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 Hasbrouck Heights, 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 Hasbrouck Heights, 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:

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights Board of Education honored its Teachers of the Year, retiring staff and the girls spring track team at its meeting last Thursday.
First to be recognized were the district's Teachers of the Year, who were honored by their principal.
The Euclid School Teacher of the Year is Diane Robertson, fifth grade teacher, who was presented by Michael Sickels, Principal.
"Mrs. Robertson's class is always open and inviting...she has teachers come in and observe her," said Sickels "Word got out, and actually we now have teachers from Wallington come in and watch her teach. She's really good at her craft. You walk into her classroom, and you'll see her in front of the class with the kids on the floor, or you won't find her at all. And I don't know where she is sometimes, because she's bending down next to a kid, as they're all spread about, working with them one on one."
"But not only is so great in the classroom, but outside the classroom," he continued. "She stops kids in the streets, in the hallways, at football fields, baseball fields. She's very inviting to the parents, they all love her. She is all around amazing."
"She is one of the kids' favorite teachers, and without a doubt one of the staff's favorite teachers as well," he said.
The Lincoln School Teacher of the Year is Nichole Rucci, ESL teacher, who was presented by Dr. Matthew Helfant, Superintendent, as Joseph Colangelo, principal was running late.
"Nichole does ESL, and we've had a real increase, and I know that you've done an excellent job with working with them," said Helfant. "She's done an excellent job, she's a great teacher, and really helped with that program."
Helfant then called up Mary Ann Pagano, who is retiring from Lincoln School. She started out as a teacher and then became a guidance counselor at the school.
"Mary Ann became a counselor and really helped with that program, and really made it what it is today," he said.
Colangelo then joined the presentation.
"If you were a student of Mary Ann's, you participated in the wax museum," said Colangelo. "Going forward, the wax museum will be known as "Madame Pagano's Wax Museum."
Helfant also announced the retired of paraprofessional Helen Pasqualone, and Roseanne Kammerer.
At Hasbrouck Heights High School, the Teacher of the Year was Mary Centrella, and at Hasbrouck Heights Middle School it was Jennifer Keller.
Spring track coach Robert Brady was then called to recognize the girls track and field team for their achievements in the 2022 season.
Brady said the successes began at the end of the winter track season as two relays qualified for the New Balance Indoor National Championships and Nike Indoor National Championship. One team placed sixth at the Nike meet, giving them All America status. He noted it was "a tremendous honor" and the first time in school history a team placed sixth.
The girls team saw more success in spring, "they have done some amazing things this year," Brady said, they "won every meet that they've been to this year" except the NJSIAA group championships. Wins included the Season Opener Meet, Aviator Relays, County Seat Invitational, Bergen County Group Championship, and Rams Relay. In the Bergen County Relay Championship, the team won every event that they entered for a perfect 160 point score. They won the NJSIAA Sectional Championship by 100 points, and were named Bergen County Team of the Year.
"It's a tremendous honor to coach these kids," said Brady noting that it's hard to say goodbye to the seniors. Each girl was called up to receive a certificate of achievement from the board.

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights third/fourth grade Rec softball team HH21 finished an undefeated season, winning the 2022 South Bergen Girls Softball League (SBGSL) championship.
"The coaches and I are extremely proud of the girls and had an absolute blast teaching them and helping them develop all season," said head coach Mike Davis.
After a 12-0 regular season record, the team headed into the SBGSL playoffs. Davis noted "all the teams were prepared to give their all when the playoffs began."
After getting a bye in the first round, Hasbrouck Heights 21 played Wood-Ridge (WR25) in the semifinal game. According to Davis, Wood-Ridge played a strong game in keeping the score to only a two-run differential midway through the game. Hasbrouck Heights broke it open with a two RBI hit by Ava Casazza to double the lead, followed by a three run homerun by Lilly Grella in the next at bat to blow the game open and secure the lead.
The very next inning shortstop Nina Screvane-D’Amore took a hard grounder off her chin, but recovered to make the throw and get a critical out at first. Savannah Davis then struck out the game's final five batters, to finish with 13 strikeouts for the game. Earlier in the game, two stellar defensive plays by third baseman Dylan Gibbs-Sausa helped contain Wood-Ridge’s offense at big moments.
The Championship game would match up two Hasbrouck Heights teams, HH21 against HH 22. HH21 jumped out to a quick lead in the first with a 4-0 lead as catcher Lily Grella continued to have a hot bat, knocking in two of those runs. But the other Hasbrouck Heights team (HH22) chipped away at the lead eventually tying it 4-4.
Davis explained that the team had never been tied or trailed at any point during the year and after only giving up eight total runs in the regular season, and this was the most they had let up in a single game. The girls rallied the next inning by scoring two as first baseman Gianna Carullo knocked in one of her three RBIs on the day by putting the ball in play, as Gibbs-Sousa used her speed to score from second base while the defense made the play on Carulla. Melissa Acurol took a hit by pitch with the bases loaded to score the second run of the inning.
In the final inning, the girls scored four mmore runs to stretch the lead. The top of the order came up and after Lyla Rodrigues walked and stole a base, Nina Screvane-D’Amore blasted a two-run homerun that went into the softball field across from where the game was being played to double the lead. Davis and Gibbs-Sousa then both got on for Carulla and Ava Casazza to knock them in to get the score to 10-5 heading into the final at bat for the other Hasbrouck Heights team.
Davis, after giving up some early runs in the game settled down, and closed the final six batters across the last two innings with three ground balls back to her, two strikeouts, and getting the final out on a popup back to the mound for the win . The final score in the Championship game between two Hasbrouck Heights teams was 10-5.
"The girls on the team played with such a combination of enthusiasm and tenacity, it was fun to coach and watch them all season," said. Davis.
Davis shared some stats from the season:
"These girls demonstrated the fun and enjoyment of being on a softball team and developing those team bonds," said Davis. "This group also showed a burning desire to compete and win as anytime they were challenged they rose to the occasion and came out on top."
"This spring season was so much fun with the girls we are very sad it had to come to an end," Davis continued. "These girls are just at their beginning of their playing careers, but they have already shown how bright their futures will be and how much fun their families and friends are going to have watching them."

Roselle Park was given a chance to reach the sectional finals in its own building and it was the lower weight classes that stepped up in a big way.
The Panthers got four consecutive pins from their lightest wrestlers to clinch a spot in the North Jersey Section 2 Group 1 championship after a 52-19 victory over sixth-seeded Secaucus in the semifinal in Roselle Park.
The Panthers, the second seed, advanced with a 41-37 win against seventh-seeded Boonton in the quarterfinal.
Roselle Park (11-2) will take on top-seeded Hasbrouck Heights (15-7) in the championship on Wednesday night at Hasbrouck Heights. The Aviators advanced to the final after dominating eighth-seeded Whippany Park, 54-27, in the quarterfinal followed by a 48-24 victory over fifth-seeded Verona.
The top two seeds in the section will have a chance to do battle to see who will reign supreme. There will be just one match on Wednesday night but that was not the case on Monday.
“Our venue doesn’t allow us to have two mats,” Roselle Park head coach Ryan Rooney said. “Because of this, we had a chance to come out and scout the opponent, which was nice. At the same time, we didn’t make any moves and wrestled our guys where they belong.”
Secaucus (10-12) was given something to cheer about early on. Dylan Formisano earned a 2-0 win over Kevin Osorio at 285 to put the Patriots up 3-0 early. From that moment on, it was all Panthers.
Roselle Park saw four straight wins by pin to gain control 24-3. Matthew Griffin (106) and Brandon Scott (113) got it started followed by Sal Randazzo (120) and Nick Torino (126). This has been a strength for the Panthers all season long.
“I’m really proud of the way that group has been practicing and progressing,” Rooney said. “It hasn’t just been this year. It’s been for years from this group. They work really hard and that is what we expect from them. We expect that to continue for sure.”
Mayson Harms earned a major decision victory over Dean Costantino at 132 and the rout was on.
“For this match, we were focused on putting points on the board and getting it done for our team,” Harms said. “We know our strong points and where we can lean to get those important pins.”
Secaucus had the chance to take on Roselle Park after upsetting third-seeded Mountain Lakes, 48-33, in the quarterfinal. For the Patriots, the underclassmen have played a huge part and this will help for years to come.

“At the beginning of the season, we wanted to make sure everyone was having fun and comfortable,” Secaucus head coach Evan Pope said. “Guys were struggling a bit but now, guys are coming up big in sectional matches. I’m happy that the young guys were able to have success to set us up moving forward.”
The wins by falls kept coming for Roselle Park with Angel Mejia at 144 and Julian Martin at 150. Julian Colon (157) got it done in the fastest time winning his bout in just 26 seconds.
“We have leadership through our junior class even,” Rooney said. “Almost all of our lineup has been at the varsity level for three years. We can lean on any single person in our lineup to step up when we need you to step up.”
Nevin Trueblood and Daniel Casillas earned decision victories for the Patriots with Nick Bartletta winning by forfeit to end the night.
“I had a couple of goals in my first year,” Pope said. “I wanted to try and win 10 matches and we did that tonight. I wanted to make it to sectionals and have a chance to win. You’re going to go and wrestle a tough team. You know that going in. We had some good performances tonight from guys who were struggling a bit. There were plenty of our guys that stepped up.”
In a season that saw Roselle Park know its role and perform up to expectations, the Panthers will now have a chance to compete for a championship.
“It’s just been great to wrestle in front of people again,” Harms said. “Having the crowd and energy back. It makes us want to win and gives us a boost. It makes you just want to wrestle better and perform at the highest level.”

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - It took over two hours, with numerous questions from local residents and board members, but Hasbrouck Heights Planning Board approved the application for a Shake Shack to come to the borough on the former Mt. Fuji site on Route 17 South.
The group made a preliminary, informal presentation to the Board in June.
The group looks to demolish the Mt. Fuji structure and build a 2100 square foot restaurant with a two-lane drive-thru which can accommodate 26 cars in the queue. The inside will be open for ordering or order pick up only. A 990 square foot, three-season 40-seat exterior patio will be open. Both the drive-thru and patio will be on the Route 17 side of the building to help curb noise for area residents.
The fast casual chain is planning to open 10 drive-thru sites nationally in 2022, according to reporting in the restaurant industry publication, "Restaurant Dive." Other Shake Shacks in the area include Paramus and Wayne.
The applicants were seeking several variances:
The group said it would take approximately six months to prepare the property and build the restaurant.
Approximately a dozen residents from Field Avenue, whose properties border the site, peppered the group with questions ranging from litter, light, noise and traffic. They noted that litter has been an ongoing issue from the restaurants along that stretch of Route 17. They expressed concerns about the scheduled time of deliveries and garbage pick up, light and noise coming from the new site, as well as increased traffic coming down Field Ave.
The group explained that bollard lights will be in the drive-thru and that LED lights would be in the 18 foot overhead light posts. The new technology of LED lights would prevent spillage onto residential properties. They agreed to a six-month review of the lighting and modify if needed.
Deliveries would be scheduled from 7 to 11 a.m., with garbage pick-ups scheduled between 9 and 11 a.m. The parking lot would also have trash bins for customers who chose to eat in their cars instead of on the patio or at home.
The group is planning an 8-foot PVC fence on the west side, which borders the Field Ave. properties. In addition, there is a 25-foot green buffer with those properties. Rows of pine trees and arborvitaes will be planted along the west and south property lines for addition sound buffer.
Residents expressed safety concerns during and after construction, urging the Board to have traffic directed down Route 17 South instead of using Field Ave. to Franklin Ave. as a turnaround, which they said is a current concern. The Board agreed to post signs for all traffic looking to go north to utilize the jug-handle at the White Castle for U-turns.
The Planning Board voted unanimously to approve the plans. It will be memorialized at the January 2022 meeting.
