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 Coral Gables, 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 Coral Gables, 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:

Ever had ice cream flavored after Miami’s most well-known and sought after delicacies? If the answer is no, get ready to remedy your sweet tooth at Coral Gables’ newest ice cream shop – Sweet Melody Ice Cream Co.
The ice cream shop, known for its ability to make delicious, unforgettable flavors that marry comfort with creativity, will now hold two locations — its new Coral Gables location at 3814 SW Eighth St., Coral Gables, FL 33134, and its first location, “La Ventanita,” at 15224 SW 72 St., Miami, FL 33193.
Sweet Melody’s story began when its owner, Mike Romeu, bought a $50 lime green ice cream maker at Brandsmart in 2014. It sat untouched for a year and a half, at first in a storage unit while he was moving homes, and then in the corner of the garage, still in its box. After losing his job, as if by serendipity, the ice cream maker found its way back into his life.
“Rinsing off that ice cream maker and turning it on changed my life forever,” said Mike Romeu, CEO and owner of Sweet Melody. “Since then, I have strived to make the best ice cream you will ever try. I named the shop after the person I love most in this world, my daughter, Melody. This way, I know we will always make our ice cream the best it can possibly be.”
Sweet Melody prides itself in presenting familiar (and not so familiar) flavors in a whimsical and creative way, telling its story one pint at a time by using only the finest ingredients.
The shop features a variety of flavor offerings: signature, seasonal, popular, zodiac, sorbets and dairy-free options, and even ice cream sandwiches to guarantee every craving is satisfied.
Inspired heavily by Miami and the city’s cultural influence, guests can try eclectic and delicious ice cream flavors like “Bo & Jo’s Guava Cream Cheese,” an ode to Mike’s childhood, a snack that his grandmother made for him as a child and a classic Cuban combo that is a beautiful representation of the brand’s identity.
The base is rich Brazilian guava with cheesecake and swirls of guava marmalade to amplify the sweet fruit flavor; “Abuela’s Flan,” inspired by his grandmother’s caramel heavy and chewy signature dessert; and “Kooki Monster,” a fun blue vanilla flavor concoction loaded with chewy, homemade chocolate chip cookies and tons of Oreos for the ultimate comfort treat. One taste, and you’ll realize why it’s the shop’s best selling flavor.
Hours of Operation are: Friday, 3-11 p.m.; Saturday, noon -11 p.m., and Sunday, noon-10 p.m.

Additionally, 30,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space includes a 9,000 square foot ballroom – the largest in the city – and a 9th floor event deck with spectacular views of downtown Coral Gables, appropriately known as The City Beautiful.
The hotel is the second property in the greater Miami area, for New York based Loews Hotels & Co, joining the iconic 790-room Loews Miami Beach Hotel, located in the epicenter of South Beach.
"This opening marks a significant milestone for us as we add a second hotel in South Florida, furthering our belief in Miami as a destination," said Jonathan Tisch, Chairman & CEO, Loews Hotels & Co.

For one hour, on various dates through the holiday season, several major cities in South Florida get into the spirit of giving.
One is the gift of relieving the worry of finding a parking ticket on your windshield after you finished shopping or catching a show.
But it’s not the gift that keeps on giving.
Here are the details:
The Miami Parking Authority is the first to begin its season perennial “Holiday Parking Courtesy Citation” program, and it’s doing so earlier season. The parking break starts on Monday, Nov. 28, and runs through Friday, Jan. 2.
Started over a decade ago, Miami’s parking courtesy program will be in effect daily, 24 hours a day, when Nov. 28 starts before 12:01 a.m. until Jan. 2 ends after 11:59 p.m.
The courtesy program applies to all on-street parking spaces managed by the Miami Parking Authority. Customers who purchase parking at a single-space meter, master meter, or via the PayByPhone app are eligible. Once the parking session expires, customers receive a special holiday courtesy citation explaining that they have been granted up to one free hour of parking beyond the expiration time.
“This holiday season, we are inspired and encouraged by the spirit of Miamians and surrounding communities,” said chief executive officer Alejandra “Alex” Argudin in a statement.
Every time we go to opening nights at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre on Miracle Mile and street park, we plead with the parking gods: “Please don’t give us a ticket because the meter limit is three hours and PayByPhone app in this location only lets you extend after that city-set three hours expires.”
We just don’t feel right blinding distracting our seatmates or the actors in the darkened theater by taking out our phone to tap out a parking extension before curtain call.
So Gables show-goers and shoppers can get a one-hour reprieve from Dec. 5 to Dec. 25 for metered parking. Instead of a citation, city officials will place a holiday card on a vehicle, said Coral Gables spokeswoman Martha Pantin.
Additionally, on Saturday, Nov. 26, as part of Coral Gables’ support of Small Business Saturday, the city will make parking free at its four municipal parking garages, for that day only.
These include the two parking garages on Andalusia — one across from the Publix supermarket between Le Jeune Road and Salzedo Street, and a second one between Salzedo and Ponce de Leon Boulevard. There is another garage by Giralda Plaza on Aragon Avenue and the fourth one is the Coral Gables Museum Garage on Aragon across the street from the museum.
Miami Beach, including destination spots in South Beach, will direct its officers to place a holiday courtesy notice on a car’s windshield instead of a parking ticket — a one-hour courtesy — Dec. 18-26, said city spokeswoman Melissa Berthier.
