About OMS

OMS another new logo 850, thin

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS) promotes the integration of diet and lifestyle changes into standard medical management in a program 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.

OMS is well established in Australia and New Zealand as a non-profit organization that accepts no funding from the pharmaceutical industry. In 2011, we founded a charity in the UK to increase awareness of OMS, with the aim of making our program and its benefits available to the more than 2.5 million people with MS around the world.

Now a registered charity in the US, UK and Australia, Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis is becoming a truly global organization.

The OMS Recovery Program strives to empower people to overcome multiple sclerosis and enjoy a healthy life.
