Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is an anxiety disorder that interferes with people’s lives. Obsessive thoughts, compulsions and obsessions take control causing distress and affecting a person’s normal life. Unfortunately, OCD is not something someone can easily manage by himself.
OCD is common in both children as well as adults and it is estimated that around 2.5 million adults in the US currently have it. OCD can start at any time from preschool to adulthood.
OCD has two main characteristics:
- Obsessions: disturbing and persistent thoughts which do not allow you to function normally,
- Compulsions: uncontrollable need of repeating a specific behavior, also known as ritual (for example: need to repeatedly check, touch or count things).
It’s important to clarify that people with OCD do NOT enjoy performing the rituals; the rituals are executed simply to control the obsessions and they are just a temporary relief from the anxiety created by intrusive thoughts.
What Causes OCD?
Although it’s not entirely clear what causes OCD, the only fact is that if someone suffers from it his or her brain is not working correctly. However, there are some theories: research suggests that OCD is linked to a chemical imbalance, irregularities with serotonin (a neurotransmitter which regulates anxiety). People with OCD may have a lower amount of serotonin than required. OCD sufferers may also have different patterns of brain activity or problems in the communication between the front part of the brain and deeper structures causing the person to perceive danger everywhere with no real reasons for it.
Symptoms of OCD
- Get easily engaged in behaviors that obstruct important activities (washing, cleaning, counting, checking),
- Have frequent and uncontrollable thoughts on different topics such as sex, aggression or religious matters,
- Need to perform specific activities over and over again in order to get some anxiety relief,
- Fear of dirtiness, getting a physical illness, etc.
- Unusual need to have things put in a precise orders and sometimes symmetry in objects; sometimes arranging objects and rooms until it “feels right”,
- To be extremely superstitious about lucky/unlucky numbers, certain colors, ideas, movements, etc.
- To clean and wash excessively or in a certain structured way,
- Checking constantly things around to be sure everything is fine,
- Avoiding situations that might trigger obsessions.
The main problem with OCD sufferers is that they decide to take action and look for help when the disorder is already in an advanced stage. The main reasons for this? Fear of being judged. For most individuals with OCD it takes several years until they decide to get help and the right treatment.
Once a mental health practitioner detects it, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is treated with psychotherapy (cognitive behavior therapy), medication, or a combination of both.
Cognitive behavior therapy is a kind of psychotherapy that aims to show and teach a person different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to situations. In time, anxiety is better managed and fear is reduced along with the obsessive thoughts and compulsions.
Medication. Antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications tend to be useful in treating OCD. Medication is beneficial for some OCD sufferers, however some of them could take weeks to start working and may present side effects such as headache, nausea, difficulty sleeping, or even suicidal thoughts.
Talk to your doctor about possible side effects, and also about which is the right treatment for you and your individual needs.
OCD can be an ugly monster for the individuals suffering from it, but in time and with the proper help, anyone can start feeling better, and finally control and overcome it. If you think you or one of your loved ones may suffer from OCD, don’t be afraid and seek for help. Remember no one will judge you, there is a solution for it!

It’s always hard to tell the difference between anxiety and heart attacks, since their physical symptoms can feel incredibly similar in individuals. It is very easy to confuse them and thus avoid getting the proper treatment and even save our lives if we are suffering a heart attack without being aware of it. There are certain signs that can give us a clue about these two diseases and let us know when we need to look for medical attention as soon as possible. Let’s review them!
While feeling anxious or stressed, your body reacts in order to protect you from the “immediate danger”. This situation can easily put an extra worry on your heart since you’re feeling vulnerable, under stress, or sense a demanding situation you cannot possibly deal with anymore. Feeling anxious is a normal reaction in humans, even if there is no immediate danger around you.
The problem then is not anxiety itself, but what it does to our bodies in the long term and when all these fears and reactions occur with no apparent reason. When anxiety becomes a setback in our lives and a panic attack occurs with no warning, usually triggered by a stressful event, the anxiety becomes constant and overwhelming, it interferes with your relationships and activities, you are no longer productive or functional and feel unable of managing your daily life.
- Constant tension or worrying
- Trouble concentrating at work or at school
- Feeling tense, nervousness and uncontrollable irrational fears
- Feeling in danger and watching for signs of danger
- Unmanageable and intrusive negative thoughts
- Constant state of tension, irritability, worrying about anything and everything
- Inability to rest properly
Besides the common symptoms, when anxiety has crossed the limit of normality, it becomes more than just a feeling and involves wide variety of physical symptoms. The most common physical symptoms of anxiety include:
- Palpitations & chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Stomach upset or dizziness
- Frequent urination or diarrhea
- Numbness of hands and feet
- Muscle tension or Trembling
- Headaches, fatigue and dizziness
- Vertigo and a feeling of fainting
- Elevated Heart Beat
Anxiety may easily give us the sensation that we’re about to die; we may become numb and unable to see what is happening to us. The best approach while feeling any of these symptoms is visiting a doctor, a health care professional that can guide us through this.
Understanding Heart Attacks
Heart attacks usually occur when a blood clot blocks one of the coronary arteries, then:
- A loss of blood supply and oxygen take place,
- A section of heart muscles happen to obstruct,
- Thus the heart can’t get enough oxygen or “fuel”,
- And finally the heart cells begin to die.
During a heart attack the person will experience many symptoms that can be confused with anxiety (panic) attacks and they may last for several hours or, it’s also likely that the person will feel no symptoms at all.
Heart attacks are a result of different coronary diseases. Some signs which show you may be having a heart attack are:
- Constant chest discomfort or pain,
- Shortness of breath,
- Faintness, nausea or lack of appetite,
- Stomach pain,
- Anxiety, feeling the sensation you’re having a panic attack
- Pain in upper body parts,
- Rapid or irregular pulse,
- Overall weakness.
What should I do if I feel these symptoms?
As you may have noticed, both conditions present very similar symptoms, reason why a quarter of all heart attack victims choose to ignore them and move on before reaching the hospital in a critical condition. What is recommended in these cases in order to avoid complications? Get prompt treatment and medical attention. Remember that you should not ignore the possible warning signs, nor wait till they go away; try to relax (if possible) and ask for assistance.
Both conditions can be treated, but whether you’re having a heart attack or anxiety attack symptoms always keep in mind that you can save your life or the life of your loved ones if you decide to be brave, take action and make a visit to the doctor.

Obesity is mainly caused in many cases by bad eating habits. Obesity and stress lead to the onset of Diabetes Type 2, as researchers have seen, reducing the lifespan of the obese diabetic. But what if we could treat and prevent all these problems? Scientists and researchers have been analyzing and debating over the right course of action and the underlying causes to be addressed by decision makers to tackle diabetes type 2 in the obese. The solution is already available both for treatment and prevention. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 there more than 2.1 billion overweight and obese in the world. What are we doing wrong?
Why obesity causes diabetes type2
Being overweight is stressful enough, you get your average mockery among friends and life is not any better on the street either. However the stress of obesity at a cellular level explains why the incidence of diabetes Type 2 is more prevalent in the obese.
Insulin helps cells to take up glucose from the bloodstream, storing it and convert it to energy for the body. According to Associate Professor Matthew Watt, leader of a research team at Monash University in Australia, in the obese individuals the liver and muscles become desensitized to insulin due to a protein secreted by fat cells. In an attempt to fix this problem, the cells being deprived of insulin – a message is sent to the pancreas to produce more insulin because the first batch didn’t get to the cells. Thus the pancreas goes into overdrive, eventually slowing down and stopping insulin production.
Two more researchers got to the same conclusion, yet with two other proteins: Resistin protein researched by Morris F. White, Ph.D., of the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, and Endoplasmic reticulum studied by Dr. Gokhan Hotamisligil, professor of genetics at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Psychological Stress of Obesity. Related to Cause of Diabetes Type 2
Even if still in its infancy, the study of stress connected to various diseases such as cancer and diabetes is very real. According to a 2010 study from the Center of Research on Psychology in Somatic Diseases (CoRPS) in the Netherlands, emotional stress and the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus are linked.
The results suggest that not only depression and emotional stress are associated with an increased risk for the development of type 2 diabetes but also anxiety, sleeping problems, anger, and hostility.
Prevent Obesity and Diabetes with Brown Fat
Many obese diabetics or just the obese might say they get fat even from drinking water, yet the whole scientific community has done the math and came up with an amazing find that is unfortunately disregarded or just not reaching the ears of the ones who should take action. The major find was in the diet and lifestyle of the obese.
Even if each individual has a slightly different process (slower or faster) when it comes to digestion and storing fat, we usually adapt to the lifestyle and food that we have available and put on our tables.
It’s that simple – yet that hard! Nutritionists support the idea of eating foods that were grown in the area you live in. The food on the dinner table will differ if you live in New York, in Colombia, Kenya, Russia or Australia yet the same rules will apply:
If our homo sapiens ancestors processed the energy and fat from food that was locally grown (meat and vegetables) these can be the key to the proper functioning of our bodies as well. You can, however, indulge in an African dark chocolate or sushi and other not-local products from time to time, just bear in mind that processed food consumption has never been supported by specialists in nutrition.
Furthermore, the recent finding about the brown fat effect on the diminishing of white fat is gaining momentum. Scientists have shown that the two type of fat have separate functions: Brown fat generates heat by burning calories. White fat on the other hand is the result of the body’s mechanism of storing excess calories. Yet the miracle brown fat (currently under promising research) is also referred to as the ”good fat” because researchers say it might play a key role in keeping people fit. Since the first studies were published on the subject even if it sparked some controversies, the benefits of exercise to produce brown fat that in turn diminishing white fat are quite popular. Furthermore, obese individuals have less brown fat than fit people.
As far as the saturated fat is concerned– this compound of processed food has been mistakenly blamed for the extra white fat on our bodies for ages, while for the past ten years the researchers have debunked this myth – most processed foods contain both saturated fat and high carb levels thus all these combined factors are adding inches to the waist and thighs.
You too can live a longer and a happier life if you make a minimal effort to upgrade your fridge with healthy foods that are in sync with the area you live in. Gastric surgery and SGIT metabolic surgery are a last resort to tackle both obesity and diabetes but you needn’t let it get to that extreme point.
