When a child wets bed during sleep it becomes more embarrassing not only for the child but also to the parents. There are many young adults also suffering more with this problem. Medical term for this problem is "Nocturnal Enuresis".

What is the reason?

       A baby's bladder fills to a set point, then automatically contracts and empties. As the child gets older, the nervous system develops. The child's brain begins to get messages from the filling bladder and begins to send messages to the bladder to automatically emptying until the child learns the time and place to void. Young people who experience night-time wetting tend to be physically and emotionally normal. Most cases probably result from a mix of factors.

    Recurrent urinary tract infection and constipation are the commonest cause. Many children suffer from burning micturation, which contribute an important factor for bed-wetting.

Slower Physical Development
    In children bed-wetting may be the result of a small bladder capacity, long sleeping periods and under-development of the body's alarms that signal a full or empty bladder.

Excessive Output of urine during sleep
    Normally, the body produces a hormone that can slow the making of urine. This hormone is called Antidiuretic hormone.The body normally produces more ADH at night so that the need to urinate is lower. If the body doesn't produce enough ADH at night, the making of urine may not be slowed down, leading to bladder filling. If a child does not sense the bladder filling and awaken to urinate, then wetting will occur.

    Anxiety is the most commonest cause for bed-wetting. Such events include angry parents, unfamiliar social situations and overwhelming family events such as the birth of a brother or sister. Incontinence itself is an anxiety-causing event.

    Certain inherited genes appear to contribute to incontinence. If both parents were bed-wetters, a child may have chance of being a bed-wetter also. Studies suggest that other undetermined genes also may be involved in incontinence.

Structural Problems
    A small number of cases of incontinence are caused by physical problems in the urinary system in children. In these cases, the incontinence can appear as a constant dribbling of urine.

     A child may not want to use the toilet at school or may not want to be interrupted at enjoyable activities, so he or she ignores the body's signal of a full bladder. These children often develop urinary tract infections, leading to an irritable or overactive bladder.

Bladder training consists of exercises for strengthening and coordinating muscles of the bladder and urethra and may help controlling urination. These techniques teach the child to anticipate the need to urinate and prevent urination when away from a toilet. Drink less fluid before going to sleep. Avoid coffee.

How to treat?

  Homoeopathy offers wonderful cures for Bed-wetting problems. I had treated plenty of cases with definite improvement. The success is high in our treatment. This marvellous cure is brought only by the similar and dynamic approach, which is the cardinal principle of homoeopathy. The very instinct often makes a practitioner to get on with his treatment of seizures. Homoeopathic approach is entirely different from other systems and it is the real medical system for healing!
