Acquired immune deficiency syndrome is a severe breakdown in the body's protective system. Someone with AIDS doesn't have the normal immune protective factors that fight off common bacteria and viruses. Such common maladies as colds and flu can be very dangerous for someone with deficient immune responses. Without major changes in the immune system function, AIDS is fatal.
A very careful approach to the macrobiotic diet must be adhered to in order to overcome the severe debility of AIDS. Included in the diet should be 50-60% whole cereal grains, without the use of flour products, such as cakes, cookies, breads, pancakes, etc. Miso soup 1-2 times per day should include seaweed and onions as well as other vegetables. Cooked vegetables should be used from root, squash and leafy green categories—no raw salads. Beans cooked with seaweed especially kombu, should be taken in small volume (5-15 %). Nuts and fruits should be avoided temporarily. Also avoid meat, chicken, eggs, oil, and sugars (see diet section).
Regular shiatsu treatments will stimulate the important natural defenses of the body in preventing AIDS. For someone with AIDS, the treatment must be adjusted according to their condition. If they are strong, then a vigorous treatment can be given. If they are weak, then a light shiatsu or palm healing can be given.
