The Body-Mind Self, and the epigenetics of our culturally learned beliefs upon our health and quality of life

Dr. Mario Martinez is a clinical psychologist specializing in psycho-neuroimmunology and anti-aging. For the past couple decades, he has been developing the discipline of cultural psycho-immunology as a mind-body theory that explains how our thoughts and their biological expression co-emerge within a cultural environment and history, which in turn affect our  immune, nervous and endocrine systems. This model is called Cultural Psycho-neuroimmunology. He is the founder of the Biocognitive Science Institute in Montevideo, Uruguay, which is now in Nashville Tennessee, and conducts research, lectures and offers seminars in Biocognitive principles and mind-body techniques. Dr. Martinez was the first to outline a blueprint for a new paradigm on the epigenetic relationship between the cultural beliefs we hold and the quality of our health. His latest  book is “Mind-Body Self: How Longevity is Culturally Learned and the Causes of Health Inherited.”  More about biocognitive mind-body science, workshops and events can be found on the Institute’s website at
