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 Buttzville, 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 Buttzville, 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:

I never thought a debate between Taylor ham and pork roll aficionados would lead to a civil war.
A few weeks ago, in a story I wrote about moving to New Jersey from Alabama, I mentioned my confusion with the two different names for this Garden State specialty. And within the roughly 200 emails I received from gracious New Jersey folks welcoming me to the state, many let me know it’s Taylor ham, by god — or pork roll if you know what’s good for you!
Overall, the response has been incredible, but seriously, why does this meat have multiple names? Only in Jersey, I guess.
A handful of responses were not so positive, however. A couple of people told me to go back to Alabama because they don’t need any more Muslim Arabs here. Sadly, and regardless of where I go, I have gotten used to expecting racial tones (sometimes flat-out racial slurs). There will always be those who wrongly lump all Muslims in one ugly place. Religious labels should bring people together, but unfortunately, they don’t.
Anyway, I feel humbled and grateful for New Jerseyans’ welcome and hospitality so far, and I will not allow the few to ruin the overwhelming goodwill of the many.
Having said that, I’m still not totally accustomed to life in the Garden State, even after living here a month now. Here are a few things that still puzzle me:
- Parkways, turnpikes, and toll booths, oh my! My poor GPS is working overtime trying to navigate which exit to take after I sling-shot through one of Jersey’s endless toll plazas. I’ve learned I have about minus-two seconds to decide which of the 17 different highway splits to take. If I hesitate for one millisecond, the car behind me is ready to run me over. I’m still learning, okay?!
- What’s the rush?: It sure seems like everyone here is in a huge hurry. The speed limit on the Turnpike is apparently somewhere between 65 and 900 miles per hour — slow down, people! And just because I have Alabama tags, please don’t crack yourself up and point while telling everyone in your car, “Look, a doofus from Alabama.” I see you in my mirror, and I can read lips.
- Jug handles, bless their hearts: Who invented these monstrosities? I have now realized that there is no logic in their design, and I will not be swayed. Just let me make the stupid left! I think the committee who drew up plans for these confusing ramps did so blindfolded and eating a plate of spaghetti while skating backwards on one foot.
- Town tongue twisters: I love the town names here, although I’m not sure how to pronounce some (okay, most) of them. Towns like Ho-Ho-Kus, Cinnaminson, Buttsville (I laughed so hard I almost crashed!) Cheesequake, Hackensack, Loveladies, Succasunna, Foul Rift, Quibbletown, Hi-Nella, Moonachie. And I cannot begin to say Parispan ... Parsipani ... Parsippany, is it? I need a translator.
- What’s that road called? You also have some insanely strange road names: Shades of Death Road, Orphan Boy Court, Weaseldrift Road (Another LOL), Ghost Pony Road, Whaleback Waddy (Waddy in Arabic means valley, and this road runs between two mountains, food for thought), and Easy Street. But don’t feel bad. In Alabama, there is a road called Booger Hollow Road. In Michigan, Psychopath. In Arkansas, Farfrompoopen Road. And in Colorado, the mail-person’s nightmare: A Dog Will Lick His Butt but Won’t Eat A Pickle Road.
- Where should I eat? I have yet to try several Jersey food staples, including your tomato pie, bagels, saltwater taffy, or a sloppy Joe. And as for Taylor ham/pork roll, I’m a little apprehensive — what if I don’t like it? Will I be deported back to Alabama? Or will I end up like this unlucky Jersey mobster, stuffed in a trunk outside the Huck Finn Diner? Speaking of which, I haven’t visited a diner yet, either. I know, I know. If you have any recommendations for where to dive in, shoot me an email.
- Pie means pizza: In the South, pie means baked dough filled with pecan, chocolate, banana, or any other gooey, sugar-coma-inducing filling. Up here, you better mean pizza, or you will be corrected by a grumpy Italian man as he waves his hand in your face (not that I learned from experience or anything).
- Losing the “New”: So, New Jersey is also just “Jersey,” correct? That’s awesome, and something you guys — I didn’t use “y’all,” I’m learning! — clearly know but I had no idea. No other state with “new” in the name can claim this honor. York? Hampshire? Mexico? I don’t think so.
- How to listen to Springsteen. I’ve been told if I wanted to live in Jersey, I must become a fan of Bruce Springsteen and declare my favorite song. Everyone living here has apparently has one — it may even be printed on your driver’s license. A colleague recommended “Thunder Road,” and I have to say when I read the lyrics, I can see becoming a fan of the Boss. That song is brilliant. But where do I go from here? Do I just start at the beginning? Try a greatest hits CD? Help!
Ok, I’m hungry. It’s time for some pizza. I mean, some pie.

Dave and Erin Anderson just needed to push through the roadblocks in front of them.
Much easier said than done, though, as two of those roadblocks felt more like mountains.
As they both put it, a lot of bootstrapping was needed.
The couple hoped to open Buttzville Brewery in Warren County in May of 2020. Forces beyond their control postponed the opening for nearly 14 months.
A combination of the global coronavirus pandemic and not being able to secure key Small Business Administration loans put the whole operation in jeopardy.
Still, they always focused on the light at the end of the tunnel.
“We kept the focus on Dave’s love of sharing beer and educating people about beer and I think that saw us through to the end,” Erin said. “We really wanted to support this community, too. Washington has a lot of potential.”
The doubt and uneasiness turned into pure elation on a recent Saturday. After all the uncertainty, Buttzville Brewing Co. opened its doors to the public in the heart of Washington.
“This is exactly what I wanted to do,” said Dave. “I want to help the community. I want to bring good beer, a good time, a good atmosphere.”
Craft beer fans now have a chain of breweries a relatively short distance apart on Route 57 with Invertase in Phillipsburg, now Buttzville in Washington and the aforementioned spots in Hackettstown.
Opening day comes just over seven years since Dave started home brewing.
Typically someone more prone to staying active rather than sitting down to read a book, it came as a surprise to Erin when Dave fell in love with Charlie Papazian’s book “The Complete Joy of Home Brewing.”
It ended up being the perfect Christmas gift, which also included Dave’s first homebrew kit.
“I’m going to get him this and he’s not going to like it,” she recalled her thoughts at the time. “Whatever. It’ll end up in the basement and we’ll sell it at a yard sale.”
Instead, a passionate and life-changing hobby was born.
He read it cover to cover, purchased several other books about the hobby and traveled to various conferences and clubs.
Dave brewed his first beer, a cream ale, in 2014. Now just seven years later, he owns his own brewery.
“It sounded like a lot of fun to brew,” he said. “I read the book before I brewed my first batch. It was a year and a half of brewing that I knew I wanted to get serious. It was a matter of can we actually do it.”
His local homebrewing club, the Lehigh Valley Homebrewers, has seen several of its members move on to open their own breweries, most notably ones in eastern Pennsylvania like Taylor House, Lost Tavern and HiJinx.
Dave can now happily join that list.
His main focus is German beers and there were four available to try this past weekend. A pale ale, a hefeweizen, a milk stout and a blonde ale, which was very crips.
A seltzer is also there for the non-craft beer crowd.

No matter which way you slice, dice, load, mash or fry 'em, it's hard to go wrong with a potato dish. Especially when it comes to french fries!It's an all-time favorite fried junk food, and they're different everywhere you go. We all have our favorite french fry place. (Say that 5 times fast!) For me, if we're talking fast food chains, Five Guys french fries are where it's at!But where can you get the best, freshest, fries in the state of New Jersey?...

It's an all-time favorite fried junk food, and they're different everywhere you go. We all have our favorite french fry place. (Say that 5 times fast!) For me, if we're talking fast food chains, Five Guys french fries are where it's at!
But where can you get the best, freshest, fries in the state of New Jersey?
Eat This, Not That, a popular source for all things food and nutrition, has an idea. You can agree or disagree. There are seldom right and wrong answers when it comes to French fries, and since there are so many different takes, recipes, preparations etc., there's no real exact science for what constitutes a superior french fry.
So according to Eat This, who has the best french fries in the Garden State?
Good news, Warren County! They're at Hot Dog Johnny's in Buttzville, NJ!
This restaurant has been a landmark since 1944, and is recognized as one of the country's most famous must-visit roadside spots.They're famous for their dogs, buttermilk and birch beer, but their fries are also something special:
Look for the big hot dog on the roof of this roadside restaurant to find the best fries in New Jersey. The fries are super fresh and just plain delicious on their own. You won't find any gourmet versions or different sauces here. They specialize in just plain fries and do it well. Wash it all down with some freshly made birch beer.
Have you tried these famed fries before? Do you agree with this choice of the best fries in New Jersey? Let us know!
This seems to be an ongoing debate. It's a topic on conversation that can get pretty heated in the Garden State because we're passionate about our pizza, especially boardwalk pizza.
PST listeners have spoken. Here are the best, according to a new PST Poll, as voted by you.
With locations in Seaside, Wildwood and Ocean City, this looks like a great pick. When the pizza slice doesn't fit on the plate, that's a sure sign of greatness. Lol. When answering the PST Poll about the best boardwalk pizza, PST listener, Jessica T. said, "Everyone knows it's 3 Brothers."
This pic was too cute not to include. This is one of our youngest PST listeners enjoying his boardwalk pizza from 3 Brothers. It was so good, he ate it really fast. Lol. Those cheeks. Adorable.
This is a slice from Mack's. They've got a lot of fans. There's often a line down the boardwalk to get this pizza.
Located in several spots in Ocean City, there's no denying this is the most popular pizza place on the boardwalk. Most people credit the delicious sauce for it being so good.
It didn't make the BEST list, but, MY favorite pizza down the shore is Primos in Somers Point. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It used to be on the Ocean City boardwalk, but, now is located just over the Ocean City 9th Street bridge in nearby Somers Point.

There’s really no kind way to say this, so we’re just going to come out with it: What were our Jersey forefathers thinking when they dubbed Buttzville Buttzville? Well, it was named after the founder, Michael Robert Buttz; and that poor guy had to go through life with the initials M. R. Buttz (say it fast with a twang, and you’ll feel his pain). Clearly they had to flip a wooden nickel to choose from all the possibilities: Buttztown, Buttzland, Buttzberg … and it’s tails for Buttzville! (Oh, the puns a...

All in jest, of course; but the fact remains that New Jersey doesn’t lack for towns with peculiar names. Let’s explore.

Ho-Ho-Kus (pronounced ho–HO–kus)
With a name that sounds as if it might conjure a spell, this cozy residential town may be a magical place to live; but there’s no hocus-pocus to the story of Ho-Ho-Kus. Despite a bit of a ru-ru-ckus over how the name came to be, the widely held belief is that it’s contracted from the Delaware Indian term Mah-Ho-Ho-Kus, which means “the red cedar.” Ho-hum.

Hi-Nella (pronounced like it’s spelled)
A town that sounds like a neighborly greeting on a Mayberry lane, Hi-Nella is a blink of a borough snipped from the now-defunct township of Clementon back in 1929. Less than 1,000 people live in this tiny town whose name is either derived from the Native American term for “high ground” or is a tribute to the coincidentally christened Nella, wife to the developer of Hi-Nella estates. In response to New Jersey’s push to merge smaller towns with larger municipalities to “ease tax burdens,” the borough’s officials resist — leaving the state’s task force with little more to say than, “Bye-Nella.” For now.

Moonachie (pronounced moo-NAH-key)
If you’re from New Jersey, you know the key to pronouncing “Moonachie” is getting un-hooked on phonics — that “ch” can’t fool you, and you know on which syllable the emphasis goes! Moonachie is one of those fun words to say, like “lollygag” and “snickerdoodle;” but the backstory, though interesting, is rather bland. It’s named for the Iroquois Chief Monaghie, who lived in the cedar forests in the 1600’s. That’s it. If only Moonachie were right next to Buttzville … now that would be fun!

Succasunna (pronounced suck-uh-sun-uh)
Another entry on the “Fun to Say” list (unless you’re Sylvester the Cat) is Succasunna. Once known as Suckasunny (just try to say that without smiling), its name comes from the Lenni-Lenapi term for “land of black stones” because of the abundant iron ore found there in the early 1700s. Isn’t it IRONic?

Shamong (pronounced sha-mawng)
Well, “shamong” us for poking fun when we have a town right here that can toot its own horn. The name literally means “place of the horn” because of the abundance of deer that supplied food and clothing for centuries of Native Americans. Not only is Shamong home to the first and last Indian reservation in the state, it’s also home to one of the most heartwarming roadside attractions in Jersey: Mighty Joe the Gorilla, a go-kart mascot salvaged and restored to stand as a memorial to the owner’s son at Mighty Joe’s Gas, Grill and Deli on Route 206.

Harvey Cedars and Loveladies (pronounced like they’re spelled)
These neighboring towns shore have made a name for themselves on Long Beach Island, luring beachgoers to recreate by the sea for so long that the names sound less and less peculiar. And while there is no man named Harvey Cedars — the name evolved from its original designation as Harvest Quarters — there was a man called Lovelady. Thomas Lovelady, a sportsman who loved hunting, and perhaps ladies, too.

Quibbletown (pronounced like it’s spelled)
Including Quibbletown on this list leaves room for debate. Technically, this 18th century settlement is today an unincorporated community in Piscataway called New Market; but a park and middle school still bear the original argumentative name. Quibbletown is unusually descriptive, reflecting the dispute among different religious denominations as to when to celebrate the Sabbath: Saturday or Sunday. With a little grace, they might have compromised and simply called it Sabbathtown.

Tavistock (pronounced like it’s spelled)
Tavistock is what happens when people come together for a good cause. You know, like golf. Increasingly teed off by the blue laws prohibiting them from playing the game on Sundays, members of the Haddon Country Club put on their big boy knickers and set off on a new course; that is, they built an entirely new one. One club member had recently acquired the Tavistock estate, and he offered part of it to carve out 18 new holes. Ultimately, the estate and its new golf club seceded from the oppressive borough of Haddonfield, dropping the blue laws in the process. Today, this tract of land measuring less than three-tenths of a square mile is home to approximately five people and the Tavistock Country Club; and its name remains on par with its original designation — a nod to the English hometown of its founder.

Thanks to Native Americans, explorers and early settlers, the list of Jersey’s quirky town names is far from finished. And while we poke good-natured fun at these curious designations, we must also make mention of the fact that each one honors a person, family, tribe or language that came before us. It’s legacy. No ifs, ands or Buttz.
