Natural Remedies for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Posted by Doreen (Toronto, Canada) on 11/26/2016

I started trichotillomainia in grade 1. I am now 55.

Only once in my life since the disease have I stopped trichotillomania for 2 years. It was when my children were small and I refused to have pets for about 4 years. Then it went into remission.

Recently had a friend with demodex skin mites. Read it can cause itchiness, and people with pets have more of these mites. I wondered if the demodex mites might be partly responsible. Since Borax kills demodex mites, I started putting borax paste (mule Borax with enough water to wet) on head hair where I pulled, rubbing the gritty mixture in scalp. Have only been doing it for past 2 days, but noticed 90 percent relief in urge to pull hair.

This may only be a placebo effect, but I find it encouraging, where nothing worked me in decades.

I hope this may be of help to other who suffer from TTM

Best of wishes in life,

Doreen, a long time TTM sufferer.
