Bloating isn't a medical condition. It doesn't necessarily mean that a person has eaten too much. It can be a case of eating wrong food which has not been digested by the body. Bloating occurs when air and water get trapped inside the stomach or intestine. As a result, the stomach gets swollen well past its normal level. (Learn more about stomach problem)
Culprits of bloating:Bloating can result from a number of cases. Fatty or junk foods are one of the biggest culprits of bloating. It hinders the digestion process and doesn't let the stomach empty on time. Carbohydrates too can cause bloating. Even carbonated drinks can play spoilsport. It creates bubbles in the stomach leading to indigestion and bloating. Some food items related to gas include cauliflower, lettuce, hard candy, beans, Brussels sprouts, broccoli etc. Apart from this, consumption of excessive junk food and soft drinks can lead to bloating.
Steps to avoid bloating: The best way to avoid bloating is to refrain from bloat causing foods as mentioned earlier. If you wear dentures (know more about dentures), it should be ensured that it fits properly. There are instances when excess air gets inside the stomach due to an improper fixture of denture leading to bloating. Eating or drinking slowly is another good way of staying away from bloating. When you eat slowly, there are fewer chances of extra air getting inside the stomach. In the case of beverage consumption, avoiding the straw is a good idea. This way the unwanted air cannot make their way inside the tummy and play foul.
Taking a small walk after every meal is another good way of staying away from bloating. This way the gas inside the tummy cannot rise above the surface. The practice of calming technique such as yoga, deep breathing and meditation also goes a long way in giving relief from bloating.
Some home remedies to get rid of bloating include:
- A cup of ginger, lemon and honey in a cup of hot water once everyday
- 1 cup of herbal peppermint tea freshly prepared in boiled water
- In the case of regular stomach bloating, intake of one caraway seed on a daily basis fetches immediate results
- Consumption of a cup of baked pumpkin twice a week
- Consumption of warm lemon water before you start your day is another good way of keeping bloating at bay.
Bloating can also be a symptom of other intestinal related problems as well. If the general method of control and measured diet doesn't suffice, it is time to visit a doctor to find the underlying cause of your problem. Doctors perform a series of tests to understand the problem and prescribe the required medicine to control or cure the problem.

Doctor, whenever I eat my meals, i’m getting the urge to defecate, whenever I finish breakfast, I get the urge, my stools are never solid etc.”- these kinds of patient’s presentations are quite common in ibs. This is a chronic, not easy to treat and frustration inducing disease.
Common symptoms of IBS-
- Abdominal pain and discomfort.
- Abdominal contraction increases after eating.
- Abdominal cramps with bloating.
- Feeling of unclear bowel.
- Chronic diarrhea, constipation or a combination of both.
Ayurveda explains ibs as grahani signs and symptoms are based on dosha dominance i.e. Vataj, pittaj, kaphaj grahani.
Line of treatment in ibs-
The medicines should have following qualities: deepana – carminative property, pachana – digestive, sangrahi – intestinal restorative, which increases absorption capacity of intestines laghu – lightness in the body
Home remedies for grahani (ibs)-
Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber required for the swift and comprehensive passage of waste products. Plus, flaxseed is a good supplier of omega-3 essential fatty acids that are known to support the immune and digestive systems. Both constipation and diarrhea can be treated with flaxseed.
Add one teaspoon of flaxseed to one cup of boiling water. Steep for five to 10 minutes and then drink this herbal tea before going to bed. Drink daily to keep your stomach clean and free from gas.
Peppermint contains menthol oil, which has an antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of the digestive tract. This helps relieve bloating, gas pain and intestinal spasms. Plus, peppermint can help food pass through the stomach easily.
Add two or three drops of peppermint oil to one-fourth cup of warm water. Drink it twice a day. Continue until there is improvement in your condition.

3. Fennel seeds
Fennel seeds can relieve the intestinal spasms and bloating commonly associated with ibs. Plus, fennel seeds play a key role in eliminating fats from the digestive system, thus inhibiting the over-production of mucus in the intestine that contributes to ibs.
You can take one-half teaspoon of dry roasted fennel seeds powder twice daily with warm water.
Ginger can reduce gas and bloating, hence it is often recommended for treating ibs. Also, ginger can reduce inflammation in the intestines and relax the intestinal muscles.
Grate a small piece of ginger and add one teaspoon of honey to it. Eat this mixture before having your lunch and dinner to get rid of diarrhea as well as improve your digestive process.
Note: Those suffering from high blood pressure should not use ginger remedies
Carrots are a good source of pectin that can help prevent ibs symptoms as well as treat diarrhea and constipation.
Blend soft, cooked carrots in a blender with a little water to make puree. Add a little salt and eat one-half cup of carrot puree several times a day.
