We are unique in our whole-person approach and practical evidence-based focus upon self-management of MS, formulated as a holistic program. We are registered to work in the UK (England, Wales Scotland), the US and Australia.
The Overcoming MS program addresses those lifestyle factors that are shown to influence MS progression the most, such as diet, sedentary living, stress and a lack of vitamin D. We provide extensive tailored information and support for people living with multiple sclerosis to help them make practical changes in their day-to-day lives.
The Overcoming MS program is a product of pioneering work by Professor George Jelinek and the Neuroepidemiology Unit (NEU) of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne, Australia. Its evidence is broad-based and incorporates over 1,000 research studies from some of the world’s leading medical journals.
“The work of Dr. Jelinek and the principles of Overcoming MS gave me a sense of hope and more importantly, a sense of control...Overcoming MS showed me how living a quality life with MS could be a reality for me. And I especially appreciate how evidence-based and data-driven the Overcoming MS lifestyle is.” Nicole, USA
The Overcoming MS charity was established by Linda Bloom in 2012, whose life was transformed by the approach. She wanted to distribute the Overcoming MS program and its powerful message of realistic hope across the globe empowering ever more people to live well with MS. Today, our reach has exceeded 20,000 people affected by MS worldwide. Our team is small and punches above its weight, supported by a passionate and growing group of volunteers.
