When I say to people, I teach macrobioticsin class, I’m often said that you are cooking teacher, aren’t you?
Certainly, dietary is important, but macrobioticsis to know the natural order of universe, and think together about how to live based on the principles.

We can make our lives any way we want to.
Applying macrobioticsprinciples can lead to pleasurable life.
There is a dietary from based on the natural order in the universe, there is not a singular dietary regimen, like no meat, no sugar, eat grains so on.
We inform philosophy of universe through cooking the word derived from the Greek ,macro means great, bio means vitality, and tics means the techniques
In other word, everything exist in universe is necessity, there is no good or bad, some need meat, some need sugar, some don't need grains.
Using macrobiotics principles means not imposing same way of living but to determine the foods and the way of living best suited to each person based on what they want to become.
Many people think that the conception of macrobioticscame from foreign countries.
About 100hundred years ago, there was a man named Sakurazawa.
His own illness had progressed to the point that the doctors had give up all hope for him.
He found a book that was written by an influential doctor Sagen Ishizuka in Edo period.
His theory was that a natural diet leads to good health.
He recovered from illness after following the diet in the book.
He left Japan and brought his message of nutrition to France.
He used the word perpetual youth and longevity.
He practiced and preached the doctrines.
Basically, macrobiotics is conveying the wisdoms of ancient Japanese, now the word is like import back into Japan.
The Emperor family still practicing the methods of Sagen Isizuka.
The outlook on the universe which was realized ancient Japanese, not only food, posture, clothing, the soul of number, the soul of language, Visual diagnosis, Horoscope pneumatics and so on.
