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 Vienna, 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 Vienna, 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:

Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner runs the Michelin-starred Wallsé, the Austrian fine-dining spot in New York City, and is now bringing his talents to New Jersey.
Gutenbrunner is opening a Viennese restaurant, Charley, in Harrison. You can expect Charley to be much more casual than Wallsé.
I was able to speak with David Barry, hospitality investor behind Charley, about what you can expect from Charley:
"We were looking to create a neighborhood bistro with inspired food and beverage offerings. My youngest son's name is Charley. His personality is curious, sociable, yet relaxed — very much the spirit of the bistro we were looking to create. I thought Charley was the perfect name to represent a human and approachable neighborhood spot."
"Charley is rooted in the culture of a Viennese kaffeehaus — a place where all walks of the community would gather from day to night to exchange ideas. While Viennese cuisine is historically important and delicious, it's rather unique in this area. Not only does Charley interpret great Viennese cuisine and approach it in new ways, but you can feel the strong community when you step into the bistro. Anyone should feel welcome to come in for dinner or a drink. Charley also expands onto a covered outdoor patio with fireplace, so it's a great place to grab a cocktail in the winter."
"Kurt recommends starting with the Berlin Currywurst — a shareable dish with spiced bratwurst and fries. Then ordering the shitake spätzle for your entrée — a delicious pasta dish with brussels sprouts, root vegetables, and alpine cheese. And the Linzertorte for dessert — a hazelnut tart with fresh raspberries and schlag (whipped cream)."
"To share with the table, we suggest the Flammkuchen, an Alsatian flatbread, that comes in bacon ("Farm") and mushroom ("Forest") varieties.
"The wiener schnitzel is a staple of Viennese cuisine, and Charley has a classic presentation served with a delicious potato-cucumber salad and lingonberry jam.
"For a drink, we highly suggest the Freudian Slip, our take on a mule, or a cold Bitburger beer with extra foam.
"And you can't miss dessert. Charley's apple strudel has been perfected by Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner and is not to be missed.
"We'll be adding brunch and lunch soon to make Charley a full coffee-to-cocktails environment."
You can visit Charley at 202 Angelo Cifelli Drive, Harrison, NJ 07029 and follow along on Instagram @Charley.Bistro.

The New Jersey Youth Symphony’s (NJYS) top ensemble, Youth Symphony, will visit Europe from July 3 to 13 to perform five concerts in Vienna and Budapest, as well as participate in the 11th Summa Cum Laude (SCL) International Youth Festival and Competition.
All 87 members of NJYS, conducted by Jeffrey Grogan, will share the stage with Hungary’s Anima Musicae Orchestra, the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra and Austria’s Wiener Jeunesse Orchester while on tour, and join nearly 2,000 other young musicians from around the world for the SCL Festival and Competition.
NJYS is one of three U.S. ensembles traveling to Austria for the SCL Festival and the only ensemble representing New Jersey. While on tour, NJYS will perform Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, Bernstein’s West Side Story Symphonic Dances and Stravinsky’s The Firebird (1919).
Taking place every July in Vienna’s two main classical concert venues, the Golden Hall of the Musikverein and the Wiener Konzerthaus, the SCL Festival offers an international experience in which young musicians speak the universal language of music, enjoy intercultural exchanges and build bridges that span continents.
The competition will be held in the prestigious Golden Hall of the Musikverein and be judged by a selection of internationally renowned professionals. On July 11, the last day of the Festival, participating groups selected by the jury will perform their best work before an international audience in the Konzerthaus.
In addition, NJYS will participate in two clinics with two conductors from the competition adjudication panel at the University of Music and Arts in Vienna.
“This is an amazing opportunity for NJYS’s students to shine once again on the international stage while representing the state of New Jersey," said NJYS Executive Director Karen Deschere. "They have worked extremely hard to prepare a demanding array of repertoire and look forward to collaborating with other talented youth from every corner of the globe.
"We were fortunate enough to tie for first place in the SCL competition in 2014, which was a huge thrill. Win or not, we know the students will have an outstanding, life-changing experience.”
The Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival was founded in 2007 and hosted by the Vienna International Association for Music and Culture Exchange. The Festival has gained the broad support of the Austrian public as well as national and international decision-makers in the fields of politics and culture.
Close ties have been established between the Festival and foreign embassies and international organizations, affording its young participants a truly international atmosphere.
Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts is in Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Paterson, and reaches students from 13 counties. All of WIPA’s faculty members and conductors hold degrees in their teaching specialty.

Her name is Vienna Carly Savino, and she tragically passed in 2017, a few months before her 3rd birthday.
Vienna fell asleep while watching TV at home in Holmdel, and never woke up again. Her death was categorized as Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC), which is essentially SIDS Part 2, but in kids 1 – 18 years old. As a result, Vienna's mommy, Dr. Denise Wunderler, DO, FAOASM, founded a nonprofit Team Vienna 4 SUDC Awareness and co-founded The SUDC Coalition.
Wunderler, her family, community members and Team Vienna work hard to remember Vienna in unique ways, while raising funds for research and educating the world about SUDC, a virtually unknown entity in the medical community.
According to Wunderler, "The community of Holmdel has been very supportive including Bell Works in Holmdel, and the businesses within. The iconic 60-foot tower will be pink on Friday, January 20, 2023, Vienna’s favorite color."
Vienna's actual birthday is January 19, and this will be the 3rd consecutive year that the famous structure will be lit pink for the inspiring toddler.
Everyone is invited to visit OasisVRX inside Bell Works, where special Vienna roses, books, and “Songs for Vienna” music CDs will be given away in honor of Vienna. In addition, Vienna’s big sister will be selling her homemade jewelry and other items, with proceeds going to Team Vienna.
“It’s hard to believe we have celebrated 6 birthdays without her. We miss Vienna so much. Her absence is felt every single day. Child loss is a devastating journey that continues for life. We will always be a family of 5. We are thankful for all the continuous support and love shown to us by the community and the world,” commented Wunderler.
Shockingly, most physicians have never heard of SUDC, as was the case with Vienna’s parents; Dr. Wunderler and Dr. Savino. They were familiar with SIDS, which applies to thoroughly investigated unexplained deaths in babies under one-year-old. SUDC addresses ages 1 through 18 years old. Even Vienna’s genetic studies did not reveal a cause of death. As of date, there are no causes and no preventative measures known for SUDC. Limited research indicates there may be some connection to febrile seizures.
Wunderler added, "Also, save the date for Saturday, May 20, 2023, where an INDOOR walk will be held at Bell Works, at 9:00 a.m. honoring the 6th Annual Vienna’s Day of International SUDC Awareness. Online registration coming soon!

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ— East Brunswick Public Library continues its annual Holocaust Remembrance Program series with "The Jews of Austria and Vienna Before the Holocaust." This multi-media program of lecture and music will take place at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center (721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick) on Sunday, April 24, at 2 pm.
The program is dedicated to the late Dr. Michael Kesler, who organized this program series since its inception in 2014. "The intent of the series is to bring to light the legacy of my Jewish ancestors, prior to their annihilation during the Shoah," he said during an interview in 2018.
After his retirement in 2006, Kesler wrote three books of his and his late wife's experiences during World War II. His last book, The Remnant, was published in April 2021.

"Our aim is to commemorate and celebrate the rich historical and cultural contributions of Jewish communities," he added. "It is our way of honoring and keeping alive their legacy, so that these once-thriving civilizations from whom many among us are descended, are never forgotten."
Historian Glenn Dynner will lecture on the history and culture of Austrian Jewry. In the early 19th century, Vienna became the cultural center of western civilization. His presentation focuses on the impact of the Jewish community on the Austrian capital city.
Dynner is the author of several books, including "Men of Silk: The Hasidic Conquest of Polish Jewish Society" and "Yankel's Tavern: Jews, Liquor & Life in the Kingdom of Poland." He was a Fulbright scholar and member of the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies. In 2019, he received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship to study how the Hasidic movement emerged in the early 20th century.
Following the presentation, a concert will feature classical Jewish Austrian compositions performed by an ensemble of local musicians. They will be under the direction of Dave Schlossberg, an accomplished pianist, who was awarded a Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement from the Global Music Awards in 2021.
May Kesler, the founder of contemporary dance company Keslerdances, will lead a choreographed performance of traditional Jewish and Austrian dances.
"The Jews of Austria and Vienna Before the Holocaust" is sponsored through a partnership of the East Brunswick Public Library and the East Brunswick Arts Commission.
The program is free and open to the public, with limited seating at the Community Arts Center. Additional information about this event can be found at www.ebpl.org/calendar.
