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 Miami Gardens, 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 Miami Gardens, 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:

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – A South Florida city is taking the plunge into a whole new digital world.
Local 10 News has told you about companies allowing employees to interact through the metaverse. Now, it’s an entire city’s turn to go virtual.
That city is Miami Gardens.
“We wanted to create something that was beyond belief,” Miami Gardens Mayor Rodney Harris said. “We wanted to experience a different type of world but make access to the city a little bit easier for our residents.”
Miami Gardens’ metaverse is believed to be the first of its kind for a South Florida city.
It’s crafted in partnership with South Florida marketing and advertising firm The Mosaic Group and streaming platform Ceek Metaverse, which allows users to move through virtual worlds.
“So this was an opportunity to bring a new idea of innovation, technology that Miami Gardens is not just going to talk about being in tech, we’re going to be in tech,” Mosaic Group CEO Ann Marie Sorrell said. “So that’s how this whole Metaverse was tied into the campaign: ‘It’s where you want to be.’”
That’s the statement behind the platform and the city as a whole.
Whether you’re traveling in-person or on a couch at home, the idea is to provide an avenue for information and interaction.
Getting in is simple enough: First, download the “Ceek VR” app and create an account. Then, go to “Miami Gardens” under the “venues” tab, choose your viewing mode (2D or a 360-degree view), then, finally, you’re transported into a video game-like recreation of the city, where you can arrive any any location, turn around and interact with familiar landmarks.
Those include Andover Park, City Hall, Calder Casino and Hard Rock Stadium.
“We’re an innovative city. We dream big. We’re not holding ourselves back,” Harris said. “We would love to be the pioneers to find out if this thing could actually work.”
From the recent hosting of Formula One, to Super Bowls, college football championships and the Miami Open, Miami Gardens sees itself as a global city, reinforcing the belief that this can work and is a natural next step into the digital space.
There’s also the belief that the metaverse can be a driving force for inspiration.
Harris argues that if people can experience the next generation of technology, imagine what they can build.
“Why not have the vision for a futuristic type of access to the city that everybody can access from here?” he asked. “In America, to Europe, to all over Asia, to wherever. You can access what’s going on in Miami Gardens in the metaverse.”
Sorrell describes the metaverse as a “different perspective.”
“This is not just playing (a) game,” she said. “It’s really exploring and discovering where you live in a different experience.”
Moving forward, the goal is to continue tweaking and improving on the technology in phases, making it as immersive as possible.
That includes connecting with businesses and restaurants who want to make offerings in the metaverse, plus establishing a virtual presence for things like concerts or sporting events, so, if you can’t attend in person, perhaps you could do so in the virtual world.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. ( Nov. 17, 2022) – Seventy-nine minutes into Florida National’s opening round match of the NAIA Tournament, the Conquistadors found themselves tied 0-0 against the Running Eagles of Life University. With all signs pointing towards overtime or a potential penalty shootout, what followed was an onslaught of goals on both sides solidifying a 4-2 FNU victory and a berth to the second-round match Saturday against No. 7 St. Thomas University.
In the first half, both teams played the majority of their contest in the middle of the field. FNU only had three shots in the first half while life had gotten off ten toward goalkeeper Victor Ruiz. The Conquistador’s goalkeeper collected five saves in the contest as both teams retired the half scoreless. With a new period of 45 minutes in the works, FNU finally had a breakthrough on a beautiful header from Matias Leaniz at the 79-minute mark on a cross from the right side of the pitch by Marcos Bakale. Leaniz’s goal opened the floodgates as he scored another goal to make it 2-0 just three minutes later. Striker Fransisco Crimi saw his chance to close the door on the running eagles with a goal of his own with six minutes left to play.
Despite being down 3-0, the Running Eagles were not going away as Luciano Diaz connected on the running eagles’ first goal of the match and quickly ran to the midfield to get play underway as soon as possible. Artur Palmeira managed to put more daylight between FNU and Life with a stellar strike that went right over the head of goalkeeper Luka Zakarija. A penalty kick by Life’s Bart Kooistra after a foul by FNU in the area gave the Running Eagles a much-needed second goal for the contest, but it was not enough to get past the Conquistadors.
Florida National ended the match with four corner kicks and 13 shots. Life led the Conquistadors in both categories with 18 shots and seven corner kicks.
Up Next: The Conquistadors will take on No. 7 St. Thomas in the second round of the NAIA Nationals Tournament Saturday at noon.

Miami Gardens, FL – The Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears teamed up to host its first joint watch party and fan event at the Hard Rock Café in Barcelona, Spain, on Sunday, Nov. 6.
Joined by Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President of Alumni Relations and Alumnus Nat Moore and Chicago Bears Alumnus Shaun Gayle, local fans had the opportunity to engage with members of the team as they signed autographs, participated in a Q&A session and watched the live Dolphins vs. Bears game-day broadcast. The event was free and open to the public welcoming sports fans of all ages to connect with the visiting teams.
"We are excited to participate and collaborate on this global initiative with the Chicago Bears and the NFL to develop personal connections with our worldwide fans on the ground and in their communities," said Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jeremy Walls. "The Miami Dolphins have invested in year-round programming with partners and fan clubs around the world to grow our brand internationally and we look forward to creating more opportunities of engagement with our fans in Spain, United Kingdom and Brazil."
"Bringing Chicago Bears football to the people of Spain is an incredible opportunity for our club," Chicago Bears Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications Scott Hagel said. "We see many parallels with the passionate sports culture that exists in Spain just as we have in the city of Chicago. It is important for us to be a part of the Spanish community and Sunday's watch party was our first chance to engage in-person. We look forward to doing even more in the coming months and cultivating an authentic relationship with a new audience."
While in Barcelona, Moore also attended the FC Barcelona match on Saturday, Nov. 5, where he participated in a jersey swap and joined the pre-game show in an effort to build relationships with the city's existing fan base.
As the first NFL event of its kind to take place in Spain, these efforts are in continuation of the NFL's International Home Marketing Area (IHMA) initiative in which awarded clubs were granted access to international territories for marketing, fan engagement and commercialization. The Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears are the only NFL teams to have received international marketing rights in Spain as part of an important, long-term, strategic effort to enable clubs to build their global brands while driving NFL fan growth internationally.
"The International Home Marketing Area program enables NFL teams to connect with international markets to build brand awareness and drive fandom," said NFL Head of Europe & UK Brett Gosper. "This unique collaboration between the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears in Spain is an exciting one and a perfect example of the opportunity the IHMA program was designed for which is to bring our international fans closer to the NFL and help grow the game globally."
As part of the IHMA program, clubs have access to international markets for at least a five-year term, during which selected clubs have rights to pursue activities in international market that are consistent with what they can do in their domestic HMA. This includes in-person and digital marketing, corporate sponsorship sales, fan events and activations, merchandise sales and co-marketing relationships with other sports and entertainment properties in the market.
After trading most of their 2022 draft capital for wide receiver Tyreek Hill, the Dolphins weren’t expected to have significant contributions from their rookie class.

After trading most of their 2022 draft capital for wide receiver Tyreek Hill, the Dolphins weren’t expected to have significant contributions from their rookie class. However, the team has called on multiple first-year players in the first half of the season.
Entering the bye week, the Dolphins have six rookies on their 53-man roster. One, cornerback Kader Kohou, has been a starter for most of the season. Another, quarterback Skylar Thompson, made one start after injuries to Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater. And a third, safety Verone McKinley III, has seen his role increase in wake of the season-ending injury to Brandon Jones.
Here’s a look at where each Dolphins rookie stands and how he might be able to contribute to a playoff push in the remaining eight games.
? 2022 stats: Nine games played, two tackles
? Skinny: The third-round pick out of Georgia and the Dolphins’ first selection in the 2022 Draft has played just nine defensive snaps this season. Five of those snaps came in the Week 9 win against the Chicago Bears; he was primarily used as a spy for quarterback Justin Fields.
? Future role: Inside linebackers coach Anthony Campanile has spoken positively about Tindall’s growth, but the Dolphins have multiple veterans who they trust more than the rookie as of now. A rematch against the Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen, as well as potential playoff matchups against the Baltimore Ravens or Kansas City Chiefs, could see Tindall return to the field in his spy role.
? Skinny: The fourth-round pick was a training camp standout but has been a healthy scratch for each game. Wide receivers coach Wes Welker said that after Ezukanma spent the summer at the Z receiver position, the team has asked him to learn the F position; Welker cited it as the reason undrafted rookie Braylon Sanders was elevated for the Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions and filled in for an injured River Cracraft.
? Future role: Barring an injury to Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle, Ezukanma doesn’t appear to have a clear avenue to the field in Year 1. The Dolphins have gotten good contributions from Cracraft and Trent Sherfield in the slot, while Cedrick Wilson Jr. has gotten more involved in recent weeks.
? Skinny: The seventh-round pick has spent the season on the practice squad.
? Future role: Barring injury, it will be tough for the rookie to crack the team’s outside linebacker rotation this season.
? 2022 stats: Three games played (one start), 57.4 completion percentage, 272 passing yards, one interception, 9 rushing yards
? Skinny: The seventh-round pick made the team’s 53-man roster as a third quarterback and was elevated to the backup quarterback role when Tua Tagovailoa sustained a concussion. He made his first NFL start in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings after Bridgewater was placed in concussion protocol but sustained a right thumb injury.
? Future role: Barring injury, Thompson will continue as the No. 3 role, but he has shown potential to be the team’s backup quarterback next season.
? 2022 stats: Eight games played (six starts), 39 tackles, five pass breakups, one forced fumble
? Skinny: Kohou has been one of the best stories of the Dolphins’ season, an undrafted rookie from formerly Division II Texas A&M Commerce who quickly earned a starting role. With Nik Needham out for the season because of a torn Achilles and the return of Byron Jones from the PUP list still uncertain, Kohou has assumed the boundary role opposite Xavien Howard. Despite his youth, he has been reliable in coverage and a willing tackler in space.
? Future role: Kohou is expected to keep his starting role for the remainder of the season. Even if Jones is able to return, Kohou could slide into the nickel role, once again giving the Dolphins a strong trio of cornerbacks.
? 2022 stats: Nine games played, zero receptions (three targets)
? Skinny: Conner made the team as an undrafted rookie and has primarily contributed on special teams while logging 23 snaps on offense.
? Future role: The Dolphins like Conner’s potential, but he’s currently stuck behind Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and fullback Alec Ingold, who the team uses like a tight end.
? 2022 stats: Three games played (one start), seven tackles
? Skinny: The undrafted rookie spent the first half of the season on the practice squad, being elevated three times and making one start against the Lions. The Dolphins signed him to the 53-man roster ahead of the Week 10 win over the Cleveland Browns, where he continued to play as a deep safety in a part-time role.
? Future role: The Dolphins have utilized multiple safeties to make up for the loss of Brandon Jones, who tore his ACL in Week 7. Coordinator Josh Boyer likes McKinley’s coverage skills and with some prolific passing offenses remaining on the second-half schedule, McKinley could be a big part of the defensive game plan.
? 2022 stats: One game played, two receptions, 17 yards
? Skinny: Sanders, an undrafted rookie, was elevated for the Lions game after Cracraft was ruled out. He lost a fumble on his first career catch but rebounded and caught another pass in his NFL debut.
? Future role: Welker said that Sanders has been spending more time learning the F position. The Dolphins have good depth at wide receiver but he could be a candidate to be called up to the active roster again in case of an injury to the team’s top slot receivers.
? Skinny: The undrafted rookie hasn’t been elevated for any games this season.
? Future role: Barring another rash of injuries at corner, Barnes isn’t expected to be elevated to the active roster.
? Skinny: The undrafted rookie hasn’t been elevated for any games this season.
? Future role: The Dolphins’ offensive line has been one of the most positive developments this season. Barring several injuries, Empey isn’t expected to be elevated to the active roster.
? Skinny: The son of late Dolphins defensive back Calvin Jackson signed to the team’s practice squad in late October.
? Future role: The Dolphins have good depth at wide receiver but Jackson has played in a similar scheme with the New York Jets and came to Miami with knowledge of the playbook.
