Had issues with bloating, (Age 60+) Always felt like... all I needed was a good burp.... after I ate but I could not get a natural one out.... until the probiotics ...It was very painful, it was so bad, I thought it might be a heart attack...upper chest pressure felt like I was going to explode, first thing Doctor wanted to do was to rip out my gallbladder, no test no alternative fixes to try, except just rip out the gallbladder. Healer my ass, anyways this went on for years, just ran across a thought and tried it, Probiotic [email protected] 25 billion to start it seems to have stopped it right in its tracks, need to keep myself well hydrated especially before meals, 8oz or more of reverse osmosis water, I cant bring myself to drink municipal tap water. Anyways if you have stomach problems and baking soda re-leaves it only temporarily, check it out, its so nice to be able to eat (within limits) what we have been led to believe... is normal food again.

Also related to this or not, my contact dermatitis is due to an allergy of the Hair Dye my wife was using (unceasing severe burning and weeping eyes) for some 3 or 4 years, prednazone was used to bring this under control but would always come back. Avoid this poison at all cost.

Just a thought is all........

Warning

Probiotics are not for everyone. I ended up in the E.R. from taking just one cup of Kefir and a serving of Yakult. Whether it is "die off" or not, three weeks later, and I feel like the bottom of my stomach is going to fall out.

While most people have no problems with probiotics, some people like myself, have adverse reactions to the cultures in these fermented products. The E.R. doctor says he sees a lot of people coming in doing detox diets and that these products are not regulated as to how much bacteria is put in. Apparently, the bacteria in these products did not mix with my system, and I am still feeling the aftermath.

Be careful.

I am so sorry, I didn't mention that it was a GNC Probiotic Complex product, in 1 capsule a day form @ 25 billion CFU, I have tried kefir with no side effects that I am aware of, but did not notice any difference with my bloating/gut/intestinal issues. Also I noticed incredible relief from this issue if I eat sauerkraut before or during meals.

Hope this helps you out.

Be well

Hello, I have very large fibroids for years now. Like clockwork I would get severe bloating right before my cycle. So severe that I could look anywhere from 3-6 months pregnant. If lucky the bloating would go away as soon as my cycle started. This severe bloating was absolutely depressing. My stomach felt hard & uncomfortable...I couldn't fit my clothes and had to go through all types of measures in an attempt to hide my mid-section. People would routinely ask me if I was pregnant which was also depressing because I wasn't. I felt insecure, ugly & untouchable. I wasn't sure what to do about it (the bloating) while still battling what I could do to get rid of my fibroids without surgery. I tried different things that didn't work for the bloating including ACV (pills & in water). Diuretic pills worked great but they were expensive (I'm frugal) and served only the purpose of helping with bloat.

Anyhow in seeking a solution to reduce my fibroids I recently started taking Vitamin C. I now take between 1000-6000mg of Vitamin C EVERYDAY and it has completely prevented premenstrual bloat. I take 1 Vitamin C pill (1000mg) with a bottle of water a few times a day. If I have 500mg Vitamin C pills, I take a few at a time a few times a day.

Vitamin C also from everything I have researched is great for your skin & liver so overall it is a worthwhile endeavor. I highly recommend adding daily Vitamin C as a way to fend off bloating issues. I don't like the chewables and haven't experienced any drawbacks from taking Vitamin C in large doses. Some research also recommends high dose daily Vitamin C for general health purposes. It is also recommended to space out the dosages throughout the day for better absorption. I still drink orange juice regularly also.

I hope this info helps others:)

Remedy for Foamy Saliva, Excessive Saliva Production, Bloating

Saliva is foamy because there are many air bubbles in it , and air bubbles are result of dehydration , when you're dehydrated your salivary glands can't make saliva properly, so because of lack of water there are much air bubbles in it ..

Your body produce saliva to help digesting the food, when your stomach can't digest the food, body produce saliva ( ofcourse it is not the only reason of saliva excretion , but this is one of many ) to help your upset stomach ..

My history:

I'm suffering from esophagitis caused by gerd and duodenitis .. Even drinking water itself made me feel bloated ..

How I stopped saliva production:

As I even wasn't able to drink water without getting sick , I used to put a glass of water beside me, and sipping on it every once in awhile , specially right after I felt bloated or burp painfully, just after some days I got better, no more foamy saliva in my mouth and saliva production completely went away and I never felt bloated that bad again, and everytime felt a bit bloated, just sipped on water and everything came back to normal so fast cause now I know what my body is trying to tell me ..

Hope it helps somebody cause this situation really hurts and interferes with life activities ..
