Treatment of OCD

OCD can be treated with

  • Conventional treatment
  • Psychotherapy
  • Homeopathic treatment.

Conventional Treatment - Antidepressant, anti anxiety medicines, neurotransmitters, electroconvulsive therapy or even surgery may help patient. Surgery can have its own complication where as medications may have side effects on various organs in body.

Antidepressants - generally work by blocking emotional responses. Unlike homeopathic remedies, dependence builds up quickly, and once a course of antidepressants has begun, it is often a step down a long, slippery slope to dependency

Psychotherapy - Cognitive behavioral therapy, behavioral therapy, decentralization technique, meditations may help in a supportive role.

Homeopathic treatment for OCD:

Homeopathy works better in the early cases of OCD. In our experience at Life Force, homeopathy does not work effectively in the chronic cases, especially who are dependent on the strong doses of conventional medicines.
