McHenry County Dental Society held their monthly meeting at Crystal Lake Country Club on September 9, 2014. Guest speaker Shannon Watley, D.O. gave a wellness presentation, discussing nutrition and the benefits of a plant based diet. She believes that in order to find the path to our ideal body weight and desired health destiny, we need to get back to the basics of whole food nutrition, exercise, rest, & hydration. She advises removing toxic chemicals from our home wherever possible and putting practices in place to lift our mood and reduce stress. She recommended the movie “Forks Over Knives”, a movie available on Netflix.
