By invitation of the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in Bethesda, MD, Dr. Arthur Fan (Fan Ying) recently lectured more than 20 medical doctors and clinical fellows on current progress, scientific studies, and clinical effectiveness evaluation in the treatment of movement disorders, especially Parkinson’s Disease, with acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

As part of his Jan. 29, 2007 lecture on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) main campus, Dr. Fan showed videos demonstrating the beneficial effects of TCM on Meige’s syndrome (a dystonia) and Huntington’s disease as well as Parkinson’s. After the lecture, Dr. Fan answered questions regarding the placement of acupuncture needles in the body and scalp, the differences between manual and electric acupuncture, and the safety of using traditional Chinese herbology in neurological patients.

“In the treatment of movement disorders, which often diminish patients’ quality of life and are difficult to heal with Western medicine, TCM may dramatically improve patients’ lives by decreasing clinical symptoms in some cases,” says Dr. Fan. “For example, after acupuncture, the stiffness and shaking of extremities caused by Parkinson’s will often stop for many days. Also, TCM, including herbology and acupuncture, can improve patients’ sleeping and stabilize their emotions.”

Dr. Fan holds the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) certificate in Oriental Medicine, which comprises Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology and Asian Bodywork. This little-held certificate reflects his expertise in the use of Chinese herbs and therapeutic massage, as well as acupuncture, in the authentic practice of Chinese medicine.

Dr. Fan’s clinical practice is continually enhanced by his evidence-based research in TCM. In China he conducted research in his medical specialty areas under grants from the Chinese Nature Science Foundation. In the United States he has been an active scientific researcher in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) under federal National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants. For the University of Maryland medical school, Dr. Fan is currently a consultant for the scientific study of TCM.

As an internationally noted TCM research scholar, he is also a CAM reviewing expert for several well-known medical publication houses including Elsevier and World Scientific. The recipient of several important awards from the Chinese government, Dr. Fan has been the subject of coverage by the international news agency Reuters Health.

 Migraine personality” confirmed in China

 NEW YORK, Nov 26 — Some people with migraine really do have a “migraine personality,” according to doctors from the Peoples Republic of China.

Those people are more likely to be hypochondriacs, depressed, hysterical or schizophrenic, the researchers say in a recent issue of the journal Headache. Dr. Arthur Yin Fan, of Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Pharmacy, and colleagues used a standard questionnaire to assess the personalities of 23 Chinese migraine patients before and after treatment. These subjects were compared with 30 healthy volunteers.

Before treatment, migraine patients had higher levels of hypochondria, depression, hysteria and schizophrenia than the healthy people, the Chinese doctors found.

After treatment, signs of hysteria and schizophrenia were remarkably reduced, the researchers note. But after treatment, some migraine patients were less able to “deal with stress and psychological pressure.” They were also more prone “to depression and pessimism, and extraordinary concern about their health.”

Fan’s group suggests that these characteristics could hinder migraine treatment in the long term. To counter this, they recommend that psychological treatment should be added to standard migraine management.

The concept of a “migraine personality” has been controversial among headache experts. Some experts point out that conditions such as hypochondria and depression may simply be the result of severe, chronic pain.
