Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article: Should the Movie Have Been Titled: Sleepless And Lonely In Seattle?

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, sheds light on a new study that links perceived lack of companionship with fragmented sleep patterns.

NEW YORK, NY – November 14, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, social media medicine expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the REAL World, recently published an article on her website, explaining a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Chicago.  The article, titled “Should the Movie Have Been Titled: Sleepless and Lonely In Seattle?” discusses the study in greater detail and includes ways that this concern of sleeplessness can be prevented.

Dr. Anderson writes, “How can the medical community work to curtail this problem that starts with an emotional stance and ends in a very physical manifestation of this emotional deficit?  The key role that medical professionals have to help their patients avoid and prevent this from happening is to recognize the signs before they get out of hand.  It is no secret how detrimental to health it is when a person suffers from not getting enough good sleep.  The list of ailments is a mile long and it can impact anything from a person’s blood pressure, heart health, fitness and obesity levels and more.”

“Patients should continue to receive a regular stream of information and education about the importance of strong social connections. Additionally, health care practitioners need to pay more attention to their patients’ relationships.  This is especially true when a sleep disorder or malfunction has been brought to a practitioner’s attention.  Prior to prescribing sleep aid medications, professionals should provide their patients with appropriate guidance in order to help them develop a positive sleep-conducive routine and lifestyle,” 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.
