Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and the world’s leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness... She put her own personal truth on paper in 1994, in her first book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam). This groundbreaking classic quickly became a New York Times bestseller and has been the veritable bible of women’s health for nearly two decades. With its raw facts and intriguing case histories, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom explains how to “create physical and emotional health and healing.”

"Her second book, The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001), has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wise words when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be “fixed,” but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness.

"Dr. Northrup has more than 4.4 million books in print, in 24 languages. Mother-Daughter Wisdom, her third book (Bantam, 2005), was voted Amazon’s #1 book of the year in both parenting and mind/body health and was also nominated for a Quill Award. In her books, The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008) and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook (Hay House, 2009), Dr. Northrup outlines the crucial link between health and pleasure. Dr. Northrup's latest book, Beautiful Girl, (Hay House 2013) is a children's book that brings her positive message to the youngest of girls." [1]
