Silicon Valley Elites Are Poisoning Themselves With Frog Mucus To Increase Mental Power

Tech Executives at Silicon Valley have been confirmed to poison themselves with Kambo, a type of frog mucus, to detox themselves mentally and physically.

A recent report by the New York Times has confirmed that Silicon Valley elites are employing an ancient Amazonian frog-mucus ritual to rid themselves of stress. According to the report, Kambo causes the executives’ faces to swell up. The poison is then discharged by either vomiting or diarrhea. Afterward, users experience increased strength, mental clarity, and calmness.

The technique has been used by indigenous Amazonian people for centuries as a way to ward off disease and offer spiritual and full-body detoxification. They derive the poison from the legs and back of the giant monkey frog. It is then treated and dried for human use.

In the case of the tech giants, only trained practitioners administer Kambo. They make a paste from Kambo resin mixed with water or saliva and then introduce it into burn holes in the arm or ankle. Moments later, the face starts swelling up and the intended effect is achieved. While Kambo leaves patients more mentally agile and stress-free, it has certain risks associated with it. If a person drinks too much water and lowers their blood salt levels, it could lead to death.

According to multiple sources, Larry Ellison (Oracle co-founder), Larry Page (Alphabet CEO), and Peter Thiel (PayPal co-founder) have all undergone Kambo therapies. In fact, the therapy has also fueled the interest of several other Silicon Valley elites in natural medicine.

"Last year, none of my patients had ever heard of Kambo," Dr. David Rabin, a psychiatrist, and neuroscientist in Monterey, California, told the New York Times. "Now, I would say 20% to 30% of my new patients already know about it. I have a lot of patients who are like, 'Oh, I'm going to do Kambo this weekend.'"

Kambo is legal in the United States and most of the world, except for Brazil.
