HRT - Hormone Replacement Therapy in Pompton Plains, NJ

Let's Talk!

What Causes Menopause

What Causes Menopause?

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:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

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

Hot Flashes

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:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

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

Mood Swings

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 Pompton Plains, 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.

Weight Gain

Weight Gain

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?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.
Low Libido

Low Libido

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 Pompton Plains, 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.

Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal Dryness

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.

What is Sermorelin

What is Sermorelin?

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.

Benefits of Sermorelin

Benefits of Sermorelin

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.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
What is Ipamorelin

What is Ipamorelin?

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.

Benefits of Ipamorelin

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

Wayne Mayor Talks ‘Mountain’ of Dirt at Depot on Pompton Plains Crossroad

WAYNE, NJ – If you’ve been on Pompton Plains Crossroad lately, then you’ve likely seen the rather large mound of dirt set off the road - what Wayne Mayor Chris Vergano recently called, “The largest mountain in New Jersey right now.” He was exaggerating, but a business known as Topsoil Depot has a mound of dirt that looks to be more than 50 feet high. Vergano and Township Attorney Matt Giaccobe spoke briefly about this during this past town council meeting.

“I've received some emails about Topsoil Depot on Pompton Plains Crossroad,” said Vergano. “If you noticed, it's the highest mountain in the state of New Jersey right now, and I say that, unfortunately.”

Vergano mentioned that Pompton Plain Crossroad is often “full of dirt and mud” because of the comings and goings of dirt-laden trucks from the site.

“They are responsible to keep the area clean,” said Vergano. “They do not. I drove by yesterday… it was dirty once again. So, we issued more summonses.”

Editor's Note: When TAPinto stopped by on April 8 to take pictures, Pompton Plains Crossroad was dirt and mud free.

The township has been in court “multiple times” with “the new owners of the property,” according to Vergano, and have issued them “hundreds of summonses.” In their current litigation, Township Attorney Matt Giaccobe is representing Wayne.

“We’re going to be deposing the owners,” said Giaccobe, “and as long as they're running a topsoil depot…that's not compliant with the long-time settlement agreement.”

In 2012, Topsoil Depot was ordered to remove about 30,000 cubic yards of fill and solid waste and was supposed to have a five-year cleanup plan, but hadn’t done so as of 2013, and only about half was removed by the five-year deadline in 2017, according to previous reporting.

“If you noticed, the mountain is higher than ever,” said Vergano during this past week’s meeting. “Allegedly, they're going to be removing the [inaudible] that's been there for the last 30 years. But I don't see any of that taking place. All I see is a commercial operation where dirt is brought in, sifted and then resold.”

The township is also opposing the owner’s attempts to become a Recycling Facility, which, the mayor said an application for this designation had been filed with the state of New Jersey.

Giacobbe also said that their recycling facility has been crushing concrete, which “is not in compliance.”

“We’re not going to permit that,” he said. “And we did get an injunction on that aspect of it.”

Vergano also mentioned another small victory for the township.

“They were also keeping landscapers’ equipment on the property,” he said. “And once we brought that to their attention, and issued a number of summonses, the landscaping equipment is now removed.”

The courts are a little slow, according to Vergano, but said they are getting better as more judge vacancies are filled.

In the meantime… “We're going to keep holding them accountable and continue issuing them fines,” said Giaccobe. “And we are continuing to monitor all their activities.”

Because this situation is being handled in court, the attorney would say no more.

Compromises Lead to Approval for Wayne Warehouse on Pompton Plains Crossroad

WAYNE, NJ – After multiple hearings in front of the Wayne Zoning Board of Adjustment, expert testimony and residents providing comment, the proposed warehouse on Pompton Plains Crossroad was finally approved 6-0. But not before several compromises were made by the property owners.

The approved warehouse will eventually be constructed on Pompton Plain Crossroad at the corner of Farmingdale Avenue. Not far from the Wayne Animal Shelter, and just about across the street from the post office.

March Monello, LLC proposed the changes to a plan that had been approved by the Planning Board in 2018. The recent hearings in front of the Zoning Board were to get approvals for several variances, including the size of the proposed building. The original plan was for a 40,000 sq ft warehouse, but the zoning board’s approval is now allowing for a nearly 70,000 sq ft warehouse.

Local residents were concerned about several issues, including truck traffic, lighting, noise and the idea that this would be a 24-hour operation.

March Monello, LLC is a partnership between March Associates Construction and Monello Landscape Industries – both Wayne companies. They agreed to change several aspects of the site plan to get the needed approval, according to Chris Kok, the Wayne Township Planner.

TAPinto reached out to Joe Monello, who said that their revised site plan had "carefully taken into consideration both the best interests of the residents and the township of Wayne," and that the new warehouse and the surrounding layout "will improve the conditions of the site as it currently exists today."

Kok explained the compromises made in their site plan.

“They agreed to a timeline limitation for when trucks could be maneuvering on site,” he said. “So, between 10:00pm and 5:00am there would be no moving of trucks and that was an idea for protecting neighbors from noise issues.”

Another compromise was that the site itself was redesigned so that there would be no entrance to the warehouse from Farmingdale Road so that all traffic would come and go from the warehouse through the entrance on Pompton Plains Crossroad. And, although the square footage will remain the same, the height of the building was reduced by four feet, mostly through a redesign of the roof. Instead of the roof sloping backward from the front, with rainwater draining to the back, the roof will have a center peak, which "cut the heith of the roof itself in half," according to Kok.

Stormwater retention basins were moved and – at an earlier hearing – March Monello agreed to plant more mature (taller) trees along the back of the property, so that it wouldn’t take as long for them to grow and provide a screen to neighboring residences.

“There’s also going to be a limitation on storing hazardous materials on site,” said Kok, “And they won’t be allowed to park vehicles inside, so it can’t be like a last-mile distribution facility.”

The Planner explained that a last-mile distribution facility is the last stop for packages before they are sent to the final destination, usually a home or a business. “These tend to have higher traffic and trip generation rates,” he said. “That was something the board did not want to see there. So, there is a condition that would prevent that warehouse from being used for that purpose.”

Now that the Zoning Board has approved the warehouse, the next step is to have the approval memorialized in an ordinance approved by the town council, then March Monello can submit their building permit – which will need another approval before construction begins.
