These web pages have been prepared to describe in detail the standard macrobiotic dietary recommendations and to serve as a guideline in everyday meal planning. These health recommendations are based upon the research, training, and personal experiences of the authors and especially reflect the understanding as developed by Michio and Aveline Kushi from their worldwide experiences in lecturing, writing, and guiding many people toward health and well-being. Over the past forty years, tens of thousands of people throughout the world have benefited from recommendations such as these, including many instances of recovery from cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and other chronic and acute psychological and emotional disorders.

 

Because each person and situation is different, the reader may choose to check with a qualified health professional before using any procedure where there is any question as to its appropriateness.

 

In addition to eating well, it is necessary to maintain a positive outlook on life and bring into balance our physical and mental activities, all of which work toward creating a harmonious and peaceful life. The decision to follow macrobiotic recommendations is a personal one; therefore, the authors and publisher are not responsible for any adverse effects or consequences resulting from the application of any of the suggestions, preparations, or procedures on this site. Please seek more specific recommendations from a qualified macrobiotic advisor if you wish to further develop your understanding.
