Michael Behar on ‘Star Trek,’ Acupuncture and Bioelectronics – NYTimes.com

When I speak about how acupuncture works I cite the primary avenue: our nervous system; i.e. bioelectronics. Acupuncture will elicit the current of injury, modulate neurotransmitters to break neuro-feedback loops and other neuroplastic disorders, and educe brain wave activity. These functions are all electrical in nature.

And I also love Star Trek.

From Michael Behar: “I love “Star Trek.” A good part of the medicine in “Star Trek” is based on tapping into the nervous system to cure everything. It’s just one of these things that I’ve always thought makes sense. The brain and the nervous system are the C.P.U., the central processor, for our entire body. Every cell, every muscle, every organ responds to nerve impulses. Why weren’t we looking at that? That’s the root language for everything”.
