In Finding Me in Menopause, Dr Nitu Bajekal, OBGYN, and one of the UK's first Board-Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physicians, shares how lifestyle interventions, and the food we eat, can dramatically transform menopausal health. following the principle of six lifestyle pillars, she gives simple yet scientific nutrition and lifestyle tips to transform the experience of menopause, with or without hormone therapy.

You will learn how to identify and manage stress, understand how sleep affects our hormones, the role of exercise in our lives, and the importance of maintaining positive social connections for our mental health.

There is dietary support, which draws on the science and power of plant-based nutrition to offer Menopause Menus - dozens of easy, delicious, and nourishing plant-based recipes for breakfast, main meals, and snacks from Nitu's kitchen with a shopping plan, and health insights for each dish.

Each lifestyle pillar chapter concludes with a Menopause Mantra: a summary, a list of the top self-help tips to implement and a positive affirmation that is tied to that chapter.
