Enuresis Treatment Clinic – Bedwetting Solutions
Call it what you will…. Bedwetting, enuresis, nocturnal enuresis, primary enuresis, diurnal enuresis… It’s all the same. Bed wetting is a symptom of a very deep, inherited sleep disorder. It is oxygen deprived sleep, and it is definitely not healthy. We have been successfully treating bedwetting, worldwide since 1995. And, our treatment is drug free! You’ve come to the right place.
“So, what’s the next step?” This is what we suggest…
First Step: Recognizing that Bedwetting is caused by a deep unhealthy, inherited sleep disorder. Once you have the mindset that bedwetting is caused by the deep sleep, it will make sense that you don’t just close your eyes at night and suddenly have a physical or emotional problem.
Second Step: Call our office at 216-229-7777. We will explain the truth about Bedwetting (enuresis). We will answer all of your questions (the process, the commitment, length of treatment, our promise to you, and the fees.)
Third Step: Make an appointment to get started… We’ll take it from there!
“Having been a bedwetter myself, for 19 years, I can empathize with anyone living through a bedwetting problem. Our patients tell us that our program makes so much sense and what we describe sounds just like their bedwetter.”
-Shelly Morris, Director
Before the Internet, we could only reach out to local patients. Now we have the opportunity to reach out to people all over the USA. The Enuresis Treatment Clinic has developed an effective and sophisticated technique of using a combination of telephone, fax, and email consultation. Local patients are still welcome to come to our office,though many, once they reach the age of 8 or 9, prefer not being “seen” in a bedwetting clinic. Our experience has allowed us to treat and cure people with a bedwetting problem remotely, and still maintain our very high 95% success rate.
Why does the Enuresis Treatment Clinic succeed when other methods fail to cure bedwetting?
We work with your family to change this unhealthy deep-sleep pattern that underlies all bedwetting. We also increase the small bladder capacity and teach you how to strengthen and sensitize the sphincter muscle.
Most bedwetters have tried many types of treatment, including drugs, changes in diet, fluid restriction, taking the bedwetter to the bathroom, psychological therapy, homeopathic therapies, and waiting and waiting and waiting some more, to “outgrow” it. We usually hear from people after the other methods have failed. Most are discouraged, frustrated and skeptical. Here’s the thing, there is not a drug available that will permanently change the deep-sleep pattern, which is what causes the bedwetting. The sleep disorder is the health issue. It is a very unhealthy sleep disorder and most often, when people outgrow bedwetting, the sleep disorder remains, and there is no way of changing it.
All of the drugs are temporary fixes that may affect the symptoms, for a while, but do nothing to cure the sleep problem. Bladder capacity and sphincter muscle control can only be achieved with proper exercise while working to change the sleep disorder.
Note: Exercise alone, will not work. We need to change the sleep so that the night time is working with the bedwetter, not against them. Thus, we coordinate the exercise with reconditioning the bedwetter’s sleep pattern.
What causes bedwetting? Bedwetting is a problem which affects nearly 20 million people in the US and millions more throughout the world?
99% of the time, a bedwetting problem is only the symptom of an extremely deep sleep condition. Generally, it is inherited from someone on one side or the other of your family. The urinary system is trying to send messages to the brain, but the brain cannot respond. The bladder empties, and over time, creates a couple of physical symptoms: a lack of elasticity in the bladder and a weak sphincter muscle (The sphincter muscle is the muscle that holds the urine inside the bladder). The sphincter muscle, besides locking the urine inside, has a second function which is to detect as the bladder is filling, and also to feel when the bladder is truly empty. However, because the muscle isn’t being instructed by the brain to “lock” at night, the muscle loses it’s sensitivity and most bedwetters begin having daytime problems. This can vary with individual patients.
We most often see problems such as last minute emergencies – “gotta go right now”, having to urinate often, leakage in the underwear, full wetting accidents and even bowel problems.
What does NOT cause bedwetting?
Okay, Mom and Dad…stop feeling guilty. And, bedwetters, you stop feeling guilty too. You have not done anything to cause bedwetting. There are many misconceptions including emotional or psychological issues, drinking too much at night, making mistakes raising our children (I didn’t get a manual with my kids, did you?), waiting too long to potty train, potty training too soon, bedwetters being lazy and waiting until the last minute etc. Though bedwetting causes some emotional/psychological issues, it isn’t caused by emotional or psychological issues.
What bedwetting “cures” do NOT work?
Limiting Fluid Intake …Medications… Commercial Alarms …Alarm Clocks…Getting Them Up… …Waiting To “Outgrow” Bedwetting … Punishment … Rewards … Psychological Therapy … Surgical Procedures … Acupuncture…Hypnosis … Dietary Changes And Restrictions… Homeopathic Remedies.
Does bedwetting create self-esteem issues?
YES, of course. Most of us are very private with regard to bodily functions. Bedwetting is blatant and so embarrassing, even for young children. Bedwetting children miss out on normal childhood activities such as sleepovers, camp, church overnights, family camping trips and school trips, just to name a few. And, if they do go to these events, it creates tremendous stress for the bedwetter and his or her parents.
Teenage bedwetters worry about college, adult bedwetters often avoid long term relationships. Fear of disclosure, even by family members, not to mention peers, is a big source of self-esteem issues. Each morning, a wet bed or wet pull-up represents another failure.
Are there other symptoms that can arise from the bed wetter’s sleep disorder?
Many children have problems in school caused by unhealthy sleep. For some it starts early and for others it becomes noticeable as the school work becomes more difficult. Bedwetters spend most of their night in the very deepest stage of sleep, known as stage 4. The body receives less oxygen during stage 4 than it does during any other stages of sleep. Therefore, if the body is receiving less oxygen all night, that includes the brain.
When the brain experiences lower levels of oxygen at night, symptoms like lack of focus, reading comprehension, being easily distracted, class clown syndrome, fatigue, irritability and daydreaming may ensue. The symptoms can mirror those of ADD/ADHD. You’ve got to ask yourself how you would function after a poor night’s sleep.
There are two types of bedwetters who generally will not experience ADD/ADHD symptoms… perfectionists and those bedwetters who awaken easily in the morning. Once we change the sleep disorder the bedwetting goes away, and most often so will the ADD/ADHD symptoms, or at the very least, they will improve.

"If l had listened to our pediatrician's advice, we would not have sought treatment for Amy and I firmly believe we would still be having wet beds and inflicting needless psychological damage on Amy!"

"We cannot express the feeling we have when Jonathan asks for that second glass of milk at dinner or cola just before bedtime and we say yes! Or how great it is to see him have a friend over to spend the night or better yet, spend the night at a friend's house."
Parents of a 10 year old boyToledo, Ohio
"We have been coming to the Enuresis Treatment Clinic for 5 months now. When we started Sean was completely wetting himself every single night sometimes 2 or 3 times a night. There is no way that we could put a price tag on the wonderful change we have seen in our son, Sean. He is now dry every night! It was well worth the price and the effort to make this change happen for Sean. Thank you for a job well done."
"After 12 years of trying to get Jeff some help we had finally decided there was none. That's when we heard of your clinic. Now after 6 months on your program Jeff is completely cured. It has not only changed Jeff's life it has changed the whole family's life. Jeff can now travel and have friends sleep over. His whole outlook on life has changed and he is such a happy person now. Thank you seems minor after all you have done for us. We will always remember what you did."
A 16 year old girlHampshire, Illinois
"I am a 16-year old girl and happy to say, a former bed-wetter. Today, April 29th, 1996 I graduated from the enuresis program. ... As I write this letter I remember the hardships I had to go through to finally get cured. It is very tough for bed-wetters. They feel all alone, even though bed-wetting is very common. I used to sit in my room at night and cry, because I thought I was the only one out there and I could never do anything about it."
A 28 year old femaleClarksville, Tennessee
"It was a very quick and painless treatment. I just can't say enough about the clinic. I had tried everything. I would highly recommend this clinic. It gets a four star rating in my book."
Father of a 9 year old girlLancaster, Pennsylvania
"Our own pediatrician was willing to let us experiment with DDAVP. We used the maximum dose for a month but Cara was not dry even one night. Our pediatrician's final advice was to "Just relax and let Cara outgrow the enuresis." In retrospect we wish we had known about your program when our daughter was age four or five."

Parents of an 8 year old boyNewark, Delaware
"Even though we were only in your area for a few days, you folks accommodated us and squeezed us into your already busy schedule. We are so glad you did! Enclosed is a picture of Jonathan in his new soccer uniform. It represents the freedom we have to do things and go places now that we have control of the enuresis instead of it controlling us."
Father of a 6 year old boyMt. Clemens, Michigan
"It is so great to have Mario get out of bed every morning with that look on his face like he just hit a "homerun" with the bases loaded."
Mother of 10 year old girlThe Woodlands, Texas
"No one ever mentioned sleep disorder to us. When we learned about this program my husband and I were very skeptical, yet our hearts told us that this made sense. We prayed a lot for the answer and we found it".
– Mom and Dad of 14 year old boyNew York, NY
"Our Pediatrician suggested we call you because some of her other patients raved about your bedwetting program. Now we are among your many success stories after only 5 1/2 months! We can't thank you enough, Shelly and Enuresis Treatment Clinic staff...Keep up the great work!!"
– Parents of a 13 year old boySarasota, Florida
"I only wish we had known about this sooner. Caleb's bedwetting caused him to miss out on so many things that are a normal part of growing up like camps, scouting overnights, sleepovers. Thank you Enuresis Treatment Clinic, we will be forever grateful!"
