Natalie Roberts

Head of HR, UK (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2018)

This has been the most incredible experience of my life. I advise it to anyone I hadnt realised how lost and unhappy in my skin I was. I am leaving completely renewed and highly energized for the next chapter of my life.

Gina Suntesic

Public Servant, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2018)

I thought the retreat was really well set out and easy to ‘drop into’ and immerse in the experience. It was the perfect location and mix of people and activities to make the experience a true holistic transformation.

Lucy Sklenar

United States (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2018)

I can not express just how grateful i am for this experience! The fasting detox retreat taught me so much about myself and really kick-started a healing journey for me, on all levels of my being. I had been suffering with persistent candida/gut dysbiosis for many years, as well as a host of hormonal imbalances and all the symptoms that go with it. I entered the fast a woman in high digestive discomfort, very low energy and a lack of zest for life. I was not allowing myself much self love at all. After this journey i feel like a newer, brighter, lighter me, it’s AMAZING. My body feels so good now, i have so much energy and i feel so relaxed about what/how i am eating. My symptoms have dramatically reduced ad i feel like myself again. I truly feel in control of my wellbeing, without controlling anything because i’m doing it all naturally, with love and respect for myself now. This fasting journey is one i would recommend anybody do if you want to transform your life, on all levels! Truly a blessing. The retreat hosts were so sooooo supportive and made me feel very safe and loved the entire time. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to refresh themselves from the inside out!

Jessica Monetti

Restaurant Manager, Italy (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – March 2018)

It was a great experience that I wish to repeat in the future. It s life changing and I will recommend it to anyone…anyone!

Stephen Johnson

United States (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – March 2018)

I have been to a number of detox cleansing retreats and Natural Instinct is by far the best one. I enjoyed the holistic approach to the retreat blending the fasting/detox with exercise, cultural excursions and healing sessions not found in other programs.

Penny Rose

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

There is not one ounce of doubt in me. I will do this again next year. The detox program gave me much, much more than I could have ever imagined.

Damian Parkinson

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.

Kirsty Roe

Environmental Monitoring Officer, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – Feb 2018)

NIH has definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything has been thought out right down to the very last detail so that coming into this retreat (feeling vulnerable during fasting) is made so much easier. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much.

Catherine Rose

Mining Engineer, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – Feb 2018)

When I came to the retreat I was feeling completely burnt out, both physically and emotionally. I got to a point where I thought to myself, I can’t go on like this!! After completing the 7 day fast I can honestly say I feel 110% better. I have my old energy back, I am excited to get back to work and get back into my fitness and I have new goals to work towards. I also feel so much clearer in my mind and have acquired a heap of new skills and knowledge to help me through whatever lies ahead. The staff and hosts have been so supportive and friendly. It’s been a joy to see their smiling faces every day. Thank-you so much to the team at NIH!

Joana Rocha

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!

Nicole Chandler

United States (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2018)

NIH has changed my life. After my first retreat, I knew detoxing was a must have in my life on a yearly basis. This being my 4th retreat, I am still learning and growing, thanks to the NIH team. This place is a safe haven for anyone who wants to dig deep, detox physically and emotionally, and find the resources for living a healthy lifestyle.

This experience has been truely life changing for me.

Lindsey Brett

Accountant, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – October 2017)

Great stay, welcomed and supported from the moment arrive. From the lovely smiley welcome at the airport to the staff the next morning. Meeting the group was a little nerving, especially not knowing what i was really getting myself into. But we were supported and encouraged every step of the way and i met some great new friend who i hope to keep in contact with. I know i found this experience incredibly insightful and look forward to taking some of the practices home with me. Particularly taking up yin yoga, meditation, mindfulness and healthy eating habits/recipes.

Henri Sitnikau

Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – October 2017)

It was such a fantastic experience. The staff was extremely friendly, the program leaders were top professionals, the program itself was very well put together. The result was I’ve opened a whole new world being a new approach to my emotional and spiritual lives. As to my body it feels great too as I got rid of unwanted crap that I could witness myself. I highly recommend the program to anybody who is looking for change.

Alison Nash

Environmental planner, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – September 2017)

NIH really cares about their clients. From the first welcome to all of the small touches, I felt supported through the fasting journey – body, mind and spirit. Thank you team, I look forward to returning.

Teagan Varley

Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – September 2017)

Coming in to Natural Instinct Healing on day 1 was like a little piece of heaven. I’d already been in Bali a month but found my stay at the retreat for the 7 days i fasted the icing on the cake for my travels, i really feel i’ve been able to experience all i wanted to in Bali this trip. Plus i get to leave Bali with the special transformation i’ve felt over the last week, 5kg lighter and more empowered to love food (and myself) even more than i already do and nourish myself as best i can! My cooking mojo is back and i feel a real sense of contentment despite the challenging year i’ve had. I would recommend this to anyone despite what their goals are and any reservations they have, it really is a beautiful and relaxing experience.

Judy Andrews

Manager, Australia (Bali Superfood Cleanse Retreat – September 2017)

As a return guest for the 3rd time this retreat offers so much more than you can imagine. Through each experience I have lean’t more about myself, living healthy and looking after myself. I can thoroughly recommend to anyone at any age.

Dianne Arnold

Business owner, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – August 2017)

Wow, what an amazing experience! Retreat hosts are extremely welcoming & professional, and the program makes not eating for 10 days easy! This retreat works on so many different areas of your life in a gentle, caring environment. Just do it!

Milos Stojsavljevic

Construction Project Manager, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – August 2017)

This has to be one of the most amazing places on earth. Not only the beautiful surrounds, incredible staff and massive support. But the love towards the journey and helping us poop, cry and breath out the other side! Life changing.

Hannah Foy

Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – August 2017)

This retreat was hands down the best thing i have ever done for myself – physically/mentally/spiritually/emotionally!! Being able to completely let go and take time for myself to heal surrounded by nothing but love and support.

Jill Hughes

Business owner, New Zealand (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – August 2017)

I have come back feeling refreshed, lighter in the body and mind and very energised. My head is very calm, there is no little voices in there being destructive. A truley amazing gift I gave myself.

Emily Pratt

Myotherapist and kinesiologist, Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – August 2017)

This retreat has been truly life changing for me on every level. After some traumatic life events, l lost my direction in life, used food and alcohol as a comforter and knew l needed some guidance and help to get me back on track. I intuitively felt NIH was the answer for me. I wanted to approach my health issues in a holistic way! I’m a healer by nature and studying some really cool modalities in healing but felt l was stuck in moving forward as l needed to do some serious work on myself first. My life is forever changed and l’m now on an awesome path of self love, gratitude and transformation. I can not thank you all enough. Infinite love & gratitude to each and every one of you!
Lots of love, Emily!

Natasha Whish-Wilson

Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – July 2017)

Awesome retreat that just keeps getting better and better. I’ve attended other retreats annually for 5 years but this is the first one I’ve returned to. I managed to build on what I achieved at the first retreat and returned this year to consolidate and take it to the next level and it blows my mind as to how much I achieved and how much clearer and calmer my mind is about my future. This retreat is the best gift you can ever give yourself.

Helen McCullagh

Artist, Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – July 2017)

Such an amazing, transformational time. Learnt so much about myself and the tools to live a healthier, happier life.

Sharon Cooke

Ontological Coach & Retreat Facilitator, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – July 2017)

I arrived at the retreat physically and emotionally depleted. I had finished a really tough season at work and in the final months, to keep the momentum up, I was loading up on coffee and carbs in the am, and a glass of wine every evening. To get through – I really punished my body. I had booked for a 7 day fast and wasn’t quite sure just how much could be achieved. It was amazing to witness. The headaches lifted day 2, the sore stiff hips passed on day 4, By day 7 I truly felt transformed! It surprised me. My body felt light, energetic and flexible. My head was clear and calm. And my mood lifted – I found my old self returning, finding delight in everyday moments, enjoying laughter, sinking into bliss at any random moment – just happy to be alive! I am so grateful to you all – for the quality of the program and the incredible support. Thank you!

Jodie Farr

Operations Officer, Australia (Bali Superfood Cleanse Retreat – May 2017)

Before coming to the retreat I felt hopeless, exhausted and like my life had no purpose. After the retreat program I felt healthy, energised, positive about the future, and like all my emotional blockages had been cleared out. Plus I made some wonderful friends who I will continue to connect with and support for the rest of time. Thank you to the NIH team for changing my life.

Gwendolyn Gourvenec

Actress, France (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2017)

Doing the fasting program, has been the best gift i’ve ever given to myself. You feel fresh, empowered, conscious, aware of little things and most of all, so great in your body. I feel like a newborn!

Johanna Tjeder

Sales Director, Switzerland (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2017)

I love this place as you know it is my second time coming. I always learn something new about myself and get reminded of what is important in my life. For me it is a safe haven. Staff is amazing and they make you feel so at home. thanks again for a lovely stay.

Ariel Endean

Self-employed, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2017)

I totally enjoyed my 10 day detox fast health retreat experience and surprisingly was neither bored or hungry. I did the program for my physical health not realising how much my emotional health would benefit from the experience as well. I feel lighter and happier and more connected and at peace with myself than I have in years. I highly recommend this program to anyone who ones to FEEL BETTER!

Amie Abela

Admin Supervisor, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – April 2017)

Thank you thank you thank you Georgia, Lola and Sarah. From the moment i walked through the doors i felt like i was in safe hands plus i had the flu and Georgia was right onto it with the immune herbs. The group was guided through everything and reminded when to drink or to have our herbs. It made the week so much easier. All 3 ladies were super supportive, organised and knowledgeable about pretty much everything they were asked. It was a fun busy week and i wouldnt of changed 1 thing. A special shout out to Sarah for her first retreat she was amazing and so confident. Thank you all again xxx

Sidnee Watkins

Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – March 2017)

It was overall a wonderful experience. I left NIH a better person. I was expecting physical changes, however the mental and emotional changes were extraordinary. I am so happy that I did this retreat and would do it again in a heartbeat. The staff were phenomenal and so supportive. It was exactly what I wanted and needed.

Christina Zipperlen

Artist, Germany (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2017)

The retreat has impacted my life in so many ways. Having given myself the opportunity to slow down and give my entire system a break has reflected itself in so many other aspects of my life in such blissful ways. I have taken away an amazing understanding about my physical and emotional health. The NIH team is such an incredible group of people, thank you for making me feel supported and held!

Cathy Kidgell

Spa Manager, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2017)

The only retreat I’ll ever recommend – facilitates mind body and spirit with a carefully constructed program, full of attention to detail that can leave you worry free and truly go deep.

Jamila Opia

Australia (Bali Total Transformation Retreat – January 2017)

My experience here at Natural Instinct Healing in Bali Ubud is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. This special journey has created the start of something amazing for me. I feel confident to go back to reality and put to practice my inner strength, awareness and self love. I feel like I am now on the right path with my health both physically and emotionally. I never imagined a transformation like this and I am forever grateful for the guidance, love, kindness, and support that I recieved. Thank you xxx

Britt Willessee

Self-employed – Retail, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – January 2017)

Thank you for encouraging me and giving me the tools to discover myself! I’ve absolutely loved my retreat, and the safe envionment that has nurtured us all so wonderfully. Georgia, Lola and Dewi are amazing professionals, but also very “real”, beautiful facilitators. Thank you for renewing my spirit. x

Damien Drew

Art Director, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – December 2016)

Natural Instinct Healing provide a rare opportunity to step out of the rat race and reassess what is important to you on every level, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I had fasted once before in Thailand at another retreat centre and it was indeed very beneficial. NIH however have a significantly more holistic approach to well being that includes but is not limited to; personally nurturing and consistently attendant health coaches/retreat hosts, cheerful Balinese staff who imbue the place with positive energy, excellent yoga, a great pool, great massage, nutritious juices and focused educational workshops. They also provided access to external activities that don’t compromise the ideology of the retreat if you wish to participate. The centre caters to a small group of individuals at any one time ensuring focused treatment and care. This program has shown me that you don’t need to sign up for extreme rigor in a fast or any other retreat when you can experience great benefit from a more ‘gently, gently’ but massively effective and affecting program. With thanks and much gratitude, i will see you again.

Kyrsten Evans

Governance Advisor – Local Government, Australia (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – December 2016)

There are no words to adequately summarise the retreat experience. I entered fragile, broken and fatigued. I was feeling lost, confused, alone in my own thoughts and didn’t know what else to do. I feel light. Light in my mind, body, and anxieties. I feel rich in my heart and excited to live my life again. Thank you beautiful Natural Instinct Healing.

Laura Wilson

New Zealand (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – December 2016)

I have been doing cleanses every year for 10 years now and have done them all over the world. I always enjoyed the programs, but also always felt they were in lacking in one area or another. When I discovered Natural Instinct Healing, I finally found the place that not only ticks all the boxes but does so incredibly well. NIH fully embodies HOLISTIC healing – healing every area of your life and supporting you 100% throughout that whole journey. You continuously feel supported, nurtured and safe to fully cleanse, heal and grow. This is my 5th retreat with them, and every time I come they exceed my expectations even further than the last time I was here – hence why I am such a firm advocate. THANK YOU to the whole team for the continued support, warmth and laughs – I am beyond grateful for all you do and provide.

Mel Loh

Business Coach & Consultant, Singapore (Bali Fasting Detox Retreat – December 2016)

Words are hard to encapsulate the experience but I’ll try 🙂 The retreat experience felt like the final puzzle piece to place into a big cycle of my self care upgrade. I felt so lucky to experience the retreat and the dedication and care of the team was so uplifting and wonderful. Even though it was pretty painful at times, I walked away with a lot of valuable lessons that I am integrating into my daily life right now. I’m feeling so happy about my new self care plan for 2017! Totally willing to do a video testimonial.

Kim Smadis

Holistic Health Coach, Canada

Thank you for the support, encouragement, love and knowledge you provide. All of you are amazing people who God gave a special purpose in life, that you are truly living! I love my Bali family! (Returning Guest)

Brook Valentine

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.

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.

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’.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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’.

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.

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.
