Christiane Northrup, M.D., board-certified ob/gyn, former assistant clinical professor of ob/gyn at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, New York Times best-selling author, is a visionary pioneer in women's health. After decades on the front lines of her profession as a practicing physician in obstetrics and gynecology, she is now dedicating her life to helping women truly flourish by learning how to enhance all that can go right with their bodies. Dr. Northrup is a leading proponent of medicine that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women's health and wellness, she teaches women (and many men) how to thrive at every stage of life and encourages them to create health on all levels by tuning in to their inner wisdom. 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. She is also thrilled with her company, Amata, whose name is derived from the Thai words for "ageless" and "eternal." This company is devoted to creating and distributing products that contribute to vibrant health and well-being throughout the life cycle (www.amatalife.com). When she's not traveling, Dr. Northrup loves devoting her leisure time to dancing Argentine tango, staying fit through Pilates and resistance stretching, going to the movies, getting together with friends and family, potluck dinners, boating, process painting, and reading. Dr. Northrup stays in touch with her worldwide community through her Internet radio show, Flourish!, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, her e-letter, and her website, www.drnorthrup.com.
