Here are 10 remedies for a bloated stomach:
1. Drink Lemon Water
Lemon juice is a natural diuretic, in that it increases the amount of water and salt that the body passes as urine. As such, lemon water is a good remedy for the discomfort that is caused by consumption of excess sodium. High sodium levels in the body trick the body system into retaining water since the system perceives that the person is dehydrated. You could squeeze half a lemon in warm water and drink it as a remedy. You may add a teaspoon of honey to make the concoction palatable.
Probiotics are an excellent source of the good bacteria that your regular doctor keeps talking about. Probiotics are naturally present in plants such as kimchi, sauerkraut, temper, and kefir. Dr. Robynne Chutkan, the founder of the Digestive Center for Women, reiterates that live bacteria address the imbalance problem in the gut flora. Such plant-based probiotics, as well as yogurt, also improve digestion and therefore, alleviate stomach swelling.
3. Drink Herbal Teas
Herbal teas including green tea, chamomile tea, and peppermint tea are full of antioxidants that aid to assuage inflammation in the body. You could take warm herbal tea at least twice a day to help with a bloated abdomen.
