You know that your mind influences your health-but what's influencing your mind? Unless you answer this question, teaches Dr. Mario Martinez, you may be missing a key component on the journey to health and personal excellence.
In The Mind-Body Code, the founder of Biocognitive Theory presents his first audio curriculum about the dynamic interplay between our thoughts, our bodies and our cultural history-and how to unlock this powerful doorway to wellness and fulfillment.

This book is fantastic. A theory of psychology and mind-body connection supported by scientific research. I have done the exercises many times and it's amazing what I have discovered about myself. I am sure this book will bring health to many.
I use parts of this cd to help with fibro pain and ptsd. He has one of the best explanations of fibro and a good meditation to start breaking up the knot of emotions that keep us in pain. His segment on Stigmata and Fibro is very helpful and the meditation goes right to the heart of problems. I wish there were separate tracks for the actual meditations, however, as I can never find them when I am looking. I suppose bookmarking helps.I would like to have easier ways to find the experiential stuff, as I dont need to keep hearing the explanations.Sometimes his voice grates on me and i dont agree with all he says, but its well worth a try at the meditations if you are dealing with chronic pain.
Thanks to Mario Martinez, the author! This book is a FRESH LOOK at realizing the whole self, and is not to be missed if you value your health. Narrated by the author in a very gentle, understanding, and healing way. My wife and I both rate this tops!

This book is not for those already well-versed in Mind/Body Medicine. In fact, it is probably not the best resource for professionals OR lay people beginning their journey into understanding and practicing it's theory. Mostly, Mr. Martinez's ideas are a restatement of Bioenergetics from the early 1970's. His explanations of "portals" of emotions is an oversimplification of Chakra theory which is better described by a myriad of teachers and authors in other resources. Much of his explanation of the interaction between mind and body is vague and difficult to follow.
I did appreciate his casual style and I like that he narrates his own book. However, my preference for books available on Audible for Mind/Body medicine and practices would be Radical Acceptance and Meditation and Psychotherapy by Tara Brach; Mindfulness by Ellen Langer; The Mindful Brain by Daniel Siegal; and Stress-Proofing Your Brain by Rick Hansen.
I am quite sure that Dr. Martinez's clients benefit from his understanding and "hands-on" guidance. However, for the "reader," the entree into this rich and abundant field might best be found elsewhere.
I love Audible. I think Mario Martinez's Audiobook "Mind-Body Code" is my overall favorite so far.
Mario Martinez has and amazing voice and also the most complete description of forgiveness I've ever heard.
He explains how to integrate forgiveness into ones life with usable stories and real tools.
I've never quite heard the concept of true forgiveness explained this way anywhere else.
I highly recommend listening to all 6 CD's "in order". I found that they really helped me to explain to myself and other what "forgiveness is not" and with my christian background it added a whole new dimension to my understanding.
Basically he uses the first 5 audio series to build up to the last CD on the actual topic of forgiveness.
Very well laid out.
Thank you Dr Mario Martinez.
Loved it and will continue to love it!
The meditations are wonderfully simple and would be great for lay people that are not used to meditating....I only wish that Mario conducted an oline course for people interested in studying his unique teachings....all of this CD resonated with me and I will keep an eye out for any other recordings he may put out there :)
Dr Martinez narrates his own work and just listening to his soothing, compassionate voice is a pleasure in itself. The ideas he is narrating work on a level I have never come across before and are remarkably effective.
At last, a scientific understanding of the mind-body connection that is not New Age in any way. Martinez's techniques are infinitely more effective than any visualization exercise I had tried in the past and I finally have closure on issues I had been working on for years. Hooray!
Thanks for this body of work Dr Martinez. I hope many others will find relief in their lives as the result of this audio book.
Mario Martinez delivers his material on bio-cognitive theory which upon reflection may give the listener a chance to unravel some of the blocks negatively impacting their lives. His voice is most pleasant and his style mixes science with anecdotes, history and mythology. Very entertaining and more importantly most helpful in learning to live with more ease and joy. Practical applications are given in each section. I have listened through many, many times and always come away with something I did not hear the time before...rich and satisfying. More please......
Great audiobook explaining the connection between our body and its performance and our emotions... We have the power to heal we just need to believe in it. This book its a start
A deeply wise and wonderful exploration of our mind and body and
how we are able to access our deeper wisdom by releasing the beliefs of
culture as well as our own wounds. Highly reccommended
