Bedwetting is an embarrassing habit in some children where they are unable to control urination while asleep. It is also called nighttime incontinence or nocturnal enuresis. It is a part of a child’s development and can be considered serious if a child beyond 7 years of age is still having this habit. The condition is slightly more common in boys than in girls. Though this is a distressing situation, a calm and composed approach is required for its management.

Dr. Gupta’s IAFA is offering such a serene handling of bed wetting in children through Ayurveda. IAFA is the ultimate destination for such behavioral modifications of children. Ayurveda considers the condition of bed wetting as Shayyamutra. The word means urination on bed.

Causes of Bed Wetting

Though the exact reason is unknown, bedwetting may be caused by a variety of reasons as listed below:

  • Genetic – Enuresis can get inherited through family
  • Slow development of control over the brain-bladder connection
  • Reduced bladder capacity
  • Increased production of urine by Kidneys.
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Sleep disorders
  • Pressure over bladder by constipation
  • Mental stress and anxiety

Ayurveda says that the reason for bedwetting is the abnormality with the Apana Vata that controls the functions of the evacuation of feces and urine. Also Vata is responsible for controlling the mental functions. So, improper functioning of Vata dosha results in physical and psychological abnormalities.

1. Primary nocturnal enuresis
