Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) -- There is a famous radon hot spring in Onjong-ri of Songchon County, South Phyongan Province of the DPRK.

This spa, called Songchon Hot Spring, contains 27 mineral matters, including radon, sodium, magnesium and potassium and the content of mineral matters is 360.50 mg per liter.

As radon accounts for an overwhelming proportion, the spring is very efficacious for arteriosclerosis, arthrosis, neuralgia, aftereffect of trauma and operation, gynecopathy, hypertension, chronic dermatitis and eczema.

In this regard, Kim Chang Sik, section chief of the Songchon Onjong Sanatorium under Pyongyang University of Medicine Hospital, told KCNA:

The spa's radon content is 2.5 times higher than Jongdal Hot Spring in Samchon County.

Any patient can recover his health over 90 percent at this spa.

In recent years the sanatorium has presented more than 10 essays and invented tens of kinds of treatment apparatuses.

Its development is associated with the undying feats of the peerlessly great men.

President Kim Il Sung visited Onjong-ri in May Juche 37 (1948) and acquainted himself with the annual yield of hot spring and its temperature. Then he instructed to build a holiday camp and a sanatorium in the area for the working citizens.

On November 1, 1967, Chairman Kim Jong Il said that the spa in Onjong-ri is one of the country's famous mineral springs and instructed to spruce up the sanatorium associated with warm love of the President for the people.

Now the sanatorium has turned into a cure with a comprehensive clinic, tens of sickrooms and different kinds of physio-treatment equipment. -0-
