Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Suggesting the Use of All Natural Sun Protectants

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, draws attention to healthy alternatives to manufactured sun protection products.

NEW YORK, NY – June 10, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website offering holistic alternatives to the aluminum-heavy sunscreen products on the shelves today. Dr. Veronica explains her stance in her blog, titled “Screen Yourself: Holistic Sun Protection.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “You can almost always have too much of a good thing. For example, fun in the sun isn’t so delightful when you’ve been scorched. This is one of the many times when we should all do what our mothers always instructed, and apply sunscreen. But, you don’t always have to purchase the same old bottles of manufactured, milky white cream with an SPF label on it. In today’s eco-friendly, organic-oriented marketplace, we can protect or skin with more holistic methods.”

“No, I’m not talking about the most obvious holistic sun protection (staying inside your house). I’m referring to natural oils that will protect your skin without the synthetic ingredients… Some holistic alternatives for sun protection include extra virgin coconut oil and avocado oil. Some skin healing agents include shea butter that’s unrefined and unprocessed. Cocoa butter is another alternative, and it’s a great moisturizer,” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
