M for Menopause Partners
During peri-menopause I was advised to see a lot of specialists. We have teamed up with a range of specialists, as listed below, in order to provide a holistic support network to individuals, families and employers. If you would like to get in touch with M for Menopause or any of our partners than please use the Get in Touch page.
Dr Nitu Bajekal
With over 30 years of clinical experience, her special interests include medical and public education, keyhole surgery and managing complex vulval problems. She is the founder of Women for Women’s Health (WfWH), a voluntary service set up to empower women of all ages to make lifestyle choices that will help improve their own health and also that of their families and friends through education.
Dr Bajekal is passionate about educating women to take charge of their own health. Through information leaflets, lectures, blogs, health events and workshops, she provides reliable up to date medical and lifestyle information for the general public, doctors, workplaces and schools. Young people especially are at the right stage where making small changes can have a tremendous impact on their future health. She herself is a committed and passionate vegan and has personally benefited from following a whole plant based lifestyle.
Dr Parijat Bhatarcharjee
Dr Parijat Bhattacharjee is a Gynaecologist & Obstetrician with more than 20-years experience in the field. His special interests include Fertility and Minimal Access Surgery. He loves teaching and training and engages in lecturing and training on women’s health issues around the globe to medical professionals and more importantly to women who suffers from these problems. He regularly travels to Africa, India and Middle East to train the trainers and organises charity events (at least twice a year) regularly in the UK to raise awareness and finances towards women’s health improvement in the UK and in developing countries.
The importance of lifestyle factors on a day to day basis as opposed to stop-gap solution after an illness is being increasingly appreciated. Dr Bhatarcharjee believes exercise, relaxation and diet form the triad of mental and physical health and insurance against illness. The role of our microbiome towards our health including various gynaecological conditions is being appreciated as the next great event in medicine. He believes in reaching out to those who are affected and in prevention rather than ‘treating’ the condition.
