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 Martinsville, 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 Martinsville, 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:

Chef Dave Hadley may be a New Jersey boy, but he’s made a name for himself out in Denver, Colorado. Growing up in Martinsville, an unincorporated community located within Bridgewater, Hadley was always surrounded by food—especially dishes tied to his Indian culture. With a mix of his father’s West Indian culture and mother’s South Indian culture, Hadley now uses both as inspiration in his own world of food.
“I hope to grow with the city for the next 10 to 20 years,” said Hadley. “I want to become a name or a staple in Denver.”
After dominating on the Food Network’s Chopped in 2017, Hadley took his winnings to make a personal mark on his culinary path. Samosa Shop, his new pop-up in Denver, combines his Indian and American backgrounds to put a twist on the popular fried pastry with a savory filling.
Now, Hadley is coming back to the Food Network for a third time (the second being on Chopped Champions) to show just how quick and creative he can be in the kitchen. Supermarket Stakeout contestants bribe grocery store customers for their bags and turn what they get into a specific dish—something Hadley feels is one of his strongest skills.
We caught up with Hadley to discuss his experience on the show, history in the kitchen, and upcoming pop-up coming to New Jersey.
Table Hopping: Where did your love for cooking start? David Hadley: When I was younger, my parents grew up feeding three kids. My dad and mom were never in the food industry. They were just always cooking for everybody and had this big hospitality feel to it. As I got older, me and all my guy friends wanted to be big sports stars, and my parents were very adamant on me pushing towards something more realistic and I got to go to the Culinary Institute of America.
TH: When did you make the jump from Jersey to Colorado? DH: I had to do a six-month internship somewhere and I chose to go to Aspen, Colorado. From there it flourished into this New Jersey kid staying in Denver and building my culinary career from there. I’ve been here trying to figure out where my spot in the food industry is.
TH: You have a history with cannabis-infused food. What made you interested in that? DH: I was working at cannabis facilities and working with edible production and working with people that were growing. As I was growing in the restaurant world, I was still trying to develop in this cannabis world and finding the balance between both, which is what I’m still doing.
I don’t sell myself 100 percent as the cannabis chef, because there’s people that have been doing this before me. I’m someone that’s just an advocate for it. This should be normalized instead of looked at as something different.
TH: And you took those ideas onto the Food Network. How did you end up being on Chopped and later on Chopped Champions? DH: I used to work for chef Biju Thomas who was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. He basically was the first guy to push me to do my own style of food. Two years later I was a sous chef at The Preservery in Denver and producers found me there. They were like, “Hey, we saw you at Biju’s and we think you’d be great on Chopped.” Working hard and pushing what I wanted to do is what helped me win Chopped. A lot of people tuned into my show in the beginning and they really liked the idea of the cannabis cookery, which got me on Chopped Champions.
TH: Now that you’re going to be on Supermarket Stakeout, you’re basically a Food Network veteran. DH: I just like competition. It’s not that I like doing shows, I just like being competitive and doing things that are like that. There’s only one of me and I am that competitive guy.
TH: And for Supermarket Stakeout, you’re basically just making a meal of what people come out of the grocery with? DH: You’re taking people’s groceries and using what they have to create a dish that represents the theme given. You don’t get to choose what you get, but what you do choose is how you speak to people, what they look like, how they interact with you. You could be getting dog food or acne cream and all of a sudden you’re like, “How do we make this into a grilled cheese?” But, I feel I’m the kind of guy that can create something great out of nothing that’s there.
TH: Was it odd filming this show during Covid? DH: It was obviously weird this season, because we were in Covid and we were wearing masks. We had to be Covid conscious. On other seasons people were going right up to these people’s carts and rummaging through and things like that. We had to be a little bit different.
TH: What was your favorite part about the competition on Supermarket Stakeout? DH: I had the best time with the people. Usually on shows like that you don’t become friends with anybody. It was nice because it was during Covid and it was hard to have that connection with people during the times of a pandemic. You become a part of a family because you’ve done something together. We were there on the set and just connecting over something together, that was why it was fun.
TH: Chopped vs. Stakeout. Was one more difficult than the other? DH: To be honest with you, Chopped is way harder. Like, 100 percent. But, maybe if I did Chopped after I did Supermarket Stakeout I would have said different. But I’m not really scared of anything anymore! At the end of the day, it’s all about the learning experiences.
TH: What’s next for you as you build your brand in Denver and elsewhere? DH: My new pop-up concept that I’ve been bringing to Denver, and soon New Jersey, is the Samosa Shop. It’s a mixture between my West Indian culture from my dad’s side and my South Indian culture from my mom’s side. It’s a blend of those flavors that bring Americanization to Indian food.
Most people think Samosa is the same pea and potatoes that you put together in a little hot pocket. For example, I made bacon, egg, and cheese and a sausage and peppers one. I’m creating pockets that are a little bit of something different to create my own flavor that people will recognize.
Chef Dave Hadley will appear on the Food Network’s Supermarket Stakeout on Tuesday, February 9 at 10 pm EST. A pop-up of his new Samosa Shop will be coming to New Jersey in early spring when he takes over the kitchen at Lombardi Pizza Co. in Martinsville, where he grew up. Chef Hadley will be serving samosas and Indian-style pizza, as well as a few other collaboration dishes with the restaurant. Check out his personal and Samosa Shop Instagram accounts for updates on his culinary journey.

BRIDGEWATER, NJ — For Martinsville native Melissa Szwarc, yoga is much more than a fitness adventure. The balanced practice helps center her mind and emotions and keeps her present in life and at home with her kids.
That is something she is looking to share with others at her new studio called Mana Power Yoga at 1958 Washington Valley Road in the Martinsville section of Bridgewater.
"It is always so satisfying seeing life long residents invest in themselves and their community by opening a business in Bridgewater," said Mayor Matthew Moench of the grand opening on Feb. 4. "I wish Melissa and her family nothing but success and prosperity."
While Szwarc held a grand opening earlier this month, she has been running her business with Mana Power Yoga since 2011 which offered retreats across the world.
Finding the location for her first yoga studio space happened "really organically." Szwarc was walking in town with her daughter when she saw the "for rent" sign.
Szwarc woke up that night at 3 a.m. and had already designed the entire studio space in her head and the schedule for classes.
She tapped her handy husband Steve, who is the owner of LMS Serves You, and he completely renovated the exterior and interior of the studio.
"My husband built my vision from the bottom to the top," said Szwarc.
Szwarc's career as a personal trainer and yoga instructor roots back to her extensive experience as a gymnast and collegiate cheerleader.
"I grew up a gymnast and started yoga because they were teaching headstands. That transitioned to the spiritual part of it what it does for the mind and emotions. The physical aspect is a secondary part of it," said Szwarc.
She started doing private yoga sessions and eventually taught group classes at gyms such as Eclipse.
This transitioned to her retreats to places such as Jamaica, the Poconos, Florida Keys, and more.
Now with her studio space, Szwarc can expand her practice to those 12 and up with plans to offer children's classes such as "Mommy and Me" in the future.
While the fitness aspect of yoga is important, Szwarc said the main purpose of yoga is to be present.
"Since having kids time goes so fast. Yoga helps me understand the importance of being present," said Szwarc who follows the saying "Practice yoga on your mat. And off your mat."
Mana Power Yoga offers group classes, private sessions, and workshops. Classes are offered daily except Fridays and are available for all levels.
