Episode Title: Heal Your MindBody System with Dr. Mario Martinez
In this episode, you’ll learn amazing “fun nuggets” about how you can heal yourself from “archetype” emotional wounds that may be affecting your immune system.
Our guest, Dr. Mario Martinez, will provide a structure for identifying which kind of wound you might carry as well as the “antidote” that will allow you to heal on a holistic level.
We have six “fun nuggets” from the episode:
#1: A book can be a support for other work you do to serve clients (so that you can leverage every hour you spend with a client).
#2: Behavior change requires a new language so that new neural connections can be made in the brain. This new language can be anchored in the body via the emotions/a felt sense.
#3: Neurons that fire together wire together.
#4: Affirmations don't work alone; you must anchor the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the body.
#5: Dr. Martinez has identified three archetypes of wound or
“dampers of becomingness”:
Each of these archetypes or would has physical symptoms and emotions that are correlated in the body:
-abandonment-cold and low immune systems (emotion: isolation)
-shame-hot and inflammation/autoimmune conditions (emotion: embarrassment)
-betrayal-.hot and cardiovascular issues (emotion: anger).
#6: The body cannot “think” its way through the healing process. We cannot heal in the Beta wave state. Dr. Martinez teaches us to put ourselves into a contemplative state (mindfulness/meditation) associated with Theta and Alpha Waves so that we can truly heal the mind-body system.
About Dr. Mario Martinez
Dr. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity. He proposes, based on credible research evidence, that longevity is learned and the causes of health are inherited. He has studied healthy centenarians (100 years or older) worldwide and found that only 20 to 25% can be attributed to genetics - the rest is related to how they live and the cultural beliefs they share. Dr. Martinez can do interviews on Zoom, or live when he is lecturing in your city. He is the author of the bestselling book The MindBody Code: How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your Health, Longevity, and Success that teaches his theory and practice of biocognitive science to the general public. In addition to longevity, he also explains why our immune system is not just a protector. Instead, it responds to the cultural premises we learn to perceive the world.
