There may be a low level addictive quality to kambo, according to Professor Shaw. Research into the Indian tribes that have used kambo has, according to Professor Shaw, found that they need to take more and more over time, perhaps because of this overloading. This chimes with the experience of kambo users in the UK, who describe their desire to repeat use. Practitioners are keen to stress that the use of kambo should be restricted to 12 times a year.

The condition is nothing more than a label assigned to an arbitrary set of symptoms. Even the diagnostic criteria is not all encompassing of the many symptoms people with the condition struggle with. There are plenty of “pill mills” and “scrip doctors”, and plenty of patients who will abuse that gray-market system. That is not what I’m referring to when I talk about self-advocacy by people who need actual, legitimate help. As a side note, she also mentioned that the newest fad (not quite at gut distress levels yet) is middle-aged men insisting they have ADHD, demanding diagnosis and prescriptions.
