Why you should never tell your age again: Dr. Christiane Northrup {aka my mama} on Glimpse TV

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 8.31.39 AM

Today marks a very exciting day. It is not only the day my mom’s new book, Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-Being launches, it’s also my mom’s third time on Glimpse TV!

I just re-watched the episode and I have to say, it’s not only quite entertaining (yes, sometimes I find myself entertaining, it’s true), it’s also packed full of practical tips and scientific data for you to begin living agelessly immediately.

What does “ageless living” mean?

Well, it means not buying into the cultural stereotypes about what being a certain age has to mean. It means not contributing to the ageism all around us. It means changing the conversation around getting older from one of complaining to one of celebration and honoring.

My mom, Dr. Christiane Northrup, lays it all down in her new book, as well as her new PBS special that’s airing starting February 28th. (It’s called “Glorious Women Never Age” and it’s amazing. Keep an eye out for me laughing my tush off in the audience.)

I had an absolute ball interviewing my mom for Glimpse TV and I learned a lot.

We covered SO MUCH valuable content. You must watch from start to finish – it’s action packed until the very last moment!

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why you should never tell anyone how old you are again
  • The science behind our culture of ageism and how to stop buying in
  • The hard core science that backs up the mind-body connection
  • Why we have way more control over our biological age than we think we do
  • How to step out of the age discussion
  • Exactly what to say when someone asks you how old you are
  • Why you’re not behind
  • How to celebrate your birthday without it being about you getting older
  • The thing all healthy people over 100 have in common
  • How to look better and better every single year
  • How to get a brand new body in 7 years
  • How to know whether or not to freeze your eggs
  • What every woman over 35 who wants to have a baby must know
  • Plus way more juicy content and great giggles!

We were together. I forget the rest.

As it turns out, planning a wedding is not for the faint of heart. There are the logistics. And then there’s the emotional stuff. It’s really easy to perseverate on the logistics to avoid feeling the emotional stuff. I’ve noticed myself veer in that direction countless times in the last year and particularly in the…

Somebody wants what you have.

Right now, someone in the world envies you. They admire your business. They covet your wardrobe. They lust after your husband. To someone somewhere you look like you have it all. Your website makes their mouth water. Your pictures on Facebook make them yearn for adventure in their life. Seeing you makes them crave more….

It’s never too late.

Last year at the beginning of November Mike and I decided that we were done traveling the country living out of my car. We were in Arizona and needed to get two cars, his and mine, across the country. Instead of driving in a caravan and missing out on hours of quality time together singing…

Here’s what I know…

As the year tiptoes to a close (it really snuck up on me this year) I’m taking stock. And I’m making stock. (Yes, I have been cooking non-stop since Mike and I settled into our new home for the next five months. My inner Susie Homemaker has come out in full force. I’m just as…

Born Funny: My Mama, Dr. Christiane Northrup, on Glimpse TV

Glimpse TV has been rocking the airwaves since June 2010 and yet, somehow, I’ve never interviewed my mother…until today! She’s not only an amazing mama, she’s also a NY Times best-selling author, has had several very successful PBS shows, and has been a guest on Oprah 10 times! But, Glimpse TV really is the big…

Set yourself free from overwhelm.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just feel downright overwhelmed. Like this morning for example. I’m packing up all my stuff (which admittedly isn’t much) and headed back across the country for the fourth, and hopefully final, time this year. (More on this very soon – big changes afoot here on The Freedom…

Open this to change the world.

Today I’m writing in about something far more serious than my usual musings on self-actualization and freedom. Or am I? I’m part of a campaign of bloggers writing today about The Girl Effect, defined on the organizations site as “The unique potential of 600 million adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world.”…
