Sleepwalking and Bedwetting – Sister Symptoms

ABC news has reported “Taylor Gammel, 19, was missing for at least three hours one night last week after she walked out of her parents’ home in Denver, Colorado. Police said that they think Gammel was asleep as she traveled nine miles to an area near her uncle’s home.”

Dr. Jennifer Ashton stated during a Good Morning America segment that there is no treatment for sleepwalking, and the cause is unclear.

The Enuresis Treatment Center, a bedwetting clinic, knows the bedwetting’s relationship to sleep, and knows about the  likelihood that Taylor is also a bedwetter. If that’s the case, there is, in fact, treatment.

Enuresis-Treatment-CenterFounder, Barbara Moore, states “Thousands of our patients over the years have experienced both sleepwalking and bedwetting. Thousands more had siblings who were sleepwalkers.”

What is clear at the Enuresis Treatment Center is that the end to chronic bedwetting is through the treatment of a deep, non-arousable sleep, which is not a normal, healthy pattern. This is actually a discovery based on scientific research.

Founder Barbara Moore discovered a seminal study that ended the mystery of bedwetting.  The result of the study “Sleep Disorders of Arousal,” by Roger J. Broughton, shows the differences in normal sleep patterns and those of a bedwetter and a sleepwalker. A big difference!

Forty years later, the clinical data continues to show that the deep sleep pattern is the problem, which creates symptoms of bedwetting, as well as sleepwalking.  The place to focus proper treatment is with the very deep sleep.

If walking nine miles in socks never awakened Taylor Gammel, this is clearly indicative of an different pattern of sleep – too deep to receive a signal from the bladder.  Again, by itself, sleepwalking is not a treatable condition. If we discover that she is also a bedwetter, they have a treatment program.

Physician Recommends Bedwetting Treatment Program


A mom, who happens to also be a physician, was searching for help for her daughter, who continued to wet the bed.  She was so pleased to find a solution to end bedwetting that she sent a typed letter of thanks to the Enuresis Treatment Center.


Dear Barbara;

My daughter was treated by your center recently.  We would like to thank you for all your help and support.  She is doing well and is happy to have completed the program.  She is pleased that she continues to be dry.  She says she feels more confident that she can spend the night with friends or relatives without worrying that she will wet the bed.We would like to thank Theresa for her guidance.  It was a pleasure to work with her.  Her patience and flexibility was appreciated when we had to change appointments at times.  She was simply wonderful to us and we cannot begin to express our depth of gratitude.

As a physician, I feel confident that I can recommend your program to my patients and families.  As a parent, I am pleased with our positive outcome and relieved to know that my daughter now feels confident and unburdened.

Once again, thank you for your help.


Dr. Tara



Well Established Program Solves Teen’s Bedwetting

I contacted your clinic  over a year ago when my son was a senior in high school and had been a bedwetter all his life.  Like other parents, we too had tried a number of different approaches, including DDAVP early on, but nothing worked.  Our four children were all bedwetters–two ended early between ages 5-7, and one not until age 14.  Sadly, our son was the extreme case.

Desperate to find a solution, I came across the your website, read all the information and many testimonials, then had a consultation by phone.  I was so relieved to find a well-established program with such a high international success rate for bedwetters of all ages that did not involve medications, invasive procedures, doctor visits, or psychobabble.  The greatest revelation was learning this condition is actually a sleep disorder, which made perfect sense.  And the greatest encouragement was that it could be treated quite naturally and effectively.

While our hope was to complete the program within 6 months, such a long-term problem actually took my son longer.  However, through much perseverance and diligence to follow the treatment plan, which was so individualized to his needs, he just successfully graduated the course—three months before his 19th birthday!  This was a huge milestone, and we are so thankful for everyone at your clinic and the consistent support and encouragement from our counselor Claudia.
