Let's Talk!

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen
 HRT For Men Basking Ridge, NJ

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 Basking Ridge, 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.

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 Basking Ridge, 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.

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 Basking Ridge, NJ

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 Basking Ridge, NJ

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 Basking Ridge, NJ

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 Basking Ridge, NJ

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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those 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

SOMERVILLE, NJ – Somerset County's Commission on the Status of Women is once again sponsoring Project First Class, the annual enterprise that collects donations of school supplies for children of families served by the Food Bank Network and other nonprofit organizations in Somerset County.

"The summer is winding down, and it's time to turn our thoughts once again to the new school year and ensuring every student has the supplies they need to excel academically," said Commissioner Sara Sooy, liaison to the Commission. "Sadly, many families don't have the resources to fill a school backpack, and so we are asking those who do to pick up a few extra school supplies during their own back to school shopping and donate them to Project First Class."

New school supplies such as notebooks, three-ring binders (1½ to 3 inches), pencil cases that fit inside of binders, paper, glue sticks, safety scissors, index cards, highlighters, markers, pens, pencils, crayons and new or gently-used backpacks will be accepted. Non-perishable and canned food will also be accepted.

"School can be a challenging environment, and every student should have the pens, binders, backpacks and other items they need to conquer those challenges," said Sheriff Darrin J. Russo. "My officers and I are excited to once again collect and distribute these backpacks to ensure every student can thrive this year and into the future."

Organizations, non-profits, religious institutions, and businesses are also encouraged to collect and donate school supplies and canned/non-perishable food during this time. All donations will be distributed by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County to families and students who are in-need.

Donation Locations

Somerville: Donations can be dropped off on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Friday, Aug. 26, in the Project First Class box inside the front vestibule of the Somerset County Administration Building at 20 Grove St., Somerville.

Bound Brook: The Food Bank Network of Somerset County is also accepting Project First Class donations. Donations can be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 7E Easy St., Bound Brook, NJ 08805.

'Significant Uptick' In School Enrollment In Basking Ridge

To accommodate that growth, the district will need to open up 2 classrooms, hire 4 teachers and about 6 aides.

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Bernards Township School District is seeing a "significant uptick" in student enrollment this summer prompting the need for more classrooms and teachers, said, Superintendent Nick Markarian.

"It is a substantial cost but students move into town and we are happy to meet their needs appropriately," said Markarian at the July 25 Board of Education meeting.

This summer alone, the district has seen 17 students register for preschool and also for the special needs programs in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.

"That is a very significant number when we try to manage class sizes at around six students in that program," said Markarian of the special needs program which runs out of Mount Prospect Elementary School.

To accommodate that growth, the district will need to open up two classrooms, hire two more general education teachers, two more special education teachers, and around six more aides.

When factoring in the teacher and aides' salaries and health benefits, the district is looking at a "ballpark of $85,000 on average for teachers and probably in the ballpark of $55,000 to $60,000 for aides," according to Markarian.

Those numbers will vary depending on what health benefits the new hires choose.

Even with state aid, the district will be responsible for the first $40,000 it costs per student.

Ultimately, the district won't know until all the staff is hired and students are enrolled on what the increase to the budget will be.

All of this follows the district's decision to eliminate eight teaching positions as part of the adopted $111.7 million 2022-23 Bernards Township school budget. Read More: 8 Teaching Positions Eliminated In $11.7M Bernards School Budget

Markarian said in May the reduction in staff was due to a "downward trend in enrollment."

The eight positions cut included three elementary school positions, two middle school positions, and three high school positions.

Here is a look at the year-over-year decline in enrollment since 2016 in the district:

Heat index levels are expected to hit between 100 and 104 degrees on Thursday.

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — A poor air quality alert and a heat advisory has been issued for Basking Ridge ahead of a very hot Thursday.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a Code Orange Air Quality Action Day for Ground Level Ozone from 11 a.m. through 11 p.m. on Thursday.

This means the air quality has the potential to reach unhealthy levels for sensitive groups including the very young, the elderly, and persons with respiratory diseases such as asthma.

Those among the sensitive groups should avoid strenuous activities during the afternoon and the early evening hours.

Additionally, a heat advisory remains in effect for Basking Ridge from 11 a.m. Thursday through 8 p.m. Friday. Heat index levels are expected to hit between 100 and 104 degrees.

The highest temperatures are expected to happen on Thursday. Low temperatures in the mid 70s Thursday night will not provide much relief from the heat, according to the National Weather Service.

BASKING RIDGE, NJ – The Somerset County Park Commission's Environmental Education Center (EEC) makes learning about nature interesting for children both in and out of the classroom when professional Naturalists present science-based topics using a hands-on approach. Topics range from discovering how to identify animal tracks, to a discussion about the process of maple sugaring. Programs are appropriate for children in kindergarten through high school.

"This is a great way for children to gain an appreciation of nature and begin to respect the environment, said Park Commission Secretary Director Geoffrey Soriano. "These accredited programs make learning about nature interesting through a recreational learning experience."

The EEC will create and adapt programs according to the educators' needs for the classrooms and field trips. All programs meet the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Classroom Programs In-class programs include: "Who's Track Is That?" when children will learn how to identify animals by their tracks; "Maple Sugaring," which provides participants with a glimpse of the secret life inside of a maple tree; "Amazing Adaptations," explains how animals adapt and survive their habitat; and "Basically Bugs," which investigates the creepy crawly life of bugs.

Field Trips Fun field trip programs include: "Who Lives in a Pond," where children will learn about unique pond life and the food chain; "Sensory Sleuths," when kids discover nature through their five senses while walking; "Let it Rot," when a Naturalist explains the recycling and decomposition process and how animals and species aid in this process; "Aquatic Habitat Math," gives children the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a field scientist by collecting data, identifying species, and recording observations. These are just a few of the programs the EEC offers.

Somerset County Park Commission The Park Commission stewards nearly 15,000 acres of county-owned open space, which is visited by 2 million park users each year. Five golf courses have three driving ranges, a pitch and putt course and a recreational putting course. Other attractions include a riding stable, an environmental education center, two tennis facilities, an outdoor pool, paddle boating, a rock and rare plant garden, an award-winning rose garden, an arboretum and a sensory and fragrance garden. Six county parks also offer amenities, such as athletic fields, picnic facilities, bike paths, fishing, bird watching, cross country skiing, and hiking.
