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.

Stories of hope


USA, OMSer since 2013

“When I was dignosed with MS I felt very lost. The doctors gave me some guidance about drugs but no guidance about disability and getting better. I did what they said and followed that course for some time but it felt like my future was uncertain and gloomy. I found George’s book and it really resonated with me.”

Sweden, OMSer since 2010

“I had double vision and I didn’t know much about MS, luckily, so wasn’t really scared, more surprised. And as I had the double vision I couldn’t read very well, so Marlin said she gets a lot of books and if there’s a good one she’ll give it to me. And the first book she gave me was George Jelinek’s Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis. We’ve done the journey together.”
