The first was in 2008, when a 52-year-old Brazilian man died at a private kambo ceremony. He had taken kambo several times before over the course of the previous few months, to treat a health condition. This time, he went to the bathroom unobserved, and was later found not breathing on the floor, and could not be resuscitated. Also known as sapo, it is the poisonous secretion of a tree frog that, when applied to burns on the skin, induces an intense experience involving nausea, dizziness, pain, and disorientation.

One other great thing about this method is sometimes there isn’t any nausea at all. I’ve experienced this many times myself, even to the point where I felt like not enough Kambo was applied. On these occasions, I’ve gone ahead and drunk the water anyway, purged, and realised that the bile was there all along. This is difficult to define in words but the best way it can be described is that you really “feel” the presence of the frog when you take Kambo dry.
