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 Madison, 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 Madison, 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:

MADISON, NJ — Members of the Madison Borough Council members were given an update on the ongoing solar carport project earlier this week.
Jim Burnet provided an update, as well as requesting approval for an ordinance to secure funding to hire Talva Energy to do engineering, design, applications and construction management of a solar carport at the Madison Recreational Complex.
The ordinance, which approved allocating $89,000 to Talva Energy for consulting on the new structure, was unanimously approved by the board.
According to Burnet, one major change in the initial plan is that the project's size and scope have been reduced. The project was originally planned to include three separate solar carports that would generate approximately 2,200 MWh, provide energy for approximately 220 homes and account for approximately two percent of Madison's electricity output.
Under the new plan, that has been sized down to one single carport.
One of the reasons for the change, according to Burnet, was the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, which provided new financial incentives.
"That changed the finances for the way we were going to do the solar carports significantly. Originally we were going to do a land lease where a company would come in, design, build and maintain a solar facility on our property and we would take that solar energy at a set kilowatt hour rate," Burnet said.
However, under the Inflation Reduction Act, the borough is able to get anywhere between 30 and 40 percent of the cost of the project paid for by the federal government. This increased funding makes it possible for the borough to purchase the carport themselves.
"There are a number of benefits to doing it this way. It will be cash flow positive right off the bat. We won't have to pay money into it because the money that we would be getting from it would pay off if we were borrowing," Burnet said.
The carport is expected to cost around $1.8 million, with the borough expecting to pay it off within the next nine to twelve years.
Another advantage of constructing only one carport is that the borough will be able to determine which aspects of the design they like and dislike and will be able to make necessary changes before constructing another one.
According to Burnet, the solar panels will be able to power anywhere between 50 and 85 homes under the new plan. The structure above the Madison Recreational Complex would not harm any of the trees in the area, which was a concern, and would provide shaded parking spaces.
The plan's next steps include going before the planning board and the borough engineer for a courtesy review of the design. Burnet stated that the courtesy review should be completed by December, with the process continuing into early 2023.

Manhattan Building Co. has upsized its initial loan from real estate private equity firm Madison Realty Capital again to a total commitment of $395 million as it moves into its next phase of development at Emerson Lofts, a 1,089-unit, mixed-use property in Jersey City, N.J.
The amended loan will be used to complete the conversion of an existing warehouse building into a 140-unit multifamily property with 96 parking spaces and 36,500 square feet of retail space.
The Jersey City-based developer borrowed $168 million from Madison Realty Capital in November 2019 to complete the first phase of the fully approved, four-phase project at 315-326 15 St. In addition to the 26-story, 351-unit residential tower, the first phase included more than 10,000 square feet of retail, a community center, public park and parking. The tower, Hudson House, is 95 percent leased and consists of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Amenities include a heated outdoor pool, cabanas, outdoor movie theater, fitness center, yoga room and concierge services.
MBC upsized the loan to $228 million earlier this year for the second phase of the development, which is currently under construction. It will include a second 26-story tower with 338 apartments and 119 parking spaces.
The final phase of construction includes plans for a third high-rise residential property that is in pre-development. Further details on the tower and a timeline for its completion as well as the delivery of the warehouse conversion were not disclosed.
Emerson Lofts is located at the site of the former Emerson Radio factory and is situated near the Newport PATH train station and the entrance to the Holland tunnel connecting New Jersey to Manhattan. The property also has access to Interstate 78 and is close to Hoboken, N.J., as well as the Journal Square Transportation Center in Jersey City.
MBC has also built the nearby Soho Lofts, a 377-unit property completed in 2018 and sold to Roseland Residential Trust, now known as Veris Residential, in April 2019 for nearly $264 million, or $700,000 per unit. The developer, which focuses on Jersey City and Hoboken, built Cast Iron Lofts, a 387-unit community that is also near Emerson Lofts.
In October, Madison Realty Capital provided a $32 million loan to Vibrant Cities to refinance Pivot Apartments, a recently completed eight-story, 95-unit mixed-use property in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. The building was 69 percent leased at the time of the financing. It also has 4,900 square feet of ground-floor retail leased to three tenants.
A month earlier, Madison Realty Capital had provided a $315.6 million loan to Carpenter & Co., Inc., and Woodward Interests, LLC, to complete the renovation of the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences New Orleans. The 341-key hotel opened in July 2021 and is part of a 33-story mixed-use tower that has 92 residential towers on the top floors. As of September, half of the condos, which include one- to three-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom penthouses, had been sold.
Also in September, the firm provided an $85 million loan to The Related Group, BH Group, Teddy Sagi’s Globe Invest and Wanxiang Group Corp. for the acquisition and pre-development of a 6.51-acre land parcel with approved plans to develop a 51-unit luxury condo project on Fisher Island in Miami Beach, Fla. It’s the last remaining condo development site on the private island.

MADISON, NJ - Deb Starker provided an update on the restoration of the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts during the November 14 Borough Council meeting.
The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts occupies one of Madison’s many historic buildings, the James Library, built in 1899. The former home of the Madison Public Library, it has been the location of the Museum since 1970.
“It really is a lovely, magnificent building”, said Starker, the Executive Director of the METC, “And it requires a lot of TLC”.

Said TLC includes replacing the decorative finials, work on the copper gutters, and giving the museum a new slate roof. Starker noted that she was happy with how long the original roof lasted, as it had to be replaced only two years ago. There has been quite a bit of interior work, too. Considerable care has been taken to preserve some stenciling work, for example.
According to Starker, the renovations seen in the 2012 Renovation Plan totalled about $1.5 million. Most of this funding came from the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust, along with the Open Space, Recreation and Historic Preservation Advisory Committee of the Borough of Madison and the museum itself.
The Museum has many artifacts in collections, too, however its old collections room had to be vacated in 2020 after mold was discovered. Some of the 5,500 artifacts were rehoused in the Museum’s annex, and the rest went to off-site storage while the mold was successfully remediated.
A new storage area is presently in the works, to hopefully be finished and ready to go by 2024. It’s currently in its early construction stages. Several sources are funding this project, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Borough of Madison, and the METC Bruehne Trust.
Starker thanked the Council for their support, adding that “we take a lot of pride in the good care we take of our building”.

MADISON, NJ — An update was given on the status of the Dodge Field playground renovation plan, which was first announced earlier this fall.
The proposed playground would be the neighborhood's first ADA-compliant playground, as well as an inclusive space for the benefit and enjoyment of all children.
Councilwoman Debra Coen presented an updated report outlining the committee's progress since the project's announcement. According to Coen, the final park site plans have been delayed, but the borough expects them to arrive within the next few weeks.
The Dodge Field playground is located at 20-38 Greenwood Avenue in Madison.
According to Coen, the Dodge Field playground has not been renovated in nearly a decade. With the new updates planned by the borough, the space will be accessible to all children aged two to twelve.
The new playground will be designed to be as inclusive as possible for all children in the borough. According to a presentation, the updates will include interactive equipment such as musical instruments, swings, slides and a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, among other things.
The current playground structure's potential waste caused concern from some council members, which Coen addressed.
The playground's current equipment would be recycled and moved to another area of the borough."There is nothing wrong with the equipment. It's in good condition, but we would want the company to come in and take it out so that it stays secure and safe for the kids and then also repurpose it."
This project is anticipated to cost between $550,000 and $650,000 in total.
Madison is set to receive a $125,000 grant from Morris County Open Space Recreation and Historic Preservation. The borough also recently learned that the Morris County Parks Commission has agreed to work together to pursue a state grant, which would help with funding.
"We're hopefully in the next couple of days going to get that site plan from the company and we'll look it over as the playground committee and then share it with the council… and then the hope is to get out to bid and get a timeline barring supply chain issues," Coen said.
If everything goes according to plan, the council predicted that the renovation would be finished in the spring and the new playground would open in time for the summer of 2023.
The referendum, which is expected to cost $8 million, will include four different options. MADISON, NJ — An update on the nearly $80 million bond referendum that is expected to go before the Madison public early next year was provided at the recent Superintendent's Coffee meeting.According to Mark Schwarz, Superintendent of Madison Schools, a previous facilities assessment confirmed a slew of non-negotiable project priorities, the majority of which were related to failing infrastructure."You know that we hav...
MADISON, NJ — An update on the nearly $80 million bond referendum that is expected to go before the Madison public early next year was provided at the recent Superintendent's Coffee meeting.
According to Mark Schwarz, Superintendent of Madison Schools, a previous facilities assessment confirmed a slew of non-negotiable project priorities, the majority of which were related to failing infrastructure.
"You know that we have a great deal of need within the schools. There are certain areas where things are wonderful… But some of our other spaces are just quite abysmal," Schwarz said.
Among the necessary repairs are the roof at Madison High School and the removal of asbestos, which has been found in many spaces throughout the district.
The three-question referendum was first proposed by the school board earlier this fall and is expected to go before the public sometime in March.
According to Schwarz, the district requires the referendum in order to afford the necessary facility improvements.
"If we don't have some sort of referendum initiative, then our tax payers are going to bear the full cost of everything that we do, we won't be able to access any state matched funding," Schwarz said.
The Madison Public School's annual budget is only allowed to increase by two percent each year, making it essentially impossible for the district to afford the improvements on their own. With the referendum, the district is expected to receive up to 34 percent of matched state funding.
Additionally, with the current Madison school budget, it would be impossible to support the district's current programs while allocating the necessary funds to facilities, which typically receive one of the smallest portions of the budget.
"We developed this referendum process in an effort to be responsible, to provide the community with an opportunity to vote on a structured order of questions," Schwarz said.
The future referendum questions will provide tiered options to taxpayers:
According to Madison Public Schools Business Administrator Danielle Mancuso, the school district is still waiting for state approval on the referendum, with the decision expected within the first week of December.
The final approval will also clarify how much the referendum will affect all taxpayers in the borough.
"We anticipate those letters around December and then we will release more information regarding tax impact. For now, we have said that it is going to be about $100 per every $10 million and we will get more detailed information once we know exactly how much the state will be contributing," Mancuso said.
