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 Lincoln Park, 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 Lincoln Park, 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:

JERSEY CITY, NJ- The Jersey City Municipal Council is moving to make traffic and parking changes in areas near Journal Square and Lincoln Park.
The Jersey City Council introduced an ordinance at its September 8 that would prohibit right turns on red signals at the intersection of Duncan Avenue, Mallory Avenue, and Lakeview drive at the Northeast corner of Lincoln Park.
The purpose of this ordinance, advocates for it said, is to update traffic and parking regulations as part of the Duncan Avenue bike lane project, which will convert the existing conventional striped bike lanes into a protected two-way cycle-track on the Southern side of the street.

The ordinance would also prohibit parking at all times on Duncan Avenue from Route 1 & 9 to Lookout Drive.
Additionally, the City Council has also introduced an ordinance that would permit on-street parking on the West side of Baldwin Avenue between Washburn Street and Route 139.
Currently, on-street parking is prohibited on Baldwin starting at Prospect Street and continuing until Route 139. The proposal would end that ban at Washburn Street, allowing on-street parking on the West side of the street until Baldwin Avenue reaches Route 139.
At the Caucus Meeting on September 5, Ward C Councilman Richard Boggiano asked Director of Traffic Engineering Jennifer Wong if residents at recent community meeting earlier in the day were on board with the changes being made. Wong confirmed they were okay with them.
The ordinances will likely be up for a public hearing and final vote at the next meeting of the City Council. That will be on September 20 at 7 p.m. at City Hall at 280 Grove Street, with more information at jerseycitynj.gov.

NEWARK, NJ — A big wave of federal funding is coming to help restore Lincoln Park in Newark.
Last week, the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) announced that $3,550,000 in federal funding will be made available to Newark for the “Lincoln Park Restoration Project,” which will provide a much-needed facelift to the namesake community’s green space.
U.S. senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker – a Newark resident – helped secure the funding as part of the federal government’s Fiscal Year 2023 omnibus funding bill.
Booker said the funding for Lincoln Park and other projects in New Jersey will “provide major benefits” to communities across the state.
“I am proud to have fought to ensure this funding was included and am grateful for the organizations, community leaders, and elected officials who are working tirelessly to advance these critical initiatives,” Booker said.
When the Senate passed the funding bill in December, Menendez said that more than $181 million is coming New Jersey’s way to be spent on community projects such as the Lincoln Park restoration plan.
“This is a major investment in communities across New Jersey,” Menendez said.
Newark Mayor Ras Baraka thanked the senators for their support in funneling federal funding to Lincoln Park.
“Thanks to their advocacy and support, the redevelopment of Lincoln Park will not only enhance the economic vitality of the city, but will also provide affordable housing, additional employment opportunities, and enhanced access to the arts for our residents,” Baraka said.
“Ultimately, this project will renovate and upgrade the historic Lincoln Park to accelerate reemergence of this historic neighborhood as an energetic, healthy and empowered arts and culture-centered community,” the mayor added.
According to the LPCCD, Lincoln Park, a National Historic Register landmark, has served a wide array of the city’s residents for more than 300 years as one of Newark’s original colonial-era ‘Commons’ public gathering places – the South Commons – was renamed as Lincoln Park to commemorate Abraham Lincoln’s visit to the area in 1861.

For more than a decade, the owners of Gemini have lovingly admired the Irish tavern across the street.
Four Farthings Tavern & Grill, which opened in 1963, took its name from Lord of the Rings and represented a particular type of Chicago bar, one with odes to Ireland, a full menu of ribs and chops, and a private room for parties. The last few years have seen the bars around Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park turn over. Gamekeepers, Stanley’s Tap, and Sedgwick’s have long departed.
During the pandemic, Four Farthings, which had passed hands a few times over the years, also called it quits. That provided the owners of Gemini, Ballyhoo Hospitality, an opportunity. Founder Ryan O’Donnell and company have been running Gemini for 13 years, and in 2017 they renovated, showing the Lincoln Park community they wanted to stay even as other businesses turned over.
“When are you taking it over?” O’Donnell recalls customers asking him. “Why can’t you do something there?
“Trust me I want to, and hopefully I will someday.”
Ballyhoo had to wait a dozen years, but finally struck an agreement to lease the creaky space on the corner of Lincoln, Cleveland, and Dickens. Ballyhoo plans on opening DeNuccis in late spring or early summer at 503 W. Dickens Avenue (crews moved the entrance from Cleveland, hence the new address). O’Donnell describes the new venture as an “Italian Gemini.” He sees an absence of red sauce Italian restaurants in the neighborhood and wants to bring New Jersey and New York vibes to the menu, as opposed to the European focus at Ballyhoo’s Lakeview restaurant, Coda di Volpe.
In January, Ballyhoo opened Pizza by Sal in suburban Wilmette, a pizzeria with two main pies. The main style is a 16-inch pie is a bit reminiscent of big and floppy New York-style pizzas with a modern edge. They’re bringing the same pizza to Lincoln Park. There’s also a Sicilian gluten-free pie that pizzaiolo Salvadore “Sal” Lo Cascio is quite proud of creating. Lo Cascio, who worked at Forno Rosso — one of the city’s premier Neopolitan pizza makers — also created the pies for Coda di Volpe.
But while DeNuccis is near Lincoln Park High School this isn’t a student’s after-school hangout. Like Gemini, the new restaurant will be family-friendly, but there’s a bar and elements aimed at a more adult crowd with chicken and veal in either Piccata. Marsala, or parmigiano. While pasta won’t be made on premises, O’Donnell says they’ll find the best dried pasta available for an impressive variety of family-style offerings. O’Donnell is excited about the Sunday gravy with meatballs.
They plan on serving dinner seven days a week and weekend lunch: “We’ll let Gemini deal with the brunch crowd,” O’Donnell says.
Gemini opened in 2009 and has developed into a prototype Chicago neighborhood restaurant with a core group of loyal customers. While O’Donnell won’t share how much they invested into the remodel, he says crews gutted the space. Besides the new entrance, they added a takeout window — but they still saved the bar’s old millwork. The bar top’s made of stone quartz. A 96-seat patio will also debut along Cleveland and Dickens: “We definitely improved the owner’s building and added a lot of value in what we did,” O’Donnell says.
Ballyhoo has focused on the suburbs (Sophia Steak, Pomeroy, Buck Russell’s) since the pandemic but has collaborated on one of the city’s biggest openings, Andros Taverna in Logan Square. O’Donnell admits that he’d “be lying if I said I wasn’t scared or anxious about it.”
He says the pandemic conditions forced Ballyhoo to work smarter and rethink how it operate. DeNuccis represents a step forward, and he’s hopeful Lincoln Park appreciates their investment.
DeNuccis, 503 W. Dickens Avenue, scheduled for a late spring or summer opening.

NEWARK, NJ — A Newark nonprofit recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with “a little something special” at Newark Symphony Hall.
The Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) – which empowers “visionaries and community activists” to maintain the vibrancy of the Lincoln Park neighborhood – marked its second decade in the city by hosting a gala event at New Jersey’s largest and oldest Black-led arts and entertainment venue.
