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 Doral, 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 Doral, 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:

In this article, we will be taking a look at the 25 Biggest Florida Companies and Stocks. To skip our detailed analysis, you can go directly to see the 5 Biggest Florida Companies and Stocks.
If all U.S. states were countries, Florida would be the 18th biggest economy in the entire world, bigger than the Netherlands, Indonesia (the largest Muslim country in the world), Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. Florida is home to several major industries which contributed to a GDP of nearly $1.3 trillion in 2021 including tourism, agriculture, construction, international banking, healthcare, and aerospace and defense. In the U.S., it is the fourth largest state by GDP, behind only California, Texas and New York and contributes more than 5% of the U.S.'s total GDP. It is also among the biggest exporter of goods in the U.S. and also among the biggest importers of trade goods. Of all the metropolitan areas in the state, the Miami Metropolitan Area is by far the biggest, more than double that of the next biggest metropolitan area.
Even though Florida was particularly hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, mainly due to governmental policies which tried to avoid lockdowns as far, it does seem that the policy worked to an extent as Florida is among the states with the lowest unemployment rates in 2022, showing a successful reemergence from the Covid-19 pandemic. In November 2022, Florida's unemployment rate was just 2.6%, having gained 428,200 jobs or 4.7% compared to the previous year. This may change as widespread layoffs are expected in the state in 2023 from various industries because of an economic slowdown.
Tourism is an extremely important part of Florida's GDP with around 40 million visitors each year and in 2019, the tourism industry contributed $96 billion to the state's GDP. When the pandemic struck, tourism was one of the worst impacted industries and the state saw the number of tourists fall by 70% from the previous year, which had a major impact on Florida's GDP in 2020 and 2021. In 2022, as the world has mostly returned to pre-pandemic policies, tourism has improved significantly as well and registered an increase of 39.4% from the previous year, which bodes well for Florida's future. However, this has to be balanced with major economic headwinds as a result of high inflation and interest rates, while a recession is imminent.

Streamsong Resort, which has called Polk County of Central Florida home for just over a decade, is a bit of an outlier when it comes to golf in the Sunshine State.
It has now been sold from its original owner to a group affiliated with Kemper Sports, which has managed the courses at Streamsong.

While most courses are flat and surrounded by homes in private country clubs, this expansive area that covers 16,000 acres features natural dunes created from phosphate mines in this mostly rural area about an hour east of Tampa. Mosaic, the company that manages that industry, is selling the land to Kemper. Only around 2,500 of those acres have been developed.
In short, this is not Bay Hill, Doral, Innisbrook, TPC Sawgrass, or any other Florida course you’ve played or heard of.
The resort is home to three 18-hole courses that are all on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses.
— Jack Hirsh (@JR_HIRSHey) December 28, 2022
In addition to the three courses, a short course is being developed. It is also home to multiple practice areas, a 228-room hotel, outdoor pool, tennis courts, bass fishing spots, a shooting range, and spa, along with several restaurants and bars, making it a resort that you don’t have to leave for the entirety of your trip.
The resort has also gained popularity in recent years. When a sale was first explored in 2016, Mosaic was seeking around $90 million. The Kemper sale is reportedly for $160 million.

Ian Poulter, who played for the Ryder Cup Europe team in 2021, appeared to be upset with the lack of birthday shoutouts from the team’s Twitter account.
Poulter turned 47 on Tuesday, and his teammate Sergio Garcia turned 43 on Monday. Both golfers left the PGA Tour and opted to play in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, which ruffled feathers in 2022.
Poulter responded to the Ryder Cup Europe Twitter account after a tweet of a video showing Francesco Molinari getting onto the green from the rough. The tweet read "incredible touch."
"What’s really an ‘incredible touch’ is the Players that helped build the @RyderCupEurope Brand with other players as well," Poulter wrote. "You can’t just bring yourself to say a simple Happy Birthday. @TheSergioBarcia B’day Yesterday. Unfortunately this says so much."
Poulter was razzed a bit on Twitter, even from teammate Lee Westwood, but took it in stride.
Padraig Harrington picked Poulter to be on the Ryder Cup Europe team in 2021 along with Garcia and Shane Lowry. Poulter was 1-2 in three matches and picked up one point. The U.S. won the Ryder Cup.
LIV Golfers are not exactly prohibited from Ryder Cup qualification. Luke Donald could invite European players who joined LIV as his captain picks unless eligibility strictly changes leading up to the tournament.
Poulter said in October he still hoped to play in the Ryder Cup again.
"We can still qualify for the team as far as I’m aware," Poulter said, via the Guardian. "Unless we’ve been told we can’t qualify, then I’m still ready to play as much as I possibly can and try and make that team."
Earlier this month, Jon Rahm called on golf organizations to make a uniform decision on the matter.
"There's some people that are going to have to make some tough choices, right? A little bit of that is out of my reach. My guess is I hope the PGA of America and European Tour make a decision together. I don't think it would be smart to have one team allowing LIV players and one not to," he said, via CBS Sports.
"And besides that, even if they decide not to on that side, I think it's going to give an opportunity for a lot of great young players to show up and have the chance in Europe, right? It's just going to be an opportunity for all of them. We saw a younger U.S. team last Ryder Cup and they did what they did. So I'm hoping these younger guys who have grown up watching the Ryder Cup and seeing their idols do what they do, let's say, it energizes the team a little bit in any manner and we show up there to win."

An assisted living facility could sell land next to its campus near North Miami to an apartment developer.
Miami-based Abreu Development filed an administrative site plan with Miami-Dade County for the Delmas North Apartments. They would be located on the 1.71-acre site on the west side of the Pinecrest Rehabilitation Center at 13650 N.E. Third Court. Pinecrest Ltd., managed by Andrew S. Weisman, owns the assisted living center and the vacant land. It’s agreed to sell the latter property to Abreu Development.
Daniel Abreu, a principal of the developer, said the land was approved decades ago for the expansion of the assisted living facility, but that didn’t take place. Eventually, it was put up for sale.
“Land like this should have been built on years ago,” Abreu said. “More people want to live east of Interstate 95, close to the beaches, workplaces and the highway.”
The developer previously received County Commission approval for a land use change on the site, but this is the first time the site plan with a specific number of units has been revealed.
The six-story Delmas North Apartments would total 77,971 square feet, with 80 units and 141 parking spaces. There would be no major amenities in order to keep development costs and rents down, Abreu said.
It would include eight workforce housing units for people making 120% to 140% of area median income.
The median household income in Miami-Dade County is $57,815.
Units would range from 577 to 1,051 square feet. There would be 30 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedroom units and 20 three-bedroom units.
Doral-based Cabrera Ramos Architects designed the project, and the developer is represented by Miami-based attorney Jerry B. Proctor. Access to the building will be from Northeast Second Court.
Abreu said he hopes to break ground in early summer and he believes construction costs are coming down.
“Construction costs have come down a bit because of the slowdown,” he said. “They're nothing like pre-pandemic levels, but the cost of wood and steel is down 20% to 30%. And there’s a better availability of supply.”

Florida High School Athletic Association Executive Director Craig Damon brought up the idea of an Open Division during the association’s Football Advisory Committee meeting on Thursday.
The basic concept is the top eight programs in the state on the final rankings would immediately be placed in the Open Division and compete for a state championship.
There could either be one Open Division that would involve all teams or two Open Divisions — one for schools with an enrollment over 1,500 students and one for schools with an enrollment under 1,500.
Some of the details certainly could change before it goes to a vote or is implemented, but that’s the basic concept.
While the measure still has a long way to go before it becomes reality, it is worth looking at how the 2022 season would have been different if there were two Open Divisions.
Bottom line, two potential Open Divisions would have resulted in new state champions in five of the nice classes.
(Seeds are based on the final football rankings)
2. St. Thomas Aquinas
3. Bartram Trail
5. Plantation-American Heritage
7. Pine Forest
1. Miami Central
2. Trinity Christian
4. University Christian
5. Clearwater Central Catholic
6. Cardinal Gibbons
7. Florida High
8. Miami-Booker T. Washington
Columbus, which beat Apopka in an overtime thriller in the state championship game, would be in the Open Division and certain change things. Apopka, Ocoee and Palm Beach Central still would advance to the Final Four, but Region 4 would be shaken up. Western, which lost to region runner-up Doral Academy, would be the No. 1 seed.
If Doral won the region, the state semifinal games would have been No. 1 Palm Beach Central hosting No. 4 Doral and No. 2 Apopka hosting No. 3 Ocoee.
This class is shaken up significantly without state champion Aquinas, Region 1 champion Jones and Region 1 runner-up Edgewater all in the Open Division.
Oviedo becomes the top seed in Region 1 with 2021 Class 7A state-runner up Tampa Bay Tech at No. 3. Dillard jumps to the No. 1 seed in Region 3 with Blanche Ely — which beat Dillard in the regional semifinal — at No. 2.
In the Final Four, Ely would have been the top overall seed and host Region 2 champion Jesuit with Region 4 champion Homestead playing the Region 1 champion.
Another class that loses some its top teams: Miami Central (Class 2M champion), Plantation-American Heritage (Class 2M runner-up), Cardinal Gibbons (Region 3 runner-up) and Booker T. Washington (Region 4 semifinalist).
Fort Lauderdale-Calvary Christian would be the No. 1 seed in Region 3 and Boynton Beach at No. 2. Both teams went 8-2 in the regular season. Miami Norland, the Region 4 runner-up, becomes the top seed in Region 4 with Miami Northwestern at No. 2.
This could go several different ways. Norland or Northwestern would be the top overall seed in the Final Four and host either Lakewood or Boynton Beach (if it won Region 3). No. 2 Bolles would host the No. 3 seed, either Calvary Christian (if it won Region 3) or Lakewood.
The top four seeds in the class — Trinity Christian (Region 1 finalist), Chaminade-Madonna (state champion), University Christian (state semifinalist) and Clearwater Central Catholic (state runner-up) — all are in the Open Division. That’s three of the four regional champions.
Cardinal Newman becomes the No. 1 seed and beat Benjamin twice in 2022, so it’s a pretty safe projection in Region 3. First Academy beat Orlando Christian Prep in the regular season and Carrollwood Day beat Northside Christian in the playoffs, so those are strong projections for Region 1 and Region 2, respectively.
Final four matchups in this scenario would be Cardinal Newman hosting True North (Region 4 champion) and Carrollwood Day hosting First Academy.
State champion Lakeland and Region 1 finalist Bartram Trail both are lost to the Open Division. The only big change to the playoff picture would be in Region 2, where regional finalist Lake Minneola moves up to the top seed.
If Lake Minneola won the regional championship, the state semifinal matchups would have been Venice hosting Lake Minneola and Buchholz hosting Kissimmee-Osceola.
Pine Forest, which went undefeated during the regular season but was upset in the regional semifinals, was the lone team from the classification to qualify for the Open Division. Had there been an open division, the bracket remains largely unchanged.
State runner-up Florida High moves into the Open Division with state champion Cocoa remaining.
Regional finalist Suwannee was the No. 2 seed in Region 1, so it would move up to the top seed in the region with West Florida moving to No. 2. Suwanee beat West Florida in the regional semifinal.
A Suwanee regional champion would have set up a Final Four with Bradford hosting Bishop Verot and Suwannee hosting Cocoa.
No teams from this classification qualified for the Open Division.
State champion Hawthorne missed the Open Division by one spot, so this class cation also remains unchanged.
