What Guests Are Saying

I have been coming to OHI regularly for over 35 years, and highly recommend the program here. I credit the diet and classes with helping me maintain good health and proper weight all that time. I just feel so much younger than my actual age of 77.
John Worcester
Optimum Health San Diego was an amazing experience, you have to go to yourself to truly appreciate. A perfect environment to relax and allow your body to heal -mind, body, and soul. I would recommend this program to everyone in my life. You owe it to your body to go through a program like this at least once a year. Thank You OHI for an amazing experience, can't wait to come back.
Carlos Gonzalez
I came to reset my health and body. NOT disappointed!!! What a beautiful experience of community supporting each other through the incredible learning process of maintaining a healthy body. I came for one week and my goal is to finish week 2 & 3 in 2024. Greatest gift you can give yourself.

Meet the Staff

OHI facilitator, Alaina Gallegos, smiles as she welcomes you to your wellness center retreat.

"I found a true calling working at OHI after an unfulfilling career in International Development and Public Health. When you 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."

OHI facilitator, Jennifer Inman, helps create world-class wellness and fitness retreats for you.

OHI community member since 2019

"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."

OHI facilitator, Grace Wong, helps make OHI one of the best wellness retreats in the US.

"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!"

OHI facilitator, Carla Boeck, helps you find wholeness at OHI’s wellness and fitness retreats.

“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.”

OHI’s director of guest services, Guillermo Romero, focuses on creating holistic retreats for you.

"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."
