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 there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

Sussex County is in the far northwest corner of New Jersey. It's different from what most people think of when they think "Jersey."
Its rolling hills and vast farmland and forest make it a unique corner of our state.
This time of year, with the fall foliage in full bloom, you don't need to drive up to New England or New York state.
There is plenty of what you're looking for in Sussex County.
One of these fall weekends you owe it to yourself to take a ride up to Sussex and check out.
There are plenty of lakes to check out from Lake Hopatcong to Crater lake and dozens more.
You don't hear much about Kittatinny Lake.
It sits at the edge of Stokes State Forest and at the foot of Kittatinny Mountain.
The mountain is actually a long ridge that runs along the Delaware River and up to the Delaware Water Gap.
If you are looking to take a nice scenic ride in one of the most beautiful and atypical parts of New Jersey, head to Kittatinny Lake.
It's just off Route 206. Once you're there you'll want to stop at Gyp's Tavern right on the lake.
This place is a legendary "hole in the wall" that's been around some 80 years.
Don't let the plain old exterior fool you. Inside this place has more character and history than some entire states.
Babe Ruth used to hang out here. It turns out he was friends with the original owner George "Gyp" Roselli.
Gyp was short for gypsy which Roselli called himself from his days of running off to join the circus as a young man.
The place has changed hands a couple of times and the new owner embraces its history and old-school reputation.
Lots of sportsmen frequent the place just like the Babe did back in the day.
Ruth was an avid fisherman and that's how he came to be a regular there, even bartending from time to time.
You can tell the new owners take pride in the menu and the service at the place.
So, if you've looking to "take a ride" this fall, head to Lake Kittatinny and Gyp's Tavern.

During their bye week, the New York Giants talked about possibly extending some of their players' contracts. Their two biggest questions are running back Saquon Barkley, and quarterback Daniel Jones. They extended neither.
Barkley isn't worried, telling the press, "I want to be a Giant for life." As for Jones, who had another good day in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Houston Texans, going 13/17 for 197 yards and two touchdowns, they should have locked him up as well.
We all know the New York Giants need to make a decision on a quarterback. For me, the right one is to re-sign Daniel Jones and end the speculation. Here's why:
The Giants are 6-2, and coming off of a bye week. I was actually hoping they would have re-signed Jones during the bye, which would have given the team a psychological boost as they make their run. Jones is a major reason why the team is where they are in the playoff hunt. He's doing it with great coaching, but very little help outside of running back Saquon Barkley; whom they should also re-sign and probably will.
Jones' stat line through 9 games is: 156 completions in 237 attempts for a completion percentage of 65.8%,1596 yards thrown, 8 touchdowns and 2 interceptions which is a major reduction in turnovers. He has been sacked 25 times. He was also named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jones is basically doing this with no receivers, and a subpar offensive line. The argument can be made that he is a major reason why they are 6-2 at this point.
The argument can also be made that if the Giants don't re-sign Jones, someone else in the league will. Who wouldn't want a 6'5, 230lbs quarterback who can run and throw an accurate, deep ball? Some reported suggestions include Houston, Washington, Indianapolis who just fire head coach Frank Reich, and Carolina, where he's from. Carolina is also owned by Jersey guy, David Tepper, who hired Matt Ruhle away from the Giants.
Jones has endured some of the worst coaching and talent before being redeemed this year by head coach Brian Daboll. Jones would be Daboll's second reclamation project, along with Josh Allen in Buffalo, and we see how that worked out.
I also think Giants' ownership really wants it to work with Jones. John Mara once admitted, "We've done everything possible to screw up Daniel Jones." Via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Mara also said, "We certainly have not given up on Daniel Jones.” That was before they hired general managers Joe Shoen and Brian Daboll, and that's the way it should stay.
Look for both Jones and Saquon Barkley to remain with the Giants, especially since they'll have over 60 million dollars in cap money to spend. This will enable Big Blue to finish what they're starting, rather than do it all over again. We as fans have waited long enough.

A solid majority of retailers responding to Levin Management Corp.‘s annual pre-holiday sentiment survey said they are optimistic about what this vital season will bring. They also cited inflation as the top driver likely to impact performance — an observation that aligns with current economic headwinds and may resonate in everything from holiday spending to peak sales periods, to retailers’ customer engagement efforts.
Nearly 64% of LMC poll participants anticipated positive holiday performance. While still encouraging, this metric is down 8 percentage points from last year and coincides with a 4.6 percentage point increase in participants who have uncertain performance expectations. Nearly 25% of respondents are not sure how the season will play out.
“By all accounts, the retail industry has been enjoying a post-pandemic resurgence in 2022, and optimism continues,” LMC CEO Matthew Harding said. “However, there is an overarching sense we are in changeable times — a sentiment extending well beyond the retail sector.”
To that end, LMC respondents ranked shifting economic conditions/consumer confidence second (after inflation) among the factors most likely to shape holiday performance.
Harding noted several industry-tracking organizations, including Deloitte and ICSC, forecast healthy seasonal spending in 2022.
“These studies indicate consumers plan to spend more on holiday shopping this year, partly due to the simple fact things cost more, but also because they want to treat their loved ones and celebrate the season,” he said. “They also report that inflation pressures have consumers focused on finding the best deals, and early-season promotions will be especially popular.”
This aligns with the LMC survey findings, which point to a front-loaded season. Just under half of participants expect their sales to peak before (25.9%) or during (23.6%) the Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend. This is a slight uptick from last year and continues a sustained and well-documented trend toward earlier holiday shopping.
Looking past factors beyond their control, retailers are focusing their energy in areas where they can move the needle this holiday season. Nearly one-quarter (23.1%) of LMC survey respondents said they are trying new ways to enhance customers’ holiday shopping experiences. Popular adds and enhancements are tied to loyalty programs, stepped-up customer service initiatives and adoption of conveniences like click-and-collect and same-day delivery service.
“When it comes to marketing, it is so important to evolve and take advantage of new opportunities,” Melissa Sievwright, LMC’s vice president of marketing, said. “We are observing a laser focus on building customer relationships, which is crucial for brick-and-mortar as retailers work to counter e-commerce growth and gain market share within their competitive set. Companies that are in-tune with what inflation-stressed consumers want — value, convenience and service — are well-positioned to prosper this holiday season and beyond.”
Sievwright noted several tenants pointed to the incorporation of in-store events for the 2022 holiday season, marking a welcome post-pandemic development. “While we may be past the ‘revenge shopping’ of 2021 — when pent-up demand fueled record sales — we see no lack of enthusiasm for being out in the world, shopping in stores and experiencing some in-person holiday cheer,” she said.
For seven decades, LMC has served as a trusted single-source commercial real estate services provider for institutional and private owners. The firm’s next Retail Sentiment surveys, which poll retail store managers in the firm’s 125-property, 16 million-square-foot leasing and management portfolio, will be conducted in January and June, exploring 2023 outlooks, and gauging technology trends and mid-year performance, respectively. The award-winning survey program reflects the firm’s commitment to understanding issues and trends impacting retailers from a street-level perspective.
