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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

If there is one piece of advice, I can give worth all the bitcoin in the world…here it is.
If you work in a small office or business and management approaches you with … “Hey you seem to know a lot about technology, how would you like to manage our technology? You can be our tech person!”
Politely say no thank you and run. Run as far and as fast as you can …
Why? Think about it, would you ask your accountant to perform heart surgery.
Managing technology for a small business can make or break the business. If you think I’m exaggerating, ask the accountant that came into the office after a storm to find out the power outage damaged the server and the backup drive. When they attempted to restore all the data, they didn’t realize the consumer grade backup service they subscribed to ran out of space and hadn’t backed up for the last 6 months. The blame was put squarely on the office manager that was given a role in which he did not have the skill set to accomplish. It wasn’t fair to give the responsibility of the entire business to a person incapable of performing such job skills.
Listen, I get it. Running a small business is hard enough without worrying about backups, viruses, security, application subscriptions, email, websites, databases, and the list goes on. The small business doesn’t have the luxury of hiring an internal technology staff. The burden usually falls on the owner, office manager, or someone given the additional job of managing technology.
So, understanding the giant scope and complexities of technology is the first step in solving the pain points of technology. The second step is knowing how to approach it. Your options are:
Managing technology for a small business is no small task. The key to becoming more independent when running your business is to allow experts to manage and partner with you.
Remember a collaborative relationship will turn your outsourced technology staff into your insourced technology staff. The truth is this ever-changing world of business is a challenge. After all, your technology platform is the lifeblood of your business whether you are an accountant, lawyer, doctor, or landscaper.

MADISON, NJ - The Madison Borough Council heard both support and opposition to the proposed extension to the Traction Line Trail during its August 8 meeting.
The Traction Line Trail runs parallel to New Jersey Transit Line rail tracks from Morristown to Madison. It was first constructed in 1986 and has had one extension so far, in 1997. The Trail itself begins at Morris Ave. and culminates at Danforth Road, and the current proposal would see it extended to Elm Street. Extensions like this one have been proposed twice, in 2012 and 2019, but both times the Madison Council elected not to move on.
According to Morris County Park Commission Director Denise Chaplick, the trail hosted between 40,000 and 90,000 users in 2021 depending on location surveyed, most of them bikers and joggers. Chaplick noted that there are only 40,000 a year at Danforth because “it terminates, it doesn’t really go anywhere”, and holds that the numbers will go up if the trail is extended.
Several community members spoke against the extension. Claire Whitcomb delved into the environmental impact caused by non-permeable surfaces and how many trees (34 according to resident Mary R. Lloyd) and local plants would have to be removed.
“I hope to learn more from the presentation but I don’t understand the need for spending $3 million on a 3200 foot bike trail when there’re roads that can be easily accessed without danger”, said Whitcomb.
Mary Wilson went another route. She recounted growing up with train tracks in her backyard and asked the Council to let the trees remain to keep “stupid kids” from getting into trouble. Resident Michael Strange, a frequent cyclist, called the cost “exorbitant”. Another concern put forth was the effect that non-permeable surfaces such as asphalt could have on the local aquifer.
Kathleen Caccavale spoke in support of the trails, refuting a claim Lloyd had made that such a trail could be used for criminals to more easily access, and noting that, according to the National Association of Realtors, nearby trail access increases property values
Maureen Byrne, who was calling in for the meeting, recommended that the Council discuss the extension further at a future meeting, as she shared some of the residents’ concerns. John Hoover asked for the Council to have the proposal vetted by groups including the Shade Tree Committee and Parks Advisory Committee before resubmitting, a sentiment which Claire Whitcomb had echoed.
Mayor Bob Conley agreed that the trail should be discussed further. “It’s very clear the benefits of trails, whether they’re for bikes or through the woods”, he said, “But it comes as a challenge, especially when it’s been a hundred years since the trolleys stopped running and the bikes started going”.

TRENTON – The Murphy Administration is asking residents and businesses to conserve water as the state continues to experience a persistent period of hot and dry weather.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, which is responsible for monitoring and protecting the state’s water supply to ensure ample clean, safe water for drinking and other needs, has been closely monitoring the drier than usual conditions this summer. While recent weather conditions have not significantly impacted drinking water supply indicators statewide, persistently hot and dry conditions could adversely affect water supplies. It is important that residents and businesses take proactive steps to help moderate their use of water to help ensure ample supplies throughout the summer.
"Now is the time for New Jersey to be especially mindful of water usage and proactively moderate our consumption,” said Commissioner of Environmental Protection Shawn M. LaTourette. “Although our reservoirs and other indicators are healthy, persistent hot and dry weather coupled with the high water demands of summer can quickly impact water supply. Simple steps, like reducing lawn and landscape watering, go a long way in preserving our water supplies and avoiding the necessity of significant restrictive measures.”
Current water demands are being met and New Jersey’s water systems are capable of handling periods of low precipitation. Reservoir levels are near long-term averages for this time of year and groundwater supplies are near normal, with the central and southern portions of the state tending to be drier. Local conditions can vary, so it is normal for individual water systems and municipalities to periodically request that their customers reduce water use.
It is important that residents and businesses take proactive steps to help moderate their use of water to help ensure ample supplies throughout the summer.

MADISON, NJ - What would you do if you won $12,700 on a game show?
That’s the question Brianne Barker is looking for an answer to. The Drew University biology professor is finally able to talk about her experience on Jeopardy, after her episode aired July 27.
Barker has taken the once-yearly prequalifying tests for Jeopardy for over a decade, and in 2021, she passed both qualifiers and her screening interview and was placed in the contestant pool. According to Barker, this was actually her second time in the pool, as she entered in 2018 but was not called upon to be a contestant. This time, she got the call, receiving a text in April that she’d been chosen.
“I was so excited and happy to receive that text; I was also a little bit panicked, it was right at the end of the semester and I couldn’t do the preparation and reading that I had always hoped for”, said Barker.
In mid-May, Barker flew out to Culver City, California to take part in the filming. After a few rehearsals and some promo filming, Barker took to the podium on May 17 to give it her best. “I kept having to remind myself, this is really happening, throughout the day”, she said of her arrival at the studio. She spent most of the afternoon either in the makeup chair or twiddling her thumbs in the audience as she waited for her game, which was to be the third of five that day.
According to Barker, she had a bad habit of hitting the buzzer too early, which would disable the system for a few seconds and allow other contestants to answer themselves. Barker was in second entering Final Jeopardy, and won when everyone got the question wrong, and she bet conservatively. Barker won $11,700, and was visibly surprised to win, to the point where host Ken Jennings even pointed it out.
“The dream was continuing”, she said, “Everyone in backstage was calling me Champ”.
Barker placed third in the next game, which, despite airing on July 28 was actually filmed just a few minutes after her victory. She received $1,000 for the third place run, totaling $12,700.
After her game ended in a loss, she spent one last game in the audience, had dinner with a few contestants, and flew home the next morning. She and the eleven other participants that day exchanged numbers and talk frequently.
Barker isn’t quite sure what she’ll do with the money. She’s considering a trip, but where to hasn’t been determined. However, she said she most treasures the experience.
“It’s been such a great time, and it’s cool to hear from everyone throughout my life how much they enjoyed watching it that…I’ll take it”, she said, “I couldn’t even imagine all the things that have come from it, so it’s been wonderful”.

Madison, NJ (August 05, 2022) – A 64-year-old pedestrian is in the hospital after she was struck by a driver that fled the scene on Thursday, August 4th in Morris County.
The woman was hit at about 5:20 p.m. on Main Street in the area of Waverly Place in Madison.
She was transported to Morristown Medical Center for treatment of injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.
After hitting the victim, the driver turned down Waverly Place without stopping to render aid or notify the authorities.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Each pedestrian injury case is different and the significance of the claim hinges on the nature and degree of the pedestrian’s injuries. The claim’s value consists of their medical expenses and lost income, combined with any additional damages.
These are added together with any subjective, non-economic losses like pain, suffering, and reduced quality of life.
Typical forms of compensation usually awarded to injured pedestrians include:
In some instances, victims might be entitled to bring a suit for recovery against a third party, such as the town, county, or city where the accident took place in the event that dangerous road conditions or a poorly designed intersection played a role.
