Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Bed-wetting
Bedwetting is also known as nocturnal enuresis and is defined as bedwetting in children aged five years or more, having at least one or two episodes per week over at least a three month period. Children up to seven years usually grow out of this condition and may not require treatment; however children more than 8 years of age having nocturnal enuresis usually require treatment in order to avoid social embarrassment and adversely affecting academic performance.
Ayurvedic herbal treatment for bedwetting is aimed at treating the known cause of the condition as well as treating any known causes or contributing factors which may be perpetuating or aggravating the condition. Ayurvedic herbal medicines which have a specific action on the neuromuscular activity related to the urinary bladder are used for periods of two to four months in order to bring about a good control of the bladder sphincter in the affected child. These medicines improve the tone of the bladder muscles as well as bring about a gradual voluntary control of the sphincter of the urinary bladder.
It is equally important to investigate into psychological factors like fear, anxiety and social ills like bullying, ragging and abuse, since bedwetting may originate as a consequence of these situations. Other medical conditions like chronic constipation, recurrent diarrhoea and worm infestation can also contribute to bedwetting. All such contributory factors need the appropriate treatment as well as counseling.
Most children having nocturnal enuresis need regular treatment for about two to four months, after which the dosage of medicines as well as the frequency can be reduced gradually and then stopped completely in another month or two, so as to prevent a recurrence of the condition. Almost all children suffering from this condition recover completely with regular Ayurvedic herbal treatment.
