Hi Doc,

I suffer from OCD, is there any foods or diet one should adhere to to help alleviate this situation? Is it true that foods that contain Omega 3 fatty acids are good?

there's no good evidence so far that any food or chemical like Omega-3 fatty acids are good for OCD. In normal amounts they probably wou;dn't be harmful. CBT counselling is still the best non-chemical way to control OCD
