I began this project in October of 2014 when I was asked to experiment with an herbal opiate detox formula from Vietnam called Heantos 4. I invited a friend to stay with me for a week so we could try to detox him off opiates. I began a Facebook group called 'Welcome to Heantos' and documented the experience. This ended up being the beginning of approximately eighteen months of me working very closely with people who were trying to detox themselves naturally at home. Shortly after the project started gaining momentum, I was introduced to a Holistic Health Practitioner named Neal, and we instantly knew that we had a destiny to work together in the Holistic Healing Arts. A friendship and a business partnership was immediately formed, and here we are five years later, still working together to bring nature's medicine to people who are suffering worldwide.
This has been a grassroots project, from our hearts to yours.

Holistic Health Practitioner & Kambo Provider
Neal is a Holistic Health Practitioner who has over 27 certifications in various modalities, including Shamanism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Ayurveda. As a life coach, he incorporates his Merkaba and sacred geometry certifications, Supreme Science Qi Gong, 200 Hour Yoga Alliance, Thai Yoga Massage courses, and Phytochemical nutrition to transform the lives of his apprentices. He combines indigenous traditions with Chinese energy meridians to strategically target emotional, mental, energetic, and physical blocks. Neal began studying indigenous healing practices at age 11, with interest to research his Native American blood line and discover his ancestral origins. His focused study has been primarily with Shamanic traditions originating in the Sacred Valley of Peru with the Amazonian Shamans from the Yawanawa’ indian tribe where the Kambo Frog originates. He first experienced the Kambo Frog Detox while participating in ceremonies held under the Yawanawa’ Indians in 2015. After the purging “getting well”, Neal found the effects to be profoundly life changing. Feeling truly changed by the medicine and deeply connected with the spirit of the Kambo Frog, Neal felt called to offer the Frog Detox to his clients and ceremony participants.
