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:

Federal Reserve Governors Lael Brainard and Esther George were on the wires today, both coming out with hawkish comments that pushed the US Dollar higher. Brainard said that “the Fed is prepared to take strong action if inflation and inflation expectation indicators suggest the need for such action”. In addition, she discussed rising wages and that the Russian invasion of Ukraine may further boost food and gas prices. Brainard has tended to lean dovish, so when she spoke with a hawkish tone, the markets noticed!
Fed Governor George was speaking around the same time ask Brainard. She said that a 50bps rate hike is option the FOMC has to consider. She also said that it’s possible that the Fed may have to go above neutral in order to bring down inflation.
These comments were hawkish enough to send the US Dollar bid. The DXY (US Dollar index) had been in an upward sloping channel since May 2021. On March 4th, the index broke above the top of the channel and made a high of 99.41 on March 5th. Since then, price has been oscillating around the top trendline of the channel between 97.68 and 99.41.
Source: Tradingview, Stone X
On a 240-minute timeframe, DXY made a new high and traded above 99.41, its highest level since May 2020. Will price make it to 100? If it does, it must first break above the 127.2% Fibonacci extension from the highs of March 5th to the low of March 30th, near 99.89. Above there resistance is at the psychological round number of 100, then the 161.8% Fibonacci extension from the same timeframe near 100.49. However, notice that the RSI in in overbought territory, an indication that the DXY may be ready for a near-term pullback. If this move proves to be a false breakout, support is at today’s low near 98.84, then the March 30th lows near 97.69. Below there, price can fall to the bottom trendline of the channel near 96.75.

EUR/USD makes up roughly 57% of the DXY and therefore, tends to trade in the opposite direction. On the 240-minute timeframe, EUR/USD had broken below an ascending wedge. After a retest of the bottom trendline of the wedge near 1.1184, the pair moved lower and today took out the lows from March 28th near 1.0945. Support below is at the March 7th lows of 1.0806. Notice however that the RSI is oversold, indicating the possibility of a reversal. Resistance is at the 1.0945 breakdown level then horizontal resistance at 1.1028.

Hawkish comments from both Brainard and George have given the DXY a pop and caused EUR/USD to move lower. Watch for more hawkish comments from Fed members which could cause the DXY to push above 100!

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- In the four seasons prior to Austin Holman being named the Scotch Plains-Fanwood football head coach in 2019, the Raiders racked up zero regular season wins. At the time of the hire, Holman became the third head coach in four years to don the main headset on Fridays for the Raiders. In his first year, Holman guided Scotch Plains to four victories. In his second campaign, despite the roadblocks of COVID-19, the Raiders finished a season with a winning record for the first time since 2007.
In 2021, the hope is to continue progressing in development.
“We just want to get better,” Holman said. “We want to get better day by day and go from there. We have got a lot of guys who have experience, but even they have to get better. And they have to set and raise the level of the guys that are inexperienced.”
To continue advancing the skills of players, the Raiders stick to specific virtues that mold their mentality in order to produce on game days.
“We have a couple core values that we take very seriously here, and that is going to take us into the right direction. The first one is playing with relentless effort. In just doing that, in every phase of the game, I think that it is going to carry over on the field, off the field, and that it is going to make us better. And that is what we are striving to do, everything is going to be better,” Holman said.
Holman has had his players understand this perception since his first season, and he will rely heavily on some of those veterans he’s instilled the mindset to: Mike Banic, Matt Power, Anthony Robinson, Tommy Schmidt, Damon Schumann, and Isaiah Nathaniel.
As a varsity letter-winner his entire high school career and now a senior, Banic will be sharpening the skills and mental aspects of the players as a leader.
“Being a four-year starter, seeing how the program has changed over the years, being here before Coach Holman even got here, how bad it was. You show the kids how not to be and help them be better,” Banic said.
As the running back and vocal point of the offense on a run heavy team, Robinson hopes he can rush for over 1,000 yards during his senior year. He knows lineman like Banic will be a pivotal part in accomplishing the objective and in generating wins.
“I think our line is going to be a big part. Pass block, run block, they are going to dominate up front,” Robinson said.
This is also a team that does not lack in feistiness despite being young.
“I think we are hungry this year,” Robinson said. “We have a lot of new guys, we lost a lot of seniors last year, so the newer guys are hungry, they want to play. This is their first time playing varsity, they want to win.”
After graduating last year’s starting quarterback, starting running back, and multiple wide receivers, the program will need new playmakers to plug into the offense as well as fill other holes the team will have. Newcomers that should see significant playing time include new starting quarterback Weston Fischer, Justin Pastore, Kenny Agwu, Khadar Jackson, Amir Crawford, Robert Koch, and Nadir Jackson.
“We have a system and everything is going to stay the same,” Holman said. “We are just putting in new pieces, new guys are going to have to take a lager role, and the guys that were two-year, three-year starters who are coming back, they have to expand their role and responsibilities.”
The Raiders begin their 2021 season against Cedar Creek at Ocean City High School on Sunday, Aug. 29, 3:00 p.m.

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers said that Federal Reserve policy makers are signaling a “new era” in which they recognize the U.S. economy is overheating as inflation runs at its fastest in three decades.
Speaking on Bloomberg Television’s “Wall Street Week” with David Westin, Summers said that Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Governor Lael Brainard this week used rhetoric that “portends a new era here for the Fed.”
“They know we do have an overheating economy,” he said. “The new problem is how do you land this economy softly.”
President Joe Biden on Monday nominated Powell to serve another four-year term at the Fed and elevated Brainard to become the central bank’s vice chair. Summers, a paid contributor to Bloomberg, praised the selections.
At the White House event on Monday, Powell said the Fed would seek “to prevent higher inflation from becoming entrenched.” Brainard said it was important to get “inflation down at a time when people are focused on their jobs and how far their paychecks will go.”
Summers has throughout the year been warning that monetary policy makers, including Powell, were ignoring the risk that a surge in inflation would prove long lasting if not tackled.
The Fed is “late to the party to recognize the overheating,” said Summers. “We’re looking at a challenge of slowing an overheating economy.”
Many Fed officials had argued that the inflation shock would prove “transitory” and indicated a willingness to let the economy run hotter than usual with the aim of boosting hiring. But policy makers decided this month to begin withdrawing their massive asset purchases. Some have subsequently said they may need to pull back even faster than the current pace of tapering. They have yet to announce a timeline for increasing interest rates, tying that decision to achieving maximum employment.
“The Fed very foolishly asserted that it wouldn’t ever start raising monetary policy until we’re at full employment,” said Summers. “They’re going to have to figure out how to maneuver in their framework.”
Government data on Wednesday showed that American consumers kept spending in October and that the number of people continuing to collect regular unemployment insurance dropped to the lowest level of the pandemic this month.
“All the numbers are pointing to a lot of strength,” Summers said. “All the numbers are pointed to limited capacity.”

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!

In a possible preview of a speech Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will give Monday, a close ally said Friday that the Fed should be in no hurry to raise interest rates, especially after a bleak U.S. jobs report.
The official, Lael Brainard, a Fed board member, said recent economic developments have muddied the picture of the U.S. economy. And she pointed to additional risks, including possible market turmoil if Britain votes later this month to leave the European Union.
"Recent economic developments have been mixed, and important downside risks remain," Brainard said in a speech to the Council of Foreign Relations in Washington.
"There is a benefit to waiting for additional data to provide confidence that domestic activity has rebounded strongly and reassurance that near-term international events will not derail progress toward our goals," she said.
Brainard argued for a delay in what would be the Fed's second rate hike after an initial increase in December. She suggested that the risk of raising rates too soon and depressing growth were higher than the risk of waiting longer.
Given that Brainard and Yellen are allies on the Fed board, Brainard's remarks could turn out to be a preview of the speech Yellen will deliver Monday in Philadelphia. The Fed chair is scheduled to discuss the state of the economy and the outlook for Fed rates.
Speaking at Harvard a week ago, Yellen had said she thought a rate hike would be appropriate in coming months -- if the economy kept improving. She said in response to a question that she expected the Fed to gradually raise its key rate, "and probably in the coming months, such a move would be appropriate."
But Yellen did not specify a date for a Fed move. The Fed's next three meetings will occur June 14-15, July 26-27 and September 20-21.
Investors' expectations for a June move dropped sharply Friday after the government said U.S. employers added just 38,000 jobs in May, the fewest in more than five years.
In her speech, Brainard took note of the weak jobs report, saying it suggested that the labor market has slowed and was among a string of mixed readings on the economy.
Brainard also observed that growth remains low in broad measures of pay. And she said that inflation -- excluding the volatile categories of food and energy -- has yet to "convincingly exceed the low levels that have prevailed over much of the recovery."
The Fed has linked further rate hikes to higher confidence that inflation is moving toward its long-term 2 percent target. The Fed's preferred inflation gauge has remained below that target for the past four years.
In December, the Fed raised its benchmark rate by a quarter-point, the first change after seven years of leaving the rate at a record low near zero. The central bank has left rates unchanged so far this year.
