I second your recommendations. OCD can be quite challenging to turn around. 
Zazen or any Buddhist or other meditations might well he helpful, but 
medication and/or psychotherapy should possibly be primary - if one possesses 
the resources. It is be advisable to consult with Western medical and 
psychological professionals in this matter - and take heed of their advice.
