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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

Much uncertainty abounds, but we think there are opportunities and provide our thoughts.
Incoming data continue to support the view of ongoing economic expansion, but growth momentum remains on a decelerating path, buffeted by the fluid Russia-Ukraine war, listless Chinese and European economies, and the Fed and other central banks pivoting assertively to tighten monetary policy and, in turn, financial conditions in the face of persistently high inflation.
We think the key question for investors is whether the current slowdown, particularly in the U.S., is an intra-cycle soft patch to be followed by renewed expansion—Fairly common episodes in expansion cycles—or a precursor to a recession.
With healthy corporate balance sheets, ongoing strength in employment and wage growth, and households in solid financial shape with a sizable amount of excess savings that can tapped into to smooth spending, we believe the outlook for the largest components of the U.S. economy—personal consumption and business investment—is likely to remain adequately robust to sustain the expansion over the coming quarters. This, together with a relatively benign message from our recession scorecard, underpins our current assessment that U.S. recession risk, while present and rising, remains reasonably moderate on a 12-month horizon.
Nevertheless, we are cognizant that the risks to this sanguine view stemming from the headwinds mentioned above are building, which suggests to us that “end-of-cycle” worries are likely to persist until markets gain greater visibility on the path of inflation, Fed policy, and the durability of the current U.S. expansion.
More “income” in bonds
Bond markets have endured a bruising stretch over the past 12 months amid a rising rate environment, which has broadly pressured bond prices lower. Despite the understandable frustration associated with negative returns in bonds, we believe the recent rout in bonds comes with some potential positive aspects that investors should take into consideration.
First, as bond prices fall, their yields rise, so the recent selloff in bonds has meaningfully bolstered their expected returns. Thanks to the downward repricing, the yields on most major segments of the bond market have not only improved substantially compared to a year ago, but also climbed near or above their respective averages since 2002. Moreover, credit spreads—a measure of the additional yield compensation for credit risk over government bonds—have widened, pointing to enhanced excess return potential for corporate bonds.
Yield profiles look increasingly reasonable
Second, now that bond yields have moved off historically low levels, relatively higher starting yields today can offer more of a cushion to weather further rises in rates, as well as help augment the ability for fixed income to act like a shock-absorbing diversifier in multi-asset portfolios during periods of equity market turbulence.
While the rising rate backdrop has resulted in short-term capital losses in bonds, the combination of considerably higher all-in yields and improved diversification capacity suggests to us that some value is starting to emerge in fixed income assets.
An equities markdown
Aside from emerging markets, forward 12-month earnings estimates for major markets have displayed impressive resilience, particularly for Canada’s resource-heavy S&P/TSX Composite (see table). In stark contrast, the forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiples investors are willing to pay for these expected earnings streams have declined sharply, as the backdrop of a global economy undergoing a slowdown and higher interest (discount) rates—which reduce the present value of future profit streams—have prompted investors to demand a higher risk premium to own equities.
When in doubt, focus on earnings
In an environment of heightened macro uncertainty, we think earnings delivery will be taking on added importance for equities. Our expectation for slower, but still positive, economic growth suggests that, despite a moderating growth rate, earnings are likely to be higher 12 months from now. Because the direction of stock markets typically aligns with profit trends (beyond the near term), a further expansion in earnings in coming quarters should provide some degree of fundamental support for share prices.
Market corrections, while always unnerving, occur with regularity as a normal part of the investing cycle. Importantly, these phases of the cycle often provide opportunities for long-term investors to deploy capital at relatively more compelling prices that are beneficial to long-run outcomes.
While we believe investors should remain nimble in light of a wider range of outcomes for the economy and corporate earnings over the next 12 months, if our view that the current slowdown will likely unfold as a “growth scare” is correct, then valuations across a number of asset markets are starting to look quite appealing.
We think the bottom line is that risk-reward for equities and bonds look considerably more attractive than even a few months ago. This is markedly the case for riskier corporate credit such as high-yield bonds, whose volatility-adjusted expected return potential is arguably competitive with equities.

David Alan, owner of David Alan Caterers, was inspired to revamp his event space by the rise of microweddings.
Never heard of them? That's because they're a relatively new concept.
The wedding website The Knot describes microweddings as a full wedding — with vows and a reception — just with a smaller guest list. During the pandemic, these smaller weddings expectantly (and in many cases due to necessity) became more popular.
The website New Jersey Bride points out that at microweddings, because the guest list is smaller, the couple may have more money to splurge for add-ons. There's even an entire wedding planning company called NJ Microwedding, based in Princeton, that specializes in Central Jersey weddings for 25 people or less.
With this newfound interest, Alan saw an opportunity to completely re-do his space to fit such events.
The room has been changed from an all-white 50s-style to what Alan calls “farmhouse glam," semi-inspired by his love of HomeGoods' decor.
“I always go into HomeGoods, and I’m like, ‘Let me buy everything in the store,’” he said. He pulled from its quirky yet chic aesthetic often found in the furnishings and decor when overhauling his East Hanover event space, called The Warehouse.
The Warehouse now has the look of a trendy, chic saloon. Rustic barn doors, a brown leather couch with curved arms and warm chandeliers in intricate old-school shapes give the space a quaint charm, in contrast to the often blank-slate look of most event spaces.
“I wanted it to be very cool and relaxing,” said Alan.
Alan is best known as a caterer through his main business David Alan Caterers. But, he also has a shop that sells prepared foods like salads, sandwiches and wraps called David Alan’s Marketplace.
The Warehouse is 2,000-square-feet and can hold about 60 people comfortably. It includes a 12-foot bar, a buffet and an open kitchen. The room also connects to another 2,000-square-foot space with more seating.
“There’s no hiding behind walls,” said Alan. “People love to see how things are made, and with this open kitchen they can.”
And, Alan said, microweddings at The Warehouse are typically affordable. The cost per guest is negotiable depending on what add-ons the client wants (including a DJ, higher-priced dishes and the like). But, he assures, “no one will ever walk away because of price.”
The Warehouse is at 12-16 Littell Road, East Hanover; 973-520-0533. Go to davidalanwarehouse.com more information.
New Jersey Brides lists the following North Jersey spots as venues that host microweddings.

According to the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy (SBA) there are about 30.2 million small businesses in the United States. That’s 99.7% of all businesses in the United States.
These 30.2 million small businesses have very few options when they consider transitioning to the cloud. Although they may need to adhere to the same compliance regulations as larger organizations, they are unable to due to the expensive options of a Private Cloud. They are forced to subscribe to a public cloud service which costs are difficult to predict from month to month.
What is the difference between Public and Private Cloud? Simply stated, Private cloud is a service that is fully controlled by your organization. The infrastructure, applications, and your data are all controlled and secured on your own private platform in the cloud. You are physically and logically isolated from other customers. Public cloud is a platform that hosts multiple customers on the same platform.
Imagine a private cloud as your own private house and public cloud as an apartment in a large building.
The biggest barrier to Private Cloud for many small businesses has always been the cost of entry. Many small businesses think they are unable to afford or manage their own private cloud, until now.
iQmedia provides Managed Private Cloud Services for the small business. We provide a secure managed private platform. This allows small businesses to adhere to compliancy regulations, data integrity, and cloud accessibility.
Our private platform allows businesses to migrate any application to the cloud. There is no need to change to a different “cloud App” …we take your existing applications and convert them to cloud apps for you.
For example, a 25-person law firm was considering migrating their Practice Management Software to the cloud. They were given a project quote by a software as a service provider for $45,000 to migrate the software to a new cloud platform. This did not include the monthly costs of the software and were told there is no guarantee that all the data could be migrated.
The law firm reached out to our iQmedia team, and we moved the existing Practice Management Software migration to our Private Cloud Platform at no cost. The application did not change, therefore there was no learning curve for the staff. The benefit of moving the legacy application to our platform was a seamless move over the weekend and little downtime for the organization. We also offer a flat monthly fee which allows them to predict monthly costs.
Here are other benefits of Managed Private Cloud?
So, if you think you can’t afford Private Cloud…think again!
Let us take you on our cloud journey.

Colliers on Monday said it secured leases for four tenants totaling 36,000 square feet of space at a 177,820-square-foot, Class A office building in East Hanover.
Located at 120 Eagle Rock, the building is now almost 90% occupied. Each lease is for five to 10 years, ensuring long-term stability for the building owner.
Colliers Executive Managing Director Samuel Horowitz represented ownership, Northeast Capital Group, in the transactions.
The property features an updated lobby and modern common areas, as well as other amenities, including a full-service café with outdoor seating, multiple conference rooms and a fitness center with weight/cardio machines and locker rooms. The three-story building also includes several leading coworking amenities. Additionally, there are nearly 600 parking spaces, on-site FedEx and mail drop boxes and 24-hour secure key card access with an after-hours security guard.
“We were pleased to work with Northeast Capital Group to capture the momentum and enthusiasm that has been rising for a return to the office,” Horowitz said. “The New Jersey office has been well on its way to recovery over the past year, and we expect the market will resume a positive momentum in the coming months.”
“The activity that we have seen at 120 Eagle Rock speaks to the quality of the building, the attentiveness of property management and the efforts of our brokers,” Joel Kiss, CEO, Northeast Capital Group, said. “We are pleased to welcome our new tenants as several companies in New Jersey begin to return to the office in earnest.”
The property is centrally located in eastern Morris County between exits 1 and 4 off of Interstate 280 with immediate access to Interstates 80 and 287.
Pillar Care Continuum was represented by Curtis Foster and Jerry Shifrin from Cushman & Wakefield. Kingdom Financial was represented by David DeMatteis and Mena Shehata from Cushman & Wakefield. Additionally, Eastgate Group was represented in-house, and Paris Ackerman was represented by Barbara Gross from Sheldon Gross Realty.

An iconic Route 10 office tower will be demolished next year along with several other buildings on the Novartis Corp. campus in East Hanover to be replaced with modern industrial office space.
Russo Development and Onyx Equities announced the purchase of 62 acres along Route 10 and Ridgedale Avenue from Novartis and plan to eliminate 900,000 square feet of vacant office buildings, including the corner office building with the corporation's logo on top.
Demolition will likely begin in the second quarter of 2022, said Ed Russo, CEO of Russo Development. Groundbreaking on two new buildings ranging between 300,000 and 500,000 square feet should take place before the end of 2022.
“We are excited to redevelop a portion of one of northern New Jersey’s premier sites into a first-class industrial project,” Russo said. "We appreciate the opportunity to work with East Hanover and Novartis as the company transforms its East Hanover campus to a more flexible and collaborative workplace design.”
The site was carved from the 202-acre campus of Novartis' U.S. headquarters, largely consisting of the land adjacent to Route 10 east and Ridgedale Avenue. Novartis will continue to occupy the remainder of the land.
The new development will be one of the largest new industrial projects in Morris County, Russo said. Planning Board approval was obtained in July. The selling price was not released.
Representing one of Morris County's largest employers, the highly visible building was topped by a large "Sandoz" sign for decades.
The Swiss global pharma giant acquired the property in the late 1940s after outgrowing its offices in New York and began construction on the first buildings there in 1950.
Sandoz became one of Morris County's leading employers when it opened its East Hanover research facility in 1964. It merged with Summit-based Ciba-Geigy in 1996 to form Novartis. The company still has 4,800 employees assigned to the East Hanover campus, and 16,000 statewide, a Novartis spokesperson said.
Additional buildings along the Ridgedale Avenue corridor also are slated for demolition.
While the office market has contracted over the last decade, the market for industrial space in Morris County and New Jersey is robust, Russo said. Most of the buildings included in the sale were unoccupied when the property went on the market last year and were vacated before closing, Russo said.
"Industrial space, especially modern industrial space, is so scarce right now," Russo said. "The vacancy rates are almost zero."
He said the new buildings are characterized by single stories with high ceilings "that can accommodate uses that a traditional office building cannot, such as warehousing, R&D, manufacturing, data centers. Our company has built 10 data centers over the past 20 years."
“This project reflects Onyx’s strong track record of repositioning large corporate campuses and growing industrial pipeline, and will bring new jobs, businesses and commerce to East Hanover,” said Onyx Equities managing principal John Saraceno Jr. “Morris County is a jewel for commercial uses of all types because of its extensive highway system and pool of highly qualified, skilled labor.”
"There's great fiber optic and power infrastructure in the immediate vicinity," Russo added. "You have access to a great employment base."
The 202-acre property was assessed at $425 million this year, producing $10.2 million in property taxes for the township, tax records show.
“Novartis has been making changes to our East Hanover campus over the past few years to create a more flexible workplace design that provides our associates with more choice in where they work, both onsite and offsite, and fosters greater collaboration," th Novartis spokesperson said. "As this design is a more efficient use of space, we need fewer buildings to accommodate our employees’ workspaces and have divested approximately 62 of the 202 acres on the East Hanover Campus.”
The demolition will be done incrementally and will not involve implosion or explosives, Russo said.
This is the second joint venture between Onyx Equities and Russo Development, which are currently building Vermella Woodbridge, a mixed-use project with 500 apartments and 23,000 square feet of retail space, on 26 acres in Woodbridge acquired from Hess Corp. in 2020.
In addition to East Hanover, Russo and its partners have more than 6 million square feet of industrial projects ranging from 200,000 to 3 million square feet planned in various communities including Montville, Mahwah, Kearny and Lyndhurst.
