A Dry Bed for Little Ones with Homeopathy
There are many areas of homeopathy in which a list of the top five remedies can be
expounded upon to aid the newcomer to this incredible medicine. Bee stings, for instance,are usually met squarely for the present condition and also for future incidences withLedum. Aconitum and Arnica are well reputed to address trauma to soft tissue or to thehead. Enuresis, or bed wetting, is a little different. Not because it isn’t possible toconsider, (it has a reputation for being one of the easiest illnesses to address) but becauseit’s person-specific. No doubt, habitual wetting of the bed is a disheartening problem, particularly for a childwho is of age to attend camp or spend the night at a cousin’s house. Take Becky, for example. Becky is a sweet, retiring little girl of 9 years old. She has blue eyes, sandy blond hair and a feminine disposition. She has never had a dry bed and has gone througha battery of tests. Her parents have taken her to three doctors who have offered surgery,meds and behavioral modification techniques. Becky’s mom refused the surgery on thegrounds that it was too extreme for the situation. Smart mom. Her mom also refuseddrugs because the doctor admitted they wouldn’t cure the problem and would just cover itup. The behavioral training was tried, yet Becky still wet the bed nightly.This is when Becky’s mom decided to try homeopathy. She has a best friend who hasused homeopathy for her family for years and she finally decided it was time to give it atry. The first visit was interesting. The homeopath seemed certain this was not a problemthat homeopathy couldn’t address.
“What foods do you like to eat?”
“Do you like going out side?” “Do you ever get stomach aches?”
Thequestions seemed unrelated to the bed wetting problem, but at the end of the impressivelylong appointment, the homeopath suggested
which is generally used four times in one day only and repeated twice monthly for two months.Becky took her remedy dutifully the following day. Astonishingly, four nights later, shewas dry! This was the first time she had been dry in her entire life! Becky’s parents wereelated and so was Becky, but they were also a little apprehensive. What was in these pillsthat could cause such a dramatic change? Upon calling the homeopath for reassurance,they were soothed by the information they received. Firstly, the homeopath wasn’t at allsurprised that this had occurred so quickly. She then explained that homeopathy is amedicine of gentleness. No side effects, no addictions. In fact, Becky would likely notneed to take the remedy for more than those few weeks. An interesting aside is thatBecky’s mom also noticed that she was no longer whiny and clingy and was moreinterested in going to her cousins’ house to play. The homeopath explained that this is theway homeopathy is supposed to work.Homeopathysimply nudged Becky’s system to bring it to its best place. It does no harm;it causes no distress. It just quietly, gently and politely nudges the sufferer's body to bringitself to its best economy. Becky and her mom are delighted. The homeopath is pleasedand the world is a better place.
