Can someone requiring a gluten free diet be on a macrobiotic diet?

Bad idea. The "macrobiotic diet" is almost 60 years old. People died from its1960's form from scurvy. It was hyped in the 1980's by a physician who fooled himself into thinking he'd cured his cancer; despite the internet claims, he is dead of it. The principal 1990's proponent of using the diet against cancer died of cancer just afterwards. If you want a "natural" diet, get with a holistic evidence-based dr.
