Item description for It's All In Your Head: Change Your Mind - Change Your Health (Capital Ideas) by Mark Pettus...

In America today, many suffer from the "Lifestyle Syndrome," where poor eating habits, lack of exercise, depression and anxiety have caused an epidemic of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood lipids, substance abuse, and general poor health, not to mention the cost. We are an addicted society and need to change how we think, feel, and behave to live better and longer. But how?

In "It's All in Your Head," Dr. Mark Pettus tells how he turned his own life around and uses current scientific research to show that the secret to good health has been "in our heads" all the time. The will power to change in a positive manner, he reveals, is a biologic response that can be "turned on" in just four to six weeks to make us "addicted to health."

Dr. Pettus's four-week self-directed program uses positive emotions, meditation, dedicated work, and self-awareness, to begin to achieve health, healing, and life satisfaction. "It's All in Your Head" promises to change your mindset.

Crave activities like exercise, a healthy diet, less stress, and social stimulation as much as a smoker craves the next cigarette.
Gain greater awareness and control over the choices you make and their biological consequences.
Improve blood pressure, heart rate, and metabolic rate
Change your behavior and activities for better physical, emotional, and spiritual health
Create value in your life as you get up and start moving
Transform the fear in your life to greater confidence and well-being.

It's accessible, easy-to-absorb and put-into-action health care.

Reviews - What do customers think about It's All In Your Head: Change Your Mind - Change Your Health (Capital Ideas)?

Groundbreaking!  Jul 12, 2008
In a very accessible and pragmatic way, Dr Pettus brings the burgeoning science of mind-brain-body into an effective roadmap for effectively changing behavior. He provides a lot of research data in support of many strategies for reducing allostatic load (a fascinating concept) and improving health.
This book won't change anything  Aug 8, 2007
I thought this book was useless and not helpful, in the least. While it contained some tips on how to change your health for the better, it's really nothing more than a compilation of recycled info on how to do so (eat more veggies, take in good fats, exercise, etc.). I learned nothing new.
Also, there was little emphasis on how one would exactly go about changing their mind. While the author included research from scientific studies involving "mind over matter" and the power of the human mind, he failed to tie them into his main thesis. Because of that, at times, the book seemed convoluted and unfocused.
Bottom line: Don't waste your money on this book -- it's chock full of very basic info that you can find anywhere on the 'net. The only reason I gave it two stars is because he DID include the importance of omega-3 foods and the utilization of relaxation techniques and exercises. And, for the extreme novice, his tips COULD serve as a jumping board.
Hope for Those Addicted to the Unhealthy Lifestyle  Feb 13, 2007
Dr. Mark Pettus is a rare doctor--one who makes changing your lifestyle to improve your health something anyone can achieve. He's compassionate, nonjudgmental, and inspirational. He looks at the whole picture -- what you eat and drink, how you exercise, how you interact with other people, and how you handle stress -- and makes suggestions for "bite-size" changes that can help you wean yourself off unhealthy behavior and into a whole new way of being. He helps you understand how your brain works, so you can literally "change your mind" and focus it on healthy changes in your life.
