Homeopathic Remedies For Bedwetting Or Nocturnal Enuresis

Homeopathy for bedwetting in children

Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis is the unconscious wetting of bed during sleep.  It is a very common problem especially in young children especially those aged 6 years old and below and in some cases can even last into the teenage years.  Generally bedwetting is all part of the natural development and growing up process and most children will usually grow out of it eventually.  In most cases, bedwetting is never a sign of any deeper emotional or medical problems.

There are some rare cases where the causes of bedwetting may include:

  • a bladder infection especially when the bedwetting come on rather quickly, urine is a cloudy pink and there is a burning sensation during urination.
  • the onset of a bacterial or viral infection especially when the bedwetting happens spontaneously and the child seems to sleep either more fitfully or deeply than normal.
  • a kidney imbalance especially when there are symptoms of tendency to easily get cold, the child feels cold when touch, looks fatigued or pale, is low in appetite and/or sleeps more deeply than usual.
  • food allergies especially when there are symptoms of the child getting sweaty and hot at night, has a tendency towards hyperactivity, have dark circles under the eyes.  The food allergens may cause irritation to the bladder walls making it difficult to hold in urine.

All the same, children will surely feel guilty and embarrassed about making their bed wet.  Bedwetting can be a hindrance and become an obstacle when they want to stay overnight at their friend’s house.  Bedwetting also adds stress to parents.  Aside from having to clean the bed sheets constantly, parents will often feel bad and helpless for their children.

Bedwetting actually runs in the families.  Children who tend to wet their bed will often have a relative who suffered from bedwetting too.  If both their parents also had bedwetting problems, it is highly likely that their kid will suffer from it too.

Never shout or punish your children when they wet their bed to avoid making the situation worse.  Comfort them, assure them that it is not their fault and let them know that bedwetting is a natural part of growing up and that it will eventually stop one day.  Always praise them whenever there are any dry nights.

Homeopathic remedies are very effective in quickly reducing bedwetting problems and promoting the children’s self-esteem.
