Claiming Your Healing Transformation
From its inception in 1976, the Optimum Health Institute (OHI) holistic healing program was designed to empower guests to take control of their own lives by giving them the tools they required to achieve a healthy balance in body, mind and spirit .
Day by day and week by week, people learn to flow with the healing rhythm of detoxifying the body, quieting the mind and renewing and rejuvenating the spirit.
In a safe space of encouragement and respect, OHI’s caring team supports guests by first inspiring and motivating them to make healthier choices in their life. For many, it’s their first experience eating a completely raw, live, organic vegan diet, or coming together with like-minded others in spiritual fellowship.
People learn exactly how stress, anger, a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet take a toll on their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. They also learn how to substitute healthier, beneficial choices that lead to permanent positive change.
Through in-depth classes and group exercises, guests are encouraged to explore healthy new ways of eating, moving, thinking and being. Quiet time to meditate, reflect and integrate all the positive and life-changing information is scheduled into each day.
Healthy transformation takes place over a period of 21 days, with the option of doing the entire program at once, or choosing to do a week at a time as the guests’ schedules allow.
The first week, the focus is on the holistic body, mind and spirit connection. To truly be healthy, all three components of a person must be in balance. For instance, a body revved up on sugar makes it difficult for the mind to focus clearly. Detoxifying the body includes a three-day juice fast.
During the second week, guests receive the tools they require to help make healthier choices in all aspects of their lives. Learning how to create nutrient-packed sprouts and fermented foods; planning healthy menus, and experiencing the rejuvenating impact of conscious breathing all help guests make smarter and healthier lifestyle choices.
For the final week at OHI, guests learn how to continue to follow the program when they return home. Everything from the best knives for chopping vegetables to the most effective appliances for juicing and blending to how to get the entire family on board are shared during the third week.
Tying together all three weeks are the core classes and activities, like circle time before all meals, daily wheatgrass juicing, gentle exercise to start the day and a release ceremony, where guests can burn a list of anything from the past that no longer serves them. A closing class provides guests with a helpful review of information and tips for achieving and maintaining optimum health. Friday morning testimonials are an opportunity to share inspirational stories of healing. Then, it’s a celebration of fellowship and laughter for Friday Night Live, when guests and members of the enthusiastic OHI team entertain with songs, a skit, or other talents. Saturday evening is movie night, where friends old and new gather to enjoy an inspirational film.
