A Case study on the management of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in Ayurveda
Â Â Â Â Â Â Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead him to engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions). A person affected with OCD may realize that his obsessions are not reasonable and may try to ignore or stop them, but he is driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease his distress. OCD usually centers on themes which lead to ritualistic behaviour that ultimately affects the person's life.Â In this paper a case study of OCD with the symptoms of obsessions of contamination associated with mild depression and Parkinsonâ€™s disease is discussed which was successfully treated with some Ayurvedic formulations for about 2 months.
