Balanced health is achieved when there is a harmonious equilibrium within our body's systems:
Endocrine, Circulatory, Respiratory, Immune, Digestive, Urinary, Lymphatic, Nervous, Muscular, Reproductive, Skeletal, Integumentary.
Imbalance within our body systems occurs when our own Yin and Yang qualities are no longer in equilibrium.
Imbalance in our bodies presents as lethargy, inflammation, discharge, depression, aches and pains, illness and disease.
Radiant health can be enjoyed when vibrant, nourishing foods are consumed AND digested properly in order to reach all of your body's systems on a cellular level.
"Macro" is defined as large and "biotic" as pertaining to life.
Macrobiotics = Large Life or Great Life
Macrobiotic diet and philosophy have been practiced, promoted, embraced and debated for centuries. Widely practiced today in European and Eastern cultures, it, unfortunately, still remains a misunderstood approach in many parts of the United States.
My teachings highlight the history, core beliefs and principles while promoting the universal health benefits and encouraging intuitive adaptation.
The following is a definition of Macrobiotics as discussed and accepted by the Macrobiotic Association of Great Britain, Strengthening Health Institute, George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation, the new Spanish Association and others during the October 2017 Macrobiotics International meeting in Berlin.
"Macrobiotics, noun, (used with a singular verb.) 1. a way of life that guides one's choices in nutrition, activity and lifestyle. 2. a system of principles and practices of harmony to benefit the body, mind and planet. - macrobiotic, adj., such as macrobiotic diet or macrobiotic philosophy. Origin: from Ancient Greek: Macro (large or long) and Bois (life or way of living.)"
Yin and Yang and the Five Transformations serve as the guiding principles in my menu planning, recipe recommendations and preferred cooking methods each season. By acknowledging and working with nature's cycles, we can achieve optimal health. Focusing on a whole foods, plant-based, seasonal menu while making any necessary adjustments for specific individual health concerns yields astonishing results.
It is my goal to empower you in your own kitchen. Refine your cooking skills and prepare your own customized meals while making seasonal adjustments and following your own intuition. Fueling your body with vibrant, nutrient dense foods will assist you in maintaining, or returning, your body to a harmonious state of balanced health!
Small changes yield big results.
