New to Overcoming MS?
If you - or someone you care about - has been diagnosed with MS, we are here to tell you that there is hope. Professor George Jelinek searched for the research papers which showed that lifestyle can make a difference to people with Multiple Sclerosis when he himself was diagnosed with MS. He and many others have benefitted mentally and/or physically as a result of making lifestyle changes.
Although a cure for MS isn't yet available, Overcoming MS is about living your best life after an MS diagnosis.
You can live a full and healthy life with MS - and exactly what that looks like will vary from person to person. Specific outcomes depend on factors such as your starting point, risk factors, and type of MS. People "overcome" MS in their own way, which can include mental and/or physical improvements, and the positive benefits from being connected to others with MS in the community.
There is a lot of information about lifestyle changes that benefit MS on this website, so please don’t get lost in it or walk away.
If you'd like to take control of your mental and/or physical wellbeing, read on for our 4 steps to get started the easy way...
"Overcoming MS was my light in the darkness, giving me realistic hope and a path to follow. It has made an enormous difference to my physical and mental well-being, and I have no hesitation recommending it to anyone living with MS”.
Dr Jonathan White, member of the Overcoming MS community.
