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 Bernardsville, 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 Bernardsville, 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:

When Angela Casiero and Margery St. John met doing volunteer work at their sons’ school, Delbarton, they quickly discovered a shared passion for well-made designer clothing. A year later, in November 2021, they opened their own business in Bernardsville.
Calia (Italian for “beautiful person”) is a hybrid women’s clothing store, with classic designer looks as well as contemporary fashion. “Stylish moms and daughters shop together at the store and even swap their clothing,” says St. John. “We especially like classic styles with a twist.”
“We choose each piece hoping it sparks happiness in our shoppers. When people wear our merchandise, they are often asked, ‘Where did you find that?’” Casiero says. “We hope people enjoy Calia, whether they buy or browse.”
Among the boutique’s high-end labels is Prabal Gurung, and contemporary designers include Cleobella and Jonathan Simkhai. The store is loaded with sporty as well as dressy looks. Also available are PJs, Italian handbags, slippers, jewelry and accessories. “Shoppers like to run in to find something special for a night out. It’s a local option without going to a mall,” says St. John, a Mendham resident.
A Bernardsville native, St. John was a high school track star and four-time state champion in hurdles. (In fact, the Bernards High track field is located directly behind Calia.) Her taste in clothing was influenced by years spent attending Hollywood events like the Emmys and the Golden Globes with her hubby, who is an Emmy-winning executive producer.
Casiero, a resident of Cedar Knolls, has worked in the high-end designer fashion industry for 30 years. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), she’s worked for designers Emanuel Ungaro, Alberta Ferretti and Giambattista Valli. “Every day is another day to look fabulous, so we curate our inventory to take busy women from daytime looks to cocktails,” she says. “I encourage shoppers to feel empowered by stepping out of their comfort zone. To me, great style is understated, with a special detail that personalizes your look.”
St. John adds, “The best way to sell clothing is to recommend what we personally love—and we love everything in the store, because we choose it ourselves.”
Calia (80 Morristown Road, Bernardsville Shopping Centre; 201-874-3444) is open Tuesday–Saturday, 10 am–5 pm, or by appointment.

BERNARDSVILLE, NJ– Over 100 cars were entered in the annual Bernardsville Car Show hosted by Downtown Bernardsville benefitting the Bernardsville PBA. The Car Show took place this past Sunday, June 5 at Bernards High School's main parking lot.
The family fun filled day ran from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. for all contestants to have a fair time of showcasing their cars. The event provided food trucks, entertainment for the kids, and music by Flashover Entertainment. Food trucks varied from Jersey Rolls, Latin Bites, Summer Daze, and the kids favorite Ice Cream Express.
Hundreds of spectators were walking through the parking lot keeping the event lively. Awards were given to the winners based on the spectators ratings along with raffle prizes.
“As president of Downtown Bernardsville, it is really exciting to be here,” said Amiee Watts. “We couldn't pull the car show off last year, we are lucky to have perfect weather and a great turn out for this year.”
Making this year's show different from the rest, Downtown Bernardsville committee made it possible for the kids to enter and have a car show of their own. Kids were encouraged to come with their best Power Wheels or push cars and drive around in a parade in the beginning of the show.
“We have some great parents involved with Downtown Bernardsville and on our committee,” said Watts. “We have parents with small children who have the Power Wheels, and we thought to display them and have an area for kids only, and let's spruce it up a little bit and do a parade.”
This year's car show varied from antique cars pre-1935, classic cars made between 1935-1999, muscle vehicles typically from the 1950s, to modern cars made between 2000 to today. There were special appearances of cars remodeling the ‘Back to the Future’ vehicle and a ‘Batmobile’ from Batman.
All the guests who attended the car show were able to vote on the cars based on several criteria including the following categories: Antique, Classic, Truck, Muscle, Custom, Hot Rod, Foreign, American, Motorcycle, and Modern.
The Annual Bernardsville Car Show succeeded this year's expectations. The spectators and the car owners, alike, were thrilled with the turnout and a beautiful day full of fun.

BERNARDSVILLE, NJ - The borough council unanimously adopted its $16.8 million 2022 municipal budget at Monday’s meeting.
Because the total assessed valuation of the borough has risen, the tax rate of .506 per $100 of assessed valuation will remain the same as last year.
The budget to support the municipal government is $16.843,325 million of which $11,841,320 will be raised through property taxes.
More details surrounding the budget and its contents can be found HERE.
The borough’s budget presentation, shared before the budget’s introduction by the council, can be found HERE.
In an email to TAPinto Bernardsville on Thursday, Borough Administrator Tom Czerniecki said this year’s budget was “a challenge due to some uncertainty in our non-tax revenue projections for [Fiscal Year 2022], which was experienced throughout the pandemic and continues to some extent. At the same time, as an organization, we are not immune from the impact of inflation and a very tight labor market.”
However, the administrator did express satisfaction with the final product.
“I am very pleased that we were able to keep the tax rate level, which was an important goal for Council this year when residents are also feeling the pinch from the economy. Further, we were still able to plan for important improvements that will keep the Borough moving forward such as park enhancements, downtown improvements and road upgrades.”
In the email Czernicki also applauded the borough’s department heads for “keeping spending down” last year and “helping us build a strong surplus that helps support the FY '22 Budget.”
At Monday’s meeting, the borough council also introduced a bond ordinance to raise funds for the Bernards Avenue Road project and other smaller, milling and paving projects in the borough.
The bond, if adopted at the next meeting, authorizes the borough to raise $760,000 in funding to help finance major road improvement work on Bernards Avenue – a project included in this year’s capital improvements. In total, the borough will be appropriating $1.1 million in road improvement work with $300,000 coming from a New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) grant.
Council President Chad McQueen, Council Member Diane Greenfield, Al Ribiero and Jena McCredie voted yes to the ordinance's introduction. Council Member Jay Ambelang and Christine Zamarra abstained.
Employees of Morgan Stanley, both Ambelang and Zamarra said their job prohibits them from voting on bond ordinances.
Sidewalk Concept Plans for Old Army and Lower Childs Road.
The council passed two resolutions at Monday’s meeting authorizing the borough’s engineering firm Ferriero Engineering to begin sidewalk concept plans for Old Army Road, totaling $5,600 and Childs Road for the amount of $3,400.
Back in January, residents of Old Army Road and its surrounding neighborhood voiced concerns surrounding the quality of the roads.
Safety concerns and walkability, especially for the neighborhood's children, were cited as reasons why the borough should consider installing sidewalks on the street.

BERNARDSVILLE, NJ - The borough will be investigating whether three adjoining properties across from the train station in Downtown Bernardsville, 39 and 35 Olcott Square and 5 Morristown Road, are eligible to become areas in need of redevelopment.
The council adopted a resolution authorizing the planning board to investigate whether those properties constitute an area in need of redevelopment at Monday’s Borough Council meeting.
The vote adopting the resolution was unanimous with Council Members Jay Ambelang, Diane Greenfield, Jena McCredie, Chad McQueen, Al Ribeiro, and Christine Zamarra voting yes.
“We've been approached by Advance [Realty Investors] asking that we make the Palmer properties an area in need of redevelopment so that we can enter into a redevelopment agreement for those properties,” said Borough Attorney John Pidgeon “As I understand it, they [Advance Realty] would maintain the Palmer Building itself, which is a historic building.”
Under redevelopment law in New Jersey, the planning board is charged with “conducting a preliminary investigation,” and “making recommendations” to the borough council, the resolution states.
If the planning board finds properties in question qualify as an area in need of redevelopment, the matter will be brought back to the borough council which will vote again before the properties can be declared a non-condemnation area in need of redevelopment.
This step must be taken before any redevelopment deal can be struck between the borough and a redeveloper, according to the local redevelopment and housing law cited in the resolution.
A potential redevelopment deal between the borough and Advance would follow a trend of downtown redevelopment, aimed at enhancing downtown Bernardsville. Currently, Advance Realty Investors of Bedminster is overseeing the redevelopment of the Quimby Lane block. They were awarded a contract by the borough back in August.
“We’ve seen a rough draft of what’s proposed, and it really is an impressive development idea,” said Mayor Mary Jane Canose. “The beauty of having a redevelopment plan is it really shortens the planning board stage.”
If the borough were to enter into a redevelopment agreement with Advance Realty Investors, Pigeon said, “the process would be similar” to the Quimby Redevelopment project adding, “there’s no reason this one shouldn’t move a lot faster, because like I said, they have site control.”
He also said the redevelopment agreement would give the governing body greater control over the aesthetics and site improvements.
“It’s really a rare opportunity to do urban design on two fronts of Olcott Square, '' said Borough Administrator Thomas Czerniecki. “There are just certain things you couldn’t specify under zoning, that you could through a redevelopment agreement.”
