Agneta Gynning, editor and artist

I have tried Sancho several times with excellent results but I especially remember Christmas time in 2004 when I was about to travel to Vietnam and everybody around me had caught colds and the 'flu. I too started to feel a sore throat and was convinced that I was about to be become ill and the last thing I wanted was to have to stay in Sweden. I live at Österlen and it was a Sunday afternoon and everywhere was closed but I knew that a colleague had Sancho at his home so I called him and asked if I could come and get some. I had my first dose that Sunday night. I didn´t get ill and had a wonderful vacation in Vietnam. I now have Sancho in my family medicine chest. As a bonus it help heal my mouth ulcer as well.

Alana Woods, USA:

Recently I was in Southern India, outside Chennai, where I took a 21-day course at the Oneness University. I arrived from the US with a miserable congestion in my throat, soreness and a cough in the mornings. This had been chronic for almost a year and nothing seemed to help. I happened to meet a wonderful healer from Sweden who gave me a little remedy called 'SANCHO" ("Feeling Good-Better"). I put 5-6 drops in a glass of hot water and drank it in the mornings. The congestion started to dissolve immediately. He had been requested to bring some bottles of it to India and gave them as gifts to the Avatars Sri Bhagavan and Amma and the monks there.

At midsummer I had forgotten my nasal spray and my nose was clogged up so I had difficulties breathing. I applied a few drops of Sancho to my finger and inhaled it. To my surprise my nose cleared and I could breathe again and the effect lasted the whole afternoon. My friend also tried and the same thing happened - what a relief for the nose!

My future wife had felt ill and had had a cold a long time, for a couple of months in fact. So when I came to hear about Sancho I was curious. I received the bottle on Friday and then was asked to get in touch after the weekend and tell how she felt. After the weekend both me and my future wife were shouting for joy. She was free from the symptoms of her cold! What a wonderful feeling! Sancho is now a part of our family medicine chest!

Cynthia Nieb, USA

My experience with Sancho was immediate. I have very intense allergies that cause me to be foggy-headed and extremely tired most of the time. After my dose of Sancho, my head cleared, and I experienced a calm energy for approximately 24 hours. Nothing has helped me this quickly or thoroughly. Thank you for bringing this product to the United States!

How Sancho came to the West

Sancho is the news in the West from the Himalayas in Nepal that helps you fight a cold.

Head cold, stuffy nose, sore throat and cough and so on are some of the symptoms of a cold that are relieved when you use Sancho! This is in addition to the symptoms of the cold disappearing faster if they develop at all!

I discovered Sancho when my sweetheart and I were travelling in Nepal a few years ago. We had been exploring in the mountains of the Himalayas for a week and had among other things been up at the Mount Everest base camp (about 5350 meters). On the day we were due to make our way down, we both woke up with a bad cough. A cold at high altitude always feels a lot worse.In the afternoon, at about four o´clock, after a whole day of exploring we came to a farm were we were to camp for the night. We were both very tired and felt very run down as is common during the first days of a cold. A farm woman saw that we looked unwell and spoke to our guide and asked him to ask us if we wanted to try a herbal remedy that would make our colds better. Little did we suspect how potent the contents of this little bottle were. I am always prepared to try new and alternative remedies, so I thanked the farm woman and said I would try it. My sweetheart wasn´t interested in taking drops from a little bottle that could contain something dangerous and that would make the cold seem quite nice … Between 16.30 and 21.00 I took three doses of Sancho in a glass of hot water. The next morning I woke up and felt a lot better. The next day I had fully recovered, much to my sweethearts annoyance. She was as ill as the day before and wasn´t any feeling any better despite the fact that we were descending to a lower altitude. A few days later we had to see a doctor as she wasn´t getting any better. The doctor prescribed her some big red antibiotic capsules for sinusitis.

The farm woman would not accept any payment from me, and to this day I still do not know her name. When I asked how I could repay her kindness, she asked me to take this remedy back to my own country and then import it. In this way Nepal, her country, would earn money for education and medical care. This is the way in which she wanted me to thank her and it is also why you read this text. Sancho is produced and manufactured in Nepal by local workers from ingredients collected from the slopes of the Himalayas.

For every bottle sold a contribution of 5 Swedish crowns to is made to charity in Nepal in thanks to the farm woman for showing me the bottle and in order to help children in Nepal to obtain education and medical care.
