In today’s episode, we are considering the choice of circumcision.

I had the great honor of talking to Dr. Christiane Northrup, who is a visionary pioneer in women’s health, 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, and a three-time New York Times bestselling author. In 2016, she was named one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100, a group of leaders who are using their voices and talent to awaken humanity.

Internationally known for her empowering approach, 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. Dr. Northrup acknowledges our individual and collective capacity for growth, freedom, joy, and balance. I hope you will find our conversation about the choice of circumcision enlightening and informative.
