Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Homeopathy Specialty Treatment with Psychological Counselling in Pondicherry

Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an illness that causes people to have unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and to repeat certain behaviours (compulsions) over and over again. We all have habits and routines in our daily lives, such as brushing our teeth before bed. However, for people with OCD, patterns of behaviour get in the way of their daily lives.

 Conventional knowledge is that there are four types of OCD: obsessions that are aggressive, sexual, religious or harm-related with checking compulsions; obsessions about symmetry that are accompanied by arranging or repeating compulsions; obsessions of contamination are associated with cleaning compulsions; and symptoms of hoarding.

With OCD, someone may have obsessions about:
  • Illness or injury (involving the person or someone else)
  • Coming across unlucky numbers or words
  • Things being even or straight
  • Things being perfect or just right in a certain way
  • Making mistakes or not being sure
  • Doing or thinking something bad
  • Fear of dirt or germs
  • Disgust with bodily waste or fluids
  • Concern with order, symmetry (balance) and exactness
  • Worry that a task has been done poorly, even when the person knows this is not true
  • Fear of thinking evil or sinful thoughts
  • Thinking about certain sounds, images, words or numbers all the time
  • Need for constant reassurance
  • Fear of harming a family member or friend

Here are some OCD compulsions:
  • Lots of hand washing or showering (doing this way more than usual or having a hard time stopping)
  • Counting (like having to count 25 white cars before going into school)
  • Touching (like touching every single fence post between home and the bus stop)
  • Checking things over and over (such as doors, locks, or stoves)
  • Doing things a certain number of times (like having to try on five dresses before leaving your room)
  • Arranging things in a very particular or neat way
  • Asking the same question over and over
  • Tying and retying shoes over and over until they feel just right
  • Re-reading, erasing, and re-writing
  • Cleaning and grooming, such as washing hands, showering or brushing teeth over and over again
  • Checking drawers, door locks and appliances to be sure they are shut, locked or turned off
  • Repeating actions, such as going in and out of a door, sitting down and getting up from a chair, or touching certain objects several times
  • Ordering and arranging items in certain ways
  • Counting to a certain number, over and over
  • Saving newspapers, mail or containers when they are no longer needed
  • Seeking constant reassurance and approval

Combining therapy with medication is usually considered the most effective way to treat OCD.
