Some people with OCD can be entirely cured after treatment. Others may still have OCD, but they can enjoy significant relief from their symptoms. Treatments typically involve some therapy, such as behavior modification therapy, which has proven to be helpful in reducing the symptoms of the condition.
OCD can be managed naturally by exercising, practicing mindfulness, and learning to stay in the moment. It takes time and practice to retrain your mind and focus on something else when the obsessive thoughts come into your mind. OCD can be cured, but it takes a lot of patience and work.
Obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD can be treated naturally. Traditionally, treatment has taken a combination approach using “psychological support, in some cases medication use, helpful strategies to reduce anxiety, and ongoing social/family support.”
However, newer more natural treatments include CBT or Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness and meditation, healthy eating, sleeping, and exercising, along with traditional stress and anxiety reduction techniques. In addition, continued social support from family, friends and maybe even a professional therapist, plays an important part in helping someone manage their OCD. Once a person with OCD recognizes they need help and is willing to take suggestions for how to help themselves, their chances of leading a normal, happy life are quite good.
