Dr. Allan Magaziner
One of the nation’s leading authorities on nutrition, preventive medicine and environmental illness, Dr. Allan Magaziner established the Magaziner Center for Wellness nearly 30 years ago and presently serves as the Center’s medical director. He is known among patients and colleagues as a compassionate physician and healer who emphasizes empathy and sympathy while truly listening to his patients.
Dr. Magaziner has a keen interest in treating chronic diseases including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, hormone dysregulation, gastrointestinal problems, learning disabilities, allergies, chronic pain syndromes, and immune disorders with natural, nontoxic techniques that keep the whole body in balance.
During his earlier years, he was fortunate enough to complete fellowship programs under the auspices of internationally acclaimed physicians, Dr. Jonathan Wright of the Tahoma Clinic in Seattle, WA and Dr. William Rea of the Environmental Health Center in Dallas, TX where he obtained expertise in clinical therapeutic nutrition, preventive medicine, and environmental medicine, allergy and toxicology.
Dr. Magaziner has been treating hormonal imbalances with bio-identical hormones his entire career and has often been cited in many of the popular health books by actress and author, Suzanne Somers. Dr. Magaziner has also spent many years studying innovative cancer breakthroughs from all over the globe, and brings this knowledge and experience to the Magaziner Center’s holistic Cancer Support Program.
He has lectured extensively to physicians and the public both in the United States and abroad on health and nutrition-related topics. His engaging personality, coupled with his wealth of knowledge, made him the ideal host of his own radio program “Health Line with Dr. Allan Magaziner” which aired on WPHT 1210 AM (Philadelphia) and he could be seen weekly on the “HealthTalk” segment of Fox 29 News in Philadelphia. He continues to be widely quoted in national medical and consumer-oriented press outlets.
Dr. Magaziner’s contributions extend beyond state and national borders. In March 2007, Dr. Magaziner completed his second medical mission in Honduras, where he helped treat hundreds of chronic pain patients with the use of prolotherapy under the auspices of the Hackett-Hemwall Foundation where he gained expertise in treating chronic pain resulting from injuries and arthritis.
Dr. Magaziner is the author of four top-selling books, including The All-Natural Cardio Cure: A Drug-Free Cholesterol and Cardiac Inflammation Reduction Program (2004), Chemical Free Kids: Safeguarding Your Child’s Diet and Environment (2003), Total Health Handbook: Your Complete Wellness Resource (2000) and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Living Longer and Healthier (1999) which have guided thousands of readers toward a healhier lifestyle.
A graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Magaziner also completed a Fellowship in Allergy and Environmental Medicine and postgraduate training in Clinical Nutrition and Preventive Medicine. He is a former president of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and has been a member of their Board of Advisors/Directors since 1994.
The Magaziner Center often conducts clinical research trials, which has led Dr. Magaziner to be selected as an investigator of the NIH-approved Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT). The results of this landmark study were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). He is certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Practice and the American Board of Environmental Medicine, is a Certified Nutrition Specialist and holds advanced proficiency training in chelation therapy and hyperbaric medicine.
Dr. Magaziner first became interested in nutrition and preventive medicine in his early teenage years when his mother’s health problems were greatly benefitted with a non-pharmacologic, holistic approach. She then opened a health food store where he worked and gained experience during his high school and college years. His interest in the field grew as he later attended medical school and noted that patients were simply being treated with drugs to cover up symptoms instead of investigating and treating the triggers and causes of their disease. This change in paradigm led Dr. Magaziner to open the Magaziner Center for Wellness which has since become a national and international resource for wellness.
He resides in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, with his wife and three children. When he is not treating patients, he enjoys all sports especially basketball, baseball, football, cycling, boating and writing.
