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 Edgewater, 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 Edgewater, 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:

New Jersey residents have until Sept. 30 to provide input on proposed updates to the rules for the state's legal marijuana marketplace from the Cannabis Regulatory Commission.
Todd Polyniak, a partner at Parsippany-based Sax who heads the cannabis practice there, has been analyzing the 325-page document and said the new, impending regulations run the gamut of what he would call a true cannabis industry in the Garden State.
"You can go from growing it to manufacturing it to wholesaling it to distributing it, and then finally selling it in retail or delivering it to a final customer," Polyniak said.
The delivery aspect is one that advocates have been waiting for, and comes alongside new provisions on wholesalers which are both part of reformulated classes of licenses.
Polyniak said there is also an understanding that "good faith" efforts will be made by those who receive licenses to employ and engage professionals who fall into their social equity class, as the CRC continues to consider social equity a priority in reviewing applications.
"They're trying to say you need to do more than just say you did this, you need to demonstrate what process you went through to make sure that we're giving people the benefit of being used by you," Polyniak said.
But he said the same dilemma still exists from before these new rules were presented: Those who garner licenses may not be able to do anything with them if they don't have the cash to move their plans forward.
And for each conditional license, the clock is ticking.
"I think the state still needs to come through with some type of way of funding these startups, especially the social equity startups," Polyniak said. "They have 120 days plus 45 days to actually execute on that conditional license and convert it into an annual license. So that's not a whole lot of time to get everything done."
Polyniak did highlight one other condition of the new rules, a per-ounce excise fee that will be collected from cultivators with the intention of funding future social equity clauses.
The CRC said the proposal also covers safe-use information, waste management, and advertising and promotion.
Those who wish to register comment can do so through the CRC's website.

Time to roll out the green carpet.
Actor and rapper Ice-T will soon open a recreational cannabis dispensary in Jersey City after he and his Playboy Playmate business partner secured approval from the city’s Cannabis Control Board.
The Medicine Woman is slated to open later this year in a 5,000-square-foot retail space on Tonnelle Avenue, just a few miles from Midtown, Manhattan, and will feature “the best of New Jersey cannabis brands,” the company said in a news release.
“I’ve dedicated my life and career to giving back and paving the way for minorities. As a New Jersey native, I’m excited for the opportunity legalization offers our community, and I look forward to ushering in a new era for cannabis in the state,” Ice-T, best known for his role in “Law & Order,” said in a news release.
“I’ve partnered with my friend of over 25 years, Charis B who is an authority in cannabis and founder of The Medicine Woman to ensure a premium experience for our customers and community.”
Ice-T, who was born Tracy Lauren Marrow in Newark, owns a home in Edgewater but told the board Jersey City would be a better location for the budding business, NJ.com reported.
“There’s only one street there in Edgewater, that’s why I kind of voided them out. I said ‘Let’s go to Jersey City, my neighbor.’ I’m here every night and going out, I love Jersey City,” Ice-T said during the Monday meeting last week.
Charis Burrett, Ice-T’s business partner and Playboy Playmate, first opened Medicine Woman in California and told the board she wants people to have a safe place to buy legal weed.
While Ice-T noted he got into the pot business because it’s “lucrative,” the business has plans to give back to a slew of non-profit organizations, including the Last Prisoner Projet, the Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation for Cancer Prevention and the Jersey City Mural and Arts Program, the outlet reported.
“My brand is honesty, nobody starts a business thinking about social impact, they start a business because it’s lucrative, that’s why,” Ice-T told the board.
“But it’s lucrative enough to give back. It’s lucrative enough that you should want to help the community in all those things.”

For a view of the New York City skyline that seems as if it was plucked straight from the opening credits of a movie, there are few places better to visit than Edgewater, NJ. But this little strip of land on the west bank of the Hudson River boasts of so many more must-visit stops beyond its ferry terminal. Below, you will find a guide on how to make the most of your time on a day trip to one of Jersey’s most scenic riverside towns, from places to grab food and ways to pass the time. And, of course, as no Edgewater travel guide would be complete without it, the best spots to catch a glimpse of that iconic Manhattan cityscape.
Kick-off your day with breakfast at Brownstone Pancake Factory, a highly-rated diner on River Road. This family-owned establishment is so popular that it has expanded to include three branches since the conception of its original location in Jersey City in 1968.
Brownstone Pancake Factory operates on a no reservation basis. If you don’t want to miss your chance of grabbing a meal at this iconic Edgewater eatery, arrive as early as possible for better chances of beating the line. The restaurant fills up quickly but the expansiveness of its menu alone is worth the wait.
The diner offers a vast selection of all-day breakfast items but the real show-stealers are its namesake pancakes. Their iconic pancakes come in a variety of flavors and combinations you wouldn’t have known existed. From more savory options like Jersey Chicken and Cheddar to sweeter concoctions like their Fried Oreo Cheesecake, this restaurant does not hold back on presentation.
In dire need of a sugar rush to fuel the rest of your day? The Brownstone Pancake Factory has been featured in many magazines and news channels for its colorful, gravity-defying milkshakes. Their Instagram account routinely posts that week’s “Ultimate Insane Milkshake.” Past milkshakes included one topped with popcorn and caramel-drizzled Twinkies and another with a whole slice of chocolate fudge cake and M&Ms.
The desserts are nothing short of picture-worthy, but make sure to save space on your camera roll for the rest that Edgewater has to offer!
Sojo Spa Club, a towering building replete with nine year-round pools and an artificial waterfall, is a staple Edgewater attraction that is hard to miss. This Korean spa is spread out over four floors devoted to wellness and boasts facilities such as a Himalayan salt sauna, an ice room, and many more unique therapy rooms all with their own benefits.
The spa is a favorite of both Edgewater locals and tourists alike, with many agreeing that its best feature is the cinematic view it offers of the Hudson River and the New York skyline from its signature infinity pool, away from the noise and crowds.
Thinking of extending your stay in Edgewater, NJ? The spa club is conveniently connected to Hotel Sojo, a boutique hotel with rooms decorated in a minimalism-meets-contemporary-Eastern flair.
A five-minute walk away from Sojo Spa Club is Mitsuwa Marketplace, a Japanese mall that includes a grocery store and food court.
The marketplace is also home to the sought-after mochi donut from KAI Sweets, a must-try treat that combines the chewy texture of the mochi rice cake with the shape of a traditional ring donut. Other sweets to look out for are the authentic Japanese snacks from the Minamoto Kitchoan confectionary. Among their signature products is tsuya, a traditional Japanese pancake filled with sweet red bean paste. Another bestseller is the kingyo jelly, a clear grape jelly made to look like a fish bowl, complete with a miniature goldfish swimming inside.
With no shortage of places to shop and dine, Mitsuwa has something for everyone. Among its shops are a specialty store offering anime merchandise to a general store with items imported from Japan. Younger visitors are sure to enjoy the market’s indoor arcade.
If you find your sweet tooth has yet to be sated, you can enjoy a drink by the waterside at the neighboring Umacha, located just behind Mitsuwa.
On colder days, you can sit inside this bubble tea cafe’s warm and stylishly decorated interior, or enjoy the breeze outdoors and take pictures on the deck. The cafe’s romantic arch trellis makes this another Instagram-worthy Edgewater spot. After all that shopping and eating, Umacha is the perfect place to pause and soak in the view of the Hudson from up close.
If there’s still room in your stomach, don’t leave without trying Umacha’s signature drink: cheese cream boba tea made with their original cream cheese—a perfect blend of sweet and salty!
By the time evening rolls around, Manhattan should already be lit-up just in time for dinner. At The Yacht Club, you can dine on seafood against the backdrop of the New York City skyline.
One of the best things about The Yacht Club is its ambiance. The restaurant features an outdoor bar and patio open year-round and equipped with heating, so you can appreciate the elegant atmosphere to the fullest extent.
If you happen to be visiting on a Sunday, you can join the Sunday Lobster Feast. For $49, you can enjoy a two-course meal complete with dessert.
Finish with one of The Yacht Club’s specialty cocktails and cheers to a picture-perfect ending to a day well-spent.

Skylight Real Estate Partners has closed its second transaction in Edgewater, N.J., Commercial Observer can first report.
The firm has partnered with PCCP to acquire Riello, a 20-story apartment building at 99 Gorge Road, for $130 million. Institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management provided $112 million in acquisition financing for the deal.
The transaction, which closed March 24, is Skylight’s second in the town. Following the company’s formation last year, it made its market debut with the purchase of Infinity Edgewater, a 100-unit rental property, in November.
“We are continuing to assemble an attractive portfolio of value-add, multifamily properties in our core markets,” Andrew Miller, a founding partner at Skylight Real Estate Partners, said. “With our long-standing relationships with partners like PCCP, and our current development pipeline, we believe we are well-positioned for continued growth and expansion in 2022.”
Sitting in an easily accessible, prime location in Edgewater, Riello features views of the Hudson River as well as the New York City skyline. The property comprises 226 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, while building amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a sauna and a steam room, a pet run and a barbecue area.
In between the two Edgewater, N.J., deals, Skylight made another acquisition, this time in the Edgewater neighborhood of Miami. “We’re only buying in Edgewaters!” Miller joked in an interview with CO earlier this year.
In the same interview, Miller described Skylight’s first Edgewater, N.J., deal on its own merits, but said the draw to the town was also a New York recovery bet for the firm: “When the office buildings fill back up, on the West Side of Manhattan and throughout the borough, people are going to need a place to live,” he said.
“We’ve been tracking Edgewater, N.J. for a long time,” he said this week. “There’s a major disconnect between supply and demand. It’s a very supply-constrained market, and those who have developed in Edgewater historically had very tight ties to the town, so it’s difficult to break in and to own a piece of it. The accessibility into New York City is amazing through the Edgewater Ferry and the Weehawken Ferry, which are both under 10 minutes away from the property, and also get you into Manhattan in about 10 minutes. You’re then five minutes from Hudson Yards. So, it was a complete play off of the West Side and Hudson Yards.”
Miller went on to say he believes that supply-constrained markets along New Jersey’s Gold Coast, such as Hoboken and Edgewater, will experience outsized rent growth.
With the Riello acquisition now sealed, Skylight and PCCP plan on implementing a substantial value-add program at the property, which was built back in 2004. The new ownership is planning a full renovation that includes brand-new building amenities.
As the town’s name suggests, Riello sits close to the water’s edge, almost on a cliff. “So, it has unobstructed views of the water, starting at the lobby, all the way up the tower,” Miller said. “It’s a pretty unique asset. In order to build it, there was a lot of work that went into blasting rock and — based on where construction costs are today — to recreate this would be very challenging. So we feel like we’re buying it below replacement cost, and there’s a tremendous opportunity to upgrade the building.”
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Skylight Real Estate Partners through the acquisition of Riello,” Brian Haber, a senior vice president at PCCP, said in a statement. “This deal reflects our continued confidence in the Edgewater area, which remains a strong market with increasing demand.”
A JLL Capital Markets investment sales and advisory team led by Jose Cruz, Michael Oliver, J.B. Bruno, Steve Simonelli, Kevin O’Hearn and Mark Belenky represented Skylight and PCCP, as well as the property’s seller, Barings. JLL’s Michael Klein, Matthew Pizzolato, Gerard Quinn and Jake Moore negotiated the acquisition financing.
“We were excited to be a part of this one and help the Skylight Real Estate Partners and PCCP team continue to expand their portfolio in this area,” Pizzolato said. “This deal received tremendous interest from the lending community given the institutional sponsorship and their knowledge and proven track record to execute on this asset type in this submarket.”
