The speaker this month, MaryAnn Shearer, Certified Colon Hydro Therapist, who will discuss journey into health and nutrition that began in 1976. She quit eating red meat and began by being a vegetarian. Her alternative lifestyle including studying herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies (as well as learning to make tinctures), radionics, acupuncture, aroma therapy and any other area that was nonconventional. In 2007, she became a Certified Colon Therapist. She has worked for several Naturopathic Doctors, Homeopathic Doctors, and a Holistic Dentist (yes doing colonics). Currently she has a private practice in the East Valley and also works at An Oasis of Healing, an alternative cancer center in Mesa. She will be teaching colon hydro therapy internationally in places such as Thailand & Singapore. MaryAnn has a passion to assist others to be healthy and maintain a toxin free lifestyle.
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.
