What is Andropause?
Andropause refers to a period of marked testosterone decline in men, along with the various symptoms that may result. Unlike menopause, andropause is slow and progressive with testosterone decreasing by nearly 1% each year after age 30. As testosterone levels gradually decline, energy, stamina and short-term memory are slowly affected. Only after experiencing major symptoms do most men begin looking for ways to feel normal again.
Queen Anne’s County Andropause Specialist, Paul Beals, M.D. in the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson Maryland area, understands that testosterone is not the only hormone that may be out of balance in your body. Other hormones that may be affected include estridol, progesterone, dehydroepiandrosterone cortisol and thyroid hormones. All of these need to be in balance for your body to maintain peak wellness.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Some of the physiological changes you may experience during andropause include decreased lean body mass, increased fat, decreased bone mineral density, decreased body hair and skin thickness, reduced muscle mass and strength, diminished libido and sexual activity, reduced energy, impaired sleep quality, impaired cognitive function, irritability and depression.
Benefits of Natural Hormone Therapy
Although there are several medical conditions associated with imbalanced hormones, the most common cause is simply aging. When your body slows down its production of testosterone and other hormones, they naturally become unbalanced.
Luckily for modern men, Hormone Replacement Therapy is a medical breakthrough that can provide the necessary relief to embrace this time of life with confidence and comfort.
While traditional doctors often consider these symptoms normal signs of aging that don’t require treatment, Central Maryland Andropause Specialist, Paul Beals, M.D. in the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson Maryland area, helps patients every day to experience the tremendous benefit of replacing declining levels of hormones through Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical in their molecular structure to the hormones produced naturally within the human body. BHRT helps to relieve the symptoms and conditions of hormonal imbalances with little or no side effects.
By measuring and regulating the body’s hormone levels, BHRT provides the balance needed for healthy aging and treats diseases both preventatively and curatively. This natural hormone treatment has produced powerful, therapeutic results for many men suffering from andropause or low-T, and it may help you.
Reverse the signs of Aging with Testosterone Replacement Therapy
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above and you believe hormones are to blame, you deserve to know that there are solutions available and you owe it to yourself to pursue them. Bioidentical Hormones is a treatment option that supplements your body with the hormones that it should be producing but it is not. Bioidentical Hormones are a natural alternative to the synthetic hormones used in regular, non-identical hormone replacement therapy. For men suffering with andropause that want to level out their hormone decline and prevent erratic, potentially dangerous fluctuations of testosterone levels, BHRT may be just the solution needed. Dr. Paul Beals also offers Clomid in conjunction with his Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy with Clomid
Clomid can lead to an increase in testosterone and sperm count for those men who are suffering from low testosterone levels. Clomid helps stimulate the body’s own production of testosterone and it doesn’t interfere with the body’s checks and balances of testosterone. Dr. Paul Beal is one of the few doctor’s to offer this alternative therapy for low testosterone.

I had been looking for a doctor like Dr. Beals for 20 years. Dr. Beals discovered that I had high levels of toxic heavy metals in my blood, that my testosterone levels were lower than they should be, and that my body was not absorbing B vitamins. Since I started working with him, I feel healthier than I did when I was 40. My hormones are balanced, the heavy metals have been removed, I’ve lost 4 inches from my waistline, and I’ve gained 10 pounds of healthy muscle mass. Dr. Beals is a rare and valuable asset to all those wise enough to seek his counsel. Charlie, Age 60
