Essence Of Macrobiotics

Nutrients and energy from pure, unadulterated food are what the human body needs to be healthy. It is advisable to consider safe and pure food that heals and nourishes the body best.

Organically grown food is fundamental to macrobiotics as they have higher nutritional value compared to conventional farmed produce that is cultivated using chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides.

Macrobiotic products are entirely natural and organic produce grown using the slow and traditional process that is free of artificial inducement, chemical input and food additives. As such, the natural flavours of organic produce are refreshingly tasty and delicious.

Health and beauty publications and televisions shows worldwide report the macrobiotic diet as gaining popularity today. Well-know celebrities such as Madonna, Tom Cruise and supermodels keep to a macrobiotic diet to stay fit and healthy due to their demanding work schedules and public appearance obligations.

Historically, Dr. Sagen Ishizuka, a Japanese army medical officer, began the macrobiotics lifestyle movement in the 18th century. George Oshawa and Michio Kushi first brought the deeply rooted Eastern vegan wisdom to the West in the 1950s. Since then, the philosophy and practice of Macrobiotics have spread globally as more people realise the importance of eating the right foods for optimal healthy living.

In Malaysia, Macrobiotics was introduced in 1993 by Ms June Ka Lim, founder of Woods Macrobiotics, the total healthy, healing and lifestyle centre in Kuala Lumpur.
