Product Description: The macrobiotic way of life is based on living in harmony with the natural environment. The environment has a profound influence on our health. The quality of air that we breathe and water we drink directly influence our condition, as does the human environment around us. A noisy, high-stress environment, for example, can interfere with our efforts to be healthy, while a quiet, natural environment supports well being. Daily food is a condensed form of the environment that we internalize each day, and thus has a decisive influence on health and well being.
Between this book, Tired or Toxic?, You Are What You Ate, and The E.I. Syndrome, Dr. Sherry Rogers explored the relationship between diet, environment, and human health and sickness. She explains how an unnatural, overly artificial diet contributes to a variety of health problems, and how certain aspects of the modern lifestyle, including the use of artificial substances in our surroundings, can also weaken health.
It was through her study of environmental illness that Dr. Rogers discovered the macrobiotic approach. She has since deepened her understanding by participating in special seminars for physicians presented by the Kushi Institute, and by attending and assisting at the Macrobiotic Way of Life Seminars in Boston. She has also begun to offer macrobiotics to an increasing number of patients, and has witnessed numerous improvements in health as a result.
With her study and personal experience as a background, Dr. Rogers explains in her books how the macrobiotic diet, based on unrefined whole grains, beans and bean products, fresh local vegetables, sea vegetables and other whole natural foods, can prevent illness and restore health. She offers the case histories of her patients as proof of the efficacy of macrobiotics. Dr. Rogers also includes practical guidelines and suggestions designed to help readers embark on a new way of eating and living.
Dr. Rogers is a pioneer in the development of a new approach to healthcare, based on the synthesis of traditional and modern approaches. By emphasizing diet and way of life, she is pointing the direction toward and understanding of the most fundamental causes of sickness. And by presenting the macrobiotic diet within the context of prevention and recovery, she is furthering the development of a comprehensive system of healthcare that can solve society's most fundamental problems.
Like Dr. Rogers, hundreds of physicians throughout the world are pursuing the macrobiotic way of life, both in their own lives and as a solution to the modern health crisis. Macrobiotic study programs and seminars for doctors have been presented in the United States, France, in the Central African Republic of the Congo, and in Hungary and Yugoslavia.
Dr. Rogers is a leading member of the international network of macrobiotic physicians, and her efforts are supported by colleagues around the world. It is my hope that these ongoing efforts, including the publication of this book, will serve for the development of a medicine of humanity that will contribute to the health and peace throughout the world.
