How To Cure An Inability To Urinate

By Charlie Rivs

For those who suffer from Shy Bladder Syndrome (or Paruresis which is the medical name), there are two important things you must know: You are not on your own – according to the latest research more than 17 million people suffer from this problem … and There is a solution! Paruresis can also be termed as Shy Bladder Syndrome, Urophobia, and Psychogenic Urinary Retention. It is described as a traumatic psychological condition that means an individual is unable to pee any time they’re under the impression others can see and hear them. Furthermore, it describes people who encounter problems peeing under the stress of time pressure and even when traveling in moving vehicles. Unfortunately, because Shy Bladder Syndrome is such an embarrassing condition, we feel unable to talk to anyone about it; even to a doctor.  Your health can also suffer as a result. Many people start drinking less fluid so they don’t have to go when they are out and some people have revealed not urinating for as long as 10, 12, 16, or even 20 hours due to the fact they could not find a ‘safe’ bathroom. Not urinating for this period of time can be incredibly hard on your bladder and kidneys and can lead to the formation of stones in either organ, or cystitis which is also incredibly unpleasant. A delay before urination in public restrooms is perfectly natural … it’s a natural survival reaction – we are vulnerable while urinating and thus need to ensure that the environment is safe before we proceed. The issue with this slight pause before releasing is that for Paruresis sufferers, it sends panic signals to the brain. As a result, this further delays the process and a vicious cycle starts.  As anxiety levels increase, the brain views the environment as being more and more unsafe. As a result, the body’s internal sphincter shuts thus making it impossible to urinate. This condition can have a truly debilitating and even incapacitating effect on a person’s life. Continual sufferers of the condition may avoid travelling a long way from home, simply to avoid being put in potentially distressing situations. Shy Bladder Syndrome is often traced back to a bathroom experience that triggered a lot of anxiety. From then on, the person simply couldn’t ‘go’.  Although, traumatic occurances during adolescence tends to be what the bulk of sufferers blame their condition on.  These events generally involve some type of teasing or harassment whilst trying to use the restroom. When Paruresis sufferers need to go to the bathroom but can’t while others are present, the subconscious mind believes you need to be safeguarded and consequently inhibits urination to ensure your basic safety. Hypnotherapy is the one and only cure. It will retrain your unconscious mind to feel relaxed so that you can pee normally. Imagine being able to stroll into a bathroom, do your business, clean your hands, and walk out confidently without giving a second thought to the problem that once imprisoned you. It’s time for you to be cured. It’s time to reclaim your life. Put an end to your Paruresis today.
