Many women believe that they are “victims of their hormones” because they go through a lot of suffering and mood swings during menopause and perimenopause. But Dr. Christiane Northrup, a leading expert on women's health and wellness, explains that it doesn't have to be this way.
While women in their forties tend to think that their best days are behind them, Dr. Northrup reveals that midlife and beyond is actually a wonderful time. In her latest talk as a featured speaker on the Hay House World Summit, Dr. Northrup gives practical advice on how instead of feeling de-vitalized, women can feel more vibrant and creative than ever.
Dr. Christiane Northrup Reveals the Truth about Women's Health
Dr. Christiane Northrup is a board-certified ob-gyn physician. She graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and has over 20 years' medical experience.
“I've spent the first half of my life studying and footnoting everything that can go wrong with the female body—and figuring out how to fix it,” said Dr. Northrup. “I'm dedicating the second half of my life to illuminating everything that can go right with the female body, including teaching women how to truly flourish.”
She focuses her talks on uniting the mind, body, and spirit in order to achieve better health at any age.
“I'm here to tell you that menopause does not have to be a battle with depression, weight gain, or insomnia,” she says, “Though you may have those symptoms, there's so much that you can do about them so that you can sail through this portion of your life into the best years of your life.”
You may be told that your body is naturally becoming weaker and more fragile and that drugs or surgery are the answers. The average doctor's visit lasts no longer than 15 minutes, and it seems like many medical professionals only provide band-aid solutions and simply assume you're going to get worse rather than better.
The discourse surrounding women's health is largely based on what can go wrong. Women, especially those over 40, find themselves subjected to a series of health screenings as they wait for some body part to fail them or develop cancer.
The truth is, women don't have to feel as if their future is going to be nothing but infirmity and disease. There are so many things we can do to maintain healthy bone density and muscle tone. Women over 40 don't have to feel as if they are no longer sexual beings. In fact, many women in their 60's and 70's are able to enjoy and express their sexuality.
“The good news is your body continuously regenerates itself,” says Dr. Northrup, “but you need to know how to give it the right tools to do that.”
