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 Brass Castle, 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 Brass Castle, 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 there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

A Manalapan man is looking at decades in prison after being arrested and charged for running a Covid-19 related financial scheme that defrauded people out of a combined $1,000,000.00.
The rouse orchestrated by 48-year-old Anthony Mastroianni Jr., of Manalapan, actually pre-dates the pandemic but he set loose his plan during some of the most difficult financial times in recent memory.
His story begins in 2016, when Attorney Sellinger said that Mastroianni Jr. agreed to being barred forever by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) which meant he could no longer act as a broker or intermediary in securities transactions.
While he consented, he had no intentions of abiding by the ruling.
Attorney Sellinger said that between January of 2017 and August of 2022 Mastroianni Jr. "defrauded victim investors, many of whom were senior citizens, by falsely and fraudulently claiming that he would generate large investment profits for them through his company, Global Business Development & Consulting Corp."
Mastroianni then doubled down on his scheme by using the funds he collected from the victims and used it on personal expenses like house rent, car payments, credit card bills, and cash withdrawals instead of investing the money he promised the people he stole from over the course of the rouse.
In all, Attorney Sellinger said that Mastroianni Jr. "defrauded 10 victims out of $1-million," and, "also exploited the ongoing global pandemic by submitting a false and fraudulent application to obtain $96,300 from a federal COVID-19 emergency relief loan meant for distressed small businesses. As with his investment fraud scheme, Mastroianni misused the loan proceeds to make personal purchases and cash withdrawals."
Mastroianni was eventually charged with defrauding the victims for the investment fraud scheme and with fraudulently obtaining a loan of approximately $96,000 meant to help small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, Attorney Sellinger said.
For the scheme, he was charged in a five-count complaint with wire and mail fraud and made his initial court appearance on Wednesday in Newark federal court.
Attorney Sellinger said that, "each count of mail and wire fraud carries a maximum potential punishment of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, or twice the gross loss or gain caused by the offense."
In this case, Attorney Sellinger said that the government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carolyn Silane of the Economic Crimes Unit in Newark and Mastroianni's defense counsel is Emily Sherman Esq., Assistant Federal Public Defender, Newark.

Wealthy family men have been known to go to great lengths to keep their wives comfortable, and Francis S. Kinney was no exception. In 1885, the tobacco tycoon started acquiring 5,000 acres of land, constructed a country home on it that grew to encompass 20,000 square feet, and named it Kinnelon — very impressive, but not unprecedented.
What sets Kinney apart in the history of devoted spouses is what he did in the spring of 1886. Because the nearest Catholic church was 7 miles away, he built a chapel for his wife, Mary, and their children on the estate — in the middle of Lake Kinnelon. In 1889, he went further and commissioned Louis Comfort Tiffany to model the structure after a medieval chapel from the era in which St. Hubert, its namesake, lived. Hubert was a French-born nobleman and patron saint of hunters who was canonized in 743.
Kinney's heirless son Morris left the property to his lifelong friend, John Talbot, who developed the private, planned Smoke Rise Club Community on it. The population grew too large to use the 25-seat chapel, and after decades of disuse and vandalism, it fell into a serious state of disrepair.
But recent ongoing restoration efforts culminating in work by the nonprofit Kinnelon Heritage Conservation Society have helped bring it back to its former glory.
The editors at Wayne Magazine were recently privileged to get a personal tour from Tom Kline, lead conservator of the St. Hubert's Chapel Conservation Committee, which was arranged with the help of Lisa Masterson, owner of Kinnelon Real Estate.
Tiffany designed the chapel's entrance, which in 2003 was restored with new wood and hundreds of recast bronze pieces.
The bronze bas-relief dedication tablet designed by Swiss-born Tiffany artist Jacob Adolphus Holzer depicts St. Hubert as imagined in ancient artifacts.
Visitors enter the baptistry and are greeted by a plaster sculpture, "The Angel of Resurrection," by Antonio Tantardini. The statue was originally placed on the tomb of Francis Kinney's mother, Mary Cogswell Kinney, a friend of Mary Todd Lincoln who was one of five women present as President Abraham Lincoln lay dying. Using hundreds of pieces of thick glass precisely fractured to better reflect light, Tiffany created the Great Celtic Cross Window, which was removed for restoration in 1993 and reinstalled a year later.
Inside the chapel, a hammered brass scene of St. Hubert and his hunting hounds is seen above the fireplace. The clamshell-like holy water font is surrounded by abalone. Cori Kline was among preservationists who restored the altar to its original beauty.
The marble mosaic floor replicating patterns found in Roman ruins bears Tiffany's logo, which is embedded in the smaller circle at center.
The chapel's Tiffany altar features gold leafing and hundreds of antique glass cabochons (polished but unfaceted gems) set into white plaster. The restoration process was painstaking, and used glass fabricated in the same Kokomo, Indiana furnaces that Tiffany used in the 1880s, as well as Tiffany glass pieces Kline obtained in the 1980s that are now unavailable in the original greenish hue.
J.A. Holzer built this full plaster relief, which has been restored to date to show St. Eustache, the archangel Michael and St. Hubert against a background of foliage that spills onto the ceiling.
An iron circular staircase housed behind the latticework doors in the sanctuary ascend about 20 feet to a platform. Above it, three large bronze bells chime the hour. A trapdoor overhead leads to the clock room, home to the E. Howard & Company Tower Clock, which is wound by hand on a weekly basis, and strikes the hour throughout the year.

Clarence “CC” Davenport was a beloved regular customer at The Ducktown Tavern in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
In reality, he was so much more than that.
Davenport was also a longtime (30 year) employee for the County of Atlantic, who retired about three years ago.
We have heard from quite a few Atlantic County employees after we published our recent article about the life and times of Davenport.
They all shared such fond memories about Davenport. He was loved by so many people, who would refer to him as “Uncle CC.”
If you missed our previous coverage, here it is:
Ducktown Tavern owner John Exadaktilos and his team have come up with a great way to honor the memory of Davenport.
They have established a permanent place setting at their bar for Davenport, complete with a poured adult beverage and a reserved sign at his place setting.
The comments about CC have poured-in on our Facebook Page, where we learned that CC was a Boy Scout and later in life, he was a Sunday School teacher.
Ventnor Mayor Beth Maccagnano Holtzman wrote to us:
“Worked with this love joy for 30 years at that county. I would always ask him to sing me a Barry White song. And, of course he did for me with love. My heart is broken,” wrote Holtzman.
Former Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford wrote to us about what a positive influence that CC was in his life.
This reserved place setting is such a beautiful way to memorialize a man, who The Ducktown Tavern considered to be an Ambassador and not just a customer.
Exadaktilos told us:
CC, you will always have a spot at the bar and a special place in our hearts. Rest in peace, you are already so missed.
The Ducktown Tavern is committed to making sure that no one forgets the life of Clarence “CC” Davenport.

Karen Hurley McDonald has selected The Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey as her favorite childhood memory. She wrote, "Where else could you go for $ .50 cents and stay all day and night? Tony Grant Stars of Tomorrow and two first run movies. We saw many stars during the peak of their careers and you could see them 6 times a day. It is also special because I was usually there with my twin brothers and just watching their faces and the fun they were having I can never forget. I know that we cherish those days and I wish I could go back for just one day." This is exactly the kind of genuine emotion that we wanted to see when we set-out to do this project.
Our reader, Jeni B. wrote us that The Golden Nugget talking parrots were one of her favorite childhood memories. It just so happens that Golden Nugget architect Paul Steelman is a very good friend and we can exclusively share this photo of the lobby area with this more than 30-feet-tall, opulent brass bird cage right before the mechanical talking birds were added. I spent 9 years of my life here and loved this show, too.
Hackney's Restaurant was such a popular place in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hackney's opened in 1912 by founder Harry Hackney. It grew to be a 3,200 seat restaurant by 1929. It as destroyed by a fire in 1963, but, was rebuilt and re-opened in 1965. 153 chefs were on duty around the clock. They went through thousands of pounds of lobsters every day. The Hackney's sold it in the 1970;s. A promised re-opening in the 1990's never happened. Our reader, Mariette P. wrote us that "Dinner at Hackney's was always a family treat."
Don Hurley has submitted the iconic Captain Starn's and the fun activity of feeding the sea lions as one of his favorite childhood memories. Clarence Starn opened Captain Starn's in 1940. It was a very fine seafood restaurant for almost 40 years at Maine and Caspian Avenues in Atlantic City.
Chuck Malamut selected Adventure Village. This amusement park was opened for 10 years from 1959 to 1969, summer months only. Chuck vividly remembers "Slippery Sam," who would talk with the visiting children from his "jail cell." At the end of this gallery is an elaborate Adventure Village photo gallery of some rarely seen photos
Kristin Hurley Baker says ... "Very tough, many memories come to mind, but the first was "John" (Ice Cream Man) on the Lafayette/Pittsburgh Avenue beach. First ice cream every summer!
Mario Suarez fondly remembers his legendary Uncle, Cooks Books who hosted a television program from Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. Suarez also mentioned The Miss America Pageant, various sporting events and The Ice Capades, admitting that the this and the beautiful women were his favorite.
Maria selected The Diving Bell, which was run by The Beck Family on Steel Pier as her favorite childhood memory. The Divng Bell (pictured here in a Don P. Hurley photo) now rests in the Gardner's Basin section of Atlantic City. At the end of this gallery, we have an elaborate Steel Pier photo gallery of many never-before-seen photos. It's right after the Adventure Village gallery. It's worth tour time to take a look at it.
Last, but not least, Here are some of my favorite childhood memories. Steel Pier is right near the top. I will select indelible memories (age 9-12) of my Father taking my twin brother Don and me to Parkview Bar in Atlantic City to eat Atlantic City Hard Shell Crabs. This began my life-long love of seafood. This is also where the musical group Chicago became my favorite band of all-time (The Beatles a photo finish close second). We would 25 or 6 to 4, which was written and first performed in 1969. We loved the juke box, which had a great sound.
George A. Hamid & Son presented The Beatles at Atlantic City Convention Hall, on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City on August 30, 1964. It was actually a Steel Pier booking, however, there was no way that The Steel Pier could handle the crowd size ... especially a few years after Ricky Nelson's popularity caused The Steel Pier to actually sway from side-to-side. Many thought the pier might collapse into the Atlantic Ocean. This is one of the biggest shows in Atlantic City history.

We begin with this fabulous food selection from Steve Marchel. We're starting with this because not only does it look amazing, but, there is a great story behind it. This is called "The Lou's." It is Marchel's homage to the famous Lou's Restaurant of Ventnor. About 50 years ago, Marchel's parents took him to Lou's. He loved it and added his interpretation of this class sandwich to his own restaurant, "The Water Dog." It's 1/2 pound of lean corned beef brisket, served with a choice of Thousand Island or Dusseldorf mustard, along with a pile of their house made slaw. Comes with horseradish pickles and it's piled high, as you can see in the photograph here. Marchel said, "It's the same as it ever was."
Chef Michael Dangelo had a lot of great material to choose from. He has submitted Grilled Dorade Fennel, Arugula Salad from 20th Manning Street in Philadelphia. Chef Michael says that they deliver "Incredible Middle Eastern cuisine."
Joey Caps didn't hesitate. His selection is Veal Chop Parmigiana from the legendary Cafe 2825 Restaurant in Atlantic City, New Jersey. No explanation required. Just eat and enjoy!
For the past 35 years in Atlantic City, the Braciole at Angeloni's II Restaurant Lounge has been recognized as fine as you will find anywhere. Back on June 25, 2022, we wrote an extensive review about it. You can find it in our archives. This In Italian-American cuisine, it is thinly sliced meat that is rolled into what is known as a roulade. In Italian, you will hear it called involtini. There are many variations. Alan uses veal, with a savory filling. Many use flank steak, beef, pork chicken or even swordfish. Angeloni's unique interpretation of Braciole is fantastic. Try it. You're Welcome.
This meal was enjoyed during the Summer, 2022 at Karen Hurley McDonald's home. Not pictured are the jumbo shrimp from Randall's Seafood in Pleasantville, New Jersey. The pictured lobsters were perfectly steamed, along with Little Neck Clams, also purchased at Randall's. It was a perfect Jersey Shore meal.
Andy Kortman is a world class "foodie." He possesses "Chef" caliber skills. He had many options to choose from, including many dishes that he prepares at home himself. Andy has sent us this special pizza from Maurizio's on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township. It's called "Grandma's Pie." Kortman's work regularly takes him to Brooklyn and other parts of New York. Kortman wrote us, "I consider this to be the mecca of pizza. This Grandma's Pie from Maurizio's is as good and in some cases better than anything that I've had in New York."
Kristin is an accomplished "Foodie." She submitted this selection and it adds a nice splash of variety to this fun piece about food. Kristin writes, "One of my favorite meals is sushi because I can't replicate it at home." Kristin's favorite Sushi restaurant of all time was Bay Avenue Sushi in Somers Point, "which sadly closed during the pandemic" and has not since reopened. "Pictured is my favorite and Jon's favorite roll ... the black pepper tuna roll. It is always fresh and delicious and bursting with flavor."
Jm Fraser is also a world class "foodie," who ran as part of various country clubs that his family owned ... full service restaurants located within. Jim had so many selections to choose from and decided to submit the picture fried shrimp and clams casino from The Crab Trap Restaurant in Somers Point. This photo was from a lunch that we had together during the Summer, 2022. I had the legendary crab bisque soup, mini crab bites and stewed tomatoes. My photo immediately follows Jim's.
This is The Crab Trap of Somers Point, New Jersey. The crab bisque soup is the finest version I have ever known. The mini crab cakes and stewed tomatoes are just wonderful.
We want to make sure that in our photo gallery that we include at least one homecooked meal. This is Andrew Lauriello's version of Chicken Parmigiana. Homemade sauce, organic chicken (panko crusted), along with fresh provolone cheese and spices. It looks wonderful.
PLease indulge me. This is me (yes, wild smiling and overjoyed) at The Chart House, located at The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino. This restaurant was formerly known as Harborview when President Donald Trump owned The Trump Castle Casino Resort by The Bay. This has always been one of my favorite restaurants. This was from a special evening when the immediate Harry Hurley Family Members (Margie Hurley, Lauren Hurley Lauriello and Andrew Lauriello) dined together. This is called "The Seafood Tower." It includes all of my favorite seafood items: Lobster, Colossal Shrimp and Alaskan King Crab Legs. It was one of the finest meals that I have ever had anywhere.

The March 5 article regarding logging of Roaring Rock Park in Washington Township accurately portrayed some key points made during the special meeting on the logging plan held by the township committee. The forester who created the park logging plan spoke at length about it. A forest ecology professor from Drew University debated the alleged ecological benefit of logging a forest. I am not an expert in biology or forestry and won’t speak to these topics, but I have read the forestry plan and I know what it says. In the public record of discussion about the park and in the forestry plan itself, the clearly stated goal of logging is to sell wood products. The forestry firm will earn 20% plus fees from the harvest and a logging company will be paid to carry out logging.
The most important topic concerning Roaring Rock Park is government turning over public trust resources of the park to private interests for financial gain without conducting a stakeholder process or otherwise notifying the public in advance of a plan to significantly damage the character and natural resources of this woodland park. The park was purchased with taxpayer dollars through the New Jersey Green Acres program. It belongs to every resident of New Jersey. Commercial logging in publicly owned parks is a perfect example of privatizing gains while socializing losses. As an expert taxpayer, I can say this is a raw deal.
Volunteers in Washington Township built a network of woodland hiking trails in the park. The Warren Highlands Trail, a 52-mile long spur of the long-distance Highlands Trail extending from New York to Pennsylvania, traverses Roaring Rock Park. Brass Castle Creek, which runs through the park, is designated by New Jersey Fish and Wildlife as a Wild Trout Stream due to its naturally reproducing brook trout population. Brook trout is the only native New Jersey trout species.
How much will people enjoy hiking on rutted logging roads while listening to chainsaws and trucks in the woods? Will it be safe for kids to be in the park when logging is going on? Will there be any native brook trout able to survive in Brass Castle Creek after it is silted from vehicles driving through it and erosion from logged hillsides pouring into it? What will happen to neighboring properties when stormwater is no longer absorbed by tree roots and cascades unimpeded down steep slopes onto their property?
The forestry plan describes these and other problems likely to require remediation but there is no specific plan or cost estimate for accomplishing it. There is no guarantee that reforestation would work because of deer browse and invasion of non-native plants. It is extremely difficult and expensive to battle deer browse and weeds, as any homeowner can tell you. The forest as it is now took 100 years or more to develop. Park users will not see this forest again in their lifetimes.
Who will fix things after logging? There is no “after”. Forestry is a long game. The current logging plan lasts 10 years, but the goal is creating an ideally stocked forest of the largest and most valuable trees for continual harvest.
This is not what New Jersey taxpayers wanted or paid for with Green Acres funding. It is wrong and needs to stop now.
