Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of the anxiety disorders, and is a potentially crippling and chronic condition. Those who suffer from OCD are caught in a cycle of repetitive thoughts and behaviors that interferes with even simple, everyday tasks. Although they often realize the behaviors are senseless, the compulsion to perform them remains extremely difficult to defeat. Although OCD symptoms typically begin during the teenage years or early adulthood, some children develop the illness at earlier ages, including the preschool years. In addition to seeking appropriate psychological and psychiatric counseling, I recommend that people diagnosed with OCD consider taking fish oil supplements, which contain omega-3 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids have been shown to help alleviate a wide range of psychological conditions, especially those characterized by anxiety.
