Dr. Leslie Kasanoff is a Chiropractor and Health Advocate who has dedicated her life to inspiring and assisting people in attaining health & wellness. She says ‘Health is like growth and life; we are always moving in one direction or the other; growing and getting healthier or shrinking and dying.’ Dr. Leslie’s commitment is to assist as many people as possible in moving toward health, wellness and growth in all dimensions; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and even financially throughout life.
A lifetime learner herself, Dr. Leslie began her career as a Medical Laboratory Technologist. But when she found herself assisting in the bone marrow biopsy of a frail elderly woman whose care plan would ultimately not be changed based on the results of this invasive procedure, she realized her life was destined to be committed to restoring true health through natural means; not increasing longevity at the expense of well-being which was what she often found in the hospital setting. Shortly after that, she quit her job in a Boston hospital and explored the Western United States by bicycle for over 3 months before eventually settling on the Central Coast. After a period of exploration and learning about many different philosophies in health, her decision to become a chiropractor brought her to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. After six years in Portland, receiving her Doctorate of Chiropractic and having her first child, she relocated back to the Central Coast with her family to start a practice in 1991.
Dr. Leslie maintained a private chiropractic practice for about 20 years and then for a variety of reasons, both personal and professional closed her office in 2011. She continued to see some of her long-standing patients in their homes while simultaneously inspiring others nutritionally through her Juice Plus+ Virtual Franchise.
In 2014, while continuing to grow her Juice Plus+ business, she accepted a chiropractic position at Community Health Centers of the Central Coast where she provides care primarily to Medicare and MediCAL/CenCAL recipients. Dr. Leslie finds great satisfaction in working with this population who are predominantly low income and many of whom are also disabled and/or indigent.
Dr. Leslie’s greatest desire has always been that our children have the opportunity to grow up healthy. As she has grown older herself, she’s also become increasingly aware of the suffering of middle-aged and older women often from health ailments that could be very easily reversed with appropriate knowledge and guidance; guidance that most people are not getting in the current medical model of care. She often incorporates nutritional consulting and coaching, exercise and lifestyle recommendations and more in both her practice at Community Health Centers and with her Juice Plus+ clients.
Dr. Leslie does guest speaking at schools and in other venues throughout California’s Central Coast. She is available to speak to groups throughout the West Coast as her schedule allows. Her basic talk “How to Live to 100 and Not Regret It” is a dynamic presentation that will teach your audience simple concepts to allow them to live 10 healthier years.
Dr. Leslie lives in with her family Los Osos, CA; the place she calls her “sleepy little beach town without New England winters” in reference to Hull, Ma where she grew up. She enjoys bicycling, hiking and long walks with Missy, The 3legged Wonderdog of Los Osos. (you can also like Missy The 3Legged Wonderdog on Facebook!)
