The founder of Bioli Medical and Wellness resort is Tamaz Mchedlidze M.d., a healthcare specialist and expert in wellness medicine. Though his roots lie in Georgia, Dr. Mchedlidze has lived and worked abroad for many years. Medicine has been practiced in his family for decades, as his great grandmother was a doctor and several other family members have grown to become successful doctors as well.
After graduating from the First State Medical University of Leningrad in 1991, Dr. Mchedlidze founded the first system of private medical clinics in the Russian Federation that were equipped with ultra-modern medical equipment. His 22 clinics employ 1,600 highly-qualified professionals, including 350 practicing physicians with a wide range of specialties.
Having accumulated considerable experience in the field of healthcare management, Dr. Mchedlidze defended his Phd thesis in 1997 and his doctorate thesis in 2000.
Although Dr. Mchedlidze became a greatly successful businessman over the years, he struggled with obesity. By 2004, the highly influential doctor weighed 164 kg. Because he himself was not healthy, he found it difficult to council others about their health. As he intended to set a good example for his patients, he decided to improve his overall fitness. With the help of his team of experts, Dr. Mchedlidze managed to shed 74 kg in just over a year.
After this impressive accomplishment, Mchedlidze became convinced that the key to good health lies not in treating disease, but in the early prevention of disease. As such, Dr. Mchedlidze, along with his colleagues, began to develop a concept based on early prevention. After an exhaustive, detailed study, his team came to the conclusion that the starting point in healing the body should begin at the basic unit of life – on the cellular level. This is precisely the concept being implemented today at Bioli Medical Wellness Resort.
“our work is based on the real state of the human body. We are building our activity through the prism of the health of the body, rather than through pleasurable sensations. This is the difference between our resort and many others,” notes Dr. Mchedlidze. That is why Bioli is referred to as a medical wellness resort. “all the principles on which Bioli’s work is based, have been tested on myself, and I can guarantee that they are very effective.”
For this purpose it was necessary to choose an appropriate location. It was decided that the best conditions for the implementation of the Bioli concept was in Dr. Mchedlidze’s historical homeland – Georgia. The small country located in the South Caucasus where the crossroads of Europe and Asia meet, provided the ideal conditions for such a project. In fact, there are more healing herbs (plants) and mineral waters in Georgia than there are on the entire European continent. Georgia was also home to Medea, the first Georgian healer. Medea was responsible for overseeing a famous garden in Georgia known for its many healing herbs (the term medicine owes its name to Medea).
The opening of a resort of this magnitude made it necessary to attract highly-qualified personnel. That’s why we selected the town of Kojori, just outside of Tbilisi, where fresh air is abundant and guests are treated to beautiful panoramic views of the city.
Bioli’s proximity to Tbilisi has also led to the creation of a new international specialty in Georgia – wellness therapist. The new course has already been registered at the State Medical University of Tbilisi and relevant graduate courses have been created.
So what exactly is Bioli?
Some think that Bioli is a resort with fresh mountain air. Others have come to believe Bioli is a rehabilitation center or simply a spa. Some even think that Bioli is a futuristic weight-loss center, bearing in mind my history of radical weight-loss.
To be fair, Bioli is all of these things and much more. Bioli is a brand new project having no equivalent the world over. For simplicity’s sake, we have called it a medical wellness resort, and we refer to the health professional who work here as wellness therapists.
What is the difference between Bioli and other wellness resorts?
Bioli is the only wellness resort that is based solely on a philosophy and concept that focuses on the early prevention of cellular disease processes. All of our work starts from the ground-up by having a deep understanding of the body’s functions.
When a person achieves a certain level of wealth or success, the desire to feel their best and be healthy for many years maintains and sometimes even intensifies.
My colleagues and I have decided to focus our efforts on the implementation of this desire, taking advantage of the international experience and knowledge available in the field of early preventive medicine.
What prevents a person from remaining healthy and what pitfalls might one face on this path?
We have found out that the main enemy of good health are a collective group of Stress Factors. They can be divided into six main groups:
Malnutrition – As they say, we are what we eat and drink. A poor choice of dietary products, along with unreasonable food combinations places great stress on your organs, various internal systems and the body as a whole.
Inadequate physical activity – A sedentary lifestyle without the proper exercise as well as excessive workout can lead to a great deal of stress on the organism.
Psychological overload – In today’s day and age, many socially active people must deal with large amounts of stress. Over time, this stress can cause failures in the organs and other systems in your body.
Chronic intoxication – Things such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol, and the frequent consumption of various drugs can have a dangerously adverse effect on the body.
Sleep disorder - During sleep, the work of all organs is adjusted, while one’s vitality is restores. A lack of full sleep can lead to serious stress on the body.
Stress factors must be dealt with. But in order to attain our goal, we need to have a starting point, which will allow us to measure these stress factors. And because our concept is based on preventing the emergence of problems at the cellular level, we begin with an objective assessment of the state of the body.
With the help of innovative diagnostic methods, we assess the level of free radicals and correlate those with the antioxidant activity of the cell. In the case that there is an imbalance at the cellular level, oxidative stress occurs, thus triggering a variety of negative processes beginning from early aging and ending with an increased risk of disease.
We also examine the number of micro elements found in the cells, including those that are toxic like heavy metals. We then study the structure of the body (according to 50 different parameters) and perform fitness and wellness testing. Finally, we perform diagnostics on the autonomic nervous system, genetic diagnostics and a range of other studies.
Based on these parameters, we build a science-based algorithm that we establish during the guest’s stay within the resort’s eco-friendly conditions, which are the most effective for their health.
A health improvement program is developed individually for each person.
The system includes the following:
A functional nutrition system consisting of natural products and individually added endemic phyto-resources (Georgia has the most diverse range of indigenous phyto-resources in the world)
Personalized physical activity program
Body detoxification procedures
Recommendations and appropriate actions are taken to improve the sleep.
Each program uses the most diverse range of endemic phyto-resources, and unique natural features of Georgia.
Bioli’s picturesque landscape, well-developed grounds, original architectural design and fresh air, create a positive attitude among all of our guests. Our rich cultural program, which includes local tours, rare wine and the best national dishes tastings all work in tandem to improve overall mood.
Upon completion of these therapeutic measures, we repeat the diagnostic tests, and the achieved successes are then shown to the guest.
