Dr. Northrup seeks to incorporate into medicine “not only medical care but what I [know] about nutrition, lifestyle, and the experience of being female in this culture” (xxv). Her healing and medical practices come from an aim to acknowledge and work past the institutional and implicit biases of being a woman that are present in the healthcare and medical fields. Dr. Northrup is highly critical of what she terms the aggressive patriarchy of the medical profession and writes that “the modern medical preference for drugs and surgery as treatments is part of the aggressive patriarchal or addictive approach to disease” (8). Her outlook takes into account the many ways in which medicine and science reflect how Americans have been socialized by the culture at large.
