Product Description

Review

"A remarkable achievement! This book will make a world of difference in the lives of people with OCD."--Eric Hollander, M.D., Compulsive, Impulsive & Anxiety Disorders Program, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine

Product Description

An estimated 5 million Americans suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and live diminished lives in which they are compelled to obsess about something or to repeat a similar task over and over. Traditionally, OCD has been treated with Prozac or similar drugs. The problem with medication, aside from its cost, is that 30 percent of people treated don't respond to it, and when the pills stop, the symptoms invariably return.

In Brain Lock, Jeffrey M. Schwartz presents a simple four-step method for overcoming OCD that is so effective, it's now used in academic treatment centers throughout the world. Proven by brain-imaging tests to actually alter the brain's chemistry, this method doesn't rely on psychopharmaceuticals. Instead, patients use cognitive self-therapy and behavior modification to develop new patterns of response to their obsessions. In essence, they use the mind to fix the brain. Using the real-life stories of actual patients, Brain Lock explains this revolutionary method and provides readers with the inspiration and tools to free themselves from their psychic prisons and regain control of their lives.

Implementing the strategies require a lot of patience and hard-work. The book cannot do magic, but the strategies are highly effective. Personally I think that following these techniques will change brain chemistry.
It's a best substitute for Behavior Therapist, no doubt about it.
A must buy book, if you or your loved ones have OCD, but as always he/she should be ready to hard-work, should have patience, and ready to accept the change.
Thanks for Jeffrey for such a great book!

This is one of the best self help books I have ever read. This should be of benefit to a great number of people who have been struggling with this problem. The least I can say is that I benefited a lot by reading this book.

Because the theory is very small and simple. So the writer discusses the idea repetitively. If you have OCD, Please read this book, you must be cured.
