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 growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

TEANECK — For Shinae Hyun, one of her favorite things about running a library in the U.S. is the lively atmosphere.
"It’s not just about books," said Hyun. "We provide a lot more programming. Libraries here are filled with happy noises. It’s not a place to sit and study."
Hyun, a Dumont resident who took over as director of Teaneck Public Library on Feb. 1, was the former director of the Haworth Public Library, a position she'd held since 2016. She got her start at the Leonia Public Library in 2010, working six years as a young adult technology and outreach librarian and head of user services.
Before that, Hyun received a bachelor's degree in Library and Information Science from Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea, and a Master's of Library Science from Pratt Institute in Manhattan.
She came to America to take part in an internship in 2006 working at the Paramus Public Library. She liked it so much that she decided to immigrate to the U.S. to continue her studies in 2008.
"I never went to anyplace outside Korea back then," said Hyun. "I wanted to experience different cultures and language. It was a fun opportunity."
Libraries in Korea and the U.S. are very different, said Hyun. While libraries in Korea focus more on creating a silent studying space, libraries in the U.S. tend to operate as community centers. "It's viewed very differently," she said.
Hyun said she hopes to continue to make the library a vital part of the community that connects all the residents and has a little of something for everyone.
"Some people may be use book, spaces, computers, programming and some people may come just to have some human interaction," said Hyun. "I think that’s really important right now. For more than two years, people were isolated and felt alone. I think we can play a very important role in providing human connections."
Teaneck Public Library is aging, so Hyun also hopes to do what she can to upgrade the building by working with the Township Council and the library board.
"The first priority is the building because we are in desperate need of more space," said Hyun.
The library offers Hebrew and Spanish collections, but if the library has more space, Hyun would also like to expand its collection to meet the needs of more of the town's diverse community.

TEANECK, N.J., July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Validated Claim Support, LLC. (the "Company" "VCS" or "Validated") a Consumer Product Testing Company in Teaneck NJ announces that they are expanding their testing panel and paying local participants to try out new skincare products. Participants must be able and willing to travel to the study site at the Glenpointe Center in Teaneck, New Jersey.
The clinical studies can be focused on products ranging from makeup and skin care through hair care and anti-aging applications. Signing up is easy, and the studies themselves are rewarding and pay out via physical debit card.
As one of the premier consumer testing labs in North America, Validated Claim Support is conveniently located in Teaneck on the ground floor of the Atrium at Glenpointe, with handicap accessible facilities dedicated to making any market research or clinical study run efficiently.
While every study is a bit different in how they are run, there are few things you can expect every time with Validated:
Prior to any cosmetic product going to the market and making claims, it must go through validation testing. Generally, consumer products are tested for safety and efficacy. At Validated, efficacy testing is the name of the game – safety testing is already certified by the product manufacturers.
Additional benefits of participation at VCS may include the following:
Every study is different depending on what the product is and what the specific claims are. Some studies are designed to see how well a product works against untreated skin while others seek to test the product against its competition. The one universal constant for any study though, is the need for paid volunteers.
Without panelists, the studies can't be run at all. Large, diverse panels are the key to making sure products are tested rigorously enough to substantiate or refute any claims a product could make.
Click here to learn more about panelist registration and/or sign up to become a participant for studies in Teaneck, NJ today.

Holy Name medical center in Teaneck has received the green light yet again on a series of proposed expansion plans.
The township council approved the additions at a public meeting Tuesday night with a 5-0 vote, NorthJersey.com reports, despite a lawsuit filed by neighboring residents seeking to block the measure.
“The improvements will be done in phases over a period of years, and we look forward to our continued collaboration with the community as we bring this project to fruition,” Holy Name President and CEO Michael Maron said in a statement.
The proposed expansion includes four components, according to the hospital:
Subdistrict 1: The hospital will eliminate its current entrance on Grange Road and make Teaneck Road and a new entryway on Cedar Lane the main points of access to the facility. It will also add 150 feet of green space to block the view of parking lots.
Subdistrict 2: The hospital will build a new daycare facility and cul-de-sac on Chadwick Road along with added parking.
Subdistrict 3: There will be additions around the center of the medical center’s campus, including two nine-story hospital buildings attached to the current facility, two medical office buildings with enclosed parking and an interior courtyard.
Subdistrict 4: On the east side of campus, the hospital will build two multi-story medical office buildings, which will have enclosed parking and expanded surface parking.
Teaneck officials already approved a long-term renovation of Holy Name. But in April, a group of homeowners near the medical center asked a judge to block the expansion of the 361-bed acute care facility.
The lawsuit, filed in state Superior Court in Hackensack, sought to overturn ordinances granted by the township council and planning board that change the zoning of the current Holy Name site and several surrounding hospital-owned properties.
The lawsuit claimed the approvals were “arbitrarily, capriciously, improperly, and illegitimately adopted, in violation of law.” It also claimed conflicts of interest — namely financial motivations — of elected officials should render their votes invalid, citing several Teaneck council members are long-time volunteers with the township ambulance corps, according to the suit.
Residents testified for 90 minutes at the council meeting, according to the NorthJersey.com report, with 16 speaking in favor of the expansion and 19 opposing it.
Deputy Mayor Mark Schwartz and Councilwoman Karen Orgen recused themselves from the vote.

Another day, another drowning. Or two. Or three. Or fourteen?! At least that many people drowned in New Jersey last month. With another 6 weeks of summer, it’s sure to go up. But any number is too high.
A high school senior in a pond in New Milford. A 17-year-old and a 22-year-old in a lake at Mine Hill Beach. Two teenage brothers in an indoor pool in Bayonne. A 7-year-old girl in a backyard pool in Teaneck.
In ponds, in lakes, in reservoirs, in the ocean and in pools, the young, and sometimes the not-so-young —last month a 53-year-old man and 59-year-old woman drowned in separate incidents—are dying in New Jersey. It’s concerning, sad and — for the most part — very, very, preventable.
The main reason people drown is that they don’t know how to swim. Not well, anyway.
An American Red Cross report found that while 80% of Americans said they could swim, only 56% of them could perform the basic skills needed to swim safely, meaning more than half of them can’t swim well enough to save themselves in the water—which is likely the reason nearly 4,000 people drown in the U.S. every year. That’s about 10 fatal drownings a day.
It’s bad news all around: Drowning prevention group Stop Drowning Now notes when parents “have no to low swimming skills ...their children are also unlikely to have proficient swimming skills.”
We need to teach kids how to swim. It could start with teaching kids about water safety in school, which is what a bill, A618, introduced in the New Jersey Legislature the past three sessions is proposing, but even that doesn’t go far enough because it doesn’t require swim lessons in water. Legislators say it’d be too expensive. But other states have found ways to make sure kids learn this vital life-saving skill, and with all the private pool clubs in New Jersey, there needs to be a solution—maybe even like the short-lived partnership Plainfield Public Schools had with a local sports club.
Whatever it is, we can’t leave our children to sink or swim: Data from The Red Cross shows just four in 10 parents of children ages 4-17 say their child has basic swimming skills, yet more than nine in 10 say their child is likely to participate in water activities during the summer, anyway.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have an equally troubling statistic: 20% of the nearly 10 people who drown in the country every day are children aged 14 or younger.
The statistics are worrisome and there are plenty. But here’s a good one: Learning to swim can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%. That’s why swimming lessons for kids are crucial, especially given all the recent drownings and especially in a state surrounded by water on three sides.
Even so, mandating swimming as part of New Jersey’s school curriculum could cost “tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars,” says Assemblywoman Nancy F. Muñoz (R-Summit) who’s sponsoring the bipartisan bill that would require school districts to provide instruction on water safety as part of the state’s health and physical education curriculum.
“Most public schools here don’t have a pool so that’s a limitation,” she said. Ideally, she says, the bill—which calls for students in grades K through 12 to learn the proper use of flotation devices, how to become aware of water conditions, the dangers of rip currents and how to respond if caught in one, and the importance of swimming in areas monitored by a lifeguard—would include swimming lessons for students.
But “realistically,” she says, “many districts may not have access to a pool” and it’d be “a much harder lift” for schools financially.
Bill sponsor Assemblyman Sean T. Kean (R-Monmouth) agrees. He says it “comes down to dollars and cents” and says, because the bill, as written, “doesn’t add an alphabet soup of requirements” it’d be easy to implement the basic safety instruction at all schools throughout the state.
“The implementation would be up to the discretion of the school districts,” he said, adding he’s sure some would likely “run with it and expand the mandate to include swimming instruction.”
Both Kean and Muñoz told me they see the proposed mandate as a “positive first step” towards ensuring New Jersey children are safer in the water. I hope they’re right and pray the bill passes but as a mother of two I still can’t help but think maybe more can be done.
I spoke with Amanda Duvall, coordinator for teaching and learning at the Juneau Borough School District in Alaska, who said all fourth-graders in the district’s eight elementary schools receive 10 days of swimming instruction. They’re bussed to one of the two pools in town for lessons, she said.
At one school, students in grades K-5 alternate between a week of gym class and a week of swimming lessons throughout the year. “And you can find it as a high school graduation requirement in some of our schools,” she said.
In San Diego, California, a portable pool program launched in the late ‘60s to prevent children from drowning and provide free and low cost swimming lessons to locals who can’t afford them or don’t live near one of the city’s 13 pools is still ongoing.
According to Fox News, the portable pools can be built in 20 short minutes and the residents who learn to swim in them either pay just $10 or do so for free.
In years past, some of our residents also learned to swim for free. In 2018, thanks to a partnership with the YMCA and money donated by foundations, 1st through 3rd graders in Plainfield Public Schools got free lessons. For eight weeks, they were bussed to the Y during the school day to learn how to swim.
But, Plainfield’s community engagement liaison Gloria Montealegre says, the program no longer exists and the local YMCA closed.
Both ideas, however, give me hope—they speak to what’s needed in New Jersey, initiatives that make learning to swim affordable and accessible for all kids.
