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 North Lauderdale, 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 North Lauderdale, 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:

NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Broward County was hit hard with two major rain events this year.
“I need my roof to get replaced,” said North Lauderdale homeowner Andy Beepat. “The roof is 21 years old and I am having an issue with the flat part of my roof. The deck, it is starting to show signs of leaking. Inside the house, I see one or two drops when the rain falls heavily and that is one of the reasons why my insurance company said I need to reseal it.”
Just north of some of the county’s most impacted areas is the city of North Lauderdale.
While city leaders were relieved the majority of their residents didn’t suffer serious damage, they did witness the importance of helping homeowners fortify their homes from the impact of storms.
That is when they got an idea.
The city still had pandemic-area American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal funds and learned the money could be used in the form of grants to help harden homes.
City Manager Michael Sargis said if each homeowner received the full $30,000, the city expects they could assist 200 homeowners. But he added with some homeowners who perhaps needed less than $30,000, depending on the size of the project, they are hoping the program can help more than 200 homeowners.
A U.S. Treasury official told Local 10 News Thursday that recipients of American Rescue Plan’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds may use the funds to provide “emergency relief from natural disasters or the negative economic effects of natural disasters, including but not limited to, mitigation activities to lessen or avert the threat of a natural disaster and its potential physical or negative economic impacts.”
“It would be great for us,” said Beepat. “I really appreciate the city would offer the residents this type of program for those who cannot afford this major work on their house. They have an opportunity once they reach the requirements that they are asking, to get the work done. It is a great program.”
Added Sargis: “It is a great opportunity for the residents. North Lauderdale is a working-class community, so this is an opportunity that a lot of our folks may not have otherwise, and when a storm comes, we do everything we can to make sure they are kept safe, but these new roofs and these new windows will just guarantee that they will be able to survive a storm. We are on the lower side of average household income in the county, we are pretty much a working-class, middle to lower-middle, working-class community. We have a lot of youth in the city, so we are a very young community, a lot of starter homes that are single families, so being able to offer these type of programs is really something a lot of the residents wouldn’t be able to do without this help.”
FIRST OF ITS KIND
“We are very proud of saying this is a first of its kind, probably not only in Broward County, but in the State of Florida,” said Sargis. “Our mayor and commission are not afraid to try different things that benefit our residents and this is a true example of that.”
ADVICE FOR OTHER MUNICIPALITIES
“Don’t be afraid to think outside the box,” said Sargis. “North Lauderdale is a very unique community. We are mostly a residential community and have hard-working folks who live here, and being able to do this program for them is a benefit for them and for the city. It is less homes that we need to worry about and less homes we need to worry about bringing FEMA into help, so my best advice is, don’t be afraid to think outside the box.”
REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY
“We are ready to roll,” said Sargis. “The home has to be owner-occupied, your 2022 taxes have to be current, you have no code violations, and if you have a mortgage, you have to have insurance, and those are the requirements.”
HOW TO APPLY
“You can apply online,” said Sargis. “Or you can come to City Hall, starting Dec. 4 at 10 a.m., and there will be staff here to help you register, and then once you are registered, you will get a return email back that your application has been received and reviewed.”

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER APPLYING?
“After that process, there will be an evaluator who will go out and evaluate the home to make sure what you are asking for you truly need,” Sargis said. “And once that is done, the next step will be to have contractors go out, look at the home, submit quotes to the city. The city then contracts with those folks and the city pays that bill. So all you basically need to do is be home and open the door, so the contractor can come in and do the work they need to do.”

Federal Capital Partners has expanded its portfolio of multifamily properties in the Florida with its purchase of Avana Cypress Creek Apartments, a nine-building 220-unit luxury apartment community located in North Lauderdale.
FCP acquired the property from Eaton Vance Investment Managers, according to Yardi Matrix data. The buyer will assume payment of an existing $29.9 million Fannie Mae-backed loan.
Robert Given and Zachary Sackley, vice chairmen of CBRE’s Florida-centered Capital Markets Group, represented the seller in the transaction.
Avana Cypress Creek was built in 2009. Eaton Vance purchased the property from Greystar in 2019 for $54.9 million, according to Yardi Matrix data. At the time of that acquisition, the prior owner was undertaking renovations to the community’s unit interiors, including new flooring and tile arrangements, as well as the installation of Nest thermostats. Greystar Management is the property’s manager.
Avana Cypress creek is sectioned into one, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 1,073 square feet, with an average rent of $2,539 per unit, according to Yardi Matrix data. The renovated homes include kitchens with wooden cabinets and soft closing cupboards and drawers, as well as stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and track lighting. Additionally, the units offer walk-in closets, with select homes featuring private entryways and attached garages.
Across the 10-acre community, residents have access to a 4,000-square-foot clubhouse located adjacent to a swimming pool with cabanas, in addition to an outdoor lounge and entertainment area, a media room, service bar, cyber café and business center. The property’s outdoor areas includes landscaped green spaces.
Situated in the Miami metro, Avana Cypress Creek Apartments offers direct access to State Route 7, offering highway access to downtown Miami, which is 30 miles to the south. The community is seven miles from the center of Fort Lauderdale, with quick access to the city’s dining, retail, entertainment and cultural offerings.
The purchase of Avana Cypress Creek grows FCP’s multifamily assets around Broward County to 6,000 units.
Over the past year, the firm has made several investments in the Southeast, which is home to many of the nation’s fastest-growing metro areas. The firm bought Amber Grove at Olley Creek Apartments, a 360-unit community located outside Atlanta, in a sale worth $51 million. In November of 2022, the firm acquired 158 acres for the development of The Exchange at Indian Land Apartments, a planned mixed-use property that will include 400 multifamily units and 35,000 square feet of retail space in Indian Land, S.C.
FCP bought a North Lauderdale apartment complex for $53.1 million, amid an uptick in South Florida multifamily investment sales.Boston-based Eaton Vance, an investment management firm owned by Morgan Stanley, sold the 220-unit Avana Cypress Creek Apartments at 1700 South State Road 7, according to records and real estate database Vizzda.

FCP bought a North Lauderdale apartment complex for $53.1 million, amid an uptick in South Florida multifamily investment sales.
Boston-based Eaton Vance, an investment management firm owned by Morgan Stanley, sold the 220-unit Avana Cypress Creek Apartments at 1700 South State Road 7, according to records and real estate database Vizzda. FCP assumed the seller’s $29.9 million Fannie Mae loan on the property.
The purchase breaks down to nearly $242,000 per apartment.
Robert Given and Zachary Sackley of CBRE represented the seller.
Completed in 2009, Avana Cypress Creek consists of 10 one-story and three-story buildings on 10 acres, records and Vizzda show. Eaton Vance bought the property in 2019 for $46 million.
Chevy Chase, Maryland-based FCP, which is short for Federal Capital Partners, is a private real estate investment firm that has invested in or financed more than $12.4 billion in assets since it was founded in 1999, according to its website. It’s led by Esko Korhonen, Lacy Rice and Alex Marshall.
Records show FCP bought the property through an affiliate of its Fund V. FCP closed the $1.2 billion fund in 2021 and started targeting multifamily and commercial real estate, according to a news release issued at the time of the fund’s closing.
South Florida’s multifamily market experienced a slowdown in investment sales late last year and early this year because of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hikes. Expensive financing created bid-ask gaps, ending the apartment sale frenzy of 2021 and 2022.
But this summer, properties started trading again.
The buyers that are able to enter the market now are firms that will need less debt to finance purchases, namely firms that have already raised equity funds, Newmark’s Hampton Beebe said.
“They have discretionary equity… that they need to put out,” he said.
Other firms that would need more debt to finance purchases are now largely gone from the market, leading to less competition for apartments and pushing down prices.
“If you look at pricing from, call it the first quarter of 2022, we are probably 25 to 30 percent off peak pricing,” Beebe said.
Among the players left: Harbor Group International, which paid $105.5 million for the Locklyn West Palm apartment complex at 3590 Village Boulevard in West Palm Beach in June. Also,
Waterton bought the pair of One Plantation rental buildings at 1600-1700 Southwest 78th Avenue in Plantation for $88.4 million in June.
North Lauderdale hadn’t experienced the recent multifamily investment sales action until now. Prior to FCP’s purchase, the city’s most recent known deal was American Landmark Apartments purchase of The Asher complex at 1949 Cove Lake Road for $60.5 million last August.
NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - After an SUV crashed into a pool at a South Florida home, a Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective rushed to save two people that were trapped inside. Now that detective is speaking out....
NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - After an SUV crashed into a pool at a South Florida home, a Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective rushed to save two people that were trapped inside. Now that detective is speaking out.
When the SUV plunged into the home’s pool, several people rushed to the scene on a busy corner.
The incident happened at the intersection of Southgate Boulevard and Rock Island Road, Friday night.
Due to the crash, a fence was taken down.
Natasha Duran then sprang into action.
“I was on my way to pick up my daughter,” Duran said.
Duran, who was off-duty, had to wait to pick up her daughter after she finished work because she noticed the roof of the car sticking out of the pool.
“I stepped out the car, I ran towards the backyard, into the pool and I saw the little hand sticking out of the car,” she said.
The homeowner, William Marts, told 7News on Friday that there was a young girl in the back seat of the submerged car.
“She went in, grabbed the little girl, passed her around to us,” Marts said. “Then I went around the other side and went after dad.”
According to deputies, the driver was unresponsive, but Detective Duran rushed to the rescue.
“I was able to go through the window and unbuckle his seat belt because the car started to fill up with water,” Duran said.
Fortunately for Duran, the driver and others who tried to help, the SUV didn’t fully submerge because Marts is an avid fan of pool volleyball.
He made his pool 4-feet deep all the way across.
“Shallow end. Deep end. Volleyball,” Marts said. “The people in the shallow end, would kill the people in the deep end.”
The 4-feet of depth across his pool served a better purpose on Friday because it helped save the people in that car, while Detective Duran served to make life saving efforts.
“We’re here, we’re always going to be here, and we’re always gonna help, no matter if we’re working or if we just got off of work,” she said.
Both of the people in the car were sent to the hospital with minor injuries and are expected to be OK.
Duran said she couldn’t have done it without the help of the bystanders and thanked them.
