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 Maywood, 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 Maywood, 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:

After nearly two years of discussions, the state has ruled that beginning this fall, Maywood students will attend Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford instead of Hackensack High School.
The decision was made and formally filed by the New Jersey Commissioner of Education earlier this week, but state regulations require a three-day waiting period before the public is notified, according to a statement issued by Superintendents Dario Sforza of Becton and Michael Jordan of Maywood.
The new arrangement calls for Maywood freshmen students to attend Becton this fall.
Despite the proposed switch, all Maywood students already at Hackensack High will be able to finish there and graduate with their classmates. Maywood has about 100 eighth-grade graduates each year.
According to the press release, the commissioner found that there would be “no substantial negative impact upon severing the sending-receiving relationship between Maywood and Hackensack” and that this will “alleviate the problem of overcrowding at Hackensack High School.”
“It has been a true collaborative effort from all stakeholders and a testament to what can be accomplished when one places the interest and education of students first,” the statement reads.
There will be open house visitations and information sessions for parents and students scheduled in the near future to “allow for a very smooth transition for both districts.”
Both districts approved the plans for this arrangement at their respective Board of Education meetings in July.
Hackensack had been absorbing Maywood's students since 1969 without a formal agreement, Jordan said at that time. When the two districts signed a formal contract in 2010, the tuition was set at $13,125 per student, with a 2% increase each year.
As the seven-year deal neared expiration, Maywood's intention was to renew the agreement with a lower rate, but it rebuffed Hackensack's offer of a 5% reduction and sought new proposals from Paramus, Dumont, Midland Park and Becton, which serves students of East Rutherford and Carlstadt.
Becton has agreed to a 10-year deal with a starting rate of $10,500 per student. At year five, tuition will increase 2% each year and cap at $11,800 per student in the deal's 10th year.

MAYWOOD – Last month the Borough Council held a special meeting to take care of just one matter: dismissing the borough administrator.
This week they had another special meeting to hire her replacement: Donna Puglisi, a North Haledon council president who works as the recreation director in Elmwood Park.
She replaces Roberta Stern, who had held the post for more than eight years. The council voted unanimously on June 30 to let her go. During the meeting, held via Zoom, Stern said that she was “very disappointed and quite surprised” by the decision.
“I recognize with the change in administration, other changes often follow,” Stern said. “During my tenure, I’ve always acted in the best interest of the residents of Maywood.”
Mayor Richard Bolan called Stern a "journeyman during a time when our town had a need for that" before going on to say that the governing body now has "a new focus so a change was needed for our new direction."
At a special meeting Friday, the council appointed Puglisi. Bolan said there were 18 applicants and that the hiring committee interviewed four people.
Bolan called Puglisi "energetic" and "motivated to move Maywood in the right direction." He noted that she has worked for 20 years in municipal government and is a certified public manager.
"She has an enthusiasm for the position to serve the town well," Bolan said. "Her ambition is for the path in front of us and we are happy to have her."
Puglisi has worked in Elmwood Park as the recreation director for nearly a dozen years and has served on the council in North Haledon since 1999.
One resident, Susanne Iosbst, expressed displeasure with the change. As a member of the pool committee, Iosbst said, she didn’t always agree with Stern, but she was a woman who got things done. Iosbst said she didn't “see anything in her performance that warrants" her removal.
Puglisi isn’t the only borough official with ties to Elmwood Park. Bolan previously served as a building and construction official in the borough and during that time there was some overlap with projects between their departments, he said.
Borough officials in Elmwood Park confirmed that Puglisi would be leaving her post there.

Scott Riker of the Maywood suburb of Newark, NJ is a certified umpire for softball and baseball, and a softball coach. In this article Scott Riker explains what it takes to become a certified umpire.
It’s an understatement to say that umpires play a hugely important role in baseball. They are responsible for making sure that the game is played fairly and within the rules. Without umpires, Scott Riker of the Maywood suburb of Newark explains that there would be no way to enforce penalties or keep track of balls and strikes. But for those looking to don the umpire’s uniform in an official capacity, you must first complete a training program and pass a certification test before you can officiate games.
Scott Riker of the Maywood suburb of Newark explains that there are many different umpire schools across the country that offer these programs, but each school has its own examination process. Here Scott takes a look at how umpires become certified and explores the intricate details of these training programs. He’ll also explore the testing process to get a better grasp of the knowledge umpires must have to officiate games.
Who Can Become an Umpire?
Scott Riker of the Maywood suburb of Newark explains that in order to become an umpire, you must be at least 18 years old. There is no upper age limit but you must be physically able to keep up with the pace of the game. You also need to have a basic knowledge of baseball rules and regulations. Other than that, pretty much anyone can become an umpire.
You do not need any previous experience as an umpire or player, although it can certainly help your chances if you have some background in either one. Most people who become umpires have a deep love for the game and want to be involved in some way. They may not be skilled at playing baseball but by offering their knowledge, they can participate and help.
Once someone decides to become an umpire, their first step is to find and enroll in an accredited training program. Scott Riker notes that these programs range in length from several weeks to several months but they all share one common goal: to prepare their students for the certification exam.
The curriculum of these programs varies depending on the school but they will typically cover topics such as:
Prospective umpires spend several weeks studying the intricacies of these topics, learning through role-playing activities, lectures, and hands-on lessons.
The Certification Exam
Scott Riker of the Maywood suburb of Newark explains that after completing an umpire training course, hopeful umpires must then pass a certification exam administered by their baseball training program. The exam covers all aspects of being an umpire and tests their knowledge of baseball rules as well as your understanding of proper mechanics and positioning.
The test is typically divided into two parts—a written portion and an oral portion. The written portion covers topics such as rulebook scenarios and judgment call questions while the oral portion focuses more on practical application with instructors simulating live game situations. To pass the examination, you must receive a passing score on both sections
After finishing the test, Scott Riker says that applications usually receive their scores within a few weeks. If they passed the exam, they are now considered certified umpires and can begin officiating games. Whenever umpires apply for jobs on pro or minor league teams, they must provide proof of their certification and training.
What Traits Make Someone a Good Umpire?
In order to be a successful umpire, applicants must have certain qualities such as:
With these skills in hand, anyone can become an umpire.
Umpires play a vital role in baseball and must go through an extensive training process before they can officiate games. Scott Riker of Newark explains that they need to have a deep knowledge of the rules as well as good judgment and communication skills. If you think you have what it takes to become an umpire, look into enrolling in an accredited training program today!

Maywood, NJ – The former Maywood Center for Health and Rehabilitation, located at 100 W. Magnolia Avenue, is now Atlas Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center at Maywood.
New Jersey-based Atlas Healthcare, a leading provider of long-term care, clinical services and rehabilitation care, has purchased the 120-bed short-term subacute rehabilitation and long-term care facility. Built and opened in 2007, the facility is the only one of its kind in the township.
Atlas’ co-founders and managing partners Phil Bak and Sam Goldberger also own and operate three South Jersey facilities, one of which offers the largest ventilator unit in the state. Since 2013, they have a proven track record of transforming underperforming nursing homes into “above average quality” Five-Star facilities, as recognized by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Five-Star Quality Rating System.
“As experienced owner-operators we are committed to the delivery of highly individualized, client-centered care and providing the best possible experience to those we serve and the families who entrust their loved ones to us,” said Bak. “We employ a hands-on management approach, and we strive for excellence in all that we do.”
“We are aware of the wonderful reputation the Maywood facility has earned throughout the greater-Bergen County area,” said Goldberger. “We look forward to growing that reputation by building relationships in the local community and advancing the clinical capabilities of the facility.”
The new owner-operators have hired experienced Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA) Eli Finkelstein to oversee the day-to-day operations. Finkelstein is committed to deliver high-quality care and rehabilitation services that yield the best outcomes for those in their care.
Finkelstein previously served as administrator of Autumn Lake Healthcare at Oceanview in Cape May County, which under his leadership earned and maintained a Five Star CMS rating and consistently met or exceeded rigorous state and federal regulatory standards for long term care providers.
“I enjoy engaging with residents and families and am committed to working closely with our dedicated staff and providing the resources they need to do their jobs well,” said Finkelstein. “Our management team also understands that the pandemic is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, and we are committed to protecting our residents while keeping their families informed.”
Atlas Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center’s highly skilled clinical staff includes a full-time nurse practitioner and a full-time registered nurse, who is trained in infection prevention and control. Also, onsite are a pulmonologist and a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, who treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the respiratory system, brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The Center offers highly specialized services, including bariatric care, wound care, and tracheostomy care.
Atlas’ newly appointed medical director Dr. Stefanos Pantagis, is an experienced geriatrics and longevity treatment specialist who has been on the Centers’ staff since 2012. Pantagis is board certified in family medicine geriatrics and pain palliative care and is affiliated with several Bergen County hospitals. He also serves as an assistant professor of family medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
“As the only facility of its kind in the borough, Atlas Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center at Maywood provides a valuable service to our community,” said Pantagis. “I look forward to working closely with Atlas management team members, who are committed to providing superior specialized care for their residents.”
