Praise for the works of Christiane Northrup, M.D.
The Wisdom of Menopause
“…One menopause book does rise…above the rest. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, [The Wisdom of Menopause] is the bible of middle-aged womanhood.”—Sandra Tsing Loh, The Atlantic

The Wisdom of Menopause offers an honest look at the menopausal transition. This is sometimes painful, sometimes humorous, but never boring. If you are looking for realistic, positive, and constructive solutions to the inevitable challenges of life, then look no further—you have found your sourcebook.”—The North American Menopause Society
“Northrup writes from experience and, more important, from her professional expertise as a physician who has treated many women and researched menopause. The specific medical advice on sleep, diet, breast health and the empowerment motif will bring insight, comfort and confidence to women embarked on ‘the change.’ ”
—Publishers Weekly

Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom to all women and also to all men who want to understand and nourish the women in their lives.”—Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul
“A masterpiece for every woman who has an interest in her body, her mind, and her soul.”—Caroline Myss, Ph.D., author of
Defying Gravity

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." Her books, Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to A Divinely Inspired Life (Hay House, 2016), and Dodging Energy Vampires (Hay House, April 2018) were immediate successes, both offering Dr. Northrup's advice and perspective regarding "upstream" preventive medicine.

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. As a business owner, physician, former surgeon, mother, writer, speaker, and, according to Miriam Ava Ph.D., a "rebel, rock star 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. And after decades spent transforming women's understanding of their sacred bodies and processes, she now shows women how to thrive at every stage of life.

In 2016, Dr. Northrup was named one of Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul 100, a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity. In 2018, Dr. Northrup received the first Mind/Body Healing award, a special category within the New Thought Walden Awards, honoring those who use empowering spiritual ideas and philosophies to change lives and make the planet a better place. In 2020 and 2021 Dr. Northrup was named in the Watkins Spiritual 100, a list of living people that make a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale.
