Are Your Energies in a Jam?

Submitted by Patricia Zub, MD

It’s no surprise that 4 of the letters in the word “Health” are HEAL. True healing is going “mainstream” these days with many practitioners offering all different kinds of healing. You may have heard of “Full Spectrum Healing” and might even be curious to know it can help you.

Using Functional Medicine at 4 Better Health,  we focus on whole-body wellness which includes“Rebalancing” your energies.

What is Full Spectrum Healing?  


Energy flow in our body is like the flow of cars on the highway. When we’re in good health, it’s a nice ride on a Sunday afternoon – smooth and steady. Now picture the MassPike during rush hour and it’s a totally different story! When people suffer from illness, their energy is more like quitting time on the Pike during a snow emergency! Full Spectrum Healing (FSH) is like opening up 2, 3, even a dozen extra lanes, allowing the body’s energy to flow much more freely, easing the “congestion” creating illness.  To fully appreciate how this leads to better health, you need to know a little bit about “energy anatomy”.

The fact that we all have a physical body is an obvious one, but what many may not know is that we also have an energy body. There are seven major energy centers in our body called chakras. Each of these energy centers or chakras correspond with the major endocrine glands in our body and has their own unique characteristics. Pretty cool, huh?

Just as our physical body grows and develops over time so does our energy body. Chakras begin developing prior to birth starting at the first chakra, which is at the base of our spine, proceeding upwards as we grow. Each chakra has its own vibration, frequency, color and body structures it keeps healthy. The seven main chakras are the seven colors of the rainbow (remember ROYGBIV?). The first chakra’s frequency corresponds to the musical note C, the color red, adrenal glands, legs and feet. The second chakra energy corresponds to the musical note D, the color orange, the ovaries, testes, bladder and kidneys. The third chakra the note E, color yellow, pancreas, stomach and small intestine. You get the idea, right? Each chakra has many other individual characteristics, but more on that another time.

FSH works at each of the chakras centers at its own frequency, vibration or the easiest way to think about it, color. The seven colors of the rainbow are the “full spectrum” of these main chakras and what the healer works with. Ever feel stuck in life, or that you have low energy and no-one can figure out why?  Brain fog? Inability to complete tasks?  Emotional ‘for no reason’? Have a nagging issue that just won’t go away? Well, it likely is related to changes in your energy system. If you don’t want to plow through the day running on caffeine, you’re tired of beating yourself up for being in a rut, or dealing with that nagging whatever it is, consider adding this modality. Everyone could use a fast-pass, no traffic Mass Pike commute 4 Better Health!

How is it done?

FSH is typically done in a quiet tranquil setting. The patient is relaxed and the practitioner uses light touch on multiple areas of the body. Each session is unique to the patient’s need on that day. Most sessions are 45-60 minutes in length.

Dr. Patti Zub is a full spectrum healer and teaching assistant at the Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine. She integrates her knowledge of functional and energy medicine to treat the whole patient’s body, mind and spirit.

“Frustrated with conventional medicine philosophy of just take a pill for the rest of your life? Functional Medicine is your answer. Since I first saw Lisa 2 months ago I have lost over 10 percent of my original body weight and have more energy than I can ever remember having.”

“After suffering for over 2 years and seeing many practitioners (who often dismissed my fatigue & pain) Dr Zub adjusted my medications and supplements. As a result, my baseline functioning and health is finally better. Dr. Zub works as a partner with you the patient, is earnest, humble and actively learning She is a Gift!”

“I feel like I have finally found a physician who is willing to work as a partner with me with the goal of improving my health. Dr Zub is an outstanding physician both from a diagnostic and a Functional Medicine perspective. I’ve recommended her to many of my friends.”

Karen Bird – Needham MA

“In a very short amount of time, Dr. Zub has been able to identify and address underlying chronic health issues that I have been dealing with, that other doctors were unable to do. I love 4 Better Health’s approach to treat the entire person thru a therapeutic partnership and get to the root of issues, not just throw medicine at a symptom. I truly sing her praises and have already referred others to the practice. I truly wish I had found Dr. Zub a long time ago as she has been life changing!”

Linda LaCamera(1)“Finding 4 Better Health was a blessing after many years of traditional medicinal doctors /Endocrinologists being unable to get me to feeling optimal. Dr Zub listened to me, truly heard me & devised a proactive plan for me to have a better life. My body is still healing, but I am no longer barely functioning to get through my daily life. I can exercise again without being completely depleted of energy. I have been able to successfully lose 20 pounds. I feel I can always contact Dr. Zub with any questions or concerns I may have. We continue to work together to find the right course of action for my health. I can’t say enough great things about their practice.”

Thank you, Dr. Zub, for taking a genuine interest in each aspect of my life affecting my health and vitality; and for taking the time to educate me on the ways in which my body functions on a metabolic level, and the things I can do to better manage my energy and well-being!”

“Prior to working with Lisa I’d have to be home-bound one day every other weekend in order to deal with my problem. Now that I don’t need to do that anymore I’m back to hiking/mountaineering, kayaking, bike riding, snow-shoeing, being with friends, and spending time in the White Mountains. I am soo thankful for all 4 Better Health has done for me. You had a MAJOR hand in getting me back into this kind of shape [and I’m looking forward to getting even stronger and more fit]. I feel in command of my life again and I am enjoying doing all the outdoorsy, active things I love to do! What a gift you have given me!”

jenweightloss“My weight has always been a fight. I was having trouble sleeping  and walking upstairs because of pain in my hip and knee. I have tried a million diets but in the end I never felt in control of what I ate. When I made the decision to do the cleanse/detox I had my reservations. But it changed me. What I want
to eat and what my body craves. I feel better than I have in years. I am  sleeping better than ever and taking the stairs every chance I get. In 6 months I’ve gone from 265# to 180#. It’s all planning and consistency!”


I was exhausted and in pain- aching from my neck to toes and waking up 4 or 5 times a night. My doctors told me it was just old age. Within a week of taking a few supplements and small changes to my diet recommended by 4 Better Health; my pain was drastically reduced and I began sleeping so much better. I am doing much more than I had been able to do in a very long time, my spirits are better, my outlook is better and I couldn’t ask for anything more. I would recommend this practice to everyone.
