Got a headache? Try a little trepanation...

Trepanation, the drilling of a hole in a person's skull in order to heal intracranial pressure and other problems, has been practiced in human societies since at least the Neolithic period, and is still practiced today as a stepping stone to other neurological procedures.

The following video is not for the squeamish, but even if you fit in this category, you should still watch how an African 'medicine man' performs this operation, without any anesthetics, on a woman while she's conscious; she's obviously not very squeamish. The whole thing is truly impressive...



Got a headache? Try trepanation. Side effects may include greater headaches, deformed skulls, sensitivity to sunlight and little kids poking fun at you because, let's face it, you look kind of funny...

I gotta say, though, it beats most of the side effects of commercialized medicines you see on television: dead libido, nausea, constipation, diarrhea (yeah, that combination beats me), bloating, bitching, projectile vomiting, itchy, burning genitals, mood swings, etc...
