Product Description

"Food is the chief of all things, the universal medicine. . . . Food transmutes directly into body, mind, and spirit . . . creates our day-to-day health and happiness." -from The Macrobiotic Path to Total Health Even in medical schools, alternative medicine is blossoming. Two thirds of them now offer courses in complementary healing practices, including nutrition. At the heart of this revolution is macrobiotics, a simple, elegant, and delicious way of eating whose health benefits are being confirmed at an impressive rate by researchers around the world. Now in this marvelous guide, they give us the basics of macrobiotic eating and living, and explain how to use this powerful source of healing to become healthier and happier, to prevent or relieve more than two hundred ailments, conditions, or disorders-both physical and psychological. This encyclopedic compendium of macrobiotic fundamentals, remedies, menus, and recipes takes into account the newest thinking and evolving practices within the macrobiotic community. The authors integrate all the information into a remarkable A to Z guide to macrobiotic healing-from AIDS, allergies, and arthritis, to cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. They also clearly explain what we need to know to start eating a true macrobiotic diet that will provide us with a complete balance of energy and nutrients. Living as we all do in environmental and climactic circumstances that are largely outside our personal control, it is vital that we follow a healthy lifestyle, including a flexible diet that we can adjust to meet our own individual needs. The Macrobiotic Path to Total Health gives us precisely the tools and the understanding we need to achieve this goal. Use it to build a strong, active body and a cheerful, resourceful mind.

Aveline Kushi's COMPLETE GUIDE TO MACROBIOTIC COOKING is the BEST book available of its kind. What distinguishes it from other books on the subject is its emphasis on explaining the philosophy behind the macrobiotic approach to cooking and to eating. In reading the background information, I learned a great deal about the WHYS and HOWS of macrobiotics. With regard to the recipes, they are simple and well-explained. There is a detailed explanation of utensils and of ingredients, as well as of the differences among different food types and their nutritional value. Insights into the health benefits of a macrobiotic way of life are also very well explained.
When I took a brief summer class on macrobiotics, the instructor said that this was the best book on the subject. Five years and about twenty-five books later, I would have to agree with him. This is the book that I ALWAYS come back to, and the one which I buy for my friends.
Another good book on the subject is Kathleen Turner's THE SELF-HEALING COOKBOOK. It was actually the first book I read on macrobiotics, and it was the one that drew my interest to this area, and is now also one which I regularly purchase for my friends who have an interest in this area.
While not totally macrobiotic, the books by Annemarie Colbin are also excellent and address similar cooking/eating topics.

The book is well organised, indexed, has delightful sketches to illuminate the subject, though even more would be helpful. I have used this book every day for a month and have cooked and eaten the results. I am now pain free, knee problems, sleep six hours at night instead of only two and a half, am ten pounds lighter, and am most grateful to Aveline Kushi for sharing with me her knowledge. I have used it together with Michio Kushi's The Macrobiotic Way and have found the combination very practical. I have only one major problem with both books. The names for vegetables in America is not the same as those in England, and without a translation or a sketch I am occasionally baffled. But apart from that I would recommend both books to everyone and in particular someone who is keen to improve their quality of life by regulating their eating habits in a calm and understanding manner.

i haven't read this book. but have completed a 10 day macrobiotic diet. i don't have a proper definion of macrobiotic foods. our diet consisted of foods that were not processed. ie: no store bought sauces, juices etc. the diet required these foods to be eliminated from my diet:rice, bread, meat, dairy, salt. although the diet was difficult, i felt healthier afterwards.
