Dr. Mario Martinez is a US clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity. He proposes, based on mindbody 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 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 teaches in his latest bestseller, The MindBody Self: How Longevity is Learned and the Causes of Health Are Inherited, why our immune system is not just a protector. Instead, it responds to the cultural premises we learn to perceive the world.


Dates: APRIL 8 – 15, 2018

We know that the mind influences the body, but what seems to be ignored in the life sciences is what influences the mind. Dr. Martinez will explain why culture is what influences the mind.

Hell also show why our cultural beliefs are more powerful than our genetic endowment, and how growing older is merely the passing of time, whereas aging is what we do with our time based on the beliefs we assimilate from our cultures. Rather than being genetically sentenced with family illnesses, we have the capacity to change how our genes express disease as well as the causes of health, based on how our brain learns to culturally perceive the world. Dr. Martinezs theory and practice of mindbody science is based on research that investigates the healthy brains, the exalted emotions (compassion, empathy, love), and the elevated cognitions (honor, admiration, cooperation). As Homo sapiens, our immune system has 150,000 years of accumulated wisdom that has allowed it to evolve from a protector against pathogens to an intelligent interpreter that confirms the cultural beliefs that we choose to engage. Biocognitive science studies the outliers of the normal curve. Conventional science studies averages at the expense of individual differences. Researching outliers provides valuable individual characteristics missed on group research. These individual characteristics help clarify exceptions in prognosis of terminal illnesses, spontaneous healing, individual components of longevity, and much more.

Topics Dr. Martinez will cover include:

  • Gene expression is affected by cultural interpretations. The immune system is more than a protector against pathogens. It confirms the beliefs we choose to endorse. The immune system has morals. The brain interprets the ethical beliefs we learn from our cultures, and transduces them to the immune, endocrine, and nervous system. Bioethics is more than a philosophy of moral conduct. It is literally the biological expression of moral conduct. The causes of health are inherited and expressed based on the culturally determined horizons that limit our beliefs. As modern Homo sapiens we have over 150,00 years of accumulated wisdom of what supports health. Cultures significantly determine how the causes of health or the learning of illness are expressed. How to shift your operating consciousness to learn healthy longevity, and trigger the causes of health, at any age. How illnesses like fibromyalgia and gastrointestinal disorders are learned and how to reverse their effects. Learning anti-aging and aging-reversal techniques as well as rituals of healthy centenarians. Contrary to popular belief, genetic endowment accounts for only 20% to 25% of healthy longevity. The rest is culturally learned.
