MACROBIOTICS

Everything you need to begin your journey.

Macrobiotics is a way of life that can be used to create extraordinary health, through using both traditional wisdom and modern knowledge to ascertain the underlying causes of an individual’s current health challenges and make adjustments to their food and lifestyle choices that support health improvement. Not simply a “diet”, macrobiotics recognizes the profound effects food, environment, activities, and attitude all have on our body-mind-emotions.

Whether you want to simply learn how to use our powerful food and lifestyle recommendations to optimize your health and support overcoming health issues, or you want to deepen your understanding of the principles upon which macrobiotics is based, and learn advanced cooking techniques and the skills of macrobiotic visual diagnosis, the Macrobiotic Association provides outstanding macrobiotic resources to suit your personal interests and goals.

HISTORY OF MACROBIOTICS

The earliest recorded use of the term “macrobiotics” (from the Greek “macro” meaning great, or long, and “bios” meaning life) is found in the 4th century BC in ancient Greece in the writings of Hippocrates, who is considered the father of western medicine. He wrote about the importance of fresh, seasonal food and outdoor exercise and how these factors reflected in the health of his patients. His ideas were later taken up by other classical writers including Galen, Aristotle and Herodotus.

MACROBIOTIC COOKING

Making wise choices about our eating influences our health and how we feel. We can also support society and the environment through Fair Trade, Organic Foods and Local Foods In Season.

We recommend using simple foods that are full of nutrients and energy, such as whole grains, vegetables, and plant-based proteins. These foods are now considered worldwide to be amongst the most healthy, and they also require minimum resources to produce.

LIFESTYLE

Macrobiotic living is based on using our common sense, knowledge, and self-reflection to engage in a process of continual self-development. The aim is to engage in a journey of physical, emotional and mental evolution.

Ultimately we seek to live with greater consciousness in terms of our health, the environment and our ability to support other people on their journey in life.

EXERCISE

Walking is the best movement we can do every day of our lives. It reduces stress by moving every organ inside us so it can revitalize and be free after being cramped up behind a desk or computer. Moving this way lets vital oxygen into the lungs and blood stream, wakes up the muscles and tendons, stimulates the mind and body and heart. After movement and with more oxygen we can become calmer, quietly inspired, refocused.

FAMILY & CHILDREN

When we start a family everyday eating becomes a big focus in our lives. Although it takes time, preparing good quality, fresh food each day is very worthwhile and can help to build our family’s health. Gathering all the family members together for at least one meal each day (if possible) helps to create strong family bonds and good eating habits.
