Mullum Sari offers cleanse and detox program which includes all of the treatments in our guiding principles for creating a healthier lifestyle. You will receive colonics, massages, body scrub, daily dry hydrotherapy bed massage sessions, hyperbaric oxygen and infra-red sauna sessions, guided guided health coaching and more.
Mullum Sari is located in Mullumbimby; a thriving country town within the Byron Bay Hinterland’s ‘4000 hectare playground’. Mullum Sari offers a world class healing experience at accessible rates and in a truely unique ‘Mullum style’ environment; the ‘Manse’ health retreat accommodation, the gym and the spa are all located in and around the hub of the Mullumbimby township, in leisurely walking / cycling distance from one another.
The denouement of these surroundings is the opportunity for integrated change to take place; by the time you return home, you have already experienced life amongst a real town, with all of life’s temptations at your fingertips, yet you chose to get yourself to the gym early each day, you largely or completely abstained from destructive habits and nurtured your body with living juice and living foods.
When you return home, on those days where you may feel a little discouraged for having inevitably lapsed into some old habits, we hope you will find comfort in knowing that during your stay with us, you developed your innate understanding of how to make healthy choices for yourself within the stresses of normal daily life and we trust you will find yourself genuinely renewed during those times when you may need the most encouragement and support.
For a deep healing and cleansing experience, we encourage our guests to juice fast. A juice fast is when you completely abstain from solid foods and only consume liquids and fruit & vegetable juices.
Although our bodies detox naturally on a daily basis, we are exposed to so many different hemicals and harmful substances that we are in a state of toxic overload. Primary forms of toxic exposure includes pesticides, heavy metals, prescription drugs, cosmetics, food additives, preservatives, parasites and chronic stress. Toxins that can’t be eliminated naturally accumulate and stored in our body, mainly in our fat cells. Toxic overload can cause symptoms such as headaches, heartburn, sleep problems, muscle aches, sinus problems, constipation, diarrhoea, fatigue, excess weight, bloating and more.
When you juice fruit and vegetables, you take out all the fibre content and drink only the liquid that is full of vitamins, enzymes and nutrients. Juices therefore require a minimal amount of energy from your body for both digestion and assimilation of its goodness. Like carbohydrates, proteins and fats, consumption of fibre is essential for good health. However, eliminating them for a short time will give your digestive system a break and your body can then direct energy towards deep cleansing and removal of toxins. Fasting is an opportunity to rejuvenate your body at a cellular level.
To ensure a safe, effective and enjoyable fasting experience, we strongly suggest that you prepare your body before you begin. Without preparation, the release of toxins that gradually accumulated in your body throughout the years can make you feel quite ill. A week before your cleanse starts, aim to eat a vegetarian diet. Increase the amount of salads, smoothies, raw fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and seeds and drink lots of water. Avoid processed and sugary foods, refined, white wheat flour products and dairy. Also avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol. In addition to the 1 litre of cold pressed juice, the first day of all retreat packages of 3 days or more includes fresh organic fruits during the day and a nourishing organic vegetable soup for night time. During fasting days, you will receive 1 litre of cold pressed juice each morning and a strained broth each evening, which is light and yet very medicinal, nourishing and grounding.
It is very common to experience uncomfortable symptoms that fasting may trigger on day 2 and 3 of your cleanse. This stage of detox is known as ‘healing crisis’ and is completely normal. You may feel run down, irritable, lightheaded and experience headaches and weakness. Once that stage is done, you will begin to feel light, energised and improved mental clarity. If you wish to partake in the 21 day preparation program, see below:
This optional 21 Day Preparation Programme is a ‘tried and true’ detoxification program. Please note this program is not suitable for pregnant women, children or anyone under doctor’s prescription medication unless they have a naturopath monitoring them.
These supplements are practitioner products with the exception of the spirulina. follow this 21 day detoxification program with a 30 day course of a good acidophilus supplement, for example: ethical nutrients inner health plus dairy free capsules, one cap daily.
At least 2 litres of filtered water should be consumed during the day. all foods not mentioned in the diet should be avoided for at least 21 days.
On some days, you may wish to substitute or include with your lunch or dinner meal one of the following:
There are some liver cleanse powders and digestive tonics that we recommend to assist if you suffer from constipation or have irritable bowel syndrome. please feel free to consult our team prior to your arrival should you have any questions. if you bloat, have heart burn, don’t digest your food well or have bad breath then a bitter herb drink such as swedish bitters may assist you or your naturopath will be happy to make one for you.

"My friend and I did the 5 day detox and loved, loved, loved this healing centre. I arrived feeling tired and overly stressed and so enjoyed taking a break from a busy life in Sydney and coming home feeling cleansed and sooo much better. It is a lovely opportunity to really focus on yourself in caring surroundings. I highly recommend Mullim Sari and would go back in a heartbeat- in fact another visit will be on my goals list for 2017! Thanks Mullum Sari."

"The therapists are very experienced, helpful and caring in their treatments. The day was spent fasting on beautifully prepared vegetable juice and broth in the evening. The infra red sauna was my favourite treatment but the colonic which I feared was quite amazing. If you are looking for somewhere to seriously address your health, this is the place.... Early morning yoga classes were the icing on the cake. Visited June 2014"

"I went to Mullum Sari for 4 nights, 5 days to recharge the batteries. The experience was fantastic. The manse accommodation was beautiful, the staff (especially Melanie our host) were so friendly and helpful, and the treatments were great. They made the colonic treatments (which I were dreading) so comfortable. You are only given juice and soup as you are fasting, and suprisingly they are both filling and delicious. I paid for a raw food class which was a complete eye opener. I didn't realise how beneficial it was for our bodies to be consuming raw foods. Plus, how quick and simple the recipes are. I also had a fantastic personal trainer who showed me a few easy exercises to do at home to help transform your body. Thank you Mullum Sari. I will definitely be back again soon."

"I stayed here over easter for the signature healing week and I was blown away by how relaxing and wonderful Mullum Sari is. Liz our host at the Manse was super welcoming and friendly she kept the house clean and left fresh flowers daily her raw food class was also very eye opening and i have since tried out a few of the recipes at home. The spa was also fantastic Mel and Antoinette were lovely and attentive and i thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I would 100% recommend and hope to come back soon. Visited April 2014"
