HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen

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.

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 West Palm Beach, 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 West Palm Beach, 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.

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.

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 West Palm Beach, 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 West Palm Beach, 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

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 West Palm Beach, 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

How Wellington is growing: Village has offers to turn K-Park into shops, restaurants, homes

WELLINGTON — Two builders are vying to purchase K-Park and develop the 70-acre village-owned property into a mini-downtown for Palm Beach County's western communities.

The two companies W & W VIII LLC., owned by Wellington resident Jim Ward, and The Related Group, which built The Square in West Palm Beach, envision transforming the village-owned site next to The Mall at Wellington Green into a walkable district that mixes residences, restaurants and shops.

"We feel that Wellington really needs a town center,” Ward told the Wellington Village Council on Tuesday, Dec. 5.

K-Park is Wellington's largest remaining undeveloped property along State Road 7. Over the last decade, the council has heard plans for the site, including a Palm Beach State College campus, a horse park and multifamily housing, but thus far has chosen to leave it undeveloped.

How Wellington is growing:Lotis developers want to switch senior housing for apartments

Ward sent an offer to the council in April to purchase K-Park for $54 million and build a mixed-use project. Kenneth Himmel, the CEO for Related Urban, sent a letter to the village on Dec. 4, stating the development group was interested in building a residential and commercial community on half of the property's 70 acres.

The North London Collegiate School, a group of European top-ranking K-12 educational institutions, also filed plans with the village this year to build a private campus over half of K-Park, leasing the property from the village.

Wellington acquired K-Park in 2003 for $8.5 million from the family of former Palm Beach County Engineer Herb Kahler, giving it its name. The village has leased the property to Aldemar Farms since 2010 for $55,000 a year.

Mayor Anne Gerwig said if the village were to consider selling K-Park, council members needed to create a master plan for the land with elements that would benefit Wellington.

New life for an old mall?Turn Wellington Green into the west's downtown, study recommends

"It's our property,” Gerwig said. “We need to know what we want on it before we close on anything.”

Council member John McGovern said the present council had to make a decision before the terms of Gerwig and council members Michael Drahos and Michael Napoleone end after the March 19 election.

“It would be irresponsible of this five to hand a decision of this magnitude to the next five and think that they can get up to speed with the impact of it,” McGovern said.

What does Ward family envision for K-Park?

Ward's company first submitted plans to develop K-Park in 2015. He told the council in December his company aims to build Wellington a town center that is open and walkable, compared to the outdated model of The Mall at Wellington Green.

The development would be centered around a green lawn with interactive fountains flanked by a “commercial corridor” that would feature boutique stores, restaurants with outdoor seating and apartments towering above.

W & W VIII LLC's offer to purchase the land for $54 million is more than its assessed value, which is estimated between $39 million and $46 million. Besides the commercial corridor, W & W VIII's proposal includes:

Ward said the project would feature "modern Mizner" architecture and listed examples of other mixed-use projects such as Forth Worth's Stockyards, Houston’s Market Street-The Woodlands, Savannah’s Eastern Wharf and Charlotte’s Park Road as inspirations for what K-Park can become.

The Wellington-based developer built the village's Trader Joe's, Cleveland Clinic and Winding Trails plazas.

“Every project we've presented to you, we’ve followed through,” Ward said. “We are local."

What does Related want to build on K-Park?

Himmel's letter said Related was interested in developing half of the property into a mixed-use community.

Himmel said the project would be organized around a “main street” with a central roundabout featuring shops, restaurants and apartments. The other half of the property would be occupied by a K-12 school that would be a separate deal, Himmel said. The letter did not specify who would build or operate the school.

No 'party houses' in Wellington:Village tightens rules on short-term home rentals

Related has built mixed-use projects around the country including The Square in downtown West Palm Beach, Hudson Yards in New York City, and The Grand in Los Angeles. Besides the main street and the private school campus, Related's proposal includes:

In the letter, Himmel wrote the developer would still need to evaluate the financial viability of the project, and conduct market evaluations and land appraisals. He added that Related was interested in establishing a development plan for the area with the village before making a purchasing offer.

Wellington Village council to vote on K-Park sale in January

Gerwig said the offer by the Ward family was generous but that Wellington needed to create a development plan for the property and define the elements that would benefit the village.

“Don't ask a developer what they want,” Gerwig said. “If you own it, you get to decide what you want, and I don't think we've gotten to that point.”

Gerwig said any decision to sell the property would need to have buy-in from Wellington residents.

"What do we want?” Gerwig asked. "We have to have that conversation with the community.”

Councilman Michael Napoleone said that back in 2015, village residents had voiced interest for turning the area into an entertainment and commercial district. He said a similar multifamily project, Wellington Garden, had garnered resident support because it featured an 18-acre botanical garden.

Drahos said interest from Related was a "game changer” and the council needed hold off the sale until it can evaluate all of its options.

"I'm curious with what Related may be able to offer Wellington,” said Drahos, who has talked about bringing retailers such as Tory Burch to the site. “We are in a fortunate position right now. That just means we need to do a little more work.”

McGovern said it was a “big deal” for the council to even consider any plans for the site but added selling the property would bring millions into Wellington’s coffers.

The council agreed to review the final proposals for K-Park on Tuesday, Jan. 16, and then proceed to a vote on the sale of the property.

"It is a game-changing sum,” McGovern. “It is a massive undertaking, but it can change the history of this village both because of the importance of land and the money being discussed.”

Palm Beach Daily News

It's the season of giving, and resident Stephen Ross chose this moment to announce that he is giving in a big way.

Mr. Ross on Dec. 11 announced the launch of a new nonprofit, Related Together, to which he committed $8 million to help West Palm Beach children prepare for and attend college.

Related Together will pay for college preparatory advisers at Palm Beach Lakes High School and Forest Hill High School, both in West Palm Beach; and will work to provide full-tuition scholarships to needy local students to attend Palm Beach State College through the Stephen M. Ross Emerging Scholars Program.

While the nonprofit will start with education, it also will provide financial support for other needs, including housing and access to health care.

This is a solid investment by someone who has spent the past two decades investing billions of dollars in the city. The developer of The Square, formerly known as CityPlace, has broadened his interests to include hotels, offices and residences throughout West Palm.

Mr. Ross, who owns the Miami Dolphins, has a reputation for backing educational causes and has given nearly $400 million to the University of Michigan, his alma mater.

This is the first time Mr. Ross has publicly launched his own local, non-profit program in the county. Some might say it's about time he invested in the people of the city that is so crucial to his empire. We say, better late than never.

In making his announcement, Mr. Ross said the county is "a model place in this country" and as such, he wants the city's children to go to college "and get skills necessary to be successful right here locally."

By investing in young people who might never have given college a thought — many because of an assumption that they can't afford it — Mr. Ross is going to change lives by offering hope and, perhaps more importantly, a choice.

We know college is not for everyone, but the data consistently support the idea that a college education increases the chances for upward mobility and financial success.

So giving these children a choice to pursue a college education opens up a world of possibilities that could take them and their families to places they never could have dreamed of.

Mr. Ross is the latest in a line of Palm Beachers who are choosing to invest their philanthropic dollars in Palm Beach County. We hope more will join this group or increase their level of commitment.

The county is booming, and helping to change the lives of its residents for the better is a win-win for everyone.

Cold front plunges into South Florida this weekend aided by El Niño-influenced jet stream

A sauntering churn of winter winds is expected to plunge into South Florida near week’s end, sending temperatures tumbling and clearing melancholy December skies.

The National Weather Service in Miami is forecasting Saturday morning to be the coldest this week for the lower latitudes of the Sunshine State with an official overnight chill of 47 degrees in West Palm Beach and a high around 65 degrees.

Late December’s normal low temperature as measured at Palm Beach International Airport is 58 degrees with a normal high temperature of 75.

Cold weather forecast for other parts of Florida

Statewide, the robust area of low pressure dragging Canadian bluster into the subtropics will mean low temperatures in the 30s in Tallahassee, frost and a light freeze in Jacksonville, and highs in the 50s at Orlando-area theme parks.

More:El Niño in Florida can mean rainy, cool dry season, but climate change may blunt the chill

"The main story is going to be the morning low temperatures," said National Weather Service meteorologist Zach Law, who is based in Melbourne. "We're not forecasting any miserable rain."

Robert Garcia, an NWS meteorologist in Miami, said northwest winds on Friday and Saturday of about 10 mph could dip wind chill temperatures into the upper 30s in western Palm Beach County communities and areas closer to Lake Okeechobee. West Palm Beach hasn’t experienced a temperature in the 40-degree range since Jan. 17 when the low hit 49 degrees.

Cold weather shelters in Palm Beach County generally open when temperatures of 40 degrees or lower, or wind chills of 35 degrees or lower, are forecast for periods of four consecutive hours or more.

“The good news is it’s going to be dry,” Garcia said about the weekend. “It will be chilly, but we’ll be able to have some glimpses of sun on Saturday and then it will be sunny on Sunday.”

Although there were stints of heavy rain in Palm Beach County this month, including a total of 2.67 inches on Dec. 16 and 17, rainfall was less than an inch above normal in West Palm Beach through Christmas Day.

For the year, Palm Beach International Airport measured 73.6 inches through Dec. 25, which is about 12.5 inches above normal. That’s compared with Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, which tallied 112 inches of rain for the same time period — an astounding 52 inches more than average.

Miami International Airport is nearing the end of the year with 82 inches of rain, which is about 15 inches more than normal.

At the same time, Gulf Coast counties are down rainfall for the year, with areas of Manatee, Sarasota and Pinellas in extreme drought. As of Tuesday, Naples had received 29.7 inches of rain for the year. That's nearly 20 inches fewer than normal.

Garcia said some minor coastal flooding in Palm Beach County is possible with patchy rains ahead of Friday’s cold front combined with lingering high tides from Tuesday's full moon. He’s recommending anyone going to the Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday to take a sweater or jacket.

“This weekend will definitely be a taste of winter,” Garcia said.

Contributing to the pending chill is a significant dip in the jet stream, which on Tuesday was raging over the southeastern United States from southern Texas through northern Florida. A more southern path of the jet stream — which flows at a height near the cruising altitude of commercial planes — is a hallmark of the periodic climate pattern El Niño .

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced in June that El Niño had arrived, which traditionally means cooler and wetter winters for South Florida.

Earlier this month, NOAA said there is a 54% chance of El Niño becoming “historically strong” through January.

“An event of this strength would potentially be in the top 5 of El Niño events since 1950,” NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center wrote in its Dec. 15 forecast.

“It’s primarily El Niño driving the pattern right now,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. “Cloudy days are an impact of El Niño , but if the sun isn’t back on Friday, it will be there for the weekend.”
