When a child loses bladder control while sleeping and
wets the bed, it is often related to the same reasons why
some adults have to wake up two or three times a night to
go to the bathroom-adrenal fatigue, because the adrenals
help to regulate fluid balance in the body. It can also be
due to fear, hypoglycemia, mineral imbalances or a weakness of the kidneys and bladder.
If the children also tends to wet themselves during the day, they may have a urinary tract infection.
Licorice root or HY-A can help build the adrenals and regulate blood sugar. A protein snack before bedtime (such as a couple of ounces of peanut butter, cottage cheese or beef jerky) may also help. Collatrim taken before bed will have the same effect.
Mineral imbalances may also contribute to this problem. Magnesium deficiency in particular may be a root cause.
Kidney herbs (cornsilk, JP-X, Kidney Activator, marshmallow, parsley) are often used to encourage urination during the day. If the problem is a lack of tone in the sphincter of the bladder then uva ursi taken as a tea may be helpful.
