How to Stop OCD


Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a serious mental condition that affects millions of people every year.

Sufferers, typically, encounter obsessions and compulsions that take over their lives and force them to deal with unspeakable amounts of anxiety and stress. As it stands, no cure exists for OCD. At the same time, countless treatment options are available for anyone willing to take the necessary steps to lesson and/or limit the influence of the disorder on their lives.

Generally speaking, OCD sufferers have to deal with uncontrollable obsessions over various points of their day to day lives. Obsessions are recognized as persistent and irrational thoughts that randomly appear in people’s minds and essentially force them to participate in actions and give in to compulsions that they otherwise would not even acknowledge. Compulsions, on the flip side, are uncontrollable and repetitive actions that sufferers are powerless to prevent no matter how much they may wish to do so.

Some reports indicate that as much as five percent of the current population sufferers from OCD. With that staggering figure in mind, it’s no surprise that people are constantly seeking out new and more effective ways to fight the disorder.

Although numerous different options exist in the battle versus OCD, the two most well-known options are medications with serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) and Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy (CBT). The first is a medicinally-based process where serotonin in the brain is altered in order to change brain chemistry in a way that would be beneficial to sufferers. The latter option, however, plays off traditional therapy in an effort to change the way people think in hopes that it will positively impact sufferers.

While an initial OCD diagnosis can be very scary, treatment options are available. The key, as with any other mental disorder, is educating one’s self on the matter and then utilizing all of the options available.
