NATURAL WAYS TO HANDLE AND ALSO PREVENT BLOATED TOMMY

Lets face it majority of women have this problem and many have learned to bare it and take it as one of the discomforts of every day life. usually, intestinal gas is harmless but most times it can make you fell so uncomfortable in more ways than one.I was a victim of this ailment for sometime until I resolved not to remain complacent about it anymore and search for natural ways to deal with it Because there are so many possible causes there are also many ways to treat it with simple natural remedies.and it is with greatest delight that I want to share what has worked for me and also hope it works for all you women out there.
Lets begin with preventive measures because I discovered that there are little things one can do to prevent the bloating.
1.Always allow your previous meals to digest completely before the next meal that means allowing at least 3 hours between meals.and then always eat only when you are hungry.and try not to eat fruits after a meal they do not go well together
2.Try not to drink any cold water or any other cold drinks while eating.or immediately after food.it is better to wait for at least an hour after food to drink water.this is because any kind of fluid at this time dilutes the digestive juices making it harder for food ingested to be easily digested.
Try not to use straws for your drink When you sip through a straw, you're sucking in air along with your drink. The air collects in your stomach and leads to bloating. If you tend to use a straw every time you have a drink, try switching it up and going without. You may find that you're less bloated when you don't use one.
Stop chewing gum. When we chew gum we tend to open our mouths and swallow air between bites. Sometimes bloating can be eliminated by simply stopping one's chewing gum habit. Popping a piece of gum after every meal may be a bigger problem than the salt and starches you ingested!
If for any reason you were not able to prevent the bloating and it occurs there are still some natural remedies  to  try and these include doing about 5 minutes of deep abdominal breathing and also try breathing in deeply while laying on your left side.
You could also lie flat on your back  while rubbing your stomach with a circular motion for about 15 minutes or until the gas passes out
Drinking a lot of water also helps and also taking magnesium supplements also helps considerable in reducing bloating because it is  known to reduce fluid retention.
.Eating of foods like yogurt ,contain probiotics, microorganisms that create a healthy environment in the gut and reduce painful gas and bloating. Eating a serving size of yogurt every day is a good way to fend out bouts of gas and reduce bloating once it starts.also daily intake of Potassium containing foods like banana, mangoes and spinach should become a routine thing for you
  Drink some peppermint tea
Peppermint is great for soothing churning stomachs and easing gas pains. Its essential oil contains menthol, which has an antispasmodic effect of the smooth muscle of the digestive track. It also soothes nerves, and therefore can soothe stomachs that really feel the effect of nervousness and stress. Drink a cup after dinner to help keep things moving slowly
You will need…
-1 bag of herbal peppermint tea
-1 cup or so of freshly boiled water
Taking Ginger tea is also a good remedy for a bloated stomach  It is capable of performing its wonders because of several different chemical components it possesses. Two chemicals-gingerols and shgaols- relax the intestinal track and ease any inflammation, while the root in its entirety act as a carminative-that is it prevents the formation of excess gas, or helps expel it.
You will need…
- 1 fresh ginger root
-A grater (optional)
-1 cup of boiling water, if
-Lemon and honey (optional)
Directions
There are several ways to make ginger root tea but for gas,. Get a medium sized piece of raw ginger root that looks nice and fresh. Scrub it clean, much like a potato, under warm water. Slice 4-6 thin quarter sized pieces and place them in a large mug. Add a touch of honey or lemon if you like, and then pour very hot water over the slices. Don’t let it boil-turn off the kettle just before or immediately afterwards. Cover and steep for 10 minutes before enjoying. Drink a cup before or after a meal to help with digestion.
 Drink chamomile tea
If peppermint doesn't suit your fancy, or doesn't seem to work for you, chamomile is a good route to go. In Germany, a place where herbal treatments are used more frequently than in the west, they call chamomile alles zutraut which translates to “capable of anything,” because it is so useful. Antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and just plain relaxing, chamomile can help with gas due to indigestion as well as heartburn, whereas peppermint is better for gas caused solely by indigestion.
You will need…
-1 bag of chamomile tea
-1 cup or so of freshly boiled water
-honey or lemon juice (optional)
Directions
Boil approximately 1 cup of water and pour over tea bag. Cover the mug, and let the tea steep for a full 10-15 minutes. Squeeze the bag to get out all the last bits of goodness, and add a bit of honey and lemon if you like. Avoid milk, which tends to trigger gas.these are just the few remedies I have tried and it worked for me.hope it works for you

It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over.

Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…
