Nutrition Counselling

Ma Deva Pyari „had“ the first contact with Macrobiotic in N.  York city, 1969, when  the Canadian painter and later gallerist  Syd  Menkes  (at the time “her” lover and  the one with  whom  she  first  experienced  tantric sex)   invited  her  for  a  lunch  at  the Zen Temple, the macrobiotic restaurant of the city.

 

The friend Neuza Marcondes, with whom Deva Pyari worked  then  (nowadays  also  a painter in Rio de Janeiro) bought the book “Zen Macrobiotic” from George Oshawa and the  two of them  began to  practice the  dialectic system of  keeping  young and living long! And Pyari still eats so!

 

The macrobiotic concept comprehends the universal  laws  as  the  inter-relation of the principles of yin and yang: the day and the night, cold and hot,  man  and  woman, fire 

and water, positive and negative, life and death … the  complementary opposites.  And  the Universe is seen as the macro-cosmos, which reflect  itself  in  each  human being: the micro-cosmos.

 

Thus, the macrobiotic system includes all  dimensions  of  Existence.  Consequently,  it 

takes  immense  care  of  what  we  ingest,  stating  that  we  are  what  we  eat,  and 

establishing  yin/yang relations  for food, which  are however absolutely relative, like in Einstein’s theory of relativity.  This  simply means  that  each food  is yin  in relation  to some other and still yang in relation to some other!

 

Further, it says that rice, when organic and whole,  has  the  most  similar  cell  to  the 

human ones, which explains its healing power! However, rice is yin in relation to  meat and eggs, for example, but yan in relation to any other grain, or to beans,  vegetables, greens and fruits. 

 

Oshawa states that following this principle it’s possible to bring  any  body  to  balance, even sick ones - which is actually the way to healing! At the same time  Oshawa  says it’s easy to heal any psychic disturbance or any emotion, whichever  violent it  may be, as everything is taken as  a  question  of  balancing  the  yin/yang  relationships  in  our

micro - universe. 

 

And we “should” start with “our” nourishment, with what we eat!

 

Hence, he affirms that there are no incurable disease,  because  the  yin/yang  balance can always be restored, and mostly at the table!

 

There are many people who though having  decided  for  being vegetarian,  give  it  up after a short while, for feeling weak and often prone to diseases,  sometimes even for having got really sick! This comes from the fact that the body needs  to be  in balance, which is easily attained even by habits of malnutrition, as the body goes on following a certain kind of own “nature”, which  comes  from  the  unconscious  or  subconscious.

Nevertheless,  as  we  decide  for  a  radical nutritional  change ,  the  body  looses  its orientation and a vegetarian way of living needs new patterns  of  balance,  which  are attained only as we understand the mechanisms of balancing the small universe of our bodies.

                                                                                                                    

 

Ma Deva Pyari  “works”  since  1971  with  natural  macrobiotic  healing,  having  cured people even from cancer or diabetes, in a space shorter than 10 days.

 

She  uses  nowadays  also with the concepts for the 4 types of blood from  the north-american  Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo,  added  by  her  own  concept of Corpoterapia© and Louise Hay’s positive affirmations.

 

Her  sessions  on  nutritional  counselling besides favouring natural healing of all kind of diseases, offers a healthy  and  thus  long-term  change  for  vegetarian  habits,  which therefore provides a long - and moreover, healthy life!
