Then there was the reader whose eight-year-old son still wets the bed.
Try EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), says one reader, which can solve problems like bedwetting in one session. Or try an hypnotherapist, suggests another.
Walnut oil can do the trick too. Just two dessert spoonfuls a day (one in the morning and evening) for two days should be enough. A homoeopath, meanwhile, would suggest low-potency Equisetum (horsetail), says one reader, while another (a homoeopath) says to try Tuberculinum and Equis. The New Era B tissue salts might help, suggests one reader.
Or try the DDAT programme (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Attention Deficit Treatment Centre). More information can be found on the website, http://www.ddat.co.uk.
A feng shui expert resolved one bedwetting problem when she told the parent to remove any items stored under the bed. The mother removed all the toy boxes, and the son never wet the bed again! Or try visualization.
Induce deep relaxation in the child and allow him to explore the root cause of the complaint. It’s worked for others, and it can work for you.
Many of the E numbers on processed foods can be a cause as they can relax the muscles, resulting in involuntary wetting. Try and remove all chemicals and preservatives from the diet and use chemical-free toiletries. Fluoride in toothpaste could be a major cause.
One reader took her daughter to a chiropractor, who cleared up the bedwetting after three sessions. If the problem is linked to the alignment of the spine, a visit to the chiropractor could be the answer.
One reader cured her son’s bedwetting by cutting out apple juice from his diet, and also by encouraging him to get up if she saw he was restless in his sleep.
