I am aware that some firmly believe that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a condition you have to learn to live with for life. That there is no treatment available that can dramatically reduce, or in many cases, eliminate your symptoms and subsequent suffering.
In my experience, OCD is successfully treated with homeopathy when the homeopathic remedy is chosen based on the persons specific symptoms and health history. To select the appropriate homeopathic remedy that will be helpful in your case, please consult with a professional homeopath.
Some of the homeopathic remedies I find are frequently needed in cases of OCD are; Arsenicum album, Argentum nitricum, Calcaria carb., Causticum, Zincum met., Physostigma, Hyoscyamus, Syphilinum, Carcinosin, Sulphur, Stramonium.
These are just a few of the possible homeopathic remedies that can help in OCD cases. The correct remedy will assist the body in re-establishing balance and health, which in turn stops the intrusive thoughts and compulsive behavior from happening. The homeopathic remedy is selected based on a whole person approach to health care. Homeopathic medicines are natural, gentle, non-toxic and free of any side effects. Homeopathy is safe to use by people of any age.
The case examples below were severely limiting each person from engaging in friendships, a meaningful social life, intimate relationships, as well as being detrimental to functioning at work and in school.
Cases from my practice:
Counting and symmetry
7 year old boy’s symptoms started when he was 5. He is extremely meticulous with all the toys and books in his room. He lines them up daily and they have to be placed just so. He makes his own bed in the morning and is only satisfied when there are no creases, when everything is perfect. He has tremendous anxiety about his mom going in his room when he’s in school, moving anything out of place. The moment he gets home, he goes to his room and checks to make sure everything is as he left it.
He can not tolerate having other children over to play in his room. He spends hours alone counting and lining things up.
The homeopathic remedy Calcarea carb. helped this little guy overcome his compulsions in a matter of three months, and just two doses of the remedy.
28 year old female with excessive fear and obsession about health and disease. This client had extreme fear of contamination, which eventually made it impossible for her to continue in her job. She struggled through college, and spent this time of her youth mostly isolated from her peers, preoccupied with her obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior. She is now married and has a 2 year old child. Her OCD made her feel completely isolated, not being able to have normal social interactions, and also affected her ability to be intimate with her husband. The remedy arsenicum album helped her make a complete recovery over a period of 8 months, the symptoms gradually reducing between each consultation. The remedy was initially given in a low potency daily dose, before a higher potency was prescribed for the remainder of the treatment. She is no longer taking any homeopathic remedies, and continues to do wonderfully.
Religious and sexual obsession
36 year old male constantly praying about wrong he believes he is committing. Lots of guilt and shame about inappropriate sexual intrusive thoughts. The intrusive thoughts started when he was 16 years old. The thoughts gradually increased during the first 5 years, to eventually preoccupying his mind every waking hour for the past 15 years. He was suffering with severe anxiety, guilt, major depression and thoughts of ending his life, when he contacted me for help. The remedy Aurum met. relieved all his symptoms over a period of 7 months. We had 5 consultations during the course of treatment, and he needed a total of 4 doses of the remedy. He continues to do remarkably well 2 years later, and has had no need to repeat the remedy.
