What is Macrobiotics?
Literally translated as ‘Big Life’, Macrobiotics is about achieving optimum health through diet and lifestyle. The philosophy is based around the Eastern concept of Yin and Yang and the order of the Universe. The aim of Macrobiotics is to achieve perfect balance between the Yin and Yang energies within the body through diet and lifestyle.
What is a Macrobiotic Diet?
The Macrobiotic diet is based on fresh, seasonal and organic wholefoods, simply and carefully prepared. Developing a personal awareness around which foods are right for you can be life-changing. A balanced Macrobiotic diet is widely reported to offer significant health benefits, including preventing and in some cases reversing the onset of many degenerative diseases by strengthening the body’s own natural defence mechanism.
'Research has linked modern diet and lifestyle habits to virtually all the debilitating chronic degenerative diseases, as well as lesser health issues generally attributed to aging. Without knowing which dietary and lifestyle changes can bring the health transformation people are looking for, is it any wonder there is a health crisis in the world today?' - Kushi Institute
