"FAR FROM BEING A FIXED OR LIMITED REGIME, EATING MACROBIOTICALLY IS AS FLEXIBLE AND VARIED AS THE WORLD ITSELF.”

- Aveline Kushi

In the Ancient Greek language, macrobiotic means Big Life. We now know that the body is a biodynamic computer that changes with the inputs it receives. If it is fed well, if works well; if it is fed poorly, it works poorly. A healthy person is one who has been eating clean and nourishing foods free of herbicides, chemical ingredients, and pesticide residues. Billions of beneficial gut bacteria live inside her that help her body break down and absorb the foods and beverages she consumes. These good bacteria help her think happy thoughts and make sound choices. An unhealthy person, however, has been eating and drinking heavily processed, industrially manufactured non-foods, soft-drinks, and meats from abused animals that are loaded with bleached sugars, hydrogenated fats, poisonous residues, and chemical preservatives. The billions of gut bacteria that live inside the unhealthy person sap him of his precious energies and infect his mind with angry and impatient thoughts. He suffers, body and soul.

An individual's condition, constitution, internal clock, past illnesses, and genetic makeup provide the skilled macrobiotic counselor with the clues she needs to ease suffering and improve quality of life. Under her expert guidance, he will rediscover foods known for generations to help the body adapt to the planetary and environmental changes taking place upon our swiftly tilting world. The aim of macrobiotics is to keep a constant internal and external balance, to be attuned to the infinite Law of the Universe and the infinite cycles of the Universe. Macrobiotics adjusts the internal compass as well as the acid-alkaline balance using real foods straight off the stalk or tree and fresh from the husk, rind, peel, or shell.
