The weight-loss conversation is pretty loud. A million different products promise you lower
numbers on the scale, or to help you eat less food, or crave less sugar. Rarely, if ever, do these
products and promises mention the “f” word: fat. That’s because off-the-shelf and fad diets use
only quantitative measurements—weight and inches—to determine your success.

Weight and inches are often used as the primary indicators for success because they are both
easy to achieve and easy to track, but they don’t necessarily equate to healthful goals or
permanent change. Have you ever gone on a diet and worked painstakingly for months to lose
10 pounds only to gain back the weight and then some within a few weeks of going off the diet?
That’s because weight fluctuates based on many factors—what you eat, how much you eat,
allergies, inflammation, hormones, how you sleep, how much you sleep, etc.—and a significant
amount of the weight you lose during a diet may be comprised of water and muscle.
Consequently, for long-term results, you need to keep that water and muscle around.

Why fat loss is more important than your weight?

When most people are trying to lose weight, they have a goal in mind—a thin, lean or muscled
body that looks great in a bathing suit. But that type of body doesn’t happen with weight loss. It
happens with fat loss and muscle gain. Muscle gain and fat loss both require working
out—sorry—and are both hindered by the traditional weight loss method of severely restricting
calories without paying attention to what you actually eat. The two are also mutually inclusive:
the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn and the higher your metabolism. Strict
diets often lead to muscle loss, which consequently causes you to burn fewer calories, and gain
back any that you have lost. And if that’s not enough, the calories that you already burned are
more likely to come back as… fat.

How a healthy metabolism helps you to lose fat and keep it off

In most conversations about weight loss, metabolism is discussed as if it’s a thing you can just
turn off and on. But in reality, metabolism is a process within the body that exists in each and
every cell. It is the process that converts calories to energy for your body to use in keeping you
alive. Your metabolism is always working, even if you’re not. That’s because even when you’re
sleeping, or just sitting on the couch, your body has a lot of work to do behind the scenes to
keep you alive—breathing, brain function, cell and organ repair, blood circulation, and more all
continue even when you’re playing the part of a vegetable. A healthy metabolism ensures that
your body can fight off illness, keep you energized, and allow you to live your life to the fullest.
These same outcomes allow you to exercise, fight off cravings, and generally feel well enough
to embark on a journey to achieve your health goals.

The minerals you need to support a healthy metabolism

Because metabolism is a chemical process in the body, it requires specific nutrients to help
keep it running smoothly and working properly. B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C, in
particular, are critical to the healthy functioning of your metabolism.
B-complex vitamins in particular help your body to metabolize fats, proteins, and
carbohydrates, turning them into energy rather than storing them as fat. When your body is
lacking in B-complex vitamins, you may be more likely to gain weight as fat and have a more
difficult time burning that fat through exercise.
In particular, vitamins B3, or Niacin, and B6, or Pyridoxine, work together with iron to jumpstart
and regulate the production of L-carnitine, an amino that not only supports your body’s ability
to burn fat, but also assists in generating increased muscle mass.
Vitamins B5, or pantothenic acid, works together with calcium, vitamin C, B6, B12, and a variety
of other B-complex vitamins to help your body, and particularly your metabolism, function at
peak performance. In addition, vitamin C helps your body to maintain muscle growth and
structure. It also supports your circulatory system, helping you to remain strong through each
and every workout.
Despite the power of these vitamins to your health goals, it can be difficult to get all of the
nutrients you need through food alone, especially if you are following a special diet to aid in
your goals.

How a weekly IV drip treatment can support your health goals

If you just added a B-complex and Vitamin C powder to your shopping list, you’re not alone.
Most people know what vitamins are and know that they’re easy to purchase at any pharmacy
or grocery store. But oral supplements have a major drawback: they have to compete with each
other and everything else you ingest to get through your digestive system, be metabolized and
become of use to your body. This means that a portion—and in many cases, a significant
portion—of your supplements are lost in the digestive process, excreted out through your
urine. That all adds up to some pretty expensive bathroom breaks.
IV vitamin infusion therapies deliver 100-percent of your vitamins directly into your blood
stream, bypassing the digestive process and making it easier for your body to use more of
these nutrients support your metabolism and your overall health.
HealthIV’s Weight Management vitamin infusion therapy not only includes a complex of eight
B-vitamins and Vitamin C, but also L-carnitine—to help boost muscle mass and decrease fat
mass, methionine inositol choline (MIC)—lipotropic (fat-burning) substances that target fatty
deposits and support your metabolism’s ability to metabolize fat, and IV fluids—to restore
maintain hydration throughout your body.
Give your metabolism the support it needs so it can support your metabolism and your health
goals. Schedule a HealthIV Weight Management IV drip now.

Prior to 2020, “remote” and “tele-” were foreign concepts that applied only loosely to work, education,
and healthcare. Now, remote, tele- and other digital healthcare services are radically—and
positively—changing the way we all access the care we need to live our fullest lives in the new normal.
And those changes are happening in bold and subtle ways.

Access to higher quality care… from anywhere

One of the most significant barriers to accessing quality healthcare is transportation. Without a way to
get to the doctor, nearly four million people in the United States go without medical care each year.
Transportation was a persistent issue as recently as 2019, with less than half of outpatient health
centers and fewer than 33-percent of inpatient hospitals offering any type of remote health services.
Those that did were notably located in highly populated areas with already-stable medical
infrastructure. The unexpected increase in demand for virtual videoconferencing and the subsequent
rise of videoconferencing services from Zoom, Cisco, and other companies in 2020 aided in the rapid
implementation of telehealth around the globe, even in those areas traditionally left unserved. The 2018
expansion of telehealth services coverage for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries also went into effect in
, further increasing the availability of these services. By the end of that year, more than three-quarters
of hospitals
and 90-percent of health centers were offering telehealth on some level, making it easier to
get healthcare whether you have a ride or not.

Increased sphere of influence and broader support network

Most of us take the apps on our phones for granted, not realizing the impact they have on our daily
lives. At the beginning of 2021, there were nearly 54,000 health apps available for download on the
Apple App Store alone. Given world events between 2020 and 2021, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that
the list of the most downloaded apps in America included Amwell—for medical advice and services on
the fly without an appointment, Weight Watchers—for tracking your weight, and Medisafe—for
prescription reminders and instructions on how to take them correctly. Apps like Weight Watchers offer
a little something extra: a network of support for holistic wellness.

More control over your healthcare experiences

If you’ve ever wished for a more personalized healthcare experience that gives you more access to
information and more control over your care, you’re not alone: 75-percent of Americans want that, too.
Digital healthcare has built the foundation for coordinated, personalized healthcare experiences.
HealthIV is developing an app that, once available, will provide curated healthcare experiences by
directly linking patients and all of their healthcare providers together. While not yet available, this
upcoming app has the potential to increase interoperability in healthcare, increasing your total quality
of care.

Increased security for your healthcare data

With each new technological advance, the security advantages of digital healthcare become more
robust, even if they don’t become more noticeable. The introduction of blockchain electronic medical
records (EMRs)
has provided healthcare providers and digital healthcare producers with the much-
needed balance between quality of data and data security. Because blockchain is easily applied and
scaled to medical records databases of any size, it’s both easy to implement and it makes delivery of
medical records both simpler and quicker. What that means for you is that your records and results
arrive earlier, and you don’t have to worry about someone else getting ahold of your information.
From new ways to make and attend doctors’ appointments to finding a weight loss buddy or fitness
on the other side of the globe to accessing test results in real-time on our mobile phones, digital
healthcare has changed everything. While we may not notice quicker delivery of test results or the
slow and steady increase of providers accessible via telehealth services, these changes are already
having a profound effect on the way we live and both our health and healthcare experiences.
Follow HealthIV to get regular updates on the app’s progress and find out how we can help you
achieve your health goals, whatever they may be.

The dreaded hangover. We’ve all been there. Everyone has a hangover cure they swear by. A big greasy breakfast, sleeping all day, carb loading, hydration, you name it. Humans have tried everything to keep last night’s drinking at bay. But what if I were to tell you that there’s a new hangover remedy on the block that promises fast relief from an evening’s drinking?

Well that’s exactly what we’re going to be talking about today. IV therapy is proven to act on hangover symptoms fast. So stay tuned to find out more. In this article we’ll delve into some of our favorite hangover relief tips and tricks and introduce you to the power of IV therapy.

So without further ado, let’s get started.

What causes hangovers?

We all know that hangovers are caused by a heavy night’s drinking. But what is the science behind this, less than pleasant, morning after experience? There are many reasons why drinking has these side effects and alcohol impacts your physical body in numerous ways.

How alcohol effects the body:

Hangover symptom Physical cause
Headaches Alcohol causes your blood vessels to expand
Fatigue, weakness, low mood Alcohol causes your blood sugar to fall
Tummy ache, nausea, vomiting Alcohol increases stomach acid production
Lack of concentration and appetite Alcohol triggers an inflammatory response in the immune system
Tiredness Alcohol prevents deep sleep

Alcoholic drinks also contain ingredients that contribute to hangovers. These ingredients (called congeners) are produced during the fermentation process in alcohol production and often increase the likelihood of an individual developing a hangover and the severity of the hangover itself.

So how can we get a hold on our hangovers once and for all?

Hangover relief tips and tricks

Of course, the number one way to avoid a hangover is to skip the alcohol altogether. But that’s not what we’re here for. In just a moment we’ll be letting you into the best kept secret in hangover treatment, but first let’s discuss some proven hangover relief tips and tricks to get us started.


A heart breakfast is many people’s go-to hangover relief method of choice. A good breakfast will rebalance your blood sugar levels to combat that nausea and dizziness.


Hydration, hydration, hydration. Dehydration will only make your hangover symptoms worse, so drinking lots of water is essential after a night of heavy drinking.


Many people swear by supplements like ginger, ginseng, and borage oil for their anti-hangover powers. Research is lacking in this area, but why not give it a go?


And, of course, that much-needed sleep. Drinking has a negative effect on our sleep quality and exacerbates hangover fatigue, headaches, and mood disturbance. So you’ll need some extra zees.

How to recover from a hangover fast with IV therapy

If you’ve tried all the classic hangover remedies to no avail, I’m here to tell you there’s hope yet. There’s a new hangover cure in town and (let me tell you) it’s kinda’ epic. Home IV infusion is arguably the best quick hangover fix to grace the surface of this earth to date. And here’s why.

The magical trio. Radiant hair, skin, and nails. It’s what everybody wants. We try creams, we try supplements, we try every beauty product on the shelves. But the true secret to healthy skin, hair, and nails, lies within. A healthy body is a healthy complexion. And here’s how to achieve it.

Why IV therapy for skin, hair & nails?

The key to a beautiful outside is a beautiful inside. IV therapy boosts the body with all the essential vitamins, minerals, and hydration it needs. And the benefits are plenty for both mind and body. The key to looking after your external beauty is looking after your general health. It’s time to wave goodbye to brittle nails, coarse hair, and dulled skin. Our Health IV therapy blends essential vitamins and minerals to support a glowing appearance. We’ll combat any deficiencies in your body and allow your glowing beauty to shine through. Expect shiny voluminous hair, strong nails, glowing skin, and enduring radiance.

The magic ingredients

The right combination of vitamins and minerals are key to supporting a healthy outward appearance. Our HealthIV drips contain the perfect blend to bring out your inner glow.

Vitamin B3 & Selenium

Vitamin B3 (otherwise known as niacin) supports against brittle nails and hair loss by improving blood circulation around the scalp. Selenium protects the hair’s outer coating, preventing damage from the everyday elements.

Vitamin B7 & Zinc

Vitamin B7 (otherwise known as Biotin) and Zinc provide a triple whammy, protecting hair, skin, and nails. Biotin has a naturally strengthening effect and promotes hair growth, strength, and overall appearance. If you’ve been struggling with thinning hair, sensitive skin, or brittle nails for some time, you may need a Biotin boost. And our IV drips offer close to 100% absorption straight at the source.


Collagen is responsible for maintaining the health of our body’s tissues and cells. IV therapy promotes collagen production to support overall physical health and appearance.


Hydration is essential for healthy hair, skin, and nails. The body is over 50% water after all. H20 contributes to healthy follicle growth and healthy cells. Staying hydrated is one of the best steps you can take to combat hair loss and dry skin. IV hydration therapy quickly rehydrates the body for instant rejuvenation.

The stress factor

Did you know that stress can impact our looks? It’s true. Hair loss, thinning, dull complexion, fine-lines, and wrinkles, they’re all things that stress can do to your body. But what does IV therapy have to do with this? Reducing stress is one of the best ways to improve your outward appearance and health.

Our IVs contain a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, and intense hydration that will support your physical and mental health, reducing any stress or anxiety you may be feeling.  And to reduce your stress even further, HealthIV delivers personal IV therapy that can be administered from the comfort of your very own home.

With more people now returning to work after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, businesses must now step up to the mark. Robust Covid-19 testing and contact tracing is now essential for maintaining the health and wellbeing of the workforce.

Of course testing and tracing to this scale comes with its logistical challenges. That’s why HealthIV is dedicated to professional ambulatory care services, including mobile Covid-19 testing.

6 Reasons Testing And Tracing Is Important?

In order to maintain a safe and healthy working environment during these unprecedented times, businesses need to put in place measures to protect their employees. Not only is COVID testing a matter of compliance, but it’s important for maintaining employee peace of mind.

Safeguard your business

Setting up a secure testing and tracing protocol for your business will help you act quickly if and when an employee becomes exposed to COVID-19. COVID-19 testing and contact tracing needs to be a formal part of today’s business continuity plans.

Return To Work

Having a clear test and trace protocol in place for your business will accelerate the passage of employees back into the workplace after time working from home. Contact tracing your employees is the safest way to ensure a healthy in-house working environment. Remember asymptomatic employees can still spread the virus. Testing is the best way to mitigate unnecessary risk.

Planning & Prevention

Coronavirus testing and contact tracing gives businesses access to the information they need to act quickly and stop viral spread. A reliable and consistent testing regime ensures that any employee who contracts the virus can be isolated immediately.


Depending on your business location, testing and contact tracing employees is likely to become a matter of general compliance. Many local governments are publishing guidelines for employee screening and testing in the workplace. Have a plan in place for when this happens.

Preparing for the future

If we’ve learned anything over the past year and a half, it’s that the virus is unpredictable. Businesses need to be prepared for a resurgence of the virus at any time. Testing and tracing is invaluable amidst this time of uncertainty.

Get your workplace COVID ready with HealthIV

As an employer, you’ll want to ensure that your workforce can access testing as simply, and easily as possible. At HealthIV we’re passionate about maintaining public health and wellbeing. That’s why we’re offering mobile clinical services with in-office and at home covid test options.

Our qualified staff will administer COVID-19 testing and screening in a location of your choice as part of our care management program. There’s never been a more fitting time to start changing the future of healthcare.

IV therapy has often been labelled as a luxury. But here at HealthIV we believe that the therapeutic health benefits of IV drip therapies should be accessible to all. IV therapy is one of the most efficient and effective ways to nourish and detoxify the body – delivering nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and medications straight to the bloodstream for rapid impact.

What is IV therapy?

When you think about an IV, what comes to mind?

You’re probably imagining a patient in the hospital or celebrities indulging in their own private IV therapy lounges.

But IV therapy is more than just a celebrity fad. Intravenous therapies deliver essential nutrients and medications to the body. When somebody receives a vitamin drip, the healing work can start immediately because IV therapy bypasses the human digestive system and administers these nutrients and medications directly into the bloodstream.

Needless to say, IV drips boast many health benefits beyond the hospital bed or celebrity salon.

Let’s take a look.

Top health benefits associated with IV therapy

IV therapy can benefit anybody’s health. You don’t have to be seriously ill or seriously extravagant to make use of this fantastic treatment option. In fact, IV therapy is a great treatment option for everything from general wellness to sports recovery, hangover treatment, and more.

IV therapy is fast acting and far more effective than oral supplements and medications. That’s because when medications and minerals are administered via an intravenous drip absorption rates increase dramatically. In fact, IV therapy boasts an almost 100% absorption rate. And that means your body can start healing and repairing faster.

7 health benefits of IV therapy

1.  Wellness
