Causes Of OCD covers the signs, symptoms causes, and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this condition. 

Causes Of OCD

Causes Of OCD:

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is an anxiety disorder where unwanted thoughts (obsessions) are temporarily relieved by compulsions (cleaning, counting, hand washing, etc.).  Discomfort  increases when not performing these routines.  Other anxiety issues, like eating disorders, depression, etc. often accompany OCD.  Sometimes, people with OCD are unaware their behavior is not normal. 

OCD affects over 2 million US citizens.  Researchers are discovering family traits, possibly genetic, that may lead to OCD, though results are still early.  Others speculate it could be caused by childhood trauma, as with many mental illnesses.

Signs And Symptoms Of OCD:

Treatment Of OCD:

Anxiety medications and counseling are among the many effective treatments available, that have a good chance of restoring a normal life.  Many new medications are being investigated.  Here is a resource for local OCD diagnosis and treatment, including free treatment and clinical trials.

What You Can Do About OCD:

While many more mild anxieties can be handled with self-talk, exposure to the specific phobia, diet and exercise, OCD is a severe anxiety disorder and should be treated by a licensed professional.

Complete Healing:

If you're looking for help with your health, it probably goes beyond this one issue, maybe including mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff you and 6your doctor can't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
