"The MindBody Code has impacted my own work and life, and I know that it can also profoundly impact yours. You don't need to stay caged in a life of culturally approved 'known misery' that keeps you from experiencing a lifetime of wonder, health, and joy. You have within you the power to reinvent yourself at any age or stage--no matter what your circumstances. The roadmap is right here in these pages." --From the foreword by Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Wisdom of Menopause and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "This book is that of a masterful mind-body guide, whose breadth and depth are truly admirable. Mario Martinez is a great teacher who knows how to translate complex subject matter into poetic, inviting language. The result for the reader is a gentle unfolding of self-discovery that is life-changing." --Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters "Martinez's book gives new meaning to the saying, 'Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you.' In fact, he shows us that words can cause illness. By putting his wisdom into action, we can transform the unhealthy, culturally-based language we mindlessly learned into a mindful, biosymbolic language to bring about health and vitality. Others have written about the power of the mind to create health. The MindBody Code successfully goes one step further by incorporating the profound effect culture has on our well-being. If you're interested in becoming or remaining healthy, read this book." --Ellen Langer, PhD, Harvard psychology professor and author of Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility
