It sucks that feeling you’re belly getting big descended, just feeling ugh all the time. It is not a pleasant feeling, and I know when I have bloating, I hate it. So when it comes to bloating,
it can be so confusing for us, even as doctors, to really understand why people have bloating. Here’s the way I like to think about it. There are three main categories when it comes to bloating. One is evolving how we eat. The next one is evolving what we eat. And the next one, it involves what happens after we eat. Let’s discuss these in more detail how we eat.
So how you eat actually affects what is going on when it comes to air going into your GI tract, this is actually called aerophagia or swallowing air is a very common scientific term, and you actually may not realize you’re swallowing a lot more air than what you realize. So have you been told you eat very quickly? Are you a sloppy eater? Or you just,
ah, bring down that food and eat as quickly as you can? You actually may be swallowing more air than what you realize, or you could be, for example, chewing gum. The act of chewing gum can actually affect how much air you get into your stomach to cause bloating to occur. Same thing with using straws as well. Using straws, once again cause you to suck in air.
They actually have more air in your stomach and cause bloating to occur. So how we eat can affect what’s going on inside our gut. What we eat can also be another reason why you’re having bloating. We know there are certain foods that typically cause bloating, beans. I mean, come on, we know this. If you’re a bean eater and you’re complaining of bloating,
come on, you know that beans cause bloating. But other foods that you may not realize that could be healthy for you could be a reason why you’re having bloating. Whether it’s broccoli, apples, pears, pineapples. These are foods called FOD maps. These are foods that have a lot of fermentation in them that produce a lot of gas, a lot of dissension.
But these are not only foods that can eat that. Other foods you actually may be allergic to or have an intolerance to can cause bloating as well, whether it’s dairy, cheese, ice cream, maybe gluten or even other foods that may be causing issues in your gut. And lastly, the third category can be what happens after you eat the food. So there are other conditions going on beyond the stomach to cause bloating,
whether it’s a condition called small intestinal bacterial loci in which you have an over imbalance or a change in a gut marker biome. I’ll put a video up here to explain that. Or maybe it’s a problem with constipation where you’re not moving things out that can cause it more likely for you to be bloated as well. Maybe you suffer from IBS or any number of conditions that go beyond the stomach.
That could be a reason why you’re having the bloating. So now that we know the reasons why you’re having the bloat, what can you do today to eliminate that? My recommendation as your GI doctor, your poop guru, to give you the best tips to help out with bloating. Number one. First thing I tell all my patients, eliminate dairy and artificial sweeteners.
By far, these are the most common reasons to have bloating. If you’re having dairy and you’re having bloating, cut it out. You don’t need this. Or if you may be having artificial sweeteners in your drinks or maybe you’re adding it yourself, get rid of. This is a very common cause for bloating and in fact, artificial sweeteners is a very common ingredient in a lot of the foods that we eat that unfortunately causes bloating.
We can’t digest those sweeteners. It can be like a bong going off inside your stomach, causing the gas and bloating to occur. This is the first thing I tell all my patients to stop and eliminate. Number two, consider adding a gas busting medication than what I recommend. It’s called bino. This is a more potent gas bubbler that really destroys the gas inside your gut.
It works. It’s effective, it helps out. It really helps to destroy that gas and get that taken care of and eliminated from your body. Number three, think about the way you’re eating. Are you eating too fast? Are you using a straw? Are you sucking in air for some reason? Are you chewing gum? Try to do these lifestyle changes to prevent you from swallowing so much air so you don’t have so much gas in your belly.
And if you’re having carbonated drinks, I mean, come on, you are literally drinking an air that has a lot of gas in that. So if you’re doing that, you need to remove that from your diet. Then lastly, try some of these herbs that I recommend, whether it’s chamomile or peppermint tea and ginger, these are very effective natural ways to calm down your stomach,
to help beat the bloat, get you feeling better, and to eliminate that gas. So here’s my call to action to you today. I want you to go through this list, find out what you can change, find out what you can add, and see what you can do to help out with the bloating. Bloating is such a pain in the bottom,
actually in the top. It sucks. It’s terrible. But try to do these simple things to eliminate the bloating, gets you feeling better, and hopefully pop that bubble in your stomach.
