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.
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:
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 - 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:
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 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 Boca Raton, FL 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.
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?
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 Boca Raton, FL 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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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:

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — In what may be an extraordinary violation of the Florida Homeowner’s Association Act, BocaNewsNow.com has learned that two members of the Board of Directors for an HOA in a large community in South Palm Beach County served termination papers on the management team of its in-house restaurant.
If true, this would be the fourth time in just a handful of years that the restaurant in the community has been axed. It would also represent a potential violation of Florida Statute 720.303, which requires a Board of Directors to make major decisions — like the operator of a restaurant — during open meetings. Sources say no public discussion occurred about terminating the current operator. Sources say the directors who allegedly terminated the current operator are discussing the reinstatement of a previous operator that is currently suing the community for slander and libel.
BocaNewsNow.com reached out to the two members of the community’s board of directors for comment but received no response. The community’s management company did not immediately respond to a request from a homeowner to provide a copy of the termination letter. An HOA does have 10 days to comply with a homeowner document request under Florida Statute.
Those familiar with the situation believe the termination will all but guarantee the community’s restaurant will go dark, as employees will be disinterested in remaining in a business that is expected to close within months. The sources said it was unclear what would happen to an estimated hundreds of thousands of dollars prepaid by homeowners as part of a “mandatory” spend.

Special to the Post
BOCA RATON — With the start of the season less than a month away, Florida Atlantic conducted its first scrimmage of the preseason Saturday morning as part of the school’s “Fan Fest.”
Players from the football team, women’s soccer and cross-country were on hand to sign autographs at FAU Stadium. Fans also got to see a taste of what’s to come for the Owls ahead of the 2023 season under new head coach Tom Herman.
The defense won 24-20 in the scrimmage as the points were determined by the coaching staff’s metrics. Points were earned in different ways, such as explosive plays, first downs and interceptions.
One of the key storylines heading into the season was the quarterback room and who will separate themselves as the starter.
It’s expected to come down to graduate transfer Casey Thompson and Daniel Richardson. However, it won’t be shocking to see Thompson under center to start Week 1 (Sept. 2) against Monmouth.
Even though he missed the whole spring, Thompson looked exceptional Saturday as the former Texas and Nebraska QB is gaining chemistry with the skill position players. He excelled in red-zone situations and made some notable plays with receivers LaJohntay Wester and BJ Alexander.
Herman said that it’s been mostly a smooth transition for Thompson as the two have familiarity from their time together with the Longhorns.
“Knowing him for as long as I have, I think one of the attractions of coming to FAU was that any other offense would probably be a pretty steep learning curve,” Herman told The Palm Beach Post. “Is this the same offense from three years ago when we were last together? No. But, conceptually and from a philosophical, 30,000-foot view, it's very similar.”
Having played in the spring, Richardson showed that he has chemistry with the offense and he also made some solid plays. On the other hand, he did make some mistakes, including an interception to end the scrimmage on a high note for the defense.Both alternated between the first team throughout the scrimmage, so the battle remains. Herman said that he expects to know the starter after the second scrimmage next weekend.
While there are still question marks around the defense for FAU, that unit had a solid day during the scrimmage.
To Herman, the defense dominated the first half and he said he was pleased.
“The offense battled back a little bit there in the red zone, we put the defenses back against the wall, but I thought they actually responded pretty well. Holding the offense to a bunch of field goal attempts rather than a touchdown, so that was good to see,” Herman said. “I thought we flew around. I thought we're much deeper … they're better for having been through our summer development and then some of the transfers and freshmen that we brought in are really gonna contribute, especially on that side of the ball.”
One of the many plays made by the defense was the interception by sophomore linebacker Jaylen Wester to end the scrimmage. Herman said that he’s been impressed with Wester, who has “grown up over the summer.”
“He'd be the first to tell you he was a bit of a knucklehead when he first got here. He had a hard time adapting, but this fall camp, he’s been doing things our way, the team's way,” Herman said. “And I don't wanna throw too much sugar at him, but you know, he's had a good nine days and I'm proud of him for the growth and maturity that he has shown over the last few months.”
Wester, brother of receiver LaJohntay, received Conference USA all-freshman honors as he came alive toward the end of last season and is looking to keep up that momentum.
Herman has reiterated on multiple occasions what mindset he wants to see from his team heading into the season.
The phrases “mentally tough” and playing with “fanatical effort” always come up. Herman said both were present during the scrimmage.
“We talked yesterday and today as a staff and to the team that you know if I'm a player on the football team, my effort, intensity, physicality and attention to detail on every single play is a direct reflection of my commitment to the team and the love that I have for my teammates and coaches,” Herman said. “That's the foundation of our program. It's one of our demands, but I felt that today. I did feel a renewed sense of urgency out there.”
Herman acknowledged that they’re not there yet, but they’re progressing.
“Having done this now for seven years as a head coach, something like that, this is about right. We're not behind, but we're not ahead and that's OK. Still got some battles to sort out but we got another week and then we go into mock game week,” Herman said. “Next scrimmage is going to be big. It’ll be a line of demarcation, if you will, from the five practices leading up and then the scrimmage. We're gonna have to make some decisions going into that mock game week.”

Penn-Florida Companies scored a $302.5 million loan for the Residences at Mandarin Oriental development in Boca Raton, marking the latest refinancing for the project, The Real Deal has learned.
New York-based Madison Realty Capital, led by Josh Zegen, is providing the financing for the Via Mizner project at 105 East Camilo Real, according to a source. It replaces the $225 million loan Madison provided in 2019. The refinancing adds to a group of large loans that developers have secured in recent months.
A Newmark team led by Anthony Orso and Henry Stimler arranged the loan. The financing is for the 86-unit Mandarin Oriental-branded condo portion. The condos are about 90 percent presold.
Penn-Florida, led by president Mark Gensheimer, completed the first phase, a 366-unit apartment building, in 2018. The project also calls for a 164-room Mandarin Oriental hotel, the Via Mizner Golf and City Club, and 60,000 square feet of retail space that will make up the Shoppes at Via Mizner. Jack Nicklaus designed the golf club.
The delayed development was originally expected to be completed in 2020.
Construction on Via Mizner began in 2015. In 2017, Penn-Florida closed on $398 million in financing, led by New York-based Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies. That included about $80 million from the U.S. Immigration Fund, an EB-5 regional center operator, according to a press release. In 2019, it scored the $225 million loan from Madison. And in 2021, the developer secured $335 million in partial refinancing from Blackstone Mortgage Trust and Toronto-based Romspen Investment Corp.
The developer bought the Via Mizner site for $19 million in 2014.
Despite high interest rates and pullback from major banks, some developers have been able to lock in large loans. In July, Witkoff and Monroe Capital secured $430 million in construction financing for their Shore Club project in Miami Beach, one of the largest construction loans for a condo development ever recorded in South Florida. J.P. Morgan provided the financing.
Madison Realty also has been active in the region. In May, the firm provided a $340 million loan to Dan Catalfumo’s Catalfumo Companies for the planned Ritz-Carlton Residences, Palm Beach Gardens. The largest condo construction loan in South Florida came from Bank OZK in 2018. The Trump Group, led by brothers Jules and Eddie Trump, who are of no relation to the former president, secured a $558 million loan for the Estates at Acqualina luxury condo development in Sunny Isles Beach.
