It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the new DrNorthrup.com! While I know that many of my readers have followed my work for years (even decades, in some cases), I want you to hear my story—why I love being at the headwaters of women’s health.
I became an ob/gyn because I wept with joy the first time I saw a baby being born. I was still in medical school, and nothing had ever moved me that much. After an ob/gyn residency, I started my career as a doctor in a conventional medical practice. And soon realized that a woman’s health (or lack thereof) was intimately related to her beliefs, behaviors, diet, relationships, and environment. I also witnessed the devastating effects of abuse of all kinds.
Despite this, I have also seen the inner power to heal that lives inside everyone—no matter what their past experiences have been. And I have seen that this power very often comes through the very processes that can be so problematic for women, including labor and birth, the menstrual cycle, and menopause.
Because of my experiences on the front lines of women’s health, I eventually started a different kind of medical practice—one that honored the sacred processes of the female body.
Now I’m working way upstream at the very headwaters of health… teaching women (and men) from all around the world how to:
- Trust what they know in their bones.
- Honor the wisdom of their bodies.
- Master the skills necessary for growing beyond any limiting beliefs, which may be adversely affecting their biology.
- And, most importantly, to welcome this truth: It’s possible to experience heaven—and joy—right here on earth.
