Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment

fern

Advanced Natural Medicine has wide-ranging clinical applications in mental health care and psychological conditions. In fact in my 20 years of experience, conducting over 35,000 consultations I have found the most deeply acting & most effective system of medicine for OCD to be Advanced Homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy originally became very well-known because of the excellent results which were achieved in Homeopathic Psychiatric Hospitals. Darren Grech incorporates the very latest methods in cutting edge OCD treatment using the latest in Natural Medicine. The treatment is fully individualised as no two people’s OCD is exactly the same and needs a different treatment.

What is obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a condition where you have recurring obsessions, compulsions, or both.

What are obsessions?

Obsessions are unpleasant thoughts, images, or urges that keep coming into your mind. Obsessions are not simply worries about your life problems. Common obsessions include:
Fears about contamination with dirt, germs, viruses (eg HIV), etc.
Worries about doors being unlocked, fires left on, causing harm to someone, etc.
Intrusive thoughts or images of swearing, blasphemy, sex, someone harmed, etc.
Fear of making a mistake or behaving badly.
A need for exactness in how you order or arrange things.
A compulsion to collect things that others might throw away (hoarding).
These are examples. Obsessions can be about all sorts of things. Obsessive thoughts can make you feel anxious or disgusted. You normally try to ignore or suppress obsessive thoughts; for example, you may try to think other thoughts to neutralise the obsession.

What are compulsions?

Compulsions are thoughts or actions that you feel you must do or repeat. Usually the compulsive act is in response to an obsession. A compulsion is a way of trying to deal with the distress or anxiety caused by an obsession.For example, you may wash your hands every few minutes in response to an obsessional fear about germs. Another example is you may keep on checking that doors are locked, in response to the obsession about doors being unlocked. Other compulsions include repeated cleaning, counting, touching, saying words silently, arranging and organising – but there are others.

Basically the factors which cause disease (on any level, physical, emotional & mental) are ;

  • our inherited weaknesses (genetic),
  • our life experiences and events which have an impact on us,
  • our indiscretions in diet and lifestyle, and
  • iatrogenic processes (suppressing the body’s response with drugs).

It is the combination of all the above factors which contribute to one’s illness and mental conditions are no exception. Homoeopathy can be an extremely effective system of medicine for OCD which considers all these factors. It is a system of medicine which truly takes into consideration all symptoms which effect an individual on multiple levels; physical, emotional and mental.

During a consultation apart from how you feel physically, a complete understanding of how you are emotionally and mentally is explored. In some cases there are very strong mental and emotional symptoms that might include anger, anxieties, worries, fears and depression etc. All these symptoms are covered in my homoeopathic prescription and a treatment plan is given to help reduce their intensity and recurrence.

Because of this holistic approach (also incorporating the latest in Botanical Medicine), you will often feel much better within yourself, AND gain other improvements in physical problems you may have as well. A patient for example, may come for depression as their main complaint and also suffer from migraines. During treatment, it will often be discovered that the depression & the migraines become greatly improved.

Homoeopathic medicine can be taken in conjunction with antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs. Most patients who come for treatment are able to gradually & safely reduce their medications. Further information regarding this process will be discussed during the consultation.

TESTIMONIALS

OCD Treatment

I would like to briefly tell our story about our son who developed OCD not long after whooping cough. Our son found it very awkward talking to his psychologist and after 4 months of therapy we found no improvements. We heard about Darren Grech through a friend’s recommendation. Darren was able to prescribe a medicine which dramatically helped his OCD.

We continued seeing Darren for another 6 months and we were happy to say his OCD has completely improved & we are very happy with the outcomes.

– Mrs EW, Sydney

Wonderful Help for My Ulcerative Colitis

I am an actress who had to put my travels on hold due to severe Ulcerative Colitis. I heard about Darren Grech’s successful treatment of this condition so I had to start his natural treatment. It has helped me manage my condition so well I could perform well and obtain a normally functioning digestive system. I highly recommend Darren Grech’s treatment for UC. It is a wonderful complementary treatment to the main drug treatments.(*) – J S. USA

For over 25 years I had suffered from diarrhea. Every morning of my life I would wake up and then have to race to the toilet with sudden urgency and griping pain. I would have to return to the toilet about 5 to 10 times till 12 noon. This ruled my life. I have seen so many specialists and they could never find what was wrong.

I then decided to see Darren Grech as a friend recommend him. I decided to give this a go.  Its been excellent & I’m very happy with the results. This has changed my life and I would recommend anyone to see Darren. (*) – KS, Perth

(*) DISCLAIMER: results may vary from person to person.

 

I would like to recommend Darren to anyone who suffers from digestive disease. I had battled with this for many years and been told by doctors that I would just have to live with it. After being on a holiday and having my stomach continually acting up I decided I did not want to live with it any more and decided to look for an alternative treatment. Lucky for me I came across Darren. The treatment has been great. (*)

For more than 8 years, my condition was terrible… bloating, painful cramps, having to go sometimes 15 times in one day.I originally tried so many products with only a little relief so I decided to see somebody who was recommended.

I highly recommend any enquirer to see Darren. I didn’t feel uncomfortable talking about these subjects at all, it was very easy.(*)

Some general TESTIMONIALS – WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT DARREN GRECH

TESTIMONIALS

Medical family recommends Darren Grech

As a Registered Nurse, and with my father a General Practitioner, my mother also a Registered Nurse, I had thought science and conventional medicine was the only rational way to treat illnesses. That was until my husband got glandular fever that progressed into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I also had signs of early menopause and chronically suffered flu’s with almost every period I had.

Our two children had typical infections that just kept recurring. I was recommended to Darren by a very reputable chiropractor and have not looked back since. My husband was made well enough to return to work, my menopause was reversed and in time I fell pregnant with beautiful twin boys. I have not thankfully had a bout of flu in a few years now. We do not need to use antibiotics.

My children and I enjoy good health.

I believe the best advice I could give to anyone trying homeopathy is to really, really know symptoms, in detail, know your body and any changes so the best remedy can be given. I also find it hard to understand why people give up using it if it doesn’t cure it immediately, but are happy to go the doctor 2, 3 or even 4 times to try a different antibiotic or blood pressure tablet!  We found homeopathy so helpful we recommended to our friends and family. We much prefer using natural medicine that allow the body to self – heal with no side-effects,  than synthetic medicines that suppress and weaken our body’s immune system, often causing very unpleasant side effects. We also feel comfortable using homeopathy, the only alternative therapy recognised by The World Health Organisation as valid. The British Royal Family and David Beckham also use homeopathy. Also, compared with other natural therapies, homeopathy is very affordable.

For more chronic conditions , or ones that have been present for a long period of time, homeopathy will show improvements within a short period of time, but usually requires treatment for a longer period of time. I am glad that I persisted and didn’t give up on using the medicines for chronic conditions, especially the hormonal imbalances and enlarged tonsils(my daughter had). *

Help for my Arthritis

I have suffered chronic arthritis in my fingers and hands for around 5 years, and in my knee and elbow more recently over the last 3 years.

Today I am typing this article & am sincerely happy with the progress I’ve made on Darren Grech’s treatment.

So together with Darren’s natural medicine, here I am on this amazing journey into the future; one that just gets better every day. *

At last! I am feeling better

After trying doctors and a few naturopath’s, I have finally found someone to help me!

I have been suffering for many years with IBS/digestive problems and urinary tract infections. I was getting desperate and thought I would do some googling.

I found Darren’s site and decided to make an appointment. Thank goodness I did as I can’t believe that i started to have results soon after commencing treatment.

I, like others have also recommended Darren to my family and friends as I am so thrilled to be having relief from long term suffering. *

He prescribed me natural medicine which helped me greatly. I highly recommend any enquirer to see Darren. I didn’t feel uncomfortable talking about these subjects at all, it was very easy. *

BACK PAIN (Sacro-illiac)

My first consultation with Darren was about 8 years ago. I had suffered from lower back pain for several years causing many sleepless nights. I had just about every scan done and multiple massage sessions to try and alleviate the pain but to no avail. As a last resort, I decided to try Darren Grech’s natural medicine treatment.

I would without any hesitation recommend his treatment and have since referred my friends and my partner to see Darren. *

2 YRS OF SEVERE SCIATICA 

The first time I saw Darren Grech was the time I still needed a walking frame. I remember how hard it was carrying all my MRI scans with the walking frame. My sciatica pain was so bad that I could hardly ever sit down & I had to stand for the entire visit.

I was very surprised that Darren Grech’s natural medicine treatment also helps with problems like this. I definitely recommend Darren’s treatment. *

HYPOTHYROID CONDITION

I would like to thanks Darren Grech for successfully treating my thyroid which was underactive. I was getting extremely tired and gaining weight so i had a blood test which showed my thyroid was underactive. I researched the subject and came across Darren Grech’s natural treatment. I am glad i went to him for treatment  & recommend him.*

SINUS HEADACHES- VERY HAPPY WITH TREATMENT

Darren is a very caring holistic practitioner whom I would highly commend. I am very happy with his treatment*

Karen Saunders, Sydney

This is the best thing I’ve done

I battled with severe thrush for the last 10 years. I tried literally every conventional treatment & product on the market and they only helped a fraction. I saw my natural medicine practitioner, Darren Grech, and he has really helped this chronic problem which was truly depressing.

his is the best thing I’ve done. I highly recommend this particular natural treatment. *

– Mrs CM, Sydney

* Disclaimer : results may vary from person to person.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Having survived a life-threatening virus I wasn’t feeling ‘right’ –  no energy, was experiencing monthly migraines, couldn’t concentrate, felt very disconnected from the real world – despite the fact that GPs and specialists told me there was no more they could do for me; that was when I went looking for an alternative option.

For the previous twenty years I had suffered from disturbed sleep/insomnia and also lived with severe hay fever. All this was nearly a year ago – I still have regular appointments and now, thanks to Darren, I’ve got my life back. I really can’t recommend him highly enough. *

– Kath Goodman, Perth

* Disclaimer : results may vary from person to person.

I definitely recommend his treatment.

My heel was giving me a lot of trouble for over 6 months and was forced to limp around. I had previous injections which helped a bit for a few days but the pain kept coming back. My work partner recommended I see Darren Grech. He prescribed me natural medicine & I definitely recommend his treatment. *

Mr PW, Sydney.

* Disclaimer : results may vary from person to person.

I have found my overall health has improved

After having recurring severe genital warts for the last 6 years after countless creams & repeated cryosurgical removal I was fed up. My doctor said regrowth was very common and that I would have to keep getting them removed ‘as there is no cure’. I then consulted with Darren. He was able to prescribe an internal natural medicine which he explained would help my immune system for this condition which has been very successful.

I have found my overall health has improved, including my Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

I thoroughly recommend his ability! *

Mrs ED, Perth

Injury Induced Shoulder Pain

I am a keen cyclist and severely strained my anterior deltoids over 3 years ago. The pain was constant and made sleeping very difficult as I could not find any position which was pain free. 3 months of the most advanced Physiotherapy did not help.

I saw Darren Grech about this. I thoroughly recommend his treatment.  *

– Mr DN. Perth

* Disclaimer : results may vary from person to person.

I would like to recommend Darren to anyone who suffers from IBS.

I had battled with IBS for many years and been told by doctors that I would just have to live with it. After being on a holiday and having my stomach continually acting up I decided I did not want to live with it any more and decided to look for an alternative treatment. Lucky for me I came across Darren Grech.

It is wonderful to no longer have to worry where the nearest toilet is every time I go out. The treatment has helped me in many ways.

I can’t recommend Darren enough. It has made a huge difference to my life. *

Bev – Perth

A Good Treatment for Panic Attacks

After taking medication, an appetite suppressant prescribed by my GP, I began to experience severe & frequent panic attacks literally after the first dose. This was a side effect from the medicine I was told by my GP and he said I must stop it at once.

I did stop it, however, my panic attacks did not stop, they continued for 6 months. This was when I decided to see Darren. He prescribed me natural medicine, which helped me very much.

– Mrs AP, Syndey.

* Disclaimer : results may vary from person to person.

What a remarkable result I have received

Change of life, Depression, Anxiety and Panic attacks, Vomiting, Flushes, gall bladder problems, intestinal problems, sleeplessness and severe migraines.

It is approximately 16 months since 1st finding my natural medicine practitioner, Darren Grech.

Firstly we addressed the depression and Migraines which we have had a very good response with and I continue on this path when there may be the now occasional threat.. So I have gone from a person who had migraines almost every day and vomiting, depression, Hot flushes anxiety to a fully functional person.

In all fields of trade and profession there really are the enlightened and unenlightened, personally I can only say follow the successes. I truly thank the heavens for guiding me safely into the knowledgeable hands of a wonderful practitioner, Darren.

What a remarkable result I have received with Darren’s guidance. *

Haemorrhoid Treatment

After a 36 hour labour I was left with 6 very painful hemorrhoids.
4 months of western medicine did hardly anything to relieve the pain.
I went through 8 tubes of prescription cream, to no avail.

I dreaded going to the toilet and decided to look elsewhere for help.

I was referred to consult with Darren Grech.
I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Now I know what I’ll be using if they come back with future pregnancies.
Thank you Darren! *
