Electric shocks to the tongue can reduce Tinnitus symptoms

Scientists have proposed that electrically shocking the tongue, combined with a carefully designed sound program, can reduce symptoms of Tinnitus. In an experiment, 326 people with tinnitus sat for up to 1 hour at a time with a small plastic paddle, which delivered an electrical current, on their tongue. Over the 12 weeks of treatment, patients’ tinnitus symptoms improved dramatically.

What about shocks to, say, debaters' tongues, to treat the public's despair about the future of the country?

How crazy. Ancient Herbal medicine and acupuncture are far more successful in treat organ patterns like tinnitus. 4000 years of research in herbal medicine at their finger tips and they decide to shock the tongue. I wonder if they had properly working taste buds at the end. I can hear great but can't taste anything. lolol
