CNS acupuncture

Meridians are hard to find

Acupuncture traditionally works by redirecting energy through channels networked around the body and is said to aid all sorts of illnesses and dis-eases. Yeah, maybe.

What would definitely work is acupuncture on the spinal cord and brain. Chronic pain? Find the afferent nerve in the spinal cord and pin it! Worry a lot? Put a pin through the nerve dealing with anxiety!

This may sound like magic, but guided by a very very high resolution PET scan or some other activity sensing scan, we should be able to pinpoint the offending neurons.

       Woah...checking on the author of the "Humor Filtration" idea, I found that I'd had a Halfbakery account for exactly " Two...days" when I annoed on this idea.

       If you sent electrical shocks through the pins, then you have a baked good.

       you'll need an awful lot of very small pins for many conditions.
