Terri, a mom from Los Angeles, CA, called our clinic seeking a bed wetting solution that would finally put an end to her 10 year-old daughter Jessica’s bedwetting. When she learned our clinic was 15 minutes from where she grew up, she was thrilled.
During a Clinical Assessment with the parents, we learned Jessica was experiencing many symptoms that needed attention: daytime urgencies, leaking and frequent trips to the bathroom. Terri stated she was tired of hearing complaints from the teachers regarding constant classroom disruption because Jessica’s supposed need to frequently go to the bathroom. Jessica was also wetting the bed multiple times at night.
Behaviorally, Jessica was tired, frustrated and anxious during the day, and she experienced little memory of dreaming during the night. She was exhausted every morning, even after 9 hours of sleep. 4th grade was proving to be a challenge and Terri was hearing that Jessica was not working to her potential.
She was starting to worry about missing Girl Scout sleepovers, and was terrified one of her friends would discover she was a “bedwetter”. She kept asking how to stop bedwetting.
By the end, our bedwetting solution ended her bedwetting, and, not only was Jessica waking up dry every morning, she was waking up refreshed and having recall of dreams. The deep-sleep bedwetting was gone. During a parent-teacher conference, Jessica’s teachers commented about the positive change in behavior and said that she no longer was disrupting the class with a constant need to go to the bathroom. Jessica’s Girl Scout sleepover was successful and her mom said a new young lady had emerged as a result of ending the bedwetting.
Here is the letter mom sent to the Enuresis Treatment Center.

I am a 54 year-old mom of 2 girls, ages 12 and 10. We live in California.
Our 10 year old daughter, who will be 11 in November 2015, was experiencing nightly wetting and occasionally daytime wetting. My husband and I talked to her doctor about it. The doctor suggested that her colon was not emptying itself completely and putting instant pressure on the bladder, which caused her daytime wetting. We had to go through a CT scan, which our doctor said proved his diagnosis. He suggested we put MiraLax in her juice drinks 3 x a day. We did this for several months and it did not make any difference.
I spoke to my sister-in-law (also living in California) who experienced the same bedwetting problem with her daughter. She told me about a enuresisclinic in Michigan who she had worked with and solved the bedwetting issue. Ironically, another friend of mine reached out to the same experts – Enuresis Treatment Center! I called immediately and learned so much. I also discovered I had grown up a few miles from where the clinic is located.
I made phone contact in February and our treatment started almost immediately. We worked with Claudia, who walked us through every treatment step needed to address symptoms…I learned bedwetting is just a symptom, not the cause. We were so grateful that we did not have to fly to the clinic. My daughter experienced so many improvements thanks to Claudia and the clinic’s vast experience with ending bedwetting.
Six months later, our daughter is confident, well rested and has been very comfortable on sleepovers. 4th grade is no longer a struggle, but a place where she thrives.
Thank you Claudia and everyone at the Enuresis Treatment Center.
