Electroporation???

Electroporation is a method by which an electric discharge is used to 
make a cell permeable to certain substances, particularly DNA.  This 
method is used on cells, both eukaryotic and prokaryotic.

It really doesn't make sense to think about electroporation on the human 
body.  Human cells, yes.  You can't fit a body in a electroporation cuvette.
The kinds of voltage they use would probably kill you anyhow.
