AUFEVER-I musta missed it, pls try again

keep in mind that to halt-reverse- or cure a chronic illness requires a radical lifestyle change–that the patient stop being passive and take charge of his health–and follow whatever protocol necessary CORRECTLY and OVER TIME–some patients may be too weak to do that-so they would need loving friends or relatives to help them…i’ve been doing this diet for 40 years and maybe one out of a 100 will actually do the diet corretly…the other 99 will spend the rest of their lives saying=” Yeah, I know all about the macro diet and it doesn’t work”

I have been practicing macrobiotic diet since 1972. Congential heart condition. Not expected to live past 4 or earlier years. I will be 69 in this year. Barb Frey.

The main pull towards Macrobiotics for me is that IT MAKES SENSE and you needn’t get involved with any gimmicky potions or pills. It is what it is and it is just about how you feel and how to take care of yourself. The answer to how you feel starts with what you eat. Having incorporated a Macrobiotic diet and lifestyle for over a year now I have experienced many milestones to reassure myself that this is good for me … my mind clearing up, my insight improving, my confidence building and the increase in physical endurance that I experienced this winter, which is beneficial to my job as a professional ski instructor.

The Journey continues.. It was 16 years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and told that chemo may give me 6 months to live. I believed that and decided to not take the drugs but to begin my own natural healing. I was two months into my “healing” Journey when I 
discovered Macrobiotics. I learned a great deal with the books and self study. I met some good people at the K.I. (macro center) and their fellowship helped me along the way. I am still living the great life and at age 55 feel great still walk an hour a day and still enjoy the good foods from the earth. I will be leaving for China in two weeks to travel and learn for the next three months. Life is Great. I wish you all this Great Life as well.

In 2001 I was diagnosed with stomach cancer stage III, grade. 

My prognosis was 6 months, the most 12 with chemoradiation. After two major surgeries, and in the middle of chemoration, I got a consultation with Mr Kushi, who was the first human to give me some hope. Well, I followed his recommendations, and changed my lifestyle overnight. 

It worked, I was dismissed from checkups last year, considered completely cured, though doctors never admit the power of it, they agree that a healthy lifestyle gave me life back. I am and will always be grateful to Michio and to all the people dedicated to macrobiotics, if one embraces it with trust, the rest is a question of cause and effect. Good habits generate
good health. Thanks to you all.

In late April 2007 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer that had metastized slightly to my left pelvic bone. I went on a strict “Kushi Prostate Cancer Macrobiotic Diet”. I retained Verne Varona, an “OUTSTANDING” Macrobiotic counsellor with a strong Macrobiotic background.

After 3 months my PSA dropped from 39.6 to 0.8, and my testosterone dropped from 426 to 10. ( I also took Casodex & Zolodex for about 2 months staring 5-1-07 and terminated both 6-1-07) I am now taking no drugs and am cancer free I also lost 21 pounds from 153 to 132 (height 5’81/2″ age 70) and many other positive changes are too numerous to go into. 

Macrobiotics should be a worldwide requirement – however the profit driven medical establishment is to ingrained and powerful to allow natural healing to curtail their money machines.

As a child, I had chronic chest problems. I suffered from pneumonia at age 7 and had my tonsils removed at age 8 and was forever getting bad coughs and colds. When I discovered Macrobiotics and omitted all dairy products from my diet, it was nothing short of a miracle. I can honestly say that I rarely get a cold or cough now and haven’t had to visit a doctor in years. Macrobiotics has taught me that the cure really is in the kitchen.

Macrobiotics has provided me with a sense of purpose in my life, confidence in my ability to deepen my own health, and optimism in my ability to help others – friends, family, and patients – improve their health. It has provided a fascinating counterpoint to the standard western perspectives on molecular biology and pathophysiology. And beyond this, it has helped me to see the unity in all creation and to understand the process of change.

Macrobiotics has been a key part of my life. Macrobiotics has given me vast energy, the ability to heal, as well as prevent illness, clarity of mind, and strength of spirit. Macrobiotic principles and philosophy are so vital! Macrobiotics continues to serve as a bridge towards my own self-realization. 

Andrew Vavrek – Musician

On an intellectual level macrobiotics, although assimilating & using the concepts is sometimes confusing, it has given me clarity and understanding about the world in which we live, why things are the way they are, why things happen the way they do and I find that comforting. Physically, the improvement to my health was dramatic, I lost 30lbs in the first two months of the change and literally felt light and happy, I was on the way to irritable bowel syndrome and that miraculously disappeared, my athlete’s foot went away never to return, my PMS and heavy periods – gone! etc. etc. and I probably am in better shape than I was when I was a teenager although I am 43. I get a lot of pleasure when I get an ‘aha!’, when something clicks, some smidgeon of understanding as I continue to broaden my knowledge. I have direction and passion in my life because of macrobiotics which very importantly helps me to get up in the morning!

In the beginning, it cleared my skin and eliminated my chronic fatigue, asI quit eating milk products and sugar. It also vastly improved my moods,from gloomy and melancholy to cheerful and energetic. The philosophical approach was very important to me. Ohsawa’s dictum.”a theory without a practice is useless; a practice without a theory is dangerous,” became a major concept underlying my life and my work. 

Annemarie Colbin, Ph.D – The founded of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts

Macrobiotics is a way of eating, thinking, and living that is intended to help you to become your best self. The food and way of life provides energy, lightness of being, clarity of mind, and a broad view of life. 

We have to use these gifts in order to better understand ourselves and others, to have greater compassion, to have the courage to open our hearts, to speak our truths, and become ourselves. Doing these simple things becomes a path to your inner nature, your soul. 

This is the real spiritual path. Macrobiotics has helped me to become more myself. It’s helped me accept myself more completely, to relax ever more deeply into my being, and to live and speak more fully from my heart. 

Tom Monte – authors and teachers of natural healing. He has written more than 30 books and hundreds of articles on virtually every area of health.

Macrobiotics helped me in some expected and unexpected ways. The understanding about food was initially, meaning the first seven years, very important to me. But as I grew more knowledgeable about cooking, I began to discover a much deeper meaning of macrobiotics, and that has to do with freedom. It is possible to be attached to anything, even the best things such as spiritual ideals or philosophical beliefs. 

Anne Scott

In 1965, a friend invited me to have dinner with Michio and Aveline Kushi.

I was already a vegetarian (from birth) but I ate a lot of sugar and junk food. The diet made sense to me. I loved the rice and found it to be so satisfying. I began to attend Michio’s lectures and the philosophy sounded right. It was such a big view; looking at human life from a single cell to the whole cosmos. That is big. And now, 38 years later, I still think that whole grains can be one way to save humanity and the sanity of the race. 

Betsy Polatin -The faculty at the Opera Institute and Boston University 

Macrobiotics has helped me be more of who I am. What I mean is that is has inspired me to be the absolute best Bita I can be. It has also always been a force of positivity, coupled with my own personal philosophy. I feel it has given me an edge in life. I never feel alone because I have a strong belief in philosophy as a whole. To quote Nietzsche, one of my favorite philosophers: “We are always in our own company.” This quote is tender yet whimsical at the same time. 

Food wise, macrobiotics has helped me have more energy and vigor than anyone I know. The combination of a macrobiotic diet and an avid love of fitness keeps me brimming with spunk. I look at people my age and I can’t believe that we’re the same age!. I had a fiesta recently to celebrate my 25th birthday, and people were just sitting on the couch like slugs, watching television. I was ready to dance the night away!

The macrobiotic way of life has been with me for over 16 years now, and the continued changes I have observed sometimes will astound even me. It takes a few years, but gradually old paradigms melt away and a new, healthier and happier way of thinking develops instead. I feel clearer, more organized, happier and healthier than I ever could have imagined possible. The macrobiotic way of life never ceases to amaze me, even to this day.
