Mailbag! Hey Doc…How do I help a dear friend with a compulsive hand washing disorder?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a type of mental illness.  People with OCD can have either obsessive thoughts and urges or compulsive, repetitive behaviors. Some have both obsessions and compulsions.

While hand washing seems innocent enough, when it takes over you life it can affect your job, school, and relationships and keep you from living a normal life. Your thoughts and actions are beyond your control.

Dr. Sean debunks the myth that anti-depressants are the best course of treatment for OCD…it doesn’t work to get at the root cause.  OCD is tied to blood sugar swings from within the GUT that force the body to react.  What we eat sends the body into panic mode.  If you treat the GUT, balance the blood sugar swings and restore nutritional normal…you’re on the way to helping your friend cope from the inside out. Then the focus turns to the Emotional stability.

Don’t Live in Our Area?  No problem – Dr. Sean  runs his  Integrated Urinalysis Panel (IUP) across the country.  Our IUP is an epi-genetic body audit that tells how your body is fighting to stay normal using the fuel you give it.
