OCD Supplements: Reduce Your Fear

Posted Dec 11 2008 6:21pm

People with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) suffer from fears or obsessions that develop into compulsive behavior patterns that compensate for these obsessions or fears. For example, people with OCD relating to dirt or germs may have a fear of invisible germs and so they develop compensating behaviors like compulsive bathing, hand washing and dishwashing.

Natural supplements include herbal supplements. Herbs and botanicals have for centuries been used by ancient tribes and Shaman for healing and in tribal rituals. Herbs are used for flavoring foods, in salads, and as natural remedies or supplements. Herbs as nutritional supplements (for) Depression are a specialized blend of herbs that are known to affect mood. This blend of herbs is often added to vitamins, minerals, and other nutritive substances in order to provide one with the most efficacious supplement possible.

Natural supplements must ensure that biochemical factors, which predispose sufferers of OCD to the condition, are addressed - some FDA approved medications are Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), also used in treating depression.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter and helps the nervous system to release additional serotonin. Some non medication methods are:

Cut out caffeine or reduce intake gradually.

Raise cholesterol above 170 to ensure a sufficient supply of good fats to repair and maintain the myelin sheaths are critical to the nervous system.

Maintain proper intake levels of B-complex vitamins for normal brain function.

Ensure adequate Omega or 3 fatty acids consumption to nourish nerve sheaths - a daily diet of fatty fish is not realistic so include flax seed oil (1 tbs) or milled flax seed (2 tbs).

Take 8 to 10 Spirulina capsules daily this helps nourishment of myelin sheaths and nerves.
