I'm with you on most of what you say here. I am also of the opinion that the mind/body aspect is critical. I am interested in your metabolic insights. I'm not too clear on what is most helpful. Off the cuff, I would guess blood sugar level (where eating mono saccaride helps stabilize the levels). What else? PM works for me if you are willing to share but not publicly.

Hi Rob,

Well, blood sugar level is only a thimble in the ocean of material I was pointing to in that particular bullet point. I am not sure how best to kick off a conversation with someone that is not studying macrobiotics & misogi-no-gyo for an extended period of time. Misogi, in and of itself is not something taught on the internet. However, for the sake of others reading along who have found themselves in this particular cul de sac I offer two books on macrobiotic theory that were helpful back in my early years of research:

The first book is "The Art of Peace - a new translation of The Book of Judo" While it has both some dated and fairly xenophobic passages that can be taken for what they were at the time (post WWII rhetoric) it may be just the slap in the face needed to wake up the average sleeping martial artist.


the second book, Acid and Alkaline has some very interesting material and is geared more towards the Western mind.


In any case, look for a private message at some point later on in the week.


I no longer participate in or read the discussion forums here on AikiWeb due to the unfair and uneven treatment of people by the owner/administrator.
