DR. MARIO MARTINEZ
Dr. Mario Martinez is a licensed US clinical psychologist who is the founder of Biocognitive Science. He is the bestselling author of the book The Mind Body Code: How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your health, Longevity, and Success (Sounds True); the learning series CD The Mind Body Code: How the Mind Wounds and Heals the Body (Sounds True); The MindBody Self: How Longevity is Culturally Learned and the Causes of Health Are Inherited (Hay House). Additionally, he has published numerous articles in professional journals and books. He lectures worldwide on his research and theory of biocognition. He offers a model of mind and body inseparable from their cultural history that constantly seek contextual meaning to sustain wellness. Biocognition takes discoveries from the neuroscience of healthy brains, the psychoneuroimmunology of exalted emotions, and embodied cultural anthropology, and translates them to practical applications in the areas of self-valuation, leadership, relationships, wellness, and longevity. He has researched centenarians in five continents and has identified the cultural components of their longevity. His research with centenarians (worldwide) suggests that, rather than genetics, their healthy longevity is mostly due to their cultural beliefs.
