this is long version of my healing process, the other two posts, that give some more info are:http://kambo.me/smf/index.php?topic=45.0http://kambo.me/smf/index.php?topic=23.0
here is the longer 7 months report:
This is a report following these two threads I posted.
Since last May 2012 until October 2012 I have been using "strong" Kambo every Sunday. Latey I use "light" 3x month, and "strong" 1x month.
I call it "light" Kambo wich is no vomiting, and "strong" which is vomiting more then 5 times.
My condition has improved dramatically, and that was the reason for such intense usage:
1. I dropped my prescription sleeping medication to half.
2. I don't have head ackes.
3. My Irritable bowl syndrome is almost gone.
4. I have energy to go through a day.
I will continue to use Kambo until I feel I am like the rest of normal people.
One of the biggest challenges is sleep.
Last few weeks I did Aya only, or caapi only brew 100g, for three consecutive fridays. Something interesting is happening: I WAS NAPPING!!!!!! I haven't sleep at night without sleeping aid for 25 years, let alone napping... I don't want to get too excited over it, but I am tapping onto something, and I will see how it will unfold.
In short first few months were very difficult. During the Kambo treatment I had terrible body and head pains. I had to take pain killers. Following day I would be wasted, couldn't do anything. Day 2,3 and 4 I would be better: from Kambo and from my CFS symptoms, yet they would be coming back again, what made me rush and do Kambo following Sunday.
This is in short form, and here is a large one:
I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia FM, in some countries is called myalgic encephalitis or ME.
The symptoms and improvements:
headaches - almost gone
sinus and throat irritation and infections - completely gone
lymphatic node pains - gone after 5 months of treatments
cold sweats - gone
joint pain - gone
irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) / diarrhea - two steps forward one back
blurry vision - gone
insomnia - from two prescription medication I take only one, this is a great improvement
muscle pain - gone
fatigue, or feeling of heaviness, I feel good until 7 pm ( this is not bad for me at all)
tongue coating - no heavy coating, but not good
memory problem - great for few days, only to slightly goes worst before next treatment
body odor - Kambo will take it out, In my case it represent how bad I am doing, and now don't have bad body odor.
Yet the symptoms recur, but it is not expected to disappear for all and good.
These are the improvements on specific symptoms, yet, I have started the treatments in May, when I was bed bound for a mont. Within two weeks I could get out of the bed thanks to Kambo, had in not been for Kambo, the way I know my body it will take me at least two months to feel better and get out of the bed.
First two months into the treatment I will feel lightheaded when getting up form the chair, so much that all will turn white, and sometimes I even had to hold a wall, or even to sit down again and the slowly get up. Now this almost doesn't happen.
I would say that I am 70 % better. My goal is to drop the sleep medication and have no IBS.
I used to do big burns, like dime seize, since it is easier to put the medicine on, they dont' cure nicely, but it is easy to apply the medicine. I do two on the leg, and two on the arm. I used to do close to the joint, but I started getting cracking, so I do it away from the knee or elbow.
I do it in the morning, and right before I apply the dose I stuff myself with salty water 1,5 L, so it is easy to vomit.
That day I don't eat, drink lemon water and coffee.
I feel pretty bad that day: strong headaches and body aches, on the light dose this gets better the following day, yet on the heavy dose I have to wait for 3 days to get better, I can't leave the house. I do take painkillers for the pain though.
Yet this is getting better too, at first the headaches on Kambo were excruciating, as well as the body pains, now 4 months in are getting much more bearable.
I have a lots of bowel pains on Kambo, and it seems that it is fundamental in getting better, for that reason I do it below my knee, and for esthetic purposes.
I will keep this tempo until I get more results in sleep pattern and in bowel movements.
This maybe doesn't seem impressive for general audience, but for me it has been the single thing that made the biggest difference, and gave me the security that at least I will not be in the bed for months on end, but with the hope to be more functional and close to normal human being.
My wish is that many people with my condition get the treatments and benefit, there is absolutely nothing for us, by conventional or alternative medicine.
We are practically living dead: and somehow this frog has so much to offer for us, how strange isn't it?
