Fund Your Health by Reducing Colds by Dr. Lisa Williams


Health = Wealth

H-Asset: Immune Wealth

H-Investment: Incentive Spirometer

This is another very wise H-Investment that improves your overall health and wealth. Now is the perfect time to buy-in and get your H-Investments in place for the upcoming cold and flu season. Colds and flu are like a dip in the stock market, you still have to stay invested in your H-Portfolio despite feeling the heat. Rosenberg (2017) reported that last year’s “epidemic” hit small businesses particularly hard as they dealt with reduced staffing and significant loss of revenue.

Here is my H=W (Health = Wealth) formula: When I feel a cold or cough coming on, I use an incentive spirometer for 3-4 minutes, 3-6 times a day, depending on the severity of the respiratory problem. Spirometers can strengthen the lungs and breathing, which can prevent and reduce the incidence and duration of the respiratory ailment. Incentive spirometry has been found to decrease post-operative infections, and improve lung function in individuals with asthma, COPD, or other chronic respiratory conditions. This $10.00 H-Investment couldn’t give me a better return on my money.

According to the National Commission on Prevention Priorities, preventive services not only save lives, but also save money. Such measures could save nearly two million lives and nearly $4 billion dollars a year! 

I cannot express the importance of building an H-Portfolio that includes this important H-Investment. This is just one more way to pay your health forward by adding H-Investments to your and your family’s H-Portfolio that could fund your health. It is never too early or too late to invest in your health.
