WHAT IS OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE

DISORDER (OCD)?

Obsessive compuls ive d isorder (OCD) is a common mental heal th condit ion

where a person has obsess ive thoughts and compuls ive behaviors . I t can

af fect men, women and chi ldren and some people start hav ing symptoms

ear ly , of ten around puberty , but i t usual ly starts dur ing ear ly adulthood.

OCD can be distress ing and s igni f icant ly interfere with your l i fe , but

treatment can help you keep i t under control .

People with OCD usual ly exper ience frequent obsess ive thoughts and

compuls ive behaviors such as unwanted and unpleasant thought , image or

urge that repeatedly enters your mind, causing feel ings of anxiety , d isgust

or unease. OCD could a lso be a repet i t ive compuls ive behavior or mental

act that you feel you need to do to temporar i ly re l ieve the unpleasant

feel ings brought on by the obsess ive thought . People wi th an obsess ive fear

of being burgled may feel they need to check a l l the windows and doors are

locked several t imes before they can leave their house. Some women can

have OCD dur ing pregnancy or af ter their baby is born where the

obsess ions may inc lude worry ing about harming the baby or not ster i l i z ing

feeding bott les proper ly . Compuls ions could be th ings such as repeatedly

checking the baby is breathing.

MEDICAL TREATMENT

AT THE BALANCE

At THE BALANCE we of fer c l ients a hol ist ic approach to phys ica l and mental

heal th care. The term ́hol ist ic ́ means that our program incorporates a l l

aspects of a person l i fe and recognizes that each part of us is int imately

interconnected to a ́whole ́ so in terms of heal th care , i t recognizes that a l l

areas of a person ’s l i fe need attent ion, in order to impact on the indiv idual .

This incorporates our model of Mind, Body and L i fe .

Hol ist ic medic ine (a lso known as phys io logica l regulat ing medic ine and

Bio logica l Medic ine) treats the whole person. The pat ient ’s symptoms are

a lways considered to be the outward express ion of an under ly ing

dysfunct ion that can be remedied by st imulat ing the body ’s own regulatory

forces. We search for the root causes of the pat ient ’s d isease in order to

g ive the body a chance to heal i tse l f . This is why we g ive top pr ior i ty to

improving the pat ient ’s general metabol ism, together wi th detoxi f icat ion,

pur i f icat ion and the latest methods of immune - st imulat ion, as wel l as

other st imulat ing therapies .

THE BALANCE bio logica l medic ine a ims at strengthening the whole , so that

d iseases and suscept ib i l i ty to d isease can be overcome by the pat ient ’s own

immune system and heal ing process. For th is reason, our doctors ut i l i ze

'suppress ive ' medic ines only dur ing t imes of emergency , and not for

chronic care management , because th is type of medic ine is most ef fect ive

in acute s i tuat ions. We are a lso s lower to recommend certa in operat ions ,

preferr ing f i rst to apply our hol ist ic therapy concept .

As our pat ient , you are making a commitment to your heal th . With your

cooperat ion and the THE BALANCE staf f ’ s input of exper ience and know

how, suscept ib i l i t ies can be detected, and the course of the disease

reversed. I t i s important to note that our doctors have convent ional medical

degrees and specia l ized tra in ing in Bio logica l Medic ine, and in certa in

cases , convent ional and hol ist ic treatments wi l l be integrated.

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL WEAKNESS

AND THE ADRENAL GLAND

Adrenal fat igue is a col lect ion of s igns and symptoms, known as a syndrome,

that resul ts when the adrenal g lands funct ion below the necessary level .

Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress , i t can a lso

ar ise dur ing or af ter acute or chronic infect ions , especia l ly respiratory

infect ions such as inf luenza, bronchit is or pneumonia. . . you l ive wi th a

general sense of un-wel lness , t i redness or “grey” feel ings . People

exper iencing adrenal fat igue often have to use cof fee, colas and other

st imulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up dur ing

the day.

“The adrenal g lands respond to a l l types of stress in the same way. . . I t i s

important to know that a l l s tresses are addit ive and cumulat ive . The

number of stresses , whether or not you recognize them as stresses , the

intensi ty of each stress , and the frequency with which i t occurs p lus the

length of t ime i t is present , a l l combine to form your tota l stress load. ”

together wi th th is i t i s necessary to be aware of connect ions in the body

system:

The digest ive and g landular systems are c losely re lated to the autonomic

nervous system, which is a lso ca l led the “abdominal bra in” . I t consists of

two parts , the sympathet ic and the parasympathet ic , which control a l l our

involuntary body funct ions and must be rhythmical ly balanced with one

another for our metabol ism and immune systems to funct ion proper ly . At

RECORE we are able to measure th is balance in a unique way v ia tools that

assess what is known as Heart Rate Var iabi l i ty (HRV) .

By e l iminat ing a l l inf luencing factors (e .g . dental foc i , food a l lerg ies ,

mineral , v i tamin and trace e lement def ic iencies , e lectromagnet ic stress ,

d isorders of the autonomic nervous system, etc . more than 80% of a l l

pat ients we treat for these basic d isorders fu l ly recover . V i r tual ly a l l of our

metabol ic pat ients s igni f icant ly improve thanks to our medic ines , wi thout

hav ing to take the drugs commonly prescr ibed that involve adverse s ide

ef fects . With d iabetes pat ients , the insul in dose they need can frequent ly

be reduced. But especia l ly the qual i ty of l i fe and overal l wel lbeing improve

immensely .
