I Feel So Full - How To Get Rid of Bloating Fast?
I Feel So Full - How to Get Rid of Bloating Fast? I used to ask this question. But now, I'm here to answer this question. After all, I manage to find a way to get rid of bloating.
To answer this question, you need to find out YOUR cause of bloating.
Bloating is not a serious ailment, however, there are medical conditions that may be responsible for it, such as bowel obstructions, cirrhosis of the liver, colon or rectal cancer. If the symptoms are severe and persistent it is advisable to see your doctor.
If your doctor has ruled out any of the potential serious illness related to your bloating symptoms, your problem could only be a matter of excessive intestinal gas or indigestion. If that's the case, you can apply home remedies to get rid of bloating fast.
Excessive intestinal gas is mostly related to gas-producing foods. If your bloating is due to excessive gas, you need to know yourself and find out your particular cause, as different people may respond differently to gas-producing foods. Some cannot take onion or potato, some cannot put up with carbonated drinks. Keep a list of those foods and drinks that made you feel bloated and stay away from them.
Another option to deal with excessive gas is to take supplements with digestive enzymes to help absorb intestinal gas and reduce bloating. Activated charcoal can be taken but you need to seek advice from a registered pharmacist before taking any supplements.
Bloating may also be a result of inadequate digestion. If that's your case, then staying away from gas-producing foods or taking supplements may not help much. You may still suffer from bloating after eating, regardless of what you eat. If this happens to you, you can apply a natural remedy - short-term fasting.
Short-term fasting may be one of the best answers to your question of "How to get rid of bloating fast?".
Let's look at it this way. When you feel sick, you stop working, take rest and recover. When you feel tired, you go on holiday and return to work refreshingly. Short-term fasting deals with indigestion in a similar manner. It is an ideal way to rejuvenate your digestive system.
When you "feel so full", go on a 20 to 24 hour fast and your symptom will be eased pretty fast. If you do short-term fasting periodically in an on-going manner, you will find your bloating problem start to bother you less and less.
