BLOOM New Year Detox
Our successful detox is designed to be easily achievable and allows everyone to feel the benefits of an inner-cleanse.
Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, led by international nutritionist Ursula Peer the 3 day detox is the perfect way to assist a transition from an unhealthy diet to a healthy one.
Feel these benefits
Eliminate toxins from your system, which means losing weight and or allowing your stomach to reduce to normal size
Improve vitality and energy levels right away

Feel enhanced mental clarity
Get to know better eating habits
People with heart problems may notice a more regular heartbeat, diabetes parameters may improve, joints may feel less stressed and more flexible etc.
