The Happy Pear Podcast

Is modern medicine and/or culture the cause of period pains, PCOS, and Endometriosis amongst other issues? Is there an answer to reducing menopause symptoms beyond using HRT that is incredibly effective?

This week we speak to Dr Nitu Bajekal, MD, a Senior Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in the UK with over 35 years of clinical experience in women’s health. Her special interests include Lifestyle Medicine, PCOS, Endometriosis, period problems, menopause, pre-cancer, complex vulval problems and medical education.

Episode 16 – Dr Nitu Bajekal

One of the first board-certified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians in the UK. Dr Bajekal has written the women’s health module for the first UK University based plant-based nutrition course. An avid vegan herself, Dr Bajekal is passionate about spreading health awareness, and providing reliable medical and lifestyle information for the general public, doctors, workplaces, and schools. 

She is the co-author of Living PCOS Free along with her daughter and nutritionist, Rohini Bajekal, which is due for release on 28th April 2022 and available worldwide.  

Dr Bajekal is a vehicle of knowledge, you will learn so much in this episode, from the history of period pains, and how to avoid and reduce menopause symptoms, to how to approach your health, where and when medicine is necessary and the importance of soya.

We felt like two school kids taking notes and listening to every word! We recommend you have your notepad and pen ready, if not for yourself, for your daughter, your sister, your mother, your colleague or your friends.

Lots of Love,
