What is bamboo salt?
A Korean Oriental doctor named Kim Il hoon (1909~1992, the picture of below) is the man who discovered the process of bamboo salt. The exact method of bamboo salt production can be found in the book that he published “The Universe and the God’s Medicine.” He spent most of his time discovering and acquiring enough knowledge on how to manufacture bamboo salt by using sun dried salt, bamboo, clay, and pine trees.
Making bamboo salt is a very time-consuming method that requires high technology therefore, the process is extremely complicated.
First, we fill each bamboo trunks with solar salt and securely seal the open ends with clay. Afterwards, the trunks will be put inside the iron kiln because the procedure requires prolonged exposure to heat by burning pine trees. The burning process lasts for 8-15 hours until the salt pillar remains. These salt pillars will be ground into powder. Then, the powdered salt pillars will be put in bamboo trunks and have to undergo with another burning method. This is done continuously (until 8th times) in order to achieve the standard concoction. During the 9th burning process, a much higher temperature (1,300 degrees Celsius) is needed until the salt inside melt like lava. Let the melted salt cool down into bowls until the concoction hardens like stone. This is how we create bamboo salt.
Repetitive procedure is typically processed to remove salt impurities and at the same time to maximize the extraction of good minerals from the bamboo, clay and pine tree wood. Il-hoon Kim discovered that bamboo salt gained higher medical effectiveness if it was exposed to heat for such a long period of time.
Oriental doctors have been using it to treat numerous types of diseases for such a long time, such as gum disease, bronchitis, gastritis, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and other types of ailment.
