What is Kambo?

Kambo is a extraordinary secretion used by the Amazonian tribes for thousands of years. The scientific name of the frog is Phyllomedusa Bicolor, meaning two-colored leaf gaurdian, also known as the giant monkey tree frog. It is legal in the US and all other countries. It is a deep cleansing therapy that works on all levels – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Kambo is considered the Vaccine of the Forest for its ability to strengthen and revitalize our whole being. Kambo catalyzes deep healing and understanding by bringing issues to the surface to be released.

Kambo Science

Kambo contains a unique and complex blend of bioactive peptides that trigger positive chemical reactions within the body that are crucial to the health, growth and repair of our systems.   It cleanses and detoxifies the liver, intestines and skin and has potent anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. Kambo is one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found in the world and offers an alternative approach to empower the immune system. The peptides in Kambo are potent blood vessel dilators, which allows it to cross the blood brain barrier enabling it to reach deep into the body and bring lasting support.


Kambo Frog Spirit

“Kambo circulates in the heart. When we take Kambo it makes the heart move accurately so things may flow more naturally .” ( Kaxinawa elder) The spirit of the frog reminds us to keep jumping forward on our paths, helping us to cleanse, renew and nurture ourselves. The universal symbol of embracing personal power, Frog asks us to trust, allow and surrender.  Kambo aids in removing what does not serve you.  It helps bring you back to your natural state of harmony and balance.


Kambo Treatment

Kambo is known as an “ordeal” medicine. It is intense but fast, the unpleasant effects are strong and immediate, lasting only 20-30 min. Points are placed onto the surface of the skin with a small stick that is heated — the top layer of skin is blistered and Kambo is applied. The medicine instantly enters the Lymphatic system. Kambo initiates the release of built-up toxins from the vital organs. The innate spirit of Kambo is very intelligent;  it has its own unique way of breaking through blockages and dis-ease. Each and every treatment with Kambo will be different, and each time will reveal new perceptions, insights and deeper healing. According to the Indigenous Tribes:  When things are not going right in your life, it is the right time to take Kambo.


About Keidren

Early in my life, I realized holding space for others’ healing came naturally to me, and was a gift I needed to share and offer to others…
In 2013, I ventured to the Sacred Valley of Peru, where I worked with Kambo for the first time. My initial experience was profound and inspired me to continue working with it over the following months.   I felt a deep resonance with the spirit of the frog.  I intuitively knew that the sacred medicine of Kambo would both support my personal journey and be an important part of my life calling…
I am a trained and certified practitioner of the International Association Of Kambo Practioners (IAKP), a Health and Lifestyle Intuitive Coach, and a Professional Artist of 15 yrs. Read More

Keidren helped me through my first 3×3 Warrior Initiation with Kambo. At all times she was fully present, holding space, and guiding me along through my process. She has a strong yet caring energy which made me feel safe at all times. I’m honored to have recieved Kambo from Keidren, I would highly recommend her as a practitioner.

Michelle, 32, FL

Keidren is a gifted healer. I felt so safe & comfortable with her as my Practitioner. I was quite nervous to do a Kambo ear treatment but Keidren far exceeded my expectations and put my nerves at ease.  She thoroughly explained what to expect before sitting with the medicine and was very loving with the aftercare and follow up…Thank you for taking me through my process, for gently guiding me with your intuition during my experience and helping me find my own strength that was waiting to be discovered. Thank you Keidren, for being such a huge part of an experience that has changed my life forever.

I highly recommend Keidren Devas as a facilitator of the  Kambo journey.  I had a great experience and found her to be highly knowledgeable, fully present and extremely helpful.  It feels right to do this journey with someone who has really done her own personal exploration, and is so open and clear.

Ashley, 32, WA

“I cannot thank Keidren enough for the guidance and support she gave me throughout the 3 day series of kambo treatments. I cannot imagine a better practitioner to dive into this medicine with as she embodies the perfect balance of both strength and nurturing. Keidren is the “real deal” and a very gifted healer who has walked the path and done the deep inner work. I knew the moment we met eyes that I had come to the perfect place. There was total clarity in both her words and actions, and I felt completely safe and supported in her presence at all times. I feel immense gratitude for the profound shift that has occurred in me, and I feel incredibly strong and at peace in mind, body and spirit. Thank you Keidren for doing this amazing work, the world needs this medicine of the heart!”

Josh, 39, WA

I have been working with Keidren and the medicine kambo for a couple months now. I had 6 ruptured discs and half my back in atrophy. After 5 ceremonies, the pain in back is gone and I feel like I’m 18 again. My body feels lighter and works with much more efficient after each ceremony. The closest I can come to describing working with Keidren and this medicine is on the verge of magical. I feel that Keidren is very highly in touch with the medicine and knows exactly how much to use to push me exactly where I need to go. Her presence in the ceremonies made even a hardened client like me willing to surrender to the medicine for deep detox and healing. I truly recommend to everyone to work with the amazing medicine kambo and the gifted Keidren to help heal yourself!

Carl, 35, WA

Kambo has helped me greatly with its anti inflammatory properties and many other things, some of which I can’t fully explain yet. I tried not doing Kambo for a couple months and thats partly when I realized how much kambo helps me. I’m like a completely different person when I do it. Now I can’t imagine not doing kambo every month. Its helped me a lot to heal from a protozoa infection, both in treating the protozoa and helping with the symptoms of it. Plus Keidren is awesome! She’s very professional and makes the sometimes unpleasantness of doing kambo much easier. Keidren is very knowledgeable about Kambo and many other healing plants and treatments. She’s always fast to respond to emails and I trust her recommendations. She’s been an amazing resource for me and I highly recommend you see her!

Liz, 65, WA

As a Shamanic Practitioner myself, I was happy to discover this modality.  My experience with Keidren and the Kambo was a physically challenging treatment for me, but since then I have experienced a wonderful shift..the shift I was looking for in terms of how I relate to my physical self, the level of conscious awareness, as well as letting go of some blocks held in my mental and emotional body.  I am very grateful for Keidren and for Kambo! I have recommended this treatment to many of my clients, and I look forward to doing it again myself!    

Gui, 68, WA

I felt called to Kambo for healing, and I decided to try it.   I was a little anxious, but Keidren put me at ease immediately with her confident and caring ways.  From the time you walk through the door you will know you are at the right place with the right person.   She is with you completely through the process.  I felt I was OK, no matter how hard it got because Keidren says the right thing at the right time and is completely clear about everything that will happen.  My points were perfectly placed, with care and consideration.  Keidren is an angel, healer, artist and a totally beautiful person, inside and out.  This experience was way beyond what I thought it would be.  This is unquestionably where you want to go and whom you want to be with, when you take Kambo!

Sean, 43, WA

I was lucky to work with Kambo for the first time under the steady and compassionate guidance of Keidren.  I was at a point in my life where there was a general state of static upheaval- the midlife crisis, if you will.  I felt called to Kambo to genuinely work through some distinct physiological and psychological blockages that I felt were restraining me from higher potentialities. The medicine itself is really something- cleansing, potent, humbling-and you really need an ally as aware and as strong as Keidren to midwife you through such a rewarding experience.  We worked together for 3 sessions in a lunar cycle, and its no coincidence that major breakthroughs in my life occurred during that time. My health exponentially got better, my internal stories changed, and I had the clarity to make some big decisions and move forward in my life in ways I never fathomed.  I would absolutely recommend Keidren as someone who provides a safe, sacred space and unwavering support as you journey with this medicine.  Because Keidren is such a consummate professional and innately gifted as a healer, it was easy to be courageous with myself during our sessions, and I'm eternally grateful!

Nancy, 61, OR

My Kambo session welcomed me to become grounded, grow roots, and inhabit my body.  I allowed my true innate power to return, to naturally again flow and be expressed through me, and to be used with discernment.  Keidren represented a rare ability to be honest, compassionate, and fully present while holding safe and sacred space for difficult healing work.  She was calm and had a plan, she was clearly open to spirit as she navigated and supported my healing.  She seems to know when to provide encouragement and when to silently reflect my courage and strength. Keidren was clearly connected to the deep spirit of Kambo and was perfectly guided in the amount and timing of the medicine given.  Through my treatments I was able to achieve full embodiment and grounding within my whole being, which were vital for me to reclaim and embrace my life's purpose without feeling anymore resistance.  Thank you Kambo and thank you Keidren for the healing support!  

Sascha, 43, WA

After months of debilitating depression and PTSD, I sought out Keidren when a friend and regular of hers suggested I give Kambo a try.  It is difficult to put my 3 days of Kambo ceremony into words, but as I had hoped it was a very powerful and healing medicine on a variety of levels.  Relief came especially in helping to lift the 'Panema' I was experiencing, in being able to finally move through and out of my trauma, opening my heart up and learning to be more accepting and kind to myself.  I was also able to break through some personal barriers around feeling stuck and was then able to move forward with grace and towards a more clear life path and direction.  The following weeks provided me with continued introspection and therapeutic benefits.  Keidren herself is an incredibly intuitive healer and an absolute gem.  The way in which she holds space and guides you through the Kambo ceremony is so gentle and comforting yet with a strong and intentional presence that is very grounding and reassuring.  One of my favorite parts during the most intense moments of the ceremony was listening to her sing and drum beautifully.   Each time this would bring me back from a place of darkness and despair and into the return of bright loving light and positivity.  She has a deep understanding, respect and reverence for the medicine and tribes of the Amazon, which I greatly appreciated.  I will undoubtedly return to see her for future Kambo ceremonies and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking this righteous modality of medicine and healing.

Keidren is a skilled and powerful healer.  She recently facilitated a Kambo journey for me and the experience was deeply transformative.  Kambo is not and easy medicine, but can be a potent ally in transformational work across all dimensions of being, if engaged with and held properly.  I came to Keidren seeking transformative healing and I was given more than I had hoped possible with one session.  I felt held, safe, and seen through the entire process from intake through integration.  She gave me a thorough initial consultation during which I felt proficiently educated on Kambo and personally engaged with to determine if this truly was the right fit for me.  She again provided ample time in person prior to beginning the treatment to continue education of what to expect and establish a trusting relationship with me.  She then called in a powerful energetic container and moved forward with meticulous care and reverence for my body, my spirit, and the medicine.  I have been seeking to heal from substantial emotional and physical trauma and it was not long before I was purging more intensely than I had in any other medicine experience prior.  She tenderly encouraged me through the entire process.  I never felt pushed to go deeper at any point, but rather a profound relief and trust as she supported the release of deep pain and toxicity at the core of my being.  For anyone seeking medicine work to support fundamental transformation, I cannot recommend Keidren more.  She is a sweet, loving, powerful soul and a gifted medicine woman.

Katherine, 33, WA

I had never received Kambo before, but as I was trying to conceive, I got an intuitive sense that this medicine would help me prepare for pregnancy.  I later heard from Keidren that Kambo is renowned for promoting fertility in women and men!  Less that 2 months after my treatment I became pregnant.  I recommend it to couples wanting to bring in new life, as it also cleanses the system, boosts immunity and lends courage.
