In Sheri-Lynn's Own Words
The macrobiotic way of life is a traditional approach to nutrition, activity and lifestyle that has been practiced throughout many cultures of the world for many thousands of years. Its proof is seen by how it has helped the wellbeing of so many thousands of people, including today in the so-called "Blue Zones," where people live the longest, and are the healthiest in the world.
Even More Important Today
Cancer, heart disease, diabetes and a long list of other diseases are killing our population. Obesity is on the rise. Our commercial foods are manufactured by companies that use chemicals, preservatives, colorings and GMO ingredients to bolster profits.
We all know you are what you eat. The real truth is that you are what your food ate.
In Native American culture there is a saying that “we are all related”; all things live in relationship to one another. Living in harmony with the earth and our environment has meaning and purpose, not only for us but the whole earth, its peoples, and all that is.
When we engage in a truly healthy lifestyle we walk in what the Native Americans call “walking in beauty”. Walking in beauty means learning to nourish oneself with whole foods from the earth that have been blessed with mineral rich soil, clean rain and sun shine in the exact season and location where you live. A person who is in an ideal state of wellbeing and health is actually walking with the earth mother and is in balance, while one who is not is sick or diseased and out of balance.
Whether you are new to macrobiotics or it has been an ongoing practice for you, the Macrobiotic Global Institute offers educational programs designed to provide you with knowledge, encouragement, and skills to improve your quality of life.
