Hey Moms; It’s Time to Put YOU on the List!

“To Do” lists

Most people have them. Whether the list is kept in your ICloud, laptop, purse calendar or handwritten on sticky notes; “To Do” lists are utilized all around the world as reminders of what needs to get done on. We write out appointments, kids’ sporting events, shopping lists, reminders for phone calls, housework, and impending projects.

What’s missing from many lists? YOU Especially if you are a Mom!

Before anyone gets offended, read through these comments. Perhaps you have said them lately?

  1. “I have no time to exercise”
  2. “I am too busy to eat breakfast because I am trying to get the kids fed and out the door”
  3. “I’m too busy and tired to read, do yoga, meditate, exercise or go out with friends”
  4. “My sneakers are too old, I need new ones before I exercise”
  5. “My husband has no problem leaving for an hour to exercise or go out with friends, but I have so much to do and feel bad leaving the house”

These aren’t the only ‘excuses’ people believe to be true. There are many others a Mom might express on a daily basis. Last week we kept count of people saying comments like these and counted at least 10 people a day between clients, patients, colleagues and spectators at sporting events. Many of the Moms we listened to were venting or CRYING about this – yet the idea of putting themselves on the “To Do” list was absurd. And, what baffles me most is the fact that their kids’ appointments, sporting events, and new sneakers are never put on the bottom of the list.

Happy Mom, Happy House

There is usually not a list without someone’s activities; yet a Mom’s need to go for a walk, meditate, go to the gym, read a book or laugh with friends is not just on the bottom of the list – it is typically not on the list. These things are imperative to maintain health.

*Newsflash* A house without a healthy Mom is a house that will not run properly. There is no “She always puts herself last” badge you will receive. It is not only ok to put yourself on the list ~ unfortunately not putting YOU on the list actually makes you more tired, more anxious and depressed, have higher blood pressure and weight, and have less patience for the millions of things on the list. This leads to a high cortisol level – low libido – and medications to “treat” the conditions listed.

Attention Moms: It is time to put you on the list! TODAY – not tomorrow or “once school gets out” or “once I get a new job” and definitely not “when I am less tired”. Talk with your partner and kids. Talk to your colleagues. Make a plan, put yourself on the list and as Nike says ‘JUST DO IT’.

If you or someone you love is suffering with an auto-immune condition, want more energy and less pain and are looking for an alternative to traditional medicine, you have found it! With their help you will be amazed at the power you have to change your path.”

“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.”

Micheal Annantuonio – 36 years old

“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!”

Colleen Adams

“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.
