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 Elmwood Park, 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 Elmwood Park, 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:

Elmwood Park, NJ (September 29, 2023) – Six people were hurt in an accident in Elmwood Park. Reports show the collision occurred on the morning of September 27 when a vehicle turned over on the Garden State Parkway.
Several responders were dispatched to the scene of the incident shortly after it occurred at around 10:24 a.m. on Wednesday. Sources say a vehicle overturned at Exit 157 going toward Fairlawn.

Unfortunately, the majority of them are also preventable and caused by the actions of negligent drivers.
Negligent driving can be displayed in several different ways, including distraction, fatigue, intoxication, and speeding. Right now, the most common types of driver negligence displayed among drivers in the state of New Jersey and throughout the United States are driver distraction and intoxication. Even though these two actions are some of the most preventable, they are also the most common among American drivers.
Every year, over 400,000 traffic collisions happen due to the actions of drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles. Additionally, over 30% of the national accident fatality rate can be attributed to intoxicated driving. Also, over 50% of the people who lose their lives in intoxicated driving accidents in the United States are intoxicated drivers themselves.

Crow Holdings Development, the development platform of Crow Holdings and one of the nation’s largest industrial developers, has broken ground for its state-of-the-art new 206,826-square-foot industrial property on the site of the former Marcal Paper factory in Elmwood Park, N.J.
Four years after fire ravaged the historic Bergen County mill, 1 Market Street will be transformed into a prominent logistics hub, able to accommodate companies seeking modern logistics space in one of the country’s tightest industrial markets.
With a highly visible location just off Exit 61 of I-80, the speculative new development will feature 40-foot clear ceiling heights, 32 loading docks, two drive-in doors, and parking for 56 trailers and 198 cars. The fully sprinklered facility will have 7-inch-thick concrete floors designed to accommodate heavy goods and machinery across the space, and feature a design that reflects the iconic architecture of the former manufacturing facility that once stood in its place.
Situated just 17 miles from Manhattan, 1 Market Street offers direct access via I-80 and I-95 to the largest consumer base in the United States. The facility is scheduled to be delivered in August of 2023.
“We are thrilled to begin building this state-of-the-art new facility that will transform the former Marcal site into one of the region’s most advanced logistics offerings,” said Clark Machemer, Crow Holdings Development’s Senior Managing Director for the Northeast region. “1 Market Street will not only create jobs and contribute to the growth of the county’s economy, but it will also provide much-needed logistics space in one of the country’s most land-constrained markets, delivering a bright new future for the town and this historic site.”
After a fire in 2019 destroyed 90 percent of the old Marcal factory, the site re-opened as a smaller plant a year later. Texas-based Crow Holdings Development acquired the 11.87-acre site in 2022 and, in a joint venture with Atlas Holdings, Marcal’s majority shareholder, expects to generate $34 million in economic activity and 140 short-term jobs during construction. Once complete, 1 Market Street will produce $630,000 in property tax payments to the county, Elmwood Park, and the borough school district and support the equivalent of 240 full-time jobs.
JLL, which handled the sale of the property, is serving as the exclusive agent for 1 Market Street. A team that includes David Knee, Chris Hile, Ignatius Armenia and Ryan Milanaik is marketing the property among e-commerce and logistics occupiers increasingly under pressure to move goods competitively and quickly.
“Despite macro-economic headwinds, the New Jersey industrial market remains resilient as 3PL’s, food and beverage, and consumer goods companies seek well-located, modern facilities in close proximity to the world’s major population hubs,” Knee said. “1 Market Street will reinvent a historic factory into an economic engine of the 21st century, generating jobs, contributing to the local tax base and meeting market demand for effective logistics solutions.”

Can you believe Hell’s Kitchen first aired in the US in 2005? Season 22 debuts on Fox on Sep. 28. The discrepancy between the number of seasons and years is because sometimes there are multiple seasons in one calendar year.
The new season, dubbed “The American Dream”, features 18 aspiring chefs, one of whom is from New Jersey. According to the show’s fan Wiki, it is 39-year-old Sandra Day, a lead catering chef from Elmwood Park.
If you’re unfamiliar, the series is hosted by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who created and appeared in the British series of the same name.
Each season, two teams of chefs compete for a job as head chef at a restaurant, while working in the kitchen of a restaurant set up in the television studio. A progressive elimination format reduces a field of contestants down to a single winner over the course of each season.
The show is known for its intense atmosphere and Ramsay's notoriously fiery temper. Ramsay is known for his scathing critiques of the chefs' cooking and his frequent use of profanity.
However, he is also known for his passion for food and his desire to help the chefs succeed.
Hell's Kitchen has been a critical and commercial success, and it has won numerous awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in 2007.
The show has also spawned a number of international spin-offs, including Hell's Kitchen UK, Hell's Kitchen Australia, and Hell's Kitchen Canada.
There is also a chef from Philadelphia, Dahmere Merriwether, a personal chef.
On Sep. 28, we’ll hear the iconic, “Open Hell’s Kitchen…”

Construction has topped out on the tallest building at 420 Carroll Street, a two-tower residential complex in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Domain Companies, the project consists of a 20-story, 224-foot-tall tower and 15-story sibling and will yield 360 units with 25 percent reserved for affordable housing, as well as 27,500 square feet of retail space, 7,700 square feet of “Gowanus Mix” space pursuant to the 82-block rezoning of the district, and a new public promenade along the Gowanus Canal. Studio Mainer is the interior designer, Scape is the landscape architect, and Mega Contracting Group is the general contractor for the development, which is rising from a trapezoidal plot bound by Carroll Street to the north, the Powerhouse Arts building and its parking lot to the south, and the Gowanus Canal to the west.
Photographs from last weekend show the reinforced concrete superstructures closing in on their final stories. Based on the pace of progress, topping out of the shorter sibling will likely occur by early June. Façade installation has yet to commence on either building, though metal stud frames are slowly enclosing the towers in preparation for the start of envelope work. King Contracting Group is in charge of installing the CMU, EIFS, and stone facade.
420 Carroll Street currently stands as the tallest building in the neighborhood, which is undergoing a dramatic transformation following its rezoning in November of 2021.
The updated rendering in the main photo previews the development looking northeast. The taller structure will rise from a podium with a landscaped terrace and feature a grid of white paneling framing floor-to-ceiling windows. The shorter building incorporates a similar fenestration texture, albeit with darker-hued façade panels, and features numerous terrace spaces across its setbacks and atop its flat parapet. The most notable design element is the inclusion of what appears to be a stained glass water tower, like the famous art installation atop the roof of 20 Jay Street in DUMBO, on an upper setback of 420 Carroll Street’s taller tower.
The complex will also feature a gently sloped boardwalk lined with wooden railings that wraps around the southwestern corner of the property. Further inland are new trees and landscaping, ADA-accessible ramps, stone seating, multi-tiered lawns, and retail frontage nestled between the buildings.
Residential amenities will include coworking space, a lounge, multiple outdoor spaces, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and bike storage. The nearest subway is the R train at the Union Street station to the east along 4th Avenue.
420 Carroll Street is aiming for LEED Platinum certification and is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2025, as noted on site.
