Adrienne Hew has been called "the Nutrition Heretic" and "the Pope of Health" because she challenges the sacred cows of cult-like diets. Her unique insight has both Dietetic Associations and politically correct, so-called alternative health advocates scrambling to justify their broken theories about health that have contributed to the current outbreak of new and seemingly irreparable diseases. Ms. Hew began her holistic health journey after suffering innumerable health problems while following the American Dietetics Association's dietary recommendations. Her brush with death, after being treated by a now very popular vegan doctor, set her on a quest to learn the dietary commonalities amongst all healthy societies. Using her fluency in three languages, she has been able to uncover many long forgotten food traditions throughout the world. Receiving a certificate in Chinese dietetics in 2002 and her degree as a Certified Nutritionist in 2004, she has helped many clients and workshop attendees to decode their own health dilemmas by understanding the inconsistencies in conventional nutritional dogma. As a cook, her recipes have been popular with everyone from celebrated chefs to picky 4 year olds and adults who "don't eat that." She currently resides in Hawaii with her husband and two children.
