How to Win the Battle with Constipation and Bloating

Everybody knows that certain kinds of food may cause you to feel bloated and uneasy. If you have ever felt that your insides are beating out a samba after a particular meal, leaving you terribly flatulent, it might be high time for you to reconsider your diet.

Bloating can also make you extremely agitated, especially after feeling gassy for hours on end, so continue reading how you can manage your flatulence better.

Win the Battle with Constipation and Bloating


Firstly, let us take a glance at what makes you feel gassy. As the food you have eaten is being digested by various gas-producing bacteria inside your intestines, a by-product is created in the form of a gas.

This gas is now trapped inside your intestines, causing your stomach and intestines to widen and this is why you seldom feel uneasy and bloated. If the intestines get too wide, it may cause you to feel cramps or even pain.

Yet, one of the reasons why this by-product is created is due to inadequate water intake. Most of us do not have an impaired center for thirst, so trust your natural instinct and have a glass of water whenever you feel thirsty!

Furthermore, drinking water during or after a meal will significantly improve your digestion and might even completely solve your flatulence problem.

Do not confuse soft drinks with plain water: soft drinks contain carbonated water which will only worsen your bloating. Stick to the original nectar of the gods: a standard glass of water!

As you are growing older, you might find that drinking a whole glass of milk might give you great discomfort and gets you running straight to the toilet.

Embrace the fact that your body and needs are changing and consider distributing your daily intake of dairy products into smaller portion throughout the day. Switching to a lactose-free milk or even almond or soy milk might be an even better alternative for others.

Some people might even benefit from consuming live yogurt, kefir or any other probiotic, since they contain bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus which can be rather useful when battling your swollen tummy.

Fibers are another important cause why you are feeling bloated: in fact, many people who have this problem have an unregulated diet that is poor with fiber.

We normally take our fiber by consuming fruits and vegetables, but if you are prone to eating them irregularly, you will have problems with flatulence and even constipation.

Granted, vegetables that contain a substance called raffinose will cause you to feel gassier than others, yet that should not be the reason to avoid them at all: you can still continue to enjoy your delicious dish of broccoli, beans, cabbage, brussels sprouts and asparagus while practicing the subtle art of moderation at the same time.

Remember, a little bit of moderation in your diet goes a long way with your flatulence problems.

Finally, salty food might also make you feel bloated. In fact, the daily salt intake should be limited to no more than one full teaspoon (6 g) per day, while people older than 51 years, or people that have diabetes, high blood pressure, or chronic kidney disease have to limit their salt intake to 0.75 teaspoons (3.75 g) per day at most.

Fortunately, a warm cup of chamomile tea might temporarily soothe your roaring stomach. Some spices, particularly the ones related to cumin, fennel, coriander and caraway can ease the process of how the food is broken down inside your intestines, making you feel less flatulent.

You can try to make your beans less gas—inducing by having them cooked in the liquor from a former batch.

And do not be shy to release that wind in the privacy of your own choosing: it serves as an amazing way to battle your daily stress intake, so trump that anxiety away!

Should you have any questions regarding your abdominal discomfort, always turn to your physician for advice.
