Develop a positive, optimistic attitude and visualize yourself the way you want to feel and be.
Focus on your health and healing rather than your condition or disease.
Ask for support from your family and friends, as it is vitally important. Request assistance.
Cook with and drink bottled spring water, preferably in glass containers or install a solid carbon water filter.
Finish eating dinner and all solid foods three hours before bedtime. Avoid lying down right after eating.
Chewing vegetarian/macrobiotic food very well is essential for proper assimilation to maximize energy and healing. To begin, chew each mouthful 15 times for 3 days, then increase to 25 chews per mouthful, progressing to 50 chews per mouthful. The more you chew, the more effective your health/macrobiotic program will be. For more information, read my book Power Eating Program.

Nutrition experts now acknowledge the Macrobiotic Diet as a sound program for total nutritional health. It more than satisfies the U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) for essential human nutrients. The exciting conclusion supported by nutritional science is that the same foods and beverages that will help you conquer excessive urination and incontinence will also prevent disease and the suffering and expense of illness.

The most important thing you can do to maintain and/or restore vibrant health is to eat whole, organic, and natural foods balanced for your unique needs. The following whole foods form the foundation for the Macrobiotic diet:


  • Delicious whole grains
  • Protein-rich beans and bean products
  • Fresh vegetables (especially root vegetables)
  • Strengthening sea vegetables
  • Flavorful fish
  • Beneficial oils and fats
  • Seasonal fruits
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Natural sweeteners
  • Healthful beverages

It is essential to use a large variety of whole foods and cooking styles in order to ensure that all key nutrients are supplied. These guidelines are designed to be adopted along with individualized guidance. They are intended to be utilized in conjunction with professional medical and health advice.
