BAMBOO SALT is a nine-time roasted sun-dried salt in bamboo receptacle.
It is a medicinal salt that has a clear effect of cure and prevention for various human diseases such as disorders of the digestive system including gastritis, stomach ulcer, enteritis, and intestinal ulcer, various diseases related to the eyes, nose, mouth and ears such as sinusitis, rhinitis, and eye disorders, adult diseases such as cancer and diabetes, and various other surgical diseases such as baldness, athlete’s foot, eczema, burns and injuries.
BAMBOO SALT originates from a traditional Korean folk remedy. Originally, Korean people had been using fried salt, or one to two time roasted salt in bamboo receptacle as a styptic, antiseptic when they could not digest well or had injuries or material for brushing teeth.
This folk remedy still remains in parts of Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea and the salt is called “salt for salt-cautery” or “medicinal salt.”
The person who developed BAMBOO SALT by getting a hint from the manufacturing method of the salt medicine which had been passed down for many generations and made research and development on this is the folk medicine scientist Kim, Il-hoon (1909-1992), who was known as a skilled doctor who surpassed the old famous Chinese physicians Hau Tuo and Bian Que.
The name “BAMBOO SALT” which did not appear in any old medical book or literature, appeared first in “Universe and God’s Medicine“, which he published in 1981.
