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 Pinecrest, 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 Pinecrest, 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:

On October 12, 2022, the Village Council met to adopt the final recommended plan submitted by the Pinecrest Parkway Citizen’s Committee. This marked the end of a nearly two-year process undertaken by the Village Council to update the 2012 Pinecrest Parkway Vision Plan.
Review the 2022 Pinecrest Parkway Vision Plan at www.pinecrest-fl.gov/US1Plan.
Since commencing its work last April, the committee worked closely with planning consultants, Village staff and engaged residents to develop the new Vision Plan to guide future development along the US 1 commercial corridor. This process, though arduous and at times contentious was successful, ultimately addressing the vast majority of concerns raised by residents regarding building heights, buffers and traffic.
I would like to extend a very special thank you to the seven members of the Citizen’s Committee for volunteering their time and knowledge to develop the praiseworthy document.
During the same October 12 meeting, the Village Council took the first step to codify the Vision Plan recommendations by adopting ordinances on first reading that update the Village’s Comprehensive Master Plan, Land Development Regulations and Zoning Map.
Review the ordinances passed on first reading at www.pinecrest-fl.gov/US1Plan.
The adopted ordinances implement most of the Citizen’s Committee recommendations and introduce residential, mixed-use development on five parcels adjacent to transit stations.
Aside from improved landscaping throughout the entire corridor and updated architectural guidelines to spur more attractive development throughout, the most notable change involves the expansion of the Pinecrest Business Alternative District to two new areas across from SW 104 Street and SW 136 Street.
The two new district areas will function similar to what has existed since 2002 across both Dadeland Metrorail Stations — providing an alternate option for future development while preserving underlying existing zoning.
Most important, with the adoption of the ordinances Village Council took steps to preserve the overall four-story building height limit that currently exists throughout the US 1 corridor within a revised, 51-foot envelope.
Village Council took steps to enhance the corridor’s character by adopting code revisions for the designated Pinecrest Business Alternative Districts that will improve the quality of life of all residents, especially those living adjacent to the commercial areas.
Specifically, new requirements for the alternative districts lower the allowable building heights from four to two-stories and provide increased landscape buffers where the affected commercial properties meet the single-family residential properties.
The ordinances adopted by the Village Council on first reading also provide improved amenities for new developments including, but not limited to, more open spaces to promote outdoor dining, colonnades, mature canopy trees, art in public places, and rooftop terraces.
A new Architectural Review Board may be established to review the larger projects to analyze and critique any future proposed development impacts on traffic and other infrastructure to ensure compatibility with residential areas and concurrency standards.
The ordinances provide a slight increase in the Floor Area Ratio (from .73 to 1) to comply with the new requirements of Miami-Dade County’s Rapid Transit Zone.
And finally, the ordinances provide a residential dwelling unit standard of 35 units per acre and increase the minimum size of dwelling units from 600 square feet to 1,000 square feet.
In the Pinecrest Business Alternative District across the Dadeland North Metrorail Station, these revised standards will have the effect of decreasing density as some affected areas are currently zoned at 50 units per acre.
Village staff is providing background on the visioning process, the Miami-Dade County Rapid Transit Zone and its effects on the Pinecrest Parkway corridor, and the details of the three ordinances that were adopted on first reading in October during three town hall meetings scheduled for November 7.
The Village Council will be considering the ordinances on second reading at a future date after the Village receives input about the proposed code revisions from the State of Florida.
As always, I am available to answer any questions and address any concerns. My email address is [email protected] You can also call me at 305-606-2364.

Alta Developers is moving forward with plans for the second phase of the Crest at Pinecrest in Miami-Dade County, but it would be another apartment complex and not an office building as originally planned.
Alta 9600 Phase II LLC, an affiliate of Miami-based Alta Developers, filed a pre-application with county officials for the 0.89-acre site along South Dixie Highway/U.S. 1 near Pinecrest. It’s directly south of the first phase of the project at 9600 S. Dixie Highway.
The first phase broke ground in late 2021 and is currently under construction. It will feature 296 apartments and 14,662 square feet of retail in 18 stories. It was later named the Crest at Pinecrest.
Back in 2019, Alta Developers marketed the second phase as a 197,000-square-foot office building. However, it has a new plan now.
As recently proposed, the second phase of the Crest at Pinecrest would have 223 apartments and 1,500 square feet of retail in 18 stories. There would be an amenity deck on the sixth floor with a pool, a club room and a gym. It would have 342 parking spaces, including 52 ready for electric vehicle charging.
The apartments would range from 665 to 1,447 square feet. There would be 130 one-bedroom units, 68 two-bedroom units, and 25 three-bedroom units.
Officials with Alta Developers couldn’t be reached for comment. Coral Gables-based Behar Font & Partners designed the project. Miami-based attorney Graham Penn represents the developer in the application.
While office occupancy levels have been increasing in Miami-Dade County over the past year as new companies move to the area, most of the new companies have been moving to Miami’s urban core or Miami Beach. The apartment market has been strong throughout the county, and the Pinecrest area has high rents because it’s known for quality schools and close proximity to the Dadeland South Metrorail Station.
