We incorporate nutritional strategies that consist of individualized meal plans based on your personal choices and taste, with designer nutrition. We can provide our patients with an array of specialized testing that can address and measure reproductive hormones, adrenal hormones, micronutrient levels and function, toxicity, food allergies and gut function, neurotransmitter levels, among other tests.

In today’s fast paced life, 24 hour work schedule, and constant demands for top performance in a society that is burdened by cut throat competition, constant attention should be driven towards optimal performance and health. But it is not just health in numbers that is important. Mental, psychological, spiritual as well as biological health is paramount.
I am talking about truly feeling at the “top of your game”. Having balance in your life, to maintain the vital core needs of humans: optimal health and physical performance, happiness and vital connections with family and friends as your support system. They all represent health, wellbeing, quality of life and promote a reason for living.
At Advanced Health and Wellbeing, PC we are aware of the obesity, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes and diabetes epidemic and we take it very seriously.
The reality is that 2 out of 3 Americans are overweight or obese, more than 70 million (nearly 1 in 4) Americans have varying degrees of insulin resistance and there is an estimated 54 million (more than 1 in 6) Americans with pre-diabetes. Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. adults has high cholesterol, and 1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure. This is a recipe for disaster: increased risk for heart disease, angina, heart attack and stroke, as well as increased risk of diminished quality of life.
Interestingly, heart disease is more prevalent in women than in men after menopause and is one of the leading causes of death.
Patients that visit Advanced Health and Wellbeing, PC are discerning health consumers, and are proactive, interested in participating in their health. They come prepared and knowledgeable regarding their thyroid condition. But, thyroid disease can be very elusive. It is well known that a patient may have had thyroid disease for about 5 years prior to the day of their diagnosis.
Integrative thyroid health incorporates cutting edge medical research and the latest technology with the patient’s detailed medical history and clinical exam. Making a diagnosis of thyroid disease requires full understanding of the patient’s complaints, nutritional state, as well as their gut function and absorption of micronutrients (such as iodine). When addressing thyroid health in an integrative way, it is important to carefully look at other endocrine organs such as the adrenals, the ovaries and the gut. Disturbances in these complementary glands may complicate or exacerbate the thyroid situation.
The adrenal glands are very special, their function is vital for life. When they stop working it is necessary to replace the hormones otherwise severe illness and death can occur. The adrenal glands are also called the suprarenal glands. This is an anatomic name because they are located just on top of the kidneys on each side of the body. So, like we have two kidneys we have two adrenal glands. They are small and triangular in shape. The adrenal gland itself is made out of two parts, like a shell and a core: the outer region or shell is called the adrenal cortex, and the inner region or core, is called the adrenal medulla. Each part has distinct functions.

“Dr. Maya is truly an amazing doctor. Her experience, intelligence, ability and the passion she has for helping her patients is almost unheard of in today’s world. In my case she diagnosed health issues missed by other doctors for 10 years, treated them and has since helped keep me on a healthy path. I would travel to the end of the earth to see her….we are so lucky to have her here in NH!”Ben Benson
“My personal experience with Dr. Ochoa-Maya is that she is intelligent, caring and compassionate. When my wife was seriously ill, Dr. Ochoa-Maya went the extra mile going far beyond what you would expect from your doctor. I will be eternally grateful to her for her professionalism, her kindness and comfort during a very difficult time in our lives.”Raymond J. Wieczorek
