It’s that time of year again where we are back to focusing on our health and being our ‘best’ selves. Though I’ve finally come to realize that this should be a year round interest, it’s taken me some time to get here. It has been with the help of a few awesome people who have gotten me back to caring about ‘me’ and Dr Amauri is one of those people.
I was suffering from major fatigue running two busy businesses and being a single mother, so my chance meeting with Dr Amauri was exactly what I needed. Dr Amauri is kind, smart and thoughtful; the kind of person that even the shyest (me) will open up to. To give you a better picture, within a few questions on our initial intake appointment, I was in tears and it actually felt good. It felt good to be open with someone who I felt really cared. I hugged him when I left.
So what does Dr Amauri do? Well, he’s a naturopathic Dr. with a background in science and a major passion for wellness and is famous in these parts for his IV therapies. He has a clinic in Yorkville called The Yorkville Wellness Clinic. I had been hearing about these therapies from friends in LA and though I wasn’t necessarily interested in what they were using them for (hangovers) I was interested in getting some help with my fatigue and possibly weight loss.
Though I totally fell off the wagon over the holidays, when I was seeing Dr Amauri I felt better than I have felt in a very long time. I was able to sleep better, my skin was glowing and I was losing weight.
I had a little chat with Dr. Amauri about all the magic that he does and wanted to share it with you.
Check it out:
1. What is IV Therapy?

The “Skinny Drip” certainly supports weight loss. The main goal of this drip is to ultimately assist in weight loss by reducing body fat.

All the components of the solution are compounds natural to the body, and generally pose no health risks. These treatments are much safer compared to the common intravenous treatments people know about such as chemotherapy and antibiotics.
