A dietary wellness system based on whole grains, vegetables, and fish.
According to practitioners, the macrobiotic way of life is holistic, taking into account all aspects of human life, and acknowledging the inter-relationship between body, mind, and spirit. Their philosophy states that, through the practice of the macrobiotic way of life, responsibility is taken for our health and actions, and that the choices we make, even seemingly simple ones such as which foods to eat, and what cleaning and body-care products to use, affect the world to a much larger degree than many people realize.
The Macrobiotic view also takes into account various other factors such as heritage, climate, season, age, and sex. Each person is unique, and therefore needs to make different choices to balance their present needs. As we continue to practice macrobiotics, our needs and some of our circumstances change, thus necessitating other adjustments to our food and lifestyle.
