Wegener’s Disease (Granulomatosis): A Case Study
By Malcolm Slyper, IAKP Kambô Practitioner.
The following case study deals with the beneficial effects of Kambô and the condition defined as “Wegener’s Disease” or Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). It covers a series of treatments along with observations and noted improvements substantiated by Lab reports covering the medical markers.
I was approached by a Female Client (32 Y/o) looking to do Kambô in July 2019. She at face value appeared to be in good shape/health.
Upon digging deeper, and having her complete my Kambô enrolment form, it was revealed that she had an apparent autoimmune condition called Wegener Granulomatosis.
Her original diagnosis was Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). Further investigation revealed that this is a rare multi-system autoimmune disease of unknown cause. It is thus classified as an autoimmune disorder. (Autoimmune disorders occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue.)
Its hallmark features include necrotizing granulomatous (medical speak for a mass of granulation tissue, typically produced in response to infection, inflammation, or the presence of a foreign substance). It also hints at Inflammation and inflammation of the small and medium-sized blood vessels.
Over the last three years the clients Wegener’s condition had appeared and shown and manifested visibly in her sinuses, lungs and kidneys resulting in various hospital bouts.
July 2017 Bleeding sinus
October 2017 Bleeding lungs
Jan/Feb 2018 Kidneys symptoms due to inflammation of the glomeruli.
March 2018 resulted in a hospital diagnosis and treatment for the granulomatosis.
lnitial/Final diagnosis 8 Aug 2019: PR3 ANCA vasculitis (1), Pulmonary haemorrhage, Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (2). See attached doctors report from Saudi German Hospital. (3)
In Jan of 2019, She was given a Chemo type medication and a steroid to calm her immune system and bring order back to her body which it did until recently.
Since she has previously been on immuno-suppressant medication (March 2018), with this condition I wondered at the possibility that Kambô could cause the condition to flare up? Kambô is known to stir things up prior to effecting a positive change. Based upon the lab reports this appeared to be the case.
After studying her case, along with the medications she had previously taken, and finding no contraindication, I decided to cautiously proceeded to serve her three treatments within a few days of each other.
Treatments were conducted on the following days.
1st Treatment 2 August 2019
2nd Treatment 3 August 2019
3rd Treatment 12 August 2019
4th Treatment 6 September 2019 (Carol Talbot)
The client received the first Kambô well. The sessions were challenging sessions, but went well enough and with an excellent recovery afterwards.
A day after the first ceremony, she told me she was feeling really good and enjoying the afterglow of the Kambô.
15 August 2019 three days after her 3rd treatment, the client did a PR3 ANCA (antibody) test which is used to track her condition. Test results showed a return of high antibody levels. (15 AUG19 PR3 ANCA Value – 49.5: Ref range 12 – 18)
(PR3 ANCA is an antibody produced by the body that acts against one of its own proteins typical in patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis.)
25 August 2019. The client commenced doing a retest to verify the results.
Test results came back showing that the antibody had reduced ten points in 7 days. (21st AUG2019 PR3 ANCA Value – 39.2 : Ref range 12 – 18)
3 September 2019, A further Lab test revealed a negative PR3 ANCA Value.
At the time of her initial (15 AUG) result her MD wanted to treat the immune suppressant pathway with the chemo type medication again. She was loathe to go this route due to potential damage done by the chemo type medication.
The intelligence within the Kambô serves to reduce the hyper activity of the immune system when it is necessary.
Her initial treatment was the standard IAKP approach for Women. A very slow application of layered approach. Despite the slow approach, the client did feinting for less that 45 seconds.
Pre session Interview with the client revealed childhood traumas, thus I felt a Chakra treatment would be appropriate, which was conducted during the 3rd session.
My observation is that the series of Kambô treatments in combination with 6 weeks of Cleansing Diet (Vegan/Raw diet along with periods of Juice Fasting), select herbs and botanicals to support ailing system, and reduction of Stress and accompanying inner work resulted in the significant improvements noted.
Based upon the progress thus far, and bearing in mind how the Kambô mechanism works, one would expect further improvements with continued bi-monthly applications of Kambô.

Appendix A Definitions
1.Definition:Vasculitis is a general term that refers to inflammation of blood vessels.
2.Definition: Glomerulonephritis (GN) is inflammation of the glomeruli (structures in the kidneys that are made up of tiny blood vessels). These knots of vessels help filter blood and remove excess fluids. If the glomeruli are damaged, the kidneys will stop working properly, and individual can go into kidney failure. Primary causes are intrinsic to the kidney.
Secondary causes are associated with certain infections (bacterial, viral or parasitic pathogens), drugs, systemic disorders (SLE, vasculitis), or diabetes. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glomerulonephritis]
