Full Bio

Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup teaches women how to thrive at every stage of life.

A board-certified OB/GYN physician, Dr. Northrup graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and did her residency at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston. She was also an assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at Maine Medical Center for 20 years.

Dr. Northrup has spent her life as an advocate for women’s health and wellness, first as a practicing OB/GYN physician for 25 years and now as an internationally respected writer and speaker. Her books have been translated into 24 languages.

She knows that the key to vibrant health on all levels is within us—our inner wisdom. “When we find the connection between our thoughts, beliefs, physical health, and life circumstances, we find that we are in the driver’s seat of our lives and can make profound changes. Nothing is more exhilarating or empowering.”

Clearly she “walks her talk.” She put her own personal truth on paper in 1994, with the first edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam). This groundbreaking classic quickly became a New York Times bestseller and has been the veritable bible of women’s health for nearly two decades. With its raw facts and intriguing case histories, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom explains exactly how to “create physical and emotional health and healing.”

Her second book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001, 2010), has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wise words when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged 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.

Mother-Daughter Wisdom, her third book (Bantam, 2005), was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind/body health and was also nominated for a Quill Award.

In The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008) and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook (Hay House, 2009), Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure.

Beautiful Girl, (Hay House, 2013) Dr. Northrup’s children’s book, brings her positive message to the youngest of girls.

Her newest book, Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Wellbeing (Hay House, February 2015), which quickly became a New York Times bestseller, will inspire women (and men) with an entirely different mindset about what it means to grow older.

Dr. Northrup recently founded A-ma-ta, a company which manufactures and distributes a product line featuring the Pueraria mirifica plant, a traditional medicine used by Thai women for 700 years. These health and beauty products help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, so women can truly thrive in the wisdom of this uniquely female life stage.

Dr. Northrup has also hosted eight highly successful public-television specials, beginning in 1998. Her latest is based on her newest book, Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Wellbeing (Hay House, February 2105), and first aired nationwide in February 2015.

Her work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today Show, NBC Nightly News, The View, Rachael Ray, Good Morning America, 20/20, and The Dr. Oz Show. As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, and speaker, Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance. Women clearly trust Dr. Northrup’s approach. In 2013, Reader’s Digest named her one of “The 100 Most Trusted People in America.”

When she’s not traveling and teaching, Dr. Northrup loves devoting her leisure time to dancing Argentine Tango, going to the movies, staying fit, getting together with her daughters and friends, boating, and reading.

Women′s Bodies, Women′s Wisdom
For the past 5000 years, the female body and everything having to do with it, have been seen as inferior to the male standard. For this reason, men and women both have been taught that the processes of the female body are at the best major inconveniences and at worst, curses visited upon women because Eve at the apple and thus brought evil to mankind. But we have now entered an era characterized by the rise in the status of women, and a growing global awareness of how gender abuse in all its many guises hurts all of us. Along with this rise in feminine consciousness has come the need to revise our thinking about the female body and its processes. Far from being a source of pain and shame, women all over the world – along with many scientists – are discovering that a woman′s body is deeply connected to the cycles of the earth – and that when we learn to respect and learn from these cycles, we enter the realm of true wisdom.

The Mind/Body Connection in Health: Trusting the Wisdom of Our Bodies
Consciousness creates the body. Our thoughts, emotions, past experiences, family histories, beliefs, relationships, nutrition, and exercise patterns all form a seamless web of energy and information that leads to our current state of health. Part of the art of living fully and healthfully is accepting that innate wisdom of our bodies as they give us daily feedback about what affects our health – either positively or negatively. When we come to see our bodily symptoms and feelings are our inner guidance system trying to get our attention, we are free to create health daily by making adjustments in our thoughts, emotions, perceptions, and nourishment levels vs. reacting only once disease has developed.

Becoming an Exceptional Person While Remaining Human: Eight Principles for Health & Happiness
In over 25 years of medical practice, Dr. Northrup has observed eight principles for approaching medical care – or life in general – that can, when applied consciously, enhance one′s ability to heal or remain healthy, while also living a joyous and fruitful life. Though she originally articulared these as “eight principles for becoming an exceptional doctor” when she was invited to address the graduating University of Vermont College of Medicine Class of 1997 at their commencement ceremony, she later realized that, whether we are doctors or patients or both, we all must embrace our common humanity if we are to experience optimal health and healing. These eight principles form a road map for this adventure.
