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 Vineland, 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 Vineland, 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 Miami-based developer who recently bought land with permits for 210 vacation rental townhomes is going back to the drawing board to redesign the Kissimmee site.
MAS Development paid $4.8 million for the 14.4-acre site on Old Vineland Road, north of U.S. 192. The proposed Solamar development on Old Vineland Road had been owned by the same Houston developer, Fahad Al-Turki, since 2005. He had secured site development approvals from Osceola County for the project in early March but sold it to MAS Development later that month.
“We had building permits ready to be pulled,” said Dawn Michele Evans-Hall, with the planning and design firm Evans Group. “They are not proceeding with our plans. They are redesigning the project. I think they want to go smaller.”
Evans-Hall said MAS intends to construct a mix of one- and two-story units instead of the recently approved plan. “They’re from South Florida, so they feel like they have a different understanding of the market,” she said.
Attempts to reach officials at MAS were unsuccessful.
The Solamar site is one of two projects on Old Vineland Road going through a redesign.
Carlton Land President Jitendrakumar Patel, owner of the 7.2-acre site, had presented a high-density mixed-use concept to the county’s Development Review Committee last summer. The original vision called for up to 450 dwelling units, a mix of multifamily and age-restricted units with structured parking and 20,000 square feet of retail and commercial fronting on Old Vineland Road.
Earlier this month the design consultants from MEI Partners requested a new pre-application meeting to discuss a revised concept that calls for a surface-parked apartment complex with 274 units. The consultants noted that they had completed a market feasibility study, which didn’t support the higher density product or the retail use.
Farmer Architecture has submitted new renderings, showing the building height reduced from five stories to four. The new site plan also eliminates a stormwater pond in favor of an underground retention system.
Old Vineland Road has seen a spate of development activity recently, with the completion of the 377-unit Vineland Landings community in 2018 and final phase of Park Square Homes’ Veranda Palms resort community. The Solamar property is across from Vineland Landings, which has a mix of three-story apartment buildings on the southern half of the property, and a mix of two-story carriage house units and/or single-story villas on the northern half.
Dominium, a leading developer and operator of affordable housing, is in construction plan review for 330 units of affordable senior housing next door to Vineland Landings.

Shake Shack (SHAK) is betting big on drive-throughs — and seeing encouraging results.
At the 29th annual Goldman Sachs Retail Conference on Wednesday, Shake Shack CFO Katherine Fogertey told Yahoo Finance's Brian Sozzi that the company is still "very early" in this new format, "but what's very exciting is the sales potential that we have at drive-throughs."
Shake Shack, which originated as a hot dog stand in Madison Square Park, New York, has opened six drive-throughs so far. According to the company, each of the drive-throughs generated more than $80,000 in average weekly sales over the past four months ending in July, higher than the company-operated average.
By the end of 2023, the roadside burger chain plans to have at least 20-25 Shake Shack drive-throughs open, making up 20% of new locations added this year. In the second quarter alone, the company opened two drive-through locations in Castle Rock, Colorado, and Chesterfield, Missouri.
"We're building added convenience at touch points where our guests really want that, and we're also providing them a great in-Shack experience," Fogertey explained. "So if you're with your kids and you're in a rush, come through our drive-through, get your dinner, get your lunch. But if you want to hang out for a little bit longer with the family or with friends... come into the Shack. Hang out, eat. It's a great experience."
While foot traffic in urban markets, the core of Shake Shack's business model, is slowly coming back after a hit from the COVID-19 pandemic, that recovery is not coming at the expense of suburban stores.
In the second quarter, urban same-stores were up 19% compared to a year prior, echoing the levels of growth seen in the first quarter. Meanwhile, suburban same-stores sales were up 3% year over year, only slightly lower than the 4% gain in Q1.
"Throughout the entire pandemic, we've had a pretty resilient suburban business," Fogertey emphasized. "We didn't have nearly the same impact that we had in our urban markets, and it's been really exciting to see that momentum still hold, and we're still building on that, even with the urban recovery coming out here."

During Thursday meetings with South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), the water managers said water rise on East Lake Tohopekaliga in St. Cloud appears to have peaked, and that the rise of Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee appears to be slowing down as well.
SFWMD said lake levels at Lake Mary Jane and Lake Hart in Orange County appear to have reached their peak, meaning that SFWMD can continue to move water out of those lake systems to lower lake levels without adversely affecting lake levels in Osceola. Additionally, high-volume pumps are deployed at strategic locations in Osceola County, with more pumps being staged and prepared for operation in order to provide relief to impacted communities.
Residents are still urged to avoid floodwaters and pay attention to local alerts from Emergency Management. Boaters are encouraged to exercise caution when navigating waterways and avoid creating a wake that could impact homes and businesses.
The County also has updated its interactive map for those who may be affected by rising lake levels. The updated version is available here.

The Vineland Pigtail All-Stars are bringing a World Series championship to the city.
Vineland captured the 14U national title with a 2-0 win over Florida’s Longwood Impact at the Babe Ruth Tournament in Jensen Beach, Fla., on Wednesday.
Vineland went 6-1 at the World Series and avenged its only loss of the summer with the victory over Longwood.
"I have nothing but pure happiness for these girls," manager Bob Dickenson said. "This moment has been three years in the making. We kept this group together. They put in the hard work to get better and here we are, World Series champions."
Starting pitcher Nicole Ortega put together a masterful performance in the title game, scattering three hits and striking out 12. Ortega won the Most Valuable Player award for the tournament.
"It's just unbelievable, no words can describe it right now, it's just the best feeling," Ortega said by phone shortly after the title celebration.
Vineland pushed across two runs in the third inning. Emma Barbera tripled to the left-center field alley, scoring Jailyn Pumell with the go-ahead run. Brooke Dickenson followed with a groundout that scored Barbera.
That was plenty of offensive support for the left-handed Ortega, who didn't allow a runner past second base.
"(Ortega) is a gamer," Dickenson said. "I told her before the game I need that beast mode and that she needs to put this team on her back. That's exactly what she did.
"When we got those two runs, I felt at ease. I know Nic wasn't going to let them back in the game."
Vineland’s defense cut down a Longwood runner at home plate on a great throw by center fielder Ariana Torres in the fourth inning.
"That's a huge momentum-swaying play," Dickenson said.
Vineland will get some time to celebrate the victory in Florida. The manager said the team isn't schedule to fly home until 8 p.m. on Thursday.
