Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup is a leading proponent of medicine and healing that acknowledges the unity of the mind and body, as well as the powerful role of the human spirit in creating health. 

Dr. Northrup has dedicated her lifework to helping women (and the men who love them) learn how to flourish on all levels by creating health, prosperity, and pleasure in their lives.

She says, “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. 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.”

How many women do you know who love, listen, and act on what their body  needs?

I grew up with 6 sisters. All whom I thought were taller, thiner and prettier than me. I was the short one, with wild hair and plenty of curves.

I really didn’t appreciate my body until I began running when I was 27 years old. At the same time I quit eating red meat. I marveled at the physical changes that took place almost immediately.

Today, I continue to run, walk, hike and golf. I continue to struggle with consistent weight training. The one message my body has for me is “Strenghten your bones. There is no time to waste.”

This one action would take me into my final years without breaks and falls. I commit to strength training twice a week for the next 6 months. By that time it should be a habit! I’ll let you know how I progress!

How do you respect your body, your precious creation?

 

 As a valuable and beloved friend what message does your body have for you today?

What would happen if you truly trusted your body’s messages?

Plus the one year membership the lucky winner will recieve the “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom CD set!

Dr. Christine  Northrup is giving away one free membership to her new online interactive community—the Women’s Wisdom Circle!

    Hi Tess. I have one of Christine’s books: “The Wisdom of Menopause”. Studying the body and how it works has always been a huge interest of mine. I haven’t been all that friendly to mine as of late, but that is turning around now. A shift is happening and I’m noticing good things. This is a great thing you are doing for your readers to make all these resources available.

    I try to drink as much water as I can. It’s one thing that always has the power to make me feel better. My body is currently asking me” Do you really think looking at the treadmill and weights is working? 😉 I also realised yesterday that I’m spending too long online; it’s affecting my neck, my eyes, my posture and my general wellbeing.

    PS@Davina – thanks for mentioning the book. One to check out.

    WOW great post!!! My body is constantly telling me to move… just move, walk, yoga, stretch…MOVE. Do I listen, yep sometimes and then I feel FANTASTIC and in balance. When I don’t listen, I feel like today. Crappy. So thanks for this post, because I’m going to listen to my body and I’m off for a walk!!!

    Positively Present,
    I think you were referring to the previous post. I loved reading the comments as well.

    Davina,
    It always feels good when things turn around. A clean slate, new beginning and new choices are only a thought and action away. Thanks for the compliment. I love making my blog a valuable place to be. I’m happy you’re part of it.

    Janice,
    That’s funny! Too much time online begins to take over your body, mind and spirit. It’s tempting to do because there is so much to keep up with and learn. Then there’s the fear of being left behind if we don’t.

    I know I don’t have to remind you of balance my friend. Thanks for being real!

    Daphne,
    Me too. Are you up for a challenge? Let’s work together and hold each other accountable.

    Jenn,
    Glad I inspired you for a walk. We just came back from a 4 miler. Moving always feels great. One can’t lose when they move.

    Hi Tess .. I keep saying I need to walk down after I’ve seen my mother .. everytime I intend to start .. another challenge arises, when I need a car to carry things backwards and forward to the hospital or the Nursing Centre .. so I don’t – but as you say I must. Fortunately I’ve been pretty active through my life – so with any luck the basis is there ..

    I will get on and do something .. when it stops raining!!

    Thanks – Hilary Melton-Butcher

    Tess…

    I can completely relate to what you’ve posted here. Our body is the temple of life. If you treat it well, it will be good right back to you.

    I am fortunate that I have ingrained a daily work out routine for me. I allow nothing to deter me from doing it and the rewards are abundant!:~)

    Hi Tess

    This is such an important message for everyone. We sometime gets so busy that all we are listening to is our brain, not our body. This is a great reminder to get in tune with our body and listen.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hillary,
    I believe you need to honor where you are at with your mother. Don’t be too hard on yourself for while attending to your mother! When the time is right you will begin again. Your body remembers and will let you know when it is time.

    Carla,
    Thank you for the compliment and stopping by. I’m happy you find this inspiring.

    Hennie,
    Your photo of yourself shows how healthy you are and I need to also say wise for having a routine and staying with it.

    Gio,
    You are so right we are to into our heads and not the voice of our body. In our heads we seem to chase wealth. Health is the larger part of one’s wealth.

    And Tess, if you are available to do so and think of it, could you please e-mail me when Monday rolls around so I’ll be shocked into knowing what day of the week it is so I can come over here and get in on the fun.

    I’ve a hard enough time recalling the days of the week when school’s in session, let alone now that it free-wheeling summer.

    Thank you!

    I have read everything Dr. Northrup has written and was at a book signing for the first printing of Our Bodies, OurSelves.

    I am back up to 5miles walking 6 days a week, and hope in the next few months to get back to weight lifting 2 times a week. In the afternoons on very wet days, I do my Wii sports or Wii fit and that is so helpful. Tearing this ligament that hold my gallbladder, stomach, and spleen in place has been a very traumatic experience for me.

    I have a horrendous genetic disorder which has manifest itself in cancer a number of times. I keep working at it and am writing on 12th about a local inspiring woman in my city who is healing herself.

    Dr. Northrup makes me feel not alone…and she has answered several question via email for one of my friends.
    Nice post Thank you for sharing so many resources

    I just finished watching Dr.Northrup’ program this morning and it has helped me want to do more for my body, and mind, for I have neglected myself for to long. Thanks for KET Television.
