Once upon a time, words like immune-compromised, ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson disease, obesity, diabetes, hormone imbalance, Margarita Head Pictureadrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome toxicity, gut function, food allergies and nutrient deficiency were not a part of our vocabulary. Today these words are embedded in our vernacular. Now a new term is entering the language: ‘chronic endocrine disorders’.

Women are suffering more and more from chronic endocrine disorders which include: hair loss, depression, anxiety, fatigue, hypo/hyperthyroidism, infertility, PCOS, weight gain, PMS, PMDD, bipolar disorder, and postpartum depression. The normal rise and fall of our hormones is becoming extreme in the ‘highs’ (obsessive compulsive/mania) and the ‘lows’ depression and anxiety.

Women are asking themselves over and over ‘What is wrong with me’? And yet do not get any answers other than a prescription for a drug that masks the system. We have not been educated about the sacred functionality of the endocrine system. And not understanding our bodies keeps us victimized to a great extent on how successful we are in life.

Enter my favorite endocrinologist, Dr. Margarita Ochoa-Maya – who will shed light on the nature and function of the endocrine system and those hormones that are driving us ‘mad.’

Margarita Ochoa-Maya, MD, CDE CCD believes it is time to become proactive and personal about our health. She is a proponent of nutrition and micronutrients as key determining factors for the prevention of chronic illness. Prevention, patient knowledge and treating the whole person, not just the disease, are the keys to achieving wellness for everyone, especially those with chronic endocrine disorders.

Dr. Ochoa-Maya will weave together the latest knowledge and cutting edge research in the traditional medical world, with other integrative therapies.

Within the broad area of internal medicine, preventive medicine, women’s health, adolescent health, and endocrinology, Dr. Ochoa-Maya has developed extensive interest in metabolism, the hormonal mechanisms of organ injury, the pathophysiology of hormones, obesity, hypertension and diabetes. She is a specialist in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a seriously under-diagnosed condition that affects millions of women world-wide. She is very interested in the interrelationships between the environment, a healthy diet, routine exercise, and illness, including physical, psychological, and emotional health.

Dr. Ochoa-Maya demonstrates her ongoing commitment to patient education by leading open discussions focusing on her areas of expertise and expands this commitment by actively participating in community activities that promote health literacy. Her main efforts are to understand and to help others acknowledge the influence hormones have on total health, happiness and physical appearance.

Originally from Medellin Columbia, Dr. Ochoa-Maya graduated from Instituto de Ciencia de la Salud CES and completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Boston City Hospital/Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts. She then completed a fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Margarita R. Ochoa-Maya, MD, CDE established Advanced Health and Wellbeing in 2010. With an 11-year history of practicing endocrinology, Dr. Ochoa-Maya, is well-known in southern New Hampshire as well as along the east coast through Florida.
