Body Intelligence: A New Paradigm

Are you walking through life relying on rational thinking and half-baked ideas as our guide? You have been blessed with much more than just a brain. You have body intelligence.

Are you in touch with your “body-mind” function?

The Nautilus Award winning book Body Intelligence: A New Paradigm
is a clear and refreshing book that may help you get out of the old rut of thinking only with your brain.

But, isn’t that what our brains are for? “Not so!” says Dr. Mayfield.

Dr. Mayfield has cracked the code on the mysteries of how the body and mind (actually a body-mind) function together. It is as if they are one organ rather than two separate parts of our body.

Embrace a new old paradigm in self-awareness and thought.

Dr. John L.Mayfield’s work published in his book Body Intelligence: A New Paradigm is the winner of the prestigious Nautilus Book Award in Body, Mind, Spirit.

In this rare video interview Dr. Mayfield discusses in depth:

  • his “body-mind code”
  • how he cracked the code
  • And why he felt compelled to share the code with the world in his book.

“Body Intelligence will help us get out of the old rut of thinking only with our brain.”

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with over 3000 years of experience has remained one of the many fascinating areas in ancient Chinese culture. It is believed to have been practiced as early as 475 to 221 BC and documented in the Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Medicine.

Elements theory is used to interpret the relationship between the physiology and pathology of the human body.

Dr. Mayfield explains how the Chinese “five element” physiology is different from western medical physiology and why this knowledge is a key to cracking the body-mind code.

Like Yin Yang theory, and Six Qi theory, Five Element theory is one of the very early, and still one of the very core, concepts of traditional Chinese medicine. The five elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. These five elements are basically a man-made system designed to help us understand natural processes and relationships. Each element has a series of correspondences that guide the practitioner in understanding which relationships are at play.

Dr. Mayfield mixes his extensive research on this ancient knowledge with modern medicine for a new paradigm in complete healing of the mind, body, and soul; “body-mind.” And, in the process, Dr. John Mayfield “cracks the code.”

  1. I’ve been a big mind-body person for a long time. Before I knew about the Chinese 5 Elements, I learn about the work of Dr. John Diamond who worked with the mind-body connection through kinesiology. Also, hypnosis is another way of gaining insight into this relationship for healing. This is important information that we need to continue to get out to the public. Thanks for sharing.

  2. An interesting post, Kathleen, thanks for sharing. In the ancient Ayurveda system we do believe in the interaction of the 5 Elements or Panchvatattva as we call it. Knowing that modern science is now discovering and recognizing what has been known to Eastern ancients!

    • The five elements of Ayurveda are a little different from The classical Chinese five elements of wood (liver & gallbladder), fire (heart and small intestine), earth (stomach, spleen and pancreas), metal (lung and large intestine) and water (kidneys and bladder). Each organ has its principle emotions, like anger for the liver, resentment for the gallbladder and so on.
