The macrobiotic diet has stood me in good
stead since 1965 and enabled me to avoid needing to see
a doctor or to take any prescription drugs. There are lots
of interpretations and ultimately each person discovers
what works best for them, but there is a lot of experience
out there which helps in that journey. Plato and Hippocrates
initiated the ideas, Roger Bacon and Cornaro took it up
in the Renaissance and Christopher Hufeland's 1797 book
'Makrobiotik' kickstarted the healthy eating movement of
the past 2 centuries that included Sylvester Graham, W.H.
Kellogg and Gayelord Hauser. Ohsawa's 'Zen Macrobiotics'
drew on these ancient sources and provided a modern and
holistic approach to diet and longevity that has enhanced
the lives of millions.
