve learn quite a bit about eye shade and if in case you have various things will also be heavy metals or something that’s being held in our eye, however I don’t know any science behind that. However my eyes have utterly modified from darkish brown to a pleasant inexperienced. So…

Katie: Attention-grabbing. Properly, and I’m guessing there’s lots of people listening now who’re questioning, “Okay, how can I do this now that, for some purpose, I’m compelled to do that factor that’s gonna make me throw up and burn my eyeballs? How do I do it?” And such as you identified, it’s clearly essential to know who you’re doing it with and ensure the sourcing is nice and ensure the practitioner is aware of what they’re doing. For you personally, if individuals needed to succeed in out, how can they discover out extra and/or strive Kambo?

Todd: Yeah. So, for certain, just be sure you discover a skilled licensed practitioner. And there’s no query about that. Please don’t ever…It’s not gonna be manner cheaper to go one other route and it’s not price it simply because the training and the precise depth of security which can be skilled via it’s not comparable. So, my web site is sunpiperwellness.com. So sunpiperwellness.com. You possibly can go onto my web site. And I’ve all of our issues we do for Kambo on there. We journey. So Jill and I journey, which is…I imply, that’s how we met you, Katie, is we lived in San Francisco. And with COVID taking place, the pandemic, we couldn’t work. So we began touring across the nation realizing that that is what individuals want. They want it for the nervousness, the despair, and the antiviral facet.

So we began touring round, which is what we nonetheless do. We journey throughout, anyplace just about within the nation as a result of we get pleasure from driving collectively. It’s fairly enjoyable. So, like, this summer time for all of June and a few into July, we’re gonna be all the East Coast. We’re mainly stationed right here within the panhandle of Florida. We’ll journey anyplace. However we additionally on most of our weekends, we now have individuals flying out to us and we do, like, three-day retreats. So it’s Kambo, in addition to vitamin, and yoga, and circadian rhythm resets, we do all of that. You possibly can observe me on Instagram, it’s Biohacker Todd, and you may ask me any questions on there, and if you happen to wanna arrange any schedules.

However that being stated, if you happen to dwell too far-off, or it’s not gonna work that I get to work with you, there are web sites you may go to love Kambo Worldwide. After which there’s…which it’s a world-known, revered group which you could kind in your zip code and so they’ll discover licensed practitioners for you. And if there’s somebody nonetheless not in your space, you might be welcome to succeed in out to me as a result of there are those who aren’t even on that that I do know are nonetheless licensed and skilled that we might discover for you. And once more, you are able to do that via Instagram or simply happening to the web site, however we’ll discover a practitioner near you if you happen to’re . However utilizing Kambo Worldwide ought to make it easier to too if you happen to’re not wanting to attend round.

Katie: Excellent. I’ll be sure these are linked at wellnessmama.fm within the present notes. You guys can discover it.
