Is your family or household living and eating in a healthy manner? Is your family’s food consistently delicious and dynamic? Is there enough scope and variety in your cooking for each family member? Does a family member have a common condition or chronic disorder that medical treatment cannot relieve? Do you experience conflict or the inability to communicate in your family? Would you like to get along better and be on the same wavelength as your children and spouse? This type of consultation session may advise you in these questions.


What to Expect

The macrobiotic way of life provides the foundation for health and happiness at all levels: personal, family, social, and planetary. Family health and way of life consultations can reveal how to maintain optimal health and harness the healing power of food to improve sickness or chronic disease. During a consultation, you will review your family lifestyle, eating habits, challenges, health problems, and goals with an experienced macrobiotic teacher and counsellor. Our counsellors are trained in diagnostic methods from Eastern and Western traditions that can often identify imbalances long before they appear in standard health examinations. You will be provided with comprehensive dietary and lifestyle guidelines tailored to your family’s condition and situation. It includes recommendations for your daily diet and physical exercise, as well as special dishes, medicinal drinks, and compresses or other home remedies if necessary.

A consultation is highly recommended for anyone who has personal health questions and wishes to review their current condition. It is especially beneficial for beginning macrobiotic practitioners, as well as more experienced macrobiotic friends, as our understanding and practice need constant refinement to balance ever changing atmospheric, climactic, seasonal, social, and personal conditions.

An appointment can usually be made within one week or during your stay at one of the Kushi Institute of Europe’s programs or workshops. The consultation takes place at our office in central Amsterdam, easily reachable by public transport. A consultation generally takes 1 ½ - 3 hours. In the event you cannot come to the office, a counsellor may be available to visit you at your home. It is also possible to have a consultation in written form or by email. Consultations are available during the international study weeks that take place in Amsterdam or during the summer conference.

For personal development, we recommend you read books and articles on macrobiotics, or take part in the following:Art of Life School, Art of Cooking School, Women’s Health, Public Workshops or Lectures.
