Native History of Kambo

There is a Kaxinawa legend from Brazil, that tells of the Natives from a village falling very, very ill and the medicine man, Paje’, had tried everything possible to heal them. All medicinal herbs known were used but none would help his people. So, Paje’ decided to enter the forest, and under the effects of a sacred plant medicine, he received a visit from a female spirit of the forest, she brought in her hands a large green frog, from which she took a white milky secretion and taught Paje’ how to use it.  Returning to the tribe and following the vision that he had received, Paje’ was able to cure his people.  After his death, the tribe believed that his spirit passed into the frog and they began to use its secretion to stay active, healthy, and strong!       Viva Kambo!
