Hi crazy hair .... #naturalcurls Still probably rocking my #balibelly efforts from last few days 🤢 #needtowashhair heading home soon .. few hours left ! But going back with a host of ideas on what to do with my life including .. getting to grips with my hormones with @drmartinkinsella But in the mean time got a clear mind a bit of a tan and loads of IV scars to show when back 😂🙈🙄
She told her 226k followers: "There wouldn't be a holiday Heaton-style unless something major happened.
"Last night I collapsed from severe dehydration. It just goes to show you need to drink lots of water.
"My problem was I had Bali belly at the same time. I was dripped up to an IV and I'm much better now.
"Be careful what you eat and drink in foreign countries, especially the ice, because I was not very well at all.
"I was very very very sick."
Michelle also admitted she had thrown up raw fish all over the restaurant, hotel and outside the taxi as she battled a brutal episode of food poisoning.
The singer revisited her night or horrors the next day, posting a selfie as she explained she was still recovering from a sore stomach.
The caption read: "Hi crazy hair. Still probably rocking my #balibell efforts from last few days.

"But in the mean time got a clear mind a bit of a tan and loads of IV scars to show when back."
Michelle has been documenting her healing journey online, sharing snaps of herself exercising and relaxing in the sunshine during her blissful trip.
She told fans she was appreciative of the time out after dealing with a tough few years, revealing she wanted to visit the sanctuary following her double mastectomy.
"Sometimes life can be so busy, the last 8 years have had life changing moments! some for the better #children! some for the worst #BRCA! And then we ALL have everything in between," she wrote.
