Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Fighting For Healthy Foods in Local Grocery Stores

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, offers her perspective following the release of a new study by the Stanford School of Medicine showing weight-loss benefits spread to family members of bariatric surgery patients.

NEW YORK, NY – October 29, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website, that supports the idea corroborated through a recent Stanford School of Medicine study suggesting that the influence on family members of someone engaging in weight-loss and improved health is fairly substantial.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Regardless of whether it is through surgery, multiple trips to the gym or being on a strict diet of all things green and raw – the bottom line is this:  if you are among others who value their personal wellbeing, you will likely end up doing or continue to do the same. No matter what measure one takes to improve oneself, the proof is clear – there will be an impact on others around them.  This concept goes hand-in-hand with much of what I tend to preach about life and living.  We should stay in healthy relationships, we should value our bodies, we need to place a great amount of emphasis on eating right and moving often and if we find ourselves in situations where we are slacking – it is our duty to get right back on track.

“People should remain among those who provide the most positive health influences.  In my practice of social media medicine there have been countless cases of women who are in relationships with men who do not want to join them in their fitness endeavors.  There are also plenty of men who struggle with maintaining their physical and mental health only to be blocked by the negative influence of their partner.  Parents have an even greater responsibility to provide their children with an atmosphere that fosters strong and healthy habits of portion control, regular exercise and self-worth,” says 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.
