Plant Healing with Ricardo

Healing with Tobacco

Tobacco is a plant that helps you to eliminate many toxins out of the body. It helps to clean the mind from negative thoughts and it helps when someone is suffering from addictions. 

This shamanic medicine is called Rapé. Rapé is administered (blown) into the nostrils with a special bamboo pipe. It is grounding the mind.

The ashes are a very important component in the Rapé, which come from the bark of medicinal or sacred trees. The exact ingredients often remain as a secret. In our centre we use sacred tobacco in our Ayahuasca rituals and during other healing rituals. Rapé helps curing headache and helps to remove confusion and negativity out of the mind, it is also stimulating the mind and decalcifying the pineal gland. Calcification of the pineal gland has been associated with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease.

In the Amazon there are some tribes that apply Rapé every day after breakfast and dinner, other tribes use it three times during the night.

Shamans use Rapé to re-align with their energy channels and with their higher self, and as well to intensify their connection with the plants and the universe. It is detoxifying the body and cleaning out all excess mucus, toxins, and bacteria.

Kambo or Sapo is a traditional healing method of the indigenous people in the Amazon. The traditionally obtained frog secretion of Phyllomedusa Bicolor is applied to the skin and thus enters the bloodstream. A Kambo session lasts about an hour and the small scars on the skin usually heal very fast. Kambo is a holistic body detoxification on all levels and strengthens the immune system.

With the frog poison Kambo the body is freed from heavy metals, fungal and viral diseases, parasites, bacteria and much more. Kambo also helps with migraines, depression, addictions and low motor skills. It supports the ability to concentrate and works for chronic pain, as well as for serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, rheumatism, high blood pressure and much more. The effectiveness is proven by countless studies. In the Amazon Kambo has been used for healing for thousands of years already and when people suffer from dengue fever, malaria or yellow fever the Amazonian population uses the poison of the frog to recover again. .


Spiritually Kambo helps to solve energetic and emotional blockages. Kambo is mind-expanding and opens the heart chakra. It thus causes a cleaning on all levels.
