Reading the Signs of Our Hormones
How to become an advocate for our own health
Dr. Suzanne Fenske practices gynecology with the well-known idiom “you can’t see the forest for the trees” in mind. “If you view a woman by her body parts rather than looking at her as a whole, you will miss the picture,” says Dr. Fenske, who is double board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and board-certified in integrative medicine. “I look at nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management skills, social parameters, sex, and, most importantly, a woman’s needs, goals, and wants.”
