During July 2016, we have had the privilege of collaborating with Professor George Jelinek and the Neuroepidemiology Unit based at The University of Melbourne.

In the first feature filmed with the group, Professor Jelinek introduces the work his team is undertaking to better understand how lifestyle modifications (particularly dietary ones) can benefit the lives of people living with MS.

Their research is focussed on generating evidence to support the “Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis” protocol, which Professor Jelinek has developed based on his own experiences of living with MS.

While an introductory video can be viewed above, the rest of our collaboration content can be viewed here.

    I get a bit angry when I hear someone say this is a lifestyle disease. I grew up on an organic goat farm where we raised and grew pretty close to all of our food. I have been borderline vegetarian my whole adult life and have always been extremely active. The only lifestyle decision I have made that I think may be a small factor is wearing sunscreen which combined with the fact that I’m Canadian means my vitamin D levels have always been low despite spending a lot of time outside year round. I do believe that lifestyle can contribute a great deal to the way the disease progresses but you need to stop saying it is caused by lifestyle because its like telling me its my fault I have this curse.
