Why is it so difficult to change our beliefs and behaviors even when we know they no longer serve us? How can certain individuals reverse "incurable" disease while others suffer the effects of childhood wounds despite years of therapy? How is it that the centenarians make up the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population—even though the majority of people over the age of 100 rarely visit their doctors?
When Dr. Mario Martinez began his career in clinical neuropsychology, he was determined to find the answers to baffling questions like these. With The MindBody Code, he shares the rewards of an investigation that has spanned generations and cultures to reveal the most effective methods for initiating deep and lasting change—and the empowering new science of biocognition that substantiates their results.
Far from a quick-fix approach, The MindBody Code will challenge you to embrace a bold paradigm for health and well-being that requires your courage, patience, and commitment. You will not only learn the basics of this cutting-edge science, you will also learn to communicate with your body in its own "biosymbolic" language to begin making changes that till this point may have been elusive at best. Through fascinating case studies and practical training in embodying the methodology, Dr. Martinez illuminates:
- The overt and subtle ways our cultural beliefs impact our immune system—and the pathways to healing the archetypal wounds of shame, abandonment, and betrayal
- How to break through the ceilings of abundance that limit prosperity and create the "subcultures of wellness" that will help you reach your full potential
- Lessons from the centenarians—how to transform "aging consciousness" to continually increase your value and competence as you grow older
- Psychospiritual conflicts—getting to the root of challenges often mistaken as psychiatric disorders
Why do so many popular methods of personal transformation fail despite our efforts and intentions? Because they don't address the mindbody code—your body's "operating instructions" for interpreting your world, creating your sense of self, and defining what's really possible for you. The MindBody Code is your key to safely and successfully confronting your fears, disillusionment, and learned helplessness with tools that harness the hope, joy, and unconditional love you hold within.

A must read. Review by Ivan Mirosav
Hands down the most powerfully influential book I have read in years. In The Mindbody Code, Mario Martinez skillfully and plainly connects the inner/outer workings of our humanness that ultimately shape and define our lives. He then brings to utter simplicity the way that we can shift these workings so that we can create real, evolving change to follow our newly-opened perspectives. Very enlightening - highly recommended! (Posted on August 19, 2016)

I am a widow counselor and coach. This Mind Body Code of Mario Martinez is the most helpful therapy self-help CD I have ever listened to. Review by Annie
Mr. Martinez' instructions about proper, healing forgiveness are truly revolutionary and tell us why the old religious views on forgiveness simply do not work. Simply put, Mario Martinez instructs us how to forgive the wound caused by the abuse. He says that we should never, ever forgive the abuser because what they did was unforgiveable. Forgiving the abuser is a bandaid that works for only about 24 hours. Thank you Mario! He also helped me so much to understand that the body reflects the feelings we are having and so we can discover what needs healing by paying attention to the feelings - especially the negative ones. He explained to me for the first time WHY we MUST "feel the feelings". Doing this heals us. It is really that simple. (Posted on October 24, 2015)
New Insights into the Mind Body Connection Review by John Chancellor
If you have ever made a rational decision to change some behavior but found that no matter how hard you tried, you simply were not successful, then this book could change your life. I’ve known countless people who vowed to change some behavior, had some initial success but eventually fell back into their old habits.
Dr. Mario Martinez, author of The Mind Body Code – How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your Health, Longevity and Success, explores why changing behavior is so difficult and more importantly how we can make permanent changes in our lives. According to Dr. Martinez, “Many failures in life have to do with trying to solve experiential problems with intellectualized solutions.” The brain has often been compared to a computer. Dr. Martinez says there is a fundamental difference. “Computers process data; human beings contextualize meaning.”
If humans were more like computers, we could simply analyze information, and select the best possible outcome from a list of choices. But we are not at all like computers. According to Dr. Martinez, we have been conditioned by our “cultural editors”, our parents, teachers, peers and others of influence in our lives. Based on what we were taught, we assign meaning to events that shape our beliefs. In order to change those experiential meanings, we need to bring them back up, feel the felt meaning and replace those felt meanings with new meanings that will help us move forward with more empowering behaviors.
Dr. Martinez’s goal with this book is to teach the reader about biocognitive theory – a term he coined to define his theory of mind-body-culture. The mind and body coemerge within a cultural history to give contextual meaning. That is to say that our culture – what we were taught by our cultural editors coemerge with our mind and body to directly impact our health, longevity and success.
Dr. Martinez is clearly trying to advance some new ways of thinking about how the human mind/body works. There will be some psychologists that will immediately dismiss much of his theory. For example, he says, “I believe that addictions are sociocultural self-distractions that serve to avoid worthiness and are not disease at all. If you assume that addiction is a disease, you can’t attribute any purposeful action on your part to something that simply ‘happens’ to you. You are responsible for your substance abuse only until your behavior is diagnosed. This concept of self-distraction also applies to obsessions, compulsions and any other excessive behavior.”
Dr. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist and has successfully treated thousands of patients. His writing style is to first introduce the theory and then lead the reader through the exercises necessary to implement it. This is not light reading. There are a number of new concepts/ideas that are introduced. In the Glossary, there are 11 pages of definitions. There is also an extensive bibliography of reference materials. This is not pop-psychology but a serious study of the mind/body/cultural connection. The nature and depth of the writing means it will be a little more tedious to read.
I find his arguments very compelling. I am not sure that the average reader will be able to read the book and work through the exercises without some guidance. I believe that it will be necessary to not just read the book but to study the concepts, internalize them and put them into action. The exercises involve using a contemplative method to uncover the long held cultural beliefs that are holding you back. This method “shifts awareness from interpreting to witnessing the interpretations.” Dr. Martinez walks the reader through the process of identifying the improper cultural beliefs and substituting them for more healthy ones.
I highly recommend this book to any serious student of human behavior. You will find the treatment very fascinating and engaging.
I was provided a review copy of this book. (Posted on March 6, 2015)
