About us

The Strengthening Health Institute (SHI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of personal and planetary health through macrobiotics. The SHI was founded in 1997 by internationally-renowned macrobiotic counselor Denny Waxman. In 2002, it was incorporated as a 501c3 organization. The SHI aims to:

  • Empower people to make their own wise choices for life and health
  • Create the macrobiotic model for the present and future and move macrobiotics into the mainstream
  • De-mystify and simplify macrobiotics so that it is available to everyone

What is macrobiotics? Macrobiotics is an orderly approach to diet and lifestyle. The SHI promotes a plant-based diet centered around whole grains, vegetables, sea vegetables, nuts and seeds, and fruit, among other foods, as a way to attain and maintain health and well-being. At the SHI, we believe in eating real food, eating local food, and eating with the seasons. To this end, we offer a variety of seminars, classes, lectures, and events to teach people how to take responsability for their health and their lives.
