Possible factors include, having drinks too closely before going to bed, particularly if these are caffeinated, and not waking in the night due to deep sleep. The bladder could be overactive or not able to cope with the amount of urine produced. Children who wet the bed may not be getting enough attention or have a lack of a feeling of security and family stability, which can be picked up from the insecurities the parents are feeling. Alternatively, they may be worried because of a problem at school such as bullying. There could also be an underlying health problem such as type 1 diabetes, constipation or a urinary tract infection. In some cases, children will wake up and be conscious of their need to use the toilet, but be too anxious to do so, perhaps due to a fear of the dark.
Bed-wetting – also known as nocturnal enuresis – is where a person urinates involuntarily during the night. This condition is fairly common in children under 5 years old. It can continue on after early childhood or may start unexpectedly, after a child has been dry at night for some time. If a child experiences other symptoms alongside bed-wetting such as fever, constipation or pain when urinating, there may be an underlying condition.

It is recommended to drink plenty during the day but not drink for an hour before bed and to avoid caffeinated drinks altogether. Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables will help in the case of constipation. Going to the toilet regularly and just before going to bed should also help. It is important that children feel comfortable going to the toilet during the night so it may help to leave the bathroom light on and make sure the toilet is easily accessible. Punishment for wetting the bed will be counterproductive, rather, reassurance is key and some have found it helpful to even have some kind of reward scheme. Moisture-detecting bed-wetting alarms can be purchased to alert a child when they are starting to wet the bed and make sure they wake up. GPs may recommend the use of medication such as Desmopressin, which reduces the volume of urine produced by the kidneys and is taken before bed.
Experiences and case studies
As well as helping the condition itself, bioresonance therapy has proved effective in treating the root causes of bed-wetting. 25 individuals with recurring urinary tract infections had not got relief from conventional treatment. They each had a course of bioresonance therapy, having 4 treatments on average. Success came quickly and after a year, 23 of the patients (92%) had not had a recurrence.
