This week’s episode, The New Buzz: Chronic Endocrine Disorders on Holy Hormones Honey! Airs January 16th LIVE at 9 am Pacific.  Catch this episode and others on demand every day here!

Once upon a time, words like immune-compromised, ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson disease, obesity, diabetes, hormone imbalance, adrenal 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’. 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.
