5.0 out of 5 stars A Macro image of "We are what we eat", 18 Oct 2000
This review is from: Macrobiotics for Beginners: How to Achieve Health and Vitality the Oriental Way (Paperback)
Jon Sandifer has produced this beautiful, compact guide for healthy eating and living incorporating ancient oriental principles to highlight the fact that your quality of diet influences the quality of your blood which in turn is responsible for your internal balance or imbalance. Internal imbalance generates stress phenomena and illhealth causing a disturbance in the alignment of harmony between the flow of your inner Chi and the Chi in your outer environment.
Sickness,frustration and stress are a result of our day to day way of eating, thinking and living but specially our way of eating over which we have complete control. How to choose food, how to prepare meals and how to absorb and harmonise with our natural environment are the keys to humanity's personal and collective destiny.
To convey the above message effectively, the book goes into the history of Macrobiotics, the world of Yin and Yang, the Macrobiotic diet with interesting and neutritious recipes. It then gradually leads you to the recommendations for a Macrobiotic lifestyle which can give us a long and happy life.
The most revealing chapters deal with how the body is fuelled with food, liquid, air and energy and shows you how to assess your own health status. The simple seven levels for maintaining harmony and balance in your health are fabulous and absolute must for anyone wanting to improve the quality of life with ease.
Jon's wealth of background experience and training of Shiatsu, Feng Shui, Yoga, Accupressure and 9 star key astrology is obviously reflected in the content and the manner of presentation of this valuable book. Bob Lloyd's interesting recipes for Macrobiotic cooking merits this book a place in any kitchen bookshelf.
