A venomous frog’s secretions are injected into your body as part of the ancient Amazonian rite known as kambo, which is meant to have cleansing and health-improving effects.

Kambo has long been a contentious cleaning ritual due to the severe side effects of coming into direct touch with the venom of the giant monkey frog, which is extracted from the backs of the species of giant monkey frogs that are found throughout the Amazon.

Due to Australia’s probe into the deaths of two unconnected people who had passed away shortly after attempting kambo, the topic has lately risen to new heights. Although kambo symptoms might range in intensity, they can occasionally be fatal or seriously detrimental to health.

The Amazonian natives have been using the shamanic ceremony known as kambo for millennia to cure and purify the body, and naturopathic doctors have endorsed it for its purifying properties.

However, kambo can be quite harsh, unlike other, more gentle ways of purging the body. The ritual can also cause stomach pain, dizziness, heart palpitations, loss of bladder control, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea.
