About This Cause
Overcoming MS is the world’s leading multiple sclerosis healthy lifestyle charity. We are unique in our whole person approach and practical evidence-based focus upon self-management of MS, formulated as a holistic 7-step program. We are registered to work in England and Wales, the US and Australia, and are awaiting registration in Scotland.
The OMS 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 OMS 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 pieces of research from some of the world’s leading medical journals.
