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 Moonachie, 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 Moonachie, 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:

An essential element of one of New York’s most iconic events is right here in New Jersey.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—which organizers expect to be “closer to its original form” this year after 2020’s scaled-down festivities—snakes through the streets of Manhattan each November, but the creative process happens at the Macy’s Parade Studio in Moonachie, located in Bergen County.
The 72,000-square-foot facility is a veritable “fantasy world,” where about 30 artisans work year-round to create the parade’s iconic floats, massive balloons and flashy costumes, says Rick Pomer, creative director for Macy’s Branded Entertainment.
“Soup to nuts, it’s all there,” he says of the studio, which moved to Moonachie in 2011 from the old Tootsie Roll factory in Hoboken. “It’s incredibly overwhelming how much creativity and imagination is at hand.”
On a typical day at the studio, the action starts early—around 7 am. Most artists and makers have more than one skill set, says Pomer. A sculptor, for example, might also paint, while a welder might have carpentry chops, too. At any given moment, one person might be sculpting giant blocks of foam in one area of the warehouse, while another is sewing costumes.
With 30 employees and a massive studio space, social distancing was never an issue, even in pre-pandemic times. Now, the facility requires masks and daily wellness checks for everyone working in-house on the upcoming 95th annual parade.
Each year, the team typically makes between four and six new floats, and between three and five giant balloons. The several dozen being reused are stored in a different, nearby facility, and are given touchups and refurbishments as the parade draws closer. Work on the 2021 parade began almost immediately after Santa gave his final wave at the 2020 event.

Among the new creations this year are a four-story-high balloon of 8-year-old Ada from the Netflix series Ada Twist, Scientist, and a Heinz gravy boat “floa-lloonicle,” a new type of creation that is part float, part balloon and part vehicle (and features some pretty fun-looking “gravy pirates” aboard). Then there are the perennial favorites, like Snoopy, the longest-running character balloon in the parade,
After the parade elements are completed in New Jersey comes the difficult task of transporting them into Manhattan. So how is it done?
“Everything is built in New Jersey and needs to go through the Lincoln Tunnel,” Pomer says. “They’re big, 3 1/2 stories tall. That’s not going through Lincoln Tunnel as is. Everything has to collapse to 8 1/2 feet wide by 12 1/2 feet tall.”
After a “giant convoy of trucks” takes the pieces through one tube of the tunnel, which is shut down to other drivers, they are reassembled on-site in Manhattan the night before the parade.
The action kicks off on Thanksgiving Day at 9 am at Central Park West and 77th Street. There are 2.5 miles of public viewing spots along the route, which ends at the Macy’s flagship in Herald Square. Vaccinations are not required for the general public watching the parade live, but vaccinations are required for volunteer participants and staff (with a few exceptions) that day.
The parade airs live on NBC, with Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker hosting.

A young restaurateur is making big changes to one of his Bergen County restaurants.
Tango Steak in Moonachie is an expanded version of El Tango Argentina Grill, BoozyBurbs reports.
Ariel Espejo opened the restaurant when he was just 23 years old.
The menu boasts Spanish delicacies such as:
El Tango — which has a second Englewood location — has 60 seats in its dining room and 40 on the patio, BoozyBurbs says.
Espejo was just 14 when he started working as a busboy at an Olive Garden in Paramus and then as a server at Burgerwood in Englewood. After that he worked as a teller at a TD Bank, and also moonlighted as a DJ.
Throughout each job he saved his money, and the big payoff came April 22, when Espejo opened El Tango in Moonachie.
"I have always wanted to be my own boss," Espejo told Daily Voice. "So growing up everything I did, I had that goal in mind."
Espejo's parents moved to Teaneck from their native Argentina so Espejo and his brother David could grow up in a land with more opportunity. His restaurant was a way of paying them back for their sacrifice, he said.
"They left all their family and friends behind so now I feel like I have the responsibility to make their trip worthwhile," Espejo said.
The young restaurateur also tries to incorporate his family in his business. The entire menu at "El Tango" is pulled directly from his mother Ivana's cookbook. She trains every new chef how to cook her dishes before they start.

Life continues to return to a pre-pandemic normal in New Jersey as COVID cases and hospitalizations keep dropping, but there is still uncertainty about what may happen months down the road.
According to Dr. Perry Halkitis, an infectious disease expert and Dean of the Rutgers University School of Public Health, the coronavirus won’t go away completely, but he is even more concerned about a possible new threat that could be looming on the horizon.
“I am worried about another virus emerging, an even more powerful virus emerging, another even more powerful respiratory virus that we have no control of, that does even more damage,” he said.
Halkitis said that’s because “we live in this global society where we’re moving back and forth and traveling back and forth and interacting with people all over the world, and we can only control what goes on in our own homes.”
He also noted as new COVID variants emerge they will still pose a threat, especially to the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, but the expectation is the virus will be weaker and weaker.
Halkitis said he believes future COVID variants will be less harmful than what we’ve seen already “but I know with 99.9% certainty that next fall there will be another surge, like there is a surge of flu, and people will die.”
“We may not have the death rate and the hospitalizations that we did in the beginning or recently, but it will be something we will have to learn to live with for the foreseeable future,” he said.
He said after what has happened with COVID over the past few years, “we know perfectly well that we need to pump more money into our Department of Health infrastructures all over the country.”
He added because a new deadly and fast-spreading pathogen is a real possibility we need to take action now in order to be ready.
“Hopefully that will follow and we will bring up to speed and modernize our efforts so that if the next one comes along we’re even better prepared to handle it,” he said.
He believes the medical community is aware of this issue and understands how important it is to be prepared for another serious pandemic threat, but this is not on most people’s radar.
“I think we could do a much better job, people like myself, people who are working on the front lines and actually putting forward and selling the work that we actually do, and the importance of the work that we actually do in keeping the population healthy,” he said.

Faropoint, a leading real estate investment firm focused on last-mile industrial properties in high population growth markets, on Wednesday announced it acquired 121 Moonachie Ave. — a 62,000-square-foot building in Moonachie — for $17.7 million.
“Northern New Jersey remains an attractive and competitive market for industrial investment, as the need for last-mile logistics and distribution centers near large population centers continues to rise,” said Orry Michael, acquisition associate at Faropoint. “Availability of functional space is limited across northern New Jersey and the Meadowlands. This lack of supply and growing demand will continue to lead to future rent growth.”
Faropoint told ROI-NJ earlier this year that more deals in the greater New York City market could be coming.
“Northern Jersey is our backyard,” Itay Ron, Faropoint’s senior vice president, Northeast market leader, said at the time. “Our U.S. headquarters are in Hoboken. It makes a lot of sense for us to buy in the greater New York metro area.”
One of the most active buyers of last-mile industrial properties across the U.S., Faropoint’s latest acquisition comes on the heels of a record-breaking year of activity in 2021. During that time, the firm deployed more than $730 million in 82 separate transactions to acquire 144 industrial buildings totaling 8.5 million square feet across the country.
The property at 121 Moonachie Ave. is located within close proximity to the high barrier-to-entry New York metropolitan area and provides easy access to Interstates 80 and 95. Brokers David Schechtman, David Benharouch and Ikey Betesh with Meridian Capital Group facilitated the sale.
“We loved working with the team at Faropoint to facilitate this transaction,” Benharouch said. “This deal is a great example of Faropoint’s execution capabilities and readiness to move faster than their peers to secure deals that fit their last-mile strategy.”
“Our goal, across all the markets that we are active in, is to provide feedback regarding any given opportunity within 24 hours from initial outreach,” said Vadim Greenberg, head of acquisitions at Faropoint. “We are able to do so, thanks to our proprietary in-house technology platform that aggregates and manages our deal pipeline using demographic scoring, industrial market analysis, satellite analysis and credit analysis.”
Faropoint has existing offices in Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Memphis, Cincinnati and Hoboken, and recently opened new offices in Miami this year.
