Story by Evelyn Kissinger
From May 7–11, 2018, the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University will hold its annual five-day Natural Remedies & Hydrotherapy Workshop in the Seminary building (Tan Hall), room N150.
Participants of the workshop will learn the power of natural remedies and hydrotherapy; practical ways to implement natural remedies and hydrotherapy; and how to effectively share these principles with others.
The workshop provides over 30 hours of cutting-edge, evidence-based science with the Seventh-day Adventist lifestyle message through lectures, hands-on learning, lively discussions and Q & A sessions. Topics include the power and practical application of natural remedies for vibrant health, prevention and lifestyle intervention for lifestyle diseases, and neuroplasticity—how the brain changes. Hydrotherapy hands-on labs will show practical hot/cold treatments and massage. You will learn what to do, how to do it and how to get motivated to enjoy living a healthful lifestyle.
