The journey of self-discovery can often seem very focused on a single point, just us an individual. But, without looking at the bigger picture of where we got most of our beliefs and values from misses the picture. My guest today has a very intriguing and unique perspective on how longevity is culturally learned.
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. 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.
Today we'll unpack what biocognitive science is and do a deep dive into his most recent book, The MindBody Self: How Longevity is Culturally Learned and the Causes of Health are Inherited.

My guest today was tested in the way no parent every wants to be or thinks they will.
Mo Gawdat is the Chief Business Officer at Google’s [X]. At Google, his team is responsible for exploring “moonshot” dreams like the much-lauded self-driving car and providing global internet access by using sub-orbital balloons. For being at the top of a "dream team" though, Mo realized in 2001 that he was miserably unhappy and spirits were far from sailing above the clouds. So he did the one thing he knew how to do better than anything: he put his engineering experience to work and, by using data and research, he created an algorithm and “solved” happiness.
Thirteen years later, Mo’s algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden, senseless death of his son Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation which saved them from depths of despair. With a new sense of purpose and a drive to honor his son's memory, he began the #10MillionHappy Mission designed to make at least that many people realize that happiness is within their control.
Today we'll dive into the framework behind Solve for Happy and so much more.

I’m constantly on the lookout for new and interesting approaches to health and healing. This medicine is much more traditional, and is starting to make it's way into the western world. I'm yet to personally experiment with Kambo medicine, and I invited Simon Scott on the show today to chat about this peculiar frog venom.
Simon Scott grew up in England and studied Computer Science to Masters level. He moved to Asia in his mid-twenties to work in Post Production and was there for 5 years, Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong. After being headhunted to the States to work in a Hollywood design company he won an Emmy for his work and used that as a catalyst to become an American citizen. After a decade of working for leading Hollywood film post-production companies Simon started Mac Guff, and boutique post-production company in Santa Monica CA. For five years Simon and his team produced many award winning TV Commercials for leading brands such as Hummer, Acura, DeBeers and Panasonic. It was during this time that Simon became stressed, overworked and had a hard time dealing with the riggers of running his company.
After much soul-seeking, he decided to leave his career to find something more personally rewarding, something closer to his heart. Simon sought out answers in South America, in Colombia where he worked with Kambo Medicine and also drank the medicinal brew Ayahuasca over 50 times. It was during this period that he realized his deep desires to facilitate healing for others. As this desire grew stronger, people showed up for healing and Simon steadily grew a solid reputation as a practitioner of Kambo. Simon has worked with Kambo now for 7 years and has been proving the Kambo medicine to others for over 5 years.
He has worked with 1000’s of people from all over the world and has a perfect safety record with the Kambo medicine. Simon is the creator of the website KamboCleanse.com, which is an authority on the Kambo medicine and which helps people to research Kambo before deciding to work with it. Simon currently lives in Sedona Arizona where he facilitates Kambo ceremonies.
