In brief: Drugs exist
Previous answer on stress reduction which is really important.
However, medications exist that can help too. It does depend on which demyelinating problem (ms, cdip), and what type as some treatments are more indicated for certain kinds of ms for example.Many are powerful immune-modulating drugs, and can be by mouth, shot or IV depending. Best to see someone skilled in treatment, such as neurologist.
