Understanding the relationships between mind and body, including little-known information about the brain, can lead to a happier, healthier life, notes the author of this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Health and Aging 101: What Makes You Tick by R. Eugene Chieppo.

Learning ‘what makes you tick,’ the author writes, can help people open themselves up to happiness.

Good health – a trait many people seek – is within reach if people understand the relationship between their conscious and unconscious minds. That’s the theory put forward by the author of a new book focusing on health and aging. R. Eugene Chieppo notes that the main difference between the conscious and subconscious selves is that the subconscious would prefer things to remain the same even as the conscious works to improve life.

By promoting understanding of the relationship between the different aspects of the mind and body, “Health and Aging 101: What Makes You Tick” aims to guide others to eliminate things related to mental anguish such as anxiety, obesity, depression, and smoking and other addictions. Learning “what makes you tick,” the author writes, can help people open themselves up to happiness. Chieppo shares his own experience with successfully quitting smoking in 1965 when he rediscovered the book “Solar Plexus of the Abdominal Brain,” which talked about more than one type of brain. Applying those lessons of mind over matter this time helped Chieppo to stop smoking within two weeks.

Put in its simplest terms, the “conscious self is the resident caretaker of the body,” the author writes. As such, the conscious self may possess knowledge of how the body functions but most caretakers fail, leading to illness in mind and body. Chieppo urges readers to question conventional treatment and prevention espoused by agencies such as the FDA, AMA as they seem to focus on managing symptoms without promoting prevention. Chapters on aging, eating for better health, supplements and positive expectations further promote Chieppo’s vision of people taking charge of their own health and extending their lives through a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection.
