Apparently they already use this to treat MS

That is the coolest thing I have read in a long time. I know that certain aches and pains can be caused simply due to fatigue, and that is the common core link with all of us. Brain regeneration also sounds good. I know that I should be on C-Pap, and I think I might get back into that, just to help with the fatigue and minor aches, but if it will help with the greater ones, I won't complain...

Keep us posted if you find anything else!

It was a small study, but certainly sounds worth pursuing

There was a lot of buzz about it across the various social media platforms as well. Altho not FM related, this story about L/Bombardier Ben Parkinson from the beginning of the year undergoing very similar treatment has been very interesting to follow. He has a real determination and drive to get himself as well and fit as he possibly can be, and seeing how he has progressed in updates has been amazing. His speech has improved, and he has said he feels his memory is better too.

I know someone with ms that's currently having this treatment and I can see an improvement, unfortunately being an 'alternative' therapy it's not available on the nhs.

I'm trying out intermittent fasting, which apparently induces 'neuroplasticity' too along with autophagy of the cells. I thought fasting might be good for fibro, now I've read the article and found that neuroplasticity can also help it makes me even more determined to continue the fasting!
