If you have cancer, then I suggest you see a macrobiotic counselor near you and study macrobiotic cooking classes

    Great beginning!

    Amen to this type of consciousness!

    According to Johns-Hopkins University, the average person gets cancer to 10 times in their life. Most of those times they don’t even know they had it – that is how easy it is to cure cancer.

    My link tells how I cured stage 4 cancer. Please add it to the list if you’d like.

    The best to you.

    Together we can cure cancer – one person at a time!

    There are so many more. My prognosis was 6 months. Grade four cells, stage III gastric cancer. Spread from the lower part of the stomach to the colon. The key to reverse it was to act fast and follow exacltly by the book the MACRO counserlor’s suggestions. Effort, yes it was an effort, worthy, 8 years cancer free, and declared clinically cured by the same doctors who anticipated a soon death at age 43. Thanks Michio for your wise recommendations.

    It also has been 5 years for me with breast cancer. I have been teaching macrobiotic cooking here in Perth, West Australia for nearly 15 years. I went through my “c” story during my macrobiotic adventure and also during my studies with David Briscoe to do become a macrobiotic counselor. What a time and a learning experience to have this happen then – the beauty is I got to experience first hand moving from a much wider macrobiotic diet to a healing diet and there is nothing like learning through experience. From that a 12-week course was born that i run once a year called SAD-GLAD. It is always full and each person in the course has the experience of moving into the mb diet, then to spend 4 weeks on a healing diet and gradually widen out. It gives them the tools to learn how to tailor and adjust the diet for any conditions that come (and go) in life. I love my job – I love macrobiotics and although I am a lone force here in West Australia, there is a budding community of beautiful like-minded people learning to cook and to live in a more “balanced imbalance” and life is great!

    Dear Phiya,
    I have stomach cancer. I am on the 7th day with brown rice and sesame only (#7 Diet).
    I just read the books and follow it myself without any advisor.
    I also learned that I need to take Dentie powder as Master Oshawa recommended too. But I don’t know what kind of Dentie I can use, is that the toothpaste? Please email me so I can learn from you directly. Please help. I really appreciate!
