Rejuvenaging with Dr. Ron Kaiser
Accumulating the Most Powerful Form of Wealth with Fernando Flores
When he was 12, Fernando Flores got hit by a car that broke his femur, forcing him to deal with a screw through his knee for 29 days in a hospital. After that, he spent another seven weeks flat in bed with a cast from his stomach to the ankle. During that time, Fernando cherished movement, and he decided to make health and wellness part of his identity.
However, pursuing his dream of becoming an attorney, Fernando stopped taking care of his health and well-being. After several loved ones died from heart conditions, he decided to get back on track and take care of his health, the most powerful form of wealth.
