When the Old is New Again: Electroceuticals Chart New Path for Treatment

Imagine using the body’s electrical impulses or currents to treat conditions and illness. Sound far-fetched? It shouldn’t, because this approach has been around for decades (think pacemakers and cochlear implants). And now, researchers are finding new ways to use it. 

Could an old-school intervention provide a ground-breaking replacement to treat conditions, and even replace the need for certain pharmaceuticals? Not only is it possible, but it’s happening as the industry finds new ways to use bioelectronics, also known as electroceuticals.
