Hormones and Brain Health (with Dr. Nitu Bajekal)

This episode is a wonderful conversation with our friend, Dr Nitu Bajekal MD, a Senior NHS Consultant Obstetrician, Gynaecologist, and Women’s Health expert based in London, with over 35 years’ clinical experience.

She is also one of the first board-certified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians in the UK.

We discuss hormonal health and its relationship to brain health, specifically how menopause and the changes in a women’s hormonal system during this stage affects brain health, and what are some of the preventive measures that need to be taken to prevent cognitive decline.

Her newly-released book, coauthored with nutritionist Rohini Bajekal, is titled Living PCOS Free: How to Regain Your Hormonal Health with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. The book features a 21-day plan for hormonal health along with delicious plant-based recipes and illuminating case histories.
