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 Warren, 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 Warren, 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:

It could be a messy evening commute Friday in northwestern New Jersey with the potential for snow squalls or snow showers this afternoon, forecasters say.
Snow squalls are intense bursts of moderate to heavy snow that tend to occur quickly — often dropping a fast coating of snow on the ground, making roads and highways slick. They also tend to generate strong winds, which blow the snow sideways. This creates whiteout conditions, sharply reducing visibility for drivers.
Many snow squalls are short-lived, sometimes dissipating after only 10 or 15 minutes, but some can last as long as an hour or even longer.
The National Weather Service says the best chance for rain and snow showers will be from 4 to 8 p.m, with the risk of squalls highest in Sussex and Warren counties.
Any snow that accumulates is expected to be less than an inch.
For majority of the state, there’s only a slight chance of rain and snow showers later this afternoon into the early evening.
Friday will be another in a stretch of chilly days that should last through Monday. High temps will range from the upper 30s in northwestern areas to the mid 40s in most other places. Normal highs this time of year are in the low 50s.
Skies are sunny Friday morning, but clouds are likely to increase through the day. Expect a chilly overnight with temps plunging into the 20s.
Highs on Saturday will only reach the low 40s under sunny skies, but wind gusts of up to 20 mph will make it feel chillier. Sunday will be colder with temperatures mainly in the upper 30s. While the sun will be out, it will be even windier with gusts of 30 mph in the forecast.
We’ll warm up a bit on Monday with highs in the low to mid 40s before temps return close to normal on Tuesday on two more sunny days.
The long-range forecast for is calling for clouds and possible showers late on Thanksgiving Day, the weather service said in its Friday morning forecast discussion.
AccuWeather.com noted a potential snow storm the day after a Thanksgiving in its long range forecast. Much would need to occur for New Jersey to be affected, forecasters said.
The large storm could develop over the Midwest, the Mississippi and Ohio valleys and parts of the South on Thanksgiving, according to AccuWeather.com.
“Impacts can also occur along the coast, from the Carolinas to New England, including strong winds, high waves and tidal flooding, as the storm strengthens offshore... Regardless, travelers should plan in advance for the potential of flight delays or cancellations at major airports, including ... the airports in the New York City tri-state area.”

WARREN, NJ -- As a cross-curricular activity for his REACH and Spanish classes, grade 5 Angelo L. Tomaso (ALT) student Benjamin B recently interviewed local rising star Melina Rebimbas for the school’s newspaper.
Rebimbas, a trilingual Rutgers Preparatory High School student, former Central School Eagle and Warren Middle School Wolverine, and elite soccer player, sat down with Benjamin over Zoom on Wednesday, November 2, and discussed topics such as her unique ability to speak three languages, growing up in Warren, and her recent participation in the U-17 FIFA World Cup as a member of the U-17 Women’s National Soccer Team.
In front of a small audience that included students, staff, Principal Christine Smith, and the District Superintendent, Dr. Matthew Mingle, Rebimbas described her family dynamics to Benjamin, who asked if speaking multiple languages provided her with a better appreciation of different cultures.

“All the different cultures coming together and combining as one in my big family is really special,” Rebimbas, who speaks Spanish, Portuguese, and English, explained. Rebimbas notes that as she grew up and understood where her family members hailed from, her desire to embrace and celebrate her family's culture grew stronger.
Rebimbas went on to explain how speaking multiple languages also helps her form relationships with athletes from all over the world. While playing against Spain and Brazil in the recent FIFA World Cup in India, Rebimbas was able to converse with her opponents on and off the field and build unique relationships with athletes like herself.
Benjamin asked Rebimbas how she got to where she is today. “I started playing soccer when I was three. I played Rec soccer from five to eight, and then I played for the Watchung Hills Soccer Club before joining my current team (PDA).”
Rebimbas explained that soccer is her passion. “It has never felt like work to me. I’ve always wanted to train and put in the hours of practice. I think that's why I’ve gotten as far as I have, and I know I have so much further to go, and I’m so excited.” Rebimbas was named High School Gatorade Player of the Year for the 2021-2022 school year.
Benjamin then asked Rebimbas how she managed her schoolwork while playing high-level soccer and traveling outside the country for games. “I developed good study habits at an early age and have always loved school.“ Rebimbas, who takes both AP and Honors classes, told Benjamin that she tries to maintain a healthy balance of fun, happiness, and the willingness to study and work hard in school.
As the interview questions ended, Benjamin asked Rebimbas if she had anything extra that she wanted to share. Rebimbas took a moment to reflect before responding, “If you have a passion, follow it; follow your heart. If you find something that you love, there should be nothing stopping you from doing it. There are so many things out there in this world; once you find your little thing, just go out there and do it.”
Both Benjamin and Rebimbas received high praise from Principal Smith. “Ben took this opportunity as a journalist seriously and interviewed Ms. Rebimbas like a professional! We are truly grateful for Ms. Rebimbas taking the time to inspire our students to work hard and to find their passion.”
The district looks forward to following Melina’s academic and athletic career and thanks Señora Noralys Rebimbas and Ms. Nancy Andrews for coordinating the interview between Benjamin and Melina.

JLL announced that it is nearing full occupancy at the 120,528 square foot, Class A office property located at 10 Independence Blvd. in Warren, N.J., following a new lease with clinical trial company, Amici Clinical Research.
Amici is a division of the IMA Group’s network of integrated research sites specializing in clinical trials in multiple therapeutic areas. The company signed a long-term lease for 6,402 square feet of custom space on the property’s first floor.
JLL represented the building’s ownership, American Equity Partners (AEP), in the transaction. Amici is relocating and expanding from 34 E. Somerset St. in Raritan and will take occupancy of its new space next month.
10 Independence Blvd. is a four-story office property built in 1988 and meticulously renovated by American Equity Partners to meet the demands of corporate occupiers seeking superior quality space. Ownership redesigned the building’s two-story atrium as a bright and welcoming modern entrance, and upgraded common areas, restrooms and elevator cabs.
New amenities include a common conference space, expansive tenant lounge with game room, and a comprehensive fitness center, while EV charging stations have been installed within the 410-car exterior surface parking lot. Major tenants at 10 Independence Blvd. include pharmaceutical company Cipla USA, Inc., Envision Pharma and wireless giant, T-Mobile. AEP is also constructing a new retail building at the site that will be anchored by Dunkin’ Donuts and is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023.
Ownership has completed a custom buildout for Amici, creating an efficient and highly collaborative space that will enable the company to conduct its work with participants in clinical trials for vaccines and new therapies. Amici has expertise in fatty liver, cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurologic diseases as well as endocrinology, dermatology and vaccine studies, among the fastest-growing categories of clinical research today.
JLL managing director Bob Ryan and associate TJ Romano serve as exclusive leasing agents for 10 Independence Blvd. and represented the landlord in the lease with Amici. Larry Dickstein, president and CEO of Dickstein Real Estate Services, represented the tenant.
“We are delighted to announce this new lease that brings 10 Independence Blvd. to 92 percent occupancy and solidifies the property’s position as a leading corporate location in prestigious Warren Township,” said Ryan. “The building’s consistent appeal to premier corporate occupiers is a testament to American Equity Partners’ repositioning effort and its commitment to meet the needs of tenants seeking exceptional work environments and best-in-class amenities.”
10 Independence Blvd. is situated within the 118-acre Somerset Hills Corporate Center, a bucolic business park at the interchange of Exit 33 off Interstate 78. The building is within walking distance of local restaurants, coffee shops and parks in Warren, a town consistently ranked among the nation’s best places to live and part of a submarket whose residents provide a deep and highly educated labor pool. The property is almost equidistant from New York City and Philadelphia, and less than 20 minutes from Morristown and Newark Airport.

TRENTON, NJ — The New Jersey Fish and Game Council voted Tuesday to reinstate the state's black bear hunt.

From January to October 2022, compared to the same time last year, bear incidents are up 237% in the state, according to the Governor's office. Those incidents include at least 62 aggressive encounters with humans, 89 instances of property damage and attacks on livestock and pets.

“The facts on the ground have shown that we cannot rely on nonlethal methods alone to protect New Jersey residents from a growing black bear population,” Murphy said in a statement. “Today’s actions will facilitate the reinstatement of a regulated black bear hunt this year to help limit dangerous interactions between people and bears to protect public safety.”
After the Council's vote, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection approved a new Comprehensive Black Bear Management Plan, which will permit a bear hunt from December 5-10. An additional hunt will be permitted from December 14-17 if the bear population isn't reduced by 20% during the first hunt.
The Sierra Club's New Jersey chapter disagrees with the decision, calling it "disgraceful" and "beyond disappointing."
"The state needs to go directly to communities with high bear populations, educate them on smart behavior and provide them with the incentives for better management of trash,” Anjuli Ramos-Busot, New Jersey Director of the Sierra Club said in a statement. “The public came out even with a 5-day notice and completely opposed this hunt. The Council still voted yes, unanimously, demonstrating that the decision was already made before the meeting even started. Governor Murphy, this is unacceptable.”
Warren County Commissioner James R. Kern III, has previously spoken in favor of this move by the Governor's office. “For several years, I have called on this administration to resume the bear hunt in our state. The increased bear population has resulted in more encounters with residents and property in Northwest New Jersey. The hunt, in addition to other nonlethal methods, is an important tool to assist in curtailing the number of bears.” According to a release from Kern, Warren County had the 3rd most sightings in New Jersey with 230.
District 24 Lawmakers Commend Decision to Reinstate Bear Hunt. Senator Steven Oroho and Assemblymen Parker Space and Hal Wirths (all R-24) commended the decision to reinstate New Jersey’s bear hunt and expressed appreciation to Governor Murphy for his willingness to follow the wildlife experts. “Hunting is an important part of the comprehensive set of practices that the state employs to manage the black bear population and minimize danger to people and property,” said Senator Oroho. “By his executive action to allow the bear hunt to recommence, I believe the Governor is recognizing this fact and I applaud his actions. Going forward, I hope the Administration will continue to follow the data and allow the wildlife conservation experts—who best understand the issue—to guide New Jersey’s bear management policies.”
