Episode Summary

Women in our society are taught that being miserable is just a normal part of mid-life, and nothing could be further from the truth. By taking control over what is happening within your body during this time of transition, you can make sure that life is happening for you, not to you. It is totally within your power to reinvent who you are during this time and what this next phase is going to look like for you with the right knowledge and natural remedies.

Tuning Into Your Inner Wisdom with Dr. Christiane Northrup

Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer in women’s health. Along with being a board-certified OB/GYN with more than thirty years of clinical experience, former assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, she is also a three-time New York Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s WisdomThe Wisdom of Menopause and Goddesses Never Age. Dr. Northrup embraces medicine that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit and teaches women to create health by tuning into their inner wisdom.

Don’t Listen to the Narrative Society Pushes onto You

Big pharma and the mainstream media have been pushing the agenda of pills, suffering, and the patriarchy for years. Because of this false story, women have been forced to buy into the narrative that there is nothing you can do when it comes to the transition of perimenopause and menopause and that this is the beginning of the end.

Dr. Christiane wants you to know that is absolutely incorrect. You have the power to transition from your previous ‘normal’ to something more beautiful than you could ever imagine. By owning your power and going inside yourself to discover the things that inspire and uplift you, it is possible to have this next phase be whatever you want it to.

Nourishing Your Body from Cell to Soul

The planned decrepitude that is part of our culture does not have to be part of your experience. Through the little ways, you love and nourish yourself from cell to soul will set the tone for how you experience this next phase of your journey. The changes your body is going through are not a betrayal, but simply an opportunity to push the envelope and discover what is truly going on inside of you.

Through simple, natural, and effective remedies, you can take back control of this transition, dip into the fountain of youth, and reclaim your voice. How you experience perimenopause and menopause is up to you, so what are you waiting for!

Are you ready to embrace every single phase of your life, including the new beginning that happens with menopause? Share what you are most excited to integrate into your journey with me in the comments below!


“Yes, there are all these things that you can do. But you have to really look at the fact that this menopausal transition is a rebirth. It is a rebirth and it is going to bring up all of the unhealed business of your past.” (12:43)

“The feminine is under attack, the womb is under attack, so more than ever we need the wisdom of menopause, we need the wisdom of essential oils, we need that feminine wisdom.” (21:17)

“There is a whole lot of life after menopause. The average age of the final period that is menopause is 52. So think about it, 52 to 80, that’s a lot of time. Are you going to use that running to the doctor, getting on prescription meds, or are you going to use it building the best body you have ever had in terms of strength and flexibility? Having the most fun you have ever had, finally, because you have had your job and your career and your family, it’s your time!” (25:22)

“There are energetic cycles that the female body goes through, and this is when you wire in more wisdom. I can’t explain it, but I have seen it.” (39:46)

“Yes, you have to feel your feelings and grieve your losses, you have too. But on the other hand, you cannot do well in the time past menopause if you are in the victim position.” (44:45)
