Why are we talking about neuroplasticity in regards to Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS & MCS?
What is neuroplasticity?
How does neuroplasticity occur?
How can we best affect neuroplasticity for recovery from ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, POTS & MCS?
These are some of the questions we answer in this episode of Wisdom from the Other Side as well as central sensitisation and the benefits of taking a wider approach to neuroplasticity.
