Obessions and brain. What is the purpose of serotonin?
Obsession are most common symptoms of obsessive coumpulsive disorder. Many people don’t realize the truth behind the science. Obsessions usually spend a lot of brain’s resources and neurotrasmitters like serotonin. Chronic stress, fear and anxiety only worsen the problem to a level where individual experience obsessions that may occur for a long period of time. It is important to heal yourself with the right information and avoid any kind of synthetic medication which are known around the world to only swept your true problems under the doormat.
The human brain is the center of the nervous system. It is located in the head, usually close to the primary sensory organs for senses as sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. The brain is the most complex organ of our body. The cerebral cortex in a typical human is estimated to contain around 15 to 33 billion neurons, each connected by synapses to several thousand other neurons.
Our brain works properly only without medication
The main function of the brain is to perform centralized control over the other organs of the body. The brain acts on the rest of the body either by generating certain patterns of muscle activity or by driving secretion of chemicals called hormones. This centralized control allows fast and coordinated responses to changes in the environment.
You probably asked yourself what is actually going on in the brain when you are dealing with obsessive compulsive disorder. You know that medical field uses various types of anti-depressants to treat anxiety disorders. They prescribe selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRI such as Prozac, Luvox, Zoloft and others. These drugs act on serotonin by blocking its reuptake by brain neurons, thus leaving more of this chemical in the pathways of the brain’s neurotransmitter network.
Antidepressants help you increase the levels of available serotonin in the central nervous system. On average, people taking such medications can only expect a small reduction of their symptoms, which clearly proves they have not solved their problems, thus all of their behavioral patterns still remain in their mind unchanged.
With such medications you only extend the time period required for your complete recover, because all your problems are just swept under the doormat. Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that carry impulses from one nerve cell to another. They behave abnormally in the affected areas of the brain with people who suffer from OCD. It is important to raise your serotonin levels completely naturally. (1)
Our brains needs natural food not chemistry. It is not coincidence that walnuts are rare type of foods that contains melatonin, the same hormone that is produced in hypothalamus in our brain which regulates hundreds of body functions like quality and deep sleep. Walnuts also contain naturally occurred omega 3 fatty acids. Our Brain are naturally structured with omega 3 in the highest amount compared to any other organs. Walnuts also have similar structure to our brain which beneficially influence to overall health. Another excellent brain regenerative agent is saffron.

What is serotonin?
Serotonin is one of the most important neurotransmitters that impacts multiple functions of the central nervous system including mood, sleep, sexuality, and appetite. Serotonin may also promote cell regeneration. Regulating serotonin is playing a major role in the treatment of OCD, depression, anxiety and other disorders. We have to be aware of the fact, that you cannot increase your serotonin level easily with natural methods. (2)
Imagine that you are regulating serotonin level in your brain with medications or naturally with appropriate methods. Obviously if you select the first and the easiest choice, you are likely to suffer from various side effects and notice deterioration of your mind abilities on a long term. My advise is to stay away from synthetic medication. Abandon them, refuse them. There has been a lot of studies done which prove that psychiatric drugs will only make harm to your brain and entire body along with immune system functions. Always find natural alternatives which are universal remedies for any disease. There are no people on this planet who healed themselves from psychiatric drugs, they only leave the problems under the doormat. Being drugged means that you cannot express yourself as other people, which is the reason why new health problems usually develop after consumption of ineffective psychiatric drugs.
If you select the second choice like I previously mentioned, you have done the right decision which has no side effects but requires time and effort to achieve decent results. I have worked with lots of people who were on medications for years and it is almost ten times harder to work with people on drugs than the ones who prefer natural way of treatment. The perception and abilities for obtaining new patterns are very poor at people who use antipsychotic medications.
Low serotonin responsible for obsessions
The main reason for occurrence of OCD behavior in terms of physical aspect presents low level of serotonin. As you may know, your neurons receive information from sensory organs and share the information with other neurons or send it to motor organs. In most cases neurons communicate with each other. They need certain power for normal operation which is obtained from brain chemicals. If you are experiencing low level of serotonin, your negative emotions or stressful situations usually drain out serotonin entirely, which consequently cause intensive obsessions and compulsions. The longer period of time you repeat certain tasks, the more you fortify new habits. These negative formulas operate completely subconsciously, similar as they would be on autopilot. Thus, you need to remove each pattern individually to reduce the number of interconnected formulas that cause obsessions.
Why is low serotonin linked with OCD?
Low serotonin is the main reason that something inside your body is spending a lot of resources. Answer is very simple. Chronic stress, anxiety and fear are the main cause for low serotonin.
Solution is to replace several patterns that cause mental exhaustion
Presuppose that you have available around 120 units of psychic power each day. Your subconscious mind usually drains around 80 units due to hundreds of formulas that operates completely automatically. That clearly shows that you have only 40 units of energy available for your conscious routine tasks. When you manage to remove several patterns that cause exhaustion of your primary functions, you manage to raise
up the volume of psychic power for the important tasks. This example illustrates the picture how particular behavioral patterns influence on psychic abilities and overall mental condition.
Green, Natural and Universal solution to all mental problems
My conclusion is to consume healthy food, avoid all types of sugars to heal any mental disease. Engage yourself in daily physical activities that are performed outdoor on a fresh air. Avoid fitness clubs and other closed spaced areas because you will never find true benefits of oxygen. Diet and oxygen creates a tremendous benefits to our mind and overall health. When you achieve relief of stress, accept meditation as your primary homework every day for couple of minutes to heal your mind. My advice is to never trust conventional nor alternative medicine although both also have positive treatments and remedies. Always find natural way to cure all of your problems. Nobody healed their OCD with shortcut or quick and easy solutions. Cure for OCD requires wide approach with different subjects which synergically bring desired results to your home. Buddha said that do not believe anything no matter where you read it or who said it, no matter if I said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. This completely confirms my statement that conventional and alternative medicine should always be doubt, no matter if the expert is an PhD, qualified alternative therapist or well known nutritionist, before you will make your final decision for your own mind.
Obsessive compulsive disorder is a disease that will never be cured with only single pack of medications or some newly discovered psychiatric drugs. OCD needs complete change of individual’s life style, habits, diet, hygiene and behavioral patterns in order to permanently achieve success.
