But there are things humans can do to remyelinate their own brains---and it's all about using the brain, and plasticity.
Here's the new research, which is calling into question all MS specialists thought they knew about myelin.
That's right. By keeping the mind active, learning new skills and firing your neurons, you can potentially remyelinate your own brain. The problem is, there is no way for pharma to monetize this--so, you probably won't be hearing about this research in the mainstream press. Because there is nothing to sell you. No prescription.
After a comment below on how plasticity can't possibly remyelinate the MS brain, because it's "too easy" a solution--I've decided to add recent research that shows how plasticity has been noted in MS recovery.
Cortical plasticity predicts recovery from relapse in multiple sclerosis. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24263385
Don't wait for your neurologist to tell you.
Do this for yourself, your brain.
And please let me know what new skill you're mastering---
