What can I do to repair the myelin sheath?
There is nothing at present proven to restore myelin more efficiently than normal repair mechanisms. At present the key to myelin restoration is rapid and complete cessation of inflammatory activity although it remains possible that some forms of inflammatory activity may actually promote demyelination and repair.
