Do you always feel your stomach bloated?
The bloated stomach makes you uncomfortable and causes burping and farting that make people around you uncomfortable unless they are friendly people.
If you feel a bloated stomach all the time, this blog post is for you, and you may be able to learn the cause and home remedies of it.
From the perspective of Oriental Medicine, two main reasons can trigger a bloated stomach: Diet and stress.
If your diet always consists of fried, spicy, cold, raw, processed, and dairy food, you need to consider changing because your digestion system gets weak from it.
Once you have a dysfunctional digestive system, you are more likely to get a bloated stomach.
In addition, stress and anxiety also can be a factor in the bloated stomach.
If you are not good at dealing with stress, take extra care of your mental health.
Here’re some home remedies that you can try to strengthen your stomach, handle your stress and overcome your bloated belly.
・Consume less fried, spicy, cold, raw, processed, and dairy food.
