Travels from: Yarmouth, Maine
Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and the world's leading authority in the field of women's health and wellness. A board-certified OB/GYN physician who graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and did her residency at Tufts New England Medical Center, Dr. Northrup was also an assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at Maine Medical Center for 20 years. Recognizing the unity of body, mind, and spirit, Dr. Northrup helps empower women to tune into their innate inner wisdom to transform their health and truly flourish.
Dr. Northrup is the author of three New York Times best-selling books. Her first two best-sellers, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause, have transformed women's approach to health and understanding of their sacred bodies and processes. Her latest best-seller Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Wellbeing, inspires women (and men) with an entirely different mindset about what it means to grow older.
In 2005, Mother-Daughter Wisdom was Amazon's #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind-body health. In 2015, Goddesses Never Age was Amazon's #1 book in the health, fitness and diet, and women's health categories. In The Secret Pleasures of Menopause and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook, Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure.
Her children's book Beautiful Girl brings her positive message to the youngest of girls. Dr. Northrup's books have been translated into 24 languages.
