In Memory of Michio Kushi

Michio Kushi

Holistic Holiday at Sea’s first “super star”  presenter, Michio Kushi, passed away December 28, 2014 at age 88.   He was one of the first proponents to teach of the powerful connection between one’s diet and environment … and one’s health. He published over 70 books and traveled throughout the world teaching about personal health through a natural way of living and eating.

His work was honored by the United States Congress and his archives of work are now housed at the Smithsonian Institute Museum of Natural History.

A true pioneer in the natural foods movement, teaching what was revolutionary in the 60’s, and introducing and popularizing such foods to the American public as whole grains, tofu, tempeh, miso, soy sauce, sea vegetables, and the wide spread use of organic vegetables.  Now considered mainstream, he was eons ahead of his time.

We thank you Michio as you are a true example of what one man can do in the world.

Michio, go with our deepest love and gratitude. Rest in peace for a job well done.

Sandy Pukel
Host of Holistic Holiday at Sea
