Christiane NorthrupChristiane Northrup

Today’s episode is with the very wise Dr. Christiane Northrup. She’s an OBGYN who has been the leader in holistic female health since the early 1990s. She’s been featured on Oprah several times and her many best selling books have helped shift people’s approach to health (like the bigger picture ‘health’ that expands beyond the physical), especially for women. For long-time pod listeners you may remember that I interviewed her daughter Kate Northrup as one of my first guests on the show. Dr. Northrup is so wise and gives such interesting information about sex, pleasure, and relationships as well as so much more in this episode. In our conversation we cover her background and her past work, why it has been so important and how that has led her to the work she is doing now and her latest book she wrote.  We cover her wisdom gained on ‘getting older’, the changes in the medicine and wellness industry, the importance of embracing sexuality, the interconnectedness (in our bodies and beyond). She lists so many good resources in this episode, especially books, so be sure to check out the show notes below.If you have any questions for Dr. Northrup or myself  tweet at us or reach out to us in the Facebook Group here.
