Re: Acupuncture as prophylactic treatment for 'chronic headache'
I think it only fair, and in the public interest, that any
respondents to this paper who have/have had a professional and/or
financial interest in remedies for headaches and migraine that 'compete
with' acupuncture should declare those interests. I have read that
Prof. Ferrari may have received funding from various pharmaceutical
companies including Glaxo Wellcome (1), and Prof. Goadsby has held the
position of Wellcome Senior Research Fellow (2), therefore
pharmaceutical companies that are involved in the production of headache
and migraine remedies.
I am a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture & moxibustion
