Breathing New Life into Sleep: Kambo's Potential to Transform Nightly Rest

The human body is an orchestra of responses, often playing compositions far beyond our immediate understanding. In my journey with plant medicine, particularly Kambo, I've witnessed remarkable transformations that attest to the body's profound capacity to heal and rejuvenate.

Recently, an intriguing hypothesis was brought to my attention by a sleep researcher, Bruce Wright, which could potentially expand the boundaries of how we understand and utilize Kambo.

Bruce reached out with a simple yet compelling question: could Kambo, through its physically demanding nature, improve sleep quality, especially for those suffering from conditions like sleep apnea?

His hypothesis is rooted in the physicality of the Kambo experience—specifically, the induced vomiting that might strengthen the muscles in the mouth and throat, which are critical in managing airway patency during sleep. Bruce reached out to me via email with this hypothesis and after a brief email back and forth we arranged a Zoom call.

The Call

During a captivating 90-minute conversation, Bruce shared his observations and the scientific grounding behind his theory. He noted that individuals with sleep apnea often show reduced SpO2 levels—a measure of oxygen saturation in the blood. By using devices like SpO2 rings, Bruce has observed how sleep quality can be compromised by these fluctuations in oxygen levels.

Intrigued by his insights, we agreed to collaborate on an experiment during the upcoming Enchanted Forest Retreat. Our aim is to collect pre and post-treatment data using these rings to measure any notable improvements in participants' sleep quality. Bruce emphasizes a respectful approach to this study, ensuring that participation is minimally invasive yet profoundly insightful.

Participants will monitor their sleep for a few nights before and after the retreat, tracking changes and identifying any improvements in their oxygen saturation levels.

This method of "training," as Bruce puts it, is both literal and figurative. The physical act of vomiting, repeated throughout the retreat, could theoretically enhance the muscular structure of the airway, thereby improving respiratory function during sleep. It's a demanding process, but one that could yield significant improvements in sleep health, potentially reducing the reliance on mechanical interventions like CPAP machines.

The proposed study respects the sanctity of the Kambo ceremony while integrating scientific inquiry to enhance our understanding of its benefits. Each participant will be gifted a SpO2 ring (valued at $179), which they may keep, encouraging ongoing health monitoring and sharing of data for broader analysis.

After the retreat, we'll host a series of "interpretation and integration" calls where participants can discuss their findings, ask questions, and integrate their experiences with their daily lives. This holistic approach ensures that our exploration into the potential benefits of Kambo is both grounded in scientific rigor and deeply respectful of the ceremonial tradition.

Just as the powerful psychedelics I've worked with can reboot the psychological software, Kambo might offer a physiological 'upgrade' that enhances our bodily functions, particularly our nightly rejuvenation through sleep.

This investigation stands at the frontier of a new understanding, merging ancient wisdom with modern science. It's a step toward a future where natural remedies are recognized not only for their immediate spiritual and emotional impacts but also for their tangible physiological benefits.

I look forward to sharing the outcomes of our study, hopeful that we can contribute to a broader understanding and acceptance of Kambo's potential.

Until then, stay curious, respect the powerful tools nature has provided, and join us in uncovering the mysteries of the human body and mind.
