Bamboo salt is made using sea salt(solar salt) from the Yellow Sea coast of Korea. To make bamboo salt, first, you cut joints of bamboo and put the solar salt in them, and then seal the entrance with clay.
Second, you file them in an iron kiln, and bake them with pine tree wood fire. As a result, the bamboo is incinerated into ashes and a white salt pillar remains. You break the salt pillar into shatters, and repeat the second process 8 times and in the 9th time, using resin as a material, you melt the salt into liquid by heating it at 1,300 degrees celcius.
When the liquid cools off, it hardens like a rock. This is bamboo salt and we can intake it in the form of power or grains. You can use it when you cook food or eat the grains dissolving it with your saliva.
This processing method of salt was invented by Kim, Il-hoon(1909~1992). The method of producing bamboo salt was widely known to the public as his book 'The Universe and the God's Medicine' was published. In 1986, 'The God's Medicine(Shinyak)' was published and the industrialization of bamboo salt began.
Mr. Kim Il-hoon recommended that people take bamboo salt several times or dozens of times by dissolving it with saliva for the purpose of health promotion, and adult and chronic disease treatment.
His theory was that organisms with more salt containment are more resistant to diseases, which was the opposite of Western medical interpretations of the physiological effects of sodium chloride. He also presented the salt-intake methods, which were exactly the opposite of the common sense method of eating salt.
A lot of people who read Mr. Kim's books 'the God's Medicine' and 'Medical Herbs, the God's Medicine(Shinyakboncho)' started using bamboo salt for their health and treatment of diseases, and for decades, bamboo salt has been widely beloved by a lot of people who want to stay healthy and cure their diseases
Salt is-and always has been-essential for optimal health. The human body is made up of 72% water that contains 0.9% salt. We need salt and minerals to survive. It's no wonder why, when admitted in hospital, you are usually given an IV(Intravenous Injection), which feeds saline solution quickly into your body. So, the question is not, "Should I be eating salt?" but rather, "What kind of salt should I be eating?" Because of the impurities and lack of trace minerals in salt, other kinds of salt are not good for your health.
A 2006 study published in The American Journal of Medicine, tells us that "sodium intake of less than 2300mg(the daily recommended allowance) was associated with a 37% increase in cardiovascular disease mortality and a 28% increase of all-cause mortality."
In other words, people who consume too little salt are more likely to die than other people.
The human body is made up of 72% salt water. Think about what is in an IV.
Salt is essential for life.
"After many years of salt being bad-mouthed by health professionals and their media, the importance of salt as a dietary supplement is once again being acknowledged and recognized." - Dr. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
