How to Help Reduce Bloating

How to Help Reduce Bloating


– I always, every time
a motorbike comes past, I feel like Gran Torino, like damn kids, get off my lawn. How do I get rid of bloating? This is a really interesting question, and it’s definitely one that I feel like I’m quite proficient to answer. I do experience a little bit of bloating definitely on a more regular basis, whether it’s because I’ve eaten too much, or accidentally eaten a
whole block of cheese, happens more than you might think. But yes, bloating can
be really uncomfortable, really frustrating when particularly if you have somewhere to go. So, yeah, these are the three
things that I do for bloating. I think they work really well, but everybody’s different so if it’s something that’s
happening to you all the time, it may be worth having a chat to us, or having a chat to your
health care professional, sort of see what’s going on in your gut. But it’s sort of a few
simple tips and simple fixes. These are the three things I
do on a fairly regular basis. So the first thing I do
to help reduce bloating is definitely up my water
intake a little bit. So this, for me, is just sipping on water throughout the day, maybe a bit more than I would normally. I’m definitely not saying
to chug this whole bottle or a whole litre of water, because that might, if
anything, make you feel worse. Particularly if I’ve
had a lot of salty food the night before or something like that, water just helps to kind
of cleanse a little bit, help to flush out maybe a
little bit of the nasties. So, for me, drinking a lot of water and sipping it kind of
evenly throughout the day, that’s really helpful. So the second thing I find really helpful when I am experiencing bloating is definitely some light stretching. So I’m not one to kind of
stretch to the point of pain, I don’t know that that is
altogether that beneficial, but just some yoga movements and light kind of like seated twists, cat cow pose, downward dog pose. I find that these just
really help to introduce a little bit of movement if
you are feeling kind of stuck and also just help to
relieve some of the tension and uncomfortability that
can be related with bloating. So the third and final thing I
will do to help with bloating is take my Gut Performance. I take this every morning religiously just to help with my general gut health. But if I am feeling a
little on the bloated side, whether or not I’ve had a big meal or it’s just something
that doesn’t agree with me, I will take this in the
afternoon or the evening. I do find that sort of a
half an hour after taking it, it is starting to work its way through and relieving some of the tension. And sort of worst case scenario,
if I take it before bed, I do find that it will help
me feel a lot less bloated when I wake up the following morning. And they are the three handy tips that I have for reducing bloating. If you have any ideas yourself or methods that you
use to reduce bloating, I would love it if you would share it with myself and our community by leaving a comment in
