Sapo (Kambo) Session

Sapo is considered an ‘ordeal’ medicine. This means that your experience within the Sapo cleanse will most likely be a purification and may not be easy. Once the Sapo is applied to the skin, a feeling of warmth immediately follows. The immediate effects of Sapo are intense and unpleasant but short-lived, usually lasting no more than 30-40 minutes. You will begin to feel the effects within 10 seconds. This may include a feverish rise in temperature, sweating, shivers, and dizziness as the heart rate becomes rapid—possibly reaching more than 190 beats per minute. The blood pressure may rise or fall dramatically, accompanied by an increased awareness of the veins and arteries. Relax into the experience. Many people report a tingling or burning sensation like electricity that spreads through the body. Some may also feel a dissociative or drunken high.  It is helpful to work with the breath: Inhale and receive the medicine with love and trust, exhale and surrender. It is a common experience that the throat will gently swell. This is normal. It will not swell shut.

Overwhelming nausea is a common experience with Sapo and purging is likely—either by vomiting, defecation, or both. Other effects include a feeling of pressure in the head, neck, and torso, stomach pain, inflammation of the throat, dry mouth, blurred vision (or temporary blindness), difficulty moving, and numb, swollen lips and tongue.

After 15 minutes, the medicine will be removed from your body and the intensity of the experience will begin to subside. Many people report feeling very peaceful immediately after the treatment and often the next day.

Your experience may feel enhanced following the purge. You may feel great physical strength, sharpened senses, and heightened mental alertness. Desirable after-effects like these may take a day to materialize or they could be immediate. They also tend to include a consistently elevated mood, increased physical and mental energy, decreased stress, and enhanced focus
