Feeling the need to detox after a few too many Bintangs? Or maybe you’re just determined to focus on your health more this year? If you are interested in either detox programmes or juice cleanses, Bali is a great place to be! They have tons of high-quality options at reasonable prices guaranteed to make you feel lighter, brighter and full of energy. We’ve rounded up some of the best options available in Bali right now….
Top juice cleanses in Canggu
Oma Jamu is a vegan/healthy food lover’s dream! Their delicious vegan buffet is well known in Canggu, but did you know they also have an extensive collection of cleansing juices in the healthy foods shop attached to the restaurant?
The clue is in the name: ‘Oma Jamu’ translates to Grandmother Jamu, and Jamu is known to have many fab health benefits for those looking to cleanse & detox. Think anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties. These exlir’s are particularly great at Oma- made from all-natural, fresh ingredients and coming in a variety of flavours, they are seriously tasty and healthy to boot.
You will also pay a fraction of the price compared to some of the larger supermarkets, so it’s well worth stocking up!
For Remix, it’s not about fads or quick success stories- they want to create juices that not only taste good, but use only top quality, fresh ingredients and nourish your body with the vitamins & anti-oxidants it deserves.
They use the ‘cold press’ method of juicing to avoid the loss of essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins through grinding. You can visit them on Jl. Umalas to buy single juices or consider purchasing the light juice cleanse, intermediate cleanse or the 30 days juice challenge to see how it will impact your overall mental & physical wellbeing.
In The Raw
Looking for the very best, fresh, organic juices, smoothies that use only natural goods? Then it’s worth checking out ‘In the Raw’ a new beach garden, restaurant and juice bar in Canggu.
Like Remix, expect 100 per cent organic cold-pressed juice’s that are produced locally. All are made to order and a cleanse consists of six 350mL cold-pressed juices. You can either pick from the tasty menu or request a custom flavour combination!
Motion cafe is known for its fitness food, but it is also a great option for those looking for a juice detox. Their juices work by enhancing the natural healing power of your body and ridding it of any built-up toxins for a total detoxification process.
Every day you can expect 6 x 300ml Cleansing Juice, 1 x 300ml Aloe Vera Juice and 1 x 300ml Turmeric Juice. Visit their website for additional tips on how to get the most out of your juice cleanse.
Top juice cleanses in Ubud
The Yoga Barn
Ubud is often seen as the centre of health and wellness in Bali, so its no surprise that you can take the cleanse process one step further here and actually partake in a 3-Day Juice Cleanse at the Yoga barn. Described as a ‘transformative, self-guided juice cleanse program’ Yoga barn aims to help heal your gut by re-stabilizing the muscle of your large intestine.
As well as five fresh, cold-pressed juices and one nut milk every day, you are also able to take part in daily yoga, meditation and sound healing classes, as well as have a Colon Hydrotherapy session and Infra-Red sauna sessions. Healing both our gut and our mind? Where do we sign up!?
Gaia Retreat Center
The Gaia Retreat Center in Ubud take their juice cleanses really seriously- their detox programs aim to rehydrate and reset your digestive and sleeping patterns so you can leave Bali feeling fully energized and learn how to detox again in the future should you need to. Choose from either a deep or light cleanse.
The deep cleanse is a liquid-only juice and soup fast for repairing your body on a cellular level, compared to the light cleanse which is an ‘all-living’ foods diet. This includes a combination of fresh juices, soups, plant-based meals & raw fresh salads. On the light detox, expect a slower rate of detoxification so it is recommended for those coming off a heavy diet who don’t wish to detox too quickly.
Top detox programmes in Ubud
Natural instinct healing
Natural Instinct Healing has a great detox programme option in Ubud which focuses on the process of cleansing through fasting. Abstinence from food is said to help purge the body of long-term toxins and acid which prevents us from absorbing nutrients effectively.
Treat this program as a “re-start” button for your body- all whilst getting helpful support and guidance in a safe environment.
The Ark Boutique Hotel
At the Ark Boutique in Ubud, Amy Rachelle, a naturopath and raw foods expert, focuses her retreats not only on raw vegan food but also on deep internal cleansing. She does this by teaching you to develop healthy habits with food and encourages practising meditation and yoga.
Expect useful scientific info on the art of cleansing: such as how and why it works, techniques for eliminating toxins and using your detox to gain energy, eliminate bloating and tackle pesky skin issues.
Top detox programmes in Canggu
Revitalize your body, mind and spirit with a detox program at Udara, close to Canggu. As well as daily organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies and vegetable soups, you can expect to partake in daily spa treatments, yoga and breathing exercises.
Looking for motivation or insight into the health benefits? Why not attend one of the free talks on topics such as health, digestion and hydration as well as gaining useful advice on how to maintain optimal health after your cleanse ends. Worried about reintroducing solid foods?
On your final day, the team will reintroduce you slowly with nourishing foods such as a raw food platter to ease the transition. Choose between a 7 or 12-day program, and you can even opt to join a special ‘Holy Water Cleansing Ceremony’ whilst there.
The Detox Room
The Detox Room is conveniently located just off Batu Bolong in Canggu and is a great choice for those who are time-sensitive or need a cheaper alternative to staying at an overnight program. Yet, this doesn’t mean your treatment is any less professional as your cleanse is overseen by a qualified and experienced doctor.
A typical ‘detox’ programme consists of acupuncture, auriculotherapy, colon hydrotherapy, Chinese cupping, Chinese herbal medicine and facial rejuvenation and only lasts about 50 minutes, but they also offer fasting packages and help for those wishing to quit smoking. Patients can also expect help with other issues such as weight loss, depression and insomnia if they wish to take their detox one step further.
At Bali Healing, they believe input from a qualified therapist can make your detox journey a lot easier. They offer a broad range of holistic and naturopathic therapies designed to help physical and emotional issues. Their methods include osteopathy, Chinese Medicine and homoeopathy as well as more unique techniques like live blood analysis.
The focus here is on the whole human being rather than a specific problem- which enables ‘true healing’ to happen and for the centre to deliver much better results than orthodox medicine can.
