  1. Treating childhood asthma in Singapore : when West meets East.

    Article - En anglais

    Though Western medicines and ideas about asthma have become popular in many Asian nations, local beliefs about treatment prevail.

    The multiracial society of Singapore shows a variety of beliefs about causes of asthma attacks (for example, the balance of yin and yang) and types of treatment-herbal remedies, inhaled versus eaten medicines, the influence of Ramadan.

    Many of the cultural practices mentioned are probably preserved among south east Asian minorities residing in the United Kingdom.
