Pilot, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – March 2018)

It is at times tough both emotionally and physically, but all of the staff, both the hosts and the local staff members, without exception made it a very easy course to navigate, welcoming you into the N.I.H family from the very first minute through to the end and further more. There are certainly more highs than lows but all are needed exactly where and when they come along and when they do you are amongst friends. I highly recommend N.I.H and will personally be a regular returning guest.

Portugal (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2018)

It was an amazing 10 days retreat! It’s the best thing we can do for our true being and to be more aware of our life and the issues that are blocking our lives. A good opportunity to be focused in the present moment and to reflect about what we want to change and improve in our lives and to re-learn the true meaning of life. Learned a lot with all group and hosts are amazing. Loved it and could spend much more days here for sure.

Laura Gonsalves

Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2018)

I came into the program with a basic mindset of losing weight and reconnecting with my higher self, but what I gained was so much more. Being in such a supportive and peaceful environment nourished my journey towards many different aspects of self-love and care, something I had lost touch with over the course of many years. What I achieved was not only accomplished from my own willpower and dedicated focus but the support of the loving staff from the retreat. Thank you NIH!

Jennifer Ciarlo

Financial Adviser, USA (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – January 2018)

I came here on the brink of breakdown searching for breakthrough without the tools to get there. I was lost in my head, overwhelmed with fear and dread and out of touch with my feelings and spirit. I was welcomed like a friend had arrived, nurtured, and fed well. Then the work began and through the process, I re-found myself. By fasting, guided meditation, one on one sessions, classes, I found clarity, presence and a plan. I feel like I’ve been given a clean slate to start again with all the support I need to thrive. I am forever grateful.

Eve Wilson

Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – January 2018)

I have never experienced anything like this fasting retreat and it was exactly what my body and spirit need after the past few years recovering from Breast Cancer. Although I found fasting challenging at times, I feel amazing, have lost weight and feel completely detoxified… it is likely I will be back again in the next few years! I absolutely loved the home made broth, juices, smoothies, soups and teas! I especially loved the nature walks, workshops, ceremonies, yoga, sauna, meditations and overall heart-felt energy of the retreat! The staff were amazing and would do anything for me, including getting a frog out of my bathroom at night! An unforgettable retreat experience!

Brook Valentine

Teacher Assistant, Australia

The one week I invested with NIH will give me a lifelong change to my attitude towards my health and wellbeing. Just the kick start I needed, amongst a genuine, supportive, loving team.

Paula Rance

Farmer, Australia

I honestly believe I would not be where I am at today with the love that I feel if I had not come to NIH in Bali. I have not only worked on myself physically, but I have worked on the emotional and spiritual. The peace I feel within is amazing. I cannot give enough thanks to all the staff at NIH, you have made my stay unbelievable and worth every moment I have been here. Love you all.

Samantha Barridge

Pilates Instructor and Makeup Artist, Australia

The healing I have experienced on the T.T retreat in the last 2 weeks is beyond words. The team here at N.I.H are truly incredible and I could not think of anyone else I would want to support me during this amazing time. It has absolutely changed my life. I cannot thank them enough.

Cory Kelly

Private Contractor – Social Media, USA

I came here without expectation and I’m leaving with a greater appreciation of self-care and nutrition. The entire staffs are available, friendly and supportive. You will find all your needs met as you go on this journey. Once you gain awareness you don’t lose it – you can only choose to ignore it!

Sandy Gallagher

CEO & Speaker, USA

This is the place to go you want to do a serious results driven detox/fast. They thought of everything and had the skill and compassion to address everything this has been a huge turning point and awareness and I am so grateful Becky and Karin. You are A++.

Kath Gardiner

Teacher Aide / Learning support, Australia

I came here feeling angry, sad and alone and through the amazing healing sessions with Kate and Becky, I feel my heart has grown and I am now feeling happy to be who I am and know that that is enough. I thank you. You are all in my temple X

Tricia Jensen

Retired, Bali & Australia

I was a bit of a reluctant starter in the process as it was my husband who really wanted to come. However, I knew my eating was out of control and I was interested how the Detox Superfood would work. Well, what an enthusiastic convert I am! Whilst 7kg weight loss is great, I am more excited about the mental and spiritual changes I have experienced in a very safe environment. Thanks NIH. We will be back!

Juliana Souza

Store Manager, New Zealand

You guys rock (star, star, star). Awesome staff, great facilities, great communication, and beautiful people with lots of love to give. Thank you very much for changing my life. The program was good that even fasting for 3 days I had energy to climb the volcano. Love!

Jemma Allman

Receptionist & Barista, Australia

The 10 Day Fasting program in Bali has changed my life and has got me exited about my future… I can’t thank the loving and enthusiastic staff for guiding me through my special journey.

Judy Powell

Manager, Australia

The 10 days Fasting Detox program in Bali was absolutely awesome for me and I’ve never done a detox before. It is clear that NIH put a lot of time and energy into the planning of the program and it is executed brilliantly. It is also clear that they put their heart and soul into this retreat. The Balinese support staff are all beautiful. The environment is serene and peaceful. I feel absolutely amazing on all levels!

Justin Petrak

Operations Manager, Australia

A truly mind, body and soul experience like I never expected. I’m eternally grateful to Kate & the whole team at Natural Instinct Healing.

Ashlee Cremasco

Mine Worker, Australia

Coming here I was really looking forward to physical benefits of what I thought a fasting detox was. Well I am so elated to say that it was so so much more than that. A credit to fabulous staff at NIH, my experience here has been a detox and lesson of my body on all levels; physical, mental, spiritually and mostly emotionally. I have learned so much about myself and have been able to make the connection between physical and emotional body and why I feel the way I do weather is good or bad. Coming to the retreat I wasn’t in a great place. Leaving the retreat I feel in touch with my body and mind, spiritually and emotionally. This has been the most positively life changing experience and I’m so glad I came. I am so grateful and now heading down the road to happiness and health following my heart the whole journey. Thank you NIH from my heart.

Nicholle Chandler

Self Employed, USA

My entire life I have had digestive issues. I came to this retreat with no expectations, hopes, etc, because nothing I’ve tried in the past had helped. However, this retreat was the best medicine I have ever gifted myself. My body feels 110 % better than when I first arrived. I lost 16 lbs 7.2 kilo all from my gut. I learnt that what I thought was healthy eating, was actually not nutritious at all. I’m leaving the retreat with new tools, food knowledge and the confidence that I’ll succeed back home with the best lifestyle change I’ve ever done. Thank you NIH, Becky & Lola!

Jacqui Barnsley

Disability Services Coordinator, Australia

Becky and Lola are such supportive, loving and knowledgeable souls. This program, with their guidance, has been just what my body, and mind, needed right now! I feel amazing and grateful.

Leisha Somers

Finance/Administration, Australia

I completed a 7 day program with NIH. The results were amazing, weight loss 4.7kg, glowing skin, no fluid retention or bloating. The detox program is thorough and the team provides lots of support. The tools + information that I have to take away with me will give me a long healthy life. I will return!

Jennifer Knight

Contracts Advisor Manager, Australia

This is the second time back and it was a good as the first! The biggest thing for me was the tools I received during my stay and then being able to implement them into my life which has resulted in an overall 10kg weight loss without even being overweight. It’s a good example of that fresh start you get with the program which leaves you with a much happier, healthy lifestyle. Thanks NIH.

Patrick Herde

Grazier, Australia

I haven’t been very kind to my body over the years. My time at Natural Instinct Healing I feel I corrected a lot of my wrong doings to my body and has given me some habits to improve my health into the future.

John Harding


I am still overjoyed with my time with your business in Ubud, it was just what I needed, the one on one counselling was completely unexpected and had the most positive impact on me, this is after consulting with professionals in Melbourne and other wellness centres in Australia. Lola took me to places that I have never talked about or discussed with anyone, they were locked up and hidden in the back of my mind. I am no longer haunted by these thoughts I feel free without guilt or fear and am bound to benefit from your fantastic program into the future and beyond.

Gabrielle Bibby

Management Consultant, Australia

I came with no expectations, but with a need to rest, recoup, and revive. Every aspect of my experience was fabulous – from the airport pickup in the dead of night, to the accom, the staff, the surrounds, the program. I felt supported in a gentle way. On leaving I have some insights and ideas on how to easily incorporate this into my day-to-day life. Don’t over think it… Just do it!

Penny Jenner

Executive Manager, Australia

Having successfully completed the 10 day detox I now feel a more grounded and complete person. The connection between mind, body and soul is reinforced and supported throughout the program. The retreat hosts are fully supportive and provide guidance to individuals and at group level, making the journey an incredible learning experience. The staff are fantastic!

Brad Walker

Mining Team Leader, Australia

There is so much more in the program than meets the eye. If you are after a holistic detox, and continued better life afterwards, this is the journey you need to take.

Madonna Bertini

Hairdresser, Australia

How would I describe Natural Instinct Healing..? Life changing, amazing, and fabulous! All you need in order to do a retreat is an open mind and the desire to change!

Lindy Ellis

Social Worker, Australia

This program was recommended by a dear friend who attended last year, and I came purely on her recommendation. It has been way, way beyond my expectation. I was feeling emotionally drained, tired, bloated, and basically exhausted when I came. I have now lost 5.3 kilos but far more importantly I feel spiritually and mentally wonderful and so happy within myself. My skin is so clear and I look forward to an emotionally and physically healthy life ahead, filled with love and passion for life. Thank you Pat and Kate you are both so awesome.

David Meldrum

Mining CEO & Engineer, Australia

I was a little skeptical at first as I was encouraged into the retreat by my partner, but boy-oh-boy no skepticism now! This has been a total reset for me. I have lost weight, changed my view of food and the importance of healthy eating, cleared my mind and healed so many wounds. Almost certainly the best investment I have ever made in me!

Amber Pescud

Financial Accountant, Australia

The detox program is an amazing insight into body, mind, and soul. The hosts were incredibly supportive and very knowledgeable on the interaction of the above three. The tools they equip you with during the program will be implemented most enthusiastically when in the ‘real world’. It was a loving and insightful experience.

Jaye Shean

Senior Operator Manufacturing, Australia

For 15 years I have been on a journey to find out who I am. I have tried everything medical and alternative to heal myself emotionally and to lose weight. This retreat is not like a fad diet or a temporary fix; it has literally transformed my life forever. The idea of going back to living the way I used to is incomprehensible. Kate and Pat, I really feel like you saved my life. Thank you!

Jeanette Hindmarsh

Psychologist, Australia

I am so pleased I have put myself into your capable hands – your integrity and passion are reflected in your comprehensive approach to covering every single possibility and need my body needed during such an extraordinary experience.

Peter Baker

Photographer & Videographer, Australia

This felt like perfect timing for me & I feel fortunate to have landed in the perfect place. I was able to de-stress in a beautiful environment with fantastic hosts.

Magdalena Von Saleski

Band Manager, Germany

You guys rock and the world needs more people like you who provide a place and retreat where someone gets to heal and grow on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level. I wish you the best of luck and will certainly see you again. Much love and happiness – I can help spread it now thanks to you.

Sally Godfrey

Ceramicist, Australia

I cannot put into words just how fantastic the NIH retreat is. This is the best gift that you could give yourself and your mind, body, and soul will thank you for it. The setting is a little paradise and the perfect place to unwind and focus on your healing. Kate and Pat are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and they go ‘above and beyond’.

Frida Josson

Student, Sweden

This week been amazing. Before I come to the retreat I didn’t think that you could actually could change that much i just seven days, but now i know! Pat and Kate are phenomenal and I don’t think that I could do this without them.

Jacquelyn Hunt

Resources Village Manager, Australia

The inner peace and self contentment I feel now is priceless. The life tools I will take home and put into practice are so exciting. Lets all get our raw and organic on!

Jane Scanlon

SAP Change & Training Specialist, Australia

I have found this retreat profound in what it gave me physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. I feel very inspired in what I have learnt and look forward to working with many of the key principles in my daily life.

Matilda McLean

Advertising Manager, Australia

I felt good before but nothing compares to how my mind, body and spirit feels now. I will be back so Kate, Pat, and Becky can help me continue to take my life in its best direction!

Amanda Norman

Ecological Restorer, Australia

I came to the retreat with some big requests – spiritually, emotionally and physically. I was met with integrity to achieve those goals and was given every support, and found the process beautiful and rewarding. I left feeling renewed and revitalised on many levels.

Sahar El-Adib

Naturopath, Australia

I was reaching burn out and needed to do something. I searched the internet and found NIH! The experience was amazing and I got more than I bargained for. I am now relaxed, recharged, and ready to face the world again.



If your healthy or unhealthy this program is a must, and really suitable for all. You will feel amazing and be amazed of just how much rubbish is stored within our organs. It is a fantastic experience to cleanse the blood, clean out the body, and have a real sense of wellbeing. Well worth the challenge! You feel beautiful inside and out.



Anyone desiring a retreat to renew should consider Natural Instinct Healing in beautiful Bali. The surroundings are lush and peaceful, and Kate and Becky provide the right amount of support to help individuals achieve their goals. This retreat is perfect for those who desire a practical approach to incorporating health and wholeness in daily life. I felt comfortable sharing my daily challenges and came to appropriate solutions that will allow me to stay true to my healthy path, while existing in the ‘real world’.

Jan McFarlane


I can’t believe the way I feel………. I feel fantastic. I am sleeping well, my inflammation levels are right down, to the point where I haven’t had any pain relief help for days, & I feel I am moving much more freely. Also my enthusiasm levels are at a pitch I haven’t felt for ages. I am certainly recommending the Simply Renew program to anyone who will listen to me, & I may have to hire a bus when I come back next year.

Abbey Barnes

Theatre, Australia

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kate and Becky for the wonderful fasting retreat in Bali. For me, it was a fantastic holiday and a great experience. The villa, the massage and the spa treatments were all so luxurious. I learned so much about nutrition and about listening to my body and honouring my emotions. I feel so much more relaxed and energised now. My skin is still glowing even after a couple of weeks after completing the fast and I have lost quite a few kilos that I’m now keeping off.
