Country Life Natural Food Store and Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant has proudly served the citizens of Columbus, GA since 1969. Doctors Calvin and Agatha Thrash were dissatisfied with the results they were seeing in their practice, and began to search for natural methods of helping the sick. With the assistance of those more acquainted with natural healing methods, they opened a small store that would carry the items, and serve the food, they were learning would help people regain their health. Over 50 years later, that small store and restaurant has grown into a Columbus landmark which serves nearly 1,000 people per week, and has been named by the local residents as the “Best Health Food Store” and “Best Health Food Restaurant” for multiple years.

The store contains over 4500 different health food items in various categories. The restaurant serves lunch Sunday through Thursday; view the menu and prices under the Restaurant page.

In 1971, Drs. Thrash purchased 200 acres of property in Seale, Alabama, and began Uchee Pines Institute, dedicated to helping those suffering from the lifestyle issues of today by using simple, natural methods such as exercise, vegetarian nutrition, massage, herbs and supplements, and firm faith in the Divine Healer.  The Lifestyle Center helps people with real problems, like cancer, hypertension, chronic pain, high blood pressure, cholesterol reduction, weight loss, and smoking cessation.

Research indicates that about 90% of these lifestyle-related diseases could be prevented by following an optimal lifestyle.  To assist in the process of lifestyle change, Uchee Pines has a dedicated staff of physicians and Lifestyle Counselors who will help you develop a specific lifestyle plan for your individual situation.
