I have taken a liking to rape', and find myself using it daily. I see where this is heading, I have never been addicted to nicotine, but have been addicted to other substances in the past. How long does it take before physical and mental addiction take hold? i.e. 1 week of daily use, 2 weeks etc.

Precautions / Lack of blood flow to the hands
« on: October 09, 2013, 09:17:08 am »
I have done kambo many times, and at one point my hands started turning orange and numb, and nowadays this happens every time I do it. My finger nails go purple so its pretty clear that theres a lack of blood flow to my hands. I'm wondering if this is an indication that something bad (i.e. a stroke) could happen if I do a more intense than usual kambo session.

Kambo & Other Sacraments / Galantamine
« on: August 25, 2013, 06:48:36 am »
This thread is about galantamine, which is a relatively safe alkaloid to experiment with, but I added a bit of information on the calabar bean (an extremely dangerous substance, which should probably be avoided by anyone who wishes to remain among the living) in order to share the knowledge of this particular class of substance with others here.

Galantamine is an alkaloid found in Galanthus caucasicus, which is used by some to increase the likelihood of them becoming lucid in dreams. In other words, to induce lucid dreaming. In my opinion, this earns galantamine the title of sacrament as I believe the phenomenon of carrying ones ordinary consciousness into the dream world to be a spiritual phenomenon. Galantamine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, meaning it increases the amount of acetylcholine in the brain. What interests me is the fact that muscarinic acetylcholine binding induces nausea. For example, scopolamine is commonly used to treat motion sickness due to its anticholinergic activity (namely its ability to block muscarinic ACh receptors).

Galantamine is a very interesting substance, I recommend reading up on it:
I naturally have frequent lucid dreams most nights but I intend on testing out its lucid dream inducing properties as soon as I get a hold of it. Galantamine should be taken with lecithin (or any other choline source) to avoid depleting ones acetylcholine levels.

The calabar bean contains an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (basically just a substance which increases the amount of acetylcholine in the brain) called physostigmine. It basically induces the opposite effects of anticholinergics like datura (which block acetylcholine receptors) so it can be used to reverse the effects of anticholinergic intoxication and vice versa.

As with most pharmacological compounds, one must exercise extreme caution with acetylcholinersterase inhibitors but like anticholinergics, one should exercise an exceptionally high degree of caution with this particular class of substances. To give you an idea of the dangers, nerve gas is part of this family of substances. The calabar bean is extremely dangerous too. In medicine, the main use for physostigmine is to reverse the effects of anticholinergics (i.e. in cases of accidental datura ingestion). Conversely, a shot of atropine directly into the heart is used in medicine to reverse the effects of nerve gas.

Here is the history section from the calabar beans wiki page:
They constitute the E-ser-e or ordeal beans of the people of Old Calabar, being administered to persons accused of witchcraft or other crimes. In cases where the poisonous material did its deadly work, it was held at once to indicate and rightly to punish guilt; but when it was rejected by the stomach of the accused, innocence was held to be satisfactorily established. A form of dueling with the seeds is also known among the natives, in which the two opponents divide a bean, each eating one half; that quantity has been known to kill both adversaries. Although thus highly poisonous, the bean has nothing in external aspect, taste or smell to distinguish it from any harmless leguminous seed, and disastrous effects have resulted from its being incautiously left in the way of children. The beans were first introduced into Britain in the year 1840; but the plant was not accurately described until 1861, and its physiological effects were investigated in 1863 by Sir Thomas Richard Fraser. The bean usually contains a little more than 1% of alkaloids. Two of these have been identified, one called calabarine with atropine-like effects, and the other, the drug physostigmine, used in the treatment of anticholinergic syndrome, myasthenia gravis, glaucoma and delayed gastric emptying.
So it was literally purge or die for those on trial. A fairly insane system of justice in my opinion, while purging can be a spiritual phenomenon, it can just as easily be a purely physical phenomenon.  I'm fairly sure I could maintain my innocence in a trial like that, but people who can't purge easily wouldn't stand a chance.

Who can and can't do Kambo? / Depression
« on: August 18, 2013, 09:05:17 am »
I've had depression for about 7 years now, and its interfering with my ability to live pretty greatly. I've used kambo by itself plenty of times, but the relief only lasts maximum of 1 day. Is there anything I can use kambo with to enhance the healing effects towards this end (curing depression) I haven't done aya or ibo (not a flood at least) yet, I have great hopes for them but it won't be for another month that I do aya (with the SD church) and longer before I do an ibo flood.

Acupuncture & Acupressure / Is there any way to see meridians?
« on: August 13, 2013, 11:48:02 am »
I'm wondering if there are any methods which enable one to actually see meridians. I know that some entheogens such as psilocybe mushrooms make one much more perceptive to natural phenomena that one may ordinarily be oblivious to, but I have never seen meridians or chakras in any state I have explored thus far.

The Process / Skin turning orange
« on: August 10, 2013, 12:54:33 pm »
Twice now when I applied kambo to a particular area (I reused the same burn locations the second time), my arms turned orange. It was accompanied by a tingling, numbness feeling. Last time, I got a bit scared because the tingling was intense, but it wore off after a few minutes. This is a new effect for me, I haven't experienced this before. I'm wondering if this particular effect was caused by the area I applied the kambo. Has anyone here experienced orange skin before? This happens to me when its cold out, sometimes I'll get orange patches on my hands, but on kambo my whole hands turned orange.

A person who I applied kambo to recently, expressed his concern that nature spirits in specific areas which happen to be very pure, don't take kindly to people tainting the energy in the area with negativity. So we're thinking that there must be places where the panema can be readily dissipated in such a way that it won't disturb any nature spirits inhabiting the area. What kind of places do indigenous people who work with kambo (i.e. the Katukina) select for kambo ceremonies geared towards releasing panema?

While kambo is not psychoactive, I suspect that it could be in danger of being banned since medicines like these have the potential to undermine the interfere with the interests of the pharmaceutical companies (i.e. they are in the business of treating symptoms, so if people can cure the illnesses, then they would have no symptoms that need suppressing). We should take a proactive approach to ensuring that kambo will always be available to those who need it. It should not be difficult to have the use of a spiritually powerful substance like kambo recognised as a religious practice. I'm sure it will be readily reconised as that in countries like Brasil and Peru, but I'm thinking about Europe and north America. In my country (Ireland), they are still battling to have Santo Daime officially allowed, after the government violated the Irish constitution by arresting church members. As I said though, kambo is not a psychoactive substance, so it should be easier to have it officially legalised.

Sharing of the Healers / What to do when someone doesn't purge
« on: July 27, 2013, 09:04:17 am »
I recently applied kambo to someone but they didn't purge. Not out the mouth at least, they purged out the other end about an hour after the application. I've heard that administering some Rape' helps with that. Do indigenous healers use this substance with kambo to facilitate the purge?

I have applied kambo to 3 people so far, and the person who seemed to benefit most from it is a Buddhist monk. He liked it a lot and says that he can feel its energy entering him through the top of his head which is interesting. He was far more sensitive to it than the other two people who I applied it to. I also noted that out of the 3 people I applied it to, the two more spiritually inclined people purged. All 3 of these people are on a spiritual path, and I deemed them worthy to receive the medicine as they naturally have a respect for it, but it seems that the more deeply spiritually inclined the person is, the more sensitive they are to the medicine. 

General Discussion / Physical differences after doing kambo
« on: July 27, 2013, 08:53:39 am »
After doing kambo, people regularly say things like "did you get a haircut, you look different" or "you look fresh right now" etc. Interesting stuff. When I look in the mirror I don't see any difference myself, but other people seem to see it. I don't see why a physical purge would change appearance instantly like that, so I suspect it is more to do with the spiritual side of things.

I heard a few people on this forum refer to rape' as a healing substance. Can anyone elaborate on that? What kind of ailments can rape' be used to alleviate?

I remember seeing someone on this forum mention that nu-nu can be used to facilitate purging on kambo, but I can't find the post where I read that. How can it be used for this? Would one just insufflate a small amount of it after the kambo takes effect?

I want to experience this visionary state for myself. How much nu-nu does one need to insufflate before one loses consciousness and "dreams"?

Kambo & Rapé / Nu-Nu Snuff / Singado internasal tea / How to take nu-nu
« on: February 22, 2013, 05:54:05 pm »
I got 2g of powdered nu-nu and want to try it by itself before using it in conjunction with kambo. How much of it does one need to snuff to get the effects? What exactly are the effects? And finally, what exactly is nu-nu? I know that one of the ingredients is nicotiana rustica (mapacho). What else does it contain?

EDIT: I tried insufflating small quantities of it and I definitely feel the effects of it. I'm not a smoker so I don't know if its solely the effects of the nicotine that I'm feeling or not. I'm interested in the visionary effects of it, but I'd prefer to do that with a shaman (I read that they actually blow their spirit into you along with the nu-nu), so I'll it for the future.
