Macrobiotics is not a diet. Macrobiotics is an orderly approach to diet and lifestyle. Through principles of harmony, balance and change we continually learn how to make healthier choices in our eating habits, diet, activity and lifestyle. We plan our meals around grains, vegetables, soups and a variety of other plant based foods.

Macrobiotics is also based on the understanding that spiritual health, the development of endless appreciation for all of life, leads to mental, emotional and physical health. The healthy choices we each make on a daily basis also benefit society and the environment.

The Strengthening Health Institute (SHI) was founded in 1997, by Denny Waxman, to teach others how to create lasting health and how to discover and live fully their life's dream. In 2002, SHI was incorporated as a not-for-profit school with a mission to:

Empower people to make their own wise choices for life and health.
Create the model for macrobiotic education for the present and future and to move macrobiotics into the mainstream.
Demystify and simplify macrobiotics to allow access to a much larger number of people
