Explores the various ways of treating asthma. Christopher Lai (Specialist in Respiratory Medicine) considers that steroids are the best cure. Chui Shui-hon (Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner) and homeopathic practitioners are concerned about the side effects of steroids as well as the over-prescription of antibiotics to asthma patients, especially children. It is suggested that a combination of tailor-made treatments, including the use of both western medicine and other kinds of scientifically tested therapeutic measures, could be the best method to cure the disease.
