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 Ramsey, 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 Ramsey, 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:

Jerry Welkis, Exclusive Broker for Interstate Shopping Center, Ramsey, New Jersey is pleased to announce that he represented the Landlord, Ramsey Interstate Center, LLC on relocating DSW in the center to accommodate a 25,000 s.f. Burlington Coat, which will be the recent anchor, which is already anchored by DSW, Michael’s, Shoprite, Old Navy, Ulta Cosmetics & Petco. Burlington was represented by Cliff Simon of CNS Real Estate.
Burlington, formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory, is an American national off-price department store retailer, and a division of Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation with more than 1,000 stores in 40 states and Puerto Rico, with its corporate headquarters located in Burlington Township, New Jersey. In 2007, it was acquired by Bain Capital in a transaction and in 2008, Tom Kingsbury became president and CEO. The company went public again in 2013. Burlington is the third largest off-price retailer after TJX Companies and Ross Stores.
Following the high investor turnover from Europe for Samana’s Greek island-themed projects, the developer today launched an AED 510 million (USD 138.8 mln) Skyros residential project in Arjan, which derives the design concept and name after the famous Skyros Island in Greece. The island is known for white beaches, sea caves and seaside villages. Samana Skyros has created a similar design in the mini-island. In addition, Samana Skyros features retail spaces.
The 3B+G+17 Skyros mid-luxury project is the continuation of the multiple project launches that Samana Developers has planned for this year. Skyros is located in Arjan with close proximity to the Al Khail expressway and Mohammed Bin Zayed highway. Dubai’s tourist landmarks around Skyros are the Miracle Garden, Dubai Butterfly Garden, Global Village, Dubai Autodrome, Mall of the Emirates and City Centre. The project is close to Mediclinic Hospital, GEMS Wellington School and Dubai Hills Mall.
“We are constantly receiving overwhelming interest from European, Russian and CIS investors for our new projects, especially for those projects that embody Greek island themes and designs. Skyros has been designed on the popular investor trend to meet the demand. Triggered by Covid-19, our resort-style projects performed well. The trend reflects that today’s buyer prefers to live in a healthy yet affordable environment. Samana Developers is doing well with the new themes such as the resort, the island, private pools and converting a residential apartment into a holiday-home. We our upcoming new projects, we will be introducing innovative concepts.”, revealed Imran Farooq, Chief Executive Officer of Samana Developers.
Multiple awards winning Samana Developers is now among few developers whom incorporated the additional income-generating facility for its homebuyers. Samana Developers allows and facilitates its buyers to convert the apartments into holiday homes and sub-lease to tourists and visitors. This facility benefits both, the homeowner making an additional income; and the tenant saving on exorbitant hotel charges.
The Skyros, spanning over 567,433 sq-ft of total build-up area, houses 441 apartments that include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units with private pools. 97.5% of the units have private pools. The water element is a key feature which creates freshness and wellness.
Samana Skyros features two luxurious leisure pool decks, private pools, a health club, indoor and outdoor gyms, a sauna, a steam room, a kids’ play areas, a rooftop basketball court, a rooftop lounge, a rooftop cinema, valet parking and retail spaces.
UAE Golden Visa for Samana Investors
Samana Developers provides free-of-charge UAE Golden Visa support to those investors who buy properties worth AED2 million and above. The immediate family members of the real estate golden visa holder avail the 10-year residency under the buyer.
Payment Plan – 5 Years
Samana Skyros apartment prices start from AED649,000 (USD 176, 695). It is a total of five years payment plan. This flexible payment plan makes it affordable for new or first-time buyers. The project is scheduled for handover in June 2026. The developer guarantees competitive 24% returns.
Samana Developers has successfully launched multiple projects as we speak. Very few developers achieve consistent acceptance, market penetration and reputation in Dubai’s well-regulated and bustling real estate market. It cemented Samana’s position in the market and is a reflection of its future vision.

WESTWOOD — When Cedar Grove and Ramsey stepped onto the field for the last of the five games in the Jim Grasso Kickoff Classic, it was a matchup of experience vs. inexperience. More times than not, that experience will pay huge dividends in the beginning of a season.
It certainly did for the Panthers of Cedar Grove, who got through a slow start before coming on and playing dominantly in the second half of a 34-7 football win over the Rams in the season opener for both teams Saturday.
It took about a quarter for Cedar Grove to find itself, as Ramsey’s youngsters played a spirited game with what at times looked like a Grand Central Station approach offensively, rotating three, four or five players in and out.
Jim Grasso Kickoff Classic:Westwood football enjoys dream start vs. South Plainfield
That helped keep the game scoreless into the second quarter and the Rams actually got the first points of the game following an Andrew McDade interception of a tipped pass at the line of scrimmage.
Two first downs set up a nice stretch play, with Christian Fojon cutting off the right tackle and finding the seam on the way to a 27-yard touchdown run. That would be the last highlight moment for the Rams, however.
The Panthers, a pass-first offense, finally got their timing down, and they answered back with a quick march that culminated on a nice hitch-and-go route by Nick Russo, with quarterback Stephen Paradiso hitting him stride in the back of the end zone down the left sideline,
Cedar Grove grabbed the lead for good on the final play of the first half, with Sebastian Kovacs drilling a 40-yard field goal with room to spare, making it 10-7. That pumped up CG, and they took the second-half kickoff and went right down the field, with a Paradiso to Nick Iannacone 25-yard pass putting them on the 1-yard line. Paradiso snuck it in from there.
After a failed fourth down by Ramsey, Cedar Grove made it 24-7 on a 15-yard Paradiso to Iannacone TD strike. Kovacs added his second field goal from 28 yards out, giving the Panthers a 27-7 lead going into the fourth quarter, and a Paradiso 13-yard run closed out the scoring.
For Cedar Grove, it was a validation that they are ready to once again make noise in the North Group 1 championship picture. The Panthers went almost exclusively with the pass in the first half, running only three times, but they had a better mix in the second half and were able to use the run time off the clock.
For Ramsey, it sets the needle for what has to happen as they move on to the next game, a mere five days away on Thursday against Pascack Valley. With a sophomore quarterback making his debut and many pieces on both sides of the ball also in their inaugural varsity game, it’s all about getting better. It was not a lack of effort by the Rams, simply a case of the opponent being much further along thanks to their veteran status.
This one is easy. It was the Kovacs field goal to close the half. The Panthers were not at their best in the opening half ("We got a little caught up in opening day jitters and simply needed to get rolling,” head coach Rob Gogerty said), but they were able to walk off with a lead and a huge momentum swing, Coming right out and scoring to open the second half emphasized the positive shift.
Facing a fourth-and-five at their own 37 with just under 5:30 to go in the third quarter and trailing 17-7, Ramsey coach Adam Baeira gambled and went for it. Perhaps a better way of stating it is, he showed his team that he had faith in them. They had quarterback Justus Favata roll right and the running back release from a block into the flat. The pass hit him in the hands beyond the first-down marker with room to run, but it was dropped.
“We practice that play over and over,” Baeira said. “It set up like we expected but we just didn’t execute it. Hey, we’re going to have to own it, know that when that situation comes up again that we’ll do a better job of making the play.”
Paradiso was 18 of 29 passing for 285 yards and a pair of touchdowns and one interception. Iannacone was the favorite target, snaring 8 balls for 139 yards. Jackson Morrice was the deep threat, catching 4 for 97 yards and Russo, the tight end, had 3 grabs for 51 yards as well as a 12-yard run on a receiver reverse. The Panthers had a 316-203 advantage in total yards over the Rams.
Favara was 12 of 21 passing for 81 yards and an interception in his first game as a starter, with tight end Noah Magnus on the receiving end of four balls for 38 yards. Van Schoening had 3 catches for 14 yards and 41 rushing yards on 13 carries. Fojon had 50 yards on 5 runs and Favata 34 on six carries.

It’s no secret that most shopping is done online nowadays. But sometimes the best experience – especially when it comes to shopping for clothes – is only possible in-person. Fado in Ramsey is there for folks who want to visit a boutique brick-and-mortar.
Fado means destiny/fate in Portuguese. It’s a fitting title, considering how the store came to be. “My co-owner Bridget Zuckerberg has a photo of her family standing outside the vacant storefront,” says Jennifer Orsini. Bridget and her family were attending Ramsey’s Memorial Day Weekend parade in 2019, not realizing what was right behind them. “Little did she know that four years later she and I (her best friend) would be opening a boutique here!”
More from Best of NJ
Fado customers range in age from 16 to adults in their sixties. The store offers a curated selection of clothing, gifts, and accessories. “We have a clean, fresh aesthetic based on European boutiques,” Bridget says. “We are LA casual meets New York cool.”
Available brands include Citizens of Humanity, AGOLDE, Levi’s, Perfectwhitetee, 525 America, Heartloom, Greylin, and Good American. Perfectwhitetee essentials are extremely popular, especially the brand’s tees and ribbed Blondie tanks. While the selection at Fado rotates, they always carry stock of these items. “We have loved the brand Perfectwhitetee for years,” Jennifer explains. “Our obsession with the brand is half the reason we opened the store!”
Of course, the physical location Fado provides also means in-store-only benefits such as feedback from a passionate salesperson; as well as the ability to wear something immediately after purchase.
Bridget first moved to Ramsey 11 years ago with her husband. They fell in love with the town and love raising their family in Ramsey. “Ramsey has such a vibrant main street,” she says.
Meanwhile, Jennifer and Bridget have been best friends since kindergarten, growing up in Lagrange, New York, just outside Poughkeepsie. Opening a boutique shop is a dream come true for both of them. Jennifer is also an accountant, and Bridget is a former teacher.
Though this is their first experience owning a boutique, they are learning from their mentor, Sasha Micoretti. Sasha owns the original Fado in Katonah, New York, and its second location in Long Island City, Queens. The Ramsey store is the third location of Fado, and the first franchise shop. “We appreciate each and every one of our customers choosing to shop small and local with us,” Bridget says. “We love our local business neighbors as well. They have all graciously welcomed us to this tight knit community.”

MONTVALE − Joey Giordano and Pascack Hills had to knock off the defending champion to earn the crown, and they proved title-worthy.
Giordano threw a four-hitter and the Broncos produced enough offense to win the North 1, Group 2 baseball title with Friday's 3-1 victory over Ramsey.
“This did need to go through Ramsey,” Pascack Hills coach Nick Evans said, “because this was their section, and they’re a [heck] of a team over there.”
Giordano's pitching line: Seven innings, four hits (three of them singles), two walks, and eight strikeouts. The junior left-hander threw 99 pitches.
Pascack Hills (20-7) scored twice in the second inning for a 2-0 lead. Junior Ronin Stern drove in two runs with a double off the fence in right.
The Broncos extended their lead to 3-1 in the third. Senior Sean Busanic's two-out single to center drove in senior Dom Musco, who led off with a walk, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch.
Junior William Kirk led Ramsey (18-8-1) to last year's Group 2 state title and was again exceptional. The first baseman went 3 for 3 and drove in the Rams' run in the third with a two-out single to center. The team's only other hit was a bunt single.
“[Giordano] pitched a terrific game,” Ramsey coach Paul Urbanovich said. “Hats off to Giordano. He had us off balance pretty much the entire game and we couldn’t get anything going offensively, and that was obviously the difference in the game.”
Pascack Hills owns a seven-game winning streak and will host the North 2, Group 2 titlist, Hanover Park, in an NJSIAA Group 2 semifinal at 4 p.m. Monday. The Broncos won back-to-back state titles in 2018 and 2019, with the 2020 spring season cancelled by the pandemic.
Stern is Pascack Hills’ No. 9 hitter and his two-run double off the fence in right in the second was his biggest hit of the season and provided the critical 2-0 lead.
Stern drove in junior Matt Tortora, who led off with a double to left-center, and senior Will Aschenbrand, who was hit by a pitch with one out. Stern’s brother, Ari, the No. 8 hitter, walked to load the bases.
“We struck first, it’s always good to strike first and help your pitcher out and give him a little cushion,” Ronin Stern said.
Giordano’s 21 outs came via eight strikeouts, seven fly balls and five grounders, with one Ramsey runner thrown out on the bases. He struck out the side looking in the second, and he had at least one strikeout in each of the final four innings, ending it on a strikeout.
“I just tried to get ahead,” Giordano said. “There were a lot of fastball counts that I mixed in off-speed, and a lot of teams aren’t used to seeing that.”
“He was special,” Evans said. “He filled it up. He had command of three pitches. He wasn’t scared of anybody in their lineup, Kirk included. He’s another kid who has embraced the challenge.”
Kirk’s three hits came on a first-inning infield chopper, the third-inning RBI single to center, and a sixth-inning double to right. The left-hander drove in sophomore Nate McLaughlin, who reached on a well-placed bunt between the mound and first base.
“Give our kids a lot of credit,” Evans said. “Week after week, especially since the state tournament has started, we’ve embraced and accepted every challenge."
“There were a lot of eyes on us this year,” Urbanovich said, “and I thought we competed all the way to the end.”
