Existing research demonstrates that obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a multifactorial condition that is influenced by genetics and environmental risk factors. First-line treatment of OCD is typically a combination of an antidepressant medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. However, SSRI treatments for OCD yields benefit to approximately only 40-60% of patients and has been found to cause adverse side effects. There has been an emerging interest in the use of nutritional and plant-based interventions to treat OCD, including N-acetylcysteine, inositol, and probiotics. This webinar will discuss the research evaluating its clinical utility, and how to incorporate adjuvant therapies to minimize medication side effects while enhancing treatment outcomes.
