Let's Talk!

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen
 HRT For Men Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC 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 Wilmington, NC 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 Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC

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 Wilmington, NC

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

NHCS’ law firm sued for breach of contract by former colleagues

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WHQR) - On Wednesday, January 3, at the New Hanover County Board of Education’s agenda review meeting, members Stephanie Kraybill and Stephanie Walker said they had been notified that they lost two of their employees from the Vogel Law Firm, LLC, adding that they were now in a deficit for their “specialty areas” of the law.While Kraybill and Walker did not reveal who the two employees were — a complaint filed on January 2 for money owed in small claims court in Mecklenburg County shows it was ...

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WHQR) - On Wednesday, January 3, at the New Hanover County Board of Education’s agenda review meeting, members Stephanie Kraybill and Stephanie Walker said they had been notified that they lost two of their employees from the Vogel Law Firm, LLC, adding that they were now in a deficit for their “specialty areas” of the law.

While Kraybill and Walker did not reveal who the two employees were — a complaint filed on January 2 for money owed in small claims court in Mecklenburg County shows it was Jonathan and Leigha Sink.

The Sinks are alleging that Jonathan Vogel owes them $7,779.25 for October’s legal bills.

The reason, the Sinks claim, is that Vogel breached his contract with them, and “the Defendant knows he breached [it] and is in the wrong.” They allege that he violated the contract “on or around December 28, 2022 [sic] when he willfully withheld monies due to the Plaintiff [the Sinks].”

The Sinks appear to have been researching their complaint for several weeks. Late last year, on December 21, Jonathan Sink filed a public records request asking NHCS staff to provide him with the “Vogel Firm’s October 2023 detailed invoice to NHCS/NHC Board as well as Vogel Law Firm’s November 2023 detailed invoice to NHCS.”

In their complaint, the Sinks claim they have a contractual agreement with Vogel, which provides that they are supposed to split the monthly income from “their shared client, the New Hanover County Board of Education, 50/50 on a monthly basis.”

The complaint said the contract was enclosed, but it wasn’t available through the courts; it is likely considered a part of the evidentiary file for the impending case.

The Sinks end the filing by saying Vogel is “acting willfully, unilaterally, and deceitfully in his individual capacity [...] and serves as the basis by which the Defendant’s corporate veil has been pierced.”

They are asking the court to recover the full amount they are owed, plus interest and reimbursement for court costs.

Both Jonathan and Leigha declined to comment about the filing.

Vogel also declined to comment because it’s a “personnel matter.” He also made similar statements on Wednesday, reiterating that the Sinks’ departure was both a personnel and privacy matter and that “all companies have people that come and go,” referencing the board’s previous law firm, Tharrington Smith, alluding specifically to one of their former attorneys, Colin Shive.

He went on to say that the Sinks did “very little work for the firm” and “very little has changed” now that they are gone — and that the board could “verify” his firm’s invoices with him.

However, legal invoices show that the Sinks have been doing considerable work in the areas of exceptional children and bonds and forfeitures, which Vogel said now he will take over. He said there are other attorneys on staff, but they were not named or listed on his site. Vogel said attorney Terry Wallace will continue to consult on litigation matters, human resources, contract review, and operations.

During Wednesday’s meeting, Kraybill expressed concerns that the Sinks were leaving, as well as reiterating concerns about Vogel’s qualifications, including his dubious claims to have been in the running to represent Cabarrus County (Vogel’s firm was not a top choice, and was not selected).

Board member Pat Bradford defended Vogel, suggesting that Kraybill’s criticism was a breach of the board’s ethics policy and could make the board look “dysfunctional.”

Vogel alleged that ultimately the complaints against him were because of “misinformation and people who have ulterior motives and hidden political agendas.”

He also reminded the board that they have a “contract with the Vogel Law Firm and no particular attorney” and that they “acknowledged his good work by renewing it until the end of the year,” even though the contract renewal was approved in a split 4-3 vote, with Kraybill, Walker, and Hugh McManus dissenting

Back in April when the firm first presented to the board, Vogel did say that it was four lawyers who would be representing the school district, himself, the Sinks, and Terry Wallace. He only mentioned that he would be the main point of contact for the board and that any of the four would be available “24/7 by phone to immediately respond.”

WHQR has put out requests for comment to the board and the district.

Board Member Josie Barnhart said “No comment.” Bradford said, “As I have said publicly, whatever is alleged to be occurring or alleged to have occurred between a board vendor and its staff is an internal personnel issue that does not involve the board.”

Wilmington City Council to discuss Starway Village, new Circle K, and more

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Wilmington City Council is set to discuss about $9 million in grant funding for Starway Village, a proposed mixed-use development, and more at a meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

The N.C. Office of Recovery and Resiliency for federal disaster recovery funding approved the $9 million grant back in 2022; the ordnance being considered by councilmembers would appropriate the already-received grant money to a fund supporting the development and construction of Starway Village.

Starway Village is a 278-unit multi-family affordable housing development that will include 20 fully ADA accessible units, all of which will be located at 2346 Carolina Beach Road.

Councilmembers also will take a look at moving $1.8 million from the sale of surplus properties to help pay the debt service on the recently-acquired Skyline Center. The properties were at 302 Willard St., 1536 S. Front St., and 222/226 S. Front St. As part of this, they also would need to approve the upset bid for the sale of the 302 Willard Street property for $752,500.

The council will take a look at a request to rezone 1.79 acres at 1618 Dawson Street from urban mixed-use to community business for a Circle K gas station and convenience store. The property is between 16th and 17th streets.

Per the agenda, the property currently includes a “blighted vacant building” and that nobody spoke about the request during the planning commission meeting on Dec. 6. The planning commission voted 5-1 to recommend conditional approval of the store and up to 14 accessory fuel pumps.

Another rezoning request is on the agenda: rezoning 5.82 acres at 6120 Oleander Drive for a development with 178 housing units and 20,700 square feet of office and commercial space across three buildings with four stories each. This would also include 20 workforce housing units for 15 years.

The agenda says that traffic was one of the most commonly cited complaints by people in response to the proposal. The traffic impact analysis found that some of the requirements have been met, but there still needs to be a few turn lanes added on the nearby roads before construction can begin. The lanes would be added on Oleander Drive and Greenville Loop Road, both of which would be adjacent to the development.

Tree removal and stormwater concerns were also common complaints, and the planning board included requirements that several trees that are 10 inches thick and less be relocated on site as opposed to being removed. As for stormwater, the planning board says that it would be held to stormwater standards and require maintenance of open space and stormwater ponds by an HOA or the owners/developers.

The planning board voted unanimously to recommend the project in Sept. 2023 given the above conditions and several others are met.

On the consent agenda, the city is set to award a $592,672 contract to JYMCO Construction Company Inc. for pavement repairs at

Welcome to the weekly Port City Foodies newsletter brought to you by me, StarNews reporter Allison Ballard. Truthfully, I’m not sure I’m ready for what I’m sure 2024 has in store -- but the food news is already starting. So, here’s a look at what the first week of the year has brought.

Pony up!

Speaking of what’s new, though, this new brewery taproom and restaurant held a couple of soft openings this week. While they haven’t officially announced an opening day, it should be close. So far, those who've had a chance to try it are loving the food -- created with the help of a favorite local chef, Jessica Cabo -- and the beer. (I'm not really a beer drinker, but I enjoyed the very light and tasty Lemon Lavender Shandy.) Here's a look at what to expect.

The Durham-based Ponysaurus Brewing Co. has been working on an expansion to Wilmington since 2021, when Nick Hawthorne-Johnson and his partners with the Cast Iron Group of food-and-drink businesses started working to renovate the downtown property at 214 Market St. Now, they are getting closer to opening their new taproom and restaurant this month.

Here’s a look at what beer lovers can expect.

The space

The Wilmington Ponysaurus space dates to the 1970s and was primarily used for offices. The Colonial Revival style building is located between the historic Burgwin-Wright House and Coglin's. The renovation includes two levels of indoor seating. Downstairs, there’s an entry space, and a long bar and a series of booth seating. More tables and TVs can be found on the second level that opens to the space below. In total, the plan includes about 5,000-square feet of interior space. There’s also a small patio out front with picnic tables. Eventually, they also plan to open a backyard terraced courtyard, the centerpiece of which is a masonry fireplace.

The chefs

Local foodies will be interested to know that longtime Blockade Runner chef Jessica Cabo is now the executive sous chef for Wilmington’s Ponysaurus. Cabo has said that the relaxed atmosphere and innovative, pizza-focused menu is a good fit for her. She’s also excited to be working with Beth LittleJohn, who is the company’s executive chef.

The menu

For recent soft-opening events, about 17 Ponysaurus beers were available on tap, including their flagship Biere de Garde, the popular Don’t Be Mean to People saison, and well-reviewed Scottish Ale. Eventually, they’ll add wine and frozen drinks (from margaritas to espresso martinis).

For food ordering, there's a QR code on every table, and at the base of each bar stool. Like the Durham location, pizza features prominently in terms of food, with options like a vegan tomato pie and others with local greens or fennel and sausage. People could also sample sandwiches, burgers, salads, appetizers like fried cheese curds and garlic knots, as well as seafood choices such as mussels, calamari and warm crab dip.
