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; Great Life; Grand 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.
Rigid "rules" promoting proprietary teachings have lead to confusion, misunderstanding, narrow recommendations and unhealthy practices.
My teachings highlight the history, core beliefs and principles while promoting the universal health benefits and encouraging intuitive adaptation.
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. Learn to cook and prepare 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.
