What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?
Psychology Today defines OCD as “an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, images, and sensations (obsessions) and engage in behaviors or mental acts in response to these thoughts or obsessions. Often the person carries out the behaviors to reduce the impact or get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only brings temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person’s level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if left untreated, it can limit his or her ability to function at work or school or even to lead a comfortable existence at home or around others.”
How Does Acupuncture Help?
The Raleigh Acupuncture obsessive compulsive disorder treatment has been successfully treating OCD for years. Chinese medicine treats all conditions at the root level, and this includes OCD. The root of this condition is anxiety, which we recognize as a Heart issue. By nourishing the heart, anxiety levels are reduced. We also dramatically reduce stress by boosting Liver function. In many cases OCD patients have weakness in digestion (what we call Spleen function). Acupuncture strengthens these systems and restores balance. The result is less obsessive thoughts and less compulsive behavior.
Each patient is assessed to determine his or her specific imbalance and needs. Treatments are customized to address these needs. For example, two recent cases of OCD treated in our clinic required different treatments, and both saw dramatic improvement.
One person was highly sensitive, very anxious and prone to overthinking (compulsive thoughts). A random negative comment from a co-worker could send him into a tailspin for days. His acupuncture treatment focused on reducing his anxiety and building an emotional hedge of protection around him to reduce his sensitivity. After just four treatments he felt significantly better.
The second recent case involved a woman who struggled with the compulsive urge to flee from stressful situations. This was making home and work life very difficult for her. Our treatments for her focused on reducing her stress and helping her cope with stressful situations more effectively. This was all done on the physical level, boosting her liver function. In Chinese medicine, the liver is responsible for managing stress levels. Acupuncture enabled her to make much better progress with her talk therapy sessions (with a counselor), resulting in less compulsive behavior.
