How to Stay Healthy to Enjoy Your Nest Egg

You are a hard worker. You put in dedicated, long hours in the office.You work hard!

Your retirement savings have been steadily building over the years.

Will you be healthy enough to enjoy it?

Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, which does research on population aging shares that in a recent study, 81% of retirees said that the most important ingredient for a happy retirement is good health.

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.

Hormone Replacement Therapyget healthy

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.

Balancing hormones can help men and women become strong and energetic.

Dr. Abraham Jacob – Hormone Replacement Therapy Testimonial

Dr. Jacob’s own success with Hormone Replacement Therapy was a part of the inspiration to create Heart Vitality in Plano, TX.

When Dr. Jacob was in his mid-40s, he started experiencing extreme exhaustion. It was more than just the demands of raising two boys and running a busy cardiology practice.  He was not resting well and so even a 10-minute drive left him fatigued. The lack of energy was debilitating and concerning.dr-abraham-jacob

A colleague, who Dr. Jacob noticed had a lot of energy and looked very fit, shared his success with hormone replacement therapy.

Dr. Jacob decided to get educated and learn the science behind hormone replacement therapy. He took a course in age management through Cenegenics.  He also had his own bloodwork done and the results showed that his hormones where low.

After Dr. Jacob began testosterone injections, he finally had the required energy and motivation to exercise on a regular basis. Instead of hitting the couch after work, he had the stamina to hit the gym. Balanced hormones and daily exercise resulted in an increase in lean muscle mass.

Now in his early 50s, Dr. Jacob feels that he is more fit than he was in his youth.

With his own hormone balancing success, Dr. Jacob was thrilled to be able to help his cardio patients. In the past, he was able to give them the right medication to help control their heart disease and Diabetes. Now, he is also able to help them balance their hormones so that they have the motivation and energy to exercise and eat healthy.

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.

Just like Dr. Jacob, we encourage you to take the first step in improving your quality of life.

Please call Heart & Vitality at 972-596-7399 to schedule your initial bloodwork.

As We Age, We Tend To Gain Weight. Here’s Why…

Dr. Abraham Jacob shares 5 reasons you are gaining weight in an article he wrote for Natural Awakenings Magazine.
As we age, our hormones tend change and we tend to gain more weight. scale

Hormone Imbalance & Weight Gain

  1. Estrogen & Testosterone levels decrease causing weight gain and the redistribution of fat causing an apple or pear shaped body.
  2. Increased insulin levels can reduce the body’s ability to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, resulting in weight gain and sometimes Diabetes.
  3. Hypothyroidism causes our metabolism to slow down and can result in weight gain.
  4. Leptin, a hormone released by fat cells, triggers the brain to feel satisfied and reduces the urge to eat. The brain can become less sensitive, resulting in not feeling full during or after a meal.
  5. If your body is out of sync and suffering from a hormonal imbalance, your efforts to get healthy and fit are uphill battle that you may never defeat.

You can break the cycle of weight gain by optimizing your hormones. A simple blood test to check four major hormones levels, sex hormones, leptin, insulin, and thyroid hormone may point to the reason you are gaining weight.
