More About the Author
Author, acupuncturist, and herbalist Aimee Raupp is a women's health and fertility expert. Her mission is to educate and inspire women, improve their health, celebrate their beauty, and prevent disease, as well as increase their fertility. Aimee helps her clients reconnect to the presence of their optimal health.
Aimee holds a Master of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA, and a Bachelor's degree in biology from Rutgers University in New Jersey. She is licensed by the State of New York to practice acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbology, and is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
As a neurobiology research scientist in her twenties, Aimee began experiencing personal health issues. Frustrated by Western medicine's inability to provide answers and unable to find relief, Aimee sought solutions from Eastern medicine. She began acupuncture treatment and discovered how a mind-body-nutrition approach was key to overcoming her illness and maintaining good long-term health. Inspired by her personal experience, Aimee has dedicated her life to the practice of Traditional Oriental Medicine ever since.
Aimee's third book,Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: How to Improve Your Fertility Now & Into Your 40s (Demos Health, June 2014), which was endorsed by Deepak Chopra, combines her clinical expertise and personal experience helping scores of women -- many of whom have been told they had poor fertility outlooks -- to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and have healthy babies. The book builds upon the success of the 2012 e-release of a dietary guide and meal plan for optimal female fertility.
In alignment with her belief that everything women ingest should be "fertility friendly" -- that is, of the highest quality, organic, natural ingredients - Aimee began her search for "fertility friendly" skincare and beauty products. She soon discovered that most beauty products on the market were riddled with synthetic, chemical ingredients; certainly, if these ingredients shouldn't be eaten, they shouldn't be absorbed by the body's largest organ, our skin! Aimee knew she had to start formulating her own products, so she developed the Aimee Raupp Beauty line of original, organic products. The line is an extension of Aimee's desire to improve health and beauty utilizing ingredients that meet her strict criteria; a full range of products includes everything from Organic Anti-aging Facial Oil to Organic Belly Butter.
Aimee has appeared on ABC Television's "The View", FOX Television's "Good Day New York", Martha Stewart Radio, and Yahoo! Shine, and in numerous national magazines. She has served as spokesperson for Culturelle, Whole Foods, lululemon athletica, and the American Leisure Spa Group. She is also a frequent women's health columnist and an active blogger for many sites including The Huffington Post.
Aimee is also the author of Chill Out & Get Healthy (Penguin) and Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now and Into Your 40s. She is currently in private practice in Manhattan, the Hamptons and Nyack, NY. For additional information, please visit YesICanGetPregnant.com and AimeeRaupp.com.
