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 Paramus, 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 Paramus, 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:

Malibu Barbie may hail from California, but for the next two weeks she’ll be a Jersey girl.
The Barbie Malibu Pop-Up Truck is continuing its 2022 tour with a stop on Saturday, June 4, in Edison at Menlo Park Mall, and on Saturday, June 11, in Paramus at Westfield Garden State Plaza.
In Edison, the truck will be parked in the grassy area near Macy’s from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. In Paramus, it will be parked around the corner from the mall entrance near Capital Grille from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Visitors can purchase retro-inspired merchandise by credit card only ranging from $12 to $75 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Malibu Barbie. Popular items include denim jackets embroidered with the Barbie logo, pink hoodies with the Barbie logo, tie-dye bucket hats, beach towels, tote bags, enamel pins, embroidered patches and mugs.
“Everything is beachy, laid-back vibes,” said operations manager Hannie Peng. “The Malibu Barbie theme is just a beloved one for Barbie fans — it doesn’t have to be just for the California girl. Anyone can relate to her free spirit and her love of fun in the sun.”
That’s been evident from truck visitors, who often dress in Barbie-themed garb. Many visitors are adults who grew up playing with Barbies, and bring their children or grandchildren to the truck with them, Peng said.
“We attract a lot of the older generations because they’re like, ‘I haven’t seen this stuff in so long and now I get the chance to get the merch I didn’t get when I was younger,’ “ she continued.
The Barbie pop-up truck launched in the fall of 2019 with its Barbie Truck Totally Throwback Tour, which was extended into last summer due to the pandemic. Merchandise was 1980s and '90s themed, with items such as fanny packs.
After the Malibu Barbie tour concludes, a new Barbie theme and line of merchandise will be announced for the next tour.
The truck, which has now been to over 50 cities, began as a celebration of Barbie’s 60th birthday, as well as a re-introduction to the Barbie brand following its new focus on inclusivity.
“Her image has changed and her whole motto now is ‘you can be whoever you want to be,’ so we thought it was a good time to reintroduce Barbie to the world,” Peng said. “There isn’t a ton of Barbie merch, so we thought it was a good way to let the Barbie fans wear their love for Barbie.”
Go: Saturday, June 4 in Edison at Menlo Park Mall in the grassy area near Macy’s from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, June 11 in Paramus at Westfield Garden State Plaza around the corner from the mall entrance near Capital Grille from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Westfield Garden State Plaza is working to become a North Jersey food destination.
In the last month two new restaurants have opened in what the mall calls "the restaurant district": Seasons 52, a grill and wine bar, and Eddie V's, a 9,630-square-foot seafood and steak restaurant. And this fall, Fogo de Chao, a two-story Brazilian steakhouse and bar, is slated to open in the district. All are national chains.
And here comes still another: Sa’Moto, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto's pan-Asian restaurant. The restaurant, which replaces a Kids Foot Locker shop, is scheduled to open in six to eight months.
“The restaurant district is unlike most food courts; it offers elevated sit-down restaurants, not just grab-and-go meals,” said Lisa Hermann, senior director of marketing for the Garden State Plaza.
In case you're not a familiar with Morimoto: He is a Japan-born celebrity chef who has received numerous awards including a James Beard Foundation Award and a Michelin star, and his restaurant Morimoto Napa was named one of the "Best US Restaurant Openings" by Food & Wine. He has authored two cookbooks — "Mastering The Art of Japanese Home Cooking" (Ecco, 2016) and "Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking" (DK, 2007).
There are branches of Sa' Moto in Manhattan and West Hollywood. The menus feature dim sum items such as spicy chicken wonton and crab spring rolls as well as appetizers like popcorn shrimp and spicy edamame. Ramen dishes include chicken wonton with ramen noodles and a miso-glazed fried tofu vegan soup.

PARAMUS, NJ - It’s a testament to the belief in one another, as well as hard work and dedication that the Paramus High School baseball program was able to improve their win total by nine games from the 2021 to the 2022 season.
First year Spartan head coach Douglas Aday recalls some keys to success for his team this spring.
“I think that getting off to a hot start was instrumental for our program and our confidence,’’ Aday said. “We had big wins early on against Teaneck and Ramapo, both of which were top ten teams in the North Jersey top 25 rankings.
“As the year progressed, wins against Pascack Valley and Union City helped keep us going and focused on the year at hand. What stood out to me was the confidence and willingness of our players to challenge anyone on our schedule.’’
Leadership was, of course, prevalent for the Spartans this year.
“Nicky Avagnano (senior, utility player, First Team All-Freedom Division, Third Team All-County) was our leader on and off the field,’’ Aday said. “He’s the first player at practice and the last to leave. He hit third for us and was a force to be reckoned with in the middle of our lineup. Nicky will be playing college baseball at Stockton University next fall.
“Maresuke Koiwai (senior, short stop, Second Team All-Freedom) was tremendous at short stop for us this spring. Maresuke, in my opinion, was the best short stop in the field in all of Bergen County. His emergence in the field was a tremendous asset for our team. Matthew Morra (junior, pitcher, First Team All-Freedom, Third Team All-County) was our ace this spring and did not disappoint. His 1.50 ERA was tremendous. Matt had six complete games this spring and dominated the competition. We look forward to seeing Matt continue to grow next spring when he is a senior.’’
A member of the senior class was among the student athletes on the roster who showed steady improvement during this recently concluded season.
"Jared Ferrar (senior, catcher) caught every game but one for us this spring,’’ Aday said. “His bat only got better as the season went on. He was a workhorse behind the plate for us.
“Vin Cianni (junior) was our closer and spot starter. He had a great year and was the catalyst of our bullpen. Luke DeNicolo (junior) started at second base for us and only got better at the plate as the year went on. He had many big hits for us and was an RBI machine late in the year after splitting time early in the season.’’
Paramus finished with an overall record of 15-9, and they were 6-4 in the Big North Conference Freedom Division. They advanced to the NJSIAA North 1 Group 3 Sectional Tournament where they were defeated by Pascack Valley.
“Our senior class, parents and boosters deserve a lot of credit for our success this season,’’ Aday said. “Our seniors put in the time and efforts to get Paramus baseball back to where it needs to be.
“We look forward to the future. Despite injuries to three starting infielders, we were able to overcome that and have a good year.’’
