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 Franklin, 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 Franklin, 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:

PHILADELPHIA – Everyone loves quesadillas, the Tex-Mex version of a grilled cheese sandwich and a good option for someone looking to eat something other than a taco. It was probably one of the reasons why Eagles wide receiver Zach Pascal wanted to eat one.
However, one chicken quesadilla did not sit well with him, resulting in a stint in the hospital for food poisoning and Pascal losing a significant amount of weight and time on the field at training camp.
On Saturday, Pascal recounted what happened during the ordeal and how it impacted him.
“I guess there was some bad meat and some bad bacteria in there, so I had some bacteria in my stomach,” Pascal said. “But I feel good, and I’m now back out here practicing.”
Pascal added that he spent four days at a local hospital recovering from the ordeal, being stuck with his iPad to review the playbook and hoping the medicines would clear out the bad bacteria in his body. Pascal lost 16 pounds in the process when all was said and done.
Pascal said he is in the process of gaining the weight back and returning to full strength.
“At practice, it feels like my legs are back under me. I’ve been in the weight room getting my strength back. I’m still on the rise and still getting back, but I feel great today.”
Now that he is back at practice, Pascal will look to be another weapon for quarterback Jalen Hurts. The Eagles signed Pascal to a one-year deal after he caught 38 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns with the Indianapolis Colts last season. Pascal is familiar with head coach Nick Sirianni, being that Pascal entered the league with the Colts when Sirianni was the offensive coordinator.
In his brief time with the Eagles, Pascal has shown the ability to break in and out of routes fluidly and put himself in a good position to catch the ball, forcing the defender to either let him catch the ball or go over his back or through him, which would likely draw a penalty.
Pascal could also be an asset in three and four wide receiver formations. If defenses decide to keep their safeties back and either play Cover 2 or Cover 3, Pascal has the veteran knowledge of how to read where the soft spots are in the zone coverage, get the proper depth on the route, sit in the area, and secure the catch, something that is beneficial on third downs.

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor jogged out toward the sideline to get lined up for a play. With a black hoodie sticking out of his shoulder pads, Reagor got to his spot, leaned a little forward into his stance, and looked down the line of scrimmage at the ball, waiting for it to be snapped. Reagor was getting snaps with the first-team offense for a second straight practice Thursday, something the Eagles had planned when they selected him 21st overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Unfortunately for Reagor and the Eagles, he was with the unit because of an ailment bothering Quez Watkins Tuesday and a groin injury to DeVonta Smith that kept him out practice Thursday.
After collecting 64 catches for 695 yards and three receiving touchdowns in the first two seasons of his career, Reagor finds himself as a second-team wide receiver, battling for a roster spot.
Reagor has started camp with a strong performance, catching most of the passes thrown his way, including a 70-yard catch and run for a touchdown. Head coach Nick Sirianni said Reagor reported to camp in shape and was ready to compete for a job, contrasting to how he started camp last year.
“He’s working to get better every day, and I see improvements,” Sirianni said. “He’s making plays when there are opportunities. We talk to him a lot about him not going to get 11 chances a game like he did at TCU, but if he gets three, he has to take advantage of those three and not can’t leave them on the field.”
Want to bet on the NFL?
Wide receiver is not the only position Reagor is fighting to keep. Reagor, who has one career punt return for a touchdown, is competing with undrafted free agent Britain Covey, running back Kenneth Gainwell, and wide receiver Quez Watkins for the return job. Reagor averaged 7.3 yards per return last season but struggled to cleanly secure punts, including one in the wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
There are still ways to use Reagor in this current offense. Reagor can still run jet sweeps, something he did when he was with TCU. Reagor could also be used on bubble screens and clear-out routes to open things underneath. The thing about Reagor has been his ability to be consistent playing wide receiver. Reagor has shown he can make the difficult one-handed catch along the sideline but later come back and drop an easier pass.
The Eagles’ roster construction could play a factor if Reagor remains. The Eagles could decide to keep an additional cornerback or lineman, leaving Reagor perilously close to being cut. One thing that Reagor has in his favor is his contract. According to Over The Cap, Reagor would count $2.4 million against the Eagles’ salary cap, making it very likely that Reagor will get every opportunity to prove himself.

The Franklin, a new luxury rental building in Bergen County, has officially launched leasing in the tree-lined borough of Franklin Lakes.
Developed by Adoni Property Group, which tapped Manhattan-based the Marketing Directors as its exclusive marketing and leasing agent, the Franklin offers a mix of floorplans ranging from one-bedroom to two-bedroom duplexes in a distinctive, four-story building.
Monthly rents for the homes start at $3,225 and are available with immediate occupancy. The residences are offered with limited-time grand opening incentives that include up to two months of free rent.
“We are excited to introduce the Franklin to a location often described as one of the best places to live in New Jersey,” Sonny Adoni, CEO of Adoni Property Group, said. “This building is truly one-of-a-kind in northern Bergen County. It has been meticulously designed to provide both the intimacy and privacy of a boutique offering and a comprehensive suite of amenities that’s unusually large for a building of this size. The result is an exceptional lifestyle experience that should resonate with area residents scaling down from larger homes who want to remain in Franklin Lakes, and those looking to relocate to this desirable location.”
Floorplans at the Franklin are lined with designer features to create elegant living spaces. Homes offer 9-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring, chef-inspired kitchens with a quartz waterfall island, full-height subway tiled backsplash, full-sized GE stainless steel appliances, five-burner gas range with griddle and an oven hood and two-tone soft close cabinetry. Bathrooms feature custom vanities, glass tub/shower doors, chrome Moen faucets, quartz countertops and mosaic tiled backsplash. Select homes also provide Juliet balconies or terraces.
“Offering well-sized floorplans with at least 1.5 baths in every home, these apartments provide a great amount of living space and comfort,” Jaqueline Urgo, president of the Marketing Directors, added. “The lengthy list of luxury interior finishes is on par with what’s found in the many estate homes that dot the area and create contemporary apartments that fulfill a range of lifestyle needs.”
Franklin Lakes is a suburban community with a countryside setting that’s still near many everyday conveniences, shopping and transportation. Situated just 25 miles outside Manhattan, the borough offers New Jersey Transit bus service to New York City’s Port Authority in under an hour. Minutes away is rail service into Manhattan at nearby NJ Transit stations. Interstate 287 also passes through the borough, providing quick access to the close by business and entertainment centers of Bergen and Morris counties and upstate New York.

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles cornerback Darius Slay looked across at wide receiver Quez Watkins, taking his initial read steps to try to discern what route the third-year wide receiver was going to run during the seven-on-seven drill at the NovaCare Complex Saturday.
When Slay saw Watkins begin to go deep down the sideline, he began to match steps with Watkins, keeping up stride for stride. When quarterback Jalen Hurts released the ball, Slay started to see its trajectory, thinking he had a chance to get an interception. Slay got in front of Watkins, grabbed the ball, and landed on his back, all while keeping both feet inbounds to complete the interception.
The defense looked stout again through most of the practice, with Slay’s interception being one of the highlights. The defensive line was again active, getting pressure on the Eagles quarterbacks.
The Eagles have placed more of an emphasis on turnovers this season. The Eagles finished 27th in turnovers created last season (16) and 21st in interceptions (12). Most successful playoff teams are in the upper echelon of turnover differential, something the Eagles finished even in. The more turnovers the defense can create, the better the offense has to put points on the board, especially if they operate on short fields.
Another Eagles player diagnosed with a concussion; Cornerback returns
Running back Boston Scott was the latest player to be diagnosed with a concussion, forcing him to sit out practice Saturday. During Thursday’s red-zone drill, quarterback Gardner Minshew threw a pass to Scott over the middle of the field. Scott caught the ball and took a few steps, and let up as he crossed the goal line. Safety Marcus Epps came over and delivered a blow to Scott. Scott remained on the field for a few seconds before slowly getting up.
Scott joins tackles Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard as players who are out because of a head injury. Mailata and Dillard observed practice from the sideline, appearing to be trending in the right direction. Wide receivers DeVonta Smith (groin) and Greg Ward (toe) remained sidelined, along with tight end Grant Calcaterra (hamstring)
The Eagles were able to get one player back on the field. Cornerback Mac McCain was limited in practice as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
Here are some other notable items from Saturday’s practice:
-Wide receiver A.J. Brown continued to have a good camp, catching a pass from Hurts across the field while stiff-arming cornerback Kary Vincent. Brown also made a good leaping attempt on a ball down the sideline against Slay but dropped the pass, appearing frustrated with himself after the play. Hurts and Brown’s timing on specific routes is getting noticeably better.
-Cornerback Josh Jobe had two straight pass breakups, one on wide receiver Deon Cain and the other on wide receiver John Hightower. Jobe’s arm length helped him dislodge the ball. The undrafted free agent appears to be getting more acclimated to the system and letting his talent show.
-When the first team offense and defense were working on one field, the second and third units were on the other. Quarterback Reid Sinnett threw a good ball to Devon Allen, who tracked the ball down for a nice catch over a defensive back.
-Deon Cain flashed again. This time, Minshew threw a pass intended for Cain. The ball was deflected by cornerback James Bradberry and looked as if it was going to fall to the ground. Cain kept his concentration and made the catch.
The Eagles will have another practice Sunday. This time, they will be holding their only public open practice at Lincoln Financial field beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets for the event are $10, with the proceeds going to the Eagles Autism Foundation.
