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 Raritan, 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 Raritan, 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:

FLEMINGTON, NJ - Hunterdon Central Regional High School students and the district’s superintendent are fighting the potential loss of an in-school mental health counseling program amid a proposal by the governor that would consolidate student support services.
The school is one of approximately 90 in the state which would lose an accessible, free counseling service known as School Based Youth Services under a new plan proposed by Gov. Phil Murphy that could take effect July 1, 2023.
Murphy’s new infrastructure for student and family support, announced in early October, includes the creation of “regionally based hubs” which would provide three tiers of support. Directors, support staff, prevention specialists and mental health counselors staffing the hubs “can be mobilized to support the needs of schools, as well as deliver services and support at other areas within the community, including libraries, community centers, faith-based organizations, social service agencies and even residential homes."

The new network would replace School Based Youth Services, although the state’s announcement says “agencies that currently provide School-Based Youth Services would be eligible to apply to operate a hub.”
Sophia Rencher, a senior at Hunterdon Central, said in an email she thinks the governor’s plan “has the correct moral idea of bringing mental health support state-wide, but is also taking away the individuality of what every school needs.”
“Prior to the year of the pandemic, our school fell into a new period of tragedy almost annually, like us students were just waiting to see which student would lose their battle next,” she said. “That level of grief for a youthful individual, especially an entire community of them, is nothing that should have to be borne.”
Unlike other services, the school-based program also provides confidentiality, she said.
“There is a confidentiality form you sign off on in which you can decide whether or not your parent/guardian(s) are notified that you are partaking in the program," she said. "This resource has probably helped so many students with unsupportive parents who do not care to indulge in the topic.”
School Based Youth Services currently provides in-person mental health, youth development, group, crisis intervention and extra-curricular services to Hunterdon Central students.
Hunterdon Central students who started a “Save School Based Youth Services Programs” petition, which nearly 10,000 people have signed, say the existing program provides daily support to students who might not receive the same immediate access through the statewide hubs, and it removes barriers to care such as “transportation needs and working around schedules.”
“School-based programs provide students on a daily basis with the mental health and crisis intervention services they are in such need of right now, and there will be a significant gap in the care of these students without these programs,” the petition states.
It says access to care is needed as the COVID-19 “pandemic left devastating consequences on the mental health of students and families in our schools.”
Superintendent Jeffrey Moore, at the Oct. 24 Hunterdon Central Regional Board of Education meeting, said the district will continue to fight for School Based Youth Services programs. Hunterdon’s program consists of four therapists serving hundreds of students, according to Moore.
“The state’s conduct in all of this has been most disappointing,” Moore said at the meeting. “Officials have lied to us, they refuse to answer questions, they have not done their homework on the programs that they seek to cut. They paint them all with a broad brush and say none of them are impactful, but we know different. We know we have waiting lists, we know that these programs have saved kids’ lives.”
Moore said the state previously tried to pull funding on programs like Hunterdon Central’s in 2020, and “the outcry was so loud, that the state actually turned around and put the funds back.” he said.
“I need you to know I've been meeting with my colleagues across the state and also with students and parents here at Central to talk about this and to let everybody know what's happening,” he added.
The change is proposed in part because the state’s current support network “is limited in scope and reach,” according to state Department of Children and Families Commissioner Christine Norbut Beyer.
“Of the nearly 1.4 million students in the New Jersey public school system, only 25,000- to 30,000 students (approximately 2% of the student population) are supported by the state’s School Linked Services Program annually,” Beyer wrote in a white paper on the proposal.
The New Jersey Department of Children and Families accepted public feedback on the new proposal for a two-week period in October, but Moore encourages people to continue to share their thoughts.
“The most important thing that people can do is share their experiences with our school-based therapists anywhere they feel comfortable sharing the experiences,” the Hunterdon Central superintendent urged. “Let people know how important these programs are for your health, your growth and your recovery from the pandemic.”
RARITAN TWP, NJ - Raritan Township Mayor Scott MacDade has promised the township committee will consider all possible legal options to get the “right decision” after the Hunterdon County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) passed a resolution Thursday approving West View Vines’ application for the construction of a 15’x30’ concrete pad for wine making.Overruling the township, which had earlier denied permission for the construction of the concrete pad, and dismissing concerns raised by residents, the CAD...
RARITAN TWP, NJ - Raritan Township Mayor Scott MacDade has promised the township committee will consider all possible legal options to get the “right decision” after the Hunterdon County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) passed a resolution Thursday approving West View Vines’ application for the construction of a 15’x30’ concrete pad for wine making.
Overruling the township, which had earlier denied permission for the construction of the concrete pad, and dismissing concerns raised by residents, the CADB formally adopted a resolution to approve the application at its meeting Nov. 10, saying “the proposed plan for the construction of a 15’ x 30’ concrete pad for wine making is a sound farming practice, and the applicant should be afforded Right to Farm protection and relief from Raritan Township’s denial of a zoning permit.”
In July, the CADB had certified the property on West View Drive as a commercial farm. Owner Alan Funk has said they have no intention of expanding the property from the 1 acre he has, as noted on property records, and the wine-making itself will be done in the 35x35 garage.

MacDade, who was present at the meeting along with Deputy Mayor Robyn Fatooh, expressed his disappointment at the resolution.
“We support our residents,” he said. "We want to see that their appeal is heard, and the right decision is made.”
“We think the wrong decision was made and we're going to see what we can do to help them,” he added. “We are going to pursue what we can here. We're working with [the residents] to get a satisfactory resolution.”
Many residents have rigorously objected to the proposed winery in their community on West View Drive, near Thatchers Hill Road, because of potential traffic, safety and noise concerns and overuse of water, especially as Raritan Township still mostly relies on private wells.
The CADB, however, was only interested in “approving a concrete pad and nothing else,” resident Stephen Rubin alleged following the CADB meeting Oct. 13. Rubin also accused the board of shutting down residents who tried to “question the application or make their position known with regard to traffic or water runoff or anything” at the meeting, and described the process as “humiliating.”
Announcing to CADB Resolution 2022-05, Katrina Campbell, counsel for Hunterdon County, said most of the arguments raised by the township and the residents had already been addressed and the resolution was just a memorialization of the decision made by the board.
“The applicant has a legitimate farm-based reason not to comply with Raritan Township’s zoning ordinance as the proposed use is a reasonable agricultural activity,” the resolution stated, “and the applicant will not implicate any health, safety and welfare issues.”
The application, Campbell said, has been approved on the condition that the proposed 15’ x 30’ concrete pad will be located in front of the existing detached garage, and the applicant will “work with a contractor to provide a retention area to collect run-off from the pad after rinsing the wine-making equipment.”
The applicants, Allen and Susan Funk, have also agreed to limit their wine-making operation to only the grapes that are grown on the farm, and to not bring any additional grapes for processing. They have also agreed not to host any public events and public tastings as part of their winery operations, offer on-site sales or put up public signages, the counsel added.
The determination of the CADB will be forwarded to the State Agricultural Development Committee within 30 days, and any person against the decision may appeal to the SADC.
Raritan Township looks set to pursue that course.
Appearing on behalf of Raritan Township at the meeting, attorney Phil Robertson “formally rejected” the adoption of the resolution “in the severest possible terms,” he said.
“As noted in the more detailed legal brief that was submitted by Mr. Michael Silbert (Raritan Township attorney), the township's position is that the action taken by this board is incorrect,” he said. “As noted in more details in that brief, this board did not have the jurisdiction to even entertain the action since the applicant did not meet the eligibility criteria to be protected under Right to Farm. That is first and foremost.”
“Secondly, it's the township’s position that the board doesn’t want to even consider the concerns of the township, or to consider the local conditions of the township, or the residents,” he added. “At the hearing (on Oct. 13), members of the public were either cut off or limited in their opportunity to actually discuss issues of concern.”
For those reasons, Robertson said, the resolution should be reconsidered and rescinded.
“And if the board is not going to do that, this is to make the board aware that the township is considering all possible legal options,” he said.

A Hunterdon County military hero, who lost his life in Vietnam 53 years ago, was honored posthumously at the county’s annual Veterans Recognition Medal ceremony on Veterans Day.
Also at the Nov. 11 ceremony, held in the Assembly Room at the County’s Route 12 Complex in front of a large crowd of family members and livestream viewers, Hunterdon officials awarded medals recognizing service to the nation by nearly 40 veterans.
An Army helicopter pilot who lost his life attempting to save a fellow crewman from the wreckage of his downed helicopter in 1969, Readington’s Dale Harry Haver’s posthumous medal was accepted by his twin brother, Don Haver, who also served as an Army officer in Vietnam and was the event’s guest speaker.
U.S. Rep. Tom Malinowski also presented the Haver family, 15 of whom traveled from around the country to attend the ceremonies, with the various medals for gallantry and heroism, including the Bronze Star and Air Medal, that had been awarded to Dale Haver but needed to be re-issued after being lost over the years.
Readington Township Mayor Juergen Huelsebusch announced at the ceremony that the Whitehouse Greenway has been re-designated the Lt. Dale Haver Whitehouse Greenway in honor of the fallen hero.
Board of Commissioners Deputy Director Zach Rich said, “When you learn of the heroic sacrifice made by Dale Haver, it reminds us we can never thank enough those who now serve and have served in our nation’s military. This event is, in my opinion, the single most meaningful county event each year and I am honored to participate.”
The Hunterdon County Veterans Recognition Medal, created more than 20 years ago by county resident and Vietnam veteran the late John Hatzikalifas, was awarded to veterans spanning more than 60 years of military service to the nation, from the Cold War to present day service around the world.
Each medal recipient was told ‘Your service to and sacrifice for our nation are greatly appreciated by those of us gathered here and all the people of Hunterdon County.’
County officials participating in honoring the Veterans and presenting medals included; Surrogate Susan Hoffman, Sheriff Fred Brown, Prosecutor Renee Robeson, Deputy Director Rich and Commissioners Shaun C. Van Doren, Susan Soloway and Jeff Kuhl.
Pastor Konrad Szierer, a Marine Corps veteran of service in Vietnam, provided the invocation and benediction for the ceremonies.
Dan ‘Dr. D.’ Torrone served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, which was held in person for the first time since 2019 and was also live streamed. A video of the event is available at https://youtu.be/PRwsOl3D4Nc.
In addition to the posthumous recognition of Lt. Haver, recognized were:
In addition to the Veterans Day Recognition Medal ceremony, the bell at Hunterdon County’s Historic Courthouse in Flemington tolled 21 times in honor of veterans, at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, as it has every year on Veterans Day since 2018′s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
