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 Peapack, 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 Peapack, 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:

PEAPACK-GLADSTONE – The developer of the Natirar estate will be the first in New Jersey to benefit from a government-backed bond to make environmentally friendly improvements to the historic buildings on the estate that once served as a residence for the king of Morocco.
The $26 million bond, the first under the state's new Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program in agreement with the Somerset County Improvement Authority, will finance improvements to the Natirar Resort, which will consist of the newly refurbished Ninety Acres restaurant, a 66-room luxury hotel, a 12,000-foot luxury spa, a fitness and wellness center and residential homes.
The resort is located on 90 acres that was leased from Somerset County in 2003 and is connected with the county’s 404-acre Natirar Park that runs along the North Branch of the Raritan River.
"As Ninety Acres celebrates 13 years of memorable dinners and celebrations, Natirar is moving forward with the renovation of the restaurant and historic mansion and the creation of a new hotel and resort," said Bob Wojtowicz, founder and owner of Natirar, in a statement. "The partnership with Somerset County and Peapack-Gladstone on the C-PACE funding will result in significantly less impact on the environment and far more energy savings in the new Natirar Resort."
C-PACE funding is provided for 100% of a project’s costs and is repaid as a special assessment over a term of up to 20 years. Local government assessment financing has been used efficiently for decades throughout the United States to fund improvements to private property that meet a public purpose.
C-PACE is a national initiative, but programs are locally based and tailored to meet local market needs.
The COVID pandemic hit Somerset County’s hospitality industry hard and the county, like neighboring Hunterdon, has been working to expand its historical, event and destination tourism. Officials believe that when the Natirar Spa and Resort is completed, it will be a significant addition to Somerset County’s wedding, health and wellness, and farm-to-table tourism markets.
“Somerset County is committed to both expanding our destination tourism industry and protecting our environment, and this C-PACE project with Natirar is a perfect example of how we can do both,” said Somerset County Commissioner Deputy Director Melonie Marano in a statement. “Natirar’s fantastic history, stunning open space, new hotel resort and the Ninety Acres restaurant will be an environmentally sensitive draw to people down the street and across the country. “
The legislation enabling the PACE program was signed into law in August 2021 by Gov. Phil Murphy. The legislation was introduced by retired state Sen. Kip Bateman, R- Somerset, and state Sen. Robert Smith, D-Middlesex.
The financing for the Natirar project is the result among a partnership among Natirar, the Somerset County Improvement Authority and Peapack-Gladstone.
The Improvement Authority is providing the financing through Somerset County's low-interest bond rating based on its AAA bond rating. Peapack-Gladstone adopted an ordinance allowing the program to go forward in the municipality. Natirar has committed to make special property tax assessment payments to Peapack-Gladstone to pay off the 30-year loan.
“We are very happy to have Natirar contributing to our community, and even happier to be able to partner with Somerset County to facilitate these environmentally sustainable additions and renovations,” said Peapack-Gladstone Mayor Gregory Skinner in a statement. “Encouraging green building is simply something we should all be doing, and we’re glad to be part of New Jersey’s first C-PACE project.”
The upgrades and new projects at Natirar will include green roofing, renewable energy projects, specialized lighting systems, e-glass windows and highly efficient HVAC systems in all buildings.
“Somerset County has a deep commitment to the environment, but also to providing support for our business community,” said Improvement Authority Chairman Joel Shain in a statement. “The innovative C-PACE program is a great tool to achieve both goals, and I’m proud to work with our partners on the first such project in the Garden State.”
The mansion was originally built in 1912 as the estate home of heiress Kate Macy Ladd and her husband, Walter Ladd and was later sold to the king of Morocco
Somerset County then bought the 491-acre estate in 2003 for $22 million.

Natirar Resort in Peapack & Gladstone has teamed up with Somerset County Improvement Authority to secure funding through New Jersey’s first ever Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program.
The $26 million bond will be used for Natirar to finance environmentally efficient improvements, to ensure both its existing historic buildings, new luxury hotel and residential community minimizes its eco-footprint.
“Somerset County is committed to both expanding our destination tourism industry and protecting our environment, and this C-PACE project with Natirar is a perfect example of how we can do both,” Somerset County Commissioner Deputy Director Melonie Marano said. “Natirar’s fantastic history, stunning open space, new hotel resort and the Ninety Acres restaurant will be an environmentally sensitive draw to people down the street and across the country.”
Somerset County’s hospitality industry was particularly hard hit by the COVID pandemic’s reduction in business travel, and the County has been working to expand its historical, event, and destination tourism to make up for the loss. When the Natirar Spa and Resort is completed, it will be a significant addition to Somerset County’s wedding, health and wellness, and farm-to-table tourism markets.
The C-PACE program was signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy in August 2021 and was sponsored by Somerset County’s own Senator Kip Bateman along with Senator Bob Smith and Assemblyman Raj Mukerji. C-PACE projects around the country have led to more businesses and landlords embracing renewable energy, climate resiliency technology, and other clean energy measures that improve our communities while saving money for developers and local residents.
“I am incredibly excited that after more than 8 years of planning, alongside our financing partner and trusted advisors at ConnectOne Bank, Natirar is moving forward with the full renovation and expansion of the historic 1912 mansion into a world-class resort and spa,” said Bob Wojtowicz, founder and owner of Natirar. “The partnership with Somerset County and the Borough of Peapack and Gladstone on the Commercial-PACE funding will result in a reduced environmental footprint and utility expense for the property moving forward. This application of C-PACE is the first of its kind in the state of New Jersey, enabling Natirar to serve as a beacon of sustainability for the state and local community.”
The Natirar Resort in Peapack & Gladstone will consist of the newly refurbished Ninety Acres restaurant, a sixty-six-room luxury hotel, a 12,000-foot luxury spa, a fitness and wellness center, residential homes, and various other supporting resort facilities. The resort sits on 90 acres leased from Somerset County in 2003 and is connected with the County’s 404-acre Natirar Park that runs along the North Branch of the Raritan River.
There are three partners making this first ever New Jersey C-PACE program possible: the SCIA is providing the financing authority using Somerset County’s low interest rates based on its AAA bond rating with no impact to the County budget; Peapack & Gladstone which passed the required ordinance allowing the program to go forward in their municipality; and the Natirar Resort which commits to make special property tax assessment payments to Peapack & Gladstone to pay off the 30-year loan.
Some of the upgrades and new projects will include green roofing, renewable energy projects, specialized lighting systems, e-glass windows, and highly efficient HVAC systems in all buildings.
