Ayurvedic detox retreat in Istria
17.09. – 24.10.2021.

Over the years and in time, due to lifestyle choices, diet and stress, our body accumulates toxins. Every person intakes food, air, positive and negative thoughts and life situations, feelings and stress…

Our body processes all intakes, both physical and mental, and uses whatever it needs, correctly or not, to provide cell nutrition in order to maintain physical and mental balance. Waste materials that are used, processed and unnecessary, body with its metabolic process eliminates through sweat, urine, feces and used energy. If there is a stagnation in metabolic activity, toxins accumulate in our body and disturb our normal physiological functions. They create havoc in our circulation, digestion, thought process, lymph flow and nerve impulses.

Nutrition and nurture of the cells becomes disturbed, and information takes longer to spread. Optimal cellular function slowly weakens due to various blockages in the body.


Body’s need for detox

Similar to our house pets, and our motor vehicles, at least once a year our body also needs a cleanse, a detox. Animals have inbred instinct for cleansing. Humans have this intuition as well, but over time we have forgotten all about it.

“Detox is a vital component of all natural medicine.”

Fast and detox through history
Throughout history, people always recognized that a yearly cleanse is essential for a good health. Even more so, every major religion included important fasts in its rituals and customs (Easter and Christmas fast, Yom Kippur fast, Ramadan fast, etc), as well as smaller fasts in several intervals throughout the year.
Simple detox through fasting
When person feels lethargic and unwell, or when they overindulge in drinks or food, the best detox is to simply skip several meals, allowing for quality absorption of all the previous intake and blockages, and elimination of all unnecessary waste, thus preventing its precipitation in the body.


“After just 5 days at the intensive detox program I lost 4.5 kg. I feel much better, with more enthusiasm and energy. My appetite has decreased and I continue with recommendation regarding tailored diet assigned to me. The accommodation and facilities are great, based in central Istria, with an incredible landscape, peace, quiet. It is a paradise for body and soul. The staff of Branko, Nebojša and Aleksandra are excellent connoisseurs of the subject of Ayurveda and I thank them once again for their effort and patience during 5 wonderful days! ”

“A beautiful house on an unforgettable hill in the heart of Istria. The hosts are very kind and great chefs who know how to assist and guide people. Today I think about food in a different way and at the same time feel satisfied and healthy. I never tried ayurvedic sauna before as well as most of the treatments. Great body and head massage that pleasantly surprised me. The lymphatic drainage was also decovery. ”

– Lidija K., Split

"Detoxification was my most beautiful physical and spiritual journey. Positive energy and interesting new friendships greatly facilitated with the necessary cleansing my body needed. Daily massages, a customized diet and various other treatments completely removed back pain while health problems during a woman's cycle were completely eliminated. I'm looking forward to check in again.”

We differentiate toxins to the ones soluble in water and ones that bind to fats, or are soluble in fats. The ones that are soluble in water, if we are conscious of their existence, are relatively easy to eliminate. Correctly chosen fresh ascetic diet – local, seasonal, organic, mostly bitter. Well balanced combination of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fruits and vegetables. Lots of warm liquid intake, and in few days, just like in fasting, we can eliminate toxins soluble in water.

What to do with the toxins that bind to fats and which toxins are those?

Ayurvedic detox program, known as Panchakarma, is the only proven method of removing toxins soluble in fats, including:

Panchakarma process

Panchakarma is individual detox program comprising series of established well-known procedures and therapies, special massages, use of steam and dry saunas, deep relaxation, and moderate physical activity.
Similar to any treatment, in Panchakarma there is a need to prepare our body for the main treatment of the actual toxin release and purification process. Success of a prescribed therapy is highly dependent on pre-purification, making preparation the most important step in the whole therapy. In our Ayurveda Detox Center Glavini we mainly use one of the three major Ayurvedic detox methods:

  • Basti or enema
  • Virechan or purgation
  • Nasya or elimination of toxins through the nose (nasal administration).

For more details and treatment description, please read on Treatments …

Antiage događaji


During the Panchakarma process, administration of medicinal fats is strictly controlled and adjusted as required – they accumulate toxins in the body and with the use of laxatives or an alternative mean eliminate from the body. Together with that process, special diet protocol is created based on individual needs.


Ideally, the whole process would take 21 days, however it is normally adjusted to meet the needs of today’s hectic lifestyle, and it can successfully and efficiently be completed within 7 to 14 days. Panchakarma is the only detox program that is really taking place at the cellular level.


Following this reset, with the use of correct and individually created diet plan, individually planed herbal remedies and teas, the body will, after some time, normally within three months, return to homeostasis, or natural balance. Already, within first 5 to 14 days, majority of people will feel regenerated, but real effects will follow later.


King’s Treatment. Shirodhara is one of the best known ayurvedic therapies.


This treatment opens and cleanses breathing pathways and sinuses from blockages and mucus


Special deep tissue full body massage using dry herbal powders, mostly triphala, fine corn flour or chickpeas. 


Bags filled with medicinal herbs when in contact with warm herbal oil release active substances deep into tissues and stimulate peripheral circulation.


Warm, high quality ayurvedic herbal oil (made up of over 40 different plants) is applied on the entire body, pulling toxins out through the skin and other tissues
