What Causes Menopause?

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.

Depression

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:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

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

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:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

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.

 Ipamorelin Siesta Key, FL

Mood Swings

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 Siesta Key, 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.

Weight Gain

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?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.

Low Libido

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 Siesta Key, 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.

 Hormone Replacement Siesta Key, FL

Vaginal Dryness

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.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Siesta Key, FL

Fibroids

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

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 Siesta Key, FL

What is Sermorelin?

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.

 HRT Siesta Key, FL

Benefits of Sermorelin

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.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Hormone Replacement Siesta Key, FL

What is Ipamorelin?

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.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Siesta Key, FL

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

Ticket Editor: Siesta Key bested by Anna Maria Island for 'Greatest Beach Towns in America'

It's impossible to deny the popularity of Siesta Key; just ask anyone sitting in traffic on Siesta Drive.

Siesta Key is home to world-famous Siesta Beach, which recently placed as the No. 2 best beach in the country by Tripadvisor. There's also the equally alluring Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach with its charming campground. Sarasota County's most famous island also boasts a bunch of beloved restaurants, bars and nightclubs, including all the ones found in bustling Siesta Key Village.

And, for better or worse, those gorgeous locations have been seen by a multitude of MTV viewers thanks to numerous seasons of the network's reality show "Siesta Key."

But when the editors of the influential entertainment and travel website Thrillist created their list of "The 20 Greatest Beach Towns in America," they skipped Siesta Key and opted for Anna Maria Island, the Key's less famous tourist destination rival that you will find located about 25 miles to the north in Manatee County by the mouth of Tampa Bay. Despite Florida being home to numerous popular beach towns like Key West and Amelia Island, only Anna Maria Island was chosen from the Sunshine State.

Anna Maria Island praised for its 'old-Florida charm'

Thrillist notes "Anna Maria Island" in the story's subhed, but the 200-word blurb focuses on the city of Anna Maria.

"The northernmost of three cozy beach towns on a seven-mile-long island, Anna Maria is packed with so much old-Florida charm—from its sun-faded architecture and ice cream shops to beachside seafood shacks—it’s essentially a 1950s time warp," writes Liz Newman, who is listed as the site's former Miami editor. "Outdoor adventurers will be happy with its array of paddle boarding and kayaking tours, plus snorkeling trips to nearby spots like Passage and Egmont Keys, where you can see stingrays, manatees, sharks, and dolphins."

The author opines that Anna Maria is "a bonafide sleepy town (the speed limits seldom exceed 35 mph), so be prepared to blissfully check out on its pristine, quiet white sand beaches from sunrise to spectacular sunset."

Which is true, unless you happen to be hanging late one night out at Bortell's Lounge. Definitely not a sleepy town vibe there at last call!

Rod & Reel Pier and Sandbar restaurants in Anna Maria recommended

The Thrillist piece rightfully recommends dining on a grouper sandwich at Rod & Reel Pier and "anything on the menu" from Sandbar, where a mullet Reuben is singled out for praise.

The author concludes that you shouldn't leave Anna Maria without "biking to Bean Point to frolic in the powder white sands of this lesser-known beach located at the northernmost tip of the island."

Yes, I'm a big fan of Bean Point, featured as the lead item on my Bradenton area bucket list.

Bucket list100 fun things to do in Sarasota County including restaurants, bars, beaches and more!

Which is better to visit, Siesta Key or Anna Maria Island?

Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island both have amazing beaches with great nearby restaurants. And they're both located by lots of other fun things to do, with Anna Maria Island close to downtown Bradenton and the Riverwalk, while Siesta Key is by downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle.

The fact that Anna Maria Island doesn't allow buildings higher than three stories definitely adds to its appeal, especially if you're seeking the kind of Old Florida experience so many of us adore. In addition to Anna Maria, I also spend a lot of time in the island's other two cities: Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach, which both offer better nightlife and live music options, especially along Bradenton Beach's Bridge Street.

However, nowhere on Anna Maria Island offers a true nightclub experience like what you find on Siesta Key. In fact, one of my best late-nights out of recent memory was spent watching one-man band TL Jentgens perform at a packed Beach Club, the recently renovated Siesta Key Village nightclub established in 1947.

Here's the thing, though. I love spending time and the occasional staycation on both Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. And I'm just glad to see our Sarasota-Manatee region represented on any national list like this "Greatest Beach Towns in America."

Roundabout planned for busy intersection near Siesta Key’s public beach

SARASOTA COUNTY (WFLA) — Sarasota County commissioners recently advanced plans to bring a roundabout to the intersection of Midnight Pass Road and Beach Road on Siesta Key. The intersection sits just a few hundred feet away from the public beach parking lot.

County officials say the roundabout will improve safety in the area and help improve the flow of traffic.

During a presentation to the commission last week, Sarasota County Public Works Director Spencer Anderson talked about the benefits of roundabouts.

“They reduce crashes and more specifically, they reduce crashes that result in fatalities or significant injury,” said Anderson.

Design plans for the new roundabout included dedicated crosswalks at each leg of the traffic circle, flashing beacons at pedestrian crosswalks, 10-feet wide sidewalks around the perimeter of the roundabout, bike ramps on an off of the roundabout, and added street lighting.

Some residents on the barrier island, however, aren’t convinced the county’s plans will improve safety. Some fear it will make matters worse for people on bikes and on foot.

“We have millions of pedestrians coming through that location per year. Putting in a roundabout, I believe will just exacerbate the issues that we have,” said island business owner Michael Holderness.

Other residents told 8 On Your Side they feel the $2.9 million going toward the roundabout could be better spent.

“I don’t think it is going to make that much of a difference. I think the accident rate is very low here already, so I would like to just keep it the way it is,” said Siesta Key resident David S.

District 2 commissioner Mark Smith has lived on the island for about 30 years and also pointed out the intersection isn’t a common one for traffic collisions in his memory.

“It is an extremely tricky intersection for bicyclist and pedestrians. I am hoping this will be the solution that will make it less tricky,” Smith said.

Island resident Tom Kump tells us he is optimistic about the addition of the roundabout. “All in all, I think it will be a positive thing for the key. [It’ll] Help the traffic move and it will be safer here at the intersection,” said Kump.

County officials say construction isn’t expected to close the intersection at any point. Work is expected to take around seven months and is slated to begin next spring.

A bill that would allow residents of Siesta Key to form their own government will be introduced in the Florida legislature during the coming session.

The grassroots organization Save Siesta Key has for years petitioned local lawmakers to bring a bill to Tallahassee that would allow residents to vote on a referendum to break away from Sarasota County.

Last week, the Sarasota legislative delegation voted 3-1 to move the bill forward.

Tim Hensey, the chairman of the incorporation advocacy group, said Sarasota County’s approval of several large hotels is one main issue of concern.

"The island has a charm and that charm stands to be eroded if you put too many people out here on our streets and our beaches,” he said. “You know, we're not trying to just shut the doors and say this is our island but the increase in visitors has been tremendous."

The barrier island of Siesta Key has seen the county sign off on several high-density hotels in just the past few years. Many residents also opposed the county's decision to dredge Big Pass.

For years, residents of the island community have asked local lawmakers to support their efforts to form their own government. That effort failed last year but lawmakers encouraged the group to come back with a feasibility study and evidence that most residents supported incorporation.

In a recent election-like straw poll of thousands of residents, results showed that 87% of those responded favored the creation of a new town and local government on the island.

"Most people would say that the residents of a given area are better equipped and better tuned into the issues to protect the interests and preserve the character of the community,” said Hensey.

The group also completed a more than 100-page feasibility report on how the Town of Siesta Key would operate independent of Sarasota County.

If the full Florida legislature passes the incorporation bill and Gov. Ron DeSantis signs off, it will head to a special election in November 2024.

An incorporation referendum would then need to get more than 50% of Siesta Key's registered voters' support.

With that out of the way, here are the top 5 beaches to visit in the state of Florida, according to US News and World Report:

Tigertail Beach Park attracts vacationers looking to observe wildlife, search for seashells or rent kayaks, while South Marco Beach – populated with resorts and condos – offers plenty of space for sunbathing and swimming.

Delray Beach

Nicknamed Florida’s “Village by the Sea,” Delray Beach appeals to travelers who want the friendly atmosphere of a small town and the entertainment options of a large city. “The Wakodahatchee Wetlands and Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens can’t be missed, but nobody could blame you for heading straight for the beach,” writes US News and World Report.

The municipal beach is perfect for snorkeling and paddleboarding. Meanwhile, Atlantic Dunes Park offers a quieter beach experience in a tranquil natural setting. When you’ve had your fill of the beach, stroll down palm tree-lined Atlantic Avenue for upscale shopping and vibrant nightlife.
