I have been an admirer of Dr. Christiane Northrup for the past 30 years. Her pioneering efforts in the integration of complementary healthcare approaches into mainstream medicine were profoundly influential for me at a time when I was looking for new ideas to expand my practicing repertoire as it related to neurological conditions. She is a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist and former assistant clinical professor at the Maine Medical Center.
In our recent The Empowering Neurologist interview, we discussed her latest book, Goddesses Never Age. I will say at the outset that this was one of the most important books I have ever read. Based on the title, you might think this is a book exclusively for women, but this is absolutely not the case. There is great wisdom in this incredible work for everyone in terms of the messages to honor our desires, respect ourselves and others, along with fundamentally important health information that transcends gender.
