Don Brown’s juicing experiment was initiated by Ashley Brown and Sami Ansari. Neither have a medical background and it was repeatedly discouraged by Don’s Doctor’s and Specialists to incorporate juicing into his diet. Ignoring their advice, Don is now back to the health he had after 30 days of juicing.
Don Brown landed himself in the hospital for 2 weeks, having been diagnosed with high blood pressure, which then spiraled into a lupus like disease, or chronic kidney disease (the Doctor’s didn’t know) with the potential for dialysis for the rest of his life. Don raised a stubborn daughter, who flew to his bedside and began learning and questioning the doctors. With 40 lbs of “water weight” or edema, badly bruised up arms and blood transfusions in the works, his daughter soon took his health into her own hands. After juicing for 30 days Don is on a new journey of life and health. He is currently 77 years old living the retired life in Oregon with his partner Yvonne and his big dog Beau on a beautiful ranch.
Ashley Brown is Don Brown’s daughter. She took matters into her own hands when she discovered her father was prescribed with over 17 medications by top doctors in Washington State. The doctors had admitted to not knowing the cause of health problems and had a grim outlook full of dialysis, chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure for the rest of his life. With the support of her friend Sami Ansari, she embarked on a journey of juicing and health in a crazy prescription based world with her father. Ashley does answer e-mails, questions and is always happy to help guide or motivate when necessary: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sami Ansari Don and Sami are very close and when the news and chaos surrounding the hospitals and medication was revealing itself, he knew that it was time to make a change. Sami was not only a major part of the juicing and healing process, he also gave the utmost support for Ashley while she went through an emotionally distressful time watching her dad struggle with his health.
Note from Sami, Ashley and Don:
This blog was created because we want you to know that you are not alone. You are not the only person or family struggling through discouraging doctors visits, tests, medications, and disappointing results. We have been there and we are cheering you on. We took a risk in most people’s eyes. We challenged authority and went against it. We did the opposite of what we were told. We encourage you to ask questions and do your research – lots of it!! Check the labels about side effects and do the reading. Follow your instincts and your gut. And by all means… start juicing for health!
TIP: If you’re ever in a bind and don’t know what juice to use for an ailment (arthritis, liver etc.).. by all means just Google… “Juicing for ___” to get some results!!! That’s exactly where we started.
