Bed Wetting Natural Remedies

Bed wetting is a condition where a child, usually over the age of 4 or 5, cannot hold their urine overnight, or sometimes during the day. Causes can be jealousy, anger, a new baby, or family discord. Bed wetting can be a nervous condition or something more serious such as diabetes, cystitis, or urinary blockage. If the bed wetting comes on suddenly, check with the doctor to rule out any serious problems.

Medical treatment for bed wetting may include drugs to control urinary output or bladder capacity or bladder muscle control. They can be somewhat effect, although they have side effects which can cause dependency.

The natural approach to bed wetting is to assist psychologically, nurturing to the child while assessing causes such as nervousness, parasites, kidney or bladder weakness, or such. Also recommended may be dietary changes such as eliminating junk food and sodas, especially caffeinated sodas, and encouraging drinking real fruit juices and water.

Natural Remedies for Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis is a form of chronic cystitis or inflammation of the bladder. It affects mostly women from in their twenties to forties. There is a constant urge to urinate, as the bladder feels full all the time. As the bladder fills, the pain increases. The pain involved may be excruciation, keeping the sufferer from daily activities. Some natural health authorities feel it may be the result of emotional issues transferring into physical disease.

Diet is an important issue as caffeine and alcohol can aggravate the situation. It is wise to avoid tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and sodas. MSM, SamE, NAC, and lecithin should be a part of your vitamin regimen. They all contribute sulphur. Other sulphur-rich foods are onions and garlic.

Ask your doctor about these natural supplements to support your body’s ability to better handle the symptoms:

MSM is for pain and inflammation.

D-Mannose (at 500 mg twice daily) several months prevents bacteria from adhering to bladder walls and helps bladder wall repair.

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) is used for liver protection and detoxification.
