CACAO CHUNCHO I THE FOOD OF THE GODS
How the ancient superfood from the Andes is changing lives sustainably
Posted on Sun 20 Mar 2022 · by Katharina Willer
The cold season is almost over, spring greets us with its colorful harbingers and the Easter fesaat is already just around the corner. In many parts of the world, sweets have established themselves as a gift and as an integral part of this festival. The famous rabbit made of chocolate is widespread and especially popular in families.
Chocolate is an integral part of life for most people – who doesn't love it?!
But beware: chocolate, commercial cacao varieties and the 100% pure Cacao Chuncho are three completely different product groups. While chocolate is nowadays used as a stimulant, wild cacao-cacao chuncho was already drunk by peoples before the Incas as an ancient superfood to healing rituals in ceremonies in liquid form.
THE ORIGINAL NAME WAS THEOBROMA
– FOOD OF THE GODS –
Chocolate and commercial cacao contain plenty of adaptogens in themselves, which help increase the body's adaptability to stress, thereby mitigating its negative health effects and forming happiness hormones such as dopanin, serotonin and its precursor triptophan.
However, the ancient superfood has many more benefits: Cacao Chuncho opens the heart and activates the energy centers. It brings stored, closed and blocked emotions back into flow in the body. In addition, it helps to balance hormone and mood swings. It can also have a regulating and healing effect on blood pressure problems and diabetes.
The healing effect of Cacao Chuncho is immediately noticeable: excessive and frivolous consumption is not recommended. The transformative powers of this high-quality product should not be underestimated! The enjoyment of Cacao Chuncho is recommended in a mentally clear and constructive atmosphere. The regular practice of yoga and meditation can help to create a constructive atmosphere for the enjoyment of this superfood more and more easily.
That is why the Swiss SONQO association regularly offers FREE ONLINE COURSES for joint practice. It creates education and networking through analogue events, among other things. Participation in CACAO CELEBRATIONS and CEREMONIES supports people in focusing on a festive or enjoyable atmosphere. In this way, the basic trust in their inner resources returns.

Support for local Chuncho farmers I Conservation of biodiversity in the SOUTHERN AMAZON
The non-profit association Sonqo, based in Zurich, supports Peruvian farmers from a producer collective in the Cusco region (chuncho comes from the province of Convencion) to align their chuncho cultivation even more clearly with its origins. For many farmers, the switch from monoculture on plantations with hybrid varieties to forest management with original resistant varieties is a huge change. But this is exactly where the exciting and creative part in the natural interaction with the jungle begins: With a further training program in SYNTROPIC FARMING and financial support for the corresponding seeds and plants, the farmers learn to interact with natural biodiversity again in complete confidence. At the same time, they are becoming less and less dependent on just one product and will soon be able to pick a variety of products from the wild. The on-site training program is led by experienced specialists.
- Would you also like to help farmers in the Cusco region to unfold the origins of their millennia-old cocoa culture in all its abundance?
- Would you like to increase biodiversity in the jungle and therefore support educational programs that help farmers to interact originally with the jungle again?
Small donations are also very welcome - every contribution helps the SONQO Switzerland association to implement this vision step by step
