Dr. Mario Martinez

Dr. Mario Martinez will teach during the Wisdom and Wellbeing Weeks 2023 from February 4 -11, 2023 at Blue Spirit about the following topics:

Terrains of Meaning: Exploring the Domain of MindBody and How it Contributes to Healthy Longevity.

Clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Mario Martinez lectures worldwide on how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity. He is the founder of biocognitive science, a new paradigm that investigates the causes of health and the learning of illnesses in cultural contexts. But more than healthy longevity, Martinez teaches how cultivating selfhood improves relationships, and finds the existential meaning that enhances the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. He is the bestselling author of The MindBody Code: How to Change the Beliefs That Limit Your Health, Longevity, and Success.

In his biocognitive model, Mario identifies complex pathways showing how our cultural beliefs affect our immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, and translates them to create practical applications. He is the preeminent proponent of cultural psychoneuroimmunology, and has published numerous articles on the “causes of health” based on his research with healthy centenarians on five different continents.

More 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. Mario is the imminent proponent of cultural psychoneuroimmunology. 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.
