Dear doctor, I am suffering from OCD since last my childhood. In between, I took treatment , and 2 -3 psychologist also. After treatment I was feeling good and can say 80% recovered. But presently I am feeling same problem again. Last treatment I took in 2006. I have a problem only that is touching to any items by any fix numbers like 6 or 9. If I do not touch then I feel that my work will not be done correctly or something can be happen which will not be in favour of me. When I go to road or during walking in my house also. Thought comes that I should go from the particular side of any items, lines or any other items which is kept there or marked line also. When I go outside from the house, I look the photo of god every time. Cleaning, hand washing and check the lock etc. Is not the problem with me. Only touch the items by 6 or 9 times and during walking, walk on a particular side according to thought come in my mind that time. During last treatment doctor advise me tab. Sertima 100 2 times in a day. Please advise me better treatment that can help me to cure from this problem. Best regards,
The coconut plant is an extremely versatile plant. No part of it goes waste. The whole fruit is used from its succulent flesh to its water everything is utilized. Coconut is in fact filled with various nutrients. It has many health benefits. The coconut is now seen as a superfood.

Coconuts contain insoluble carbohydrates. As the body cannot digest the fibre, it cannot retain any calories and does not affect blood sugar levels.
- Since coconuts contain insoluble fibres, they do not raise glucose levels. Coconuts, thus have low glycaemic index.
- Sweet cravings are lessened and insulin secretion is improved. Blood sugar has better utilization. Coconut lowers any growth in blood sugar, thus reducing cravings.
- Coconut oil is beneficial to fight tooth decay. It fights the bacteria and the mouth bugs that give rise to dental caries.
