Unfortunately society has made this stage of our lives something to be feared and dreaded... This sentence resonated with me. As a gynaecological oncologist, I often have to induce an early menopause by surgically removing ovaries for gynaecological cancers. In some women, the fear of menopause is greater than the fear of cancer. Social media abounds with myths about the menopause and in particular, there is a suggestion that all the unpleasant symptoms are inevitable. This book is timely and informative. It empowers women to take charge of their menopause by providing evidence-based options. It is suitable for the general public, as well as for doctors who do not specialise in the menopause [...] Dr Nitu simplifies a complex subject; I will certainly encourage patients, colleagues, friends and relatives to read it.
A must-read for anyone embarking on the journey of perimenopause and menopause. Dr NItu's heartfelt account and expert guidance provide the essential guide to navigating this phase of life with confidence and grace.
Finding me in Menopause is a great book! This book explains so much about the menopause and perimenopause and breaks things down in an easy to digest format. Tells you what you need to know! Well-researched, but not too scientific. Great advice, but not out of reach, since it is both practical and affordable. This is not a preachy book, more like receiving great advice from a best friend (but with the knowledge and expertise to back it up). I highly recommend it to anyone looking for more than just a book - it's a journey towards positive change.
A brilliant insight to perimenopause and menopause from a doctor who has gone the extra mile to help women. Dr Nitu Bajekal's much needed book shares her own experiences, along with all her knowledge and research from decades of working in women's health.
Indispensable, engaging and evidence-based.
Scientifically factual yet jargon free, this book has allowed me to take control of my menopause journey and has taught me so much about my own body and how to look after myself. The Menopause Mantras at the end of each chapter break everything down into positive achievable goals allowing you to take what you want from this book and incorporate it into your life and whatever level you feel comfortable with. Reading this is like sharing a coffee and a chat with a good friend who is there to help you every step of the way.
A powerful manifesto of the power of holistic and lifestyle medicine in managing menopause. Dr Bakejal writes with empathy and kindness, but carefully balances this with deep knowledge and expertise. Her tone is reassuring, and by sharing her own story and personal journey with menopause, the book becomes really relatable. I enjoyed this book - especially the case studies at the end - and as a doctor and innovator within women's health, I will be recommending it to our customers and community.
I am so grateful that Dr. Bajekal has written this incredible lifestyle-medicine based resource on perimenopause and menopause!! Not only has it helped answer many questions about my own personal (and frustrating!) journey into perimenopause, it has also helped prepare and inform me on what is to come and what steps I can take to better take care of myself during this transition. I am eager to share this empowering knowledge with my coaching clients. Thank you Dr. Nitu Bajekal for this invaluable resource!
A truly inspiring, educational and practical read... Dr Nitu breaks things down to simple, understandable terms and offers practical and simple everyday advice to help manage menopause.
Dr Bajekal emphasises the importance of underpinning any recommended medical interventions such as HRT with appropriate advice about diet, lifestyle, exercise etc. These key "basics" form the template to optimise menopause quality of life and long-term wellbeing for both the individual and society.
Finding Me in Menopause is the book that I wish I'd had ten years ago [when] I was plunged into surgical menopause and - despite being a medical doctor myself - felt lost and unsure how best to help myself... With warmth and compassion, and remaining inclusive throughout, Dr Bajekal brings together the latest in evidence-based research in lifestyle medicine and applies this to the menopausal transition in a practical, and non-judgemental, way. There is something for everyone here, and I will be recommending this book to friends, colleagues and patients far and wide.
