Scott Ohlgren bio
Former User of Spam and Velveeta Cheese
Scott Ohlgren is a 48-year old enthusiastic student, teacher, and beneficiary of the natural healing paradigm. Raised in the heart of Wisconsin ("The Dairy State"), where Spam and Velveeta cheese were considered part of the 4 Food Groups, his introduction to the diet-symptom, diet-health connection came just in time. At the age of 19, tired of acne, sinus problems and tetracycline, a friend shoved a book into his hands, saying, "Change your diet, and those symptoms will go away." Five weeks later, the symptoms were gone.
What Scott learned, by sheer luck, was the effect that real food and cleansing could have on the body's ability to heal.
From that point on, periodic cellular cleansing has been a central part of his life and is the major reason why he hasn't used a single antibiotic or prescription drug since 1976.
He has since become an outspoken proponent, lecturer, and author for a drug-free, pain-free, and disease-free life, using real food nutrition as one's "main medicine cabinent."
In 1985, Scott studied whole food nutrition at the 9-month Kushi Institute Graduate Program. He became a certified Rolfing Practitioner (Rolf Institute, Boulder, Colorado) in 1988. His writings started appearing in the Bay Area Monthly and Cell Tech International, and was interviewed in Success Magazine (July, 1998). He has sold over 90,000 tapes, videos and books on the diet/disease, diet/health connection. His first book, The 3Phase Manual (published by ColorQuest, Durango, CO) sold over 68,000 copies. He is currently board-certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Each month, his online 28-day NACHO Cleansing Program takes hundreds of participants through the same process that he learned 25 years ago.
Scott was the keynote speaker at the 2003 annual meeting of the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT), held in Snowbird, Utah.
Scott's mission is to create "the La Leche League of nutritional understanding". His passion, which is obvious in his videos and live events, is to have people prove to themselves--to have the physical experience--of this connection between their current symptoms and the food that they have been eating for decades. That the role of healer belongs not to those from hospitals or laboratories, but is actually as close to home as hand to mouth. To show that our job -- as parents, teachers, and leaders--is to return the responsibility for our health back to where it has always belonged.
He is currently touring with the latest book, Cellular Cleansing Made Easy: Learn to Regenerate Your Health Without Giving Up Food, Sex, or Sanity.

In his mid-twenties, shortly after reading Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, by Dr. Weston Price, Scott took off on a trip around the world that lasted just short of three years. From 1979–1982, he hitch hiked a few months through eastern Europe, a year through Africa, sailed for four months on a 41-foot sloop off the coast of Madagascar, and then six months living in Australia. He did a similar seven-month voyage again in 1996, this time with his wife, Gael, going back and visiting many of the friends he had made 17 years earlier.
Scott paraglides, skis, and has been a scuba diver since 1980. He and Gael live in Boulder, Colorado with cat Lila, Bo the dog, and an outside sauna and cold plunge. His next big acquisition will be a goat and a few chickens, to mess with the dog's mind.
