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 Lantana, 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 Lantana, 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:

Lantana, FL — (ReleaseWire) — 10/27/2022 — Artificial turf is used for playing fields, playgrounds, parks, gardens, and golf courses. It is also used as a decorative surface in public areas such as airports or shopping malls. Artificial turf in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach, Florida has become famous for use on residential lawns due to its low maintenance requirements compared with natural grass. The artificial turf installation requires no digging up of existing soil; it can be laid over the top of the existing lawn with minimal disturbance to the surrounding area.
From the foundation up, one can count on a top-notch installation from TurfDoctor. They provide their clients with thick, low-maintenance lawns, ensuring they will enjoy a beautiful lawn for years to come. Over the years, the company installed more than a thousand synthetic turf systems in Florida, and every one was successful. They have developed a special formula for their lawns that promotes lush, healthy growth without the fuss and hassle of weeding or mowing.
One of the biggest advantages of artificial turf is that it looks just like the real thing. It helps reduce water usage and reduces stormwater runoff, but unlike lawns that are green only for part of the year, artificial turf maintains a uniform color and texture all year round. Other benefits include an increase in property values and noise reduction since artificial turf is not only cleaner than other types of lawns but also quieter.
While artificial grass from TurfDoctor is man-made, it has no adverse effect on the environment. They also provide OxyTurf upkeep, which is EPA-approved, non-toxic to dogs, and effective against 99.9% of germs and bacteria.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — After a 79-year-old woman fell to her death from the Royal Park Bridge earlier this month, Contact 5 has discovered other frightening incidents on Palm Beach County bridges after reviewing documents and receiving video through a public records request.
Oct. 21 video from the Ocean Avenue Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in Lantana shows a car drive on the drawbridge as the gate closes behind it. The driver then stops at the edge of the drawbridge span. Thirty-three seconds later, the drawbridge begins to open with the driver still behind the wheel.
The bridge lifts the vehicle where it teeters over a pit with a 40-foot drop. Appearing panicked, the driver opens the car's door. The gravity slides the car forward and it slams into the pavement below.
The bridge closes and the unidentified driver gets back into his car and drives away.
The bridge tender who was on duty that day, now a former Palm Beach County employee, told investigators that she "did not see" the vehicle on the bridge until she closed the drawbridge.
The county terminated the bridge tender for violating policies, including visually checking the spans. She declined an on-camera interview and told Contact 5 over the phone that her view from the bridge house was obstructed and she "just didn't see the car on the bridge."
Contact 5 started digging into bridge tenders after the tragic death of Carol Wright on Feb. 6, when the Royal Park Bridge connecting West Palm Beach to Palm Beach opened while walking with her bicycle to try to cross it.
Attorney Lance Ivey, who represents Wright's family, said the bridge is owned by the Florida Department of Transportation and is manned by bridge tenders from a third party, Florida Drawbridges Inc.
The company didn't respond to repeated requests for comment and the Florida Department of Transportation refused to comment on the investigation.
"When the bridge tender pushed that button to lift that bridge, that was basically giving Carol a slow mental and physical death sentence," Ivey said during a recent news conference.
Ivey said Wright's family is fighting to prevent a similar tragedy from occurring again.
"Our goal is that will never ever, ever, ever happen to another family," he said.

LANTANA, FLORIDA- Everyone knows about big name high school football quarterbacks in Florida like Miami Central’s Keyon Jenkins, Chaminade-Madonna’s Cedrick Bailey, IMG Academy‘s Jayden Bradford and Nease’s Marcus Stokes.
One name that doesn’t appear on everyone’s radar, however, is Santaluces’ signal caller Will Prichard. The senior quarterback has arguably been the most efficient passer in the state of Florida and he has the statistics to back it up.
Prichard has completed 65-of-93 passes (69.9 percent) for 981 yards and 14 touchdowns with an eye-popping passer rating of 143.9. The most important stat line: zero interceptions.
The Santaluces’ quarterback said on not throwing an interception as of yet, it’s not really something he thinks about often despite playing the game’s most important position.
“My key with efficiency is finding something to get better at every day and to break down film in different ways,” Prichard said. “Not really. I try to limit my mistakes in practice so I won’t happen in the game and it also comes with constantly studying.”
Prichard’s best game this season was in Santaluces’ 42-6 victory against Olympic Heights where the quarterback threw for 415 yards and five touchdowns. What has been incredible is his efficiency through the air.
Along with Prichard’s success on offense has Santaluces winning more games on the field. Last season, the Chiefs went 1-8 before Prichard transferred over from King’s Academy, which he led them to 6-4 record.
The Chiefs’ wide receiving corps has been one of the better units in Palm Beach County, with players like 6-foot-5 senior Chase Hanning (315 yards), Zakavvion Edgecombe (151 yards) and Jamar Browder (150 yards). Running back Curtis Douglas has helped out as well with 164 yards rushing.
Continuity amongst the team between playing in plenty of passing tournaments and going on team camps has brought the Chiefs much closer together.
“I think the thing that has helped the most was 7-on-7’s and team camps over the summer those really brought us together,” Prichard said. “My offensive line and receivers have been outstanding they are the guys that make me look good and they deserve more credit.”
Santaluces won’t play its schedule contest versus Lake Worth this week due to games being cancelled or postponed due to Hurricane Ian in Palm Beach County. The Chiefs will be back in action next week.
On Oct. 13 (Thursday), the Chiefs are slated to take on Boca Raton in one of the area’s better matchup. It should be another chance for Prichard to display why he is the state’s top passer and to impress college scouts.
Prichard holds a handful of offers, with Auburn, East Carolina, Utah and Vanderbilt as his suitors. The senior plans to take his time before making any kind of decision on where he will end up on the next level.
“Not really, I’m still taking my visits and seeing what I like and I want to find the best situation for me,” Prichard said about his college options and where he’s leaning.
Confidence isn’t something Prichard is lacking whatsoever at the midway point of the season as many have debated throughout who might be the best quarterback in the state.
When asked about the comparisons to other signal callers around the state, the Chiefs’ quarterback feels like he already is the best in the Sunshine State.
“I think I am already the best quarterback in the state, just people are finally starting to recognize it and I’m going to keep working harder to be the best player I can be,” Prichard added.
