What an amazing, inspirational video, thank you to all involved for telling your stories. I'm sure all those positive words would encourage anyone and lead them to looking into OMS, which is what we need, more people to understand and follow the OMS program.


Thank you so much for this uplifting video. I was in a deep, dark hole and receiving your email, today and watching the video has motivated me to get back on the OMS programme. Thank you, thank you.

[~Rachael Hunter]8 what scientific evidence is there to support the views put forward in this film?


[~Anonymous] OMS is an evidence based programme, Prof Jelinek's book has over 940 references. If you are interested in finding out more about the science behind the OMS program this page is a great place to start https://overcomingms.org/for-professionals/science-behind-oms but there is a huge amount of information elsewhere on our website covering each of the individual elements of the program (Diet, exercise, meditation, vitamin D etc). The Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis book covers all of this in details and we operate a free book scheme in the UK and Australia - plus a free ebook scheme in the US. There are also some videos here which explain: https://overcomingms.org/overcoming-ms-information-videos


I have watched this so many times - beautifully made and gratefully watched....

I'm not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow
for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

I find the stories in this video so relatable, the empowerment you get when you find the OMS lifestyle is priceless. After my MS diagnosis every word coming from Professionals mouths is Doom and Gloom, I know if they sugar coated the message it wouldn’t be helpful but then to come across OMS and then feel as though there is something positive that I’m in control of and only asks you to live a healthier lifestyle in return? That is powerful.
