~ THE CREATOR & FOUNDER OF KETO-TO-GO LLC. ~
Original Creator, Recipe and The Original-brand-new-products creator; and now, The Owner of “KETO-TO-GO LLC.” Iris is also the initial tester of the “KETO-TO-GO” life-style recipes and will never include any recipe that she has not tried and lived on herself first. Even though her ultimate goal is to become 100% Vegan, she has (even with dairy allergies and sensitivities) tried and “lived on” every single item that is being promoted by KETO-TO-GO
Iris has a Master’s Degree from the Juilliard School of Music, is a composer, a writer and an inventor. Iris created the extremely popular event planning and entertainment company IGMC in 1989. During IGMC productions, Iris has worked on more than a hundred million dollars of corporate and social catered events. She is very familiar with all aspects of producing events and production in general and is a dynamo coordinator. (You can learn more about IGMC here: http://www.igmc.net.)
Iris created “KETO-TO-GO” when she became ill with no results-oriented help from a number of doctors. Iris found that The Ketogenic Diet was her solution. She also came to learn that doing this diet properly can become an all-encompassing and full time job. Iris could NOT find one 4:1 Ketogenic Food option in any store or on line, nothing, anywhere! In addition, Iris accidentally (at first) created some imaginative new food options and combinations that were more than just tolerable, they were exceptionally yummy. Iris shared her Keto Yummies with friends who started demanding repeat meals. It is out of the deepest desire to be of service and lessen suffering in others wanting to try the Ketogenic Lifestyle that KETO-TO-GO was created.
Iris’ personal passion and motivation ~ Iris’ Dad died a horrible death from Pancreatic Cancer and pro-actively Iris believes that The Ketogenic Diet will reduce her chances of following in his footsteps since the studies by The Ketopet Sanctuary and Epigenix Foundation with healing dogs with Cancer has been so promising and even more promising the most recent medically supervised treatments of high-stage Cancer Patients in Turkey that had “miraculous” results of both remissions and improvements previously unseen within the medical community. (Look up: Dr. Abdul Kadir Slocum from the ChemoThermia Oncology Center in Turkey and their six year observations of advanced Cancer patients using Ketogenic Diets as part of their treatment schedules.) It is because of this and her belief that The Ketogenic Diet is prevention for her, that she has dived with passion into creating, building and sharing the KETO-TO-GO experience of truly yummy food combinations that make sticking to a Ketogenic Diet both easy and something to look forward to!
Iris’ continuing role with KETO-TO-GO is to be continually improving menu items and designing new food combinations, interacting with Doctors and Dieticians to continually be improving and advancing a health oriented objective to all participants and staying on top of the latest health findings to incorporate into the Yummies that KETO-TO-GO cooks up and makes available. Iris looks forward to more advice from Medical Professionals to continue to improve and be the food sources that Ketogenic Dieters turn to for their sustenance.
Iris not only taste tests all products that come out of the kitchen, but she lives on them as well to test viability in staying in Ketosis while using the products and also testing how they feel in the body. No product gets released from KETO-TO-GO without first being in the company owner's regular diet for a period of time.

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 over 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.
