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 Jacksonville, 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.
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 Jacksonville, 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.
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:

After temporarily closing back in February to change locations, The Grazing Tray Owner Samantha Prevatte is ready to get her doors back open, but that’s not all — she’s also partnered with friend Jennifer Morton to bring even more to downtown Jacksonville.
The Grazing Tray has relocated to 720 Court Street, but it won’t be the only business in the building. While The Grazing Tray will operate during the day, Prevatte and Morton’s new business Dewey’s Bar & Bistro will operate during the evening.
“We relocated because we were given an incredible opportunity to have more of a forever home, rather than renting, which served me really well in the 16 months that I did rent,” Prevatte said. “It was just a really good season to make the transition to have a place that I knew would be forever until The Grazing Tray didn’t exist anymore. It was just time.”
Prevatte wants fans of The Grazing Tray to know, though, that they can expect the same vibe and the same quality of food as before. The main difference? They’ll now be serving coffee.
Because Coffee Haven, which previously shared space with The Grazing Tray at 622 Court Street, made the decision to stick to their one Sneads Ferry location, Prevatte said they’ve decided to add a full coffee menu to The Grazing Tray.
They’ll also now be open on the weekends. Before, The Grazing Tray was open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Now, though, they’ll be open Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
With The Grazing Tray operating during the day, the space will then transition into Dewey’s Bar & Bistro in the evening. And if the name “Dewey” sounds familiar, it’s because 720 Court Street once housed Dewey’s Restaurant in the 1940s.
Prevatte and Morton actually bought 720 Court Street from Dewey Edwards, a downtown attorney, whose father had a restaurant in the space many decades ago. Prevatte and Morton wanted to pay homage to the Dewey name, hence “Dewey’s Bar & Bistro.”
“Our goal is just to kind of have a space where you can go on dates, dress nice, but you can also come right after work and have dinner,” Prevatte said. “We’re going to have a menu that’s very boutique-style, so it’s not this large menu, but it’s all handcrafted food and drinks that we’ve been very intentional about. We’ve worked with Chef Brett Goins on building the menu.”
Goins is the executive chef for both The Grazing Tray and Dewey’s Bar & Bistro, and Prevatte said he’s become a pillar in curating menus between both establishments.
Prevatte added the focus of Dewey’s Bar & Bistro is going to be community, and they’ll even offer community seating.
She said people can come in and do a traditional sit-down dinner or visit the courtyard side. There will be TVs and the opportunity to play games, but Prevatte said the point is to allow for people to join one another at the various tables.
She said it’s really an opportunity to build relationships between people who don’t know each other.
Dewey’s Bar & Bistro will be open Sunday-Thursday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 5 p.m. to around 1 a.m. The concept of two businesses in one space is not one Prevatte and Morton have really seen in Jacksonville.
“Other places do it, it’s not uncommon, it maximizes the space,” Morton said. “You know, you probably don’t want to come to a deli/cafe at 11 p.m. but you sure would like to go to a bar, so it enables us to offer both.”
Prevatte said there will be signage for both businesses, with an understanding that the space will embody The Grazing Tray during the day and Dewey’s Bar & Bistro in the evening.
Although the two women don’t yet have an opening date that they’re ready to release, they said it will be very soon. With Prevatte’s restaurant background and Morton’s building/construction background, it’s a match made in heaven.
Morton actually also owns Horizons East Building Co., and she said they’re actually in the process of remodeling a building on the corner of New Bridge Street and Warlick Street. Horizons East does mostly residential construction, but Morton said she really wants to see other building owners invest money into downtown, as the area has a lot of potential.
“I think the idea is that it would be really nice to keep people in town and not going to our neighboring cities,” Prevatte said. “It was a risk bringing The Grazing Tray down here when there were only a very few select businesses. Because at the moment, we’re a destination location, but the idea in joining forces with Jennifer over here, is that we can be a downtown where you can spend the day. When we started this conversation, it really took off.”
Prevatte and Morton have also purchased the old Roses building at 614 Court Street, and although they are not yet ready to release details, Prevatte said they’re at the drawing board with ideas and have a lot of cool concepts they’re playing around with.
She added it’s a full investment so it’s going to take some time. They were actually in the process of closing on 614 Court Street when 720 became available.
“This is just something we could get in sooner, our concepts could come to life quicker, and we could have this up and running and getting life started, feet on the pavement. Then we could focus on that,” Prevatte said. “There were entrepreneurs before us that laid the foundations of these buildings, and there’s so many people coming in and out of this town with the military, they need somewhere to go that they don’t have to drive an hour to do.
“What’s better than two women who are willing to take a risk?”
Prevatte said it’s also important to note that both herself and Morton are from the area, and to see downtown come alive is something they didn’t get to experience in their early 20s.
She said moving into this space was a huge leap of faith, but she and Morton complement each other well.
As two successful female business owners, both Prevatte and Morton want young women to know they’re capable.
“Women tend to be reserved and unsure about putting themselves out there but you’re capable,” Morton said. “You have to have the wanting and you have to figure it out, but you’ve got to know that you can.”
Morton said she’s super passionate about women in business and empowering women. Prevatte added they’ve got three women-owned businesses to their left and she thinks it’s a big deal that deserves to be celebrated.
“Risk it for the biscuit,” Prevatte said. “That’s me all day long. Especially for indigenous and African American women, odds are already stacked against them, so just going out and pounding the pavement and not stopping when there’s obstacles. Be persistent and find a way around it. Building a community of strong women, too, I think is important.”
Jacksonville residents should keep their eyes and ears open for The Grazing Tray and Dewey’s Bar & Bistro, opening soon in downtown Jacksonville.

The Daily News conducted the interview with Blackbeard's Owner Dale Overbee in December but has updated the story to reflect the restaurant's opening.
A New Bern businessman is bringing his success to Jacksonville with the opening of Blackbeard’s Triple Play Restaurant and Sports Bar.
Dale Overbee, owner of several popular New Bern businesses, told The Daily News in December that he’s been looking to expand to Jacksonville for about four years, though the last two years is when he started looking more seriously.
Overbee announced the coming of Blackbeard’s to Jacksonville on Facebook in mid-December. The restaurant and sports bar set up shop in the old Twin Peaks building, which closed last year.
Overbee said the new bypass between Jacksonville and New Bern makes it easy to travel between the two, and he thinks bringing a concept the people of New Bern have enjoyed to Jacksonville will be successful.
“Blackbeard’s is, I call it, restaurant sports entertainment,” Overbee said. “What I have in New Bern is Blackbeard’s and Pirate’s Cove and also a brewery and distillery. What I’m taking to Jacksonville is Blackbeard’s and Pirate’s Cove combined together. Pirate’s Cove is seafood and Blackbeard’s is wings and steak. Combining those two together — I have everything.”
Overbee said he hopes to bring the same feel of his New Bern locations to Jacksonville. Some of what New Bern’s Blackbeard’s has to offer includes a jazz band on Mondays, trivia on Tuesdays and karaoke on Wednesdays. He also welcomes bands on Friday nights from 7:30-11 p.m.
Because Overbee didn't have to build an entirely new business, they planned to open by the end of March. However, that was pushed back just a bit to the beginning of May. Although he’s not sure what the future holds for business in Jacksonville, he’s excited to expand to the area.
“I think Jacksonville is missing that,” Overbee said. “I know, downtown New Bern, I’ve helped them with me bringing the concept that I have. I think, in Jacksonville, it’s going to be good because a lot of people from Jacksonville come here.”
Prior to his current portfolio, Overbee previously owned the Diamond Club, which was his first nightlife entertainment venue in New Bern. He also owned Bambooz Tiki Bar, located in the Bridgepointe Hotel and Marina and Triple Play Restaurant and Sports Bar, which closed due to new highway construction on U.S. 70.
In May of last year, Overbee opened Bootleggers and Barrels in New Bern, a bar, brewery and distillery. Overbee added he even has his own vodka, which is planned to be on shelves in local Jacksonville liquor stores soon.
According to reporting from The New Bern Sun Journal, in addition to his downtown bars and restaurants, Overbee is also the owner of Triple Play Oasis Restaurant and Sports Bar, located in the Coastal Carolina Regional Airport, Dale Overbee Construction and Dale’s Heating and Air Conditioning.
Blackbeard's opened Thursday and will host local band Spare Change on Friday and The BiPolar Express on Saturday.

Tropical Storm Ophelia develops off North CarolinaPotential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen organized and was designated Tropical Storm Ophelia on Friday, just hours before it was expected to make landfall in North Carolina with strong winds, dangerous storm surge and heavy rains.Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen organized and was designated Tropical Storm ...
Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen organized and was designated Tropical Storm Ophelia on Friday, just hours before it was expected to make landfall in North Carolina with strong winds, dangerous storm surge and heavy rains.
Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen organized and was designated Tropical Storm Ophelia on Friday, just hours before it was expected to make landfall in North Carolina with strong winds, dangerous storm surge and heavy rains.
Tropical Storm Warnings covered 3 million along the East Coast on Friday. Already, gusts were nearing 50 mph along North Carolina's Outer Banks as the 15th-named storm of the season bore down on the mid-Atlantic coast. Piney Island, North Carolina, hit a gust of 47 mph at 10 a.m. ET.
With weather conditions deteriorating in North Carolina, some coastal ferry routes have been suspended, according to the state ferry system.
Several airlines, including Delta, United and Southwest, have issued travel advisories, warning of potential flight delays along the East Coast. Many weekend events in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia have been canceled due to the threatening weather.
FOX Weather's Brandy Campbell reports from Hatteras Island, North Carolina, as Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen approaches.
The storm is 150 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina and 185 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.
Ophelia is moving north-northwest at 12 mph. Maximum sustained winds are 60 mph.
Tropical Storm Warnings stretch from near Cape Fear, North Carolina, north through all of coastal North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland to southern Delaware, including Albemarle and Pamlico sounds in North Carolina and parts of Chesapeake Bay.
A Tropical Storm Warning is issued when tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected in the warning area within 36 hours. These winds may be accompanied by storm surge and coastal flooding.
Coastal communities from North Carolina to the Delmarva Peninsula are either under a Storm Surge Warning or Watch. The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters that move inland from the coast.
The highest storm surge levels are expected in eastern North Carolina, with a storm surge of 3-5 feet expected.
"We also have Storm Surge Watches because the Storm Surge Watch means that the water could be more than 3 feet above high tide," said FOX Weather Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross. "When we look at that in more detail, we see that it's up to 3 feet down there - northern South Carolina into North Carolina. Then on Cape Hatteras, there's where the kind of the peak of this is - Cape Hatteras and then up north. So we're talking about in Pamlico Sound and then also up into Chesapeake Bay and the southern half of Chesapeake Bay."
Meanwhile, in the farther inland waters, Coastal Flood Advisories are in effect Friday night into Saturday morning, including Washington, D.C.
Some shoreline inundation up to about a half foot is expected in the nation's capital along portions of the seawall adjacent to Ohio Drive and Hains Point Loop Road, according to the National Weather Service. Farther south, closer to the ocean, waters may reach 1-3 feet above tidal levels. Coastal flooding of 1-3 feet is also expected along the shores of Delaware and much of New Jersey.
The NHC has forecast Ophelia to track north-northeast and make landfall over eastern North Carolina early Saturday morning. Ophelia is expected to maintain tropical storm strength and travel north along the coast of Virginia and Maryland.
After the cyclone starts to feel the impacts of land, the potential tropical cyclone is expected to weaken and become a post-tropical cyclone Sunday.
No matter the classification, impacts will be felt along much of the Interstate 95 corridor, including Washington, D.C., and New York City.
Ophelia will dump heavy rain on the mid-Atlantic and lash the area with strong winds and life-threatening storm surge along the coast, as well as produce heavy rain and even the possibility of isolated tornadoes.
"There is the potential for life-threatening storm surge inundation from Surf City, North Carolina to Chincoteague, Virginia, the Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds, and the lower Chesapeake Bay," the NHC wrote.
Several inches of rain are expected to fall from North Carolina to the Northeast and New England during the event, and strong winds pushing in from the ocean could cause coastal flooding. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has also issued a Level 2 out of 5 risk for severe thunderstorms, including a risk of tornadoes, for coastal North Carolina on Friday.
"Heavy rainfall from this system could produce localized urban and small stream flooding impacts across the eastern mid-Atlantic states from North Carolina to New Jersey Friday through Sunday," wrote the NHC.
Parts of the Northeast and southern New England could also see rainfall totals of 2–3 inches with locally higher amounts.
