Let's be honest, there's nothing funny about gas. Except maybe the slightly amusing sound it makes when you let one rip. But other than that, it's just plain uncomfortable and embarrassing. Whether you're dealing with excess air in your digestive system or some other underlying issue causing bloating and discomfort, here are some quick tips to help you beat the bloat.
Drink plenty of water
If you're feeling bloated and gassy, drinking more water might seem counterintuitive but hear me out on this one. When we're dehydrated, our bodies tend to retain fluids as a defense mechanism against further hydration loss. This can lead to bloating and swelling in various parts of our bodies including our abdomen which may cause extra pressure on our stomachs leading to more gas production (not ideal).
Drinking enough water helps flush out excess fluid from tissues and passed onto kidneys urinating them out later over time (keep it flowing!).
Avoid foods that produce extra gas
We all know that certain food items tend to make us feel gassier than usual so if those types happen regularly then it might be good idea avoid into incorporating into meals as much possible by alternatives substitutes for these products otherwise incorporate is potential antagonists (no need adding insult injury instead doing specific thing which each person believe could sidestep problem aheadtime).
So a few examples of foods high in fermentable carbohydrates aka FODMAPS include beans lentils wheat onion garlic apples pears honey milk yogurt Brussels sprouts (might wanna leave tarting up salads deserts only! ← joking btw...maybe?) raw carrots sweet potatoes (roasted much easier digestion) cabbage sugar-free gum soft drinks caffeinated beverages (water rocks Dude/Dudette!)(but don't drink too much at once - can also cause stomach pain ) and alcohol.
Eating your meals slowly
Eating quickly may seem like a time saver, but it increases the amount of air you swallow while eating. And more swallowed air means more gas production which could lead to bloating and discomfort (oh no my 10 min lunch break strategy scheme plan failed).
So take smaller bites, chew thoroughly before swallowing without forgetting to savoring each mouthful (it can also enhance appreciation taste).
Consider taking digestive enzymes
"Digestive enzymes are compounds vital for appropriate processing of food. They breakdown proteins fats and carbohydrates so our bodies can absorb them better." If people's digestion isn’t working effectively or some foods causing excess gas then supplementing with digestive enzyme might help relieve some symptoms maybe prove beneficial aiding overall digestion optimally decrease flatulence (reduce fart noises in office).
Some types of over-the-counter digestive enzyme supplements include amylase protease lipase lactase bromelain papain betaine HCL.
Note: It is always best to consult your doctor or healthcare professional before trying any new supplements especially if we don't know what effects they will have on your specific wellness regime.
Getting regular physical activity helps keep our body systems running smoothly by increasing blood flow improving oxygenation in tissues muscles organs can ease up bowel function reducing constipation hence making things flow smootherly like water outta hose pipe rather than clogged up (eugh!)
Try options activities that gently stimulate stomach such as walking briskly gentle/meditative Yoga Pilates circuits aimed at core abdominal strengthening even just taking stairs instead lifts wherever possible- oh come now surely stretching legs once awhile improve mood give confidence?!
Keeping your gut healthy
Your gut microbiome plays an essential role in digestion, nutrient absorption , immune system, control endocrine functions influencing hormones positve feedback mechanism whilst central nervous system interconnects balance all bodily functions thus building great relationship particularly important optimum digestive health.
So incorporate probiotic foods into our diet like kefir, yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut (fermented veggies) or supplement containing bacterial strains conducive for healthy gut microbes could support lower risk gastrointestinal diseases boosting nutrient status overall mental well being alongside physical wellness (sounds great considering current climate).
Try relaxation techniques
Stress is the silent killer- it can affect all areas of life yet people tend to ignore it because they think stressing help in someway others tell them hold firmly onto their anxiety levels until eventually drive oneself completely bonkers!
Whether dealing with work-related stressors family problems any internal emotional turmoil alas panic attack feeling overburdened practices such as meditation deep breathing exercises listening soothing music smiley face pillow holding visualizing happy thoughts exercising creativities improving mood by activiating feel good hormones screaming frog outside window helps alot!!!
By lowering cortisol levels regulating heart rate blood pressure we send signal that everything going be fine releasing body tension built up often causing pain bloating gas production hoorah!! (Keep calm and carry on don't we always say?)
In conclusion there's no one-size-fits-all solution when trying reduce gas symptoms but these tips will get you started moving forward towards happier healthier "fashionable-use zero size" selves. Don’t give up when failure is not an option…well maybe sometimes...but probably shouldn't! Remember lifestyle changes may take time gradual steps promising fulfilling long term outcome envisioning success rather than anticipating basic illusions (only ever possible virtually).
