OCD

Rucklidge JJ.


Department of Psychology, University of Canterbury, Private Bag 4800, Christchurch, New Zealand


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) affects 0.5-2% of young people many of whom are resistant to conventional treatments.


This case study describes an 18-year-old male with OCD who first underwent cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for a 1-year period with a modest response (his OCD had shifted from severe to moderate). Within a year, his anxiety had deteriorated back to the severe range and he now had major depression.


He then entered an ABAB design trial using a nutritional formula consisting mainly of minerals and vitamins (together, known as micronutrients). After 8 weeks on the formula, his mood was stabilized, his anxiety reduced, and his obsessions were in remission. The treatment was then discontinued for 8 weeks, during which time his obsessions and anxiety worsened and his mood dropped. Reintroduction of the formula again improved the symptoms.


This case illustrates the importance of considering the effect micronutrients have on mental illness.
