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 Brainards, 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 Brainards, 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:

The U.S. is full of airports—more than 19,000 of them—when you include heliports, seaplane bases, and what the FAA calls “other landing facilities in the United States and its territories.”But at the general aviation level, the total is closer to 3,300 for airports that are open to the public and part of the FAA’s National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems.

The U.S. is full of airports—more than 19,000 of them—when you include heliports, seaplane bases, and what the FAA calls “other landing facilities in the United States and its territories.”
But at the general aviation level, the total is closer to 3,300 for airports that are open to the public and part of the FAA’s National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems. That’s still a big number, but it is getting smaller as airports across the country close, for reasons that range from a critical mass of noise complaints to real-estate development plans that value warehouses and shopping malls above runways and ramps.
For pilots who have been around a while, airport closings can start to feel like an epidemic. We read about (and in our case, write about) political maneuvering aimed at “repurposing” airports. Communities make economic and environmental cases for cutting pollution or putting the space to what they consider better use, as with the current battles over Reid-Hillview Airport (KRHV) in San Jose, California, and Hartford-Brainard Airport (KHFD) in Hartford, Connecticut.
Personal experience also shapes our opinions. East Hanover Airport (N58) in New Jersey, where I got to briefly take the controls of a Cessna 182 while in fifth grade, closed in the 1980s, but no development followed. You can still see the runway through the weeds. About 50 miles northwest, Trinca Airport (13N), where I made my first decent tailwheel landings, closed two years ago. The sweet grass strip could no longer resist the force of rising real-estate values.
As more people move farther from cities, rural areas once considered “the middle of nowhere” and perfect for airfields are suddenly ripe for development. Meanwhile urban neighborhoods, some of them on the rise after years of decline, seek to keep existing residents while attracting new ones. An airport’s expanse, with space for new homes, stores, offices, and parks, must make a tempting target.
Below are six airports whose futures are in doubt for a variety of reasons. Some of their stories are well-known, some not. But in each case pilots, flight students, mechanics, FBO operators, and others in the aviation business will miss them if they close.
Opened in 1943 as part of a production site for Consolidated-Vultee military aircraft for World War II, the airport has been considered for other uses throughout its history. The city of Allentown and other groups have proposed building high-rise apartments and a warehouse on the property and using the runways as drag strips, only to be thwarted by resistance from the local community and federal officials.
While many airports face threats of closing within months or a few years, the end of the line for Teterboro, a hub for business aviation, could be decades away. Still, the outlook is grim, according to the Regional Plan Association, a nonprofit that seeks to improve economic and environmental conditions. The group says Teterboro, with a field elevation of 8.4 feet, is likely to be flooded most of the time by late this century.
Known for its Fly In Cafe, outdoor activities and RV campsite, this 2,300-foot turf strip is friendly to vintage taildraggers. Attractions include a Fly-In Festival in August, the nearby Cabell County Fairgrounds and October’s Milton Pumpkin Festival. The airport’s fans worry that disputes between the county commission, which owns the property, and the airport manager could result in the sale and possible closure of the airport.
Many have heard about the years-long dispute over this legendary airfield that was once home to Douglas Aircraft Company. It is a classic case of residential zones closing in around a once-remote airport. Complaints about noise and pollution eventually resulted in the shortening of the runway to 3,500 feet from 5,000 feet in 2017 to keep jets out. That year local and federal officials also agreed to close the airport on December 28, 2028. But airport advocates continue efforts to save it.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors began looking into options that include possible closure following a handful of accidents near the airport, which is in a densely built-up area. In January, an airplane set down on nearby railroad tracks and was hit by a train shortly afterward. Police video showed officers pulling the injured pilot free of the wreckage seconds before the train destroyed the aircraft.
A model for other big-city airports when it opened in 1927, the facility was Detroit’s primary airport until 1947, when many airlines moved to Willow Run Airport (KYIP) and later to Detroit Metro Airport (KDTW). From the mid-1960s through the 1990s, several airlines returned, but the airport gradually became better-known for dilapidation. While the city has looked into redeveloping the site for other uses, private groups have sought to raise funds, revamp the airport and keep it open. While its GA operations continue, its future remains uncertain.

That distinction, at least for now, belongs to Patrick LePoidevin, who surpassed the 1,000-yard mark this past week, also in his fifth game. He’s at 1,132 yards and 12 touchdowns, while Garbolino is at 1,006 yards and a state-leading 14 touchdowns.
But those are hardly the only eye-opening statistics in the conference at the midway point of the season. We’ve got four running backs with 700-plus yards rushing, two receivers over 500, and two defensive backs with four interceptions.

Fed fears, China COVID returns
US stocks fell sharply last week and are extending the selloff today as the treasury yield curve inverted on rising fears that aggressive Federal Reserve hiking will send the US economy into a recession.
Following the unexpected increase in CPI in May to 8.6%, the likelihood of a 75-basis point rate hike has risen significantly. Fed fear is hammering the market lower, investors are keen to whip their money off the table ahead of Wednesday’s decision.
Pressure is certainly mounting on Jerome Powell and Co, ahead of the meeting. The central bank looks like it will need to play catch up, whilst also attempting to restore credibility. Looking ahead, the economic calendar is quiet. Attention will be on a speech by Lael Brainard, the vice-chair, for further clues over the next steps for policy.
Adding to the market’s woes, authorities in both Shanghai and Beijing have ordered mass COVID testing with some districts once again barred from leaving home. This is a setback in China’s re-opening plans, which dragged stocks in Asia sharply lower. This comes after socks had risen last week amid improved relations between authorities and tech stocks.
In corporate news:
Tesla drops over 4% pre-market on the broader tech selloff and despite the EV maker filing for a 3 for 1 stock spilt late on Friday. Furthermore, the Shanghai factory is back operating at 100% capacity. The stock also received a broker upgrade from RBC.
Coinbase tumbles over 17% pre-market, weighed down by the crash in cryptocurrencies.
Where next for the Nasdaq?
The Nasdaq is falling, testing 2022 lows. The RSI supports further downside whilst it remains out of oversold territory. Sellers will need to break below 11490 to bring 10950 the October 2020 low into play. Resistance can be seen at 12070 the May 20 high, with a break above here exposing the 20 sma at 12300. It would take a move above 12940 the June high to create a higher high.
FX markets – USD rises, GBP tumbles
USD is rising, building on gains from last week as hawkish Fed expectations build and as investors seek out its haven properties. The greenback is rising for a fourth straight day and appears set to test its multi-year high. The buck has traced 10-year bond yields higher, which now sit at almost 3.2%
USD/JPY rose to its highest level since 1998 on central bank divergence ahead o the BoJ and FOMC rate decisions this month. The latest jump in the pair comes following Friday’s CPI data which has raised expectations of a 75 basis point rate hike this week.
GBP/USD is falling, trading around a monthly low after disappointing UK GDP data. The UK economy unexpectedly contracted -0.3% MoM in April after contracting -0.1% in March. Expectations had been for a 0.1% rise in economic activity. The data added to fears of a sharp economic slowdown just three days ahead of the BoE interest rate decision.
GBP/USD -1% at 1.2210
EUR/USD -0.27% at 1.0595
Oil falls on Beijing COVID & global growth concerns
Oil prices are falling after 7 straight weeks of gains. News of a rise in COVID cases in Beijing have hit hopes of a quick ramping up of demand in China. The outbreak which has been labelled as ferocious by officials means parts of China are likely to stay locked down for longer.
The cooling demand outlook comes as fears over the rising cost of living and slowing global growth also dampen the demand outlook. Concerns are rising that if the Fed hike rates too aggressively over a long period of time the US economy will fall into recession, which would cause demand destruction.
Meanwhile, supply remains tight as less Russian oil hits the market and as OPEC+ struggles to ramp up production. Capacity issues means that the oil cartel are failing to reach output targets even before they are raised in July.
WTI crude trades -2% at $116.30
Brent trades -1.9% at $118.60

Alice Cooper, Rob Halford and Scott Stapp were joined onstage by Larry the Cable Guy for a rousing rendition of The Doors' classic "Roadhouse Blues" at Cooper's CoopStock 2 benefit concert in Mesa, Ariz., last week, as Classic Rock subsequently reported.
The rockers jammed with the comedian at Las Sendas Golf Club on Saturday (April 30) to aid Cooper's Solid Teen Rock Centers, the singer's youth outreach that has two locations in the Valley of the Sun.
Watch the video down toward the bottom of this post.
Sponsored by the Norelli Family Foundation, as The Arizona Republic reported, CoopStock 2 went off under the theme of "Grooves and Divots." In addition to the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour" performer born Daniel Lawrence Whitney with the Judas Priest singer and the former Creed vocalist, Cooper's guests throughout the evening included Collective Soul's Ed Roland, former R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills, comedian Gary Mule Deer, SIXWIRE, The Alice Cooper Band's Chuck Garric, and teen jazz sensation Yohan Kim.
On its website, Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Teen Centers say the foundation's "goal is to provide a landing place for all teens. This local sanctuary is provided to support an exciting and creative journey for teens. Join us in building a Solid Rock for the next generation."
Cooper, the generation-spanning rock singer who revealed he contracted COVID-19 in 2020, released the album Detroit Stories last February. The musician often displays his charitable spirit — a photo of him serving food to children recently resurfaced and went viral. Cooper also said he "put money aside" for his touring crew during the pandemic.
Peace. Love. Rock & Roll Fundraiser. Join Alice Cooper for CoopStock 2 – Grooves and Divots, sponsored by the Norelli Family Foundation, on Saturday, April 30th at Las Sendas Golf Club from 6 to 11 p.m.!
Alice will be joined by fan-favorite Larry the Cable Guy, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Ed Roland of Collective Soul, Scott Stapp the voice of CREED, Mike Mills founding member of R.E.M., the comedy and music of Gary Mule Deer, SIXWIRE, Chuck Garric of the Alice Cooper Band and more for a groovy night under the stars.
Joining the line-up will be Jazz teen artist and YouTube sensation, Yohan Kim of South Korea, and our crazy-talented teens as they dance and share their music along with our incredible silent and live auction, food trucks and more, all to benefit Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Centers in Mesa and Phoenix!
