A practical guide to the successful Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis recovery program for people with MS and their doctors. Thousands of people with MS around the world are now following this preventive medicine approach and living healthy, active lives.

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis is an established and successful program of treatment. Once a diagnosis of MS meant inevitable decline and disability. Now thousands of people around the world are living healthy, active lives on the Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis recovery program.

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis explains the nature of MS and outlines an evidence-based 7 step program for recovery. Professor George Jelinek devised the program from an exhaustive analysis of medical research when he was first diagnosed with MS in 1999. It has been refined through major ongoing international clinical studies under Professor Jelinek's leadership, examining the lifestyles of several thousand people with MS world-wide and their health outcomes.

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis is invaluable for anyone recently diagnosed with MS, living with MS for years, or with a family member with MS. It makes an ideal resource for doctors treating people with MS.

    If suffering from or have family members who are, this is well worth a read!
    You may not take everything on in the book but you may make changes that may help the deterioration with MS. I have asked my family to read it to , helps with support and understanding of the disease.

      I feel this has relevance for all people with autoimmune disease. Is there a 'natural' dietary and supplement approach for others with autoimmune diseases, which may support their treatments? Could this 'overcoming MS' approach have relevance to other diseases? I think it is worth consideration.

        WE do not have MS in the family, but other autoimmune diseases. I think this is of interest to families like ours ....... makes one wonder if the MS diet and supplements could be of help to others.
