Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD) is the most common neuropsychiatric disease which may be heritable. Healthy diet plays an important role in the life of persons who effected with OCD. There are some ways to bring a smarter diet. We know that brain have the control of every systems and functions of our body. For brain to send the signals we have to consume proper nutrient rich food that converts to energy to do work.

Your body suffering lack of serotonin when you have chronic disorder. So for increasing the level of serotonin we have to change our diet. Eating more protein which contain tryptophan gives your body more serotonin. Because proteins are made up of amino acids. Each amino acid contains tryptophan. The next step is to do some basic moments like take a walk, go for a run etc. And the other step is to find an activity that you love to do, become a part of it and participate. The following kind of changes may support other treatments too:

  • Low fat dairy products
  • Add multivitamin to your daily food
  • Brew an herbal tea to calm your nerves
  • Include a daily fish oil supplement into your diet
  • Add high-dose inositol supplements with physician supervision

Another theory regarding OCD is excessive secretion of Adrenalin on hypoglycemia. Insulin resistance occurs, when body cannot stabilize blood sugar level and which leads to the increase in production of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. This will increase anxiety. So hypoglycemic diet will decrease the sugar level and stress hormones.

Hypoglycemic diet includes
  • Rail mix with nuts, raisins and shredded wheat
  • Half portion of leftover lunch or dinner
  • Low fat cheese grated over whole grain nachos with bean, avocado and tomato salsa dips
  • Low sodium, low fat cottage cheese or unsweetened yogurt with fresh fruit
  • Low fat cheese grated over whole grain nachos with bean, avocado and tomato salsa dips
  • Peanut butter spread on cut-up banana
