Teachers

David McCarthy

David McCarthy

David is co-director and founder of the Kushi Macrobiotic School UK, a centre of excellence for teaching macrobiotics in both Ibiza and the UK. He is a Pharmacist and Internationally recognised macrobiotic teacher, counsellor and natural health advocate. 

When David's ten year old son, Jonathan, was diagnosed with a brain tumour and given just a few weeks to live, Davids standing as a Pharmacist was challenged in a big way.  There was nothing modern medicine could offer to cure his cancer and so David immediately turned to diet and a holistic approach for answers.  Jonathan defied the odds and live a full and happy life for almost another two years before suddenly passing away from an unrelated infection.  The gift Jonathan left his Father was a thirst for knowledge of diet and natural healing methods and a quest to educate himself and others.  For the last twenty years David has studied natural approaches to healing and the healing power of food, from Ayurveda to veganism.  Eventually his path lead him to macrobiotics. 

David has educated people from all over the world, from all walks of life, advising how to improve their health with better food and lifestyle choices. He continues to actively teach macrobiotics in Ibiza and the UK, throughout Europe and the USA and is dedicated to the promotion of personal and planetary health.

As a macrobiotic counsellor, David guides others to strengthen or recover their own health.
