The All-Salt process harvests two popular commodities, sea salt and recycled pharmaceuticals from water treatment plants, to produce one fine medicinal product: a cure-all salt for every condition, hand harvested and sun dried for purity.
Inhabitants of San Jose have long harvested sea salt from the San Francisco Bay's ocean waters. Today, Bay waters are fed by more than ocean tides and freshwater streams. Sewage piped from urban Bay Area communities to water pollution control plants along the Bay's edges drains into the bay. Wastewater treatment plants filter out most toxic contaminants, but not the pharmaceuticals that many of us flush down our toilets - anything from antibiotics to antidepressants that are not completely absorbed by our bodies. Valuable drug compounds make it through treatment intact and collect in Bay saltwater, where they are available to be re-harvested and re-used.
Medicinal All-Salt products are for sale now! And, research and instructions on how to understand and make use of the bounty of the yet-unregulated pharmaceutical disposal industry available at All Salt
