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 Teterboro, 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 Teterboro, 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:

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - A recent Hasbrouck Heights graduate planned and installed sensory hallways for students in both elementary schools during COVID-19 for his Eagle Scout project. And now he’s heading out for basic training in the United States Army.
Brian Gaffney is a member of the Hasbrouck Heights High School Class of 2022. He joined Cub Scout Pack 17 when he was in second grade, earning his Arrow of Light, the highest achievement in Cub Scouts. Then he bridged up to Troop 17. He held several leadership positions including Junior Assistant Scoutmaster, Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader and Quartermaster. He was also a member of the Hasbrouck Heights boys varsity tennis team.
His Eagle Scout project was to propose, plan, and install sensory hallways in both Euclid and Lincoln Elementary Schools.
Sensory hallways (paths or spaces) provide students with a positive outlet for addressing fidgeting, ADHD, sensory processing issues, stress and anxiety.
According to Action for Healthy Kids, “Sensory spaces are a fun and engaging way for children to get their wiggles out, refocus during a transition or self-soothe after facing a difficult challenge. These paths are made to be colorful and playful and turn a passive environment into an active one.”
“A sensory hallway is a series of decals on the floor and walls that creates an interactive space where students can use movement to refocus and expend excess energy,” explained Brian. “I chose this project because as a young boy I had a difficult time sitting still during long classroom lessons. The teachers would send me out into the hallway for “activity breaks.”
“I thought it would have been fun to have a sort of obstacle course to follow…make it more fun for the kids,” he continued. "I felt I needed to help kids like me and was happy when some of the teachers told me that the kids loved it and used it every day.”
“It was perfect…the PSD (Pre-School Disabled) children used it often, and I used it with two of my students weekly,” said Jennifer Werner, a kindergarten teacher at Euclid School. “The bright colors really grabbed the students' attention.”
“All the staff loved it,” she continued. “We’re very grateful to have something new.”
The project was done in summer 2021. Brian attended Board of Education meetings to get the project approved, coordinated with principals of elementary schools for timing and location of hallway, and finding the theme of the project. He chose an outdoor/nature theme. He ordered the template for decals online, and, after visiting and inquiring with private companies about printing the decals, he decided they would do it themselves.
Brian, with the assistance of his mother Andrea, fund-raised to purchase a Cricut machine, vinyl, transfer paper and tools from Michael’s with the donations. He researched how to print decals and get them applied properly, and coordinated with custodial staff to have the sensory hallway completed after stripping of floors but before waxing them. The application took about four hours for each hallway.
It took 156 volunteer hours to complete the project. He was assisted by fellow Eagle Scout candidates Jack Gaige, Aidan Desics, and his mother.
Brian officially received the rank of Eagle Scout in March at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Four months previously, he took the oath to enlist in the United States Army, aspiring to be a Ranger. He will report to Joint Base McGuire-Fort Dix on July 4, and then head to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, for basic training.
What lessons did Brian learn through his Eagle Scout project?
“Not everything goes as planned and brown vinyl is impossible to find!” he said.
Joseph Colangelo, principal at Lincoln Elementary School, said the project has benefited the young students.
“Brian’s sensory hallway design had a positive impact on our school, but most importantly, our students,” he said. “It really helped them to refocus their energy during the day.”
“We used it as a brain break often, and it was a great way to get the children moving during the day in between challenging activities and assessments,” added Werner.

Non-Emergency Construction Work Will be Suspended at Port Authority Crossings to Accommodate Increased Traffic Volume
PATH to Operate Additional Evening Service on Monday, July 4
LaGuardia Link Q70 from Jackson Heights and Woodside Now Free
Reminder: Face Coverings Required in All Port Authority Facilities, Including Airports, Midtown Bus Terminal and on AirTrain
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey strongly encourages travelers by air, rail and road to consider additional time this July Fourth holiday weekend, when more than 5.2 million passengers are expected to use its facilities.
The agency anticipates more than 1.9 million passengers will travel through John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty International, LaGuardia and New York Stewart International airports from Thursday, June 30, through Monday, July 4. This anticipated volume represents a decrease of 5 percent compared to the same holiday weekend in July 2019.
At the Port Authority’s bridges and tunnels, as many as 3.3 million vehicles are expected to cross the Port Authority’s bridges and tunnels over the same holiday weekend period based on recent travel trends, which is an estimate similar to 2019 actual traffic volumes.
To accommodate motorists traveling between New York and New Jersey, non-emergency repairs and construction projects at the agency’s crossings will be suspended from 5 a.m. Saturday, July 2, to 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 6. A separate travel advisory for any lane closures or service changes for the remainder of that week after the holiday will be issued next week.
As the agency has done so throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Port Authority continues to follow the guidance of both New York and New Jersey state health authorities with respect to mask mandates at its public transportation facilities. Per current New York public health guidance, the mask mandate remains in effect for its New York facilities, such as: the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal; the George Washington Bridge Bus Station; the World Trade Center Oculus Transportation Hub; LaGuardia Airport; John F. Kennedy International Airport, and New York Stewart International Airport. Per New Jersey state health guidance, masks are optional and welcome for all who choose to wear them at the agency’s New Jersey facilities, such as Newark Liberty International Airport and Teterboro Airport. The mask mandate remains in effect for the interstate PATH commuter train system, including at stations and platforms with the exception of open-air platforms.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is a bi-state agency that builds, operates, and maintains many of the most important transportation and trade infrastructure assets in the country. For over a century, the agency’s network of major airports; critical bridges and tunnel and bus terminals; a commuter rail line; and the busiest seaport on the east coast has been among the most vital in the country – transporting hundreds of millions of people and moving essential goods into and out of the region. The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16-acre World Trade Center campus, which today welcomes tens of thousands of office workers and millions of annual visitors. The agency’s historic $37 billion 10-year capital plan includes unprecedented transformation of the regions three major airports – LaGuardia, Newark Liberty and JFK – as well as an array of other new and upgraded assets including the $2 billion renovation of the 90-year-old George Washington Bridge. The Port Authority’s annual budget of $8 billion includes no tax revenue from either the states of New York or New Jersey or from the City of New York. The agency raises the necessary funds for the improvement, construction or acquisition of its facilities primarily on its own credit.

The flight pattern made available by the FAA was designed to protect residents from noise pollution by having planes follow Route 17.
HACKENSACK, NJ - City officials in Hackensack are demanding answers and solutions following the latest report from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Teterboro Airport showing planes not taking the flight path designed to protect the city from noise pollution.
The approach to Runway 19, the most frequently used runway, at the airport flies in the direct path of Hackensack University Medical Center and Prospect Avenue. According to a press release from the City of Hackensack, the low-flying planes making their approach to Runway 19 cause significant noise pollution and disturbances at dangerous levels for residents and school children of Hackensack. According to data released by Teterboro Airport at the FAA, the average aircraft sound level at a Prospect Avenue sound monitor in 2022 was 60.6 decibels, showing a 3.4 increase in levels from 2021 and a 1.6 increase in levels from 2019. There were also 947 registered aircraft noise complaints in Hackensack alone in the first quarter of this year.
Deputy Mayor Kathy Canestrino, Hackensack’s liaison to the Teterboro Airport Noise Abatement Advisory Committee (TANAAC) said in a statement, “City residents, including myself, have dealt with the noise pollution from airplanes flying into Teterboro for far too long. This is not only affecting our quality of life, it’s affecting our children’s ability to learn. Things have become so bad at the Hillers School that teachers say they must teach with the windows closed due to the constant noise. Years ago, the airport replaced windows and provided air-conditioning to Jackson Ave School due to the constant aircraft noise and should be doing the same to Hillers School. The taxpayers of Hackensack should not be responsible for this and our children’s education should not be affected by noise that can easily be avoided.”
According to the first quarter TANAAC meeting of 2022, a flight pattern made available by the FAA in July of last year to protect the city from noise pollution by having plane traffic directed over Route 17 was not being used by aircraft, sending the noise pollution levels to increase. The report also said that over 50% of the aircraft arriving at Teterboro Airport this quarter used Runway 19. The data showed that less than one percent of the aircraft departing and arriving at the airport used the newly developed flight pattern.
“Why this approach is still only being used less than 1% of the time is simply mind-boggling to me,” Canestrino added. "We need some answers from the FAA and Teterboro Airport on why the new approach is being ignored and what they will do to encourage pilots to use it in the future. We also want to thank the residents who’ve called in to register complaints. Complaints are the only way to monitor how the airport affects the local quality of life, so please keep calling.”
A press release from the City of Hackensack says the city is calling for the following questions to be answered by the FAA and Teterboro and solutions presented at the next TANAAC meeting:
According to Teterboro Airport, says the approach is available at the pilot’s request and is advertised during peak hours of 22:00L and 07:00L. The approach availability is subject to weather, workload traffic and traffic volume and density.
Residents can complain about airport noise online or by telephone at 201-288-8828 (or Toll Free at 800-225-1071) or by email: [email protected] The Teterboro Noise Complaint Department should acknowledge all complaints. If you do not receive an acknowledgment, please contact the Teterboro Noise Abatement Advisory Committee (TANAAC) at 201-641-9339.

MAHWAH, NJ — The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is seeking comments on recent flight pattern adjustments at the Teterboro Airport. What they'll be hearing out of Mahwah isn't positive.
Mahwah Mayor Jim Wysocki has sent a letter to the Port Authority, criticizing the decision and the impacts that it's had on the township, and the people who live there.
"As many of you are aware, the recent changes to the flight pattern into Teterboro Airport has created an incredible amount of low flying aircraft over residential neighborhoods in Mahwah. This is completely unacceptable," he said.
Within the letter, Wysocki said the increase in jet noise is "destroying our residents' quality of life," and that noise pollution is especially bad between 5 and 8 p.m. most days, and heightened further on Friday and Saturday.
According to the City of Hackensack, Federal Aviation Administration officials informed the city that flight patterns at the airport were changed as of July 1.
The reason for the change was the same as what Mahwah residents and officials are complaining about currently: jet noise.
Hackensack, as well as the Teterboro Airport Noise Abatement Advisory Committee, had fought for years to have the flight pattern changed, but it hasn't rid all county residents of the nuisance.
According to the city, the new flight pattern directs Teterboro Airport flight traffic over Route 17, rather than over Prospect Avenue and other residential areas in Hackensack.
Mahwah officials say that's a huge portion of the problem.
In the letter to the Port Authority, Wysocki stated that a Final Environmental Assessment conducted by the FAA was "flawed" because it "excludes communities, like Mahwah, along the Route 17 corridor that are less than 20 miles away from the airport."
This, according to Wysocki, allowed the flight pattern adjustment to happen, affecting the more than 25,000 residents of Mahwah.
Wysocki has called for additional memberships to the Teterboro Airport Noise Abatement Advisory Committee, which would allow Mahwah and other Bergen to have a say in airport decisions that could impact local residents.
However, the letter has also pitted current members of that committee, Hackensack specifically, against the township.
"Hackensack appears to have benefited from this partnership by successfully moving waypoints to the west away from its residents," the letter reads.
"However, Hackensack's win has now become Mahwah's burden."
