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 Teaneck, 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 Teaneck, 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:

Bischoff's, the beloved near 90-year-old ice cream shop in Teaneck that closed its doors at the end of 2022, is coming back.
Owner Steve Mather and three of his friends are set to launch a pop-up at the Cedar Lane location starting May 29, and afterward, if they're able to raise enough money, they will open a completely remodeled Bischoff's with a new chef and new menu.
“I'm nervous, I’m excited, I’m a little overwhelmed," said Mather, the fourth-generation owner of the shop, which has been in Teaneck for 89 years. The original store was founded in Manhattan by Mather's great-grandfather, Albert Bischoff, in the 1890s.
"It's a huge undertaking," Mather said. "After setting my mind on not doing it anymore, I am dipping my toe back into the pool and hoping it’s not freezing cold."
The idea to reopen was hatched by three of Mather's friends: T.J. Quinn, Edward Pierce and Rony Alvarado. Alvarado, chef and owner of Rony's Rockin' Grill, a funky, award-winning 9-year-old burger joint in Bergenfield, is going to be the restaurant's executive chef.
"Even before the store closed, we wondered, 'How could we do something to revive it?' " Quinn said. "This is the plan we came up with."
The plan is to run a pop-up Wednesday through Sunday with a limited menu until Labor Day — and then a full-on restaurant, one without candy counters ("That will be gone," Quinn said) but with a fryer, its first.
"We never had a fryer in the store," Mather said. "We never had french fries or onion rings. The chocolate would have absorbed the grease. We’re going to do french fries, onion rings, hot dogs, hot turkey sandwiches and God knows what else."
For the pop-up, Alvarado is planning to offer at least two varieties of sliders, a cheeseburger and a special slider with a new sauce and frizzled onions.
"We are going to generate a lot of buzz," Alvarado said. "We want Bischoff's to come back up."
Of course, ice cream will be sold at the pop-up, but Mather said fewer flavors will be offered. Yet he plans to provide specials including ice cream sandwiches, an item that the shop once offered but stopped because they "took too much time and energy to make."
He also plans to try out different toppings for sundaes — caramel, perhaps. "We never had caramel," he said. "We always did butterscotch."
Mather said he spent his time off going to ice cream shops because "I wanted ice cream myself" and to learn about his competition.
He learned, he said, that no place "compared to Bischoff's" and that Bischoff's was "grossly undercharging for our ice cream." He said Bischoff's charged $4 for an 8-ounce dish of ice cream but many places charge $5.75.
"We weren't keeping up with the rising costs of everything," he said.
He said that may have contributed to the shop's undoing.
When Mather closed the store, he said the finances just weren't working. The shop implemented changes in hopes of improving business. It even began accepting credit cards in 2019. And then COVID-19 hit.
"COVID just stuck a knife in our back," he said then.
Mather said he was somewhat taken aback by the outpouring of love the shop got when he announced that it would close last year.
"I always knew people loved it, but maybe I didn’t understand just how much. I mean I didn't think that people would wait three hours in line for two pints of ice cream — and do that in the rain.
"One woman — her name is Charlene — would come every single day of our last three weeks to get sundaes," he continued. "On the last day, she showed me her photo books of her Bischoff's experiences over the years, and the last page was a photo of all the sundaes she had squirreled away for after we close."
Mather said he hopes Bischoff's fans return to the store when it reopens.
"I hope Charlene comes back," he said. "I hope she is not going through withdrawals without the ice cream."

After a two-year, $7 million restoration project that closed much of the park, the Teaneck Creek Conservancy, a 46-acre nature preserve in the middle of suburbia, is open again to the public.
The project was designed to slow the flow of stormwater rushing into the creek from the road, remove the invasive species that had become pervasive throughout the park and reestablish wetlands in the Teaneck Creek Watershed.
Officials say they are already seeing some wildlife return to the county park with the restoration of the area’s natural ecology.
“We’ve had red-shouldered hawks show up, rusty blackbirds, egrets, kestrels and bluebirds. It’s constant song in here,” said Kathleen Farley, the park’s executive director. “The wildlife is responding already, and the park is just getting started.”
Don Torino, president of Bergen County Audubon, said many of the bird species that are threatened need access to wetlands to survive.
“It’s so valuable to the wildlife. We’re already seeing birds come back that we never saw before,” he said. “To have this kind of habitat in our area is really special.”
Biohabitats, an ecological restoration firm that worked on the project, installed green infrastructure to slow stormwater coming off Teaneck Road and let it gradually seep into the ground, allowing native plants to thrive. Before, water would wash into the park with such force that it eroded the land and carved a deep V-shaped canyon.
A clay liner was installed when the area was slated to become a dump 70 years ago. That plan was never fully realized, but the liner disrupted the park’s ecology.
To restore the wetlands, 51,000 cubic yards of clay were removed. Much of the material was placed in a berm constructed along DeGraw Avenue. The berm has become a vantage point for birders, and as the plants along it grow taller it will block some of the traffic noise from the road, said Adam Strobel, the conservancy board president and the county’s land management director.
Roughly 18,400 cubic yards of debris were also redeposited into the berm. Some of the clay material was taken to a landfill undergoing closure in another section of Overpeck Park, known as Area Four.
Phragmites — tall grasses that could reach up to 20 feet and grew on either side of much of the trails — were taken out, along with other invasive species. A few dozen trees whose roots were embedded in the clay liner also had to be removed, Strobel said.
Native grasses, shrubs and trees were planted in their place. It will take several years before the plants reach their maturity. As a result, the trails, which were bordered with tall phragmites and trees, are now much more open.
Story continues after gallery
“You used to walk on these trails and felt almost surrounded by these walls,” Strobel said. “You really couldn’t get an appreciation of what was beyond to the left and right of you. Now that’s not the experience.”
The changes were startling for some of the park’s longtime visitors.
“People were surprised. They came in expecting a forested park, but that wasn’t the intent. This is a wetland,” Farley said. "A park this small, in a community, people feel ownership of it. That made it harder in some ways to see the changes.”
In all, about 20 acres of the conservancy were restored. The rest will be managed to make sure the invasive species that remain don’t overtake the native plants.
Before the conservancy was established, the site served as a staging area when Route 80 and the New Jersey Turnpike were built and was an unofficial dumping ground for trash and debris for decades.
The idea to restore the creek as a nature preserve was born in 2001, when Perry Rosenstein, a co-founder of the nearby Puffin Foundation, worked with a group of environmentalists, artists and educators to rescue the neglected piece of land.
Volunteers worked to clear the park of much of the trash, including old refrigerators, car parts and broken concrete. An outdoor classroom, a walkable peace labyrinth and ecological art exhibits were created along 1.3 miles of groomed trails of the park, which is part of Overpeck County Park.
George Reskakis, a volunteer at the park since its beginnings, is hopeful the park will serve as a sanctuary for the animals that have been pushed out of their habitats by encroaching development.
“Unfortunately, humans are the invasive species, as we’ve proved over and over,” he said. “It’s time for us to be better stewards of the land and the environment.”
The conservancy is holding a series of events this month to celebrate the reopening, including nature walks, a woodcarving demonstration, an outdoor storytime with the Teaneck Public Library, a gardening class and plein air painting.

Bischoff's, the cherished near 90-year-old ice cream shop in Teaneck that closed its doors at the end of 2022, officially reopened today as a pop-up with a new look, new menu and lots of aspirations.
What visitors will see and experience now is just a taste, albeit an exciting and dramatic taste, of what owner Steve Mather and three of his friends envision for the Cedar Lane restaurant when it eventually evolves into a full-on, permanent eatery next spring.
Mather and his friends — T.J. Quinn, Rony Alvorado and Edward Pierce, all Teaneck residents — are hoping to raise enough money (they've set up a GoFundMe account) to make their enduring dream come true.
"Right now, it's a palate cleanser," said Mather. "We want to erase what your thoughts of Bischoff's had been and help you imagine what it could be in the future."
From the appearance of the pop-up, which will run Wednesday through Sunday until Labor Day, the future looks very bright.
"When you walked into Bischoff's, it was plain colors," Mather said. "Now, it's like you fell into a paint can."
The walls have been painted with lots of different colors — teal, beige, purple, red. The paint was allowed to drip down the walls, like ice cream melting on a cone. The floors, too, have been painted with a slew of colors. Even the sidewalk outside the front door sports a bright teal rubber mat in a curvy shape, again mimicking ice cream trickling.
"It's a splashy, colorful design inspired by the bright colors of ice cream," said Pierce, a Tony-nominated Broadway set designer who is responsible for the look.
The candy counter is gone. Many of the booths are gone too.
Today there's a "photo wall" wearing a huge heart, with the words "I Love Bischoff's" on it, where customers can snap photos (consider it your "red carpet" moment). Another wall wears a tapestry of sheets of colored paper on which Bischoff's fans wrote their reminiscences when the store was closing. The restaurant has hundreds of them, Pierce said.
"We wanted to capture stories on pieces of paper, document them," Pierce said. In its final weeks of operation, the shop had a stack of papers and colored markers for anyone who wanted to share their stories.
Pierce was among the hundreds of fans devastated when Bischoff announced it was closing.
"It was like a dagger to my chest," he said.
Wanting to save it, he and Quinn proposed to Mather a new, bold concept for Bischoff's — before the store even closed.
"I've been wanting to build a community space for many years," said Pierce, who has lived in Teaneck for 23 years. But he said he never found quite the right fit. However when Bischoff closed, "a bell went off in my head. Bischoff's had the spirit of what I want to see in Teaneck."
Understandably Mather was too overwhelmed at the time to even consider their idea.
Two months later, however, he sat down with Pierce, Quinn and Avorado, chef and owner of Rony's Rockin' Grill, a funky, award-winning 9-year-old burger joint in Bergenfield, and began to hatch out a plan for a new Bischoff's. Avorado agreed to be Bischoff's new chef.
The plan for the permanent Bischoff's admittedly is ambitious. Not only will the restaurant serve its famous home-made ice creams and, thanks to a fryer (the store's first), French fries and onion rings, hot dogs and hot turkey sandwiches and "God knows what else," Mather said, it will also have a stage. The pop-up is serving ice cream and sliders.
"It will be a place where the community can come and express itself," Pierce said. School kids, local musicians, singers, comedians and poets will be able to perform. Events will also be held at the courtyard next door.
And come spring, the 3,000-square-foot space will be transformed again. This time, permanently and this time to look more like the Art Deco ice cream shop it began life as in the 1930s. The original store was founded in Manhattan by Mather's great-grandfather, Albert Bischoff, in the 1890s. It moved to Teaneck 89 years ago.
"When we come back in the spring, it will be all new, but it will look old fashioned," Mather said. "It will be quietly modern, We will have computer ports so that kids from FDU or the high school can do their homework."
There will also be video screens and plenty of spaces for snapping photos to feed your social media accounts.
It will also be taller.
"We found four feet of height hidden behind a dropped ceiling," Pierce said. "There are even old sky lights. It's like an archeological dig."
He added, "Bischoff's is not just a restaurant. It's a place where the community knows to go."
