About OMS

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis promotes a program of diet and lifestyle management that has been shown to improve the health and lives of people with Multiple Sclerosis. Professor George Jelinek, who was diagnosed with MS in 1999, developed the rigorously researched OMS Recovery Program more than 15 years ago

As a non-profit organization, we inform people with MS of evidence-based research that can inspire them to improve their lives and potentially overcome the disease. We educate them about the benefits of a preventive medicine approach to MS management. And we empower them by providing tools and resources to help them make sustainable changes that improve health and enable recovery.

“I came across the program when I was researching Multiple Sclerosis on the internet. I stumbled across George’s book, read it cover to cover within a couple of days and it just made a lot of sense. But it was only when I went on a retreat that I completely understood it and that inspired me to change a lot of things in my life. My experience of the OMS program has been fantastic. “
