The Magaziner Center for Wellness has the Philadelphia region’s most experienced and highly trained physicians specializing in nutrition and alternative medicine.
Dr. Allan Magaziner is known among patients and colleagues as a compassionate physician with a keen interest in treating chronic diseases and immune disorders with natural, nontoxic techniques that keep the whole body in balance.
One of the nation’s leading authorities on nutrition, preventive medicine and environmental illness, Dr. Magaziner established the Magaziner Center for Wellness just shy of 25 years ago and presently serves as the Center’s director.
He has lectured extensively to physicians and the public both in the 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) for two years. Dr. Magaziner continues to be widely quoted in national medical and consumer-oriented press outlets, and presently appears weekly on the Thursday “HealthTalk” segment of Fox 29 News in Philadelphia.
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. Dr. Magaziner’s expertise in treating chronic pain resulting from injuries and arthritis is just one reason he is hailed as one of the Foundation’s most esteemed clinical instructors.
Traditional Cancer Treatment (Pre Medical Cannabis)
We started United Patients Group in 2011 because of my father-in-law’s diagnosis of Stage 4 lung cancer with METS to the brain (brain tumor on the brain stem). He was given 2 weeks to live.
I remember that day as if it was yesterday. Stan went from a healthy 77 year old man enjoying retirement to the wasting stages of this horrible cell malfunction. Our hearts dropped. He was put on full time oxygen; he couldn’t drive, let alone walk. It was a scary time for our family. We didn’t know what to do.
We attended his next oncology appointment to find out what the future had for Stan and our family.
Wheeling him up with oxygen tanks toting along, we were now sitting in the room waiting for his oncologist to enter. She did and we asked the dreaded question, “How much time do we have?” She, Stan’s oncologist, looked at us and at Stan and answered, “2 weeks.” Tears filled our eyes. We asked, “There has to be something?” Her answer was, “morphine.”
Stan was never in pain, so he declined morphine. As we sat there in shock and sadness, I asked his oncologist, “It’s in the news daily…what about cannabis and cancer? She mentioned that she didn’t know much about it, but at this late of a stage, she would let us try anything.
They deemed my wife, Corinne, his caregiver. We went into panic education mode the moment we left that office. Where do we start??? How do we become a legal patient? Where do we get this medicine? We were hoping for a miracle.
At first, all we wanted Stan to do was eat since research states that 40% of cancer patients die of complications brought on by malnutrition before they die of the cancer they are fighting. Our outcome was surprisingly better than that.
Introduction of Medical Cannabis
We administered Stan with cannabis (both raw and heated) capsules infused with coconut oil. Not only did he eat, but within 24 hours he was at his computer sending emails. A week later, Stan was shuffling around the house from room to room. At one point he shared with us that, “something is happening.”
This was incredible news to our ears. With this information, we delved deeper into research, which led us to a high THC regiment (low dose) of cannabis oil. In our research we discovered that THC can and does send cancerous cells into apoptosis (self-suicide). Continuing with this regimen, I am proud to say that 10 + years later, my father-in-law is ALIVE and his charts still state, NO EVIDENCE OF RECURRENT DISEASE. These five words are what started my wife and me on this journey to help others who are fighting for their lives or a loved one’s life.
