The MindBody Code

How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your Health, Longevity, and Success

The MindBody Code

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 wellbeing that requires your courage, patience, and commitment. You will not only learn the basics of this cutting-edge science, you will 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 confront your fears, disillusionment, and learned helplessness with tools that harness the hope, joy, and unconditional love you hold within. Course objectives: Explain 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 Discuss 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 Utilize lessons from the centenarians—how to transform "aging consciousness" to continually increase your value and competence as you grow older Define psychospiritual conflicts—how to get to the root of challenges often mistaken as psychiatric disorders

The MindBody Self

The MindBody Self

In these turbulent times, just about every solution you can think of has been put forth by someone, somewhere, as a way to calm the waters and live with more happiness and ease. But the fact is you cannot think your way to a better life. Change isn’t something your mind can accomplish alone. It calls for mind and body to work together in a deeper unity than you may ever have imagined. Neuropsychologist Mario Martinez is a pioneer in the science of the mindbody —his term for that essential oneness of cognition and biology —and a passionate advocate for its power to reshape our lives, if we work with it consciously. In The MindBody Self, he builds on the foundation he laid in the critically acclaimed MindBody Code to explore the cultural conditions that coauthor our reality and shape every aspect of our lives, from health and longevity to relationships and self-esteem. Then he offers practical tools we can use to shed outworn patterns and create sustainable change. You’ll read about: • How our cultural beliefs affect the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of disease • The difference between growing older (which we all do) and “aging” by our culture’s standards (which we can learn not to do) • What happens when we move “beyond the pale” of our tribe’s expectations • How to navigate adversity using uncertainty as a guide • Biocognitive tools for a healthy life The MindBody Self presents groundbreaking ideas derived from rigorous scholarship —but you don’t need a background in science to use what you find here. Each chapter concludes with exercises and experiential processes that make complex scientific discoveries not only accessible, but applicable. The result is a paradigm shift in which the myths of doom are shattered by the science of hope, survival takes a back seat to meaning, and fear gives way to love.

Crack Your Mind, Body, Spirit Code to Transform Your Health

Back to Balance

Got Chronic Health Issues? Do you feel bogged down by negativity in your life? Are you suffering from disease or illness without a known cause? Have you ever had the suspicion that your physical challenges are trying to teach you something, but you just couldn't figure out what it was? What if chronic or recurring conditions are actually a higher power's way of communicating with us, but we just don't know how to decipher the messages? Though often ignored by Western medicine, the connection between mind, body, and spirit is a strong one. Looking for a Magic Bullet Solution? Have you ever suspected that you could make yourself sick or well based on the power of your thoughts? This is the mind-body-spirit connection in action. You can think of these three aspects like the legs of a table-if any one of the legs is weak, you're apt to experience poor health. But how do you bring the table back in balance if one of the legs is wobbly? Is it all about nutrition or exercise? Will meditation or yoga act as a cure-all? It's easy to wish for a magic bullet approach-one thing that will solve all your health problems-but the truth is more complex than that. Achieve Vibrant Health on Every Level Cassie Sobelton presents a comprehensive health solution in her debut book, "Back to Balance: Crack Your Mind, Body, Spirit Code to Transform Your Health."

If you're frustrated by a Western approach to health and disease, Back to Balance offers the holistic solution you've been searching for.
