What is this Allergological Asthma Resort?
Most of Pakistan’s natural and mineral resources come through a state owned organization known as “Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation” (PMDC). The organization purpose is to contribute and expand mineral development activities in Pakistan. Allergological Asthma Resort in early 2013 is basically built by “Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation” (PMDC), by resort it really stands for its meaning relaxation, tourism and attracting visitors, although the basic purpose of the Allergological Asthma Resort is to help people suffering from asthma and are not able to get properly cured from it or are unable to feel some sort of relief from their current treatment.
How the Allergological Asthma Resort was made?
Khewra Mine consists of many salt mountains, from which natural salt gets excavated, from one of those mountains Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation (PMDC) has stopped excavating the natural salt, but the mountain has a very large empty place which can is called huge hall. Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation (PMDC) have built six rooms in the empty place of the huge hall by picking off the salt bricks on the walls, every wall is basically a double wall, and are apart from each other with a feet gap, and tube lights are placed in the gaps, every room has two beds. After two to three steps walk is another empty hall which is a sitting place, where visitors can sit on sofas or can watch television.
Diagnosis method and treatment at Allergological Asthma Resort:
A doctor is always available at Allergological Asthma Resort, his duty is to diagnose whether the visitor is affected with asthma or not, if asthma is diagnosed then the visitor is admitted as a patient for ten days, and is charged with a very affordable fees of 8000 to 10000 Pakistani Rupees. All the patient has to do is to spent time in the salt environment; no other charges are billed for medicines or injections etc. By spending time in the natural salt environment the patient himself feels that the asthma issues are getting solved.
