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 Harding, 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 Harding, 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:

Some songs make an artist instantly recognisable.
Such as hearing the rebirth and re-release of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’. We hear that song, and we know it is Kate, it has become a signature song for the artist, one which makes us not need to ask “who is that singing?” A lot of songs which are instantly recognisable and make you name the artist straight away, may not be a song they wrote, in fact some may have been released before. But because the artist had a massive hit with it, it became associated forever as a song by that artist.
For example; Robert Hazard wrote, recorded and released what became Cindy Lauper’s signature hit ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ in 1979 – a whole three years before Cindy’s version would turn her into a global star. Tiffany’s major hit in 1987, ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’, was originally recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells, reaching number four in 1967 on the US charts. Both these tracks have become signature tunes for the artists, but even though they made them their own, they did not start out life that way.
Below is a playlist of songs which have become famous by other artists, even though they did not compose or originally release them. In fact almost all were not written with the artist that made them famous in mind. Still the creativity used to turn these songs around and mould them into their own vision is something that has to be admired.
To start with, ‘Blinded By The Light’ was a colossal hit for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band in 1976. It took the number one spot on the US singles chart and went Top Ten in the UK – instantly becoming Manfred’s most recognised song. But it was originally recorded by the Boss, and tucked away on his Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. debut album from 1973. Worth noting: this created Springsteen’s biggest hit as a songwriter.
Gloria Jones – Tainted Love
What broke the duo Soft Cell and put them at the top of the charts in 1981, was a cover. In 1965, Gloria Jones, one time partner of the late Marc Bolan, recorded this track written for her by Ed Cobb the American songwriter and producer. This version is the re-recording Jones did for the Vixen album in 1977, perhaps closer to what inspired Marc Almond and David Ball.
Ednaswap – Torn
This earworm of the nineties was played to death and turned Neighbours actress Natalie Imbruglia into a chart sensation. At the time, not many realised that the song ‘Torn’ had already seen a release. Firstly sung in Danish by Lis Sørensen and retitled ‘Brændt’ (Burned), second time out by the composer’s (Scott Cutler) rock band from Los Angeles Ednaswap.
The Arrows – I Love Rock N’ Roll
In 1981, when Joan Jett And The Blackhearts hit the top of the US charts with ‘I Love Rock N’ Roll’ nobody thought for a minute it was not the self-penned proclamation of angst. It stood at the top of those charts for several weeks, and became Jett’s biggest hit. Surprisingly it was already a release by English rock band The Arrows in 1975.
Nine Inch Nails – Hurt
Some many tears were shed when Johnny Cash sang the emotional lyrics to this. A man at the end of his life had the perfect vehicle to sum up the heartache, and joy he witnessed. It was neither written for Cash, nor was written with him in mind. The track was written by Trent Reznor and released on the Nine Inch Nails Downward Spiral album in 1995. The version Cash did won a Grammy for its video, along with a CMA award for single of the year.
Jackie DeShannon – Bette Davis Eyes
In 1981, Kim Carnes went to number one in 21 countries, including the US with her version of ‘Bette Davis Eyes’. Along with this she picked up a Grammy along the way for Record Of The Year. Unknown to many, ‘Bette Davis Eyes’ had already seen a release seven years prior when composer Jackie DeShannon (and Donna Weiss) released it on her New Arrangement album.
J.J. Cale – Cocaine
Well this may come as a surprise to some as this track became a summary of Eric Clapton’s life when he recorded for the ’77 Slowhand album. J.J. Cale wrote and recorded the track originally, releasing it on his 1977 album Troubadour. Although an anti-drug song originally, when Clapton played it, that message became somehow lost.
Bob Dylan – All Along The Watchtower
This is an example of taking the bones of a track and reshaping in your own image. When Dylan stuck his foot on the brakes of his sixties career, he released John Wesley Harding in 1967, a return to his folk roots. Within six months, Jimi Hendrix rebuilt the track into a sonic tour-de-force that has since formed the backdrop to so many Vietnam War movies. Dylan in the seventies re-shaped the song around the Hendrix version, creating a cover of a cover.
King Harvest – Dancing In The Moonlight
That song by Toploader, which even today is still a regular radio staple, is actually a very old track from 1970. Originally written by Sherman Kelly for his band Boffalongo, the track was later recorded and released by King Harvest due to the connection to Kelly’s brother, Wells being the drummer in that band. Of course it broke the Top 20 easily for King Harvest upon release in the US, even going Top 5 in Canada.
Finishing as I started with this curious track. Curious for two reasons; firstly Patti Smith is one of the greatest songwriters of the past fifty years and she can write lyrics, secondly at a time Springsteen needed a chart hit, he gifted one to Smith.
Springsteen and the E Street Band recorded the track for the Darkness On The Edge Of Town album in 1977. Due to the Boss being unhappy with the track, the mutual producer Jimmy Lovine stepped in and suggested letting Smith record it. She did, adding some of her own lyrics and it became her biggest hit.

The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) announced in a press release that it has vaccines for those with monkeypox which will be available on a limited and targeted basis across the state.
Vaccinations will begin the week of August 15.
Wyoming is currently the only state in the country that has not yet identified any cases of monkeypox.
There are currently 8,934 cases of monkeypox across the U.S., with 78 in Colorado, 48 in Utah, 14 in Nebraska, seven in Idaho, and one in both South Dakota and Montana.
According to the Centers for Disease Control's website, monkeypox is spread in various ways, including to anyone through close, personal, often skin-to-skin contact, sexual contact, and a pregnant person can spread the virus to their fetus.
The release states that monkeypox is related to smallpox with similar but milder symptoms, but it is not related to chickenpox.
Dr. Alexia Harrist, the state health officer and state epidemiologist with the WDH, said monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus.
"This disease is usually characterized by a rash and can also involve other symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and tiredness...Monkeypox can spread to anyone through close, personal contact," Harrist said. “Fortunately, it does not spread nearly as easily as do familiar viruses such as influenza or COVID-19."
Harrist said in the release that they recommend anyone who has been exposed to monkeypox or is likely to get the virus get vaccinated, and that "While anyone can get monkeypox, vaccine eligibility is limited at this point to those people who are at highest risk due to limited supplies."
The U.S. currently has about 1.1 million doses of the vaccine on hand, with more shipments planned in the coming months, along with a possible new method of injecting the vaccine that uses only one-fifth of a dose to be able to stretch out the current supply.
According to the release, adults eligible for pre-exposure vaccination if they live or work in Wyoming are:
Eligible adults interested in vaccination appointments should contact the public health office in their area or call the WDH at 307-777-6004 for help finding the closest local public health office.
While available monkeypox vaccine doses are being provided by the federal government through the state at no charge, a small administration fee may be charged,
Kim Deti, public information officer with the WDH, said in an email that the administrative fee would vary by county, "is expected to be reasonable," and counties have been asked not to charge people who don't have insurance or can't afford the fee.
Deti said they expect to have around 180 doses available by next week and will order more in the coming weeks.
Wyoming-related information and updates about monkeypox can be found on the WDH's website.

Accustomed to detours and dust from an eight-month-long rebuilding of Broad Street, merchants and motorists in Red Bank will face what officials hope will be one last series of shutdowns next week.
Weather permitting, several days of paving and striping should all but finish the streetscape project.
The detour plan for Monday and Tuesday, above, and Wednesday, below. (Click to enlarge.)
Here’s the borough announcement from Thursday evening:
Please be advised that next week, Montana Construction will mill and pave Broad Street from Front Street through Harding Road. The schedule will be as follows:
Monday July 18th- Milling starting south of the Front Street intersection and working south on Broad St towards Harding Rd:
– The following streets will be local traffic only: Mechanic St, White St, Monmouth St (east of Maple), Peter’s Place, Canal St, and Reckless Pl
– The road will be milled in sections and will be reopened as they move south to the extent possible
Tuesday July 19th – Paving starting south of the Front Street intersection and working south toward Harding Rd
– Broad St will be closed from Front Street to Leroy Place
– The following streets will be local traffic only: Mechanic St, White St, Monmouth St (east of Maple), Peter’s Place, Canal St, Reckless Pl, Harding Rd (west of Spring St)
– The road will be reopened in sections as soon as possible, but will remain closed until safe to drive upon
– Motorists should expect delays as detours will be in place and plan an alternate route if possible
Wednesday July 20th – Milling and paving the intersection of Broad Street and Front Street, then Canal Street and Hudson Ave
– Front St will be local traffic only east of Pearl Street and west of Spring St starting at 9AM
– Broad St will be closed from White Street to Front St starting at 9AM
– Canal Street will be closed from Broad to Hudson, Clay St will be local traffic only, and Hudson Ave will be closed from Elm Pl to the Linden Lots
– The eastbound ambulance/emergency vehicle route to RMC is Front St to Boatclub Ct to Union St to RMC (highlighted in blue on the map)
– Motorists should expect delays as detours will be in place and plan an alternate route if possible
Thursday July 21st – Striping and painting of roadway lines, crosswalks, and parking spaces will be completed along the entire project. Minor traffic disruptions will occur but lane shifts will be utilized as much as possible and any road closures will be temporary.
Working hours are approximately 7AM-4PM each day
The project, originally budgeted at $2.7 million, included the installation of retractable security bollards at three Broad Street intersections to enable quick closures to vehicular traffic between White and Front streets. Their first deployment could come July 22, with an anticipated start to the third, albeit abbreviated, edition of the Broadwalk shopping and dining plaza.
According to the National Weather Service forecast as of Friday afternoon, the Greater Red Bank Green could get some rain Monday, followed by several days of sunshine.

The average property tax bill in New Jersey rose to a record $9,284 in 2021, highest in the nation.
Every town is different in how it determines the value of a home and the rate to charge owners. To get a clearer picture of the true burden to taxpayers, you have to instead look at the equalized tax rate.
The equalized tax rate shows what your rate would be if every home was assessed at 100 percent of what it would sell for on the open market, providing the fairest way to compare the real tax burden to homeowners.
This week’s list shows the towns with the smallest property tax bills in each county, as well as those with the lowest equalized rates.

A New Jersey homeowner is making the unusual offer of trying to give away his five-acre estate — for free. While it may sound like a deal that's too good to pass up, the man said that he hasn't been able to find any takers.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home sits tucked away and far off the road in Upper Saddle River, and is bursting with wildlife. But it's the inside of the home that is sure to impress even more.
"The property was all woods when I bought it, it was a small house," said Roger Wohrle, who is hoping to preserve the look and feel of both the house and the property.
The 82-year-old's hope is to find someone to take care of the home after he dies someday, and is fine with giving it all away at no cost. But there is a catch: Whomever takes over the estate must preserve the blueprint as is.
The expansive property also includes a bamboo forest, and comes with a driveway with gates once owned by a family aboard the Titanic.
But Wohrle's favorite feature may be the greenhouse — a tropical oasis complete with a koi pond for the man who spent decades working in the tropical plant business.
The house and grounds also come with so many stories, like the time Yankee great Yogi Berra partied there.
"It started with drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the downstairs of the house, and then came down to the greenhouse," Wohrle said.
From self-playing pianos to eight antique cars, it's not the "stuff" Whorle cars about keeping, although he has plenty of it. It's the rich history.
"If I were to put in on the market, I could sell it and they’d put four or five homes here, which I don’t want. They’d be mega mansions," he said.
To be clear, the home is not for sale, but it is being offered up for free. Thus far, Wohrle has found it tough to find any serious takers. Since going public with his offer in 2020, he's gotten dozens of inquiries, even one from a man in prison.
"It’s not a big house. People ask me how many rooms and square footage — I don’t know, but it’s about eight rooms," he said. "I must’ve gotten at least 30-40 inquiries."
Wohrle said that between taxes and upkeep, the cost of running the house and the greenhouse is "a good $100,000 a year." The ideal suitor for Wohrle would perhaps be a college or botanical garden, who will keep and maintain his vision long after he's gone.
"If I made an attempt and it didn't work, at least I made an attempt, rather than just giving up before anything was done," he said.

If you think homes in New Jersey are expensive, you’re right. There are now nearly three dozen places in the Garden State where the average home price exceeds $1 million.
Those prices are based on 15% growth statewide in 2021, according to data from The Otteau Group.
The average price of a single family home in New Jersey in January 2022 was $551,028, according to New Jersey Realtors.
But home sales in the $1 million to $2.5 million price range increased by 27% in 2021 — the largest increase of any price category, according to data from The Otteau Group.
That was due to trade-up buyers who finally entered the frenzied pandemic real estate market — existing homeowners in New Jersey who wanted to move into larger homes.
“There was lots of uncertainty about job security during the pandemic,” said Jeffrey Otteau, a real estate economist and president of the Otteau Group. Trade-up buyers were also “reluctant to bring strangers into their homes due to the risk they might bring the virus with them.”
“Existing homeowners sheltered in place,” he said. “That’s changed.”
Nationally, the number of cities where home values exceeded $1 million almost tripled last year to 481 cities, according to Zillow. The New York metropolitan area now has 76 cities with homes valued over $1 million. And 34 of them are in New Jersey.
Of those, Monmouth and Ocean counties each had eight towns; Bergen and Cape May counties each had five; Somerset, Essex and Morris had two; and Union and Atlantic each had one.
In this data set, put together by Zillow, the state’s priciest zip code, according to Property Shark, did not rank number one.
