Bloating is a natural process of your body. In normal situations, half of your stomach and intestines is filled with gas. More gases are produced as the result of the work of your intestinal microflora microorganisms, the bacteria that help the digestion.
Here are 9 ways to prevent bloating and get rid of a bloated belly:
1. Massage that will reduce gas formation and relieve your stomach
Start at the navel. Place 4 fingers above it. The right point is above your upper finger. Massage the point clockwise, 2-3 minutes and then counter-clockwise, 2-3 minutes.
2. Stomach pain massage
This point is located one finger above the navel. Press the point and massage it 2-3 minutes clockwise and then counter clockwise.
3. Increase the intestinal activity
Place your 4 fingers below the navel. The point is located under your little finger. Massage that point 2-3 minutes clockwise and then counterclockwise.
4. Start your day with a glass of warm water and lemon
Start your day with a glass of warm water and lemon to relieve heartburn symptoms, normalize the secretion of gastric acids and prevent gas formation. Lemon also contains a lot of vitamin C which is great for your overall health.
5. Drink ginger tea
Ginger can help you calm your stomach and reduce gas formation. It will also improve your blood
6. Don’t eat too much fatty food
Fast food, sweets and fatty foods are heavy and stay a lot of time in the stomach during digestion. The harder the food digests, the more gases it produces. Eat foods that contain less fats to prevent bloating and gases.
7. Don’t eat air
When we chew bad, talk while eating, smoke and drink carbonated drinks, we swallow a lot of air. That excess air is not dangerous, but it can cause bloating and gases.
8. Don’t consume foods that contain lots of fibers
Foods that are extremely rich in fibers can cause gas formation. A lot of fibers also slow down the intestinal functioning.
9. Relax and sleep well
Stress and anxiety can cause bloating and digestion disbalance. Try to relax more and improve your sleep. Lack of sleep can be quite a stress on the body too.
