In Balance Health Coaches announces its grand opening of two office locations in Langhorne and Doylestown.
In Balance’s founder and director, Gina Forgione, is a certified health and wellness coach, certified nutritionist and graduate of the renowned Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), in New York City, as well as a member of the International Association of Health Coaches. Forgione was in the medical field for 17 years before pursuing her passion for functional, integrative wellness.
Forgione’s philosophy of nutrition focuses on a person’s unique “primary plate”—the relationship between food, stress, career, relationships, exercise and spirituality. “If things aren’t organized on that plate, the diet will never succeed,” she explains, adding, “Bioindividuality is also a factor.” In addition to assisting with weight loss, Forgione helps people with diabetes, kidney and renal conditions, lymphatic issues and candida, among others.
“It’s a nice, gentle way of making lifestyle change,” says Forgione of her three-,six- and nine-month programs. “We gradually introduce clean-eating food choices that will crowd out poorer food choices. We are careful not to spook people with too much change too fast.” She also offers elimination diets for people experiencing high levels of inflammation.
To celebrate the grand opening, clients who sign up before April 30 will receive $100 off of the core program fee.
Locations: Wood Lane Professional Centre, 1262 Wood Ln., Ste. 206, Langhorne, and Park Terrace, 275 Main St., Ste. 10, Doylestown. For more information, call 267-767-3973, email InBalanceHealthCoaches2@gmail.com or visit InBalanceHealthCoaches.com. See ad, page 35.

This 7,700-square-foot “Wellness Castle” is a comprehensive wellness center, offering yoga and barre, Reiki, therapeutic massage, facials, fitness bootcamps and on-site psychotherapy.
Dr. Wendy Warner, owner of Medicine in Balance, has started a healthy living food group for people that are interested in learning to eat more healthfully, as well as to build a community of like-minded eaters. The free potluck is held from 7 to 9 p.m., the first Tuesday of every month, in the Medicine in Balance office, in Langhorne. Each meeting comprises the sharing of food and recipes, along with a discussion centered on healthy eating topics. Past subjects include gluten-free eating, making fermented foods, and the health benefits of chocolate and tea. The health benefits of Mediterranean diets will be discussed in July.
