Love Your Gut: Bloating (+ free ebook)
Feeling bloated is a common digestive health concern and can make you feel quite uncomfortable from the inside and outside. But what might cause it, and most importantly how to get rid of it? Upāya Wellbeing’s owner and Clinical Nutritionist explains Jan Denecke
The cause of bloating
As Clinical Nutritionist I worked for gastroenterologists at Macquarie University Hospital. Not only here but also in my own clinic I have seen and supported hundreds of people suffering from several gut-related issues. In this, bloating is one of the most common problems. Occasional bloating is normal. It could be because you had a fibre-rich meal, or eaten some typical bloating foods such as onion, cabbage, or garlic. But chronic bloating might be a sign that your gut is not happy with the foods you eat and your lifestyle.
Up to 30% of Australians regularly experience bloating to an extend that it can be excessive. I have heard many stresses and concerns around bloating such as:
- Stressing what foods might cause it
- Constantly looking the for nearest toilet
- Covering a bloated belly
- Feeling tired and foggy when bloated
- Stomach ache
- Visiting specialist after specialist without result
- People saying you its all in the head
- Feeling upset, stressed out and misunderstood
