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.

Meet Ashley Molloy, Managing Director & Weight Loss Program Director at Heart & Vitality at Plano

Growing up in Pittsburg, Texas has had a monumental influence in Ashley’s professional career, and her constant goal to provide “hometown” service is key to the comfortable atmosphere that she has been able to produce at Heart and Vitality.Ashley Photo 1

Ashley received her certification in Medical Practice Management from the Practice Management Institute in Dallas Texas, and has used her knowledge and unending passion for continuous improvement that truly reflects the values of care and concern for the clients.

That passion and dedication also translates over to Ashley’s role as Weight Loss Program Director at Heart & Vitality.

With Dr. Jacob’s training in Age Management Medicine in the fall of 2012, many of the staff at Heart & Vitality used his new-found knowledge on nutrition and weight loss to live a healthy lifestyle. Ashley implemented a Low Glycemic Index Diet along with HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training and enjoyed her strong health and fitness levels.

A short time later, Ashley purchased Women’s Fitness Magazine which featured the 3x Ms. Bikini Olympia, Ashley Kaltwasser and her 12-week competition diet and exercise program.  Ashley had never heard about the bodybuilding division, Bikini. It sparked her interest and she begin researching various competition training programs. She found an online based program. (Team VIP Online) and started with their basic plan, which is not meant for competition, but for beginners new to the fitness world.

When Ashley first decided to commit to the program, she knew that she had to put 100% effort into it in order to succeed and once she made the mental commitment, she never looked back.

Ashley was thrilled with the significant differences in her body: lowered body fat and increased muscle definition and decided to enter a Bikini Competition.  In her first show, at the Oklahoma Championships she brought home (3) first place titles and was named the Overall Winner of the Bikini Novice Category. Three additional competitions netted Ashley several more top finishes.

Since she found such a passion in nutrition and exercise, Ashley earned her Fitness Nutrition Certification and established the Weight Loss clinic at Heart and Vitality.

Ashley uses her training as part of a healthy lifestyle and does not subject her body to crash dieting.  With this same philosophy, Ashley designed the weight loss program not as a “quick fix” or “yo-yo diet” but rather to educate patients on a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and exercise for a true-lifestyle change.
