Dr. Mario Martinez

Dr. Mario E. Martinez is an internationally recognized clinical neuro-psychologist who is pioneering a new form of healing that he explores in his new book The MindBody Code: How to Change the Beliefs that Limit Your Health, Longevity and Success.

His unique approach, anchored in science, arose because he wanted to know why his patients werent improving. Despite using all the tools employed in traditional treatment techniques, the results left him pondering that there must be something more.

Thus, he embarked on a quest to find the missing element. Early on, he was mentored by George Solomon, UCLA professor of psychiatry, who who invented the term psycho-immunology. Dr. Martinez searched the world for clues--as a scientist, a doctor and a researcher--as to why treatment and relief for so many failed.

But out of his inquiry, in 1998, he developed his theory of Bio-cognitive Science, based on research that demonstrates how thoughts and their biological expression are integrally connected to one's cultural history. Academic science continues to divide mind and body, as well as ignores the influence cultural contexts have on the process of health, illness and aging. But in Dr. Martinez' pioneering work, he integrates research in psycho-neuro-immunology, neuroscience, and cultural anthropology to conceptualize and address the causes of health, the learning of illness, and the biocultural ingredients of longevity. The result is a formula that unlocks The MindBody Codeimproving health, enabling change and even prolonging life.
