Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) affects 2%–5% of people. Males are more likely than females to develop OCD. Obsessions occur when someone feels that they need to resist an urge such as touching something, counting things or saying certain words in order not to be punished by God for some wrongdoing. Compulsions are behaviors done over and over again without regard for their effect on others or themselves because it helps lessen anxiety about performing them. Common compulsions include excessive hand washing, hoarding objects, checking things multiple times before throwing them away, repeating prayers for hours at a time and extreme fears about germs causing illness even though there is little evidence this actually happens often enough to cause obsessive-compulsive disorders. People with chronic diseases are also much more likely than healthy individuals to have these problems because it plays into their worry system at an unconscious level which then causes health problems because the body’s energy channels aren’t being used effectively enough through treatment programs don’t usually address these underlying issues directly so they just focus on teaching people how not do whatever compulsion is being experienced but never address what caused it in the first place nor offer suggestions
