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 Finesville, 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 Finesville, 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:

At long last, the Phillipsburg Union Train Station will reopen its doors and expose visitors to the glorious history of what was once one of the Northeast’s most important transient junctions.
The Friends of the New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center announced it will host a ribbon cutting to officially dedicate the former train station as a museum at 5:30 p.m. on June 16 at 178 S. Main St.
Tickets to attend the grand opening are priced at $100 per person, with all proceeds going to further restoration efforts of the site, organizers said. A limited number of tickets are available.
Visit www.friendsnjthc.org to buy tickets or donate to restoration of the Phillipsburg Union Station.
Efforts to restore and reopen the historic site have been 25 years in the making, organizers said.
“We are proud to have been a part of this restoration project, we believe in giving back to the community, and this was a great opportunity for us to make a positive impact,” said Aaron Coleman, owner of Platinum Star Cleaning, who spearheaded the completion of the restoration project.
“This building is not only a piece of our community’s history, but it’s also an important part of our country’s railroad history,” Coleman said.
Coleman is probably best known for organizing last year’s Phillipsburg Railroad Festival, which drew hundreds from across the region in its first year to celebrate Phillipsburg Union Train Station’s centennial anniversary.
He plans to bring the festival back again this year to become a regular, annual event on Sept. 23.
The grand opening of the Union Train Station museum on Friday will feature some valuable presentations on transportation and the station’s history. Dozens of artifacts collected by historians over many years will also be showcased at the museum and offer visitors the chance to learn the history of how the small border/railroad town of Phillipsburg played a part in developing the region’s role as a major transportation hub.
As part of the grand opening event, attendees will see the main floor has been restored to its original design and layout. New molding and partitions have been added to mimic the site’s original design and the original ticket windows, counters, waiting room benches and pink marble bathrooms were all rebuilt. Phillipsburg High School Marching Band will also perform.
Volunteers cleared out more than 40 yards of garbage to get the museum ready for the reopening, Coleman said.
“It is a testament to what can be accomplished when the community comes together to work toward a common goal,” said Phillipsburg Mayor Todd Tersigni.
Phillipsburg Union Train Station opened in 1914. It was designed by Frank Nies, an architect who produced many of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad (DL&W) train stations now preserved as historic landmarks by the state and federal registries.
His design of the Phillipsburg station, however, stands out as an unusual example of his work, as the two-and a half-story, three-bay brick building follows early 20th century Prairie-style architecture, Coleman said.
“We hope that this museum will be a source of pride for the community and a destination for visitors from near and far,” President of the Friends of the New Jersey Transportation Heritage Center Tom Hellyer sad, “We are excited to share the history of the town and the importance of the railroad with everyone who visits.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony will also coincide with several other events also happening in Phillipsburg over Father’s Day weekend, including the Phillipsburg Ole Town Festival weekend (opening no June 17), the opening of Delaware River Excursions on June 17 and the launch of the Phillipsburg Open Air Market on June 18 and the opening of the more than 200-year-old Roseberry House, located at 540 Warren St., on June 17.
“It’s going to be a busy weekend,” Coleman said.
Here’s a schedule of what’s planned for the Ole Town Festival weekend:
4:30 p.m. Launch of Audio Walking Tour along South Main Street (free). Starts at Riverside Way Parking Lot.
5:30 p.m. Grand Opening: Phillipsburg Union Train Station
6:30 p.m. Ice-cream social with Phillipsburg Railroad Historians (free). Featuring miniature train rides, museum visit and various collections.
10 a.m. Delaware River Excursions opening

12 p.m. Philipsburg Union Tower and Union Station Tour (free)
10 a.m. Trolley Service to Phillipsburg Open Air Market (free). Featuring music, crafters and local artisans.
10 a.m. Delaware River Excursions

The bulk of the Finesville Dam has been torn down, 261 years after the original dam was built for an iron forge.
What was removed was a cast-concrete dam last re-constructed in the early 1950s, according to Beth Styler Barry, Musconetcong Watershed Association executive director.
The dam’s removal opens up the Musconetcong River from the confluence of the Delaware River to the Hughesville Dam, a run of about 4.5 miles, and is expected to mitigate flooding in the immediate area and attract native fish species.
Of the 109-foot width, 10 feet remain adjacent to each riverbank in a nod to the historic nature of the dam and the integrity of nearby structures on land. The dam was about 20 feet upstream of the Mount Joy Road steel-truss bridge in the hamlet of Finesville. The river forms the boundary between Holland Township in Hunterdon County and Pohatcong Township in Warren County.
The removal is costing about $200,000. The association is fronting the money and will be reimbursed by grants from the Natural Resource Conservation Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
On Nov. 18 the only work that remained was bank stabilization and grading, said Styler Barry. The Finesville dam is the third dam removed in recent years from the Musconetcong; the Gruendyke and Seber dams no longer block the river in Hackettstown. In addition, the remnants of the one-time Riegelsville dam are no more.
The association doesn’t initiate removals, Styler Barry pointed out, owners do — usually because they can’t or won’t invest in repairs and are worried about the liability.
Finesville Dam owner James Grodon first came to the association four years ago, Styler Barry said.
Money is usually available for a removal, she added, because "many organizations are looking to restore the nation's rivers. No one will help you fix it up and keep it in place." In a 2009 dam removal feasibility study by Princeton Hydro engineers, it was said that the work was "critical in the reestablishment of migratory fish passage on the Musconetcong River" and "vital in restoring the ecological functions and values of a true riparian stream."
The study also said that removal would remove a dangerous hydraulic jump immediately downstream of the spillway. “This has proven lethal as was the case in August 2003 when a kayaker drowned in the hydraulic,” Princeton Hydro said.
Styler Barry said that dam increased flooding in the adjacent area because it created a dam pool in the natural floodplain. “The water used to be 8-9 feet deep,” she said on Nov. 18. “Now it’s four feet deep.”
Some residents worry that the project will cause their wells to run dry. “We don’t think that’s going to happen or we would not have removed the dam. Exactly as much water will pass that point with or without the dam,” said Styler Barry.
To try to address fears that the lack of a dam pool will impact older, more shallow wells, the watershed association installed its own shallow test wells and will monitor them.
Other criticism came from fishermen who liked to drop a line in the dam pool. It created a habitat similar to a lake and “was not a great habitat for trout or species native to rivers,” said Styler Barry.
“Anywhere there’s a dam the temperature of the water goes up and the oxygen goes down. Trout, especially, like a lot of oxygen and a cold stream.”
One species she said will move elsewhere now, she added, is Canada geese. “They’re a good example of a species that shouldn’t feel comfortable on the Musconetcong.”

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Not only is today International Women’s Day, but it is shared with the Town of Phillipsburg’s day of incorporation.
According to the town website, “Phillipsburg was first organized as a township in 1851, and at that time included Lopatcong, which was not set off until March 8, 1861, when Phillipsburg was incorporated as a town. An addition was made from Lopatcong to Phillipsburg in 1903.”
When you want to learn more about the town, go to nearly any street in your neighborhood or find one of the many books talking about the railroads of New Jersey, the Morris Canal, the Lenni Lenape Indian Tribe, and books written documenting the history of many homes in town on the historic registry. Each one has a story. For example, the First Mayor was Charles Sitgreaves. Sitgreaves Street sound familiar? Sitgreaves was a major commandant in the New Jersey State militia, Member of the State general assembly from 1831 to 1833 and served in the State senate 1851 to 1854. He also served as city councilman from 1834 to 1835.

Many streets are named for residents from over 100 years ago. While the town website details much of the chronology, our town history dates back further than the incorporation. Many of us with family in the area for generations have our ancestry traced back to the 1700s and have family buried in the local cemeteries, long before the town was formally incorporated.
In the decades before the formation of the Phillipsburg Area Historical Society, several groups of individuals preserved the history of Phillipsburg and its neighboring municipalities and townships. They launched projects such as the town’s 50th and 100th-anniversary celebrations, the Soldiers and Sailors memorial, and the formation of the free public library. This collection of like-minded people eventually organized into a historical society that met regularly for many years and still exists today. To learn more or to join, contact the Historical Society.
The Phillipsburg Area Historical Society has published two Days of Yore drinks to toast to Phillipsburg. Try Milk Punch, or the Chatham Artillery Punch circa 1791, served to President George Washington from their website.
We are preparing a series of historical reflections to digitize and credit the collection of works published by Ronald W. Wynkoop, Sr. in his Photographic Albums of Old-Time Easton and Phillipsburg. The Centennial Photo in today’s story is one of these documented photos, which just seemed like the perfect photo to say Happy Birthday Phillipsburg.
