Beyond the Needles: Unwinding Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Symptoms with Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine in Beaverton Oregon
The Crippling Clutches of OCD: Recognizing the Symptoms
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can feel like a relentless puppeteer, yanking your thoughts and actions around like marionette strings. Intrusive, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) become your unwelcome companions, driving you to perform repetitive behaviors (compulsions) in a desperate attempt to quell the anxiety they trigger.
Common OCD Symptoms:
- Excessive handwashing or cleaning
- Repetitive checking of doors, locks, or appliances
- Counting or arranging things in a specific way
- Unwanted and disturbing thoughts
- Fear of harm to yourself or others
Living with OCD can be a debilitating experience, isolating you from loved ones and hindering your daily life. But there is hope.
A Beacon of Hope: Traditional Asian Medicine for OCD Relief
While traditional Western medicine often relies on pharmaceutical interventions for OCD, Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, offers a unique and effective alternative: Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM).
TAM takes a holistic approach, viewing the body and mind as interconnected. It recognizes that imbalances in the body’s energy flow (qi) can manifest as various physical and mental health issues, including OCD.
TAM’s Multifaceted Approach to OCD:
- Acupuncture: Hair-thin needles are inserted at specific points on the body to stimulate qi flow, promoting balance and reducing anxiety.
- Herbal Medicine: Dr. Sohn prescribes personalized herbal formulas tailored to your needs, addressing underlying imbalances and alleviating OCD symptoms.
- Dietary and Lifestyle Guidance: TAM emphasizes healthy living practices like mindfulness, stress management, and proper nutrition to support overall well-being.
A Patient’s Perspective: Finding Peace Through TAM
“My OCD had me trapped in a cycle of fear and compulsion,” shares Sarah, a patient of Dr. Sohn’s. “After years of medication with limited success, I was ready for something different. TAM offered hope, and I’m so grateful I leaped. With Dr. Sohn’s guidance, the acupuncture and herbs have helped me manage my anxiety and compulsions, allowing me to reclaim control of my life.”
