The health message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is often considered in isolation from the nineteenth century trends and events in which it arose. However, an understanding of this context is vital to any discussion of the relationship between Seventh-day Adventists health practices and science. This paper thus examines the social, political, religious and medical milieu of that time. It focuses particularly on the considerable overlap between religion and health which increased the receptivity of the individuals to the articulation of health principles by a religious organization.
