I have 20 yrs natural healing from breast cancer, and along with the Canadian herbal teas to cleanse my blood of toxins, I used the Macrobiotic Way to good health. I completely changed my diet, tastes for certain food, and lifestyle I had Michio's chapter a day to update my personal Macrobiotic path. I felt the best ever in my life when I was strictly macrobiotic. Twenty years ago, it was difficult to do. ...Easier now, as more people are convinced that "Food IS our medicine!" First said by Socrates, and a profound backbone to Macrobiotic teachings. Micho DID go to Washington to be honored by Congress for the changes he and his family have brought to the USA. And the Smithsonian has opened a wing dedicated to this.first book, and it became like a bible, telling me what to do for every kind of cancer imaginable. I sought the help of a macrobiotic counselr, Lino Stanchich, and at one point went to MA to be seen by Michio Kushi. After a long time, I dared to lend out my first book by Michio, the predessor to this one. Unfortunately, I have forgotten to who I loaned it, and it has never come home to me. Perhaps it is "fortunately" it has not, because that prompted me to order Michio's new book. His fascinating, explicit recounting of all the progress cancer healing has undergone is fascinating. He still gives advice for different cancers. This is a great book, although I'd like to see my earlier one for the sake of my notes in it. I try to read a a chapter a day to renew my personal Macrobiotic path. Mr. Kushi was honored by USA Congress for the clarity he has brought to Americans. The Smithsonian opened a wing on this topic.
