What’s In Your Wallet?

Do You Trust What’s In Your Wallet?

Most people know this popular phrase from a credit card commercial inspiring us to ponder “Do I trust what I have in my wallet to match my expectations?”  Most of the commercials reflect a comical scene of a person in a situation polar opposite to that of their expectation.

A bit about money: Your wallet is what you have allotted yourself to spend now.
A checking account is what pays the bills.
Your savings account is expected to bail you out for unexpected financial burdens (such as a car repair) and allow for ‘fun’ (like new clothes & vacations).
Your retirement is to support you for the rest of your life.

So what does money have to do with your health? Ask yourself the following:

  1. Does my health reflect my expectation?
  2. Will my future health ‘wallet’ allow me the energy, fun, work I need now?
  3. Can my ‘health bank’ look promising for the future or should I get sick, is my ‘bank’ strong enough to pull?
  4. Am I being bamboozled by society to believe that you’ll be able to build a health ‘retirement’ later?

Many of my patients look at me a bit cockeyed with these questions. Some disregard and others start to ponder… requesting more information about this conceptual health “bank.”

Recognize The Best Bank For You

You have the ability and expectation to have the BEST health card and be a member of the best health bank account. Simply put; what you eat, how you sleep, and how you manage stress are directly related to what is in your health wallet. When you eat food – it either fills your nutrient accounts or depletes from it. You are either investing or spending.  And depending on how many vacations you take or how often you eat something just because you know it is good for you; your account is growing or overdrawn.

Imagine your health bank contacting you to tell you “You are overdrawn.  You do not have any health left in your wallet. Do not go through Dunkin’ Donut’s today.”  Imagine the bank charging you $30 overdraft fee each time you were deficient on sleep, nutrients, proteins, good fats and exercise?
Newsflash… this does happen. Your health bank sends overdraft notices in the form of joint pain, headaches, heartburn, IBS, insomnia and rashes and very obviously in the form of CoPays for doctor visits and prescriptions.

Health = Deposits (Good foods + water + exercise + sleep + stress reduction) minus withdrawals (processed foods, white carbs, sugar, HFCS, Trans fats, alcohol, caffeine).

Healthy Deposits and Negative Withdrawals

Picture this: You go to your health care provider and they inform you that your body requires at least $120 per week health balance to function optimally. Envision all food and drink either deposits or withdraws toward your $6240-7800 yearly goal.  Veggies deposit $3 each, fruit and high-quality protein = $2 each, whole grain $1 each and each minute of exercise =$2 each.  Processed foods withdraw $1 each, desserts -$2 each, soda, caffeine, and sugary drinks withdraw $3 each, etc. We all know we cannot toss $6000-7000 in the bank in a month; so what makes us think we can lose a bunch of weight and stay healthy in one month?

Thinking in terms of a health ‘bank’ allows us to understand clearly that we can take ‘money’ out of our health account. But if we aren’t investing the body will soon be sending us an overdraft notice.

Nutrient density not only supports the body’s needs to work optimally, but it also helps to decrease the “age” factor and cravings.

“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.
