Dr. Ernesto Medina

In 2012 he graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA and went straight into clinical practice. He is currently a member of the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation, and the Kharrazian Institute where he continues to stay up to date with the latest research and clinical applications in functional medicine and clinical neuroscience to better serve his patients.

The intention of this book is to provide powerful wisdom, tips, and insights around stepping more into your power and purpose and becoming more empowered in your life, health, business, and career. This book will become a powerful resource to those looking to learn and grow around empowerment and the remarkable courage it takes to start on the empowerment path.
