a kambô treatment

Mindful living.

Support your mind, body and soul prior to your treatment, kambô will be much easier on you when you live mindfully prior to the experience.

On the day of your treatment it is recommended to avoid any unnecessary interactions like checking your email, social media or having anything fixed on your calendar. Allow yourself to integrate and give yourself a day off on the day of the treatment. Avoid any energy-draining activities.


Kambô treatment can be incredibly rejuvenating and centering experience as well as exhausting depending on your individual process and your toxin/emotional load.

Day of the treatment

Stay Hydrated. Make it a conscious effort to hydrate your body leading up to the ceremony. Do not sauna a few days prior and post kambo ceremony. The more hydrated your body is, the easier the process will be. Especially in Bali / Uluwatu area, people are easily dehydrated. Make sure that’s not you.


Intention. Allow your intention to arise in your heart, take note and bring it into the forefront of your consciousness. You can absolutely do some journaling, deep thinking and feeling into your intention to work with kambo.


No Cleansing, Water Fasts etc. Any cleansing protocols and water fasts, colonics DO NOT GO well with kambo. Kambo is a strong medicine. Please eat well, nourish your body days and weeks prior to the ceremony so your body can sit with the medicine and be strong! The stronger your body is the easier the purging process.


Guard Your Senses. Watch what you allow into both your body and Spirit. Watch your media consumption, the food you allow into your body, watch your habits.

Eat A Clean Well-balanced Diet. Your body will thank you during the kambo treatment. More above. Do not ingest alcohol, drugs, or bufo! No sleeping aids. Supplements - allow your body to rest before the ceremony and kambo to work it’s magic.

More information in the protocol sent out after booking a ceremony with me.

Fasting Do not eat 10-12 hrs prior to your kambo treatment. You can have some light herbal tea, water in this early am hours.

*Caffeine - if you must, make sure it’s at least 5 hrs prior to arriving at the ceremony.
