Dr Mario Martinez -- Do Cultural Beliefs Impact Your Health?
Clinical neuropsychologist and founder of Biocognitive science, Dr. Mario Martinez, lectures worldwide on how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity more than genetics. His research demonstrates how thoughts and their biological expression coemerge within a cultural history, even as current science continues to divide mind and body, and ignore the influence cultural contexts have on the process of health, illness, and aging. Cultures that view growing older as positive are associated with increased wisdom and have higher numbers of centenarians living healthier lives than cultures that view aging as a process of inevitable deterioration. He also teaches how joy requires sufficient self-esteem to accept it without self-sabotage. He is the author of "The MindBody Code." Learn more about his field of “biocognition” in today’s interview.
