Can Hypnosis Help With Enuresis (Bed Wetting)?
Bedwetting is very natural for toddlers and can even be common in children who might sleep too deeply or who might have a tough time with bladder control. Most youngsters do, however, outgrow this common issue at some point.
Children who struggle with bedwetting into their teenage years and adults who might suddenly develop this issue do, however, have a much more serious issue and are often diagnosed with enuresis. These types of issues can be very difficult to deal with because patients also have to cope with the emotional distress that results from accidental bedwetting.
Today, there are many different treatments for enuresis and hypnosis might just be one of the best treatments for these psychological conditions.
What is Enuresis?
Enuresis has many different faces or causes. There are four main types of enuresis which include the following;
Primary nocturnal enuresis – With this form of the condition, the individual has been wetting the bed since infancy. It is the most common type of enuresis.
Secondary enuresis – This form of the condition developed at least 6 months after the person has learned to control his or her bladder.
Nocturnal enuresis – This form of bedwetting occurs only at night time and can stem from physiological, developmental, or medical issues.
Diurnal enuresis – This form of enuresis occurs during the daytime after a child has been fully potty trained. The condition can be emotional or caused by medical issues.
What Causes Enuresis?
A number of different psychological problems can be the cause of bedwetting
in older children or adults. For some, it is something as simple as a sleep disorder. They might find it hard to wake up even when their bladder is full. For others, it could be something like emotional trauma, stress, or anxiety, or a condition like ADHD.
Can Hypnotherapy Help with Enuresis?
Hypnosis can help with enuresis that is caused by psychological issues but it cannot do much for this condition if it is caused by a medical condition.
Before you visit a hypnotherapist, it is always best to go and see a doctor about a medical diagnosis. A great many medical conditions can cause enuresis and it is best to get medical attention as soon as possible because this condition can eventually cause mental health conditions like low self-esteem, anxiety, or sleep disorders.
If the enuresis is caused by psychological problems then hypnosis can be a wonderful treatment.
Is Hypnosis For Enuresis Suitable For Children?
Not all children do respond well to hypnotherapy. Some children are simply too youngl to understand or undergo this type of remedy. Some might feel too anxious about talking with a therapist to truly relax and enter a state of hypnosis. Some children might have an attention span that is just too short for a proper hypnosis session. Hypnosis can be difficult for some children under the age of 10 years. If a child is younger than 15 years old then it is always best to discuss it with a professional hypnotherapist beforehand.
How Hypnotherapy Can Be Used for Enuresis
Hypnotherapy is all about accessing your subconscious and making some suggestions that might modify bad behaviors or change the way you feel about certain things. These treatments are great for treating enuresis since bed-wetting mostly occurs when your mind is in a subconscious state.
Hypnotherapists can help the patient identify the root cause of their psychological problem and can then work with them to overcome trauma, stress, anxiety, or other emotional issues that might be causing the enuresis.
