ABOUT: George Ohsawa recovered from tuberculosis of the lung and colon in 1911 using a diet recommended by Dr. Sagen Ishizuka. Ohsawa was so grateful for his new lease on life that he dedicated the rest of his life to continuing Dr. Ishizuka's work. He used the word "macrobiotic," joining the Greek words macro, meaning great, and bios, meaning life, as found in his reading of Hufeland's work. His intention was to create a diet and philosophy to help people live life to the fullest. Ohsawa was inspired to formalize macrobiotics by the teachings of Kaibara Ekiken, Andou Shoeki, and Mizuno Namboku as well as those of Sagen Ishizuka and his disciples Nishibata Manabu and Shojiro Goto. According to macrobiotic proponents, many of the long-lived traditional cultures, such as the Incas and the Chinese in the Han Dynasty, used the macrobiotic methodology. Ohsawa drew from Asian and Japanese folk medicine to create his version of this philosophy of health. Whole foods, such as brown rice, are central to a macrobiotic diet, and many of the first customers and owners of the alternative food stores were students of macrobiotics. In the 20th century, influential teachers emerged, such as the Kushis (who emigrated to the United States from Japan after World War II), who distilled the wide-ranging ideas and interpreted them for modern, urban, and industrialized life. Lima Ohsawa was George Ohsawa's wife; she taught numerous macrobiotic cooking classes, wrote a macrobiotic cookbook called The Art of Just Cooking, and was sought after for her palm healing, as described in Practical Guide to Far Eastern Macrobiotic Medicine.
