BEAT THE BLOAT - pt.2
🧘🏼♀️The amount of questions I received on my “Yoga Poses to Beat The Bloat” post warranted a pt. 2 on how to beat the bloat (and for those of you who asked if Yoga actually can help with bloating and digestion —> YES, 100%)
⚕️While many of you may be able to beat the bloat following these simple suggestions, I do want to note there are a number of medical conditions that could be contributing to your battle with bloating. Ask your doc about pelvic floor dysfunction, IBS, food intolerances etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now for those of us who experience bloating randomly and aren’t sure why, it may be related to the following:
Sugar alcohol’s or processed foods (Sugar free gum / sugar free foods, or even processed foods such as certain protein powder can cause bloating)
Not enough, or in rare occasions, too much fiber. Easy ways to increase fiber intake are through higher fiber foods such as veggies or fiber supplements.
Raw cruciferous veggies (such as kale, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage..) can cause gas / bloating, while cooking them can help make them easier to digest.
Salt causes bloating simply because it causes you to retain extra water.
Eating too much at once can cause excess bloating and discomfort
Irregular sleep patterns and stress can also play a role in bloating and digestive health.
In addition to monitor the potential causes above a few things that may help:
Drinking plenty of water / hot tea
Yoga specifically geared towards digestive support
Eating smaller meals
Taking a digestive enzyme supplement Managing stress / getting plenty of rest
Hope this helps my friends! I know HOW awful bloating can be! Tag a friend who may benefit from these tips!
