Peace within creates a peaceful world. Balanced meals support a peaceful mind and are a strong basis for a dynamic and health conscious lifestyle. Research confirms that such a lifestyle supports wellness and eases aggression and disharmony. Gabriele Kushi starts by creating balance in the kitchen with seasonal foods that are traditional and sustainably grown. Natural foods like whole grains, vegetables from land and sea, legumes and fermented foods, fruits, seeds and nuts are the fundamental in the macrobiotic kitchen.
We all know that the food we eat and the lifestyle we choose affects our health. Scientific researchers have proved this to us for decades, and our own experience tells us so. In macrobiotics, we follow the rhythm of the seasons and the natural healing processes in harmony with nature’s movement.
Many people have given testimonials of how they healed breast cancer, Crohn’s disease, and other illnesses with macrobiotic diets, specially designed for them. In 2000, an important study of alternative treatments used by cancer patients reported unconventional treatments, including macrobiotics, effective in reducing stress, minimizing discomforts, and giving patients a sense of control.
