While there are so many voices in the world right now that would seek to offer advice and instructions about our health, there are few that provide a consistent balance of ‘head and heart.’ Your Health Forum remedies that problem.

I was fortunate to find Dr. Cirino’s movement fairly early on during the pandemic and was undeniably impressed with his multifaceted approach to health, healing and well-being. From his blog posts to his books, it was immediately apparent that he offered a level of unparalleled care along with incredibly valuable content. As a busy working woman who is largely in charge of care for my mother, my daughter and myself, I was drawn to the broad appeal of Dr. Cirino’s topics across various circumstances, health situations and life stages. Perhaps most of all I love how brilliant yet accessible the material is much like the man himself. Dr. Cirino is a treasure and a wonderful resource who offers decades of training, knowledge and experience to those who are fortunate to find him as I was and he does so with that profoundly impactful balance of ‘head and heart.’ With Gratitude, Zoe P.
