It happens to all of us to feel bloated, swollen and uncomfortable. This is quite normal when one has a digestive disorder. Digestive problems are very common but can be cured very easily. But before that, it is necessary to know the reasons and take the necessary precautions to avoid its occurrence.
Bloating is the feeling of having the bloated and swollen stomach. This creates a physical and psychological discomfort especially among women who hardly tolerate this discomfort. But what causes bloating?
The causes bloating
Candidiasis are kind of pathogenic fungi of the yeast family that appear following an imbalance of intestinal flora. This occurs when the body can’t longer defend itself against bacteria. It is due to the absorption of antibiotics for a long time may create a deficiency of the immune system of the body and cause the intestinal yeast.
To combat intestinal candidiasis, it is necessary to consume probiotics; they will restore the intestinal flora, or you should follow a diet without sugar.
Bloating can also be caused by food intolerance due to incompatibility with certain foods. This causes inflammation in the intestines, irritates the intestinal tract and cause feelings of bloating. The foods that are most likely to cause food allergies are dairy products, eggs, some fruits such as citrus fruits, nuts, peanuts, some cereals, etc.
Gluten intolerance or celiac disease
Celiac disease is a high level of gluten intolerance. Gluten is a protein which is essentially found in wheat. If this protein is digested poorly it can cause bloating and digestive problems such as diarrhea and flatulence.
In which case, the only solution is to follow a strict gluten-free diet, but before you have to ensure that you are gluten intolerant by medical tests. You can also replace wheat, barley and eggs with other foods, such as rice, quinoa, soybeans, sweet potatoes, etc.
Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas that helps to master the glucose in the blood. In a healthy person’s insulin production orders the cells of the body to use sugar and fats. The intolerance to insulin occurs when the cells in question do not obey the orders given by insulin.
The intolerance to insulin is treated by following special diets accompanied by physical exercises. It is important to reduce the sugar and carbohydrates in the diet, and increase doses of protein, fiber and good fats. Physical exercise should be regular and frequent too.
Bloating occurs when our diet is not balanced. Doctors recommend eating everything, i.e. balanced intake of protein, fiber, vegetables, fruits, cereals. Too much protein or too much fruit necessarily create a digestive imbalance and leads eventually to bloating and flatulence.
Eating at different times
We were always told from the early age, to not skip the meals, to eat at inappropriate times, to snack between meals, to avoid eating late at night, because of the risk of belly swell. Our digestive system needs discipline. For this, we must bring it food at convenient times, to take a rich breakfast and impoverish the meals during the day, to avoid eating light at night, and especially to nibble.
Deficiency of digestive enzymes
Digestive enzymes are secreted by the pancreas to help the stomach to break down and digest the nutrients. If these enzymes are found in small quantities, the food in the stomach is not well broken down and this causes a sort of gastric pain and bloating. Deficiencies of digestive enzymes may be caused by the proliferation of bacteria, yeasts, parasites and stress.
Lactose intolerance is a form of digestive enzyme deficiency because the lactose is not properly broken down in the body, which explains the poor digestion of dairy products. The solution is to avoid dairy products (replace cow’s milk with vegetable milk like almond milk) and consume digestive enzymes as food supplements.
