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 East Hanover, 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 East Hanover, 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:

(NASDAQ:SSNT), a national provider of transformational business technology solutions and services, today announced its third quarter results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.
Financial Highlights for Three Months Ended September 30, 2022 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2021:
Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 Compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021:
For more details on SilverSun's third quarter and nine months results, please refer to the Company's 10-Q filed with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission and accessible at www.sec.gov.
Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, "The economic environment has been challenging. Despite that, we were able to continue to execute on our plan to increase our market share of our software products, as evidenced by our 59.8% increase in software revenues this quarter, and a 48.1% increase through the first nine months of the year. Our sales pipeline remains strong, and we anticipate that we will be able to maintain this pace of sales in the coming quarters. This is all dependent, however, on the U.S. economy not entering into a recession. Our customers and prospects seem to feel confident about their economic outlook, and continue to invest in their systems and infrastructure for the future, but this could all rapidly change in the event we do in fact enter a recession."
"Our challenge has been and continues to be the retention and recruitment of personnel to accommodate our growth. Our costs have been impacted by higher costs associated with increasing pay and benefits to employees to retain and recruit their services, and to address inflationary pressures in the overall economy. These issues appear to be prevalent throughout our industry, but we believe the worst is behind us. It remains to be seen whether the mass lay-offs recently announced by large tech companies will help to increase the pool of available skilled personnel, but we have seen indications in recent weeks of a higher number of applicants applying for our job postings than we were seeing earlier in the year. that there are now a higher number of personnel looking to move to companies like ours. We believe that we will continue to be successful in attracting and maintaining qualified personnel going forward under any reasonable circumstances."
"Our operating expenses rose as a result of increased inflation increasing our costs of doing business. In addition, we continue to invest in our sales and marketing efforts, with great success. Our team is doing much more traveling than during the pandemic, and is attending and sponsoring more in-person conferences and trade shows, which contribute to our growth."
Meller concluded, "We believe that we are well positioned for continued growth and success as we have a strong team, experienced resources, and a strong financial position to support our initiatives. We look forward to delivering positive results in the coming quarters."

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ) hosted its Seventh Annual Women Fighting Hunger Luncheon on Wednesday, October 26 at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park and the ICONA Avalon in Avalon. For the first time ever, CFBNJ held the event in two locations simultaneously – one in North Jersey and one in South Jersey to unite supporters from across the state. Nearly 575 people attended the event, representing tremendous growth over prior years. With the generous sponsorship of PNC Bank and Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween and the support of the event chairs, table sponsors, and attendees, CFBNJ raised close to $300,000 to feed college students in need.
Many college students are financially unstable with limited budgets, making them more susceptible to food insecurity and putting them at risk of dropping out. To combat this problem, CFBNJ distributes enough food for more than 130,000 meals each year to students at campus pantries. In addition, CFBNJ’s advocacy work in partnership with state and local government aims to enact long-term solutions to college hunger, while the FoodBank’s resource access and nutrition education efforts connect students in need with nutrition education and help to determine their eligibility for SNAP benefits.
The Seventh Annual Women Fighting Hunger Luncheon was chaired by Jill Gateman of PNC Bank, Pam Kapsimalis of Porzio Bromberg & Newman PC, Wendy Lazarus, Kelsey Nakamura of JLL, Lauren Parisier Weiss, Susan Present, and Roby Weinreich in North Jersey. The South Jersey event location’s Luncheon committee members included Maryanne Adams of Avalon Flooring, Kathleen Corbalis, Debra Fox of AtlantiCare, Kathi Galletta, Alicia Ginn, Eileen Lenegan of Lenegan Plumbing & Heating, Jann Mevoli of Sturdy Bank, Elizabeth Sheridan of Inspira Health Network, Veronica Town of Atlantic City Electric - an Exelon Company, Marissa Travaline, Erin Skotarczak, and Donna Vecere.
The Luncheon began at 11 am with a volunteer hour at both locations, during which attendees packed nearly 1,200 college meal kits that included oatmeal/grits, soup, canned tuna, applesauce, and mac and cheese. CFBNJ will donate the meal kits to its campus pantry partners. Guests also donated canned soup, granola bars, and other healthy snacks to the event’s college pantry soup and snack drive, which collected more than 2,200 pounds of food.
The event’s lunch and formal program featured an interview with award-winning documentarian, journalist, speaker, author, and philanthropist Soledad O’Brien. The Executive Producer of “Hungry to Learn,” a documentary on the hidden reality of college hunger, Soledad is dedicated to telling empowering and authentic stories on a range of social issues. The interview was live in North Jersey and simulcast in South Jersey.
“The issue of college hunger is dear to my heart, and I’m honored to have served as lead speaker at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Seventh Annual Women Fighting Hunger Luncheon,” Soledad said. “To be a student and have to constantly wonder how you’re going to get your next meal is brutally unfair and exhausting. But food insecurity is a very solvable issue.”
The program was moderated by NBC 4 New York Anchor Natalie Pasquarella and also featured testimonials from campus pantry managers and college students.
“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to share my experience with Luncheon attendees,” said Suzeana Stewart, Director of Student Development and Campus Life and Pantry Manager of Newark and New York Campuses at Berkeley College. “At Berkeley, we work to make sure that the pantry is a beautiful place with a welcoming atmosphere. It helps to remove stigma as we meet every student where they are and work to fight hunger holistically.”
“We are excited to expand the presence of our Women Fighting Hunger Luncheon to two locations to bring anti-hunger advocates from across the state together in support of struggling college students,” said Carlos Rodriguez, President & CEO of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. “These students are in school to pursue better futures for themselves and their families, and we can’t let food insecurity stand in their way.”
In 2020, CFBNJ launched its Women Fighting Hunger Initiative at the Luncheon, and this year the initiative expands to South Jersey. With more than 60 members who have donated over 3,000 volunteer hours, Women Fighting Hunger supports the goals and priorities of the FoodBank through hands-on philanthropy, leadership, and collaboration. Another goal of this year’s Luncheon was to recruit more Women Fighting Hunger members.
On Friday, November 4 from 1 to 3 pm at CFBNJ’s Hillside headquarters, Women Fighting Hunger members will pack the soup and snacks that were donated to the event’s food drive into kits for struggling college students.
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), a member of Feeding America®, has been delivering food, help and hope across the state for more than 45 years. Last year, CFBNJ provided nutritious food for over 85 million meals through its network of more than 800 community partners including pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, mobile pantries, and child and senior feeding programs throughout the 15 New Jersey counties it serves. For our hungry neighbors, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is the powerful agent of change that fills the emptiness caused by hunger and provides resources that are essential to earning a sustainable living.

In what sure feels like an increasing trend in northern New Jersey, Kushner has begun the demolition of an aging suburban office building in East Hanover — the first step in creating a 265-unit luxury apartment complex.
The project, at 72 Eagle Rock Ave., is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025.
The new community will feature a mix of one- to three-bedroom residences housed in four separate four-story buildings — with 53 apartments set aside for affordable housing.
Michael Sommer, executive vice president, development and construction, at Kushner, said the project will have great impact in a Morris County town where many are looking for premier residences.
“Today’s groundbreaking is an exciting milestone for our company and for the township, as we take the next step to develop the first luxury rental apartments ever to be constructed in East Hanover,” he said.
“East Hanover is highly desired by residents who appreciate its small-town, suburban charm in the heart of Morris County. We look forward to adding a new, modern residential option that will appeal to both existing residents and those who will be attracted to this incredible location.”
Morris County Commissioner Stephen Shaw said the transformation of outdated office space for much-needed residential is welcomed.
“(This) wasn’t viable before the pandemic,” he said. “But now, after the pandemic, with work from home, it certainly now is extremely outdated. Office vacancy rates in the area are at an all-time high and apartment vacancy is at an all-time low, and there’s an extreme need for housing in this region.
“That’s why I’m delighted to be here today as we witness this vacant, outdated commercial site that’s going to begin the transformation today to become modern, energy-efficient multifamily housing, which is in high demand in this area. The sharp rise in home prices and interest rates have bolstered the appeal of rental properties for everyone from young professionals to empty-nesters, while providing a well-balanced lifestyle through modern amenities and services.”
Kushner officials hope the resident experience will be further enhanced by a robust amenity offering.
A striking clubhouse will serve as the social and recreational heart of the community, with a modern fitness center including a studio for yoga and fitness on demand, a theater room and residents-only clubroom. There also will be expanded work-from-home spaces, including a conference room and coworking rooms.
Outside, residents will enjoy an expansive sun deck and sparkling pool with pergolas, grilling stations, fire pits, a movie screen, pingpong table and a walking path meandering around the scenic property. Other services will include TULU, an on-demand smart rental offering for high-quality household and lifestyle products.
The community’s location is minutes from Interstate 280 — which means it’s close to Newark and New York City. And it’s not far from Morristown, about 8 miles away.
Kushner President Nicole Kushner Meyer feels the property will fill a need.
“It is amazing to see the growth and development that East Hanover has had over the years, and I am proud that we are breaking ground today on a highly designed and fully amenitized multifamily project,” she said. “We have set the bar incredibly high in designing this East Hanover project to appeal to the modern customer.”
