“I have taken classes from Jeanne at 7th Element for several years now and it has improved my well being and was the reason for many of the medications I was on to be able to stop using. She teaches so that the lay person can do the cooking at home and the foods are easy enough so that when you do cook them they still taste good when you cook them too!” – Cybal
“I always stock up for the week at the farmer’s market because I know I have healthy, yummy food to add to my meals which makes it easier to skip some steps during my busy week. I also take advantage of the meal delivery service because I can count on knowing that I’m eating a well balanced meal where all my nutritional needs are met and I am fully satisfied because of the size and the taste! These meals are usually things I wouldn’t make for myself, so it’s good to add the variety to the mix so I don’t get bored! I’m so glad to know there’s a company out there that I can trust to help me stay on my healthy path while keeping me fully satisfied! Thank you for all the information you pass along to continue to inspire people to stay on the macro lifestyle!” – Kate
“After 2 weeks on the diet, I feel and look years younger. I’ve lost weight and my energy has skyrocketed without working out. I’m already hooked on eating healthy. I never want to back to feeling lethargic.” – Scott
“Having had severe arthritis for 40+ years I then had the delightful experience to receive daily Macrobiotic meals. My crippled hands no longer ache and in fact have straightened out considerably. I was on heavy arthritic medications for years and I no longer have to take any medication for the arthritus… this makes for a very happy liver! As I approach 70 years young I face life actively and without the crunch and aches I once had!” – Valerie
“Seriously Yummy Food – – The versatile chefs at the 7th Element are fabulous!! It is hard to imagine that food this incredibly delicious and diverse can be so very healthy and reasonable!

The positive effects of the tasty and visually stunning food are quickly apparent: glowing complexion, better hair, improved clarity of thought.

The chefs and delivery folks are super friendly and professional too!! Thank you 7th Element!!!!” – Steve
“The macrobiotic meal service that you’ve been providing has provided us with a whole new perspective on “dieting”. Unlike fad diets that only deal with wieght loss and a specific condition, the macro food program is nutrition for your complete health – both physical and mental. All of my vitals have improved, with my good and bad cholesteral showing the most significant improvement. Althouth I didn’t have a weight “issue”, I did lose about 10 pounds (5% of my total weight) while enjoying generous portions of the delicious food.” – Richard, age 68
“Everyday I look forward to enjoying 7th Element’s creative, loving energized meals! I woke-up younger today then yesterday! Eating these balanced healthy delicious meals leaves me feeling ageless and beautiful! The food makes me feel alive and balanced. All the meals are exciting, colorful, delicious and the portions are filling. Best of all love is put into each dish! Eating a balanced Marco meal gives me an abundance of energy and clarity. Eating your meals everyday shows in my glowing hair, strong nails and healthy clear skin.” – Tammy
“I LOVE your teachings and I adore you! You are so inspiring, I look forward to the class so much. I think you are one of the most knowledgable people I’ve ever met, and I really want to learn as much as I can from you. I’ve read tons about nutrition, but I’ve been frustrated for years by all the conflicting theories about food and nutrition and weight/fat loss. I’ve struggled with my weight and portion control and healthy/unhealthy eating and food cravings and proper nutrition (especially when I had been working out hard) for most of my life. But that all changed when I met you! Thanks for the inspiration and the great advice!” – Judy
“I was sick for 5 years. After going from doctor to doctor the conclusion was that I had fibromyalgia. I suffered from chronic pain and chronic fatigue. For about 18 months I could barely make it to the bathroom. I shaved my hair because if I managed to make it into the shower I didn’t have the energy to dry my hair. Last summer a doctor brought my allergies to many different antibiotics to my attention and suggested I avoid foods that contain antibiotics and sulfas… then my neighbor recommended 7th Element to me. After being on the meals for 8 weeks it has changed my life. I am now working with a personal trainer twice a week, I get up early full of energy and my pain is minimal. My daughter looked across the dinner table one evening and commented that my face doesn’t even look sick anymore. My neighbors are so surprised to see my car gone as they have gotten accustomed to it always being parked in the driveway. I now have the energy to run around town doing errands. I recommend this macrobiotic diet to everyone I know.” – Sharman
The Nine Star Key, a form of Japanese astrology, is used in the Macrobiotic philosophies to understand our unconscious human tendencies – believing we are all born under one of nine numbers that represent various energies of the five elements that make up the universe. The five elements being tree, fire, earth, metal, and water. Both Jeanne and Patrick’s nine star key number is seven – their element is metal. Under the birth sign of metal their natural tendencies are strong in disciplined self-development, organizational ability and practicality.
Sharing great enthusiasm for life, health and happiness they decided that the special element that they offer people is their passion and energy – thus creating the name the 7th Element.
