Understanding the OMS Program

What is it?

This lifestyle modification approach to managing MS was developed by Professor George Jelinek based on extensive medical research, following his own personal experiences of an MS diagnosis. The information contained within Prof. Jelinek’s book is free to people with MS, and contains detailed information, including the evidence behind each of the components of the program

How can it help?

The OMS program has helped many thousands of people around the world improve their health and enjoy a better quality of life, despite their MS diagnosis. Mounting evidence shows that mainstream preventive approaches like the OMS Program can have a positive impact on chronic lifestyle diseases such as MS. We hope you will consider integrating what you learn here into the work you’re doing to help people with MS. 

An Evidence-based Approach

The Science Behind OMS

The evidence behind the OMS Recovery Program is broad-based, drawn from multiple different study methodologies and research groups, and incorporating over 1,000 research studies from the world’s top medical journals.
