News - No more bedwetting
by Life Positive
Bedwetting often results in a distressed child Bedwetting is a common problem for children in their early years. Most, however, outgrow it.
Bedwetting is characterised by the lack of urinary control during sleep or day time. It results in a wet bed, which often awakens the child. It may occur a few times a week, and gradually decline in frequency until age five. Girls generally achieve control earlier than boys.
However, sometimes it continues beyond age five. The reasons for this are: Some bladders are not capable of containing the urine output accumulated during a full night's sleep. In some children, the nervous system is not sufficiently developed to awaken them from sleep even with a full bladder. Emotional stress and physical disorders can also lead to this symptom. Many also have a family history of bed-wetting. If the symptom persists both at night and during the day, the cause could be either the kidney, urinary bladder, or psychological. Get the child checked for urine infection, reduce intake of liquids before bed-time and ensure the child visits the bathroom before bed-time. Some children even benefit by being awakened every few hours to pass urine. The patient should also be encouraged to overcome emotional factors like nervousness and fear.
Bach flower remedies and aromatherapy, combined with EFT and specific acupoints give very good results in healing this problem at the emotional and physical level. Even simple acupressure and colour therapy are extremely useful in bedwetting. According to ancient traditional medicines, a deficiency of energy in the kidney and spleen can induce disorder of the urinary bladder, causing bedwetting. Application of specific colours on locations and regular self-acupressure gives good results. The colours should be applied during the day and regularly over a period of time. Good quality, stable colour markers that do not change colour after application should be used. If patients report any discomfort, please erase the applied colour with a suitable solvent and retry after few days.
