Dra. Adriana Cortés

Dr. Adriana is a a medical doctor who is an expert in Transforming People's Health by educating them in a simple and profound way about the nutrition they should adopt to solve the cause of their illnesses.

She graduated in Medicine from the Universidad Javeriana in 2002 and holds a Master’s degree in International Public Health with honours from the University of Sydney, Australia.

After working for five years in medical research at the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research (in affiliation with this university) leading national epidemiological projects, she found her true passion in 2008 in nutrition, when she helped her mother successfully reverse degenerative arthritis with Sjögren’s syndrome through nutrition. 

He also guided his father in reversing rosacea, gouty arthritis and cardiovascular disease, all of which he suffered from for a long time.

Also Dr. Adriana was able to reverse the polycystic ovary syndrome that had afflicted her since 1999 and was able to become pregnant with two beautiful children.

Despite excellent results for herself, her family and acquaintances, there was one aspect that had not been resolved: her constant difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight.

After being diagnosed with grade I obesity in 2015, she realised that she lacked further insight into the scientific evidence supporting this diet, so she decided to formalise her nutrition education that year with the T. Colin Campbell Centre for Nutrition Studies Certificate in Nutrition in partnership with eCornell.

In 2017 she became the official Spanish translator of Dr. Campbell’s website. Over the last few years he and his team have carried out this responsibility and have translated over six hundred and fifty articles on optimal human nutrition, its ability to prevent and reverse different chronic degenerative diseases, different aspects of lifestyle (including exercise) and multiple testimonials on the variety of benefits of nutrition for people around the world, among others.

During this period, he was confronted with another personal experience that taught him that a truly healthy lifestyle included aspects beyond food and exercise.

She became seriously ill because she did not have the tools to manage her stress and this led her to seek more information on how she could address this important aspect of her health.

After two years of training with the New Humanity organisation, he acquired information that would change his emotional life forever and, with these new tools, he was able to verify the veracity of these tools.

The Dra. Adriana Cortés is also certified by Dr. McDougall’s Health and Medical Center’s The Starch Solution Certification program and members of her team are graduates of the Forks Over Knives course.

After experiencing the benefits of dietary change since 2008 and more specifically optimal nutrition since 2015, he decided to found Bien Plantado – a public health initiative to educate the public about nutrition – and through this venture has educated over 2000 people about optimal nutrition and helped hundreds more reverse diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, certain cancers, overweight and obesity, among others.

The Dra. Adriana Cortés continues to work constantly to bring the message of an optimal lifestyle to Latinos in different countries around the world. This message includes: optimal human nutrition, daily stress management, and consistent exercise habits. Through Bien Plantado he has created an interactive community of daily support and encouragement for anyone who wants to start a truly healthy lifestyle.

To be Bien Plantado,
and healthy for life!
