Metabolic Health Program
February 23-April 3, 2023 


For a fresh start in the new year, empower yourself with science-based, practical tools to take charge of your health. Join Bloom Natural Health’s Metabolic Health Program, a four-week educational program geared to assess your metabolism beyond body weight, reduce the risk of chronic health conditions, and bolster your overall health and wellness.

See a positive shift in your numbers, fitness, and energy as you receive guidance from Bloom’s naturopathic doctors (NDs) and functional nutritionist Lisa Scoma (MS). Build healthy habits with this comprehensive program, which encourages increased exercise and daily movement, and the planning and cooking of meals. By reducing inflammatory food choices, our goal for this program will be to lower blood sugar, cholesterol, and inflammation through balanced, unprocessed, whole food choices that taste delicious and are quick and easy to make.

A study at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill found that 88% of Americans are metabolically unhealthy and carry significant health risks of developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic health conditions. Many of us are unaware of the status of our metabolic health until we develop one of these conditions. By learning more about our metabolic health, we can change our trajectories and activate empowered wellness.
