So what causes bloating? What helps get rid of it? And when should you speak to your doctor?

I'm going to tell you all of this and more in this week's video

now we all know the feeling of being bloated when you tummy is stretched puffy and

generally being uncomfortable bloating often happens after a big weekend of eating

especially during the festive periods but if it's more than an occasional

inconvenience then you should definitely visit your doctor so they can

investigate this further but the good news is that if bloating is just an

occasional inconvenience there's various things that you can do to help prevent

it so what we're waiting for let's dive in so bloating can be caused by many

different things such as constipation excess wind food intolerance swallowing

air coeliac disease and even irritable bowel syndrome so let's run through each

one of these and learn more about them so first up we have excess wind now we

know that certain foods can increase our wind and cause bloating so for instance

beans onions sprouts broccoli cauliflower and cabbage can all increase

this so try and cook these down and also try and maintain your five a day of fruit

and veg though so I'll leave a really useful link in the description below

which should help you with this next up we have slowing air now I know it sounds

strange but it can actually make bloating worse and by the way swallowing

air doesn't mean doing this because because nobody does that so the fact is

that we all swallow air and it's usually when we're eating food so there are

things that you can do to help reduce this so for instance when you're eating

don't speak at the same time don't slump sit upright avoid fizzy drinks and when

you're chewing gum chew is your mouth shut but I'm sure you already do that

which moves us onto food intolerance now it can cause bloating when your bowels

don't empty properly and the food produces too much gas which gets trapped

now the main offenders are wheat or gluten and dairy products but we're all

different so the best advice I can give you is to keep a food diary for a few

weeks write down everything you eat right down

when you're bloating is worse and try and find the correlation and if you have

a food intolerance or you spot a correlation then start to eat less of

that food or cut it out completely and see how you get on I wouldn't recommend

that you cut out a food group entirely without speak to your doctor first for

their recommendation I'll also leave a really useful link in the description

below and more information on this which I think you may find helpful

if you get constipation it can cause bloating now there's so many things that

you can do to help get rid of it so just drinking more water eating more fiber

and doing more exercise now I did make a video on this a couple

of weeks ago with loads more tips and information on it so if you do suffer

from constipation I'd highly recommend that you watch it I'll leave a link up

here and down in the description below for you next we have coeliac disease and bloating

so coeliac disease is a common digestive disorder where the intestine can't

absorb gluten found in wheat barley and rye so when you have foods containing

gluten it causes bloating it causes abdominal pain diarrhea and even fatigue

now coeliac disease affects 1 in 100 people in the UK so it's quite common if

you think you might have it speak to your doctor said it can investigate this

further you can also try and switch to a gluten-free diet and see if it has any

benefits I've also left more information in the description below

with some really useful links and lastly we have irritable bowel syndrome now

people with IBS usually suffer with bloating more in the evening and the

reason that they're getting bloating isn't usually linked to excessive wind but

more due to the erratic movements of the bowel now if you want more information

on IBS I've left loads more in the description below for you and that's the

end of this week's video I really hope my tips help you but please remember

that if you're bloating persists or it's more than the occasional inconvenience

then please speak to your doctor so they can investigate further and rule out

anything more serious see you next week beans onions cauliflower sprouts cabbage
