The Jeffrey Van Dyk Show | Episode 31

How your culture and your wounds correlate directly to your immune response, with Jeffrey Van Dyk & Dr. Mario Martinez

I’ve spent my professional career pioneering the relationship between core wounds and marketing, but this interview with Dr. Mario Martinez was one I didn’t see coming! He has pioneered the direct link between your emotional wounds and your immune response, with credible research evidence to back it up. He’s a true visionary who blew my mind with his research and the emotional “antidotes” to negative immune responses in the body. This is a truly original pioneer and a conversation that will completely engross you!

The Jeffrey Van Dyk Show

by Dr. Mario Martinez | How your culture and your wounds correlate directly to your immune response

Guest Bio

Dr. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity. He proposes, based on credible 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 can do interviews on Zoom, or live when he is lecturing in your city.

He 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 also explains why our immune system is not just a protector. Instead, it responds to the cultural premises we learn to perceive the world.
