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 Mahwah, 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 Mahwah, 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:

The Port Authority is activating electronic tolls at the bridge. But the new system has a drawback. FORT LEE, NJ — In an effort to continue modernizing its tolling infrastructure, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is activating a new cashless toll collection system at the George Washington Bridge on July 10, the agency said in a news release."Cashless transactions are no longer a thing of the future in this age of touchless financial transactions, and for non-E-ZPass customers that convenience of modern...
FORT LEE, NJ — In an effort to continue modernizing its tolling infrastructure, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is activating a new cashless toll collection system at the George Washington Bridge on July 10, the agency said in a news release.
"Cashless transactions are no longer a thing of the future in this age of touchless financial transactions, and for non-E-ZPass customers that convenience of modern life has now come to our 90-year-old George Washington Bridge," agency Chair Kevin O'Toole said in the news release. "We are extremely pleased with the activation of this best-in-class, all-electronic technology that will assure quick, accurate, electronic toll billing at the GWB."
A drawback with the new system, however, is that the carpool discount plan will end, due to the "impracticality," the Port Authority said, of electronically determining the number of passengers in a vehicle. E-ZPass customers still receive toll discounts that are less than the bill-by-mail rate, the agency added.
"Cashless is good, but carpool-less is bad," 5th District Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D) said in a statement, adding that the technology exists in other states that captures how many people are in a vehicle. "It doesn't make any sense to me, and it's ridiculous that the Port Authority is trying to saddle hard-working commuters with new tolls right now, especially at a time when we're trying to make life more affordable."
The Port Authority transitioned to all-electronic tolling at the Holland Tunnel in 2020, and the bridge, which is used by more trucks to cross the Hudson River into New York City than the agency's other two Hudson River crossings combined, will be the largest and busiest of the three crossings to implement the new toll system, the agency said.
A new cashless toll system at the agency's remaining Hudson River crossing, the Lincoln Tunnel, will be implemented by the end of the year. All three systems were approved in 2019 by the agency's Board of Commissioners, the agency said.
Once the systems are activated, motorists will not need to stop or slow on approach; overhead cameras will capture license plate images to ensure toll payment by mail for non-E-ZPass customers, all as part of an effort to improve traffic congestion. Additionally, a new "Tolls NY" smartphone app will give users access to customer service for tolling transactions, the agency said.
A GoFundMe page organized by Stephen Halpern's father has raised over $219,000 for medical costs.

FORT LEE, NJ— School art teacher Stephen Halpern, who has engendered a passion for art his students and touched countless lives, spent at least five weeks in a cardiac arrest-induced coma, his family, who is from Fort Lee, wrote on a GoFundMe page that has raised over $219,000 so far to help cover medical expenses.
As of Tuesday, in fact, more than 1,300 friends, relatives, classmates and others donated to the GoFundMe campaign, which was organized by Halpern's father Jerry Halpern on May 22. In an email update to Patch on Sunday, Jerry Halpern said that Stephen is still in a coma, and that he and his family are hopeful he will emerge soon.
"We have been so humbled by the outpouring of love and support for Stephen," Jerry Halpern said in the email.
In an earlier update on June 1, the family wrote that Stephen Halpern had stabilized medically and was moved to a long-term acute care hospital after being in an ICU for three and a half weeks.
"We are steadfast in knowing in our hearts that he will recover. The world needs Stephen back," his family wrote. "We look forward to the day when he is fully healed."
Halpern's family wrote that asking for financial support is not in their nature, though they want to make sure Stephen Halpern has the best possible care once he is discharged from the hospital.
"Any donation, large or small, would benefit Stephen's recovery," his family wrote, adding that caring for him in the years to come could cost several hundred thousands of dollars.
Funds raised, his family wrote, will cover hospital costs beyond Stephen Halpern's insurance coverage, skilled nursing care and rehabilitation in the future, and meals and transportation for him and his family.
"We firmly believe that all of the positivity we have received in the past few weeks has given Stephen the strength to continue fighting," his family wrote. "It might be a long road ahead, but Stephen is a resilient fighter, and he will make it through this stronger than ever."

Parsippany, NJ, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lincoln Educational Services Corporation ( LINC), a national leader in specialized technical training, marked its 75th anniversary on Thursday, May 5th, at the Avenue A Club in Newark, New Jersey, the city where Lincoln Tech opened its first campus in 1946. Alumni, employer partners, political figures, and past and current members of Lincoln’s leadership were on hand to celebrate a tradition of career training excellence dating back to the end of World War II. Hundreds of thousands of students have graduated from Lincoln schools since its inception.
“This was such an exciting night for all of us at Lincoln Tech,” says Scott Shaw, Lincoln Tech’s President and CEO. “What an honor to have shared the evening with so many who influenced, and were influenced by, Lincoln’s rich history. We were especially privileged to be joined by Jeff Davies, the son of Lincoln’s founder.”
Davies’s father, entrepreneur J. Warren Davies, opened the first Lincoln Tech campus on Newark’s Market Street in 1946. He wanted to assist World War II veterans convert the skills they had built in the military into career skills back home in America.
Among the speakers was Lincoln Tech alum Carlton Rose, President of Global Fleet Maintenance and Engineering for UPS. Rose is a graduate of Lincoln Tech’s Indianapolis campus, where Diesel and Truck Technology training helped him build the skills and launch a career that would eventually lead him to play a pivotal role with the global shipping leader. Rose is now a member of Lincoln’s Board of Directors.
“To be able to sit on the Board of the school where you walked the halls and worked in the shops is [a responsibility] I don’t take lightly,” Rose said. “In the role that we play at Lincoln, [we] have the opportunity to change people’s career paths and their lives.”
Rose himself has hired dozens of Lincoln Tech graduates for positions with UPS over the last 30 years, adding, “it’s always an honor to hire Lincoln students.”
Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), a national organization representing postsecondary career education schools, was represented by the group’s President and CEO Jason Altmire. “I hope you understand how valuable the work is that you’re doing,” Altmire told the audience. “[It is] an inspiration to me and so many others, and I truly appreciate the opportunity to be here tonight.”
The evening featured Skeery Jones of iHeart Radio who served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, as well as a number of additional guest speakers including:
