2020 Long Beach Retreat Report and Testimonials
Life Aid Research institute has given me a path to take, a simplified road map to better health, both physical and mental. My medication list is dwindling, and I am sleeping better. Call it science, call it luck. I call it HEALTH.

Before signing up to participate in a retreat, please get checked out by your doctor to address any current and/or potential physical problems, to make sure travel and participation are recommended.
