Renewal: New Year, New You, New OHI (Part 2 of 2)


A very happy new year to our OHI community. Hopefully, you just received your January 2020 edition of the Optimum Health Institute Newsletter. If not, you can find a link to the digital version here.

Our theme for this issue is “Renewal: New Year, New You, New OHI”. In this edition, we feature articles that highlight one of our newest staff members, Danielle Demko, a senior facilitator at OHI San Diego; Susan Manning, an OHI Austin missionary; John Hagan, a long-standing and now life-long OHI community member; and Sharon Peck’s touching story of how the OHI Scholarship was a god-send in helping her through Lyme and Parkinson’s Diseases. We also feature a science-based article that focuses on the basics of Intermittent Fasting (IF) and how IF works within the OHI program. And lastly, my article where I share ways to ‘renew’ in the New Year.

Please keep reading for a preview of my “Renewal” article.

Renewal: New Year, New You, New OHI (Part 2 of 2)


The most striking change you’ll see at OHI is our change in guest capacity. At OHI Austin, we are working to change room configurations giving us the ability to increase capacity and have more guests on a weekly basis. At OHI San Diego, we are doing the opposite and decreasing guest capacity. Our goal at OHI San Diego is to create a more-intimate guest experience and focus on continuing improvements to our facilities and rooms.

Another exciting effort that is currently in development…we are creating a Contemplative Retreat for our OHI graduates. This Thursday-through-Sunday intensive retreat will take a deep-dive into one aspect of our program, such as engraining the practice of Alpha-meditation. Or it will focus on mindful movement or how to maintain the Maintenance Diet. Imagine getting the full benefits of our 3-week program related to spiritual practices mindfulness, diet or movement in just a 3-day intensive! You will build on your current experience and knowledge and go further into each level of physical, mental and spiritual realms. It will also serve as a quick reset for those who can’t attend for a full week.

And finally…we heard you loud-and-clear when you said you wanted a Referral Program. The more you refer friends and family, the more you will enjoy great discounts on our rates. We will be releasing details soon!

Take a Wellness Inventory as You Move into Spring

The renewing season is also a good time to take inventory. Take an inventory of your health and wellness. Have you gotten off track with your diet, spiritual practices, and exercise? A visit to OHI is the perfect way to reset. In addition to the physical and mental, we will help you reconnect with the spiritual as well. In our safe and sacred environment, you will nourish your spirit through daily reflection, meditation, and celebration.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Yours in prayer,

Robert P. Nees, Jr.,
