Let's Talk!

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen
 HRT For Men Asheville, NC

What Causes Menopause?

The most common reason for menopause is the natural decline in a female's reproductive hormones. However, menopause can also result from the following situations:

Oophorectomy: This surgery, which removes a woman's ovaries, causes immediate menopause. Symptoms and signs of menopause in this situation can be severe, as the hormonal changes happen abruptly.

Chemotherapy: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce menopause quickly, causing symptoms to appear shortly after or even during treatment.

Ovarian Insufficiency: Also called premature ovarian failure, this condition is essentially premature menopause. It happens when a woman's ovaries quit functioning before the age of 40 and can stem from genetic factors and disease. Only 1% of women suffer from premature menopause, but HRT can help protect the heart, brain, and bones.

Depression

If you're a woman going through menopause and find that you have become increasingly depressed, you're not alone. It's estimated that 15% of women experience depression to some degree while going through menopause. What many women don't know is that depression can start during perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause.

Depression can be hard to diagnose, especially during perimenopause and menopause. However, if you notice the following signs, it might be time to speak with a physician:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

Remember, if you're experiencing depression, you're not weak or broken - you're going through a very regular emotional experience. The good news is that with proper treatment from your doctor, depression isn't a death sentence. And with HRT and anti-aging treatment for women, depression could be the catalyst you need to enjoy a new lease on life.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes - they're one of the most well-known symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes are intense, sudden feelings of heat across a woman's upper body. Some last second, while others last minutes, making them incredibly inconvenient and uncomfortable for most women.

Symptoms of hot flashes include:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Typically, hot flashes are caused by a lack of estrogen. Low estrogen levels negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature and appetite. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to incorrectly assume the body is too hot, dilating blood vessels to increase blood flow. Luckily, most women don't have to settle for the uncomfortable feelings that hot flashes cause. HRT treatments for women often stabilize hormones, lessening the effects of hot flashes and menopause in general.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are common occurrences for most people - quick shifts from happy to angry and back again, triggered by a specific event. And while many people experience mood swings, they are particularly common for women going through menopause. That's because, during menopause, the female's hormones are often imbalanced. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go hand-in-hand, resulting in frequent mood changes and even symptoms like insomnia.

The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood, causing mood swings.

Luckily, HRT and anti-aging treatments in Asheville, NC for women work wonders for mood swings by regulating hormone levels like estrogen. With normal hormone levels, women around the world are now learning that they don't have to settle for mood swings during menopause.

Weight Gain

Staying fit and healthy is hard for anyone living in modern America. However, for women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause or menopause, weight gain is even more serious. Luckily, HRT treatments for women coupled with a physician-led diet can help keep weight in check. But which hormones need to be regulated?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.

Low Libido

Lowered sexual desire - three words most men and women hate to hear. Unfortunately, for many women in perimenopausal and menopausal states, it's just a reality of life. Thankfully, today, HRT and anti-aging treatments Asheville, NC can help women maintain a normal, healthy sex drive. But what causes low libido in women, especially as they get older?

The hormones responsible for low libido in women are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.

Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, causing low sex drive in women. Lower progesterone production can also cause chronic fatigue, weight gain, and other symptoms. On the other hand, lower estrogen levels during menopause lead to vaginal dryness and even vaginal atrophy or loss of muscle tension.

Lastly, testosterone plays a role in lowered libido. And while testosterone is often grouped as a male hormone, it contributes to important health and regulatory functionality in women. A woman's testosterone serves to heighten sexual responses and enhances orgasms. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, it often results in a lowered sex drive.

 Hormone Replacement Asheville, NC

Vaginal Dryness

Often uncomfortable and even painful, vaginal dryness is a serious problem for sexually active women. However, like hair loss in males, vaginal dryness is very common - almost 50% of women suffer from it during menopause.

Getting older is just a part of life, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for the side effects. HRT and anti-aging treatments for women correct vaginal dryness by re-balancing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. When supplemented with diet and healthy living, your vagina's secretions are normalized, causing discomfort to recede.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Asheville, NC

Fibroids

Uterine fibroids - they're perhaps the least-known symptom of menopause and hormone imbalances in women. That's because these growths on the uterus are often symptom-free. Unfortunately, these growths can be cancerous, presenting a danger for women as they age.

Many women will have fibroids at some point. Because they're symptomless, they're usually found during routine doctor exams. Some women only get one or two, while others may have large clusters of fibroids. Because fibroids are usually caused by hormone imbalances, hysterectomies have been used as a solution, forcing women into early menopause.

Advances in HRT and anti-aging medicine for women give females a safer, non-surgical option without having to experience menopause early. At Global Life Rejuvenation, our expert physicians will implement a customized HRT program to stabilize your hormones and reduce the risk of cancerous fibroid growth.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS, and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Xenoestrogen is a hormone that is very similar to estrogen. Too much xenoestrogen is thought to stimulate endometrial tissue growth. HRT for women helps balance these hormones and, when used with a custom nutrition program, can provide relief for women across the U.S.

 Sermorelin Asheville, NC

What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.

 HRT Asheville, NC

Benefits of Sermorelin

Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Hormone Replacement Asheville, NC

What is Ipamorelin?

Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.

Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Asheville, NC

Benefits of Ipamorelin

One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies. Ipamorelin can boost a patient's overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life.

When there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

ASHEVILLE — With a weather system bringing freezing rain and ice on its way to the area, much of Western North Carolina is under a winter storm warning or advisory from the National Weather Service Jan. 6.

“Significant icing” is expected for Transylvania and Henderson counties, as well as the mountains in Rutherford and Polk counties, leading to a winter storm warning in effect from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 6, according to NWS.

Total ice accumulations could hit one-tenth to two-tenths of an inch in these areas. These ice accumulations will make travel dangerous or impossible late-night Jan. 5 and into the following day. Power outages and tree damage are likely, the NWS said.

“Precipitation should begin late this evening as a period of sleet, possibly mixed with snow, before changing to freezing rain in the early morning hours Saturday,” the warning said. “The best potential for significant ice accumulation will be generally south of U.S. Highway 64 to the Blue Ridge Escarpment.”

Previous weather alert for Jan. 5-6:Almost 1 inch of snow, freezing rain expected in Asheville Jan. 5-6, weather service says

Buncombe County, including Asheville, and 10 other counties in WNC are under a slightly-less severe winter weather advisory from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 6. Mixed precipitation is expected, with total snow accumulations of up to 1 inch, mostly over the mountains, and with ice accumulations hitting up to two tenths of an inch, according to NWS.

Slippery road conditions and limited visibility is expected. Other counties effected include Avery, Iredell, Davie, Yancey, Mitchell, Catawba, Rowan, Sothern Jackson, Cleveland and Lincoln.

“Precipitation will spread northeast across the region after midnight through the pre-dawn hours,” the advisory said. “Across the mountains, it will begin as a period of sleet and possibly light snow, before changing to freezing rain and rain.”

Freezing rain expected in Asheville

Around midnight tonight, a mix of sleet and rain is supposed to descend on Asheville for an hour or two, which will transition to freezing rain through the pre-dawn hours, according to meteorologist Mike Rehnberg with the National Weather Service.

Asheville could see about .15 inches of ice accumulation with variations locally, Rehnberg said.

"The low for tomorrow morning right around daybreak is going to be about 30 degrees, so I can tell you that with temperatures that are only a little bit below freezing, most of that ice is expected to be confined to elevated surfaces," Rehnberg told the Citizen Times Jan. 5, listing places like powerlines and tree branches as opposed to roadways.

Check if you're winter weather ready:Are you ready for winter weather in Western North Carolina? Here's our checklist

"Since there is going to be wet rain on the ground already before things start freezing and because there's going to be a fairly short period where temperatures are going to be consistently below freezing, it's going to be tough for most roads to get cold enough for ice."

Rehnberg did say that any patchy ice that does occur will likely be in places where air can get underneath driving surfaces, such as bridges and overpasses.

Asheville is forecasted to hit above freezing temperatures between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. Jan. 6, with temperatures likely to hit 33 degrees at 8 a.m., according to Rehnberg.

Locations at higher elevations will likely get more ice accumulation, such as Mount Mitchell, projected to get a quarter of an inch, Rehnberg said.

"This is largely going to be an ice event," Rehnberg said. "Some of the far northern mountains, so areas in Avery County, are the only areas that we are currently forecasting measurable snow. Those areas are going to get up to maybe half an inch."

The NWS discourages traveling during this period, particularly in areas under the winter storm warning. But if anyone must hit the roads, they suggest:

Portions of the Blue Ridge Parkway are already closed for snow and ice, including Milepost 344.2 at N.C. 80 through Milepost 367.6 at Stoney Fork Access Road and Milepost 393.6 at Brevard Road/N.C. 191 at the N.C. Arboretum entrance to 458.2 at Heintooga Spur Road near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Though the so-called Asheville commuter zone between Brevard Road at milepost 39 and the Folk Art Center milepost 382 remains open, the parkway frequently closes this time of year even when conditions at lower elevations are mild and pleasant since much of the scenic route is situated at higher elevations.

A Code Purple alert has also been announced for Sunday, Jan. 7 in Asheville and Buncombe County to provide emergency overflow shelter to people experiencing homelessness during extremely cold weather. ABCCM will provide shuttle service with pickups at its Crisis Ministry located at 24 Cumberland Avenue at 4 p.m. Bust transit through ART is also free to Code Purple sites.

Code Purple shelter sites include:

NTSB releases new details on fiery December plane crash on I-26 near Asheville

The FAA said a Diamond DA-40 crashed onto the interstate near the Asheville airport in North Carolina.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary investigation report after a small plane crashed on Interstate 26 near Asheville in December, injuring a flight instructor and student pilot.

The plane took off from Knoxville and was heading back to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. According to the NTSB report, the flight instructor and pilot were flying a cross-country night flight when they felt the plane "shudder" and lose engine power. The NTSB said the flight instructor took control and tried to restart the engine, which did restart briefly but lost power again a few moments later.

The aircraft began to fill up with smoke before the engine lost power a final time, and the flight instructor then made a "forced landing" on the interstate. The NTSB said the plane hit an energized power line right before hitting the ground and catching fire.

The flight instructor suffered minor injuries and the student pilot was seriously injured, according to the report.

The NTSB said the wreckage was recovered and examined, where they discovered a connecting rod had separated from the engine. The plane, a Diamond Aircraft DA-40 NG, was relatively new and had flown a total of 95 flight hours. The NTSB said the plane received its airworthiness certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration on Sept. 25, 2023, and had recently received its 100-hour maintenance inspection a few days before the crash on Dec. 9.

According to Flightaware.com, the plane took off from Knoxville Downtown Island Home the night of Dec. 14 around 7:30 p.m. before it lost power and began gliding northwest of Asheville around 8:15 p.m.

The plane appeared to have briefly stopped in Knoxville that day after flying from Myrtle Beach. The plane was flying primarily in Myrtle Beach over the past month, according to its previous tracked flights.

A spokesperson for LIFT Academy, the flight school that was operating the aircraft, sent a statement to WLOS praising the flight instructor and student for their composure.

"On Thursday evening, one of our LIFT training flights made an emergency landing on a highway near Asheville, North Carolina. Our certificated flight instructor used their training and experience to land the aircraft without serious injury to themselves or any injury to persons on the ground. We are proud of the skill and composure our pilot and flight student demonstrated throughout the event and grateful to the first responders who attended to the scene to aid our pilots and secure the site," the academy said.

Audio between the pilot and Asheville Regional Airport showed the pilot remained calm even as smoke began filling his aircraft after losing electric power and hearing loud bangs. The audio was pulled from tower recordings on LiveATC.Net.

"Mayday, mayday, we've got oil pressure failure and looks like two ECU failures. We're coming in," the pilot said. "We're losing all electric power."

The pilot told the tower the plane was on its best gliding path without power roughly 4 to 5 miles away from the airport.

"Honestly, with our best glide, we're probably not going to make it," the pilot said.

A few moments later the pilot called the tower to let them know they were able to briefly restart the engine, but said they heard a "big bang." The pilot said he was trying to regain some altitude, but said smoke was starting to fill the plane before losing engine power again.

"We're in glide... we're probably going to have to put it down on the freeway it looks like," the pilot said.

The tower lost contact with the plane a few moments later after they called to let them know they were about to attempt to land the plane on I-26. Emergency ground crews arriving at the crash site called minutes later to report that the plane was on fire.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said the two people inside the plane were able to escape before the plane caught fire, according to WLOS in Asheville. Troopers said the plane hit power lines that cross I-26 and one of its wings hit a semi-truck.

The two onboard the plane were taken to Mission Hospital with injuries that weren't life-threatening, according to WLOS.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane went down onto I-26 at around 8:15 p.m. It said the plane was a single-engine Diamond DA-40. The plane was registered to Diamond Aircraft Sales USA, Inc. and was being operated by Lift Training Academy, according to the FAA.

The FAA posted a preliminary report on the crash, calling it an accident and saying the plane was destroyed.

I-26 was shut down for hours as emergency crews responded. NCDOT said the road reopened the next day around 9:30 a.m., and one westbound lane remained closed for pavement repairs.

Barbie pink paints the street-side window frame of Laila, the new Indian restaurant that has filled the prime downtown space unexpectedly vacated by Holeman & Finch in April. The owners — who also run the popular Andaaz in Biltmore Village — have razzle-dazzled the former new South country club cushiness interiors with vibrant colors, eye-catching art, and a menu that pops with dishes showcasing the coastal regions of the vast country of India.

A century-old former cereal factory in the RAD — Asheville’s funky River Arts District — has been reclaimed and reimagined into the Radical boutique hotel with food and beverage destinations conceived by visionary chef/restaurateur Jacob Sessoms (Table and All Day Darling). Golden Hour’s wood-fired menu sources heavily from local farms for produce and proteins.

Baker Heidi Bass’s focaccia built a fervent following in Asheville, taking her from front porch pop-ups to a storefront bakery and wine shop (with partner Brett Watson) in the River Arts District in 2022. Mother’s charming new eat-and-drink in cafe expands their operations to plates, toasts, sandwiches— the classic jambon beurre baguette is a mainstay — sweets, wine by the glass, and breads by the loaf.

West Asheville mainstay Tastee Diner finds new owners with former Jargon chef Steve Goff and partner Sam Goff. They still serve comfort food, but now it’s a bit more interesting, like Slim Jim dip, roasted bone marrow with okonomiyaki, or a giant smoked bologna stack with whipped pimento cheese. Tastee serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

A West Asheville favorite since it opened in 2001, in recent years the purple-painted neighborhood landmark has gone through multiple hands and reinventions. Since taking over the business in 2023, Stephanie Hand and Donnie Hutchins have staged a successful comeback, fueled by the return of the giant cinnamon roll and a seemingly infinite number of doughnut flavors — dirty chai, coconut, s’mores, and strawberry among them. The cafe menu offers breakfast and lunch.

Cassia is the national tree and flower of Thailand, and it’s the name of chef/partners Madeline Redo and Trevor Musick’s Thai pop-up operating at Cellarest Beer Project.

Local sweet potato firecrackers (the vegan version of the firecracker shrimp spring roll), taro fritters, smoked trout fried rice, and curry of the week are popular menu items.

The team behind popular Indian restaurant Chai Pani has opened street food cafe Botiwalla in West Asheville. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the new spot offers many of the same flavors of Chai Pani, but in a family-friendly, fast-casual setting. Look for okra fries, lamb sliders, Desi salads, and grilled hot buttered naan wrapped around chicken tikka, malai chicken tikka, boti lamb kofta balls, or paneer tikka.
