What to expect during Kambo Ceremony?

The Kambo is applied onto small dots which are burned onto the top layer of the skin. This enables the medicine to enter the body. The frog secretion triggers chemical reactions in the body, causing the internal organs and intestines to purge toxins. The purging effects typically last between 10-20 minutes.  Once the medicine is removed, the body recovers quickly.
