Good Morning to All,
(Note to JM)--
I think you sent me a private note, but for some reason, it was blank when 
opened.  Please re-send it. I'd love to read it.:)
I do want to offer a small follow-up to my comments last night on this topic...
I neither diagnose nor prescribe from this vantage point.  To do so, would be 
reckless to the point of being criminal.  I offered a couple of general 
recommendations  about Dave's situation--beginning with a comprehensive 
evaluation by qualified health professionals.
As to breathwork..  I think it has immense value for many  people, including 
myself. When practiced routinely, it can have intense  effects on the body and 
mind. However, there are indeed  conditions wherein breath work is not advised 
nor recommended without supervision  or monitoring.  To include:
--Some cardiac conditions (especially undiagnosed)
-- Hypertensive  conditions not well controlled or not advised based on 
prescription drug use.  
--Psychological traumas or psychiatric conditions unless supervised
--Stroke and /or brain injury patients without supervision
The list goes on.. My point is that mis-information about health conditions  
and treatment protocols  are pervasive, especially on the internet.  
To be clear, I am not at all directing that comment to JM  or anyone else 
here.  I am  saying that each individual should seek face-to-face guidance on 
any health complaint with a qualified professional, to review treatment options.
Nuff said...
I'm off to Asia in a week or so.  My best to all here..

Hi JM,
 Stress the mind is the cause of the OCD.
Please share  why you believe this is true.
