I don’t mean to insult anyone here, but Alkaline Ionized Water (AIW) is having enough trouble taking off in the market and the last thing it needs is to be mischaracterized and explained in a confusing way.
In an interview with Ethen Carrell, “World Renowned Water Expert” Ronnie Ruiz is asked “What is alkaline ionized water?”
World Renowned Water Expert: “It was a water processer essentially. It sends electrical charges through the water and gives the water more alkaline, which can reduce the chances of getting some diseases. Of course no one can be completely unsusceptible to diseases, but there are steps people can take to prevent obtaining diseases.”
Heh? Could I get an interpreter please? I’m not exactly sure what that sentence even means. Perhaps I can offer some clarification. Although AIW is quite complicated in regard to its mechanics and chemistry, it is created by a simple process that is easy to understand. AIW is electronically enhanced water created through electrolysis. It is produced by running normal tap water over negative (cathode) and positive (anode) electrodes, which ionizes the minerals in the water creating positive (hydrogen) and negative (hydroxyl) ions. The magic comes when the membranes separate the hydrogen and hydroxyl ions, thus creating alkaline and acidic water. These two waters are always produced simultaneously during the ionization process.
FYI Ronnie, unsusceptible is NOT a word. It’s ironic that you used it in a sentence that barely touches upon the rules of the English language and therefore is almost incomprehensible. If you’re trying to explain AIW to someone who has never heard of it that probably is not the sentence you want to use if you don’t want them to laugh at you.
Ruiz offers other gleaming gems of health wisdom regarding AIW in the interview: “The evidence is evident in other countries that this water can reduce migraines, shrink your risk of getting cancer, make you healthier, and reduce your chances of getting diseases.” This is redundancy with a side dish of repetitiveness. It seems to suggest that AIW works in some countries, but not in others, but I’m sure Ronnie didn’t mean that. Or did he? There are many more of these gems in the interview, but you get the idea.
Carrell asks Ruiz at the end of the interview if he has ever “considered writing a book about the topic of ionized water?” My question is, will it have more incoherent sentences such as the ones found in this interview? If it does Ronnie, you might want to rethink your answer of “Yes undoubtedly.”
Besides, such a book has already been written and I am the one who wrote it: The Miraculous Properties Of Ionized Water – The Definitive Guide To The World’s Healthiest Substance (also available in Spanish). I’ve written 5 books on health (with a 6th coming out soon) and The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water is in its 3rd Edition and is, by far, my bestselling book. I would be happy to send Ronnie a copy so he could learn how to explain to others why they need to consume the healthiest substance known, AIW, and how it is actually created.
I have written about AIW since 1996. I blog about it all the time, coherently I might add. I think Alkaline Ionized Water one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen in my life, as significant as the first moonwalk and the invention of the personal computer. All my health books have featured it and I have proudly stood behind it when it was attacked by Dr. Mercola (Mercola seems to know nothing about water, the most important substance required by the body) while others have maligned AIW without offering evidence. Many have tried to debunk it for years, unsuccessfully in part because of people like myself and many others, including Ronnie, who stand behind it. Kudos for that Ronnie. We refuse to be bullied by whatever “interests” there are of those who want to squash widespread introduction to the public of the world’s healthiest water and most important element required by the body.
Back to Ronnie’s book that he’s currently writing. Is there a working title at this point? How about The Dummy’s Guide to Understanding Ionized Water For Those Who Don’t Really Want to Understand It. I vow to be the first person in line to buy Ronnie’s book on AIW when it comes out. I’m really looking forward to it. I just can’t wait to quote from it. 🙂
