Bedwetting occurs when a person involuntarily urinates when they are sleeping. Primary Enuresis is when there has not yet been a lengthy period of being dry at night. Secondary Enuresis is when a person (child or adult) begins to wet the bed again after a prolonged period of being dry.
Bladder complications, hormone irregularity, and even sleeping disorders can all lead to chronic bedwetting in children. Once consulted with a medical practitioner, and any conventional medicine processes are implemented, your next consideration should be the use of an acupuncturist. Using a strategic approach to treatment, many acupuncturists report three out of four children are successful cured of bedwetting after ten to twelve visits. In addition, there is a very low relapse rate – often lower than the relapse rate of convention methods of healing for bedwetting in children.
Western medicine’s response
Western medicine has a range of treatment options for Enuresis depending on the diagnosis of the cause. Including Treatments include behaviourally-based interventions such as bed-wetting alarms and star charts, medications such as hormone replacement, self-esteem courses and even surgery in some cases.
How does acupuncture work
The aim of the treatment is twofold:
- To help develop the sensitivity of the nerve so that it will tell the brain when the bladder is full
- Using needles to stimulate other nerves responsible for producing the hormone which reduces the production of urine at night.
