PROFILE:Yang Chungui: Striving for Chinese Acupuncture Doctors to enter Swedish medical system and better serve the patients

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, June 9(Greenpost)—The 71st World Health  Assembly was held in Geneva Switzerland during May 21-26. With the invitation of Liu Baoyan, President of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies, Yang Chungui attended the Assembly  as an observer.

Yang Chungui, President of Acupuncture Science Association in Sweden was earlier this year elected as EC Member of the 9th Executive Committee at the 9th General Assembly of World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies(WFAS) for five years.

Green Post has considered to have an exclusive interview with Yang long time ago, but he has always said to wait and see for some time later. Now time is ripe for such an interview with President Yang.

A total of 4000 delegates from 194 member states attended the assembly themed in Health Throughout the Life Course. The Assembly is held in May every year to deliberate the Director General of WHO’ s work report, budget report and accepting new members. At the opening on May 21, the Assembly first discussed the proposal put up forward by the so-called 15 friendly Federal States to invite Taiwan as observer to attend the Assembly and after heated discussion, the Assembly rejected this proposal as a topic to discuss at the Assembly.

The Assembly discussed the theme that everyone should enjoy health protection and health insurance should cover everybody. President Yang Chungui submitted a document on Promoting Swedish Acupuncture Legislation letting more patients enjoy traditional Chinese Medicine Care. The document illustrated that Sweden is a high welfare country. The citizen will get free medical care after they pay 1100 kronor for diagnosis and 2200 for medicine. After that, all the cost will be covered by the government.

Chinese acupuncture has been practising in 183 countries and regions, more and more Swedish patients accepted the Chinese acupuncture and pay by themselves. The patients realized that western medicine has high-tech support, but the system is too divided into many different divisions, patients feel they don’t get holistic diagnosis and treatment. Patients often felt tired, but the physical examination can’t find anything abnormal. Many patients suffer from various pain and depression. Even though they used a lot of medicine, the pain and depression can’t go away easily. There are currently 240 Chinese medicine clinics in Sweden. Every year about 400 thousand people receive treatment of pain and depression by acupuncture. Thus to promote acupuncture legislation will be conducive to most of patients.

Yang Chungui.

Yang Chungui said WFAS pays great attention to the acupuncture development in Sweden by establishing Chinese Acupuncture Education Base in Stockholm in order to strengthen international acupuncture doctors education work, in accordance with the  WFAS’ requirement and implement Swedish National Health and Welfare Committee’s provisions on patients diaries and diagnosis records. If Chinese acupuncture clinics can be on the same track as the Swedish medicare system, no doubt, it will bring much more choices for patients and bring more livelihood for patients. That will give acupuncture more development space in Sweden as well as Nordic countries.

During the Assembly, Yang also exchanged ideas in legislation on acupuncture in Sweden so that the Chinese Acupuncture doctors and their clinics can also enter the Swedish medicare system with Johan Carlsson, Director General of WHO,and Swedish Director General for Public Health Agency. Yang argued that this will be conducive to the  Swedish patients who are suffering from pain and depression. Yang called for support of legislation on acupuncture by Swedish Public Health Agency.

Dr. Yang was born in a family with traditional Chinese medicine. He used to study in Guangming Chinese Medical Institute as an adult student and also be trained biomedicine in Capital Medical University. He loved martial arts as a child and recognized a lot of herbal medicines. As a child, he was interested in acupuncture and tried to do acupuncture on his own hands, arms and legs. Then he tried that on his classmates. When it proved to be useful, he always kept a small acupuncture bag with him. Like many other Chinese men at his age, Yang also joined the People’s Liberation Army for a couple of years. He also loved exercise of Kungfu.

He can exercise Taiji very well  while he practises acupuncture. He would stand with a Taiji gesture. This is not only good for himself as exercise, but also good for patients. Due to “cultural revolution”, he missed a lot of time for studying. Therefore,he chose to work in a hospital as an equipment worker, and he always modestly learnt from experts and made progress day by day. He had access to advanced western medical instrument and got to know about them. This also reminded him of using modern Chinese medical equipment now.

Yang’s Chinese medicine practice includes a lot of elements in traditional Chinese culture. He is very kind and polite to people. He is also modest and understands the patients psychology quickly. He said many patients felt sick but not really physically sick. They are sometimes psychologically sick. To be healthy means you are both physically and mentally healthy. If the doctor can treat the patient with good attitude and introduce Chinese treatment method, it will help the patients to adjust their emotions and alleviate the pain. Sometimes he prescribed food treatment for some patients such as eating dumplings with special fillings and special chicken soup. In ancient China’s Han Dynasty, famous doctor Zhang Zhongjing in central China prescribed to many patients just to eat dumplings for a week and they all recovered very well. In fact those people were sick because of hunger. Yang uses both medicine and needles for treatment while giving good care to the patients.

Yang came to Sweden in 1998 and he registered Kinesisk Hälsovård 1999 and he has devoted himself to the treatment of pain and depression with both  Chinese and western medicine.

Due to their unremitting efforts, the first and second WFSA Belt and Road Acupuncture Summit were held on August 27, 2016 and November 25, 2017 respectively.

Over 100 delegates from China, the United States, Sweden and other European countries gathered together in Stockholm to discuss acupuncture techniques with several different methods. They also conducted voluntary treatment during the summit. His association also conducted international acupuncture proficiency test and issued certificates.

In March 2017, the first group of acupuncture doctors won their proficiency certificates. On April 21, 2018, the second group of international acupuncture doctors won their proficiency certificates. Yang said that to better conduct diagnosis and treatment and improve their treatment level according to the disease, Chinese acupuncture doctors should set up diagnosis report in combination with Chinese and western way so that the patients can get a treatment with both east and west method.

As one of the most popular methods to treat patients, Acupuncture was approved by Swedish Health sector in 1984. It was also approved to treat many diseases except pain as long as they have clinic experiences. But many patients have to pay themselves to see Chinese doctors because the private clinic has not been accepted by the Swedish medical system. Chinese acupuncture doctors cannot work in the Swedish medical system due to language and other reasons. Thus a lot of experienced Chinese doctors can only work in private clinics. Many patients gave up treatment due to short of money. Thus we hope Chinese medicine can also be included in the Swedish medical care system so that more patients can benefit from it. Acupuncture science Association in Sweden led by Yang is striving for this goal.

Yang’s efforts have won commend from colleagues. Doctor Li Jian told reporter that as long as you seriously work for members, it will have result. Dr. Yang has been working so hard but didn’t calculate his contribution.

In 2017 acupuncture summit, President Yang announced that Swedish Chinese Medicine Acupuncture Education Base was established. It was also announced that the international acupuncture doctor examination committee was established in order to raise more acupuncture doctors.

Meanwhile, Yang’s Acupuncture Chinese Medicine–Research Institute was also founded and experts Liu Baoyan and Wu Hanqing, Liao Fulong and Tang Zuyi were long term invited as experts. They also include Reiijo Pöyhöne and Zhang Dongqing.

Led by Yang Chungui, Yang’s Swedish Acupuncture Chinese Medicine Research Institute conducts acupuncture related research. This year, it has invited Guohao Law Firm as long term legal consultant.

Up to present, World Acupuncture Federation has completed its organizational structure in Sweden. Acupuncture Science Association in Sweden functions as an academic exchange organization, Yang’s Swedish Acupuncture Chinese Medicine Academy functions as a practicing and application organization and Swedish Chinese Health Center functions as the education base for Chinese medicine and acupuncture examination.

Yang said to promote the development of“Belt and Road Chinese Medicine in Sweden is a great cause, he is just one of the doctors that drive this cause. In fact, many doctors including Liao Rong, Ma Xuehong, Zhang Dongqing, Zhang Hongxia,Lin Defeng, Li Jian, Yang Xi, Yukio Danisman, Lin Youji, Chen Tiejun, Åse Haglund, Joakim Hagström and Xu Tie contribute to this cause.

“This has been the joint efforts by many people. We are going to continue to strive for Chinese acupuncture doctors practice to enter the Swedish medical system and better serve the patients.”

Ambassador Gui Congyou Celebrates Professor Chen Zhu’s Winning of the 2018 Sjöberg Prize

Chinese Ambassador Gui Congyou said  China is willing to further strengthen international cooperation on medical research with Sweden and other countries and contribute more to the health of all human beings.

On 14 April, Chinese Ambassador to Sweden Gui Congyou held a reception at the Embassy to celebrate Professor Chen Zhu’s winning of the 2018 Sjöberg Prize. Prof. Chen Zhu and his wife Prof. Chen Saijuan, President of the Karolinska Institutet Mr. Ole Petter Ottersen, International Director at the Swedish Red Cross Mr. Melker Mabeck, Chairman of the Sjöberg Foundation Mr. Ingemar Sjöberg and other scientists and eminent persons from the Swedish medical and health care communities, and all the diplomats at the Embassy attended.

In his speech, Ambassador Gui, on behalf of all the embassy staff, extended warm congratulations to Prof. Chen on his winning of the 2018 Sjöberg Prize. Ambassador Gui said Prof. Chen Zhu and his research team, through tireless long efforts and in collaboration with French scientists, developed a new targeted treatment for leukemia. They have saved thousands of lives in China and across the world and made great contributions to the development of the world’s medicine and human health. The 2018 Sjöberg Prize is a recognition of their long-term, in-depth research and joint efforts to overcome the world’s medical problems, and also an endorsement of their successful international cooperation in science and technology. Prof. Chen’s visit to Sweden to receive the award is of great significance in promoting the friendly cooperation between China and Sweden and enhancing international cooperation in related fields. Ambassador Gui said that strengthening the prevention and control of major diseases is an important component of the Healthy China initiative proposed at the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. China is willing to further strengthen international cooperation on medical research with Sweden and other countries and contribute more to the health of all human beings.

Prof. Chen said in his speech that the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences’ conferring the 2018 Sjöberg Prize on him once again made the “China Solution” for treating acute promyelocytic leukemia the focus of attention in the world medical community. This research result is a successful example of international cooperation. It is a beautiful story of the East meeting the West and the combination of traditional Confucianism and modern Western medicine. Scientific research transcends national borders. In scientific and health research, scientists from across the world share the same belief and are committed to serving human health, which in turn promotes mutual trust and people-to-people links among countries. It is an essential component of the Belt and Road Initiative, and also an important content in the construction of a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind. Prof. Chen said he and his team would continue working with partners both at home and abroad to understand the mechanisms behind other types of hematological malignancies and to develop innovative and effective therapeutic strategies through collaboration, for the well-being of human society.

Prof. Chen said over the years China and Sweden have maintained a good momentum of development in scientific and technological cooperation and have conducted broad and effective cooperation in various fields such as health, water resources, energy, mining, space, etc. The friendship between the two peoples has a long history, and the merchant ship from the 18th Century, the Göteborg, has become a unique symbol of China-Sweden friendly exchanges. Sweden is also the first Western country to establish diplomatic relations with China, and the bilateral relations have continued to grow to new levels, with China becoming Sweden’s most important trading partner in Asia. He expressed the hope that China-Sweden friendly cooperation will continue to deepen and make more positive contributions to world peace and development.

President of the Karolinska Institutet Mr. Ottersen said the winning of the 2018 Sjöberg Prize by Prof. Chen vividly explained how medical research could bring hope to thousands of patients and promote friendship and mutual trust among countries. We all agree that medical research can become an important component of the Belt and Road Initiative and that extensive cooperation should be carried out in the health field to bring health and hope to the people along the routes. Karolinska Institutet is willing to strengthen cooperation with scientists from China and other countries to tackle medical problems and jointly promote health and medical equality, to the greater benefit of the people of all countries.

In 2016, the Swedish entrepreneur Mr. Bengt Sjöberg donated 2 billion Swedish kronors (about 250 million US dollars) to establish the Sjöberg Foundation for the promotion of scientific research in the fields of cancer, health and environment. The Sjöberg Prize funded by the Sjöberg Foundation is conferred by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Eating fish could prevent Parkinson’s disease (吃鱼可以防止帕金森)

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

Stockholm, April 23(Greenpost)– A new study from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, showed that Parvalbumin, a protein found in great quantities in several different fish species, has been shown to help prevent the formation of certain protein structures closely associated with Parkinson’s disease, a statement from the university website says.

Fish has long been considered a healthy food, linked to improved long-term cognitive health, but the reasons for this have been unclear. Omega-3 and -6, fatty acids commonly found in fish, are often assumed to be responsible, and are commonly marketed in this fashion. However, the scientific research regarding this topic has drawn mixed conclusions. Now, new research from Chalmers has shown that the protein parvalbumin, which is very common in many fish species, may be contributing to this effect.

One of the hallmarks of Parkinson’s disease is amyloid formation of a particular human protein, called alpha-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein is even sometimes referred to as the ‘Parkinson’s protein’
What the Chalmers researchers have now discovered, is that parvalbumin can form amyloid structures that bind together with the alpha-synuclein protein. Parvalbumin effectively ‘scavenges’ the alpha-synuclein proteins, using them for its own purposes, thus preventing them from forming their own potentially harmful amyloids later on.

“Parvalbumin collects up the ‘Parkinson’s protein’ and actually prevents it from aggregating, simply by aggregating itself first,” explains Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, Professor and Head of the Chemical Biology division at Chalmers, and lead author on the study.

With the parvalbumin protein so highly abundant in certain fish species, increasing the amount of fish in our diet might be a simple way to fight off Parkinson’s disease. Herring, cod, carp, and redfish, including sockeye salmon and red snapper, have particularly high levels of parvalbumin, but it is common in many other fish species too. The levels of parvalbumin can also vary greatly throughout the year.

“Fish is normally a lot more nutritious at the end of the summer, because of increased metabolic activity. Levels of parvalbumin are much higher in fish after they have had a lot of sun, so it could be worthwhile increasing consumption during autumn,” says Nathalie Scheers, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, and researcher on the study. It was Nathalie who first had the inspiration to investigate parvalbumin more closely, after a previous study she did looking at biomarkers for fish consumption.

Other neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s, ALS and Huntington’s disease, are also caused by certain amyloid structures interfering in the brain. The team is therefore keen to research this topic further, to see if the discovery relating to Parkinson’s disease could have implications for other neurodegenerative disorders as well. Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede stresses the importance of finding ways to combat these neurological conditions in the future:

“These diseases come with age, and people are living longer and longer. There’s going to be an explosion of these diseases in the future – and the scary part is that we currently have no cures. So we need to follow up on anything that looks promising.”

A follow up study, looking at parvalbumin from another angle, is indeed planned for this autumn. Nathalie Scheers, together with Professor Ingrid Undeland, also of Chalmers, will investigate parvalbumin from herring, and its transport in human tissues.

“It will be very interesting to study how parvalbumin distributes within human tissues in more depth. There could be some really exciting results.”

More About: Fish and Better Neurological Health

The link between higher consumption of fish and better long-term health for the brain has been long established. There is correlation between certain diets and decreased rates of Parkinson’s disease – as well as other neurodegenerative conditions. “Among those who follow a Mediterranean diet, with more fish, one sees lower rates of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s,” says Tony Werner, a PhD student in the Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, and lead researcher on the study. This has also been observed in Japan, where seafood forms a central part of the diet. The team is careful to note that no definite links can be established at this point, however.

More About: Amyloids and Aggregation

Proteins are long chains of amino acids that fold into specific structures to carry out their function. But sometimes, proteins can fold incorrectly, and get tangled up with other proteins, a process known as aggregation.As these misfolded proteins aggregate together, they create long fibrous structures known as amyloids. Amyloids are not necessarily a bad thing, but can be responsible for various diseases. Some of them can interfere with neurons in the brain, killing those cells, and causing a variety of neurodegenerative conditions.

More About: The Study

The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Abundant fish protein inhibits α-synuclein amyloid formation

Nathalie Scheers had looked at parvalbumin before in another context.

“I was on a previous study where we looked at possible compliance markers for fish intake. Parvalbumin is a cause of fish allergies, so we knew that it passed over to the blood, and that this form of parvalbumin is specific for fish”

She joined forces with Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, and together they took the idea forward.

“Because Nathalie had previously shown that parvalbumin passes into the body of the person eating fish, it made sense to study its interaction with human proteins. We already knew that they can meet in the gut, the blood, or the brain,” explains Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede.
