BIOHACK-HERS: The Biohacking Benefits of Shamanic Frog Poison Kambo Ceremonies

On this episode of Biohack-HERS, HigherDOSE Founders Lauren Berlingeri and Katie Kaps meet with Todd Shipman, a shaman-trained biohacking expert, for one of their most extreme biohacking experiences to date — aka, the Kambo ceremony.

For centuries, Indigenous Amazonians have extracted frog poison for its alleged healing powers and utilized the venom in a sacred ritual known as a Kambo ceremony. Kambo ceremonies are believed to detox the body through an intense 20 minutes of flu-like purging. In this episode, Todd Shipman guides Lauren and Katie through the ancient healing ritual and adds a scientific twist for further biohacking benefits.

This ancient practice is said to have profound health benefits — but, is the bile worth the benefit? Find out on this episode of Biohack-HERs.
