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.

A grateful mother of 18 year old thanks CBT

Dear CBT,

I contacted CBT 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 CBT website, read all the information and many testimonials, then had my phone consultation.  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 6-9 months, such a long-term problem actually took my son 15 months.  However, through much perseverance and diligence to follow the treatment and exercises, he just successfully graduated the course—three months before his 19th birthday!  This was a huge milestone, and we are so thankful for CBT and the consistent support and encouragement from our counselor Claudia.  We will highly recommend this program to anyone facing the same problem.

Bed Wetting – 2% of Teenagers Still Suffer From Enuresis

According to a study published in Virtual Medicine, as many as 2% of teenagers experience bed wetting, or nocturnal enuresis.

That translates to millions of teenagers all over the world who continue to hear a confusing message from their medical professional – “Don’t worry, you will outgrow it.”

This message is not statistically accurate. One in fifty teenagers continue to wet the bed and one in one hundred  adults never outgrow bed wetting.

The Center for Bedwetting Treatment, a well-known Bedwetting Clinic, has been successfully treating all age groups since 1975.  They know the bedwetting is a symptom of a sleep problem and offer effective treatment worldwide.  Their program is medication-free and has a 97% success.
