Psychiatric treatment (drugs)
1. No cure for OCD. Patients need life long treatment.
Homeopathy has excellent curative treatment for OCD. A few months treatment is sufficient.
2. ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) is the essential part of OCD treatment. It is very agonizing for patients to prevent response after exposure, especially when it is repeated again and again. Moreover, it is not curative.
Absolutely no need for ERP training. Due to continuous decrease in obsessions and anxiety level, patients overcome their OCD in a natural way.
