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 Hamburg, 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 Hamburg, 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:

WAYNE, NJ – For more than a year, the owner of the property located at 1777 Hamburg Turnpike has been seeking approval from the Wayne Board of Adjustment (BOA) for a variance to add two new buildings to the property. One of the new buildings would house an urgent care facility while the second would be a 70-bed in-patient facility that would provide subacute detox services for addicts as well as other mental health services.
This was first put forth to the BOA in November 2019 where testimony was taken and the owner of the property, Mahboob Bhatti, initially proposed building an urgent care center and an 80-bed assisted living facility, according to minutes from that meeting.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the BOA did not hear further testimony on this proposal until June of 2020. By then, things had changed, and Bhatti amended his proposal, asking for permission to build the 70-bed detox/mental health facility instead of the assisted living facility. There would also be upgrades to the exterior of the existing medical building on the property “to complement what they want to do with the new buildings,” read the minutes of the meeting.

This proposal was again before the BOA in September 2020, and again, most recently on January 19, 2021.
According to Chris Kok, the Wayne Township Planner, Bhatti is seeking a bifurcated use variance, which would allow him to have a vote on the proposed use of the property by the BOA. If the use is approved, then Bhatti would submit a complete site plan to the BOA for a second approval.
The two additional buildings proposed would be one four-story structure of about 46,000 square feet for the detox/mental health facility and a smaller, 4,100 square feet, single story structure for the urgent care facility.
Neighbors in the area have voiced their opposition to the proposal every time it was put before the BOA.
Debbie O’Brien who lives on nearby Sheffield Road stated at the last meeting: “We do not need this put here in a residential neighborhood.”
The property is currently zoned for residential, but in 1971 a variance was given that allowed the existing medical building to be constructed in 1973.
Keith Heyman, who also lives near the property, voiced concern about the people who would be coming to the site for addiction treatment.
“So, going back to the people in the facility,” Heyman said. “These people, they would be there of their own free will, so they are free to go at any time, is that correct?”
His worry was that patients at the detox facility would just walk out and wander into the nearby neighborhoods.
Perry Iasiello, a licensed clinical social worker, mental health practitioner and mental health facility administrator was a witness that testified at the last meeting. He answered, “Technically yes, but there is a process for discharging patients.” He also said, “It would be rare, but you can never say never. These folks are going to want to be there and going to want to receive treatment. No one is there against their will.”
Heyman then voiced a concern about people using drugs in the parking lot.
“These people are living and working in our communities already,” answered Iasiello. “This is a place where [drug use] is not to happen.”
Members of the BOA have been asking similar questions of all the witnesses who have testified over the last fourteen months, including the need for a detox facility in Wayne.
Testimony during the December 2020 meeting from Robert Detore, CEO of Turning Point Inc, a drug and alcohol treatment center in Paterson, answered the question of need. The recorded minutes from that meeting said that last year, Turning Point had 365 Wayne residents at their facility.
Michael Rubin, the attorney representing Bhatti during this process was hoping for a vote on the bifurcated use variance during the recent meeting, but there were not enough members present, so the matter was carried again to March, where a vote should take place.
1777 Hamburg Turnpike is next door to the soon-to-be-developed, affordable housing inclusionary townhouse development at Rockledge.

With six golf courses, four pro shops, and two spas, Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, N.J., wanted to consolidate its inventory processes. The largest four season golf, spa, and culinary destination in the Northeast has been relying on the Maestro property-management system for more than a decade and Yellow Dog Software for retail merchandise inventory management. Today, through a new integration partnership, these two best-of-breed hospitality solutions are working as one, giving Crystal Springs Resort a centralized platform for retail, pro shop, and spa inventory control.
“Crystal Springs Resort is an extremely complicated operation with multiple outlets and multifaceted stay packages,” said Larry Slonaker, Crystal Springs Resort CIO. “It’s a challenge for any PMS or POS system to handle these complexities. But Maestro and Yellow Dog stepped to the plate and found a way to work together — and at a reasonable cost with no training required. Previously all spa and some retail inventory was managed in Maestro while all pro shop transactions were managed in Yellow Dog. With the two independent solutions now connected, our business is running the way it should, with no work-around required. Both companies are extremely responsive to our needs, and we are very pleased as a result.”
Yellow Dog currently integrates to more than 60 point-of-sale solutions, including InfoGenesis which is currently used by Crystal Springs Resort to manage all food-and-beverage transactions, and which integrates directly to Maestro PMS. Other POS solutions with integration to both Maestro and Yellow Dog include: Aireus, Book4Time, ForeUP, POSitouch, Silverware, and Squirrel. Maestro is Yellow Dog’s first and only PMS partner.
“Because of our integration partnership with Maestro, Yellow Dog has enhanced merchandising capabilities,” said Billy Sevcik, Yellow Dog Sales Guide. “Now we can take retail, pro shop, and spa menu items and push the pricing and bar codes into Maestro. So, when a customer buys a product, it is now rung in through Maestro, and Yellow Dog receives the transaction details to update inventory. Together we are offering hotels and resorts like Crystal Springs deeper reporting and improved merchandising management.”
A key benefit of the Maestro/Yellow Dog integration partnership is labor savings. By automating reorder reports across retail, golf, and spa outlets, it cuts the time to do manual ordering and receiving in half.
“We are delighted that our new integration partnership with Yellow Dog has been so beneficial to Crystal Springs Resort,” said Maestro President Warren Dehan. “In today’s new normal, selecting best-of-breed features from the industry’s strongest vendors is a recipe for success. Maestro’s relationships with integration partners are second to none — plus they contain much-needed eCommerce to supercharge revenue streams and lower labor costs. We look forward to working with other independent hotels and resorts wanting to leverage our integration with Yellow Dog for improved inventory controls.”

WAYNE, NJ — For more than a year, a developer pushed the Wayne Zoning Board of Adjustment to approve his development plan of 1777 Hamburg Turnpike, but the Zoning Board, voted to deny the application back in March of this year. It was a victory for the nearby neighbors who vehemently opposed the plan. Now the developer is seeking to reverse the decision through a lawsuit filed recently in Passaic County Superior Court.
The land is currently occupied by a medical building. The proposed plan the developer is putting forth is to add two more buildings to the property. One would house a mental health facility with a sub-acute addiction detox center, the other, smaller building would be an urgent care facility.

Neighbors of the property attended all the meetings and vehemently opposed the proposed development, sighting security issues, as well as light and noise issues.
When denying the application back in March Zoning Board chairman Bill Van Gieson said, “I do believe this site is not suited to take on this much development,” he continued. “This is going to have an impact on the neighborhood; a visual impact and a noise impact just by the fact of its distance to those existing neighborhoods.”
The vote was unanimous against the application and now the attorney for the developer is looking to change that.
The six-page lawsuit stated that the Zoning Board of Adjustment “palpably abused their discretionary authority in that the action taken was in all regard arbitrary, capricious, unreasonable and otherwise wrongful.”
“The action of the Board of Adjustment was contrary to the evidence and testimony given by Plaintiff and its witnesses,” read the complaint. “Plaintiff’s financial interests have been adversely affected and manifest injustice created by Defendant’s Board of Adjustment arbitrary and capricious application of their planning, zoning and land use powers.”
The lawsuit is asking for a reversal of the Zoning Board’s denial of the application and to force the approval of the application. This result would also reverse the NIMBY victory the neighbors fought for and won back in March.

WAYNE — The Parke at Hamburg, a new shopping center with seven tenants, will be fully occupied and open to the public in three months, its contractor said.
A representative for March Associates Construction Inc. pegged October as the target for work to be finished at the 7-acre plaza, which will be anchored by Trader Joe's.
Bryan Murray, director of marketing for the township-based company, said last week that there is "no concrete date" for a grand opening. Exterior construction is wrapping up, he said.

"We look forward to providing surrounding communities with a beautiful center, full of quality tenants, which will offer great goods and services," Murray said.
The shopping center lies on previously vacant land, at 910 Hamburg Turnpike, about two-tenths of a mile west of the Valley Road intersection.
It will comprise three buildings.
The main structure, with the grocery store, will house three other tenants: The Habit Burger Grill, The Paper Store and Ulta Beauty. The restaurant will have a 28-seat patio.
Everbrook Academy will open a freestanding day care facility and preschool, occupying 12,870 square feet. And the third building will feature Sport Clips and Panera Bread, with a 39-seat patio and two drive-thru lanes.
Construction began in September. At the time of the ceremonial groundbreaking, three weeks later, Trader Joe's was not prepared to announce its intention to rent space at the shopping center.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:NJ requires face masks to be worn outdoors, Murphy says
Kenya Friend-Daniel, a spokeswoman for the California-based grocer, said Tuesday that the new store will replace an existing Trader Joe's, at 1172 Hamburg Turnpike, less than a mile away.
The new store, at 13,500 square feet, will be twice as large as the one it is replacing, which opened 21 years ago. "The additional space will allow us to better serve our customers and to enhance the customer experience," Friend-Daniel said.
The specialty grocer, established in 1958, has more than 500 stores in 42 states and Washington, D.C., including 17 in New Jersey.
The Planning Board signed off on construction of the shopping center in February of last year.
But three months after the groundbreaking, the contractor returned to the board to ask for modifications to its plan. Changes included expansions of all three buildings, totaling 4,024 square feet.
Landscaping revisions also were approved. March Associates is planting 147 deciduous trees and 236 evergreens at the site.
