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 Lower East Side, NY 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 Lower East Side, NY 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:

Concealed by an original graffiti-worn door on Rivington Street in the lively Lower East Side neighborhood, Tigre is the area’s sleek new cocktail lounge that melds the eclectic atmosphere found in Lower Manhattan’s clubs with the abundant energy of an affluent private dwelling in New York City.
At the helm of Premiere Enterprises, the team behind Brooklyn-based award-winning oyster and cocktail bar Maison Premiere, it’s no surprise that Tigre would be a design-savvy masterpiece that transports its guests to an entirely different destination than the one they’re arriving at. Much like the diverse artistic and cultural landscape of the LES, the lounge serves as a canvas where two narratives unfold concurrently: glimpses of New York’s gilded speakeasy era seamlessly blend with the essence of contemporary Manhattan.
Dripping in golden-hued glamour, the room evokes a timeless and refined style. Guests are welcomed by a corridor adorned with golden mirrors framed in rich dark oak paneling, accompanied by caramel-hued and tiger-embroidered upholstery in the intimate main room. From its walls swathed in ultrasuede and polished steel to its secluded seating corners and sumptuous couches dressed in jacquard velvet, plus an overall contrast of industrial textures (think: chain metal, copper tables, and nickel), there’s an element of elitist sophistication permeating throughout the space. Sultry retro art by French artist Jean-Paul Goude adds a seductive touch.
The central attraction is an eight-person horseshoe-shaped bar showcasing a glittering champagne island illuminated by a bespoke geometric chandelier at its core—where the drinks flow. Cocktails are listed under “Then” or “Now,” depending on whether they honor classic elixirs of yesteryear or embrace new-wave flavors: a traditional Rolls Royce comprising gin, Moscato Chinato, Benedictine, and saffron contrasts an inventive Cherchez La Femme with chartreuse, coffee, and cacao. Furthermore, non-alcoholic options like Non-1 (featuring salted raspberry and chamomile) and Non-3 (highlighting toasted cinnamon and yuzu) are available, ensuring that every visitor can delight in the richness of this bar.
Although we’re partial to daringly delicious libations, the most alluring aspect is undeniably the “Martinis by Ratio” offerings. Guests can tailor their martini preferences within a spectrum ranging from 4-to-1 through 16-to-1—and if you find yourself uncertain about the ratios, the expert bartenders will be happy to provide guidance. To complete the recipe, you can choose from a high-quality selection of vodkas, such as Grey Goose and Chopin Family Reserve, or gins, including Jung One and Cadenhead’s “Old Raj-More,” according to your fondness.
While walk-ins are accepted, guests should know there’s a dress code before entering—athletic wear, worn-down sneakers, ripped jeans, raggedy t-shirts, and hats are frowned upon. The Maître D team will decide your fate. Tigre is a classy spot, to say the least.

Part of the Food Policy Community Spotlight Series
What they do: The Lower East Side (LES) Ecology Center is a nonprofit organization committed to fostering environmental awareness and sustainability in urban communities, with a particular focus on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. They strive to promote ecological responsibility through recycling initiatives, educational programs, and community engagement, working to create a greener, more resilient, and equitable city.
How they do it: The LES Ecology Center implements a range of initiatives to achieve their goals. They operate 20 food scrap drop-off sites across the city, where residents can drop-off their food scraps for composting which then turn into finished compost for local parks, gardens and urban farming projects. They also offer electronics recycling opportunities to protect the city’s land, water and air from pollution. Additionally, the center conducts environmental education workshops and training programs, advocating for waste reduction, recycling best practices, and sustainable living choices.
Latest project/campaign: The Ecology Center’s Food Justice Program was launched in 2021 to create an educational and food-producing garden in partnership with the Henry Street Settlement. At the Food Justice Garden, participants learn about food systems and how food access impacts individual, community, and environmental health. Additionally, participants practice skills in growing and cooking food to prepare nutritious and seasonal meals. All food produced in this space is used in education workshops or shared in the local community fridges.
Major Funding: Government
Annual Budget: $2.4 million
Interesting fact about how it is working to positively affect the food system: The Ecology Center’s Food Justice Program is impacting the food systems by empowering Lower East Side youth with awareness to make healthy, sustainable consumer food choices. For example, the 2023 summer youth cohort partnered with Chefs for Impact to learn how to source local and seasonal produce from the farmers market while getting to know the vendors and farmers, and turn the ingredients into homemade meals such as pesto pasta, curries, fruit salad, corn cakes, and more!

IfIf you stopped by M?m when it opened, you might have thought it was a permanent restaurant. In a way, it always was more than a pop-up: The Vietnamese spot is by partners in love and life, Jerald Head and Nhung Dao began at 70 Forsyth Street, near Hester Street. As of this month, the restaurant, considered to serve some of the best Vietnamese food in town, has expanded next door taking over an additional storefront.
Head, an alum of Di An Di, and his wife, Dao, took over the Forsyth Street space in May 2022. At first, M?m functioned as a residency, a pop-up with no specific end date, up until this October when they decided to stay more permanently and signed a lease.
Open several days a week for dinner, and on the weekends for brunch, customers could book seats via the platform Hotplate, choosing among theme nights like Vietnamese snails or hot pot with fermented rice, turmeric, catfish, and green bananas. The setup caught the attention of the New York Times’s Pete Wells, who called it New York’s “most exciting Vietnamese food” (somewhat of a rare review for the critic, who largely up until the pandemic, typically focused on more traditional restaurant formats) at the time and later listed it as one of the “100 best restaurants in New York.”
In early December 2023, Head and Dao expanded next door to 70A Forsyth Street, which enables the duo to have a total of 45 seats between the two spaces.
“It’s an extension for our dining room, and we have a massive basement which will offer us better infrastructure and more space to build a bigger menu,” says Head. Like any restaurant looking to make things more professional, they plan to move to Resy to take more straightforward reservations versus booking tickets, and a more consistent menu will eventually follow.
“The volume of guests and food we were doing, it was bound to happen [that we needed more space]. It wasn’t sustainable in this tiny space and growth,” he says.
70 Forsyth Street has been several different Vietnamese concepts in the past few years. B?p Gà had the space for five years before closing in 2021. But it’s a bit of homecoming for the duo behind M?m — they first held pop-ups in the space back in 2020. With the restaurant industry uncertain, they forewent signing more officially. The B?p Gà team then handed it over to Rise & Miso, a Japanese onigiri cafe. It then found itself in the hands of Ha’s ??c Bi?t, another Vietnamese pop-up, before transferring to M?m.
Beyond all the happenings on the Lower East Side, this weekend, M?m combined forces with the team behind Di An Di at Williamsburg wine bar Sauced for a pop-up called Bia Hoi, a beer and wine “dream project” they have in the works together.

Maison Premiere, Williamsburg’s New Orleans-inspired cocktail bar, has opened a Manhattan sibling. Tigre is located at 105 Rivington Street, at Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side. William Elliott, bar director at Maison Premiere, will likewise oversee the beverage menu — which pulled ideas from Playboy’s Host & Bar Book — at Tigre. Cocktails have names like the Rolls Royce and Mister Softee, there are also “Martinis by Ratio” which allows guests to “tailor their martini preferences with precision, with options ranging from 4:1 to 16:1.” The space features a horseshoe-shaped bar, in a space that hopes to evoke “residential sexiness in New York from the 1970s, ’80s, and maybe even ’90s,” according to Grub Street. Co-founders Joshua Boissy and Krystof Zizka’s Maison Premiere has been heaped with accolades since opening in 2011. This spring, they published The Maison Premiere Almanac, a cocktail book. Financial troubles have also hung above the group. In 2019, Eater reported the Williamsburg bar and its now-closed restaurant Sauvage were millions of dollars in debt and had filed for bankruptcy protection. In Manhattan, Tigre is open Sundays through Wednesdays, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Thursdays through Saturday, until 2 a.m.
Rick Curi and Itir Aloba, owners of Gran Electrica, a Dumbo Mexican restaurant, are opening a new spot. The Noble opens this weekend with cuisine referencing the Aegean region like chilled shrimp with lemon crushed fava, zucchini fritters, grilled octopus, and seared halloumi. Josh Lucio Lasso, who previously worked at Public Records and Ensenada, is leading the kitchen as executive chef. He’s joined by general manager and sommelier Miles Meltz, previously of Ci Siamo. The Noble is located at 148 Noble Street, at Lorimer Street in Greenpoint.
Figure Eight opens today, from the team behind neighboring Silver Apricot. The new restaurant pulls from owner Emmeline Zhao’s heritage, mixing Chinese and American Southern cuisines. Figure Eight’s kitchen is led by Calvin Hwang (formerly of Saga and Crown Shy). The menu lists turnip tots, a “breakfast chowder” with youtiao, and a crab pimento dip. A mini tempura lobster roll pays homage to the restaurant’s former tenant: Pearl Oyster Bar. Figure Eight is located at 18 Cornelia Street, near Bleecker Street, in the West Village. It opens tonight, November 15.
Things are heating up in the Downtown Manhattan slice shop scene. Just as L’Industrie has opened its first Manhattan outpost, so, too, has Lucia Pizza. The slice shop, which first opened last year from Salvatore Carlino in Sheepshead Bay, opens today at 375 Canal Street, at West Broadway, in Soho.

Named for the Italian word “dimple,” Fossetta is a new natural wine bar and all-day dining destination on New York City’s Lower East Side. With such a name, it’s only fitting that the eatery boasts a “dedicated” focaccia program. Each of the four styles is made entirely in-house from a unique sourdough starter. Variations include Ricotta and Hot Honey, plus Garlic Cream and Fontina Cheese.
Long-time friends, colleagues, and hospitality veterans Julie Park, Joshua Even, and Chef Charlene Santiago (also behind Williamsburg mainstay Cafe Colette) put together an ambitious and zealous menu comprised of Italian-leaning Mediterranean plates.
The array of Antipasti is robust, ranging from Peanuts with Ras El Hanout and Olives with Calabrian Chili Oil to pick at, as well as more substantial items like Egg Tonnato, Smashed Eggplant, and Marinated Octopus.
The Primi is where the meal starts to pick up. Fried Pig Ear is served with a zingy onion agrodolce, and Cauliflower and Red Onion are battered in polenta and finished with a hazelnut romesco. Fresh salads will be available year-round, based entirely on the seasonal selection, although the Mixed Chicories will forever live on the menu––they’re tricked up with ricotta salata and splashed with oregano vinaigrette.
Seemingly a nod to the Roman Mother pasta, only four pasta dishes are offered. Glance around the dining room and unsurprisingly, one will notice they have the entire dining room in a chokehold––more specifically, the Chicken Liver Rigatoni with marsala cream and the guanciale-rich Bucatini all’Amatriciana.
The Secondi portion of the menu is home to heartier options such as Pork Belly Porchetta with sage, fennel, and salsa verde; Roasted Half Chicken topped with pickled peppers and jus; as well as Fluke Tranche topped with puttanesca.
With spotlights on Italian, French, and Spanish vintners, the curated wine collection emphasizes natural and biodynamic bottles. This is the perfect place to try some funkier, even downright weird varietals and blends, or lean into classic Rhones and Italian Primitivos.
Design for the 55-seat interior involved bringing yet another friend into the fold: Park and one of her closest friends, Janelle Lee, spearheaded the vision. A mix of banquette-style booths, bar stools, and tables for up to four people create a convivial and relaxed atmosphere, encouraging friends to amble in and pull up a seat. Lofty ceilings give way to a custom walnut-backed bar, while Art Deco touches and bespoke ceramics further enhance the experience.
Whether it just be for a glass of wine or a full meal, Fossetta sets the tone for an exemplary evening.
