How to Naturally Overcome Bloating and Gas

Bloated-Stomach orig 

The number one cause of a bloating belly is not flatulence, irritable bowel syndrome or gastrointestinal stress as claimed by many doctors. These are only symptoms, not causes. If you would like to address factors that affect a bloating belly, look no further than food intolerance.

The first step in figuring out the cause of abdominal bloating is determining whether it’s associated with eating or drinking, or both.

Our digestive system simply cannot process everything, and you know best on your own limitations. Not respecting this, and ingesting ingredients that are harmful to you, will inevitably result in undigested food fermenting in the intestines, where bacteria feeds on it, producing yet more gas.

Many people consume dairy their entire lives without realizing that have low grade intolerance. Many of us lack enzymes (lactase) that break down dairy. Rather than try to use supplements and enzymes to facilitate digestion, it is better to find alternatives and avoid dairy products altogether if you are intolerant. Try a week without dairy and see what the results are. You’ll notice the difference in just three or four days if you are intolerant to dairy.
