Bedwetting Scare Tactic

In addition to the chronic bedwetting, her son, 9.5, has been experiencing daytime urgencies, frequencies and leaking. At his last visit with their pediatrician, her son was told he was lazy, and should be trying harder. Mom said she shocked and saw her son shrink in shame from hearing those negative comments. Their doctor also dismissed mom’s concerns even when mom shared that her niece, 19, was still wetting the bed.

I responded with “How sad for you and your son. We wish doctors would listen more to parents. Please contact your pediatrician and tell him to contact our clinic.”

“We will take the time to explain more about sleep disorder that is causing the chronic bedwetting and the toll untreated bedwetting can take.”

Mom replied, “If this is what he is telling my son, he may be misinforming and scaring other children who wet the bed. How does that help children stop wetting the bed? ”

Bedwetting Solved. Now He Can Go To Summer Camp.

Parents send us letters and emails regarding their experience with our bedwetting treatment program.  A family from Houston just completed treatment and were so pleased with our bedwetting solution.

“We wanted to pass along a quick update and thank you for all your help with the program for our son. Prior to finding the your bedwetting specialist – Enuresis Treatment Center, we were at our wits end. Our son just turned 8, and he was wetting the bed 4-6 nights per week. We had tried everything from restricting his fluid intake during and after dinner, and we were even setting our alarm to get up and go take him to the bathroom in the middle of the night. It was exhausting for him and us. That offered some short-term relief, but none of it was solving the underlying issue of his sleep habits. He was deep-sleep bed wetting, and often, when we would go up to wake him, he would be in such a clouded state, he would look right at you and not hear what you were telling him.

After finding your bedwetting program while researching online,  and speaking to one of your staff, we learned that his sleep patterns were not allowing his brain to recognize when he had to go to the bathroom and wake him up to go. Subsequently, he was still deep in his sleep rather than sleep cycling, and his bladder signals weren’t getting to his brain, so his body would just release urine.

Once we learned more about how his sleep cycle was working, we realized that restricting fluids  and getting him up in the night wasn’t going to fix the problem. This very heavy sleep (which I always thought was good sleep!) needed to be corrected first. Our son was very embarrassed about this problem. He wouldn’t have anyone spend the night, or go to summer camp activities for fear that he might wet the bed. Of course, we were equally concerned, but we didn’t know what to do, and trying all the home remedies on the internet wasn’t going to fix his sleep patterns.

When we called the clinic, you were extremely helpful. We were put in touch with a director, and we did a 1 hour consultation to discuss our son’s symptoms. We learned so much, had no idea how complex this problem is as they become an older child still bed wetting!  We decided to begin the programs and after about 2 months, our son began experiencing some big victories. We made such a big deal about it when he first got up on his own in the middle of the night to go. He came running down to our bedroom just beaming at about 1 am, flipped on the light and said, “Guess what? I have to go, and I woke up on my own!My brain is finally getting it.” We were so proud of him, and so thankful for the your true “how to stop bedwetting” program. Over the next few weeks and months, he began going for days and weeks at a time with little to no accidents at all. He hadn’t done this ever before. Needless to say, we were thrilled, and we started seeing him get his confidence back. We remember vividly when he went the entire month with no accidents, even when he would go to bed later, or have lots of fluids before bed. It’s been wonderful.

End Bedwetting Then Summer Camp

We’re going on about 3 months now post graduation, and he hasn’t had a bedwetting accident. He’s thrilled, and so are we. We have a confident little boy now, and he recently asked if he could go to summer camp this year. That is a huge step that never would have been possible without you. We are so glad we found your program and wholeheartedly recommend you. Thank you again for everything.”

Jahi McMath: Tonsillectomy to Treat Bedwetting, Outrageous and Dangerous!

Bedwetting and Tonsillectomy, Jahi McMathThe tragic brain death of 13 year, Jahi McMath, the result of her tonsillectomy, to treat her bedwetting, among her other conditions as reported on CNN Health website December 18, 2013 provides an egregious and dangerous example of the misunderstanding about the disorder and its treatment.

Had Jahi been our patient, her sleep apnea, inability to concentrate, and short attention span would have been understood as the classic consequence of her bedwetting and not a cluster of symptoms requiring a tonsillectomy.

With 39 years of experience, our highly effective treatment of bedwetting would have ended Jahi’s symptoms, improved the quality of her life in a multitude of ways, and, most importunately, kept her alive, facing a new life without the burden of her bedwetting.

 The American Academy of Otolaryngology’s assertion that tonsillectomy cures bedwetting only serves to perpetuate this dangerous treatment.

It legitimatizes it, putting children like Jahi in potentially harms way.
