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 Allendale, NJ 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 Allendale, NJ 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:

Northern Highlands knew that this was not going to be the same Montgomery team that came to Allendale for the first round of the North 1 Group 4 playoffs last year, when they left on the wrong end of a 61-14 trouncing.
This was going to be a Cougar team that was fired up and aggressive, and the Highlanders used that to their advantage, thanks to the return of two key starters. Quarterback Nate Johnson and wide receiver Zach Madison came back in a big way.
The duo hooked up for a 61-yard touchdown bomb on the fifth offensive play for Highlands and it gave them the quick lead they were looking for. For three quarters, Northern Highlands completely controlled the game and it was enough to register a 27-12 victory and a date with Irvington next Friday in the sectional semifinals.
Johnson threw for three touchdowns in the game, with his second going to Dan Smiechowski on a 4-yarder to cap a 16-play, 91-yard drive that ate up 6:49 of clock spanning the first and second quarters. That made it 14-0 Highlands, and Dan Moor nailed a 24-yard field goal right before halftime to extend the lead to 17-0.
Johnson and Madison duplicated the first half TD on the same call three plays into the second half, this time on a 71-yard touchdown that made it 24-0. Moor hit a 30-yard field goal that made it 27-0 midway through the third quarter.
Montgomery picked up a pair of fourth quarter touchdown passes, both from Mike Schmeltzer to Matt D’Avino for 61 and 57 yards, but any possible thought of a miracle comeback was quashed when Johnson went to Madison on a third and 12 play for 32 yards with three minutes left.
For Northern Highlands, it’s another week with a trip to Irvington to face the top-seeded Knights, a winner over Sayreville in their opening game. The Highlanders gave first-year coach Dave Cord his first postseason win since he stepped in for Chuck Johnson at Ridgewood in 2019 and led the Maroons to the North Group 5 Regional championship. Highands is now 6-3 on the season.
For Montgomery, the season comes to a close at 7-3. The Cougars will bring back a strong nucleus of junior and sophomore starters next season, led by Schmeltzer and D’Avino.
Right after NH scored the opening touchdown, Montgomery went on a solid drive to a first down at the Highlander 9-yard line. Schmeltzer hit four different receivers and they had the Highlands defense on its heels.
Schmeltzer was stopped for no gain on first down and sacked by Zach Chostaka on second down. A third down pass in the flat went incomplete, and after a time out, they went for the right side of the end zone on fourth down but the pass was too long for Ethan McManus.
Northern Highlands then went on the 91-yard drive to open a two-score lead.
Northern Highlands played to the defense’s aggressive tendencies. The Cougar safeties were coming up hard to stop the run, and that allowed for the deep ball to be very effective. It also meant that Johnson could exploit the defense on screens to Sparago and short flat passes to Smiechowski. They sacrificed the running game for the most part, but more than made up for it with the pass.
The Schmeltzer to D’Avino combination was the catalyst of the Montgomery offense all year, connecting 48 times for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns in the first 9 games, but Highlands held them in check in the first half, allowing only two completions for 16 yards, and 3 for 24 yards heading into the final minute of the third quarter.
Northern Highlands outgained Montgomery by a 420-279 margin, with Johnson, a sophomore, having a career game. He completed 23 of 32 passes for 341 yards and the three touchdowns with one interception. He also added 38 rushing yards on 9 runs in his first game back after missing the last two with an MCL sprain.
Madison, who has been dealing with a knee injury all season, returned after sitting out the previous game and had four catches for 167 yards. Smiechowski had a career-high 9 catches for 73 yards and Sparago had 6 receptions for 37 yards while taking a bruising with 22 carries for 44 yards. Matthew Boydell and Smiechowski had interceptions for the Highlanders.
Schmeltzer was 13 of 29 passing for 199 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran for 52 yards on 8 carries. D’Avino finished with nine catches for 167 yards, giving him 1,050 receiving yards on the season. Keith Holloway had an interception and Gavin Guidette and Lucas Szczepanski shared a sack.
“We were reading the safeties. They were biting on the under route and that gave us the chance to go deep. We were confident that we could exploit their aggressiveness.” – Johnson
“We talked a lot about getting the lead early and not giving them a chance to gain confidence. Zach Madison is a handful for anyone to cover, and even at 80 percent he’s better than most guys at 100 percent. I thought we complimented each other well; Smiechowski was making plays, Sparago, Saturn. We’ve got a lot of weapons and when we play our game, we’re very tough to stop.” – Cord

NAI James E. Hanson, the largest New Jersey-based full-service independent commercial real estate firm, announces it has negotiated two industrial leases with Elgen Manufacturing for 58,000 square feet and KTR Group Inc. for 44,000 square feet at 230 W. Crescent Avenue in Allendale, N.J. to bring the 112,000-square-foot industrial building to full occupancy. NAI James E. Hanson’s Michael Walters, SIOR and Cameron Silverstein and Richard Van Houten of The Van Houten Group represented the landlord, The Hampshire Companies, in the transactions with both tenants.
230 W. Crescent Avenue was acquired by the Hampshire Companies from the Borough of Allendale in 2021 in a deal negotiated by Walters. The building is centrally located between the Garden State Parkway and Interstate 287 and boasts 18’-22’ ceiling heights, 19 tailgates and three drive-ins. Immediately following its acquisition, The Hampshire Companies pursued an ambitious capital improvement plan for the vacant property that included the replacement of its roof and other significant investments designed to bring the building up to modern industrial standards.
Building upon the success in closing the sale of the building, Walters, Silverstein and Van Houten were tapped by The Hampshire Companies to oversee leasing for the property. Through their aggressive marketing strategy, the team quickly attracted significant interest from tenants across the area including Elgen Manufacturing and KTR Group.
Elgen Manufacturing, an HVAC and sheet metal manufacturer, serving HVAC contractors, fabricators, and resellers, was aiming to expand its operations to an industrial space nearby its Cloister, N.J. headquarters. Formerly headquartered in Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J., KTR Group will be relocating its pet supply warehousing and distribution business to the newly renovated building.
“When we set out to market this property, we knew that its strategic location paired with its ownership by one of the area’s premier real estate operators would make it highly desirable to a wide range of tenants,” said Walters. “We were happy to negotiate both of these leases to bring two high-quality, growing businesses to Allendale and to help to create another investment success story for The Hampshire Companies.”
