Excessive Gas and Bloating

Stomach bloating causes...and how to relieve bloating?

Here is a list of the causes of bloating

  • Not chewing slowly and not eating slowly in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Lack of digestive enzymes to digest and assimilate the food
  • Intestinal transit time that is too slow, ie constipation that results in foods putrefying in the colon.
  • A liver that is engorged
  • Lack of bile salts to break down fats
  • An accumulation of fecal matter on the lining of the intestine
  • Poor food combining, especially sugars and starches, ie fruits and vegetables eaten at the same time
  • Parasites
  • Eating foods that are difficult to digest

When bloating of the stomach occurs around the abdominal area, the cause is usually intestinal. If it is situated further up, right under the chest, it can be the gall bladder or liver.
