More About the Author

George Jelinek lives in Victoria in Australia, with Professorial appointments at the University of Melbourne and Monash University. George has had a stellar career in Emergency Medicine; he won the Prize in the first Specialist Examinations in 1986, is a past President of the Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine and Vice-President of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM). He was the first Professor of Emergency Medicine in Australasia and Founding Editor of the journal Emergency Medicine Australasia, a major international journal he has edited for 20 years. He was awarded the ACEM Medal in 2003, and was a WA Finalist for 2008 Australian of the Year recognising his work in emergency medicine and multiple sclerosis.

George has written and edited several major textbooks in Emergency Medicine, but since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, has devoted considerable time to analysing and summarising the vast medical literature on this disease. His two major works, 'Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis: An Evidence-based Guide to Recovery', and 'Recovering from Multiple Sclerosis: Real Life Stories of Hope and Inspiration', published by Allen and Unwin, are complementary books that examine the evidence and the personal experience that provide realistic hope that it is possible to be well after a diagnosis of MS.

Dr. Jelinik presents a comprehensive summary of conventional and alternative treatment to MS. Excellent resource explaining benefits of diet, positive attitude, modern medicine, etc. Overall, the best MS book I have read to date.

This book gave me hope that I could stop being a victim to MS. He supports his research well, writes clearly and convincingly. The only trouble is I don't know whether my ms was going to be fairly benign anyway or it has become so by following his recommendations. Either way -I don't care! He has given me the facts and optimism for the future. I think this book should be read by everyone who has the disease or has a family member with it. I haven't read anything nearly as useful as this book. I fully recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This book is breathtaking. Multiple Sclerosis hits people between 20-40 years of age (usually) and women at 3 times the rate of men. The prevailing view is it's bad news, progressive, and drugs have limited success - a "go make yourself comfortable" medical view. Professor Jelinek of Western Australia however, a medical specialist and teacher, argues against such limited wisdom. George has MS - and his mother suicided from MS. His world fell apart when he was diagnosed. He took time off, read all 19,000 medical articles published at the time, and found an article in one of the world's top medical journals so stunning, simple and crucial, that he drilled down, developed and brought the research up to date - and (altruistically and honouring his mother) produced a readable yet at the same time erudite book showing lifestyle changes, in particular diet and sufficient vitamin D, have profound effects on the course of the disease. It is, in my opinion, a superb book to be read by anyone with MS.

In your life, you will never encounter another 180 pages so densely packed with so much useful information as this incredible little book. (and that's not even counting all the weblinks!)

Take it slow. It's a lot of information

But you will never read anything better.

[...]

Thank you, Dr. J. You're generosity is breathtaking. There's a good reason good doctors have so much respect.

You earn it.

ps - don't fret about the book being sold out - a new edition is coming out very soon!
