Doctors Calvin and Agatha Thrash founded Uchee Pines Institute in 1970 as a place to provide healing in a hurting world. God gave these pioneers a vision for demonstrating, through their practices of internal medicine and pathology, that the remedies of the Great Physician are found in nature.
They accept people suffering from various degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Using primarily nutrition, exercise, hydrotherapy, massage, and herbs, the staff create individualized programs for each patient, which are carried out under the supervision of one of the staff physicians. A lifestyle counselor is also assigned to each guest, and he or she becomes the guest’s therapist, teacher, prayer partner, and friend.
Uchee Pines also offers a medical missionary training program. The school offers two courses with one goal in mind—to prepare medical missionaries to bring the gospel of good health to those perishing for want of something better.
Besides the lifestyle center and training programs, Uchee Pines reaches out through its auto repair shop, industrial building, organic agriculture program, and a radio station. And off-campus, in Columbus, Georgia, the team ministers to others through the Country Life Vegetarian Restaurant and Natural Food Store. This also serves as the training ground for those interested in health food work and city missions.
Country Life Vegetarian Restaurant and Natural Food Store, operated by Uchee Pines Institute in Columbus, Georgia, received the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA) 2009 Best of Columbus Award. The USCA made the announcement in June, with Country Life winning in the Independent Grocery Stores category. Read the full story on netASI.
