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 Cedar Knolls, 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 Cedar Knolls, 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:

Garnier is going green, announcing the launch of a new signature tagline – By Garnier, Naturally – to serve as a stamp of the brand's commitment to sustainability and a guarantor of its century of experience in ingredient-focused hair care, color, and skincare formulated with naturally-inspired ingredients.
With this new signature launch, Garnier pledges to continue to introduce measures to reduce plastic usage by committing to 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) waste for shampoo, conditioner, and leave in conditioner bottles in its #1 selling hair care collection – Fructis Sleek & Shine – by the end of 2019. Presently, Garnier Fructis hair care products are produced in a zero waste facility and the current packaging contains 50% post-consumer recycled waste, and the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine formula uses sustainably sourced Argan Oil from Southwest Morocco.
To herald the brand's news, Garnier is launching an education-based mobile Greenhouse Tour in select retail locations across the United States this spring. Inclusive of sampling, coupons, live product and recycling demonstrations, and interactive ingredient experiences, guests to the Greenhouse Tour will experience the world of By Garnier, Naturally. The tour launched on Sunday, March 17 at CVS on 5748 SW 40th Street in South Beach, Miami and will end on Earth Day, Monday, April 22, at 10 Hudson Yards in New York City. In total, the Greenhouse will visit 22 locations at six retailers. Stops include:
"Garnier's mission is to develop beauty products that are both good for you and good for the planet," says Anncy Rowe, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Garnier. "The announcement of our new signature, 100% PCR initiative for Fructis Sleek & Shine and the Greenhouse Tour serves as a commitment to our customers that we continue to aspire to bring the highest quality, most efficacious naturally-inspired formulas in the most sustainable quality packaging to the masses at a price point that's attainable."
With the insight that nearly half of Americans do not recycle their beauty and personal care products, accounting for 1/3 of all landfill waste, Garnier has been working with TerraCycle since 2011 to educate people on how to recycle responsibly. Since the partnership inception, the brand has diverted over 11.7 million empties from landfills, providing a comprehensive solution to personal care and beauty packaging waste with its free recycling program for hair care, skin care, and cosmetic product empties.
These empties have been upcycled into materials such as raised garden beds, benches, and picnic tables to build 13 parks, gardens and community spaces nationwide. To kickoff the Greenhouse Tour, Garnier built a garden at the University of Miami on March 17, and will help beautify a garden in New York City in recognition of Earth Day on April 22. The Greenhouse Tour is another opportunity to encourage reducing personal waste, as guests are invited to bring their beauty empties to the designated TerraCycle bin at the Garnier Greenhouse for recycling.

One lucky Floridan won the Powerball jackpot Saturday night.
There was only one winning ticket and someone in the Sunshine State matched all six numbers to grab the $235.4 million grand prize, according to the Powerball website. The winner will also have the cash option of $160 million instead.
The winning ticket was sold at the Publix supermarket on North Nebraska Avenue in Lutz, Florida, which is just north of Tampa, according to the Florida lottery. The retailer will receive a $95,000 for selling the ticket.
The winning numbers drawn on Saturday, March 27 were: 6 - 14 - 38 - 39 - 65 and Powerball 6. The Powerplay was 3x.
The jackpot was estimated to be $238 million prior to the drawing, but the jackpot ended up lower based on ticket sales.
Before Saturday night, the jackpot was last won on Jan. 30 by a lottery player who purchased the ticket at a Quick Chek in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey.
The Powerball jackpot will now reset to $20 million with a cash option of $13.6 million for Wednesday's drawing.
Florida is no stranger to jackpot winners as the Powerball has been won in the state 15 times since 2009. In August 2020, a lottery player in Boynton Beach, Fla. won a $168.5 million jackpot.
If you didn't win the Powerball, the Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $152 million with a cash option of $102.2 million for Tuesday's drawing, according to the Mega Millions website.

Greater Media, the private owners of Morris County's two primary commercial broadcast radio stations, has been sold to a publicly traded, Florida-based media group as part of a 21-station nationwide expansion, according to a statement by Beasley Broadcasting.
Beasley's $240 million purchase, subject to FCC and regulatory approval, includes WDHA-FM (105.5 FM) and WMTR (1250 AM). The Beasley statement announcing the acquisition, released this week, refers to those stations as being based in Morristown, but both stations broadcast from facilities on Horsehill Road in the Cedar Knolls section of Hanover.
"A focus on strong core programming and targeted localism has been the foundation of both companies’ operating philosophies, ratings strength and market leadership," Caroline Beasley, CFO and interim CEO of Beasley Broadcast Group, stated in the release. " As such, we intend to implement our proven strategy of focusing on local programming and effective digital media marketing solutions across the two companies as well as best practices from our existing operations with those from Greater Media.”
“We share with Beasley a common appreciation for the enduring strength of local radio broadcasting and we are delighted that our stations will become part of Beasley’s expanded footprint," Greater Media Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Peter H. Smyth stated in the same release. "As part of the Beasley portfolio, we believe our stations will be positioned extremely well for future growth and that our team members, customers and the communities we serve will continue to thrive."
A spokesperson for Beasley on Thursday declined comment about if the company has discussed any specific plans to change the format, programming or on-air talent at WDHA or WMTR.
Heidi Raphael, vice president of communications for Greater Media, told the Daily Record she is unaware of any plans to change formatting or programming at the stations.
Known as "The Rock of New Jersey," WDHA programs mainstream rock music for a core audience of 25-54-year-olds and maintains a strong presence at community and station-sponsored public events. The station also claims to be the first in the United States to play a CD, in 1983.
WMTR serves an older audience as "New Jersey's Oldies Authority," spinning popular hits from the 1950s, '60s and '70s. Both stations also sponsor and broadcast local news and information programming.
Representatives of WDHA and WMTR did not immediately return calls for comment.
Other stations based in Morris County include WCFT-LP (107.9 FM), a "low-power" station serving the ministry of Calvary Chapel Morris Hills in Dover, WNJY (89.3 FM), a Netcong-based affiliate of New Jersey Public Radio operated by the nonprofit New York Public Radio organization, and WXMC (1310 AM), an affiliate of World India Radio operating out of Parsippany.
The Morris School district also operates a student-run radio station, WJSV (90.5 FM).
