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 Maywood, 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 Maywood, 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:

Smokers across the US are becoming super-fans of the surging all-star strain Gary Payton.
Since its 2019 release, Gary Payton has become a top 200 most popular variety nationwide—in stores from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Miami and Boston. The NBA Hall-of-Famer licensed his name to the strain. But you need not enjoy sports to love the strain’s heavy-hitting hybrid indica effects, and its sweet, fuel, and stone fruit taste. Gary Payton flower goes into joints and bowls across the US, and it’s super popular in cartridge and dab forms, too.
All these factors and more make the officially licensed Gary Payton the starting Leafly HighLight strain for 2023.
Bred by Kenny Dumetz of Powerzzzup Genetics in San Francisco, and co-selected by cannabis mogul Berner of Cookies—Gary Payton has an average review score of 4.6 out of 5 from 249 reviews.
Leafly reviewers consistently say G.P. makes them giggly, talkative, and relaxed—great for these cold, dark, and rainy winter days. Gary Payton warms and brightens moods as an after-work treat for getting your stuff done.
“It’s a rainy night right now and it’s making me happy as fuck so 5/5,” said one reviewer.
“Best giggly strain on the planet,” said another.
Mood management and appetite stimulation consistently pop up in Gary Payton strain reviews.
One reviewer wrote: “DEPRESSION CURED. ANXIETY CURER. grammarly is on and i stil cant spell.”
“If you don’t want munchies I don’t recommend it,” said another.
Breeder Kenny Powers has a professional lifetime smoker’s tolerance, so prepare accordingly for maximum THC effects.
“I tried opening my apartment’s front door with my debit card until I realized while I was in the motion of putting the card in the key slot.”
One reviewer said, “this strain made my friend reverse puberty. He was talking in the highest voice possible for about 30 mins.”
On the West Coast, Gary Payton’s so popular that it approaches commodity prices. As you head east, supplies are lower and G.P. gets more expensive. Oregon has $3 half-gram pre-rolls of G.P. and $30 1-gram dabs. Florida has $50 eighths and $74 grams of live resin.
Wanna grow some G.P.? Good call. The problem is: Lots of reputable seed outlets have sold out of authentic G.P. genetics, so beware of less reputable outlets. (One group of charlatans sells G.P. seeds for $50 per seed.)
We’d grow the G.P. x Zawtz from Cannarado, via SeedsHereNow. The official Cookies Seedbank has the G.P. cross Elephant Trunk (G.P. x Sherb). Exotic Genetix has Power—G.P. x Scotty 2 Hotty, and Clearwater Genetics made Gargantua (G.P. x Apple Mints). Lastly, packs of Tiki Madman’s Super Sonic (G.P. x Gelato 41 bx) probably contain a winner or two. Official Powerzzzup seeds are coming soon to the Cookies seedbank, so stay subscribed.
Gary Payton is a sibling of Cereal Milk off The Y line—that’s champion genetics right there. Notably, two Gary Payton hashes have taken home the most recent awards: a Gary Payton hash took 1st place in the 2022 Errl Cup in Arizona; and a 2nd in 2022’s The Emerald Cup. A Gary’s Wedding won 3rd in the Oregon Grower’s Cup 2022, and a G.P. took first place for pinene terpenes in the 2022 Cowboy Cup in Oklahoma.
The aroma molecules (aka terpenes) of Gary Payton offer a collection of what’s hot in pot. It’s got caryophyllene which brings the gas (some might call it ‘pepper’). Lab tests also show a lot of limonene and pinene, two more astringent, biting terps that contribute to G.P.’s power.
Can’t find our HighLight? No harm, no foul. Here are three more analogous flavors to savor.
NBA Hall-of-fame player Gary Payton earned the nickname “The Glove,” and now it’s the official name for the Gary Payton x Leafly Strain of the Year 2022 Jealousy cross from Seed Junky Genetics with Powerzzzup. Again, you’re in the Cereal Milk meets Gelato wheelhouse, so expect thick, sweet, dank fuel and fruit smells with unstoppable power. The indica hybrid effect is relaxing and great for riding out the long winter.
The hot-hot new-new for 2023? Blackberry Gary—LA breeder Serge Cannabis’ cross of Gary Payton to Sunset Sherbert and Zkittlez Bx2. Blackberry Gary brings together the genetics behind blockbuster hits like Cereal Milk, Sherbert, and Z for a super-flavorful potent smoke. Serge grows small batches of Blackberry Gary at Cookies Maywood in LA and distributes them in Cookies stores and beyond. The extremely strong hybrid effect warrants sharing with a connoisseur while gaming on your new Playstation 5.
Georgia Pie has the same acronym as Gary Payton (G.P.) and elicits similar effects as the above strains, but with different parents. It’s Kush Mints x Gelatti from breeder Seed Junky Genetics and earns its name with a peach, apricot, and tree fruit taste. The hybrid effect hits uplifted, happy, and hungry, and also pairs well with eating, sleeping, and chilling. Georgia Pie x Z ounces from NorCalCannabis became our favorite buy from The Emerald Cup Harvest Ball.
And that’s our Leafly HighLight for January 2023. Hope they helped. Stay warm and cozy, Leafly Nation. We’ll see you on Feb. 1 with the annual Love Edition of Leafly HighLight. Rawwr.
Two more automated “spoke” supporting facilities have been opened as The Kroger Co. continues to build out its e-commerce network driven by Ocado Group technology.Cincinnati-based Kroger said Tuesday that a 40,000-square-foot spoke on Polk Avenue in Nashville, Tenn., and a nearly 80,000-square-foot spoke in Maywood, Ill., are now operational.

Two more automated “spoke” supporting facilities have been opened as The Kroger Co. continues to build out its e-commerce network driven by Ocado Group technology.
Cincinnati-based Kroger said Tuesday that a 40,000-square-foot spoke on Polk Avenue in Nashville, Tenn., and a nearly 80,000-square-foot spoke in Maywood, Ill., are now operational. The spokes serve as a last-mile cross-dock sites for online grocery delivery and help extend the reach of delivery service.
The Nashville spoke will work with Kroger 375,000-square-foot, Ocado-powered customer fulfillment center (CFC) in Forest Park, Ga., in the Atlanta area, increasing the Kroger Delivery network’s reach in greater Nashville to customers up to 200 miles from the CFC hub, which opened this past February.
Meanwhile, the bigger Maywood spoke will support the Ocado-automated CFC in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., a 340,000-square-foot facility that went live in late June. Kroger said
the new spoke will also provide the CFC a 200-mile service radius, enabling Kroger Delivery to reach customers in the Chicago metropolitan area.
“The continued expansion of the Kroger fulfillment network means improved access to fresh food for customers eager for the variety and value offered by Kroger that once could only be accessed through our stores,” Gabriel Arreaga, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer at Kroger, said in a statement. “This network enables Kroger to add scale, achieve reliability of experience, gain from the benefits of automation and ultimately widen our customer reach in current operating regions and new parts of the U.S.”
Overall, Kroger has announced 12 Ocado-automated spokes of 40,000 to 80,000 square feet, with nine now live. Besides the Nashville and Maywood locations, the operational spoke facilities are in Miami, Tampa and Jacksonville, Fla.; Lockbourne, Ohio; Indianapolis; Louisville, Ky.; and San Antonio. Other spokes are slated to open in Oklahoma City; Austin, Texas; and Birmingham, Ala.
In May 2018, Kroger unveiled an exclusive U.S. partnership with U.K.-based online grocery specialist Ocado to identify sites for about 20 automated CFCs over the ensuing three years. The high-tech CFCs use Ocado’s vertical integration, machine learning and robotics to fill e-grocery delivery orders and extend Kroger’s reach to a larger geographic footprint, including areas where it doesn’t operate brick-and-mortar stores.
So far, Kroger has announced 17 CFCs — ranging from 135,000 to 375,000 square feet — and six are now open. Kroger opened its first Ocado CFC, a 375,000-square-foot automated warehouse, or “shed,” in April 2021 in Monroe, Ohio. That was followed by 375,000-square-foot CFCs in Groveland, Fla., in June 2021 and in Forest Park, Ga., this past February and a 340,000-square-foot CFC in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., in June. Most recently, CFCs of 135,000 and 350,000 square feet went operational in Romulus, Mich., and Dallas, respectively. The Groveland locations marked the first CFC opening in a state where Kroger doesn’t have physical stores (except for one Harris Teeter store in Jacksonville, Fla.).
Upcoming Ocado CFCs, Kroger reported, include locations in Frederick, Md.; Phoenix; Charlotte, N.C.; Aurora, Colo.; the Cleveland region; the Pacific Northwest; and the Northeast. The retailer, too, has announced plans for two CFCs in Southern California and two more in Florida.
“Kroger Delivery promises an unparalleled shopping and delivery experience, making fresh just one click away at Kroger.com or the Kroger app,” according to Bill Bennett, vice president and head of e-commerce at Kroger. “From personalized digital offers to our white-glove delivery service, the Kroger seamless ecosystem saves time and money. Kroger Delivery orders are brought to customers in our branded delivery trucks and delivered to their doorstep by our trained and uniformed associates, all with ‘zero compromise’.”
Abstract Young adults (YA), age 18 to 39 years, are at a stage of life that may make them more vulnerable than older adults to impairments in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) during and after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT).

Young adults (YA), age 18 to 39 years, are at a stage of life that may make them more vulnerable than older adults to impairments in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) during and after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Health self-efficacy (HSE), the belief that one can implement strategies to produce a desired health outcome, has been associated with health outcomes in oncology research. Little is known about HRQOL or HSE in YA HCT survivors compared with older HCT survivors. Given the age-specific psychosocial challenges facing YA HCT recipients and research on non-transplant YA cancer survivors, we hypothesized that YA survivors would have worse post-HCT HRQOL compared with older adults, and that among YA HCT survivors, higher levels of HSE would be associated with higher levels of HRQOL and lower levels of cancer-related distress. This was a cross-sectional secondary analysis of 2 combined baseline datasets from multicenter studies of HCT survivors approached for participation in clinical trials of survivorship interventions. Participants from 20 transplantation centers in the United States were at 1 to 10 years post-HCT and age ≥18 years at the time of study enrollment, had no evidence of disease relapse/progression or subsequent malignancies, and could read English adequately to consent for and complete assessments. Medical record and patient-reported data were obtained for demographics and HCT-related clinical factors and complications (eg, total body irradiation, chronic graft-versus-host disease [cGVHD]). Participants completed surveys on HRQOL, including the Short-Form [SF]-12, HSE, and Cancer and Treatment Distress (CTXD), which includes 6 subscales and reports an overall mean score. On the SF-12, both the Mental Component Score (MCS) and Physical Component Score (PCS) were calculated. Two cohorts were compared: YAs (age 18 to 39 years at transplantation) and older adults (age ≥40 years at transplantation). Multiple linear regression analyses identified factors associated with HSE, PCS, MCS, and CTXD in YAs. In this analysis of 979 survivors, compared with the older adults, the YA participants had lower median mental health scores (SF-12 MCS: 48.40 versus 50.23; P = .04) and higher cancer-related distress (CTXD: .96 versus .85; P = .04), but better physical health (SF-12 PCS: 48.99 versus 47.18; P = .049). Greater overall cancer-related distress was driven by higher levels of uncertainty, financial concern, and medical demand subscales for YAs compared with older adults. Young adults also had lower HSE (2.93 versus 3.08; P = .0004). In a multivariate model, HSE was strongly associated with age group (P = .0005) after adjusting for multiple other transplantation-related factors. Among YAs, HSE was associated with the SF-12 MCS and PCS and the CTXD, and HSE remained significant after adjusting for other transplantation-related factors. Overall, the YA HCT survivors had lower mental health, increased cancer-related distress, and lower levels of HSE compared with the older adults. Although the direction of these effects cannot be determined with these data, the strong association between HSE and HRQOL among YAs suggests that targeting interventions to improve HSE may have broad impact on health outcomes.

The stretch of Roosevelt Road between 1st Avenue in Maywood and 25th Avenue in Broadview, and the surrounding commercial area within blocks from it, are busy with new development projects that are likely to bring with them new jobs.
The Broadview Minuteman gas station that’s inside of the old GoLo gas station at 2319 Roosevelt Rd. opened earlier this year, bringing with it full-time and part-time cashier positions at $15 to $16 an hour.
Minuteman is one of the newest gas stations to open in or near the Roosevelt Road commercial corridor. The Mart Express gas station at 1811 S. 17th Ave., about half-a-mile north of Roosevelt Road, also opened earlier this year.
David Upshaw, Broadview’s building commissioner, said in July that the village has a total of three gas stations. The village board recently approved creating a Class K liquor license classification that’s required for gas stations seeking to offer video gaming.
“In order to have video gaming, you have to have a liquor license,” Upshaw said at the July 18 meeting where the ordinance was approved.
He said the ordinance only creates one license, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Two more gas stations are under development in or near Roosevelt, including the vacant Falcon Fuel at 201 W. Roosevelt in Maywood that developers are planning to turn into a Shell and a soon-to-be QuickTrip convenience fueling station on the 1000 block of 25th Avenue in Bellwood.
The Quick Trip, which is across the street from Thornton’s gas station in Bellwood and a half-mile down from Roosevelt Road, is currently under construction. In 2021, Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey said the new establishment could bring with it between 25 and 35 jobs.

Two new event spaces are also poised to open on Roosevelt Road. The View 1701 restaurant and event space at 1701 Roosevelt Road in Broadview could open by October, its owners announced on the establishment’s website.
According to The View’s Facebook page, the establishment will offer dining, gaming, live music and event space that includes a rooftop area. The cuisine will be “an eclectic mix of southern fusion and comfort food,” according to the Facebook page.
Large signs in the establishment’s windows announced that the owners are hiring for all positions ranging from server, bartender and event planner to sous check, executive chef and general manager, among others.
Upshaw noted in his July department report that the Red Door Meeting Place, an event venue inside the old Betty Jo’s Christian Bookstore at 1519-21 W. Roosevelt Rd., is “near completion.”
The venue has been in development since at least 2019, when the village board entered into a redevelopment agreement with the venue’s owners.
During a meeting in July 2019, the developers told village board members that the space would be an “urban chic meeting hall venue” that would feature office space and flexible floor space for accommodating weddings, bridal showers, anniversaries, graduations, corporate meetings and other events.
Across the street from Red Door, developers are working to turn the old Fifth Third Bank, which closed in 2020, into a Laundry World laundromat. The company has about 16 locations in Chicago, the suburbs and Florida, according to its website.
Several blocks west, work is underway to convert a building at 2100 Roosevelt Road in Broadview that once houses a Seaway Bank and State Farm insurance office into a facility owned by Safety Controls Technology — an Ohio-based workplace safety consulting firm.
Meanwhile, the Slice Factory will soon open its newest location inside an old White Castle at 211 W. Roosevelt Road in Maywood. Signage outside the site announced that the company is currently hiring. According to its website, Slice Factory has 13 locations, including stores in Bellwood and Melrose Park.
