Bloating has many different causes. If you feel bloated today, you might think you’ve eaten something bad. In fact, it may have lots of causes. Here’s a short investigation into the reasons for bloating. What is more, you’ll get 7 proven techniques that will help you deal with it and prevent bloating in the future.
Bloating is the feeling of an overfull stomach that causes discomfort. It happens to everyone at least once in their lifetime. Bloating is associated with food and that is almost true - when bloating occurs, it is about your digestive tract. It is often accompanied by excessive gas, frequent belching, burping, or pain.
Gas after eating is the most common cause of bloating. It builds up in your digestive tract when undigested food gets broken down or when you swallow air. Everyone swallows air when they eat or drink. But some people swallow more air if they are chewing gum, eating too fast, smoking, or wearing loose dentures.
Among other medical reasons for abdominal bloating are indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), some food intolerances and allergies, infections that affect the digestive tract (H. pylori, E.coli, giardiasis, amebiasis, hookworm-related infections), hormonal changes and PMS in women, intestinal obstruction, gastroparesis, and anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders.
If you adopt these simple lifestyle changes, you might be able to forget about bloating forever.
If you have changed your lifestyle but experience bloating anyway, it’s recommended that you see your healthcare provider to find out the cause and possible treatment for it.
