Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder which causes people to have unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that could lead them to engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions).

Doctors and scientists are still not determined what specifically causes OCD, although there are some indications that the low level of serotonin in the brain is responsible for the development of this disorder. It is proven that OCD affects several family members, suggesting that it may be genetically predisposed.

OCD can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has proved to be the most effective talk therapy to overcome this problem. It primarily involves learning about the OCD and better understanding of obsessions of the disorder. Then, it uses two very effective methods (exposure and ritual prevention) that, after a length patients stop with their compulsions, building a greater sense of security in dealing with everyday problems.

In addition to officially recognized methods of treatment, there are also a lot of homeopathic remedies that help in the removal of obsession and compulsion. It is important to note that homeopathy treats man as a whole, which means that choosing homeopathic medicine must consider all about medical history, constitution, genetic predisposition for a certain disease, current status and symptoms and characteristics of personality.
