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.

“It’s very difficult when you first start to experience the symptoms of MS. I think for me there were two levels: the diagnosis, where I thought, ‘I can do this’, and then experiencing the gradual disability that comes when you completely neglect the fact that you’ve just been diagnosed with a serious illness.”

Canada, OMSer since 2009

“When I was first diagnosed I turned to the internet because I knew very little about MS and finally I stumbled on the OMS site and the books of Dr. Jelinek. OMS has dramatically affected my quality of life. In the first couple of years I didn’t see any change, then slowly things started to change.”
