Sweep Your Gut, Detox Your Cells and Improve Your Energy.

Take the 9V9 veggie-based detox program and transform how you feel in 9 days.

Join one of Australia's leading Naturopath's, Helen Padarin, as she mentors you to completely transform your health - and your life - in the flagship online program for 'Padarin Health'.

This isn’t your standard detox.

We’re not asking you to cut anything out - just to add more of the good stuff in!

9 cups of veggies a day, for 9 days.

That’s it.

Yep, you can have your Easter egg - and eat it too!

(Pssst… a study from St. Andrews University found that people who upped their intake of fresh vegetables for six weeks were rated as sexier).

Sadly though, not all the statistics we read have us feeling quite so ravishing…

We are seeing more and more evidence that people aren’t eating enough vegetables, and are missing out on all the goodness they provide.

Consider this;

  • Only 3.2% of 18-24 year olds eat the recommended serve of vegetables each day.
  • Only 5.1% of Australian adults consume the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables (which is set conservatively low as it is).

It’s no wonder that we are experiencing an epidemic of compromised immunity, illness and obesity. Our toxic overload has never been higher and we’ve come to think of mental fatigue as normal (SPOILER ALERT: it’s not!).

It’s not just what’s happening inside that affects us; our bodies are carrying excess weight, our skin is suffering, and we lack the confidence to show our best selves to the world.

Over the years, Helen has worked tirelessly and helped thousands of people to change the way they approach health, and seen the huge impact that simple changes can have in their bodies - and beyond!

Often her patients have the right motivation and just need a little more information on how to actually take those first few steps.

She wanted to create a program that could reach more people and empower them to get started in the right direction.

So she did.

The '9V9 Veggie Challenge', is the quickest and easiest way to kickstart health, happiness and healing - all from the comfort of your own home.

9V9 can help if you’re experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Food intolerances
  • Autoimmune issues
  • Low energy in the morning
  • Craving salty or sugary foods
  • Low libido
  • Afternoon fatigue
  • Getting a second wind in the evening
  • Difficulty remaining asleep
  • Afternoon headaches
  • Blood-sugar issues
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Moodiness
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Thyroid issues,
  • Leptin and insulin resistance


Here's some of the simple and delicious meals you'll be getting your 'veggie fill' of.

You may want to consider doing 9V9 for that alone!

"Helen radiates health - she exemplifies what can be achieved with a life dedicated to health & wellness. Helen does this without sacrifice of the important things...like having fun!" - Kale Brock


Helen Padarin is one of Australia’s leading experts and loudest voices in the revolution of holistic health driven by real food.

With a knack for breaking down complex concepts into easy-to-implement actions, she is a respected naturopath, nutritionist, medical herbalist and best-selling author renowned for her vast knowledge in all things vitality.

Based in Sydney, Helen works from one of the most highly regarded integrated medical centres (alongside GP’s, a paediatrician and other practitioners), where she specialises in helping kids with immune, autoimmune and neurological disorders - a cause she is deeply passionate about.

Helen has an insatiable hunger for knowledge. This has seen her complete a bachelor degree in Health Sciences (Naturopathy) and advanced diplomas in nutrition, herbal medicine and massage. She has also completed extensive post-graduate training in treatment for metabolic, neurologic, digestive and immune disorders.

A prolific writer, Helen was called on to write a chapter on paediatrics for a peer-reviewed Clinical Naturopathic Medicine published by Elsevier in 2011.

However you’re more likely to recognise her as a co-author of her best-selling books “BubbaYumYum” with Charlotte Carr and Pete Evans and The Complete Gut Health Cookbook with Pete Evans; the latter debuting at no.1 in the lifestyle charts, and remaining in the top 10 since publication (over 50,000 copies sold and counting!).

Of course, her passion for wellness isn’t just confined to office hours. Helen carries over the themes of nature and health in her downtime, whether that’s walking in nature, playing in the ocean, working on her fitness or spending quality time with her friends and family.

Helen finds nothing more satisfying than seeing patients and clients inadvertently spread inspiration to friends and family around them.

Vitality, it turns out, is contagious!

"Helen Padarin is a pioneer in the wholefoods movement in Sydney and further afield and is an instrumental force in educating people on real nutrition both in her clinical practice as a naturopath and in her work as an author and speaker. She taught me how to ferment veggies over 10 years ago and this has become one of the core product lines of my business. I'm very grateful for what she has brought to my life personally and to the lives of countless people in the broader community. Wholefoods rockstar!" Soulla Chamberlain - Star Anise Organic


You will be provided all of the following goodness and resources in 9V9:

  • The 9V9 Information and Recipe eBook, packed with simple, nutritionally-balanced and delicious recipes (ranging from smoothies, snacks, light meals and dinners).

  • A 9V9 Veggie list and a list of pantry staples (which will provide a framework to use long after the nine days is up).

  • Access to an exclusive and inclusive Facebook community where you can ask questions, swap stories and feel inspired.

  • Facebook Live Q&A's with booked-out Naturopath Helen Padarin.

  • A kick-start in your total health journey.

There are no 'rules' in 9V9. And it's going to be okay!

When we created this program, we looked into options of delivering the content and recipes and how these would be structured.

One of the key things we found in the research (hard data based on case studies outside our own backyards... but that too.) was that the more rules that were placed around a program, the more reasons human beings would decide to throw in the towel on day two.

It has been proven, that the more rigid a 'diet' plan, the higher the % of people who 'quit' on day 2 rather than working through the program. (And that if day two is a Tuesday, even more!)

** I know so many of you are going to relate to this. Maybe you can recognise yourself in this too. 'Tuna for lunch on Monday with a portion size of 100grams? But I hate tuna! What to do, What to do? Eat the junk at the downstairs cafe of course. **

This is why we decided to give you the support, the recipes, the ideas and the inspiration (and of course the WHY), and allow you to choose your own adventure and not place a structured meal plan in place at this time.

It means we aren't going to tell you exactly what to eat and when, THOUGH of course, you will be provided with shopping lists, recipe books, incredible options for packing the veg into your daily meals and so much more inspiration. You can follow the recipes in the guides to the letter, or you can riff on your own and eat the same meal three times a day if you so desire.

Pack/cook/create as much of those rainbow coloured vegetables into your day as possible. If you were to choose three meals from the recipe book a day your 9 cups is going to be easy!

The recipes have been created primarily from Helen herself and so a balance of nutrients your body needs is at the forefront of these.

We know this 'free-wheelin'' with the info, may be daunting for some of you and so if this is your first 9V9, please know that you are going to be supported.

We recommend trying something new every day and choose the meals that you love and suit your family. Some of them like the crackers and dips, are great to make in larger batches so you can snack on them throughout the day. Then there is so much more to be inspired by.


By the end of this nine day detox, you’ll be shocked at how easy it can be to feel happy, healthy and confident.

You can expect;

  • Your digestive system to function better.
  • Your energy and confidence to improve.
  • Your immune system to be given a re-boot.
  • To learn new tasty tricks to cook vegetables (you’ll be craving them by the end).
  • Bucket loads of compliments on your new glow!

This program is designed to give you the get you started along a new path and on track to heal your health - for good!

Make this your year and feel revitalised, energised and vibrant.

After all, it only takes 9 days!
