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 Hutchinson, 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 Hutchinson, 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:

PHILADELPHIA -- As the Eagles kick off their season this weekend at Detroit, they are almost universally viewed as a team on the rise, with one of the NFC’s most talented rosters.
Their deepest, most heralded group is the offensive line, which I think is the NFL’s best, and plenty of people who know more about this stuff than I do agree. Pro Football Focus, for example, ranked the Eagles’ o-line the best going into 2022.
The OL has been at or near the top -- excepting a few years when injuries ravaged the room -- for most of the last decade. Eagles fans have come to take high-level offensive line play for granted.
Most places, if you popped out of your time machine early in 2019 and said “Hey, three years from now you won’t have that nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle (Jason Peters) or that right guard that has made the Pro Bowl the past three years (Brandon Brooks),” fans would assume they weren’t going to be as good up front in three years.
Instead, the Eagles’ OL actually might be better.
Several members of the offensive line interviewed in the week leading up to the opener said the keys to that stability are offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and 12th-year center Jason Kelce. They set the tone for the group.
“Every line is different, you’ve got different players, but it’s led by the same center,” right tackle Lane Johnson said Friday. “Same coach. So our mindset hasn’t really changed, the way we attack our opponents. We go into every matchup thinking we’re outgunned and outmatched, and try to be as well-prepared as we can.”
Also, the front office, which, for example, can’t draft a really good cornerback even once a decade, is much, much better (and much more proactive) when it comes to selecting o-linemen. The entire starting five is homegrown.
The last two second-round picks, left guard Landon Dickerson and rookie backup center Cam Jurgens, seem to have been excellent choices. The right guard, Isaac Seumalo, is the only player remaining on the roster from the Eagles’ 2016 draft. The right tackle, Johnson, was the fourth overall pick in 2013, when all of the top four picks were offensive tackles. Johnson’s career has been far and away the best of that draft class.
Betting on the NFL in Week 1?
And of course, the left tackle is Jordan Mailata, one of the most amazing stories in pro football history. Mailata had never played in any sort of football game when the Eagles drafted him in in the seventh round in 2018. He was a 6-foot-8, 365-pound rugby player from Australia. Sunday he will make his 30th NFL start, with the Eagles expecting him to hold his own against Lions rookie pass rush phenom Aidan Hutchinson, the NFL’s second overall draft pick this past spring.
Mailata and Dickerson (6-6, 332) might be the most powerful left side tandem in the league. On the other side of franchise icon Kelce are two lighter but more experienced players in Seumalo and Johnson. If there is a question mark among the starters, it’s probably Seumalo, who has missed 21 games over the past two seasons with injuries. He played some right guard as a rookie in 2016, and was lauded for being able to back up at all five spots early in his career, but since becoming a full-time starter in 2019, Seumalo has been almost exclusively a left guard.
Seumalo doesn’t have a contract past this season, and it wasn’t clear in the spring that he would still be here, or would be starting ahead of, say, Jurgens. Seumalo went down Week 3 last year with a Lisfranc foot sprain.
“The transition [to the right side] has gone about as good as I could have hoped for. The foot feels good,” Seumalo said this week. “Playing next to Lane and ‘Kelse’ is obviously a benefit.”
“He’s such an underrated player,” Stoutland said of Seumalo. “Because probably of his demeanor. He’s quiet, doesn’t say much. When he speaks in our [offensive line] meeting, and he does ... when he gets up and talks about technique ... players listen.”
Johnson, whose forte is quickness and athleticism, liked playing next to Brooks, who was the strongest, most powerful player on the line. Seumalo lacks Brooks’ power, but makes up for it in other ways, Johnson said.
“Isaac’s as quick as a [expletive] cat,” Johnson said. “He knows the offense a lot better than I do, so when I [expletive] up, he can help me adjust.”
“There’s a lot of issues for some players moving over, but not for him. A lot of guys don’t have the foot quickness -- Isaac’s probably the quickest lineman on the team.”
Seumalo turns 29 next month. He spent his first three seasons proving he could be a quality starter on a top o-line. He’s spent the last two seasons grappling with injury. In fact, 2019 was the only year Seumalo has started every game.
Seumalo said he appreciates where he is.
“I’ve been on a scooter multiple times, and boots. Just being able to play again is pretty cool,” he said. “There was a long time during [last] season where it was grinding through that rehab. It’s tough to [envision] the end result.
“Very, very appreciative. Trying to stay in the moment as much as I can.”

On August 24 at 8pm a documentary by Truehart Productions that has been two and a half years in the making will be released in two parts on NJ PBS’s network of stations. The film, a two-part series, will begin by exploring slavery in New Jersey with moving stories from historians and descendants of slaves from across the state. Then in Part II it will reveal the lasting impact slavery has had on the African American community today.
The Executive Producer and the President of Truehart Productions, Ridgeley Hutchinson stated: “Thanks to our grass-roots fundraising efforts on social media, two grants from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, and major funding from Public Media New Jersey, our mission to educate New Jerseyans with this basically untold and forgotten story will now be told across the State and in New Jersey’s schools, libraries and museums.”
In June, NJPBS announced:
“NJ PBS, New Jersey’s public television network, announced it will air a two-part documentary entitled The Price of Silence: The Forgotten Story of New Jersey’s Enslaved People. The documentary seeks to fill a gap in Garden State history by sharing the little-known legacy of slavery across New Jersey through the testimony of experts who have devoted their careers to studying it. Watch a trailer here.
“New Jersey is known as the Garden State,” says author Beverly Mills in the film. “We’re known for our blueberries. We’re known for our corn. We’re known for our peaches. But we’re not known for the slaves that were here tilling the soil. We’re not known for the whole history of slavery connected to New Jersey and how slavery was the underpinning of much of the wealth of New Jersey.”
“Enslavement was prolific from the very founding of New Jersey in the 1600s as a colony and eventual manufacturing hub that supplied the Southern states with leather goods and other products. Its eye on production and profit created a demand for the cost-effective services of the enslaved, a demand that only grew as New Jersey developed into a major maritime port. What’s more, white slave owners at the time could receive the equivalent of land rebates based upon the number of enslaved working their land.
“New Jersey was the last Northern state to even attempt to abolish slavery,” says Linda Caldwell Epps, Ph.D. and CEO of 1804 Consultants, in the film. “And (it) was probably the Northern state with the strongest sympathies towards the South. Because it was the Southern-most Northern state, it had a lucrative trade policy with the Southern states.”
The film treks across New Jersey to bring stories of the enslaved to life, from the Harriet Tubman Museum in Cape May and the Stoutsburg Cemetery in Mercer County to the Bainbridge House at Princeton University, and to Perth Amboy where slave ships docked and to Hopewell, an area where Black families were among its founders.
“I never learned about this in school,” says Mills in the film regarding the history of slavery in New Jersey, “If anything, we were taught to feel shame. And today…I feel nothing but pride and I feel empowered.”
The Price of Silence: The Forgotten Story of New Jersey’s Enslaved People is a production of Truehart Productions and Public Media NJ, Inc. Truehart’s Executive Producers are Ridgeley Hutchinson and Andrew Schmertz; Keyon Williams is producer/editor; Antoinetta Stallings is producer. Joe Lee is Executive in Charge for NJ PBS.

The 2022 NFL Draft is fast approaching.
It runs from April 28-30 in Las Vegas.
So let’s take a look at our latest first-round mock projection.
1. Jaguars — Edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan
A no-brainer pick here.
2. Lions — Edge rusher Travon Walker, Georgia
Somewhat of a surprise, as Walker goes ahead of Kayvon Thibodeaux.
3. Texans — OT Evan Neal, Alabama
Neal, Ickey Ekwonu, and Charles Cross are the top three tackles this year.
4. Jets — Edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux, Oregon
The Jets haven’t had a truly elite edge rusher since 2005, John Abraham’s last season with them.
5. Giants — OT Ickey Ekwonu, N.C. State
He will start immediately at right tackle, opposite Andrew Thomas.
6. Panthers — S Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame
No quarterback here. Hamilton might be the second-best overall player in this draft.
7. Giants (from Bears) — CB Ahmad Gardner, Cincinnati
The Giants can’t afford to keep James Bradberry, so Gardner will replace him.
8. Falcons — QB Malik Willis, Liberty
The replacement for Matt Ryan, probably sooner rather than later.
9. Seahawks (from Broncos) — QB Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh
The replacement for Russell Wilson, beginning this season.
10. Jets (from Seahawks) — CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU
A boom-or-bust prospect, but the Jets have issues at cornerback.
11. Commanders — CB Trent McDuffie, Washington
Is he big enough to thrive in the NFL?
12. Vikings — OT Charles Cross, Mississippi State
Perhaps a little low for him.
13. Texans (from Browns) — WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State
Now, if only they could sort out their quarterback situation, post-Deshaun Watson.
14. Ravens — C Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa
Clearly the best center in this draft.
15. Eagles (from Dolphins) — WR Chris Olave, Ohio State
A nice weapon for Jalen Hurts.
16. Saints (from Colts) — DL Jordan Davis, Georgia
Trading up for a quarterback is also possible.
17. Chargers — WR Drake London, USC
A really nice weapon for Justin Herbert.
18. Eagles (from Saints) — OT Trevor Penning, Northern Iowa
Can he make the adjustment to a much higher level of play in the NFL?
19. Saints (from Eagles) — QB Matt Corral, Mississippi
Instead of trading up for a quarterback, the Saints stay here and get Corral.
20. Steelers — OG Kenyon Green, Texas A&M
Clearly the best guard in this year’s draft.
21. Patriots — WR Jahan Dotson, Penn State
Mac Jones needs some playmaking help.
22. Packers (from Raiders) — LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia
The heartbeat of Georgia’s national championship defense last season.
23. Cardinals — CB Kaiir Elam, Florida
The next Patrick Peterson in Arizona?
24. Cowboys — OG Zion Johnson, Boston College
Dallas has done with drafting offensive linemen in recent years.
25. Bills — WR Jameson Williams, Alabama
He joins a win-now team, but he’s coming off a torn ACL, suffered in the national championship game.
26. Titans — OT Bernhard Raimann, Central Michigan
Not a big-name pick, but he’s a sleeper prospect to watch, in terms of a late first-rounder.
27. Buccaneers — Edge rusher George Karlaftis, Purdue
Todd Bowles will be thrilled if he falls this far.
28. Packers — WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas
This pick ought to make Aaron Rodgers happy.
29. Chiefs (from 49ers) — DL Devonte Wyatt, Georgia
Kansas City continues to address its defense.
30. Chiefs — Edge rusher Jermaine Johnson II, Florida State
A big-time threat off the edge for the Chiefs.
31. Bengals — LB Devin Lloyd, Utah
Has the ability to play multiple linebacker positions, according to his NFL.com scouting report.
32. Lions (from Rams) — WR Christian Watson, North Dakota State
Well, this is the same team that hit on Cooper Kupp as a third-round receiver out of Eastern Washington in 2017.

Welcome back to another season of the NFL Underdog Picks column. For those who are new, I am tasked with only picking underdog teams against the spread on a weekly basis. Last season, I finished with a 30-24 record. Things can be tricky the first week as we see how teams look after making offseason changes, but there is still money to be won! With that in mind, here are three underdogs to consider on the DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Buccaneers certainly had an interesting offseason. Tom Brady retired, then decided he wanted to play again. Rob Gronkowski also retired, but he has remained steadfast in his decision. They brought in Russell Gage and Julio Jones to add depth at wide receiver, and they could be needed more early on with Chris Godwin (knee) still working his way back from injury.
The Cowboys underwent changes of their own, losing Amari Cooper to the Browns. Michael Gallup (knee) will be out for Week 1, but their running game could be improved with Ezekiel Elliott healthy again. Brady being away from the team for part of the preseason could cause Tampa to have a slow start, and with the Cowboys being the home team, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them put the Buccaneers in a 0-1 hole out of the gate.
The Jaguars are coming off of an abysmal 3-14 record last year, which included them going 0-8 on the road. With the Urban Meyer coaching regime firmly in the rearview mirror, the team has higher hopes this season with Doug Pederson at the helm. Their offense should be much more dangerous in Trevor Lawrence’s second season in the league, with Travis Etienne finally healthy and the addition of Christian Kirk at wide receiver.
After a 7-10 record last season, it was clear the Commanders needed to make a change at quarterback. They brought in Carson Wentz, who had plenty of experience playing the Jaguars last season while a member of the Colts. In two games against them, he threw for a combined 365 yards and just one touchdown pass. It’s difficult to have much faith in Wentz considering how he’s played the last couple of seasons. With a much-improved coaching staff and improved talent around Lawrence, the Jaguars could finally snap their road losing streak.
The Lions found themselves as underdogs going into every one of their games last season. Their overall record was only 3-13-1, but they were a remarkable 10-7 against the spread. That included them going 5-3 against the spread at home, which is where they will begin their 2022 campaign.
Things are shaping up for the Lions to be a more dangerous team during head coach Dan Campbell’s second season. Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown came on during the second half last year, and they further bolstered their wide receiver group by signing DJ Chark. On the defensive side of the ball, their biggest addition is likely to be defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, who was selected with the second overall pick in the draft. As good as the Eagles look on paper, they are likely only going to go as far as the inconsistent Jalen Hurts can take them. If they overlook the Lions coming into this matchup, this could end up being a close game.
