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 Miami, 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 Miami, 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 MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Officials are investigating a large fire that broke out inside an apartment building Sunday night in North Miami Beach, forcing dozens of families to evacuate.
The fire occurred shortly after 8 p.m. at the Suncoast Place Apartments, located at 999 NE 167th St.
“Ten to 15 minutes after we left the house, the fire started,” Chandan Chowdhury told Local 10 News Monday. “Somebody called me (and said) the fire had started from my house.”
Chowdhury lives in the apartment with his wife and their 17-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter.
“The fire started from the AC unit,” he said. “I was on the way to Orlando for a family vacation.”
The family’s vacation wasn’t the only thing ruined, as the majority of their apartment unit was destroyed in the fire.
But Chowdhury says he is grateful they were not home and are alive.
“Thank God we are not in the house,” he said.
Many people say they heard the alarms and saw smoke filling up the hallways after the fire broke out.
“I was in the shower, I was washing my hair, I was hearing banging on the doors,” one tenant told Local 10 News. “I didn’t think much of it until my family screamed and said something so I had to get out. As we were getting out, that’s when we could smell all the smoke.”
People of all ages, including families with children, sat and watched as firefighters went in and out of the building to put the fire out.
“I was in the house with my mom. (I) rushed her out the door, we saw smoke and came out here and we’ve been outside ever since,” one resident said.
Several people were loaded onto stretchers so they could get checked by paramedics.
The official cause of the fire remains under investigation.
“I don’t have any idea what I should do,” Chowdhury said. “I don’t know the next steps.”

North Miami and Aventura are in the midst of a multi-billion-dollar transformation, featuring new housing developments, schools, retail, transit and more.North Miami has seen a more than 400% increase in residential units from 2019 to 2022, with more on the way, plus seven new schools and a boost to its local commerce.

North Miami and Aventura are in the midst of a multi-billion-dollar transformation, featuring new housing developments, schools, retail, transit and more.
North Miami has seen a more than 400% increase in residential units from 2019 to 2022, with more on the way, plus seven new schools and a boost to its local commerce. Nearly 20% of the area’s nearly 2,300 businesses opened since the start of 2022.
“The boom in North Miami can be attributed to a few factors: meeting community needs for a growing population, building for the future and providing tailored and accessible lifestyle opportunities for native and incoming residents,” said Aly-Khan Merali, president and CFO of Turnberry Associates.
The same is true just north in Aventura, where the median single-family home price jumped 25% from $990,000 in 2022 to $1.237 million in the first quarter of 2023, according to a market report from ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
Aventura’s population has steadily increased since 1990, when it was about 15,000. It grew to 25,000 by 2000, 35,000 in 2010, and today roughly 40,000 people call Aventura home. North Miami’s population jumped from about 50,000 to nearly 60,000 during the 1990s, and it has remained steady since then.
Now, developers are working to capitalize on the region’s growth with a series of housing developments new to the market, in construction or in the planning stages.
One of the largest is the 184-acre SoLé Mia community, led by Jackie Soffer’s Turnberry Development and Richard LeFrak’s LeFrak Organization. The developers have plans for thousands of residential units, 1.5 million square feet of retail and commercial space and a 10-acre University of Miami UHealth Medical Center, scheduled to open in 2025. The residential offerings will include the 33-story ONE Park Tower by Turnberry overlooking South Florida’s first seven-acre swimmable lagoon.
“Turnberry has always been at the forefront of neighborhood creation, and the 184-acre, master-planned SoLé Mia is a perfect example,” Merali said. “The property is a first-of-its-kind neighborhood with everything you need at your fingertips — restaurants, retail, convenience and community living with dozens of acres of active and passive green spaces — and it’s drawing buyers to the area.”
Other North Miami developments in the works include:
Aventura is witnessing a wave of building and infrastructure improvements as well. The projects will upgrade Aventura Mall, add the new Brightline train station, bring on a new Hyatt House Hotel and introduce several new restaurants, retai shops and luxury residences.
Some residents there have expressed concerns about proposed changes to the land development regulations in the city’s master plan. They cite the potential for increased traffic and an influx of high-rise buildings along the beach. Last month, a change.org petition launched seeking to “stop excessive development in Aventura,” and it has collected more than 1,400 signatures.
How that might affect the future of development in the area is still unclear, but there’s no denying Aventura and North Miami are booming with new residential buildings.
“North Miami is in close proximity to the best South Florida has to offer — shopping at Aventura Mall, great dining, top schools and universities, parks, major airports, medical institutions, Brightline access and more,” Merali said. “The area is being recognized by buyers for its existing convenient offerings, and developers are creating projects to accompany and enhance that.”
Engel & Völkers Florida is expanding further into the southeast Florida market with the addition of two new Miami-area brokerage shops.
Local broker Daniel Nault will convert his previously unaffiliated brokerage, Edgewater One Real Estate, to an Engel & Völkers shop, retrofitting his existing office in The Grand Retail Center at DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay in the Engel & Völkers style. A grand re-opening event is scheduled for late September, with plans for a second location in Miami Beach in 2024. Both shops will collectively be known as Engel & Völkers Miami.
“We are thrilled to join the Engel & Völkers network and expand our business with a global reach that will benefit our clients,” Nault said in a press release. “The ability to further develop a luxury brand like Engel & Völkers in South Florida, specifically Miami and South Beach, is an exciting opportunity. We believe that the brand’s worldwide recognition and trajectory, combined with its diverse and international clientele, make it the perfect fit for our brokerage.”
Nault and his business partner, Vanessa Gomez, bring over 30 years of industry experience to their business venture with Engel & Völkers. Gomez will continue to lead the agents from Edgewater One Real Estate in their transition as director of luxury sales and new developments for Engel & Völkers Miami.
“Although Edgewater One Real Estate had established a strong local presence, we faced challenges with larger brands in terms of recognition and access to additional tools and support,” said Gomez. “By joining Engel & Völkers, we gain access to a broader network and support system that will help us overcome these obstacles and provide enhanced services to our clients.”
“We are thrilled to have Edgewater One Real Estate convert to our global brand,” said Engel & Völkers Florida CEO Peter Giese. “As we continue to expand our presence in Florida, it was critical to find a partner in Miami that embraced our brand and immediately added credibility to us in the local market. Daniel and his team, with their development history, meet all of those criteria.”

A firm led by Elvis Dumervil, a former Pro Bowl NFL player turned real estate developer, wants to redevelop an old apartment complex in North Miami Beach into a 15-story mixed-use project.
The city’s Planning and Zoning Board will consider plans for Prestige Boardwalk on the 2.28-acre site at 16651 N.E. 18th Ave. on the evening of July 10. The site currently has 94 apartments that were built between 1957 and 1961.
Prestige Boardwalk LLC, managed by Dumervil of North Miami-based Prestige Estates, acquired the property for $9.5 million in 2018.
The existing apartment complex would be replaced with 409 apartments, 11,151 square feet of retail and a 642-space parking garage, including 126 spaces for electric vehicle charging, in two towers. There would be a pool/amenity deck on the eighth floor, plus pedestrian bridges connecting the two buildings on both the second and eighth floors. There would also be a boardwalk along the neighboring Snake Creek Canal.
The apartments would range from 578 to 1,316 square feet. There would be 34 studio apartments, 167 one-bedroom units, 151 two-bedroom units, and 57 three-bedroom units.
According to the developer’s traffic study, the project would generate 2,527 daily vehicle trips.
Miami-based attorney Pedro Gassant couldn’t be reached for comment regarding his client. Zyscovich Architects in Miami designed Prestige Boardwalk.
“The architectural design provides visibility to the street from all its sides, which will allow the future residents to take advantage of the surrounding environment and city and canal views,” the developer stated in the application. “In addition, the design contemplates a boardwalk along the Snake Creek Canal to promote pedestrian activity and provide the site with a lush and refreshing landscape design.”
Dumervil started Prestige Estates after a career in the NFL. A linebacker, he played for the Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers and made five Pro Bowls. Prestige Estates has purchased hundreds of apartments in the North Miami area where Dumervil grew up.
Dumervil’s Prestige Cityview has pending applications to build over 1,000 apartments on the site that straddles the city of North Miami and unincorporated Miami-Dade County.

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – North Miami Beach Commissioner Michael Joseph was reinstated into office Tuesday afternoon after a judge reversed his removal by fellow commissioners last month.
According to court records, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Peter Lopez issued a written order that said the city commission failed to have the necessary five-member quorum when it voted 3-1 to remove Joseph.
Several North Miami Beach commissioners voted to vacate Joseph’s seat in May because they say he violated the city charter after missing countless commission meetings within a 120-day period.
City representatives said they were not able to conduct business for months because of Joseph’s absence, along with a few other commissioners who were not appearing at commission meetings.
On Tuesday, Lopez also found that the commission did not have the authority to remove a commissioner from office and that Joseph had not violated the 120-day rule for absentees in the city charter.
Joseph’s attorney Ben Brodsky asked a judge to reinstate him after he recorded that Joseph had only missed 91 days, which was 29 days below the requirement of meetings that could be missed without removal.
The city is now enjoined from holding a special election to replace Joseph, pending the disposition of the case. Lopez’s order claims that Joseph is likely to prevail once the suit is settled.
“From an administrative standpoint, city business continues to move forward and we’ll follow the judge’s order,” said North Miami Beach City Manager Mario Diaz, “The commissioner’s treated as an active commissioner. He’ll have any access that he deems necessary to be able to participate and make any decisions on the dais.”
“We’re preparing as if everybody will be present for the commission, and having all the items ready for them,” Diaz added.
Joseph sent a statement to Local 10 News on Wednesday afternoon saying in part, “I was elected to tackle public corruption after the last arrest of a sitting mayor. Reform comes slowly, but as long as we persist it will come. We are all in this together,”
The judge’s ruling also enjoins the special election that would’ve been held to fill Joseph’s vacant seat.
Joseph also called the judge’s ruling “vindication” and says he plans to be at the next commission meeting scheduled for June 20, as the city will look to hold an election to fill former North Miami Beach Mayor Anthony DeFillipo’s seat.
DeFillipo was arrested May 31 on illegal voting charges after authorities accused him of voting three times from a North Miami Beach address he didn’t live at.

BH Group can move forward with plans for a 400-unit apartment tower in North Miami Beach.
The North Miami Beach City Commission on Thursday voted 5-0 to approve a site plan for the 32-story building that will also have 1,825 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 587-space parking garage, city records show.
The city commission also granted 10 variances for the project that reduce portions of the proposed building’s setbacks and allow for a decorative covering on the facade of the parking garage.
Isaac Toledano declined comment about BH Group’s plans to break ground and the estimated construction cost of the project.
Multifamily development is booming in North Miami Beach. In December, a joint venture between New York-based Hidrock Properties and Argentine developer Grupo Portland unveiled plans for a 20-story rental tower at 1700 Northeast 164th Street. The partnership is contemplating that the project will entail between 375 to 400 apartments, ground-floor retail and parking.
Between December of 2021 and August of last year, developers spent more than $130 million combined for development sites in North Miami Beach. Builders are planning about a dozen projects that could add 2,600 apartments and 254 condos in the city, according to an analysis by The Real Deal.
Meanwhile, BH Group is in the midst of a development spree. Last month, BH and partner Related Group acquired a former AT&T office site in Plantation for $13 million. The joint venture plans to redevelop the nearly 14-acre site, which is approved for a project with 375 apartments in three buildings, and 108,000 square feet of mostly office space with some retail in a fourth building. Related and BH submitted a proposed site plan revision to the city of Plantation that would allow more than 400 units.
The two firms are also involved in other South Florida projects, including Icon Aventura, a planned 26-story tower with 308 apartments, and a planned two-tower condominium and condo-hotel project adjacent to the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood.
