Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This book from the authors of The Macrobiotic Way and The Cancer Prevention Diet offers an all-inclusive view of macrobiotics-from diet to medicine to lifestyle. The book first explains the macrobiotic diet's focus on complex carbohydrates, vegetables and whole form foods, rather than on fat and animal-based proteins. However, most of the book is about the impact of certain foods on specific health conditions. Readers who have tried acupuncture or other Eastern treatments may be familiar with some of this information, but the text is quite comprehensive, covering the spectrum of minor ailments such as nausea to major conditions like heart and liver disease. The authors discuss the connection between different parts of the body: "In traditional Oriental medicine, the ear corresponds with the kidney, with which it shares a similar shape. Kidney problems as a rule lead to ear problems, while hearing difficulties in turn show underlying urinary system imbalance." To remedy such imbalances, the authors recommend, for example, applying a compress of sesame or ginger tea to alleviate motion sickness. For the many people who have been confounded by a medical condition that doesn't respond to traditional medicine, this book may offer many helpful strategies, though clearly readers suffering from more serious, life-threatening diseases such as cancer or AIDS should not immediately shift to a macrobiotic way of life without consulting their physician. Overall, this is an excellent resource that should find a wide readership among people who want to feel healthier but have not been helped by traditional medicine.

It isn't written to offer dramatizations or win converts. This is a step-by-step manual for those who seek guidance to healing through macrobiotics. And you don't have to have a "condition" to benefit from the wealth of information found in this book. Use it for deeper understanding of your body's healing potential and see what it can do for you if you care to follow the advice. This book also offers guidelines on cooking and recipes, but buying a good cookbook as a companion will provide you with a well-rounded experience. Go ahead and try it. This is powerful stuff.

I recommend this book highly. Only problem I saw with it was that sometimes the organization of the material was a bit confusing and the language seemed like it was written by a non-english speaker.

This book is like 3 books in one: one on theories behind macrobiotics, one on healing remedies through healing diets, and also one on key recipes. It's user-friendly layout can be read front to back or you can use the index in the back to look up specific ailments, remedies or concepts. There's also a self-referencing set up in that if a good food or recipe is mentioned in one of the chapters and is written in capitals, that means you can find the recipe in the back of the book. I got this book to simply develop my macro library, and I ended up not only healing a few aches and pains, but trying out a few new recipes that I now love. This book will always stay with me. It's useful to anyone at any stage of their macro adventures!

This book, as all of the books I have read by Michio Kushi and Alex Jack, is a GEM
and truly is a path to total health.
I have found this book to be quite informative in letting you know there
is another way to help heal your own body and care for yourself.
It has brief synopses on health conditions, the causes, what to do about them,
recipes and so much more.
It informs you in a way that you are able to take your health into your own
hands by giving you knowledge on the choice of foods to eat that you may
not have known about previously. Thus, letting you know that the choice of foods
you eat either helps your body to heal and stay healthy or put your body in a spiral of decline.
This is a wonderful book to put in your personal home library for reference.
