The macrobiotic approach to health and wellness is so much more than just a healthy way to eat. It is often referred to as the hidden jewel in the health world, as countless numbers of people have transformed their health and lives by embracing this way of eating and living. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was one of the first people to use the word “macrobios” or great life.

There are numerous unique aspects to the macrobiotic approach that make it so effective in promoting health and harmony in day to day life. Warren will clarify what macrobiotics is about and how it can powerfully impact your life!

Overeating: How and Why to Eat Less
Taking in more than what we need is an imbalance. Overeating is the single most harmful lifestyle habit most people have in common. Eventually this habit makes us hard and rigid inside, causing us to lose our flexibility and making us acidic and fatigued.
