ode23, too slow

It takes a long time to solve the code. Is it because the code is reading data from a.dat file? How can I make it go faster? It slows down even more as time increases and the time step gets smaller.

I also suspect that you have a stiff system and should try ode23s

Reading the files in each iteration is a very time-consuming method. Do this once only and store the values in a persistent variable:
function [du] = mart(t,u)
persistent Fyr FyrPi Fzr FzrPi Mxr MxrPi f
if isempty(Fyr)
Fyr = load('fz_F_i_recon.dat');
FyrPi = importdata('fz_Phi.txt');
Fzr = load('fy_F_i_recon.dat');
FzrPi = load('fy_Phi_i_recon.dat');
Mxr = load('mx_F_i_recon.dat');
MxrPi = load('mx_Phi_i_recon.dat');
f = load('frequency.dat');
Do not include all import commands in [ and ]. [] is Matlab's operator for a concatenation of arrays. With [load('file')] you concatenate the output of load() with nothing, so this is a waste of time only.
Save time by creating constants as constants: 77e9 is cheap, 77*10^9 is an expensive power operation.
There is no reason to create the same variables in a loop repeatedly:
for j=1:4
c(1)=60;c(2)=180;c(3)=150;c(4)=100; % Why?! Move it behind the loop

Do this once only and store the values in a persistent variable:
Alternately load them outside mart.m entirely and pass them into the mart function (which is the ODE function for the system, I assume; I have not looked at all the files) as extra parameters.
