bedwetting, a problem which affects over 20 million people
in the U.S. and millions more throughout the world?
In 99% of all bedwetting cases, the root cause is sleeping so deeply. It is an inherited
deep-sleep disorder. The brain sleeps so deeply that when
signaled by the bladder that it’s full, the brain cannot
respond. The bladder empties involuntarily, and, as a result,
symptoms begin to develop, such as an underdeveloped bladder
capacity and a weak and desensitized sphincter muscle. (The
sphincter muscle is the muscle that holds the urine inside
As a result, many children with a bedwetting dilemma suffer
from various daytime problems such as immediate "urges"
to eliminate, having to go to the bathroom frequently, wetting
accidents/leaking during the day, and bowel accidents.
According to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., a survey of 2,000 children in 1999 showed that wetting pants in class was the third biggest fear among school-aged children, just behind losing a parent or going blind
Why does the Enuresis Treatment
Center succeed when other methods fail to cure bedwetting?
Most of the parents of our bedwetting patients have tried many types of
treatment, including alarms and drugs, and have come to us after
years of failure, frustration, and disappointment. Our bedwetting program
focuses on addressing all symptoms that occur from both the bedwetting and the deep sleep. To get to the core of the problem; the inherited deep sleep disorder, we need to recondition or change the deep-sleep pattern,
build the bladder-brain connection that is not working now, giving children the following advantages:
- An end to enuresis with 100% dry nights
- Healthy, restorative sleep
- Waking up refreshed
- Increased ability to focus
- Dramatic improvement in grades
- Boost to self-esteem and social interactions
- Ability to attend sleepovers and camp
- Elimination of ADD/ADHD symptoms and/or medication
Symptoms related to bedwetting:
Many children begin to experience a challenge in school caused
by unhealthy deep sleep. For some, it starts early, and for
others it becomes noticeable as the school work becomes more
challenging. Often the symptoms are similar to those associated
with ADD/ADHD, (hyperactivity, socializing at inappropriate
times, not being able to focus, and having a difficult time
Actually, many of our patients had been previously diagnosed
with ADD/ADHD, and after our bedwetting treatment, the symptoms
often disappeared. The deep sleep that the bedwetting experience
is derived from is an oxygen-deprived, unhealthy sleep. It
is because of this that many bedwetting children have symptoms
similar to those of ADD/ADHD.

Will my child outgrow bedwetting?
Being told your child will outgrow bedwetting is one of the most unfortunate pieces of advice possible.
Not only is it entirely uncertain whether one will outgrow bedwetting--we see plenty of late teen and adult bedwetters who understand this fact all too well.
- If one were to outgrow bedwetting, then they are left with the sleep disorder that caused the bedwetting in the first place.
- Other symptoms of the sleep disorder can look like sleep apnea, sleepwalking, night terrors, even insomnia.
- For this reason, we see bedwetting as an opportunity to gain access to the serious underlying issue.
Moreover, bedwetting can be an assault on a child's self-esteem, even though parents often do their best to minimize the situation. Very often the bedwetting child will suffer silently…just because they don't talk about it doesn’t mean it doesn’t bother them. A bedwetter's greatest fear is being "discovered,” which often causes them to withdraw or to harbor a secret to avoid being teased or humiliated. They'll even deliberately avoid participating in exciting childhood activities such as camp or sleepovers with friends. Ultimately, the longer bedwetting goes untreated, the greater the potential for psychological and emotional trauma.

Get The Facts About Bedwetting
- Dr. Diane N. Rosenbaum, a psychologist at the Center to Assist in the Regulation of Enuresis, which is part of Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago, said even many pediatricians did not know how to deal with bed-wetting, which is a common problem wth children.
- Frustrated parents are often told "don't worry about bedwetting. They will outgrow it!" A major study in the British Journal of Urology (May 2006) concludes that many children will never outgrow bedwetting - unless they get help.
- If a seven-year old wets every night,they will almost never stop without getting proper help. This study found that if a seven-year old is wetting just one or two nights per week, he has a 96% chance of wetting until at least age 15. If they wet three to six times, they have a 76% chance of wetting until at least age 19.
