Let's Talk!

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen
 HRT For Men Greenwich, NJ

What Causes Menopause?

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.

Depression

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:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

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

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:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

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

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 Greenwich, 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.

Weight Gain

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?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.

Low Libido

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 Greenwich, 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.

 Hormone Replacement Greenwich, NJ

Vaginal Dryness

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.

Fibroids

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

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 Greenwich, NJ

What is Sermorelin?

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.

 HRT Greenwich, NJ

Benefits of Sermorelin

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.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Hormone Replacement Greenwich, NJ

What is Ipamorelin?

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.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Greenwich, NJ

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Sauce Gardner was relaxing on the plane ride from the NFL draft in Las Vegas to his new playing home in New Jersey when the magnitude of what was happening really started to sink in.

The former Cincinnati cornerback was the No. 4 overall pick by the New York Jets. And sitting there with him were wide receiver Garrett Wilson, the 10th overall selection out of Ohio State, and Jermaine Johnson, who went 26th out of Florida State.

They were a trio of friends and first-rounders — on their way to help turn around the fortunes of a frustrated franchise.

“We were really like, it was meant for all of us to be on the same team,” Gardner said Saturday.

Gardner and Johnson trained together in Texas leading up to the draft in April, along with eventual Jets selections Breece Hall (second round) and Micheal Clemons (fourth round), among others.

"For us to all end up on the same team is like a blessing," Gardner said. “I don't think I'm just like a good luck charm, but it's like every team I end up on, there's always something unique about it.”

Like his Bearcats team that made it to the College Football Playoff last season for the first time in school history before losing to Alabama in the Cotton Bowl.

“This program, it reminds me of Cincinnati a lot," Gardner said. "And I think this year, we're going to make a huge change.”

The Jets and their fans are counting on it.

New York has gone 11 seasons without making the playoffs, the longest active postseason drought in the league. The Jets are coming off a 4-13 campaign, the first under coach Robert Saleh, but their impressive draft haul had the organization giddy.

It marked just the second time in franchise history during the modern draft era — since 1970 — the Jets had more than two picks in the opening round and first since they had a record four selections in 2000.

Six picks after general manager Joe Douglas took Gardner to fill a massive need in the secondary, he gave quarterback Zach Wilson an explosive playmaker in Garrett Wilson. He wasn't done, though, swinging a deal with Tennessee to get back into the first round to take Johnson to boost the pass rush.

Now all three players will be bonded forever — by high hopes that their Jets legacy will be marked by lots of winning.

“I know none of us have an issue with those expectations,” Johnson said.

There's a certain swagger with which all three carry themselves. Gardner's diamond-encrusted “SAUCE” medallion on draft night was a clear display of that. Their confidence on the field belies their rookie status.

“We all have the same mindset of just being the best teammates we can,” Johnson said. "You know, we’re rookies, so we've got to earn our keep, especially to earn it to have a voice on this team. And that comes with doing things the right way, going 110% and being a good teammate.

“So, I mean, we’re all on that track and we’ll see what happens.”

So far, so good through four camp practices.

Gardner has been solid while rotating with Bryce Hall in the competition for a starting spot opposite D.J. Reed.

“I mean, that boy's a dog, he's really a dog,” said Garrett Wilson, who has matched up against Gardner several times this summer. “He's really handsy, good with his hands, and puts himself in the right scenario a lot of the time."

Wilson has been one of the early standouts on offense, making several impressive catches and building quick chemistry with his quarterback.

“He's very, very athletic,” Saleh said. “He’s got unbelievable body control and power. He’s got great hands. He’s explosive in and out of his breaks. He’s very wiggly in and out of his breaks. He is talented.”

Johnson is working in a rotation on the Jets' deepest and arguably best unit, a defensive line that includes seasoned veterans such as Quinnen Williams, Carl Lawson and John Franklin-Myers and youngsters such as Johnson, who had 12 sacks last season and was the ACC defensive player of the year.

“He's phenomenal, bro,” Williams said of Johnson. “He's a very vocal guy, a very explosive guy, a very talented guy. ... He's an animal, bro.”

It's still just practice, of course. And there are still a few weeks before even the first preseason game.

But Gardner, Wilson and Johnson have been passing the early tests — while leaning on each other as fellow first-rounders.

“It takes a lot of pressure off because you have people to talk to that are going through the same things you’re going through, the same expectations,” Wilson said. "When you’re a first-round pick, you’re expected to come in and make an impact right away.

"I feel like we’ve been holding each other to high standards. But also we know that this is all new to each of us and we’re able to bounce things off of each other, talk to each other. And it’s been really good, for sure.”

Taylor knows his role with the Giants is to back up Jones

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Tyrod Taylor signed with the New York Giants, knowing the only way he would start at quarterback would be if Daniel Jones played poorly or got hurt.

It's as simple as that for the well-traveled 32-year-old who is entering his 12th NFL season.

Jones has been the Giants' starter most of the past three seasons and he enters his fourth season and first under Brian Daboll as the No. 1 on the depth chart in training camp.

“I came in here ready to compete and that’s what the nature of this game is,” Taylor said Wednesday. “There is only one quarterback that can play, and you have to be ready at any time when that opportunity presents itself. I’m working each and every day just trying to get better and ready for the opportunity that presents itself.”

Since camp opened last week at the Giants' facilities in the Meadowlands, Taylor has been working primarily with the second-team offense. Jones, the No. 6 overall pick in 2019, has worked with the ones.

Like Jones, Taylor is learning a new offensive system, one that features a lot of pre-snap motion.

“I think coach has done a great job of mixing different concepts but also allowing guys to do what they are most comfortable with,” Taylor said. “That’s going out there and making plays.”

Taylor has rarely gotten a chance to play much, except for three seasons in Buffalo (2015-17). He got 43 of his 53 career starts with the Bills and threw 51 of his 59 career touchdowns.

Buffalo traded him to Cleveland in the spring of 2018, the same year the Bills drafted Josh Allen and hired Daboll as their offensive coordinator. It's also the year the Browns drafted Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.

Taylor started the first three games that season but lost his job after an injury in the third game.

Taylor spent the next two seasons with the Chargers and last year with Houston, starting six games. He signed a two-year, $11 million contract with the Giants in March.

Taylor admittedly didn't know the 25-year-old Jones well until he signed. He described Jones as a great competitor and friendly.

“Much respect for Daniel. The way he approaches his job each and every day and the way he goes out and leads,” Taylor said. “I think just the quarterback room as a whole, we all bring out the best in one another. Whether it’s in competitions, whether it’s in the weight room, whether it’s on the field. We tally up who has the best throws for the day. If you see our board of tallies it can get crazy, but much respect to Daniel.”

While Jones may have a better arm, Taylor is certainly more athletic. He dunked a football over the crossbar after running for a score last week.

Taylor has had his ups and downs in camp like Jones. He said his goal is to work on his weaknesses and helping teammates get through some of the dog days.

“Ultimately, it’s about leading, responding, and how you respond in tough circumstances each and every day,” he said. “It’s a grind from the quarterback’s perspective.”

NOTES: Center Jon Feliciano was limited for the second straight day after missing three days because of dehydration. ... NFL referee Alex Kemp was in camp with his crew on Wednesday. A new member of his crew is former Rams linebacker and now umpire Mike Morton. He is the only NFL official to win a Super Bowl. ... Sitting out practice with injuries were TE Ricky Seals-Jones, CB Rodarius Williams, RB Antonio Williams, T Matt Gono and WR Robert Foster.

Back to the Future: A Look At NJ’s Futuro Homes

There was a time when everyone in the world thought outer space was exciting–not just science types and “Star Wars” fans. Almost everybody loved the concept of space and the future.

There was a time when everyone in the world thought outer space was exciting–not just science types and “Star Wars” fans. Almost everybody loved the concept of space and the future. So, it’s not at all surprising that in 1968, when Dr. Jaakko Hildenkari was looking for someone to design his modern ski chalet that could be easily transported to remote locations, a futuristic design was selected. Matt Suuronen, a Finnish architect, was commissioned and in March of 1968, the Futuro House was unveiled to the world.

The History of Futuro Houses

The specs for the commission required a light weight cabin that was easily transportable through all kinds of terrain and to remote locations. Since oil prices were low, Suuronen used the materials of the day; petroleum-based construction products. The main construction was made of fiberglass reinforced plastic. Polyurethane insulation was used and the home featured an electric heating system which could go from -20 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit in just 30 minutes.

The standard home was 16 pieces bolted together positioned on a steel frame–a pre-fabricated dream. The finished homes were designed to be 26 feet in diameter and approximately 14 feet high. They could accommodate a cozy 8 guests. The original specs and so many more details can be found here, the ultimate source for all Futuro House information.

The Futuro Houses were originally manufactured by Oy Polykem Ab in Finland before being licensed globally. From 1968 to 1973, about 100 of the Futuro Homes were built worldwide. In 1973, the world-wide oil crisis affected the building materials cost and production of the Futuro Homes was ceased. These homes initially sold for $12,000 to $14,000. Now, if you can find them every once in a while, one will pop up for sale on the internet. In 2017, a woman in New Zealand was selling a very nice one for $290,000.

What Happened to the Homes (And Where to Find a Futuro House in NJ)

Of those approximately 100 homes, it appears that 63 remain world-wide. The Futuro House website actively maintains a list of all known houses still in existence. We are incredibly lucky to have two of them in our own backyard here in South Jersey.

The first Futuro House I visited was in Willingboro, NJ. It now sits just within the boundaries of Willingboro’s Mill Creek Park. I’ve heard it was once a bank in Lakewood. After that, it seems to have been moved to Village Mall in Willingboro. After that it was donated to Willingboro Township and relocated down the road to the park.. Initially, it was used as a guard station and finally as an office for the Recreation Dept. before it fell into its present state of disrepair. It now sits behind a fence in the park, a bittersweet reminder to those of us that loved the dawn of the age of space travel.

The Greenwich Futuro House is even more forlorn. It sits along Hancock Harbor Road, near a little marina. It wasn’t fenced off, so you could access the interior which was completely gutted. This one was originally brought to Woodbridge, NJ in 1972 as the “Sky Bank.” After that, it’s believed it wound up at Wildwood on Morey’s Pier before somehow being left along the shores here in Greenwich. The seagulls seem to be the Futuro House’ biggest fan as it sits forgotten by the Cohansey River.

Not all the remaining Futuro Houses have been left to elements. You can still rent one as a vacation home in WI. In Berlin, you can tour a restored home. A clever marketer turned one into an ice cream shop in IL. And in The Netherlands, you can visit a museum and see a Futuro Home in mint condition.

A Sign of the Times

Father of the Futuro House, Matt Suuronen, died on April 16, 2013 at the age of 79. It should be noted he also designed another prefab modular home–the Venturo. It’s safe to say that when he passed, the love and admiration for his creation lived on among a select group of aficionados of the unusual.

Space–the final frontier. We all know the words, and many feel the power and mystery behind that simple phrase. The Futuro House captures a moment in time. A time when the world felt full of possibilities and hope for the future. The optimism and drive for change in the ‘60s can all be seen reflected in the architecture of the era. The Futuro House epitomizes this moment. It could bring a tear to the eye now to see that promise and hope for the future sitting undisturbed in the woods or by the side of the road.

I’m choosing to see the return of these homes to nature as a positive change, providing a new habitat for wildlife, allowing the land to reclaim what it lost. For me, the Futuro Houses will always stand as a symbol of a time when we all thought the future was full of wonder and anything was possible.

N.J. weather: Record warmth to be followed by nasty storm with gusty winds, rain, possible power outages

A new weather record was set at Newark Liberty International Airport Thursday afternoon when the temperature soared to 69 degrees, making it the warmest it’s ever been at that location on Feb. 17, according to preliminary data from the National Weather Service.

It was just as warm in Jersey City, New Brunswick, East Brunswick and Holmdel, where weather monitoring stations from the Rutgers NJ Weather Network showed afternoon highs of 69 degrees. And at least one town in Camden County reported in at 71 degrees in the late afternoon.

Yes, it’s the middle of February — not April.

Although many New Jerseyans have been walking around in short sleeves and enjoying these unusually warm winter temperatures, our brief taste of spring is being dampened by gusty winds that have been blowing since the morning.

And those winds are expected to ramp up Thursday night and early Friday as a strong cold front sweeps across our region, bringing rain that could be heavy at times and gusts that can get as powerful as 50 to 55 mph at times, according to the National Weather Service.

All 21 counties in New Jersey will be under a wind advisory from 11 p.m. Thursday until 10 a.m. Friday because the wind gusts could be strong enough to blow outdoor objects around and knock down tree branches and electrical wires.

The storm system is expected to bring moderate to heavy rain at times, and the warm atmosphere could even trigger an isolated thunderstorm during the early-morning hours on Friday, forecasters said. Most areas in the southern half of the state are likely to get about a quarter-inch to a half-inch of rain, and areas farther north could get a half inch to 1 inch of rain.

Although some light rain could fall in northwestern New Jersey Thursday afternoon, the bulk of the rain is expected to arrive between 7 p.m. and midnight in areas north of Interstate 95, and between midnight and 3 a.m. south and east of I-95, with some showers lingering through 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. Friday.

Temperatures will likely fall sharply from the 50s Friday morning into the 40s and then the 30s early Friday afternoon before dropping into the 20s Friday night into Saturday morning.

Forecasters say there’s a chance of a brief rain shower or snow shower in northern New Jersey Saturday afternoon, but after that the sun is expected to return.

Spring-like temperatures Thursday afternoon

These are some of the highest temperatures reported across New Jersey on Thursday, Feb. 17, as of 2 p.m. (updated at 5:30 p.m.)
