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.

Actually crap is yellow before rectal bacteria discolor it.

The Process / Re: Skin turning orange
« on: August 28, 2013, 07:36:49 am »
So I applied on the opposite arm a while ago, and I got the same orange skin effect. That rules out the possibility that it was due to the area I applied to. Now the only thing I can think of is that I had used doxylamine to sleep the night before. My finger nails also turned purple and I felt the hands go numb, so I think it is due to a lack of blood flow to the hands. Could there be an interaction between the doxylamine and kambo? Has anyone here used kambo while there were antihistamines in their system?

Surely you have experimented with stimulants if you are afflicted with CFS. I used amphetamines to counteract my drowsiness problem for years, but while they provide a short term solution, they cause a long term problem, so best to avoid them. Have you tried administering epinephrine intravenously? The CFS may be caused by deficient output by your adrenal glands, so administering some epinephrine would tell you right away if thats the problem or not.

Can you tell us if you tried any of the things I mentioned. There are plenty of knowledgeable people here, but in order for them to share their knowledge, they need to know where you're at.

BTW how do you use mimosa with kambo? Do you drink mimosa tea before administering the kambo? Do you take an MAOI with the mimosa? I want to try this myself. I'm also interested in this pancha karma treatment you mentioned so if you could share about that too, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Kambo doesn't solve my low energy problem either, so I wasn't too optimistic when I read your posts about CFS. In this world there is a solution to every problem, its just a matter of finding it. Have you tried bee venom therapy yet? I'm working on getting a hold of some snake venoms at the moment to experiment with. Venom research is opening up a whole new frontier for pharmacology. Completely uncharted territory.

Have you tried using kambo in conjunction with catuaba and/or muira puama? What about maca? Have you ever blasted off on DMT? What about asking iboga during a flood to show you the root cause of the problem? Have you tried sleeping on a GABA_b agonist like GHB or phenibut (GHB is prescribed to narcoleptics who can't otherwise get high quality sleep)? Do you meditate?

If you have any pharmacology related questions, just ask me, I can probably answer some of them. I can help you come up with new things to try (based on what I know about pharmacology etc.) if you want.

BTW what does pure caapi tea do to you? Have you tried selegiline?

Kampum: What you said there is way too simplistic. Just because Giovanni hasn't encountered an adverse interaction, doesn't mean there are none. I'm sure Giovanni has never administered to someone on that specific medication (epival). Caution needs to be exercised always (start with an allergy test, then a small dose etc.).

You should contact Steve Ludwin about this. I'm sure he'd be willing to put this to the test. He has enough experience with self administering snake venom to safely set this experiment up. BTW I'm not taking about self administering a fatal dose of a neurotoxic snake venom to test if kambo will save ones life, I'm talking about administering a small amount (just enough to cause a localised reaction) of a hemotoxic or neurotoxic snake venom to an extremity (not on a vein) and seeing if the kambo reverses the reaction.

What could this black substance be? I recently applied to someone and they vomited dark brown liquid, I had never seen that before (he had fasted so it wasn't food). The vast majority of the time, I purge a bright yellow liquid which probably consists mainly of bile. If it is an intestinal ulcer like the article (posted by SuperKambo) suggests, then you should other symptoms. Acid reflux will be one of them. You could try taking a H2 antagonist like ranitidine (it doesn't interfere with CYP enzymes like cimetidine does) or a proton pump inhibitor like omeprazole for a week (or two) before your next kambo treatment, then see if you still purge black. If it is an ulcer, your stool should have black streaks in them too. I vomited red liquid myself once, but I'm fairly sure I don't have a stomach ulcer so I have no explanation for where the blood came from (if it was blood).

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? / Re: Depression

Thanks for pointing out the distinction. The same can probably be said for ayahuasca prepared by an indigenous shaman, as opposed to just the plant brew. The adaptogens I have tried are rhodiola, siberian ginseng and maca, and they all make the depression worse for some reason. This is a common theme (things that are supposed to help with depression, make mine worse), I recently tried frankincense and lavender essential oils and they made things worse. First I hear of Albizia julibrissin, thanks.

Is blue lotus a dopamine antagonist? I should add that enhancing glutamate activity while taking blue lotus should make the dopamine rebound even more effective. Racetams like piracetam enhance the activity of AMPA receptors so they work for this.

Precautions / Re: Fainting
« on: August 18, 2013, 02:24:02 pm »
My experience contradicts your theory. I applied to someone who is rock solid when it comes to facing suffering. He said the experience wasn't all that bad, but he was on the verge of fainting at one point. What I'm wondering now, is would it be best to let the person faint, or to keep them awake.

PsikocybeChild: Excellent suggestion. Another approach would be to apply a pain inducing tincture to the burn marks. I have some pure menthol (crystals), and rubbing a little bit of it in an open wound (such as a burn) causes an intense stinging and cold sensation that should keep anyone awake. One should be mighty careful with menthol though, a tiny amount is all thats needed. I've rubbed my forehead a couple of times after handling it, and experienced a severe burning/cold sensation of the forehead for some reason.

For me, wiping off the dots makes no difference. It probably sounds hard to believe, but the way I ensure myself a safe experience is I ask the kambo to go easy on me. I make it my intention. Once things get rough, my instinct is to want it to end ASAP. I want to stop being such a wimp in this sense, and just tough it out the whole way. You're a big inspiration to me Kampum, I'm following the path you've laid out and intend to some day endure these hardcore kambo ceremonies that you describe. keep up the good work.

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.
