Homeopathy for Bedwetting

Homeopathy for Bedwetting gives you some basic guidance and supporting your child through a bedwetting phase. In addition, I guide you through our thoughts from a prescribing point of view. I also tell you about typical remedies you can try.

Basic Guidance

Do ensure that your child is drinking at regular intervals during the day. This is of course something you can lead by example with as it’s a good habit for everyone. In conjunction with this, get your child into a habit of stopping for a toilet break on a regular basis. Make the goal between four and seven times a day with particular emphasis on the before bed visit. Perhaps this visit gets a little reward while you are training your child.

Do not punish a child for an accident, it is just that an accident. The problem will only be exaggerated by punishment. Consider what your child is drinking, caffeine loaded drinks, carbonated drinks and overly sweet drinks should be limited or excluded completely. Explain that a fizzy drink will irritate their bladder and they are more likely to had a bed accident. As tempting as it is, it is not a good idea to get them up in the night. This simply programmes their body into that habit.

Look out for constipation because a full bowel puts pressure on the baldder making accidents more likely. Is your child anxious or is the home environment stressful? These situations can reveal themselves as bedwetting particularly If the child cannot express or understand their emotions.

Other possibilities

Bedwetting does actually run in families so check your memory and your partner’s di either of you have an issue during your childhood? If there is pain. Increased frequency and urgency there could be a UTI affecting your child. Diabetes has many symptoms alongside bedwetting, these include thirst, weight loss, hunger, tummy pain, vomiting tiredness and thrush.

The Homeopathic Approach

Homeopathy for Bedwetting is not a short cut because the Homeopathic approach is not to treat symptoms in isolation but to look at the whole person. So, in any case, we review changes in appetite, thirst, bowel movements and urinary habits. We consider family genetics, right back to how the pregnancy was and how Mother felt during the pregnancy.

One of the most important things we consider is what was happening around the time that a change happens for a patient. Depending on the age of the child, anxiety is a factor that must be considered. In fact, the older a child is the more likely that anxiety / stress is at the root of the issue. Metaphysically, symptoms around urine indicate someone is peed off about something. So be aware of what is happening in your child’s life and how it is affecting them. Bedwetting gets a child attention, has a new sibling arrived? Has something else disturbed their balance?

The emotional picture of a patient is just as important as the physical expressions. Our bodies work as one unit so sleep, reactions to temperature, seasonal changes and overall preferences of a person have to be taken into consideration
