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 Palm Beach 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 Palm Beach 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:

PALM BEACH GARDENS – A gym with unusual features including a treadmill-lined movie theater and hula dance classes is set to open at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens.
The gym is poised to take over a 30,140-square-foot space that formerly housed Best Buy and sits just across the parking lot from apartments at the center. Best Buy moved to another space in the shopping plaza.
It would be the second EoS Fitness in Palm Beach County, with its other location off State Road 7 in suburban Boca Raton, and the 10th location in Florida. Pure Barre, which offers workouts using a ballet barre, is the only other fitness business at Legacy Place.
Legacy Place, the outdoor retail and residential complex with 384 multi-family units sold for $101 million in 2021 to Boca Raton-based Woolbright Development and Dallas-based Lone Star Funds.
The plaza at PGA Boulevard and Alternate State Road A1A did strong business after it opened in 2006 but has struggled to bring in customers amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of e-commerce. Many of its signature stores — such as Best Buy and Barnes & Noble — do much of their business online.
Since then, efforts to bring new tenants to the center have met with uneven results. EoS Fitness is expected to bring a new set of customers to the center.
The Palm Beach Gardens Planning and Zoning Board unanimously voted in mid-October to recommend the gym’s approval. The City Council is expected to vote to approve or deny it at its next meeting on Nov. 2.
Legacy Place has already updated their website directory, saying Eos Fitness is “coming soon.”
The gym offers personal trainers, yoga and cycling classes, and a backyard for its members to work out under the sun. Each gym also is equipped with a hot tub, sauna, massage chairs and indoor swimming pool. Membership fees at EoS Fitness start at $9.99 per month with an annual membership fee of $49.99.
“We are finding that many people have very specific fitness needs,” said Nicole Plunkett with Cotleur & Hearing, the agent representing the project. “EoS Fitness will complement not just the people who visit the center, but the residents as well.”
City planner Christopher Oftedal expressed concern over the future success of Legacy Place, saying that he drives past it often and gets the sense that it is “completely empty.” He still voted to recommend bringing EoS Fitness to the center.
“Is there any long-term strategy, or are we just kind of putting a Band-Aid on Legacy Place?” Oftedal asked at the mid-October meeting.
Amanda Kennedy-Sita, vice president of acquisitions at Woolbright Development, said that Legacy Place’s retail space is currently 70% occupied.
Kennedy-Sita hopes to achieve 90% occupancy by the end of the year. She expects two major restaurants, a coffee shop and other smaller “mom-and-pop” retail to come to Legacy Place by then.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. —
The future home of TGL golf, a "prime-time golf league" founded by Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy, will be known as the SoFi Center.
The arena will be able to seat about 1,500 people at the Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens.
Previous coverage: Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy break ground on new TGL site
TMRW Sports says the SoFi Center will feature "a giant simulator screen powered by Full Swing technology measuring 64 feet high by 46 feet across, roughly 20 times the size of a standard simulator screen. Alongside the simulator inside the venue will be a dynamic short-game complex that includes three sand bunkers and three individual 15 feet x 27 feet Virtual Greens within a massive 3,800 square-foot putting surface."
It is set to open in January 2024, but those who live in the area are not as excited as some local sports fans.
“When we moved here, we realized the ball fields could eventually become buildings, labs, parking lots, or something; we never realized it would be an enterprise by some millionaire golfers,” Buddy Herrington said.
Herrington has lived in his Palm Beach Gardens home for the better part of four decades. His yard backs up to the construction.
“They have been working at all hours of the night," he said. "It’s not this noisy, but there is big machinery.”

He said people in their neighborhood are less worried about traffic and more concerned about potential flooding after experiencing a flood in 1995.
Palm Beach State College built a berm in 1997 and there has not been a flooding issue since.
“We want to make sure they have the proper drainage because now that they are building on it, there is going to be even more water that has to go somewhere other than the ground,” he said.

Palm Beach State College sent us the following statement addressing the concerns of Herrington and his neighbors:
"The safety of our community is always our priority. We appreciate the fact that residents expressed their concerns during community information sessions held recently at our Palm Beach Gardens campus and we have taken note of the issues.
The site is being developed in accordance with a permit for stormwater drainage approved and issued by the South Florida Water Management District. There have been no flooding issues throughout the construction process. The Civil Engineer for the TMRW Sports project has confirmed the existing stormwater management system provides the required water quality treatment and storm drainage.
The concerns of residents date back to major flooding that occurred in the neighborhood in 1995. The college constructed a Berm in 1997 to provide a barrier and there have been no major flooding issues since then."
In regards to the partnership between Palm Beach State College and the TGL, PBC leaders sent WPBF 25 the following statement:
"Palm Beach State College is proud to be the host location at our Palm Beach Gardens campus for the inaugural home and live broadcasting venue of the TGL, which will provide many benefits to the College and our students.
We’re most excited about the benefits that this historic partnership with TMRW Sports will bring to our students. For example, PBSC’s construction students will be touring the site in the next week as part of their learning experience. Students will have an opportunity to speak with TMRW Sports’ construction team, engineers, and project managers. There are also a number of technology internships being made available to our students, and a career fair planned in the fall, with job opportunities for local residents. This is in addition to guest lectures by renowned leaders in sports, entertainment and business, and use of the facility for college events. In addition, as a result of this partnership, PBSC is developing a curriculum on career pathways in AI and technology in sports management, marketing, entrepreneurship, retail, and project management."

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — An $80 million plan to revamp a 50-year-old marina is being considered in Palm Beach Gardens.
The PGA Marina, located at PGA Boulevard and the Intracoastal Waterway, is located in a corridor home to considerable development. However, some say that comes with increased congestion.
"It's hard, there's a lot of traffic," Derek Dunn, who works in the area, said.
"The [PGA Boulevard] bridge is a nightmare," Mike Mehdipour, who lives and works in the area, said.
There's now a possible plan to change the decades-old PGA Marina.
"I think it is a bit of an eyesore," Mehdipour said.
"It's probably going to increase the population a little," Dunn said.
Austin Schell, the chief executive of Port 32 Marinas, met WPTV at the site Wednesday to discuss the project.
"This was built in the early 1970s," Schell explained. "It's like any infrastructure that is 50 years old. It no longer meets the requirements of the modern boater. Frankly, the concrete is falling apart. The steel won't last forever."
The city of Palm Beach Gardens confirmed that the next steps include a city council meeting on Thursday night with a public hearing and vote.
"I think it's important to remember that we're adding a net new of 57 slips, similar to a gym membership, not everyone shows up at the same time," Schell explained.
He went on to say that he wants a new look with noise and safety improvements.
"The entrance to the River House Cafe currently runs through our forklift travel area," he said.
The entire stretch of the PGA corridor is seeing recent development, including residential. There is a new project planned for completion in 2025 that includes Ritz Carlton residences.
"You'll have three, seven-story buildings," Joey Eichner, executive vice president of the Catalfumo Management and Development Group, said. "This is one of the largest residential developments going on the waterfront with a large marina."
Thomas Deskin, who lives near the construction, said his family has been here for 50 years.
"We are one of the closest houses to the water on the whole waterway," he said.
The face of Florida, he said, is changing and with that comes concerns of adding to the already busy bridges and roadways.
"We are always worried about that," Deskin said. "But we also try not to worry about things we can't control."

If you happen to drive down RCA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and look toward Palm Beach State College's athletic field, you may be wondering: What is that enormous white dome that seemed to have arisen overnight?
The dome is the main piece at the site of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's new TGL, a new golf league that infuses technology with in-person golf.
With groundbreaking on the site in February, construction has been happening fast, with the league expected to start play in January.
On Monday, Oct. 9, the air-supported dome went up. At nearly 250,000 square feet, it will hold close to 2,000 people. It is 75 feet high and covers almost the entire football field-sized athletic field.
It will include a 46-by-64-foot screen — nearly 20 times larger than a simulator screen. The "SoFi Center," as it will be called, will include a 40-yard-wide short-game complex featuring three dynamic putting surfaces within the 3,800 square-foot green and three sand bunkers where the stars will compete.
This is how the league will work: Pro golfers play both virtually and in-person within an enclosed arena. The idea of the project is to “bring golf into the 21st century,” says McIlroy. Woods (Jupiter Island) and McIlroy (Jupiter) both live within 20 minutes of PBSC's Palm Beach Gardens campus.
Along with commitments from Woods and McIlroy, TGL's roster includes four other players in the Top 10 in the world rankings: No. 3 Jon Rahm, No. 6 Xander Schauffele, No. 7 Max Homa and No. 8 Matt Fitzpatrick. The roster also includes major champions Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Adam Scott and Justin Rose, as well as Rickie Fowler and Billy Horschel.
The format calls for six three-man teams to compete against each other. There will be 15 weekly matches, followed by semifinals and finals matches.
The league will start in late January, with 15 regular-season Monday night events consisting of six teams of three PGA Tour players each competing head-to-head in 18-hole match play. The matches will be capped at two hours.
On Oct. 3, the TMRW Sports Group announced a multiyear commercial partnership with SoFi Technologies to become the presenting sponsor of TGL.
SoFi will have its name emblazoned on the Palm Beach Gardens venue. SoFi already has a large presence in sports — SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, serves as the home stadium for the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
Here are the four teams, and their owners, in the league so far:

Clean up continues in Palm Beach Gardens Monday after an EF2 tornado touched down on Saturday.
After further assessment, the National Weather Service Miami confirmed its intensity Sunday. Officials say winds from the tornado peaked at 130 mph. NWS estimates the tornado was on the ground from 5:10 pm to 5:21 pm.

NWS Miami can confirm an EF-2 tornado occurred yesterday April 29, 2023 in Palm Beach Gardens. Multiple reports of damage to trees, homes, buildings, power poles and cars. For more information visit the latest Public information Statement: https://t.co/Y5tBQ8SZWz pic.twitter.com/i94is2rnFL— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) April 30, 2023
Officials say the tornado was about a quarter of a mile wide, and the path of destruction spanned more than 2 miles.
The tornado caused damage at the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments next to U.S. 1 and PGA Boulevard. Cars were also damaged in that parking lot, and nearby trees were destroyed.
"I watched it for about 20 seconds to see which way it was going to move, and then obviously, when I saw it kind of closing in toward us, I immediately shut the slider, went back in, huddled in the bathroom, the building started to shake, there was a lot of noise for 20 to 25 seconds,” said Andrew Laybourne, who lives in the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments.

Laybourne says he's lucky his apartment only had a little damage. But other people's apartments had more significant damage, and several cars were thrown around during the tornado.
"I got chill bumps on my arm," said Jason Rash, who lives in the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments. "I’m lucky to be alive. I had my back against the concrete wall. I’m in an open-air parking deck, and I’m like, ‘I’m going to get blown away. If I stand here, I’m going to get slammed against the wall.'"
Rash was on the phone with his son, who was across the parking lot at a gym. They’re both doing OK.
"The whole time when you’re thinking about your child trapped in a building over here, and he can’t get out and you can’t get to him and I was like, ‘Oh my God, my life is in danger’ and that’s when I ran to get to the stairwell,” Rash said.
"(My son) started crying, and he was like, ‘Dad, what can I do?’ and I was like, ‘Get down! Get down! Get down!’" Rash said.

Power lines in the area exploded after the storm passed. Many trees along U.S. 1 in Palm Beach Gardens fell down due to the storm. At least one boat that was docked capsized. Firefighters say two cars driving southbound on U.S. 1 rolled over due to the storm. First responders say one of those drivers had minor injuries.
In Juno Beach, several power lines are now slanted due to the storm.
"It's got to be a tornado because I've never seen anything like this in all the hurricanes I've seen. This was powerful,” said Norman Hirsch, who lives in Juno Beach.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews say they’re still assessing the damage.
