My Favorite Things

Solar and Water


Consultations
Most people contact me for consultations.  Basically, we sit and talk about you, and how you want to improve your health.  Most schedule weekly consultations until their goals are met, while others meet with me when they have time.  Still others opt for a phone consultation, so as to fit it into their busy schedules.  Whatever you prefer, I'm flexible and I want to help.

Supplements
I do recommend several different general supplements for overall health and can also suggest very specific supplements based on one's personal health.

My Favorite Things
This page is just a few of my favorite things that I highly recommend to everyone.

Solar and Water
Because I'm so passionate about health, promoting a healthy environment is right in line with all that I do.  We've recently found a way to help others get Solar power on their homes for free, and save on their electrical bill, with no upfront fees.  Or if you are interested in buying a solar panel system for your home, we can help there too.  Just contact us for more information whenever you want.

We also have been able to develop a relationship with a company that can provide alkaline filtered water from your tap, and also install high end water filtration systems for your entire home.  Again, just let us know if your interested and we will help you in every way we can.
 
 
Testimonial / Referral

   "Before seeing Dr. Griffin I only believed in Western medicine and not in any type of alternative medicine or special diets.  In my forties my health declined and no matter what I did, I could not stay healthy.  I was in the hospital every year for 7 years straight, due to bouts of depression, breathing problems, and diverticulitis.  Each bout of diverticulitis resulted in a hospital stay of 4 to 6 days and I also had to have a bowel resection. 

  The worst came in 2008 when I suffered from a GI bleed and ended up in the hospital for 10 days, requiring several blood transfusions.  Having many medical issues throughout my life and requiring 11 medications pushed me to a point in my life where I decided I needed to make some changes in order to live a long and HEATHLY life.   My sister and brother-in law were also concerned about my health and were pushing me to find alternative methods to regain my health. 

  My brother-in-law held a health-focused seminar in the Santa Clarita Valley, during which he introduced me to two amazing women: Jennie Moran from JensRawTruth and Dr. Griffin.  After setting up appointments to meet with both Jennie and Dr. Griffin, I found that both women could help me and they both wanted to get me healthy without the use of medications, but instead, through education, nutrition and regular visits with Dr. Griffin for chiropractic adjustments.  

  I have been seeing both Jennie and Dr. Griffin for 5 months and I feel like a poster child for both of these amazing women.  I no longer take medications for depression, allergies or asthma. To date, I have eliminated 6 of the 11 medications that I was taking.  I haven’t been in the hospital for 16 months and amazingly, I haven’t been sick at all since I have started seeing Jennie and Dr. Griffin. 

  I feel like a new woman with a renewed outlook on life.  Now people are telling me I look good and they want to know what changed.  All I can do is praise Jennie and Dr. Griffin, because without their concern for my health and setting me up on a plan to get me back to healthier and drug-free life, I’d probably have been back in the hospital by now.   Dr. Griffin, I can’t thank you enough for showing me how nutrition and chiropractic treatments can restore one’s health. I am living proof! I feel amazing!

"The ‘Raw Truth’
About Food"

Jennie Moran teaches clients how to improve their health by changing their diet to include raw foods.

Meals with Jennie Chester Moran are raw affairs. Literally. At a cooking class held March 25, the owner of "Jen's Raw Truth" showed students how to make everything from soup to brownies without the use of a stove or oven. Instead, Chester Moran used her trusty Vitamix and dehydrator to avoid raising temperatures above 115 degrees, the point at which many raw diet proponents believe food's inherent nutritional properties are destroyed. The results were decidedly positive among the 18 students.

"It was so far out of my comfort zone, but it was a lot better than I thought it would be," said Alexis Cissell of Palmdale.

The reaction pleased Moran, a certified Hippocrates Health Institute health educator. "What you eat can have a powerful impact on whether you live long and well and it is my intention to help my clients realize that it's possible with raw foods," she said. "Food should take little time to prepare and be as nutritious as possible."

During her 90-minute "Party in the Kitchen" class at the Canyon Country chiropractic office of Dr. Carolyn Griffin, Chester Moran ran through the health benefits of each recipe. She tossed handfuls of spinach and romaine lettuce into the Vitamix, along with stevia, lime, lemon, agave nectar and filtered water for the smoothie, which blended into a brilliant emerald green.

"You get iron and folic acid from the spinach and fiber from the romaine, which is also very relaxing to the body. This is a great alkalizer for the body, which will keep your PH balanced, so it's a fantastic thing to drink first thing in the morning. It'll give you energy throughout the day," Chester Moran said.

Chester Moran, a former actress who also works at in the marketing department at Whole Foods Valencia, was a vegetarian at a young age, but turned to raw food after a health crisis. She and her sister had visited Peru and drank a local corn beer that left her with a parasitic condition. Ignoring the warning signs until she literally turned green and developed painful boils, Chester Moran was eventually diagnosed with toxoplasmosis.

When traditional medicine failed to keep her symptoms under control, Chester Moran turned to a naturopath who referred her to the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Fla. Often called "the father of medicine," Hippocrates believed people should "let food be our medicine." Chester Moran signed up for a four-month course that relieved her condition and changed the course of her life forever.

"I loved being an actress, but found I didn't have the passion for it that I did with raw food," Chester Moran said. "It was a light at the end of the tunnel. I made a pact with myself that by healing myself, I would show others how they could do the same."

Now Chester Moran, who maintains an 80 percent raw diet, shares her passion with clients during individual consultations that range from nutritional analyses to shopping trips, as well as popular "There's a Party in My Kitchen" classes held at a host's home.

For $30 per person, with a minimum of six people, Chester Moran offers raw food variations of tasty cuisine from across the globe - Italian lasagna, Mexican burritos, even all-American "burgers." Recipes and instruction are included during the two-hour class.

She envisions recipes during the day and perfects them in her well-equipped kitchen at night, often waking up her husband at 3 a.m. to share her latest creation. Ultimately, Chester Moran strives to be the Rachael Ray of raw foods.

"These recipes are definitely 30 minutes or less and they're so easy," she said. "Also, when it's hot in the kitchen or you're tired and don't want to cook, you can make a healthy, easy-to-digest meal in no time and with no heat."

One such recipe is the carrot avocado soup - a cold, creamy concoction that blended carrot juice, avocado, fresh ginger, cilantro, green onions, olive oil and an all-natural version of soy sauce called nama shoyu.

According to Chester Moran, the soup is an excellent way to improve the immune system, eyesight, and overall health. She seasoned it with dulse flakes, a healthy alternative to table salt and served with tasty flax crackers.

While she makes her own flax crackers as well as fruit roll-ups in a dehydrator, Chester Moran recommended Ezekiel breads and wraps for those without the technology.

"They're a sprouted grain and have more life force than regular breads," she said. "Cooking takes out the nutrients. Raw food and live grains lock in enzymes."

When one thinks of raw foods, salads certainly spring to mind.

Chester Moran's version exchanged traditional greens for kale - she then "massaged" in olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and salt and pepper to coat the hearty leaves.

Next, dried cranberries and diced tomatoes were added.

"I took this to a baby shower and it disappeared within an hour," Chester Moran told the audience.

All attendees appeared to enjoy the salad, while the more adventurous sampled rehydrated sea vegetables cut into ribbons and seasoned with nothing more than dulse flakes.

"I like it all," said Sarah Outlaw, Saugus resident and founder of the Holistic Moms Network. "I try to eat foods as close to their natural state as possible, with no processing. I wouldn't say I'm a raw foodie, but I definitely incorporate raw food into my family's diet."

Chester Moran said the way to get people to try raw foods is by targeting their sweet tooth, which she has successfully done over the years with "Jen's Guiltless Brownies."

The recipe combined soaked and dehydrated walnuts, pitted dates, raw carob or cacao powder, cranberries, stevia and Mila, a seed-based superfood supplement that's high in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber and phytonutrients.

After the ingredients are finely ground in a food processor, the mixture is transferred to a brownie pan, chilled for an hour or more and cut into squares.

"You can get all your Omega-3 in a brownie. How fun is that?" Chester Moran asked.

A Little About Jen... 


   After dabbling with the idea of being a vegetarian in my teens, it wasn't until much later that I took the step into embracing raw foods.  Since then, I have never felt better in my life.  For years, I had been eating the SAD diet, the Standard American Diet, until I met a friend of my mom's.  I was in awe of her radiant glow and beautiful complexion and had to learn her secret.  Come to find out she was committed to being a vegetarian and ate a majority of raw foods.  Quite simply, she vowed never to put another hamburger or piece of steak on her plate again.

  Though the humane reasons are significant, my primary reason for becoming a vegetarian was more for the health issues.  I wanted to feel better and have more energy and focus.  I also worked as a model and actress, yet I suffered from chronic acne for most of my adult life.  Between the stress of my career and the environmental pollutants I encountered by living in Los Angeles, I knew I had to do something.  After trying various medications, facials, peels, homeopathy, acupuncture, and herbs, I finally stumbled into the world of raw living foods.  In short, they changed my life.             

  Driven by the desire to not just help others, but help myself, I knew it was time for me to take action and become my own "doctor." That is when I discovered the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida.  There I became a certified health educator and nutrition consultant.  Since moving back to Los Angeles, I’ve dedicated my life to uncovering the raw truth about how to eat healthy. 

  My passion is to spread these truths to as many people as I can and to help others and their families to live happier and healthier lives.  My hope is that you will find the same kind of enjoyment and energy from raw foods as I have.  My favorite person in the whole world is my sister Annie.  I am also very close to my mom and dad.  The best is sharing a laugh with the love of my life, my husband Johnny and our two beautiful children. 

  We’re not going to take drastic measures, but try and improve your eating habits a little each day, a little each week.  Combine this new healthy approach to food along with a little exercise, and you have the recipe for looking great.  Put your trust in me and I promise to help you change your life, even if we have to take one small step at a time.
