Amazonian Medicine Comes to Rubystar Healing Arts: April 28, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Rubystar Healing Arts in Rhinebeck has partnered with Kambo practitioner, wildlife expert and Amazon guide Rusty Johnson to bring Kambo, an ancient Amazonian medicine known as “the vaccine of the forest,” to Rubystar. Johnson will be there on April 28, from 2 to 4 p.m., to give an informational talk and show a brief film. Nutritious refreshments will be served.

Kambo is a protective resin collected off the skin of the giant monkey frog. “When introduced into the human body via the skin, it instantly scans the body and starts to work exactly where it is needed,” Johnson says. “Kambo wakes up the body’s organs, endocrine system and defense systems to their natural functions.” He says he learned about Kambo from several shamans during his 18 years in the Peruvian Amazon. “I felt its power when it cured my malaria. For many years I have provided Kambo to countless people.” 

“The Hudson Valley now has access to a phenomenal healing tool to support physical, emotional and mental health and healing, and treat many diseases and chronic pain,” says Rubystar founder Melissa Allen. “Amazonian Kambo can be a powerful treatment for achieving emotional balance, spiritual growth and soul healing; eradicating the pain and symptoms of Lyme disease; relieving asthma, migraines and viruses; treating depression; and easing the symptoms of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other diseases.”
