Ep 344 - Busting Hormonal Health, Soy & Plant Based Myths w/ Nitu & Rohini Bajekal

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by Nitu and Rohini Bajekal to bust some of the perpetual myths in hormonal health and plant based diets, including the consensus on soy and whether it’s actually healthy for you.

Nitu Bajekal is a Consultant Gynaecologist and a Women’s Health Specialist with over 35 years of clinical experience, who provides medical and holistic care for women with a variety of health concerns such as PCOS, menopause, heavy periods and cancers.
Rohini is a nutritionist and board-certified lifestyle medicine professional providing evidence-based nutrition and advice around living a healthy lifestyle. Having worked in branding and marketing for food startups, she discovered her passion for making plant-based foods more accessible to people.
They together co-authored the book Living PCOS Free, one which I’d highly recommend checking out!
