“I'm amazed how much I've learned during these 4 weeks. It was very practical and worth every penny I paid. I recommend it to all who want to improve their health. It sure helped me a lot. Thank you, Natasha!”

“I had a weight problem and came to the program somewhat skeptical. But when I started practicing macrobiotics in just a few months I lost almost 20 pounds. And I became much healthier. Macrobiotics work, I know it now for a fact."
