"Gabriele Kushi's Kitchen is comparable to the best Macrobiotic schools." Anna M. cooking teacher and personal chef, MA
"With Gabriele’s help and guidance, healthy natural and whole foods have become the center of my diet and lifestyle and this way of life has become my new ‘normal’. I look forward to continuing working with her and am grateful to have her as my teacher and counselor." Cindy Lehman, Intuitive/Teacher, MN
“Gabriele Kushi's Long-Distance Wellness Program was a deep and powerful experience for me both in regards to physical health and in regards to tapping more deeply into my own intuition and understanding of self. I will carry with me for years to come the very practical knowledge of macrobiotics and yoga she imparted. Looking back, having worked with her so closely for such an extended period of time, allowed me to integrate macrobiotics as a holistic lifestyle into my every day living. In this way, she crafted our sessions and coaching to truly meet the needs of my body and soul. I am very grateful for her outstanding counsel!” Sarah H, Montana, USA
Hato Mugi (a/k/a Job’s Tears or Chinese barley) is a gluten free barley type whole grain. Scientists have identified a compound coixenolide that suppresses cancer cells and another, germanium that has anti-carcinogenic properties. Barley is also known to help with diabetes, by controlling the blood sugar level. Among other things, the rich fiber content helps reduce blood cholesterol, improves colon function and promotes weight loss.
