The Health Lodge is located in the iconic coastal town of Byron Bay, on the north coast of New South Wales. Byron Bay, a renowned wellness hub, is known for its healing oceans, volcanically charged land, exceptional organic produce and clean air. It also attracts some of Australia’s best healthcare practitioners. For all of these reasons, The Health Lodge is the perfect place to begin the journey that will take you towards healing.

For 15 years, Reine DuBois, Clinical Director of The Health Lodge, had a vision. She saw the benefits of integrative medicine and a place where patients could receive comprehensive healthcare through a range of modalities. “I wanted to create a haven for patients where they could receive all the treatment they needed to regain health – offering medical, psychological, nutritional, herbal and physical support. The Health Lodge is the culmination of this vision, where dedicated health professionals work with each other to keep people healthy.”

The Health Lodge team is a working model of how medical and naturopathic healthcare can successfully work together, taking away the unnecessary stress and anxiety of moving from specialist to specialist. An integrative approach means that treatments are identified effectively so patients are supported on a journey towards long-term optimal health, not just temporary symptom relief.

The experience

Feeling chronically unwell means you can lose the ability to live a full and happy life. It can also be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong. The Health Lodge has assembled a team of medical and holistic practitioners who can help you find answers to your chronic health condition and provide a personalised wellness plan to put you on the path to recovery.

Using a combined approach of cutting-edge medical and complementary practices, the underlying cause of your symptoms can gradually become clear, resulting in a tailored and effective treatment protocol for your condition. The team is dedicated to improving your quality of life in the long term.

The Health Lodge offers comfortable and peaceful in-patient facilities and provides a healing sanctuary that caters to all your needs during your journey back to health. The tranquil and private setting provides a nurturing environment for assessment, intensive treatment and long-term wellness planning.


From the moment you arrive to embark on your personalised health retreat to the moment of your departure, you’ll be provided with everything you need for your journey to positive health results.

Unlike other retreats that simply offer time out from day-to-day life, the medical-based, investigative programs are designed to effect long-lasting wellbeing by giving you answers to your chronic health issues and the tools you need to address them.

The integrative medical wellness retreat program includes:


The Wellness Kitchen is the most important dispensary on offer because food can be your medicine. Medical retreat guests will be provided with local, seasonal and organic food, offering a delicious array of fruits and vegetables, local fish and grass-fed meat and catering to vegetarians and other dietary requirements. With these healthy choices, the Wellness Kitchen is able to create a food experience that is pleasurable, nutritious and healing. No bland meals, just food packed with taste, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and love.

Because relieving illness through food is an integral part of The Health Lodge’s healing program, every meal is tailored to your bio-individuality. You’ll share lunch with your naturopath to discuss how to use food to enhance your wellbeing and, even better, participate in private, hands-on cooking lessons so you can return Home with enough confidence to prepare nourishing, delicious food in your own kitchen.
