Married Couple Proves Age Is Just a Number

Terrisa and Kirk Swan have been married for 29 years. She is 56 and he is 59 but they feel like they are in their 30s.

Terrisa and Kirk Swan have had success with Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Terrisa and Kirk Swan have had success with Hormone Replacement Therapy.

They have owned Swan Roofing, LLC for 39 years and Kirk still easily climbs roofs.

They own several acres of farm land in Pilot Point and Kirk happily cares for all of the yard work.

He also does 300 sits ups as part of his 3-hour workout on Saturdays.

Terrisa is 56 and helps her husband with the roofing business, the care and upkeep of their property and enjoys Barre3 workouts and power walking.

She has always lived a healthy lifestyle and when she started feeling a bit of sluggishness and her hormones showed they were starting to become depleted, Terrisa took the next step in taking care of herself by taking Bioidentical hormones.

Terrisa thinks she was able to avoid all of the common menopause symptoms like weight gain, night sweats and mood swings by balancing her hormones.

Now she sleeps like a baby, her energy levels are right where they need to be and she has good muscles mass and an enjoyable sex drive.

“Age is just a chronological number,” Terrisa shares. “You don’t have to be old.”

With the success of her own balanced hormones, Terrisa encouraged her husband to go see Dr. Jacob at Heart & Vitality in Plano.

Kirk had begun to experience a loss in muscle mass, exhaustion and he wasn’t sleeping well.

Thanks to testosterone pellets, Kirk has been able to avoid the mid-life crisis many men his age face. He has the motivation to exercise, which has led to an increase in muscle mass and he’s sleeping well. Most couples their age simply accept a slow fading of their intimate lives. However, Kirk and Terrisa still enjoy a great level of intimacy.

“I encourage everyone to pick your battles. You can fight aging. With your hormones in balance, it’s not hard to do what your body needs like exercising and eating clean,” Terrisa shares.

Dr. Jacob is dedicated to helping patients improve their quality of life. His approach to the science of age management has been shown to decrease the risk of age-related disease, increase physical and sexual vitality, improve sleep quality, increase muscle tone, decrease body fat and sharpen mental acuity.

We encourage you to take the first step in improving your quality of life.

6 Scary Facts About Hormonal Imbalance

Do your symptoms of imbalanced hormones scare you?Scary Facts About Hormone Imbalance Flier

Things like weight gain, depression, mood swings and exhaustion really can be scary.

At Heart and Vitality in Plano, we believe that just because you age, doesn’t mean that you have to be scared and suffer.

No one should have to live with an untreated hormone problem.
Here are 6 scary facts about hormonal imbalances

  1. Weight Gain/Low Metabolism
    Underlying hormonal imbalances make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight.
  2. Fatigue/Insomnia/Loss of Energy
    Can’t make it past mid-morning without some sort of pick-me-up? How about that mid-afternoon crash? It isn’t normal to feel sluggish, scattered or mentally foggy.
  3. Mood Swings
    Many experience mood swings and feel anxious in situations that they used to handle calmly before.
  4. Mental Fog
    Brain fog is typically characterized as an inability to focus, poor memory functioning, and difficulty learning new things.
  5. Decreased Libido
    Another noticeable symptom of hormonal imbalance is low libido, which starts with disturbed sleep. Without quality sleep our sex hormone production can diminish.
  6. Depression
    Depression and anxiety are well-known symptoms of low testosterone.

Restoring peace in your body

If you suffer from depression, insomnia, hot flashes, low libido or any other symptoms that may result from a hormonal imbalance, Dr. Jacob wants you to know that you are not alone, and there is no need for you to suffer any longer.

Dr. Abraham Jacob, a respected cardiologist in Plano, TX as well as a certified Age Management Specialist is dedicated to helping his patients live healthy, productive lives.

Here’s how Dr. Jacob of Heart & Vitality can help you improve your physical and emotional health so that you can enjoy the nest egg you’ve worked so hard to create:

Cardio Screenings

A cardiovascular screening is important because they are tests performed to find disease before symptoms begin. The goal of screening is to detect disease at its earliest and most treatable stage. This way, you can treat the risk factor with lifestyle changes before it ultimately leads to the development of heart disease.

For many patients, screening results can serve as a wake-up call. When the test comes back and you see abnormal numbers, it becomes personal. Suddenly, the idea of making lifestyle changes isn’t just a recommendation in a pamphlet. It’s something that can impact your life and health.

Studies have shown that normal testosterone levels help to keep blood sugar levels at a normal level, which could prevent diabetes, as well as maintaining cardiovascular health, which could prevent heart disease or other cardiovascular issues.
