Among local waters there are analogs of arzini, borjomi, darasun, essentuki. The most known deposits of mineral waters in Kyrgyzstan are Chatir Kel and Kara Shoro.

Natural resources of thermal waters of the Republic are 200l/sec. On the base of 10 deposits work resorts and sanatoriums.
SULPHIDE WATERS. They are found in the south of the Republic mostly near oil and gas deposits. Over 10 outflows have been discovered. The most known are Kara Tube and Kyzyl Jar.

Unique combination of such nature factors as high mountains and high concentration of air ions in spelean mines, stability of microclimate of underground rooms, full absence of pollen allergens, almost complete air sterility (3-5 microbes per 1m3). Air temperature in the spelean mines is +8 - +10°C all year around. Effectiveness of the atopic asthma treatment reaches 97%, by infective-dependable form - 67-78%.
At the same time there are some precautions for the treatment in the spelean sanitarium: tuberculosis (any form), glomerulonephritis, oncology, brucellosis, rheumatism (rheumatic heart disease, polyarthritis), hypertonia 2-3 phase (renal especially), diabetes.
