    Dr. Christiane Northrup’s vision of mind-body wellness has received an extraordinary response from women all over the world. Her groundbreaking classic, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, updated and revised in 2006, powerfully demonstrates that when women change the basic conditions of their lives, they heal their health problems faster, more completely, and with far fewer medical interventions.

    In Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, Dr. Northrup covers the treatment of many health concerns—among them PMS, menstrual cramps, breast cysts, fibroids, cervical dysplasia, endometriosis, infertility, depression, and cystitis—explaining how many of these physical problems have roots in emotional upsets or lifestyle choices.

    Dr. Northrup also guides you through many life cycles, including menstruation, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, post-partum, perimenopause, and menopause, teaching you to harness the innate power and wisdom of these stages.

    Dr. Northrup also describes how to tap into your intuitive guidance system to use the messages in the body, mind, and emotions to heal.
