Have you ever had trouble talking about the Overcoming MS Recovery Program at a neurology appointment? Well, rest assured, the word concerning the importance of lifestyle changes - as opposed to just medication - is spreading in all the right circles.
It follows some wonderful success the team at OMS have had in getting papers published in high-impact medical journals. These research papers include:
• Published in Neurological Sciences, one study found that positive outcomes in quality of life are associated in people with MS who participate in the OMS Recovery Program and focus on diet, stress management, exercise, Vitamin D/Omega-3 supplementation and medication.
• The second study, published on PLOS ONE found that fatigue – a major symptom of MS – is markedly lower in those people with MS with healthy lifestyles that are specifically in line with the OMS Recovery Program.
• Published in BMC Psychiatry, research shows that lifestyles in line with the OMS program are associated with dramatically improved mental health of people with MS. In summary, following analysis of the HOLISM data which monitored over 2,000 people with MS, results showed that those who had engaged with the OMS program in one or more ways experienced 30% better physical health, more than 20% better mental health, one-third the risk of serious fatigue and one-tenth the risk of depression, compared with those who had not followed the OMS program.
