In this workshop you will be introduced to the macrobiotic understanding of food as medicine, both from the traditional understanding of food as energy as well as the modern nutritional perspective of the benefits of plant-based diets.
Using as a foundation the traditional medicine concept of the five transformations, or stages of energy, you’ll gain deep understanding of how plant foods such as whole grains, vegetables, beans, and others contribute to health and how the modern diet based on meat and processed foods contributes to sickness.
Practical guidelines for adopting a plant-based diet will be featured, as well as suggestions for using food as medicine, including home remedies prepared from common plant foods, to cancel the negative effects of the modern diet.
You will get insights into:
- Understand how you can heal with food
- Learn what is the optimal diet for health and well being
- Learn how you can use specific foods for specific conditions
- Learn simple natural home remedies
