everything
in one place

Adio is democratising health and wellbeing. Being in good physical and mental shape should not be the preserve of the wealthy. If you don’t have top consultants at your fingertips, finding quality information normally requires trawling the web for hours, or waiting to see your GP or health provider.

We provide independent, expert, meaningful advice. We are passionate people who have made it our mission in life to challenge perceived truths about the world of health and wellbeing – by analysing the latest medical research and combining the most effective elements to create an empowering, ongoing programme of change.

We deliver knowledge from 3,000 years ago right up to today – that means natural medicine, conventional medicine and functional medicine.

Good health & wellbeing

join the
dots

We‘re empowering people to take control of their health, by demystifying health and wellbeing. It doesn’t matter if you are a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner; we have a range of resources to suit you and your health journey.

We give you evidence-based ways to better understand how the body’s systems are interconnected, without needing a degree in science to understand what it means for you and your health.

Our knowledge is shared through podcasts, videos, worksheets, events and the experiences of other like-minded members. Our online library has the resources that will help you to heal yourself from the inside-out.

By joining Adio, you’ll get full access to our exclusive members-only content, receive our Refresh eating plan and Realign posture programmes for free, and can purchase our premium range of vitamins, minerals and supplements at a discount.

proactive &
preventative

Illness and disease do not appear overnight. They develop over time. Yet healthcare systems are not set up to accommodate this unfortunate truth. Most of us are dissuaded from doing anything until something really bad happens – and by then it can be too late. We want to change that mindset. We provide a systematic approach to health and wellbeing that is proactive, rather than reactive.

It’s a fact that almost all of the UK’s healthcare budget goes on treating developed conditions, rather than on preventing them from occurring in the first place (about 98%, in fact). But, if you look at the root cause of most illnesses, the problem can often be traced back to a bad lifestyle choice or an unhealthy ingrained behaviour that was developed years ago.

Adio teaches you what those triggers are, and gives you strategies to help reverse any damage that’s already been done.

small 
steps

Adio is not about taking on a lifestyle overhaul that you’ll struggle to sustain. Instead, it’s about doing the best you can, by taking small, but sustainable steps towards making lasting, positive changes.

It’s about reading, watching, learning and connecting with others to find those small hacks and techniques to develop good habits and eliminate bad ones.

Adio is all about being better. Change isn’t easy and progress is never linear. It’s about getting through the bad days and powering through the great on the  journey to being a better version of yourself.

Heal with Adio

heal
together

There’s strength in numbers and that’s what makes the Adio community such a powerful force.

Sharing stories, listening and supporting others empowers us all. Adio groups is the place where our members connect with others and support one another, whether that is cheering someone up in a tough time, or getting support with how to hack your workouts – when we support one another, we empower ourselves to achieve our hopes, dreams and objectives. 

save the
planet

By joining Adio, you are helping us support others. Our Adio Awards enable members to give other members coins, that can be donated to good causes.

For every health supplement, course, or membership that we sell, we give back by giving a percentage of our profits to supporting the United Nations 17 sustainable development goals. Members are invited to decide who we donate to and the causes we support.

We want everyone to be a part of making that difference.

What is Adio?2021-09-17T14:16:35+01:00

Adio is a health portal with a difference. Adio is the brainchild of Drs Jess and Xandra, two sisters from the north of England who believe that health and wellness are about more than just good DNA. Dr Jess is a former NHS doctor who has also trained in functional, natural and Chinese medicine. This comprehensive appreciation of the many different approaches to health that there are has driven her to create Adio, along with her sister, Doctor of Chiropractic, Xandra.

Adio looks at health from the root causes, to the conditions and symptoms. Through webinars, podcasts, articles, toolkits and more, new approaches to common conditions are discussed, many of which are plant-based, natural and holistic.

Adio gives people choices. Rather than simply a tablet to mask symptoms, Adio drives users to look beyond a sticking plaster approach, to heal themselves properly and to take small steps towards better health.

Finally, Adio is about community. Members can connect and learn, support and grow together in a safe, compassionate and supportive environment.

Adio does all of this with a wider mission of making health advice available to all, and with the goal of giving back. Every Adio subscription includes a donation to charity. Adio members also earn Adio Awards, which they can donate to charities that they have a role in choosing. Every Adio product sold also includes a charitable donation. As Adio grows, the % donated to charity grows too, with a view that in the future, all profits will be donated this way.

What makes Adio different?2021-09-17T14:17:29+01:00

Adio takes a different approach to health. The latest research and scientific thinking takes over a decade before the UK NHS starts giving GPs the information that can literally change lives.

Having worked as a doctor in the NHS, Jess knows the science fact from the science fiction, and Adio shares the latest, credible thinking on new approaches to health, backed with citations, references and other sources. Jess also shares her own remedies, taken from her home life and her work as a natural doctor and functional medical expert, and, along with her chiropractor sister, Xandra, they share this information via webinars, podcasts, articles, and toolkits, to empower Adio users to take control of their life and their health.

Adio isn’t some greenwashed big pharma thing. It’s two sisters, trying to change the world for the better, a little at a time. Adio recommends only products they love, do not take payments, sponsorships or incentives for promotion, and they have a clear, long-term goal for Adio to become a charitable trust. In the meantime, for every signup and every product sold, Adio donates a % to charity, and as Adio grows, the % donated will grow too.

Adio sees the power of change in forming alliances and groups of like-minded people. That’s why Adio members want to do their bit to help make the world a better place too. Adio’s small but rapidly growing community is a place for other people to connect, grow, share and learn – together.

What is the Refresh programme?2021-09-17T14:18:15+01:00

Dr Jess’s Refresh programme is a tried-and-tested 30 day food reset, designed to help break bad habits, calm inflamed and leaky guts and nourish the body with essential vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, to help you look better and, most importantly, feel better. Already tried and tested by thousands of Dr Jess’s patients, the Refresh programme teaches you how to build a new, healthy and enduring positive relationship with food. The plan can be followed for weight loss or to simply reset your gut health and break bad habits, and is available to non-Adio members as an ebook or, for Adio members, as an easy to follow toolkit, with the companion ebook and support group.

The Refresh programme:

  • Shows you how to prepare to start the plan and how just 30 days can change your relationship with food for good

  • Gives our key principles for good eating

  • Explains why (and how) the health of your gut can affect multiple areas of your wellness and be a major cause of health problems

  • Tells you why diets are problematic

  • Shows how stress can affect your health and throw you off course

  • Teaches you how to reset your gut balance with healthy, nutritious food

  • Tells you the best superfoods to eat for optimal health

  • Explains the key nutrients your body needs to be healthy

All this is provided, along with:

  • Detailed weekly shopping lists

  • Tasty and delicious, nutritionally balanced recipes and snacks

  • Daily meal plans, with complete nutritional breakdowns and analysis

  • Plan-ahead tips to make staying on track easy

  • Alternative meal options and hacks for dietary restrictions

  • How to plan your own meals

  • Strategies to stay on track after the 30 days

What is the Realign programme?2021-09-17T14:18:45+01:00

As one of the UK’s leading chiropractors, Dr Xandra has seen and treated back, neck and joint problems for over 13 years. These problems occur for a number of reasons: as a result of an accident or injury, general wear and tear or, most commonly, as a gradual result of poor posture and movement.

The Realign programme shows you how to take control of those joint problems and, in just a few minutes a day, transforms your posture to eliminate those aches and pains for good.

The Adio Realign programme has been designed by Dr Xandra to firstly identify your posture type by taking a simple quiz. Then, you follow the specific guide for your posture type, to help to strengthen the muscles you need to rid yourself of those aches and pains and to move more freely, stand taller and live life mobile, active and with greater energy.

The Realign programme is free to Adio members, and £xx for non-members.

What is Adio One.?2021-09-17T14:19:21+01:00

Adio One is Dr Jess and Dr Xandras’ very own custom-blended premium daily multivitamin and mineral supplement, made with the most bioavailable core ingredients, to optimise absorption and nutritional benefit. Adio One is suitable for vegans, and is free of all GMO’s, fillers, gluten, soy, sugar, dairy and artificial flavourings and colours.

Suitable for men, women and children and adults of all ages and life stages, Adio One is perfectly balanced and uses gentle, yet effective forms of all the core vitamins and minerals our bodies need each day. Jess and Xandra have carefully sourced each vitamin in Adio One and perfectly balanced the formula for the optimal daily dose.

Adio One is also an environmentally sound choice. The recyclable glass bottle is printed with a biodegradable paper label that is attached with biodegradable glue, rather than unsustainable plastic and resins. And the vitamins themselves contain one core thing – pure, unadulterated, highly bioavailable vitamins and minerals. The capsule is sugar, soy, gluten, colour and flavour free, there are no genetically modified ingredients and the ingredients are suitable for those on a vegetarian or vegan diet.

What is Plant+?2021-09-17T14:19:59+01:00

Dr Jess has used her extensive knowledge of the power of Chinese, herbal, functional and integrative medicine to develop Plant+, an optimised combination of three of the most effective organically-certified adaptogens, to help you feel and look your best. Plant+ is suitable for vegans, and is free of all GMO’s, fillers, gluten, soy, sugar, dairy and artificial flavourings and colours.

One of the most powerful types of medicinal herbs, adaptogens are key proponents of health and wellness; considered to be natures’ own medicines. Adaptogens help to regulate the stress response and to boost immune health and energy levels.

Blending herbs for an adaptogen supplement is a specialised skill and this is where Jess’ experience as a doctor, treating thousands of patients for almost 15 years is invaluable. She has seen for herself with her patients the optimal blends and strengths of the adaptogens that can truly transform people’s life and energy levels.

Suitable for men, women of all ages and life stages*, Plant+ contains three of the most powerful adaptogens in an optimised blend of Soil Association-certified organic ingredients.

Adio is all about doing what we can to make the world a better place. It’s about helping others to help themselves and taking a collective approach to doing our bit to make the world a pleasant place to be.

Adio isn’t some greenwashed big pharma venture, that’s trying to look ethical. It’s two sisters, trying to change the world for the better, a little at a time.
