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 Great Meadows, 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 Great Meadows, 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:

For Joan Kimmel, raising her children as a single mother has been the most important thing in her life. A 56-year-old nursing student at Warren County Community College, she credits WCCC with giving her the tools to emerge from a difficult past and move toward a brighter future as a college graduate.
With three children and no college degree, 25 years of her life were spent doing what it took to make ends meet, working at a ShopRite supermarket, a sandwich shop, and as an aide for handicapped children. “I guess you could say survival was my career,” said Kimmel. All the while, she stressed to her daughter and two sons that education was the key to, as Kimmel puts it, “not ending up like their mother, working non-stop and never getting ahead.”
Once her children finished college, their success inspired her to finally take that step for herself, and pursue higher education. Choosing Warren County Community College, she decided to enroll in the R.N. program and has never looked back.
“There was so much support and help available, not only from the staff, but my peers were also very accepting and supportive as well,” said Kimmel, a WCCC Foundation scholarship recipient. “It was the best decision I could have made for myself at just the right time.”
The nursing program at WCCC is considered among the best in New Jersey. Graduates of the program often gain high salaried positions at medical facilities in Warren County and elsewhere. When Kimmel graduates next May, she hopes to be one of those well paid nurses. And she'll know it was worth the time and effort, for sure.
Handling the workload was certainly a challenge for Kimmel, who continues to work full-time in addition to her studies, but over time, she has come to realize that her mission is without-a-doubt attainable. “Classes have been challenging, but my self-esteem has improved,” said Kimmel. “The overall feeling of accomplishment is one I wouldn't trade.”

A Warren County elementary school will soon close, but a parent’s petition is asking the school board to reconsider which one it should be.The Great Meadows Regional School District...
The Great Meadows Regional School District decided in March that Liberty Elementary in Liberty Township should be the one to shut down at the end of the school year. Its 207 students will instead go the district’s other elementary school three miles away. That school, Central Elementary, shares a campus with the district’s middle school in Independence Township.
The district’s decision was based on logistics and funding. But Amanda Volker-Loguidice thinks they made the wrong call.
The mom of two from Liberty Township started an online petition to get the board to revisit its vote. After five days, it had about 200 supporters toward its goal of 1,000.
In a letter submitted to the school board at its most recent meeting, Volker-Loguidice says that the approximately 100-year-old Central Elementary is the older of the two schools by 50 years, and she questions the management of asbestos in the building.
“It is at the request of a significant portion of the parents within the Great Meadows Regional School District that the Board of Education revisit the vote of which school to close,” she wrote in the letter also sent to lehighvalleylive.com. “You were elected on the basis of trust in judgement, and we expect you to vote with the health and safety of our children in the forefront of your consciousness.”
Great Meadows has contemplated streamlining its facilities since at least 2017, when declining enrollment and tax revenue led to studies of its operations, according to Superintendent David Mango, whom the district shares with neighboring Hackettstown. It became more urgent when the state recently proposed aid cuts, Mango said in a December newsletter.
Mango did not respond to a call for comment about the petition or Volker-Loguidice’s letter.
Great Meadows is not the only Warren County school district losing an elementary school. Belvidere’s Third Street Elementary will also close at the end of the school year, following a school board vote in March.

What would you give to be in the same room as your idol? How about to perform with them? Recently, four local gymnasts got to do just that, as they were given the opportunity to perform in the opening number for the Kellogg's Tour of Champions. Giant Gymnastics coach Linda Lebo organized a group outing to the show, which was open to families in both Giant locations in Hackettstown and Lafayette.
Giant Gymnastics had 57 people from their two locations attend - because of their large numbers. Because of the large number of tickets sold, the Kellogg's tour invited four of the gymnasts to partake in the event. Madison Beaumont of Oxford, Kelly Cardell of Great Meadows, and Olivia Sabol of Phillipsburg are all members of the Hackettstown Garden Gators team, and were chosen for the honor. Morgyn Witt, a Newton resident, is a member of the Lafayette Gators team and was chosen to represent their Lafayette Gators team.
Sabol, 9, has been on the team competing for two years, and been taking gymnastics since she was 3. Kelly, 10, started gymnastics at age 4. She started Junior Gators at age 5 and Level 4 USAG at 6-years-old. Beaumont has been in gymnastics since 2004, and has competed since 2004. She is currently a gold level in USAIGC.
Witt, 9 now, started gymnastics in the parent/toddler class when the gym was still Schutz gymnastics, and has been taking classes at Schutz and now Giant, since them. She has been on the Lafayette Garden Gators USAIGC competitive team since they opened this second location a year and a half ago.
The girls all arrived four hours early to practice the number on the gym floor, get fitted for the leotards they were to wear and be ready to go at show time. They performed with gymnasts from around the state to "Let it Grow" by Ester Dean, and during the number, the USA Gymnasts- including the Fierce Five's Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas, Alexandra Raisman and McKayla Maroney- joined them. "Morgyn was glued to the edge of her seat all night, amazed at the site of all the routines and dances the gymnasts performed. And for days after, she was on a cloud about performing there on the floor, as the the USA team walked right by her, or seeing them warm up on the bars while they were rehearsing. It's an experience she, and I, will never forget," said grateful mom, Margaret Witt.
Giant Gymnastics, with two locations in Hackettstown and Lafayette, can be reached by finding them online at giantgymnastics.com and by calling 908-850-3746 or 973-579-9400.
