Anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are much more common than they were decades ago.  In our clinical experience, we have found that the primary cause of this increase is the high prevalence of Candida (yeast) overgrowth in industrialized countries.

What Causes Anxiety and Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (OCD)?

There are many causes of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. Much of it has to do with overexposure to several different things. some of these are;

  • antibiotics
  • chlorine in swimming pools
  • fermented foods
  • sugar
  • moldy home
  • direct pesticide exposure
  • and other exposures

These cause a gradual but sure overgrowth of yeast organisms in the body, which may not manifest until years after the exposures. Eventually, this excess produces high levels in the blood of acetaldehyde and other substances. This causes irritation to the nervous system.

What do these Chemicals Do to the Body?

This chemical irritation causes unwanted thoughts and feelings to flood the consciousness. This is because the normal inhibitory mechanisms of the brain are overwhelmed by this irritant.  This organic chemical disorder is treated by decreasing the yeast.

The other main source of these disorders, outside psychological experiences such as PTSD, is dependence on anti-anxiety medications.  Long-term use of benzodiazepines (Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, etc.) or antidepressants (Celexa, Lexapro, Cymbalta, etc.) for anxiety will eventually create dependence on those medications.  This often manifests as increased anxiety, especially when trying to get off them.

Medical treatment for Anxiety and Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (OCD)

In our clinical experience, we consistently observe rapid and significant decreases in anxiety and OCD, usually with complete resolution. Emerald Neuro Recover provides an all-natural medical procedure called NAD amino acid therapy. This treatment not only treats medical issues but is also effective for opiate and alcohol detox and substance abuse treatment.
