OCD

Don’t be so OCD! We have all heard that, and maybe have said that when someone is obsessing about food, life, clothing, or a clean car! Some people are highly perfectionistic, and in some cases, struggle with depression and anxiety in tandem.

Obsessive compulsive behaviors are highly misunderstood. What you need to know is there are actually two distinct types. The first is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and the second, not so well known, is Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD).

Many, many times, these types are a result of undermethylation (OCD) or overmethylation (OCPD). The great news is nutrients can fix this! If you’re thinking “methyl what?” then check out my journal entry here.

In summary, if you obsess about one or two things (which for me was food and my body), and have a calm exterior with lots of inner tension, you might have a problem with undermethylation. If you, or someone you know, has very noticeable high anxiety, excessively fixates on minor details, and often comes off as a bit crazy or erratic, then overmethylation may be the problem.

“When we first started working with Sami our son’s OCD was so severe we had to pull him out of school because he couldn’t concentrate, complete even simple homework assignments, nor focus in the classroom. With a Crohn’s diagnosis, we knew his gut was inflamed but were unaware of the connection between his brain and his gut, as well as the connection between undermethylation and OCD. Sami provided a clear plan and guidance on the best foods for him, how to heal his gut, and the right kind of supplements to take. Since making these changes our son graduated valedictorian of his class and gave an amazing speech at his graduation ceremony. His anxiety is now minimal. He is now in college, is working part-time at Old Navy, and will soon be publishing a fantasy thriller novel.

We appreciate you so much and the work you have done in regards to this. It is a blessing to Justin and us to have found you.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
