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 Ridge Wood heights, 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 Ridge Wood heights, 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:

The development firm hopes to build a 10-story luxury condo, retail project at site of the 100-year-old former home of the Mira Mar hotel.SARASOTA, FL — Seaward Development, a Sarasota-based boutique property development firm is currently under contract to purchase the Mira Mar building on Palm Avenue from the longtime property owner, according to a news release from the company.The developer specializes in one-of-a-kind single-family homes, l...
SARASOTA, FL — Seaward Development, a Sarasota-based boutique property development firm is currently under contract to purchase the Mira Mar building on Palm Avenue from the longtime property owner, according to a news release from the company.
The developer specializes in one-of-a-kind single-family homes, luxury condominiums and commercial properties.
“Our corporate office has been located at Mira Mar Plaza for the past five years and we love the charming, walkable location in the heart of downtown Sarasota on this well-known and historical address on Palm Avenue,” Patrick DiPinto, managing partner of the local firm. “We carefully select projects that we know our team can deliver with the highest level of quality that will stand the test of time and create a long-term legacy in the marketplace.”
The company is in the due diligence period of the purchase agreement and is expecting a third quarter closing on the property. During due diligence, a number of engineering inspections were ordered by the current property owner revealing that the building had gone through several substantial remodels, causing its rejection from the state of Florida for historical designation, Seaward said.
Although the current owner has performed substantial repairs on the 100-year-old wood frame building over the past two decades, it has extensive damage, according to engineers. Damages include drastically undersized foundations, badly corroded structural wood wall studs, extensive insect damage and wood rot in all locations observed, highly irregular framing configurations that call into question the load path for gravity loads and walls observed with no lateral resistance to wind loads.
The Sarasota County Property Appraiser has assessed the building’s value at approximately $2 million and repairs needed exceed more than $22 million, the company added.
“We considered remodeling the property as we love it just like the community does, but due to the declining state of the building, that is not feasible, which is why we are asking for a demolition permit,” DiPinto said. “However, our goal is to bring the Mira Mar back to life so that the community can enjoy it for the next 100 years as a true legacy project.”
The current building has been renovated several times since its original construction in the 1920s. Future plans for the property include keeping its current zoning for a 10-story building with two floors of retail fronting Palm Avenue, and the addition of a residential component set back behind the commercial component as homage to the original look and design of the property when the Mira Mar Hotel stood tall in the early 1900s.
“Many of the building materials used here have gone beyond their lifecycle and for that reason, our plan is to work with historical preservation specialists and a local salvage firm to keep what we can and preserve the building’s unique legacy and charm, but also build a new and safe property for tenants, visitors and future residents,” Matthew Leake, president of Seaward, said. “As a local development firm, it is important to us as long-term residents here to keep the charm, character and original design elements of the building, but also bring it up-to-date in safety and function.”
In 1983, The National Register of Historic Places rejected the property’s application for historical designation due to extensive renovations that destroyed many historic elements.
“The current building is not in its original state as it has been remade after substantial renovations in the 1980s due to degraded conditions,” Leake said. “Our true vision is to replace the current Mira Mar with a new and improved, safe building with code compliant foundations, impact-resistant glass throughout the building and proper structural components.”
Dr. Mark Kauffman, the current owner of the building, supports the company’s plans for the property.
“Unfortunately, Mira Mar has now passed its useful life and a confluence of situations have led to the professional realization that repairs and restoration are not a fiscal option for the permanent sustained future,” Kauffman said. “Destructive inspection that entailed cutting holes in the outside walls in about 15 places so the entire structure could be inspected… mandated an extensive structure repair is required… plus that would require building evacuation during a two-year rehab project while the carrying expenses continued (taxes, insurance, mortgage), then re-populating with new tenants. We slowly came to the realization that it would be fiscally prudent and more sustaining to demo the building, and replace the 40-year-old replica, with a new replica. This would produce permanence and retain the existing charm and ambiance of Palm Avenue. There is no other reasonable option.”
If the building’s demolition isn’t allowed by the city of Sarasota, Kauffman said that he’ll allow leases to run over the next two years “then close the building and fence it off and allow it to decay as we cannot afford the repairs anymore."
Seaward Development has built several projects in the area including Epoch Residences in downtown Sarasota, Park Residences on Lido Key and several high-end luxury single-family residences.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Following record gas prices last month, drivers in Florida are starting to see a little bit of relief at the pump.
The average price of a regular gallon of gas in Florida was $4.07 on Tuesday, according to AAA. This is slightly below the national average of $4.10.
These figures are slightly cheaper than the $4.21 a gallon that Florida drivers were paying on March 9.
The average price of a gallon of regular gas in Palm Beach County is currently $4.26, but many drivers have recently been able to fill up their tank for less than $4 at stations near West Palm Beach.
Palm Beach County's gas prices are still the second-highest in the state with only Monroe County's average price of $4.33 the only county that is higher, AAA says.
However, this respite from the record gas prices in March is still relative considering Florida drivers were paying $2.82 at this time last year.
Gas prices have spiked across the country since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The U.S. and other countries have attempted to limit the Kremlin's export of oil and cripple Russia's economy through multiple sanctions, which has reduced the global supply of oil.
President Joe Biden announced March 31 that he ordered the release of up to 1 million barrels of oil per day from the nation's strategic petroleum reserve in a bid to control energy prices.
Earlier this month, the president also waived an ethanol rule in a bid to lower U.S. gasoline prices.
The Interior Department announced Friday they are moving forward with the first onshore sales of public oil and gas drilling leases under Biden, but will sharply increase royalty rates for companies that extract oil.
It's unclear if prices will continue to trend downward or if this is a brief drop.
"It's not necessarily going to stay at that level in the near future," said Sofia Johan, an associate professor at the Florida Atlantic College of Business. "It's not necessarily the demand that we're concerned about. It's more so the supply."
AAA said Monday that a combination of global oil prices going back up coupled with increased domestic demand could actually drive prices higher.
Experts worry about the government's policies to stop the rise if gas prices won't be sufficient.
"The Biden administration is kind of continuing to move things around the edges, but we really haven't seen an announcement for lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico or expedited permitting for oil and gas development onshore," said David Holt, president of the Consumer Energy Alliance. "Those would really have a meaningful impact."
Oil experts encourage drivers to enjoy lower gas prices now before the travel season picks up.
"We are predicting kind of a longer-term high gasoline prices for the foreseeable future, certainly throughout the summer," Holt said.
