Urinating at Night - Nocturia

Nocturia is a condition when people feel the urge to urinate at night. After 50-60 y-old some people urinate once, while others are being disturbed quite a few times.

Urinating at Night – Nocturia is characterized by:

Inability to have a quality night sleep and good rest. Feeling exhausted waking up next morning. Night urination even once a night shows specific Kidneys’ weakness, in TCM so-called yin deficiency. Overactive at night time Kidneys give away valuable minerals during night urination and weaken overall bodily bone structure.

Urinating at Night – The Real Story

One time my patient came for his monthly maintenance treatment and said,” Yelena, I am in trouble, I can’t sleep”. I asked him if it was insomnia, and his answer was ‘no’. He said that for the last couple of weeks he was urinating up to 5 times a night. Every 40-60 minutes he felt the urge to urinate again.

He said that he visited his physician to inquire about his current health problem. According to his story, his physician said,”when we grow old, our urinary bladder is shrinking and becomes unable to contain the same amount of urine as before”. He looked at me and asked me if this was true. I was perplexed for a moment thinking of what I should say. My patient was 40 years old then… I didn’t feel comfortable to give any comment to affect his relationship with his doctor. I said that I am going to fix his problem now and he will be able to sleep normally.

So, what happened to my patient? During Japanese medical health assessment, I found that his Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) was too excited affecting health condition of Kidneys and Adrenal glands. By regulating SNS, Kidneys and Adrenal glands’ function the balance of his health was restored.

In four weeks, when that patient came for his maintenance treatment, I asked him how he felt after last acupuncture session and he said that he slept normally since his last visit as nothing had ever happened to him.
