If you follow my Instagram, you already know that I’ve tried Kambo, a secretion from a poisonous Amazonian frog that actually has positive health benefits for humans. Understandably this raised a lot of questions from all of you, like “why would you do that?” and “what does it do?”. This episode goes deep on all of those questions and more.
Todd Shipman is a personal friend of mine and a well-known biohacker. He is also a certified Kambo practitioner and introduced me to Kambo for the first time. I’ve now used it quite a few times and noticed a variety of physical, emotional, and mental benefits. We go into all the facts about Kambo, its history, and all of the science and lore around this unusual therapy.
On to an especially exciting and out-of-the-box episode!

This episode is brought to you by Wellnesse, that’s Wellnesse with an “e” on the end- my new personal care product line of natural and good-for-you haircare, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and more. You’ve likely heard that much of what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body, which is a good reason to avoid harmful products, but you can also use this to your advantage by putting beneficial things on your body! Realizing that many of my closest friends still used certain conventional personal care products even though they’d cleaned up many other parts of their diet and home, I set out to create alternatives that outperformed the existing conventional options, with no harmful ingredients, and Wellnesse was born. Our good-for-you haircare and mineral rich toothpaste nourish your body from the outside in while you nourish it from the inside out, for amazing hair and teeth. Check it out at Wellnesse.com.
