Intravenous vitamin sessions on the rise

PHOENIX — Hollywood A-listers are hopping on the liquid bandwagon.

Singer Rihanna recently tweeted a picture of herself hooked up to an IV. She called it “party-girl drip.”

Rihanna is one of many celebrities flocking to health and wellness centers, paying hundreds of dollars for intravenous vitamin and mineral therapy sessions.

“I really believe in them,” said Deb Budnick, a nurse at Dreambody Medical Center in Scottsdale. “I’ve seen patients do complete turnarounds as far as their health goes.”

The vitamin cocktail mixture is typically comprised of B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium, among other nutrients.

According to experts in the field, in addition to a boost to the immune system and energy levels, the treatments promote greater health and enhance the healing process in acute and chronic problems.
