Christiane Northrup, M.D., visionary pioneer in women's health, is a board-certified ob/gyn, former assistant clinical professor of ob/gyn at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, and three-time New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause and Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-being. In 2013, Reader's Digest named Dr. Northrup one of the 100 Most Trusted People in America. In 2016, she was named one of Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul 100, a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity. And in 2020 & 2021, Watkins Magazine named Dr. Northrup on their “Watkins Spiritual 100 List” as one of their 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People – spiritual teachers, activist, authors, and thinkers that change the world.
A multiple New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Northrup’s book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001, 2006, 2012, 2021) has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wisdom when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenges convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be fixed, but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness." The new, fully-revised 4th edition (May, 2021) includes current research on everything from hormone testing and replacement to more effective, less invasive fibroid treatments, and from releasing extra pounds, to supplements that are even better than botox for a youthful appearance. Plus so much more.
As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, speaker, and, according to Miriam Ava Ph.D., a rebel, rockstar and authority on what can go right with the female body, Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance.
When she's not traveling, Dr. Northrup loves dancing Argentine tango, going to the movies, getting together with friends and family, boating, and reading.
