Remember that you asked this question in the alternative medicine category so I'd say fish oil. Omega-3's in fish oil have been shown to relieve OCD/anxiety and others as well if not better than Rxs. Omega-3's help with all kinds of emotional/chemical imbalances including depression.

A natural relief is claimed to be St Johns Wort is alleged to be the natural similar of Prozac. But I have got to provide you with a warning, OCD will also be managed (giving the sufferer a ordinary existence – if he/she works at it), however medicinal drugs by myself won't paintings. A combo of matters, corresponding to medicinal drugs with a view to aid decrease the anxiousness of OCD used with CBT (cognitive behavioural treatment) - The irregular worry demands to be managed given that the sufferer offers an excessive amount of credence / significance to worry of a close inconceivable series of parties. This is in which CBT will aid.

Since you asked this question in the alternative medicine category, I'm going to answer with meditation and deep breathing exercises.
