I have OCD. I am using some ayurvedic medicine for that but at night my mind become hyperactive(excessive thought) that I am not able to sleep. As medicine I am using one ashwagandha capsule, almond oil drop in nose. Doing alunom vilom. But no improvement. Due to excessive problem I had to take one allopathy (lonazep md. 25) to cool my nervous system so that I can sleep. But can't take it daily. Please tell me if there any proper ayurvedic medicine available in market. Do I need EEG test?

Hello Amit,

Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD) features a pattern of unwanted thoughts and fears that lead you to do repetitive behaviors. These obsessions and compulsions interfere with the daily activities and cause significant distress. 

The person suffering from OCD repetitively repeats the activities like repeatedly washing hands, brushing teeth, etc. Such behavior results in anxiety, depression and other mental issues. 

Here are a few tips that will surely help you:

Meditation 
Meditation is the ultimate key to achieving good mental health. 
Just like our physical health, our mental health is also equally important and meditation is the best to achieve the same.

Give 20 to 25 minutes from your busy day for meditation. Practice it in sukhasana or padma asana and concentrate on your breathing. 

Daily meditating will surely lead to a healthy and happy mind.

Diet
Diet also has an impact on our mental health as our metabolism depends on the foods that we have which in turn affects the hormonal secretions.

  • Drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice in it in the morning on an empty stomach. This will help to boost the metabolism at the start of the day.
  • Have soaked raisins and other dry fruits to get the easily absorbable nutrients. 
  • Eat sprouts, nuts, beans and salads.
  • Include Vitamin C in your diet like blueberries, amla, orange or lemon as they have antioxidant properties. 
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to eliminate the toxins out of the body and to be hydrated. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal products as they are not meant for the human digestive system and hence it results in the accumulation of toxins in the body. 
  • Avoid processed, packaged and preserved foods as they have bad effects on our digestive system. 

Yoga

Daily yoga is very effective for achieving a good balance between the mind, body and soul.

  • Practice suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do bhujanga asana, paschimottan asana, gomukha asana and padahasta asana. 
  • Do pranayam regularly for 15-20min, specially anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Take sunrays early in the morning. 

Sleep 
The quality and pattern of the sleep also determine the state of our mental health as it affects the circadian rhythm and in turn the hormonal balance. Sometimes, lack of proper also leads to mental illness. 
So, take proper sleep of at least 8 to 10 hours daily.
Avoid electronic devices like mobiles, laptops, computers, tv, etc at least 1hour before sleeping to improve the quality of sleep. 
Sleep in a dark room and the place of sleep should be quiet and clean.


Thank you
