Kambo Research

Below is an archive of the relevant published scientific articles which reference Kambo, its usage and bio-active properties or one of the peptides contained in the Kambo secretion. We present this information to ensure that we maintain up-to-date with current findings and for those who wish to understand our practices from a more scientific perspective. For tailored treatment sessions, we may also refer to treatment/proceedure/protocols where we have given consideration to previous research. The below section of articles have been presented as relevant by our own researcher Daniel, who is contributing to published research through our practices.
