Salt The Misunderstood Mineral
Salt the Misunderstood Mineral
Salt also known as Sodium Chloride, is a mineral essential to life; according to the National Institute of Health. Sodium controls the volume of body fluids; it helps maintain electrolyte balance and is an integral part of proper nerve and muscle functions. People who have high blood pressure (hypertension) are warned to stay away from salt and to follow a low sodium diet. This is good advice if commercialized salt is used.
The chemicals and other toxins that can be found in most commercial salts can be harmful to anyone. Even many sea salt brands are not always safe due to the many toxins found in garbage polluted sea water. Medical reports have warned of over use of salt for years, but a recent medical report in the May 14th 2013 health section of the New York Times titled “No Benefit Seen in Sharp Limits on Salt Diets”; disproves many of the anti-salt theories.
Salt is not bad, it is the type of salt and how it is made that can be harmful. That is why I often write about Bamboo salt, the best salt in the world. Bamboo Salt was developed over 100 years ago by the Great Korean Taoist herbalist and healer Insan Kim. Grand master Insan Kim, developed Bamboo salt using Korean remedies that dated back over thousands of years and a unique formula making use of the Five Elements (water, wood, earth, metal and fire) the foundation of most Taoist healing techniques.
Water (sea-salt) contained in Wood (bamboo) sealed by Earth (pure mineral clay) is confined within Metal (iron furnace) to be transformed into “Insan Bamboo Salt” by yang Fire created by the yin Wood (pine resin). Grand Master Insan, called his healing salt, the “Divine Medicine”. My good friend Taoist Ki master Angie Ahn who runs a Ki Center in L.A. is the American representative of the Insan family.
Thanks to master Ahn who developed the American Insan Bamboo salt website www.mybamboosalt.com these wonderful wellness products are now available in the U.S. Bamboo salt products are the only salt products that I recommend for cooking, detox, and a host of other health benefits. I suggest you visit the site and if you decide to make a purchase use the Harlem Ki Center’s code harlemkiny and you will receive a 15% discount on your purchase. For cooking I use the 1xroased or the 3xroased granules, the more times the salt is roasted the greater the healing power.
The 9x roasted Purple bamboo salt crystal or powder is the most powerful of the line and is truly a Divine Medicine that can be used for address many health issues including Stomach Ulcers, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue, low Immunity, Kidney and Liver problems, Eczema, and many other health issues.
The health benefits of salt have been misunderstood for years, but remember it is not salt but the type of salt that can be harmful. If you would like more information on Bamboo Salt visit the site or call my direct line at the Harlem Ki center at 646 329-6727.
