Christiane Northrup, M.D.
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.” And 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.
Internationally known for her empowering approach, Dr. Northrup embraces medicine that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit, and teaches women to create health by tuning into their inner wisdom. After decades spent transforming women’s understanding of their sacred bodies and processes, Dr. Northrup now teaches women to thrive at every stage of life. In her latest book Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to a Divinely Inspired Life, Dr. Northrup reveals her long-hidden secrets to mind/body/spirit well-being.
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.
