I suffered from intrusive thoughts for almost 2.5 years. I desperately wanted them to not arise, but was unable to stop them. I suffered a lot, as a consequence of the arising of these thoughts.
They only reduced 3 weeks ago, after I did some research on OCD treatments and found reference to clinical trials which found Inositol to be an effective cure. I decided to order some and try it to see if it would be effective at reducing my OCD symptoms.
Within 24 hours of taking it, my OCD symptoms had become greatly reduced:
- Greatly reduced frequency of OCD symptoms: intrusive thoughts occurred less often. Whereas before they were almost constant, now they are only occasional.
- Greater ease of letting intrusive thoughts go without guilt/anxiety/depression, or fighting, or resisting them: they arise occasionally, disappear, and I just get on with what I am doing.
I have been taking Inositol for about 3 weeks now, and remain greatly improved.
I think, based only on my own experience of the dramatic reduction of symptoms in a very short time after the introduction of a chemical, that chemistry plays a very significant role in what we think and feel. Finding the right over-the-counter medication has been proven in clinical trials and in my own personal experience to be effective in reducing OCD symptoms.
I was fortunate that I found a solution so quickly and the first medication I tried actually worked for me. If you like, I could research other possible over-the-counter treatments for you as well, so you could have a range of possible options to consider?
I hope this may be helpful for you.
