Here at the Strengthening Health Institute, more commonly known as SHI Macrobiotics now, we like to think of ourselves as much more than simply a macrobiotic school. Although, we do pride ourselves on creating genuinely valuable courses and programs that help people to learn more about food, health, and how to keep up with all of the information essential for personal and planetary health.
This knowledge comes from decades of studying by SHI Macrobiotics founder, Denny Waxman. He has worked with all leading macrobiotics teachers across the globe since the 1960’s when macrobiotics made it’s initial appearance in Western civilization. The information is then shared at SHI Macrobiotics through education and community involvement. We strongly encourage you to attend one of our events and start getting around like-minded people!
“Here at SHI Macrobiotics, we teach health as a direction, not a fixed state.”
Live a Healthy Vibrant Life!
There are enormous resources spent on health care each year, yet the overall health of humanity is declining. All the while, the awareness of the connection between diet and health is spreading. As a result, this increased awareness results in everyone understanding they have the ability to create their own health.
Add to your diet, don’t subtract
Start with a primarily plant-based diet
Get exercise outdoors regularly
After many years studying and leading the Kushi Institute, Denny decided it was time to update his perspective on an inclusive macrobiotic philosophy. Now, the Strengthening Health Institute allows people to learn that exact approach as it is a focal point of his approach (and a major difference between macrobiotics practice of the past).
What is macrobiotics? Macrobiotics is a system of holistic principles and dynamic practices that guides choices in nutrition, activity, and lifestyle for physical, emotional, mental, social, and environmental health.
