Hi! My name is Rob Thomas and I live north of Toronto, Canada.
My wife introduced me to ionized water in the summer of 2008. At that time, I was in significant pain with osteo-arthritis and I had been taking medication for acid reflux for 7 years. My physician had told me that I would be on medications for both problems for the rest of my life. One day my wife came home with a jug of ionized water and told me she thought she could fix my arthritis and acid reflux. I wasn’t particularly enthused about her idea. However, marriage being what it is, I drank the water as I thought it would be better than her serving me something green! I would have given 1,000 to 1 odds that the water would be a waste of time and money. Imagine my surprise when my acid reflux disappeared in a week and my arthritis reduced by over 95% in three weeks.
I actually started selling alkaline water ionizers and was very successful at it (selling 450 machines in a 14 month period). When I found out that the company that I was selling for was using deceptive advertising and the owner didn’t believe in the water at all other than as a way to make money, I left the company and started this blog.
I spent thousands of hours researching and writing about alkaline water.
It wasn’t until 2013 when I was introduced to Tyler LeBaron, a young American scientist that I learned that the entire alkaline water story was a myth with no backing from the scientific or the medical communities. During the 100+ hours of education and training that I received from Tyler, I learned that all of the benefits falsely attributed to alkaline water were due to the molecular hydrogen created during electrolysis.
I hope you enjoy the articles that I have written. Please feel free to ask questions or comment. I respond to all comments that are not obviously self-serving or blatantly stupid.
