Nature's Medicines

Ancestral Medicines
Whether it be for physical, mental or spiritual ailments, Mother Earth provides all the healing we need.

Throughout history, indigenous people have known about the great healing power in ancestral medicines.

Ancestral medicines like el sapo and kambo have been used for centuries by indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest for their healing properties.

El sapo, also known as Bufo Alvarius or the Colorado River toad, secretes a potent psychoactive compound called 5-MeO-DMT. The secretion is traditionally used by indigenous communities in Mexico and other parts of Central and South America for spiritual and medicinal purposes, including treating depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Kambo, on the other hand, is a secretion from the skin of the Phyllomedusa bicolor frog, also known as the giant leaf frog or monkey frog. The secretion contains peptides that are believed to have potent healing properties and is typically applied to the skin through small burns or incisions. Kambo is traditionally used to treat a variety of ailments, including pain, inflammation, infections, and depression.

It's worth noting that the use of these medicines is not without risk and should only be undertaken under the guidance of an experienced practitioner. Potential side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and in some cases, more severe reactions like allergic reactions or cardiovascular issues. Additionally, because these medicines are psychoactive, they can be potentially dangerous for people with certain pre-existing conditions, such as a history of psychosis or certain heart conditions.

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of ancestral medicines like el sapo and kambo in Western societies. However, it's important to approach these medicines with respect and caution, and to only seek out practitioners who are trained and experienced in their use.
