World's Best RAW Food Potluck in Mesa - Red, White, and Blue Edition!

Come and experience the grandeur, the spectacle, the wonder of the world's most succulent and tantalizing foods. You'll discover new and creative dishes, consisting of savory and satisfying flavors, from foodstuffs found only in Nature. Get Real. Have Fun. Enjoy Life. And Living Foods! Hosted by George and Peggy Nungesser.

Socializing begins around 6:30pm - 7pm, and food at about 7pm - 7:30pm. Please be generous and respectful of others by bringing a vegan RAW food dish, or a salad (fruits, veggies, nuts, spices), or a fruit/veggie platter for six (or more) people.

This month's speaker is Dr. Jami Kupperman, who will teach us how to get digestion working optimally so we can keep our colons clean, which is the “bottom” line to good health! (No pun intended J) As a “heads up” - this will give us a month to apply this teaching, since next month, Bernando LaPallo will turn 112, and you know that his #1 piece of advice for longevity is “Keep your colon clean”!!! So we won’t tell anyone if you want to start wising up and preparing now!!!

Jami Kupperman, NMD has been practicing medicine in Arizona since her graduation from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2003. She maintains a general family medicine practice, treating both acute and chronic illness. She has a passion for adolescent and young adult health, providing a medical home for those outgrowing early pediatric care and not yet comfortable with adult care. Services range from routine school physicals, general wellness exams and dietary/nutritional counseling to acne management, digestive issues, puberty and hormonal issues, PCOS, diabetes, mononucleosis, and most things in between. She is a member of the Society for Adolescent Medicine and the Arizona Coalition for Adolescent Health.

In addition to her private practice, Dr. Kupperman is the Medical Director at CARE Partnership, a non-profit community medicine clinic providing general medical care to the uninsured and underinsured. She completed a 1-year fellowship with the Southwest College Research Institute, where much of her work focused on Type 2 diabetes.

Therapies Offered: Botanical Medicine, Diet/Nutrition, Natural Supplementation, IV Nutrient Therapy, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Integrative Medicine

NOTE: The food is usually very good here, and this event typically attracts an older, more of a conservative-type crowd (with the exception of many of our members in attendance, their friends, and a handful of others). There is a speaker each month, and the speaker may 1)be interesting/informative (depending on the listener); 2)he/she (sometimes) may be promoting a healthful or quasi-healthful product/service for purchase; and 3)may also promulgate religious propaganda during the course of any given talk. Some of our (former) members have complained about the content of these lectures, especially (when applicable) the religious overtones of some of them. (And the fact that the VEGphoenix did not warn them, in advance, of the nature of some of the talks...we have no control over the content of them. Nor do we sanction any of the products/services discussed that might be promoted in any of the talks.) If you're sensitive to such things, I suggest you make yourself very scarce at that time. There's always safe refuge somewhere on the property where people gather away from the action.  For more information, see [url=][/url]

    Hi Everyone. Time to get more serious about vegan diet. This sounded like an educational and fun event. Going to see if I can attend some classes also.
