Bedwetting & Urinary Incontinence




Bedwetting is often associated with childhood. Indeed, up to one-quarter of children experience problems with nocturnal enuresis (wetting the bed at night). Most children grow out of the condition when their bladders become larger and better developed. Research suggests that bed-wetting occurs in 1 to 2 percent of adults. However, the number is probably higher. Some adults are likely embarrassed or unwilling to talk with their doctor about the problem. But living with this problem can be not only embarrassing, but also unpleasant. It can often lead to a higher probability of getting a Urinary Tract Infection. There are some methods for decreasing the incidence of bedwetting including:

  • Monitor fluid intake. Try to slow your fluid intake in the afternoon and evening. Drink more in the early morning when you can use the bathroom easily. Set limits for evening consumption.

  • Wake yourself at night. Setting an alarm for the middle of the night can help you prevent bed-wetting. Getting up once or twice a night to urinate means you won’t have as much urine if an accident occurs.

  • Make regular urinating a part of your routine. During the day, set a schedule for when you’ll urinate and stick to it. Make sure to urinate before bed, too.

  • Cut down on bladder irritants. Caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners, and sugary drinks may irritate your bladder and lead to more frequent urination.

The typical conventional treatments include: medications and/or surgery. If you would like to try a treatment that is completely non-invasive and highly successful, we offer the Laser Meridian Imprinting to remedy the problem. Most patients will see at least a drastic reduction or even elimination of symptoms within 4 – 6 treatments. The protocol for bedwetting also addresses normal urinary incontinence. Imagine what a wonderful change it would be to not have to live with the stress of bedwetting. Give us a call if you would like more information or schedule online.
