Finally, the myth that New Year’s resolutions are something that everyone can manage has been dispelled. Most people now realise that committing to big, life-changing decisions is easier said than done and most of us fall off the wagon within days or weeks of promising ourselves we can change fundamental aspects of our life in the blink of an eye.
It really isn’t that simple. If it were, we’d all be productive, non-procrastinating fitness models who eat clean and always make great choices. Life simply doesn’t work that way.
That said, making small, sustainable changes is something that we can all do at any time of the year to look and feel better. Adio is a new health and wellness portal that gives members not only a much-needed sense of community and belonging, but a wide range of advice on how people can take responsibility for their own health with small, easy to implement changes.
Adio is the brainchild of two doctors and sisters, Jess Braid and Xandra Middleton who also run a busy clinic in Cheshire. Xandra is a doctor of chiropractic and Jess is a trained NHS doctor who specialises in treating people using alternative health approaches including nutrition, functional medicine, Chinese medicine and more.
For a small monthly subscription, Adio members get full access to a comprehensive set of resources, including webinars, toolkits, articles, recipes, classes and much more. Adio members can access the very best of conventional, traditional and alternative approaches to wellbeing with meticulously referenced and cited content all in one place. This approach gives people new options for how they take control of their healthcare, rather than assuming that one size fits all.
Adio breaks health down into nine different zones:
- The Hub, where users will find a recipe bank, yoga, meditation and mindfulness classes and information on herbs and supplements. They can enrol for free in Adio’s ground-breaking courses – Dr Xandra’s posture programme, Realign and Refresh, a revolutionary 30 day “food as medicine” reset from Dr Jess.
- Brain function and mental health
- Family life and pet health
- Gut health and digestion
- Hormones and sexual health
- Immune and infection
- Staying well and keeping fit
- Structure and movement
- Symptoms and diseases
Each zone contains a range of resources to help Adio users to make small, easy to implement and sustainable changes to their health, in a mission to prevent healthcare issues before they start and to tackle the root causes of illnesses, rather than simply treating symptoms.
Membership costs just £10 a month (cancel anytime) and goes towards not only improving people’s health, but to making the world a better place too. Adio is a privately funded venture, based on a sustainable business model, with the site hosted on a green server and Adio members earning coins for interacting with Adio (by completing lessons or participating in conversations), which they can donate to good causes on the site. This sense of doing good and helping others is why Adio is working towards becoming a charitable trust where all profits will be donated to good causes in the future.
You can try a seven-day trial by visiting Adio.
