Obsessive compulsive disorder is a habit, Meditation In A Bottle Review not a condition. It does not require the use of medication to overcome. When attempting programs to cure your symptoms, stick with using just one. Using multiple programs will actually just lead to confusion and will slow down the healing process. A person's mind makes decisions based on emotions, not logic. This causes us to act even when we don't want to. To overcome this, people must train their mind to respond to the same situations in a different way. Once you have accomplished mental retraining, you are that much closer to overcoming your OCD.

Approximately 2.2 million adults or 1% of adults have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) in the United States. Although the first signs of OCD begin in childhood, it usually isn't diagnosed until 19 years of age. OCD is a type of anxiety disorder. People with OCD have repetitive thoughts and behaviors they can't control.

Whereas obsessions are thoughts, ideas, or images that continuously run through a person's head, compulsions are behaviors caused by the obsessions. When obsessive thoughts make people fearful or anxious, they use behaviors or compulsions to relieve the anxiety. Some examples of compulsive behaviors may be excessive grooming, checking doors to make sure they are locked, checking appliances to make sure they are turned off, and rearranging items in a certain way.
