Reset.me spoke to Troy Casey of Certified Health Nut, who shared his experience of receiving kambô:
“Once applied to the holes in the skin, kambô makes its way through the lymphatic system. The lymph is effectively a body of fluid with no organs to pump it, it relies upon movements of the body in areas such as the diaphragm, pelvic floor and transverse abdominal. Lymph movement is crucial to health, a stagnant body of water becomes a cesspool. Kambô assists in the detoxification of this bodily system…
“Within about 15 minutes there is a purging effect. I felt it in my throat, face, head and nasal passages. This was followed by vomiting and the evacuation of my colon. The effects come on extremely quickly and powerfully. During the following week, I felt as though my energy cleared up. I felt so much more energetic and auto-immune symptoms that I had been experiencing due to a black mold infestation, such as adrenal exhaustion, improved.
“Drastic times call for drastic measures. Kambô is drastic but extremely effective. It works with the lymph and nervous system as well as the hormones.”
