Bed Wetting Treatment

Bed wetting is one of the most common problems in children. This is a condition in which children are unaware of wetting their bed while sleeping. The problem is also called nocturnal enuresis. In such cases, a child can wet his or her bed regularly or after a gap of two to three days. When the problem of bed wetting persists after five years, then it requires medical attention.

  • Wetting of bed during sleep is the predominant symptom.
  • Pain during urination is another symptom.
  • Constipation is also common among children who have the problem of enuresis.
  • Delay in neurological development is the chief reason behind bed wetting. In such cases, the brain of a child learns the proper functioning of the bladder after the usual time.
  • Some children wet their bed as the ability of staying dry develops later in them.
  • In some cases, bed wetting is found to be a genetic disorder.
  • Reduced rate of antidiuretic hormone production can also be a cause for this problem.
Practicing some of the sitting and standing asanas can help to cure bedwetting. Some of the popular asana include:
  • Shavasana
  • Gomukhasana
  • Ardha Matsyendrasana
  • Bhadrasana
  • Trikonasana
  • Pashchimottanasana
  • Chakrasana
  • Baddha Padmasana
  • Garudasana
  • Matsyasana
Retention control training or practice to postpone urination by few minutes can be effective. The time for retention should increase gradually. With this exercise one would be able to strengthen muscles, which control urination. This would also increase bladder capacity.

  • Herbs like Pulsatilla, corn silk, lycopodium and causticum can reduce bedwetting.
  • Eating one teaspoon of raisins and two teaspoon of walnut halves can help to combat the problem of bedwetting.
  • Herbal tea, which is made from Bearberry or Warmwood, Horsetail and Oakbark can be useful.
  • Inner thigh massage with wort oil of St. John can also help.
  • Good results can be obtained if a person consumes half a tablet of Shilajitvadi Vati with warm milk every day.
  • Chandraprabha Vati is also an effective remedy for this problem.
  • One to two Neo tablets or Charak, consumed twice a day for two or three months can help check the problem of bedwetting.
One should not punish the child. Criticizing or nagging can worsen the situation. Parents should not allow the child to consume beverages before bedtime. Children should be taught to empty their bladder before they go to bed.
