Macrobiotic Diploma Course in Shin Sen Dojo

December 19, 2017

Macrobiotics meaning big or great life is also considered the universal way of health and happiness. Its use can be traced back to Hippocrates who is called the Father of western medicine. Interestingly he mainly healed people with food. This is one of the central tenets of Macrobiotics that the greatest medicine is our daily food.

In the mid 1900s Macrobiotics was popularised by the Japanese philosopher and medical practitioner George Ohsawa. Ohsawa has seen his family become sick and die following a western diet and medicine. He himself had nearly died until he discovered a book on healing based on the traditional Japanese diet. Within three months he had completely healed and in gratitude he devoted his life to promoting the way of health through food and diet.

Now millions of people have practiced this way of eating including Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Scarlet Johansson and the late John Denver. I have practiced this way of eating for over 42 years and I am continually amazed at the power of food to bring about personal transformation.
