Fasting is the most powerful method of healing. It is natures way of cleansing, healing and regenerating the vital life force. With fasting all of the energy usually used for digestion is diverted elsewhere in the body to digest any dis-ease and self heal. Fasting also triggers the production of human growth hormone in order to repair damaged tissues, regenerate vital functions and rejuvenate the system. It is like pushing the “restart button on a computer” . As we fast, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are all cleansed.
"The reason I chose a detox at Byron Bay Detox Retreats was to stop a cycle of self sabotage that I had indulged in which negatively impacted my health and spirit.

"I feel through the loving support of Natalie and her team that I have gained greater insight in to myself and can let go of old stories. I feel more at peace, inspired and motivated. With Love & Gratitude"— Julie
"As you know, I have been diabetic for eleven years with various complications. Since completing your Byron Bay Detox program I have been able to bend my knees to a squat position and been pain free in my arms for the first time in years. While on the program I was able to decrease my insulin usage to 50% of my normal intake and since completing the detox have been using 35% - 40% less. I cannot thank you both enough for your extensive Naturopathic expertise, kindness, consideration and care. My life has definitely changed for the better."— Kim Daly

"I am so glad that I came to you. As you know I suffer from a chronic condition that causes me daily pain. Although my pain has not completely gone it has lessened to the extent that I can live an almost normal life again. I had been warned that the third and fourth days of the fast would be terrible, but I sailed through with no ill effects whatsoever. As a matter of fact by the third day I was feeling the best I had in years. I am so very, very glad I took the time to do this retreat".— Sharon C
More than just a detox! After a lot of research I decided to go to Byron Bay Detox Retreat. I suffered severe stomach problems including IBS, and was on medication for depression and struggled with motivation to do even basic things. After day three I realised that BBDR was to become so much more than a detox. I felt like I was finally healing and I felt positive for the future. When I left the retreat I no longer felt broken, I felt like I was floating and my skin and eyes were glowing. I couldn’t wait to get on with life. I’m now off all medication and loving life. Thank you to Natalie and all the therapists for your support and guidance.— Susie .P.

Coming to you has been a life changing experience. If anyone reading this has any doubts about doing a retreat, my advice would be to embrace it all, give it your all and you will feel better for it. Thank you once again"— Sharon

"Angels! Both of you, absolutely positively two of the most wonderful people I have had the good fortune to meet. You are clearly outstanding Naturopaths with encyclopedic knowledge and are quite simply an inspiration. You two are such wonderful people and you found incredible therapists to work with you. Each therapist seemed to be a living breathing advertisement for a healthy lifestyle... truly beautiful personalities wrapped in truly beautiful exteriors. Without exception, the therapists who looked after us over that week were ceaselessly generous with their time, energy and extensive knowledge of their respective therapies. Wonderful people, all of them."— Alex Balnaves, Sydney

So now I'm super mindful as to what's going into my temple!"— Dr. Hanna Cyncynatus, Melbourne
