Welcome to Whole Woman®!
Practicing doctors primarily know what they are taught and what they learn from the drug sales representatives. They don't have time to stay current with the thousands of research studies produced by thousands of laboratories world-wide and published in the many peer-reviewed journals.
I don't practice medicine and all I do is study and report to you what I find in the medical research, both new and legacy.
Knowledge Not Accessible to Most Women
I use what I learn from the laboratory research studies to help women avoid the drugs and surgeries my studies have shown to be defective, misguided, and even contraindicated despite often being common practice in the doctors' offices.
For example, it took me many years of research to crack the code on prolapse. The information I bring to women has kept thousands out of the operating room. I spent fifteen months studying chronic hip pain and have helped thousands avoid hip surgery. Studying medical research is what I do and what it provides me (and you) with is a far more accurate and complete picture of what actually works and doesn't work in medicine.
Medicine is a Business
The reason is simple. You and your doctor have an economic conflict of interest. He/she wants to maximize revenue and minimize cost. The "Standards of Care" doctors are required to follow are designed to accomplish both - making sure they spend maximum time in the operating room and keeping the drug companies happy.
I, on the other hand, have only one objective - to provide you with the most accurate and current medical knowledge so you can make the best decisions for your own health and self-care.
How I Can Help
So if you or a woman you care for is struggling with -
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Vaginal and vulva health
- Urinary incontinence, UTIs or other bladder challenges
- Chronic hip pain

…or other common women’s health challenges, you've come to the right place.

At Whole Woman, we understand that the body is a self-organizing, self-healing organism when aligned with the laws of nature. We also demonstrate that gynecology, urology, oncology, and orthopedics are rife with anatomical misunderstanding, misguided practices, and harmful treatments.
Self-Care versus Medical Care
Whole Woman follows the principles of self-care, which are inextricably connected with caring for others and caring for the planet.
- Your own body is the ultimate source of wisdom of what it needs and wants
- Our bodies are constantly trying to communicate with us
- Our bodies don't have words so we don't recognize what our bodies are trying to tell us
- Symptoms are the language of the body
- The sole function of symptoms is to point to root causes
- Successfully address the root cause and the symptom disappears on its own
- Natural foods and herbs harmonize with the complexity of our hormones, nervous system, and genetics
- Nature provides us with the medicines we need for optimal health
- How I breathe, sit, stand and move in the world make the difference between vitality and musculoskeletal dysfunction
- Love, patience, and forgiveness are intrinsic to the human evolutionary path
- Living well and dying well co-exist along the self-care continuum.
My Whole Woman work has kept thousands of women out of the operating room and leading full physically and sexually active lives in over sixty countries.
We have trained and certified Whole Woman Practitioners throughout the US, and in Canada, Ireland, the UK, Belgium, Germany, Ghana, and Australia.

What just a few of our many customers from around the world have to say about
I have been so amazed at how the Whole Woman posture has helped eliminate my symptoms. After taking this Clinic, I realize that I can have a very positive effect on my health and it is under my control. If I feel a prolapse symptom, I immediately know what to do.
Austin TX USA
I feel the whole experience has been beneficial and the experience more than met my expectations.
It was very interesting and informative, I learnt a lot from Christine.
Not only does the posture reduce the prolapse, it also feels absolutely terrific. I can breathe more deeply and freely, my chronic hip pain is vanishing, I have a wider field of vision because I'm not hunched over, and I just feel so open and graceful and feminine.
A few years back, I found Christine after a roundabout search to avoid a hysterectomy and sling for a severe uterine, bladder, and rectum prolapse brought on by a childbirth that was going well naturally but was completely botched by an OB/GYN’s interventions. I had ended up delivering a very injured infant after three pulls of vacuum extraction.
It took a leap of faith to sign up for her Whole Woman Works! Intensive program, but it didn’t take long to realize that I had found a kindred soul in Christine. She reviewed my medical history, paid keen attention to my symptoms, patiently taught me the exercises and the whole woman posture, and liberated me from the pessary. I had traveled to see her in New Mexico with my pessary, and I have never worn it again in the four years since.
Among the many attributes that I admire about Christine (and her husband Lanny) is the fact that they talk the talk and walk the walk. Their integrity and passion for transforming women’s health care is a rare gift for women like me who ignorantly followed conventional medicine not knowing any better. Christine’s research is deep and authentic. Her breadth of knowledge and wisdom are truly rare to find. She refuses to succumb to the dominant narrative on pharmaceuticals and surgeries that most of us believe are the only means to alleviate our suffering.
I would urge any woman struggling with pelvic organ prolapse, hip and/or knee pain, perimenopause or menopause to reach out to Christine. Any woman of child-bearing age would benefit immensely learning from Christine. I only wish I had found Christine well before I got pregnant. It would have spared me enormous, unnecessary suffering.
My best wishes are always with Christine and Lanny for all the good they do!SuhaniCalifornia USA
