The OHI San Diego mission was established in 1976 and is an oasis of serenity nestled in Lemon Grove – a nearby suburb of San Diego. The 2-acre campus consists of 60 guest rooms, a spacious lawn with comfortable lounge chairs, surrounded by well-manicured gardens where flowers bloom year round.

During your stay, take time to rest in the shade of giant trees. Or visit the chapel to meditate. Explore our organic garden and vibrant greenhouse. Stop at the Optimum Health Store where you can purchase inspirational books, personal care products, and more. Or grab your swimsuit and relax in the spa. Enjoy your time of relaxation and renewal at OHI San Diego – your “home” away from home.

"I found a true calling working at OHI after an unfulfilling career in International Development and Public Health. When you are able to change your diet, your mind and align with spirit, transformation truly takes place. It is an honor to hold space for our guests who are courageous enough to do the work it takes to heal and become whole again. This is so much more than just a job; it is a life purpose."

"Life is happening in and around us and god is in everything, therefore healing potential is everywhere. Our awareness of this gets so obscured through our routines, distractions and stresses resulting in imbalance and dis-ease. But our bodies are marvelous machines that are constantly repairing themselves; and given an optimal environment, they do this with ease. OHI is a sacred place for people to reconnect to their awareness of the miracle of life through powerful food and faith; and healing is rapid. Working here and witnessing miraculous transformations day after day is medicine for me as well as for all the friends who come here and power up."

"I feel honored to be a part of the OHI community…extending support and encouragement to our guests who begin to transform their health and well-being the moment they arrive here. So much of it has to do with the power of community. It’s true that we can do more than we think we can by doing it together. Fellow guests seem to bond quickly…encouraging and inspiring each other. This truly is a blessed place to work!"

“Working at OHI has opened my eyes more to the wholeness of healing beyond just a clean diet. I have met some incredible people since working here and love knowing that all of our team’s efforts help heal our guests. Even after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Food and Nutrition, I’ve gained so much knowledge here at OHI about how a raw diet heals the mind, body and spirit.”

"When I first started working at OHI, I didn't realize what I truly signed up for. It didn't take long for me to see the significant difference that OHI makes in peoples' lives. I see that now and want to be a part of it. The connection between the guests and the staff is like a family. I'm so blessed to be part of this wonderful atmosphere. To work here is very fulfilling and rewarding."
