“The secret to thriving is the knowledge that we are never simply victims of our bodies. We have within us the ability to heal from anything and go on to live joy-filled lives.” - Dr. Christiane Northrup

 

Christiane Northrup, M.D. is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness.  She is a board-certified OB/GYN and a 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.  She is one of Reader’s Digest’s “100 Most Trusted People in America,” and one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100.

I strongly believe that achieving and maintaining physical health requires a holistic approach that needs to honor and connect the mind, body, and spirit. When I was planning for this episode, I knew that I couldn’t find anyone else in the world who could speak to this with greater authority and in a more loving and empowering way than Dr. Northrup. I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was when she accepted my invitation to be a guest on my podcast. I had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Northrup in Portland, Maine and simply being in her presence was a healing experience for me. I truly hope our conversation inspires you to love and befriend your body, feel empowered to tune into your inner guide, and design a life and career that honors you as a whole - mind, body, and soul. Enjoy!
