Dr. Rath Health Foundation
The Dr. Rath Health Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to contribute to the improvement of human health on a global scale through research, education, and the defense of patient rights to choose natural remedies. The foundation was created in 2002 by Matthias Rath MD. Since then, it has become a driving force in promoting health education.
The Foundation is also the coordinating organization behind the Movement of Life, a non-profit movement that focuses on encouraging people to create hands-on pilot projects in areas such as health and nutrition—particularly in developing countries.
In March 2015, the Movement of Life team launched a school gardening project at the St. Agnes Centre for Education in Mbarara town, located in Western Uganda. The project involves growing fruit trees, vegetables, and medicinal plants. Since then, the project has grown to involve a total of more than 50 schools. In all, over 12 thousand fruit trees have now been successfully planted at the schools and in the surrounding areas, enthusiastically supported by children, parents and teachers alike.
“The micronutrient formulas we offer are scientifically developed and tested for their health benefits at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California.”
Dr. Rath is the last close colleague and friend of two-time Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling: “There is no doubt in my mind that I have been thinking about Dr. Rath as my successor.”
