Call it what you will.... Bedwetting, enuresis, nocturnal enuresis, primary enuresis, diurnal enuresis... It’s all the same. Bed wetting is a symptom of a very deep, inherited sleep disorder. It is oxygen deprived sleep, and it is definitely not healthy. We have been successfully treating bedwetting, worldwide since 1995.  And, our treatment is drug free!  You’ve come to the right place.

"So, what's the next step?"  This is what we suggest...

First Step:  Recognizing that Bedwetting is caused by a deep unhealthy, inherited sleep disorder. Once you have the mindset that bedwetting is caused by the deep sleep, it will make sense that you don't just close your eyes at night and suddenly have a physical or emotional problem.

Second Step:  Call our office at 216-229-7777. We will explain the truth about Bedwetting (enuresis). We will answer all of your questions (the process, the commitment, length of treatment, our promise to you, and the fees.)

Third Step:  Make an appointment to get started... We'll take it from there!

"Having been a bedwetter myself, for 19 years, I can empathize with
anyone living through a bedwetting problem. Our patients tell us
that our program makes so much sense and what we describe sounds
just like their bedwetter."
-Shelly Morris, Director


Our staff is trained to counsel each of our bedwetting patients, individually, with treatment tailored to the needs of each patient. Our bedwetting treatment is offered either over the telephone at 216-229-7777, or in person at our office.  If you would like to email us, our email address is:

Before the Internet, we could only reach out to local patients. Now we have the opportunity to reach out to people all over the USA.  The Enuresis Treatment Clinic has developed an effective and sophisticated technique of using a combination of telephone, fax, and email consultation. Local patients are still welcome to come to our office,though many, once they reach the age of 8 or 9, prefer not being "seen" in a bedwetting clinic.  Our experience has allowed us to treat and cure people with a bedwetting problem remotely, and still maintain our very high 95% success rate.

Why does the Enuresis Treatment Clinic succeed when other methods fail to cure bedwetting?

We work with your family to change this unhealthy deep-sleep pattern that underlies all bedwetting. We also increase the small bladder capacity and teach you how to strengthen and sensitize the sphincter muscle.

Most bedwetters have tried many types of treatment, including drugs, changes in diet, fluid restriction, taking the bedwetter to the bathroom,  psychological therapy, homeopathic therapies, and waiting and waiting and waiting some more, to "outgrow" it.  We usually hear from people after the other methods have failed.  Most are discouraged, frustrated and skeptical. Here's the thing, there is not a drug available that will permanently change the deep-sleep pattern, which is what causes the bedwetting.  The sleep disorder is the health issue.  It is a very unhealthy sleep disorder and most often, when people outgrow bedwetting, the sleep disorder remains, and there is no way of changing it.

All of the drugs are temporary fixes that may affect the symptoms, for a while, but do nothing to cure the sleep problem. .  Bladder capacity and sphincter muscle control can only be achieved with proper exercise while working to change the sleep disorder. 

Note:  Exercise alone, will not work.  We need to change the sleep so that the night time is working with the bedwetter, not against them. Thus, we coordinate the exercise with reconditioning the bedwetter's sleep pattern.

What causes bedwetting? Bedwetting is a problem which affects nearly 20 million people in the US and millions more throughout the world?

99% of the time, a bedwetting problem is only the symptom of an extremely deep sleep condition. Generally, it is inherited from someone on one side or the other of your family. The urinary system is trying to send messages to the brain, but the brain cannot respond. The bladder empties, and over time, creates a couple of physical symptoms: a lack of elasticity in the bladder and a weak sphincter muscle (The sphincter muscle is the muscle that holds the urine inside the bladder).  The sphincter muscle, besides locking the urine inside, has a second function which is to detect as the bladder is filling, and also to feel when the bladder is truly empty. However, because the muscle isn't being instructed by the brain to "lock" at night, the muscle loses it's sensitivity and most bedwetters begin having daytime problems.  This can vary with individual patients.

We most often see problems such as last minute emergencies - "gotta go right now", having to urinate often, leakage in the underwear, full wetting accidents and even bowel problems.

What does NOT cause bedwetting?

Okay, Mom and Dad...stop feeling guilty.  And, bedwetters, you stop feeling guilty too. You have not done anything to cause bedwetting.  There are many misconceptions including emotional or psychological issues, drinking too much at night, making mistakes raising our children (I didn't get a manual with my kids, did you?), waiting too long to potty train, potty training too soon, bedwetters being lazy and waiting until the last minute etc.  Though bedwetting causes some emotional/psychological issues, it isn't caused by emotional or psychological issues.

What bedwetting "cures" do NOT work?

Limiting Fluid Intake ...Medications... Commercial Alarms ...Alarm Clocks...Getting Them Up... ...Waiting To "Outgrow" Bedwetting ... Punishment ... Rewards ... Psychological Therapy ... Surgical Procedures ... Acupuncture...Hypnosis ... Dietary Changes And Restrictions... Homeopathic Remedies.

Does bedwetting create self-esteem issues?

YES, of course.  Most of us are very private with regard to bodily functions.  Bedwetting is blatant and so embarrassing, even for young children.  Bedwetting children miss out on normal childhood activities such as sleepovers, camp, church overnights, family camping trips and school trips, just to name a few.  And, if they do go to these events, it creates tremendous stress for the bedwetter and his or her parents.

Teenage bedwetters worry about college, adult bedwetters often avoid long term relationships.  Fear of disclosure, even by family members, not to mention peers, is a big source of self-esteem issues.  Each morning, a wet bed or wet pull-up represents another failure.

Are there other symptoms that can arise from the bed wetter's sleep disorder?

Many children have problems in school caused by unhealthy sleep. For some it starts early and for others it becomes noticeable as the school work becomes more difficult. Bedwetters spend most of their night in the very deepest stage of sleep, known as stage 4.  The body receives less oxygen during stage 4 than it does during any other stages of sleep.  Therefore, if the body is receiving less oxygen all night, that includes the brain.

When the brain experiences lower levels of oxygen at night, symptoms like lack of focus, reading comprehension, being easily distracted, class clown syndrome, fatigue, irritability and daydreaming may ensue.  The symptoms can mirror those of ADD/ADHD .  You've got to ask yourself how you would function after a poor night's sleep.

There are two types of bedwetters who generally will not experience  ADD/ADHD  symptoms... perfectionists and those bedwetters who awaken easily in the morning.  Once we change the sleep disorder the bedwetting goes away, and most often so will the ADD/ADHD symptoms, or at the very least, they will improve.
