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

BELVIDERE, NJ, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Edible Garden AG Incorporated BB #:336701, a leader in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), locally grown, organic and sustainable produce and plant-based products, today provided a business update and reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Mr. Jim Kras, Chief Executive Officer of Edible Garden, commented, “We are pleased to report solid results for the first quarter of 2022. Despite our capital constraints during the first quarter of 2022, revenues increased 10% compared to the same period last year. On the heels of our IPO in May 2022, we believe we are well-positioned to accelerate organic growth by capitalizing on our growing brand recognition, the strong consumer demand for our products and our expanding retail channels.”
“Retailers have become acutely aware of supply chain risks and are realizing the importance of locally grown produce. Our controlled greenhouse facilities allow us to grow consistently year-round by eliminating some of the variability of outdoor farming with our CEA techniques. In addition, GreenThumb, our patented proprietary greenhouse management and demand planning system, helps us track plants through the supply chain, driving greater efficiencies while reducing waste. At the same time, consumers are increasingly looking for fresh, safe, organic and sustainably grown food. Our closed looped systems and hydroponic methods use less land, less energy and less water than legacy farms, thus conserving the planet’s limited natural resources, while mitigating contamination from harmful pathogens, such as salmonella and e-coli without the use of pesticides.”
“Looking ahead, we believe our recent IPO will enable us to launch new sales and marketing initiatives to further drive brand awareness and growth. Similar to other companies in our sector, our first quarter results were affected by labor, material, and energy costs. Nevertheless, we invested heavily in our operations and have built what we believe is a highly scalable infrastructure. We expect to benefit from significant operating leverage, which should result in margin improvement as revenue continues to increase. As a result, we are encouraged by the near- and long-term outlook for the business.”
For the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, revenues totaled $2.7 million, an increase of $254 thousand, or 10.2%, compared to $2.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The increase in revenues primarily reflects growth within the existing customer base.
Cost of goods sold were $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase of $466 thousand was due to higher labor costs related to COVID-19, higher packaging costs due to inflation and higher costs charged by contract farmers to supply products.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, operating loss was $2.1 million, compared to a loss of $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. This was partially driven by an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses of $733 thousand. Outside professional fees accounted for $420 thousand of this increase, of which $400 thousand was related to non-cash, stock-based compensation expense.
The Company also incurred higher energy costs due to the increase in natural gas prices. Net loss was $2.6 million, or $0.51 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.30 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
The complete financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, are available in the Company’s Form 10-Q, which has been filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission and available at: www.sec.gov.

When: Saturday, 4 p.m.
Where: Bob DeMeo Field, Veterans Park, Hamilton (Mercer County)
Team pages: Woodstown; New Providence
Coaches: Marc DeCastro, Woodstown; Chris Brodeur, New Providence
Woodstown state titles: 1 (1991 in Group 2)
New Providence state titles: 2 (1976 in Group 2, 1998 in Group 1)
Woodstown road to final: 8-Cape May Tech 10-0; 1-Audubon 4-3; 4-Buena 15-8; 6-Paulsboro 4-2 (South final); Point Pleasant Beach 4-0 (South/Central semifinal)
New Providence road to final: 15-Belvidere 9-1; 10-Whippany Park 14-4; 6-Glen Ridge 6-0; 4-Brearley 8-3 (North 2 final); Waldwick 8-2 (North 1/2 semifinal)
Woodstown projected starting lineup: Andrew Pedrick, So., SS; Chase Rieger, Sr., P; Ben Woodruff, Sr., RF; Lucas Prendergast, Sr., 2B; Brent Williams, So., 3B; Jack Knorr, So., 1B; Richard Burger, Jr., CF; Mark Banff, So., DH; Caden DeSiato, Sr., LF; Max Webb, So. C
New Providence projected starting lineup: James Santacross, Jr., 2B; James Pazdera, Sr., P/OF; Dean Licari, Sr., C; Ryan Grill, Sr., P/SS; Matt Demareski, Sr., P/3B; Zach DeGeorge, Sr., P/OF; Nick Bisaccia, Sr., P/SS; Luca Vitale, So., 1B; Andrew Kowantz, So., OF; Jake Monaco, So., P.
Woodstown wins if: It’s been a long time since the Woodies have played for a state title. You have to go back to 1991 under legendary coach Lee Ware. It was their only championship appearance until now and they walked away with a hard-earned 2-0 win over Basking Ridge in Group 2. This year’s team is looking to bring that magic back to town by playing the same kind of baseball that put it in this position. Marc DeCastro knows it’s not the time to tinker with things, just continue to preach solid defense and throwing strikes. Woodstown has to make sure it doesn’t beat itself with mental mistakes or errors, and it can’t allow New Providence to enjoy that big inning. The offense has been there. This is a game where the defense has to be rock solid. If they can generate a few runs early and hold the lead late, a second championship should be within reach.
New Providence wins if: You can’t coach experience and New Providence has a ton of it. This team has 37 wins over the past two seasons and is in the state final for the second season in a row. New Providence needs to keep things simple - start with throwing strikes and playing good defense. The Pioneers have a win over Cranford, which says volumes about its ability to win big games. Senior James Pazdera is expected to be the starting pitcher. Pazdera has pitched a tick under 100 innings in his varsity career. He has a solid 61-22 strikeouts-to-walks ratio this spring and knows what works for him. He needs to settle in early, get ahead and stay ahead. He has a seasoned team behind him, he doesn’t need to attempt to blow every Woodstown hitter away. At the plate, New Providence has scored 45 runs in its five state tournament wins – does it need to change anything? In the state tournament, Licari is 9-for-19 with four RBI. Kowantz is 8-for 16, with five RBI. Pazdera in 8-for-16 with six RBI. DeGeorge is 7-for-20 with eight RBI. It means New Providence isn’t counting on one or two players to get big and key hits. No single player should feel the pressure. They should have loose fingers and dry palms at the plate. With eight straight wins, New Providence doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel.
Predictions: Kevin Minnick (Woodstown); Luis Torres (New Providence); Joe Zedalis (New Providence).

About Edible Garden AG Incorporated
Edible Garden is a controlled environment agriculture (“CEA”) farming company. We use traditional agricultural growing techniques together with technology to grow fresh, organic food, sustainably and safely while improving traceability. We use the controlled environment of traditional greenhouse structures, such as glass greenhouses, together with hydroponic and vertical greenhouses to sustainably grow organic herbs and lettuces. In our hydroponic greenhouse, we grow plants without soil. Instead of planting one row of lettuce in the ground, by using a vertical greenhouse, we can grow many towers of lettuce in the same area by planting up instead of planting across. Growing these products sustainably means that we avoid depleting natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance, such as by renewing, reusing and recycling materials in order to lower the overall one-time use of materials.
