It was wonderful to be able to come to Koh Samui to The Source and see Ivor in person to begin a 7-day treatment. A few years ago, after going through menopause and starting a more sedentary job, my body changed – my metabolism slowed down and I put on some extra weight. After eating (even a small portion), I noticed that my abdominal region would feel bloated, and I could not sit comfortably but would have to lie down flat to feel better while digesting. Just after the second day on the herbal detox and OJ fast, I noticed my gut felt flatter, more relaxed, and more like before menopause. My body felt lighter, and I was able to move more freely about - with energy. I wasn’t 100% sure I could stick to the OJ fast, but once on it, I felt fine. Just a couple of times over the week I had hunger pains and after drinking some OJ, they went away. Overall, Koh Samui is a lovely and ideal place to do the program. I ordered the 14-day program a few years ago and had good results while eating healthy foods but being in Koh Samui provided the environment I needed to relax, unwind, focus on my health, and stick to the juice fast. I am so pleased with the results that I purchased another takeaway treatment to keep me on track with a healthier lifestyle.
Very grateful to The Source and Ivor for his suggestions and guidance through the entire process. He is easily available by phone, email or WhatsApp and even provided a juicer for me while on Koh Samui as I had decided to do the takeaway detox and stay at another resort in Lamai.
Highly recommend The Source and thankful for my new beginning.

Ir was my first experience to do detox program. At the beginning I worried that I wouldn't be able to stay without a food and decided to start from little. I received from The Source 7 day's program with detailed consultation how to take formulas and do the orange juice detox. I told myself let's start with 3 days and see. To follow schedule is very easy, as all formulas marked on it how to use them. Syrups are taste fantastic, so it was a big pleasure to drink them! The juicing machine was provided by Ivor and I could do my fresh juices by myself.  First 2 days my body and mind were adjusting to the program, on the 3rd day I felt really comfortable and decided to continue juicing for longer... I could see my body changing dramatically from hour to an hour. I was feeling lighter walking, swelling was disappearing and the  skin was looking more shiny and tight. I completed 5 days of juicing easy and another 2 days stayed with juice, some fruits and one very light food a day. The result was 4 kg loss within 7 days, tight and more flexible body and clearer mind. My results  overcame my expectations!
I will be more brave and definitely will repeat the program for longer period again during my following visit to Thailand. Thanks to Ivor and his unique formulas helping people to be healthier, fitter and more in love with themselves!
I would recommend everyone who is looking for healthy and comfortable detox to use The Source and Ivor's formulas!

I did the 14 days OJ detox and the liver cleanse with my mom and my husband. It was challenging but we never felt a loss of energy or weakness through the 2 weeks, instead we were very fresh and had a lot of energy throughout the day. Ivor was always available to answer any questions we had or guide us along the way.
My mom has been on BP medication for the last 18 months and by the end of the 14 days, her blood pressure became more stable; the doctor asked her to reduce her dosage to half and now he is watching her and at the rate she is going she will be off her BP meds for good hopefully. This has been the most beneficial for her. She is in her 60’s and we were a little apprehensive about her doing the full 14 days detox but she felt great every single day and was able to do 2 of the liver flushes. She also had pain in her feet (planter fascia) for the last 2 months and the Orthopedic had told her it will take a long time to heal, but towards the end of the programme, her pain had completely gone and it’s been a week now and the pain hasn’t come back.

Honestly it’s difficult to explain in words how beneficial this detox has been for our family. I am glad the 3 of us did it together, my husband has been struggling with weight loss for some time now and this has really helped him, he has dropped 8 kilos and also made a lifestyle change because now we know the importance of eating right.
We will be forever grateful to Ivor for introducing us to this herbal detox.

The Irish owner comes across as a bit of a shark if you ask me. I don't think he practices what he preaches to be perfectly frank. His side kick who does the massages is ok.
Bottom line; Ivor, the owner is not always a very pleasant man to deal with. Not at all zen. There are better places to spend your money on Samui if you're looking to detox and or change your daily habits.

I was on a 14 day detox retreat in Koh Samui in July this year staying at another establishment . During my trip I came across The Source while browsing on the internet for the Best detox programmes in Thailand. I was immediately drawn to the programme after reading the information on their website and the various positive reviews posted on Trip Advisor.
I decided to extend my stay for a further week and made an appointment with Ivor the owner . Ivor was very welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable . I decided to start the programme while I was in Koh Samui and continue with it when I returned home. I started to immediately notice the changes in my energy levels and decided to take a one month supply back with me. Ivor also gave me the Liver Flush protocol to do back home. This was mind blowing ! Having completed the three flushes, I immediately began to feel like a new person both physically and mentally . Lots more energy , better sleep, joint pain almost gone...
I have struggled with several auto immune disorders and the program has really helped to reduce the symptoms
I must also mention Jet Li for the incredible Tibetan healing and chiropractic treatment . He is truly a gifted soul!
Thank you Ivor for your kindness and continued support on my healing journey . It’s not over as yet as I continue with your supplements and improve every day .
I highly recommend The Source to anyone who wishes to improve their health and well being in a natural way .

I have just completed a 7 day detox with Ivor at the Source in Lamai . Although I have a healthy lifestyle and follow a balanced, natural plant based diet I was feeing a bit sluggish and noticing that some patterns had snuck in, like ‘needing’ a daily afternoon pick me up or a sweet treat at the end of the day and decided that a detox would be a good way to reset.

The program is simple to follow and well
supported and you will receive as much individual attention as you need through the process. I opted for the orange juice fast for the first 3 days and then moved to green juices and clear vegetable broth ( in the evenings ) for the remaining 4 days - I would have stayed with the orange juice for a longer period but my supply dried up after the 3 days so moved to plan b.

After feeling a bit of fatigue for the first 2 days a real sense of clarity and lightness prevailed for the remainder of the week. The herbs and tonics support the detox process nicely and I noticed that my digestion continued to work well though the week. This was a gentler detox than ones I have done in the past and I really appreciated the natural approach.

I loved the fact that once you have the herbs you could really do this detox wherever you find yourself provided that you have easy access to fruit and vegetables and some extra time on your hands to truly get the full benefit of the experience.

I came to the end the week feeling clear and alert, sleeping really well and also noticed a significant decrease to my resting heart rate - a good indication that my body was functioning well. My sweet cravings had also completely gone- this really was an excellent reset! .

I would definitely recommend this program if you are looking to reset, it is so easy to follow, comes with excellent guidance and the optional extra acupressure treatments from Jetlee are a must! Such a wonderful, balancing addition to the program!

I had some existing health issues with my kidneys, and I went to The Source and they were able to help me with some herbal formulas.
I had issues with my eyes and kidneys and the Herbalist gave me some herbal remedy formulas which helped a lot.

I am not feeling any discomfort or pain now and my kidney function has improved.

The herbal formulas I was expecting to have a medicinal type taste but the taste was quite mild and pleasing.

With my eye discomfort I experienced a huge benefit using the eye herb formula compared to the artificial eye drops I had been taking so this helped much better.

I would recommend The Source to anyone that has some minor ailments or looking for an alternative treatment method

Looking for a reset of body & mind and came across the source herbal detox program incorporating the OJ fast which sounded very interesting and something I felt I could achieve for a short period of time.

I decided to fly to KS and visit Ivor to discuss the herbal protocols and OJ fast.

On my arrival I sat with Ivor, and we mapped out herbal protocol, OJ fast and acupressure, Chinese cupping & reiki with the magical Mr Jet Lee who has healing hands and is an absolute gift from God.

Within the first 2 days ,my stomach complaints felt lighter, my mind felt clearer, I was having deep sleeps and Jet’s healing hands relieved neck, head, shoulder complaints that I have had for many years.

My stay was for 14 days, and I lost approx. 3Kg in weight, but the benefits of the herbal, OJ & Jet’s magical touch I will forever be grateful.

I will be making the trip to KS every year to do a reset with Ivor & Jet, this is my health insurance and something I will do to keep me on top of my game.

A side note my husband and mother flew to KS with me and did the Herbal protocol & OJ fast as well.

The benefits for my husband were better sleep, more relaxed, loved Jet’s ability to ease his head & shoulder pain and give him a very strong acupressure reset + he lost 8KG in 14 days.

My mother was in a wheelchair at the KS airport as she has problems with walking, by the end of 14 days she was walking, we put this down to Jet working on her lower back and legs, daily swimming in the pool, daily foot & leg massages and taking the healing herbs.

I want to thank Ivor & Jet, as a team together they are special and care for the wellbeing of their patients.

Thank you, guys, once again.

I have done two full programmes provided by Ivor at The Source Herbal Detox – the 14 Day Detox to Go program in April/May 2022 and also The Master Herbal Detox Program in Koh Samui with Ivor’s guidance in March 2019.

My visit to Koh Samui and doing the program for a couple of weeks in 2019 was great for me. Ivor’s sure handed approach and explanations to my sometimes-random questions or queries were politely answered and it made me feel it would be possible to do this program on my own later. I did the OJ fast alongside the formulas and herbs and I feel this is the best for me and surprisingly I find it quite easy. After my few days I felt like a different person. It was like getting a hard reset and my brain fog lifted. And then the liver flush! Oh the liver flush! It was all a bit of a revelation for me and the whole programme exceeded my expectations. The biggest surprise was how my energy levels had been renewed and being lighter on my feet. The accommodation on the beach was perfect and well maintained.

Just recently I did the 14 Day Detox to Go program in Andalusía in Spain where the naranjas are plentiful and juicy! I ordered by emailing Ivor and I received all in short notice and all in good order. I travelled with my electric juicer, formulas and herbs to Spain where I had organised a car and an Airbnb by the beach. It was perfect time to come to Spain for me, not too busy and not too hot. I also did a few liver flushes which I found a lot more uncomfortable than I had previously and not as dramatic! The liver flushes almost did not happen as finding Epsom salts in rural Spain is not as easy as one might expect. I would always suggest having everything you need before starting a program and being relaxed and comfortable. In 16 days, I went through around 80kgs of oranges and became picky about my oranges! And for me being away from home worked for me the best. On this program my sleep improved noticeably and it continues to do so along with having a refreshing clarity.

Ivor’s support in both person and email has always been prompt, clear and concise without being intrusive at any time. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Source herbal detox programs and Ivor for anyone who is looking for a change through a natural detox.

I completed a 14 day detox and orange juice fast with Ivor at The Source Herbal Detox in Lamai Beach on Koh Samui in May 2022. I was so impressed with the entire program, from the excellent support, encouragement and suggestions from Ivor during the 14 days, to the high quality of the herbs and information he supplied.
I completed 2 liver flushes as well which are very beneficial for liver health. In fact, I felt so empowered and healthy while completing the 14 days, I did 17 days before ending my detox program.

It is now 2 weeks afterwards and I continue to feel healthier than I have for years, my body feels clean and my mind is clear. I can not recommend Ivor's detox program enough, give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

Good Luck & Good Health!
