Personalized Hormone Programs for Women
While hormones can become imbalanced at any age in women, they most often become imbalanced during the reproductive years, perimenopause and menopause. During the reproductive years, hormones commonly become imbalanced due to stress, lifestyle habits, lack of sleep, and overwork. However, in youthful women, imbalances often correct themselves because younger bodies heal faster and can rectify imbalances more effectively. As women age, it becomes more difficult for the body to heal imbalances, and as hormone levels drop, women often experience symptoms of age related hormonal decline.
Initial phases of ovarian hormonal decline bring about the phase of perimenopause, which leads to symptoms that include fatigue, lack of motivation, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, infertility, anovulation, headaches, increased PMS symptoms, bloating, water retention and migraines. Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone can be restored with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to reduce the symptoms of perimenopause.
From three to ten years after perimenopause begins, women enter menopause, which marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. During menopause, the adrenal glands are supposed to take over the production of estrogen and progesterone, and because most women have put long-term stress on their adrenals, by their fourth or fifth decade, the adrenals are unable to meet the body’s demands for hormone production.
Central Maryland Bioidentical Hormones Specialist Dr. Paul Beals’ provides Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs that can replace missing or low essential hormones to reduce the symptoms associated with menopause. Insufficient levels of essential hormones often cause women to experience:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Thinning hair
- Wrinkling skin
- Thinning bones
- Mood swings
- Memory problems
- Low libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Increased body fat

Customized Hormone Replacement Programs for Men
Starting in the thirties, male hormone production begins to decline at a rate of around one percent each year, and by the time men reach their early forties or fifties, hormone levels rapidly decline. Testosterone, the primary male hormone, is produced in the testicles and partly in the adrenal glands. While aging is the most prevalent reason for reduced testosterone production, factors such as stress, poor dietary factors, excessive alcohol intake, or prescription medication can also lead to imbalanced or deficient hormone levels.
Andropause is the phase of male hormonal decline that occurs when men enter middle age and cannot make the levels of androgens that they produced during their youth.
Central Maryland Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Dr. Paul Beals, provides Hormone Replacement Therapy programs for men that can help to reduce the symptoms of andropause and age-related hormonal decline or imbalance. As a result of this slowed hormone production, men often experience symptoms that include:
- Muscle atrophy
- Thinning hair
- Lack of motivation
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced stamina and endurance
- Low libido
- Increased body fat
