Try this it worked for me. This will heal your gut. You'll see the result after a few days. Also avoid fried and fatty foods. No need to take any meds. Try it. Good luck.

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:)

And then I tried organic Apple Cider Vinegar. 1 TBPS, 1 cup hot water, 1 TBPS honey every morning. I have been doing this for about 7 weeks and this is all I have for breakfast. I will then eat a snack about 10 am. I am absolutely blown away with how much better I feel. I'm not constipated any more and all my bloating symptoms are gone with the exception of 2-3 days associated with my period. After I drink it my stomach feels warm and comfortable and I no longer look like I'm 6 months pregnant half the time. Who would have thought that a product that is so affordable and easy to implement would have such an effect.
@Jayadurga (post from 2008) No, I have not had any depression. However, I have noticed more arthritis pain. I don't know if there is a connection because I know someone who is taking ACV to relieve arthritis pain.

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 ..
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 ..

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........

Don't eat wheat, milk or sugar.
Coffee is a diuretic, but if you use it too much it can cause bloating because it causes your body to want to retain salt. It is also said to suppress the body's healing process and to leach minerals from bones and create an overly acidic body. It can raise your blood pressure to the extent that the tiny blood vessels in your eyes and kidneys can be damaged. It also impairs memory because it puts your body in the "fight or flight" mode - a type of "overdrive" which naturally changes how you remember things.
Don't take aspirin, especially with coffee on an empty stomach. It can cause ulcers in the stomach. If you dissolve the aspirin in water and drink it it is less likely to cause an ulcer.
Take kelp powder, spirulina, hemp seed powder, eat fresh parsley, fresh broccoli. Eat raw cucumbers, squash and pumpkin. Try raw eggs if you're brave, whole milk cottage cheese, 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp. ginger powder in hot milk. Hot milk with 1/2 tsp. cumin powder.
If you have bloating from leaky gut avoid scratchy foods like popcorn, crushed black pepper granules, strawberries (seeds), whole wheat bread. Don't take crushed flax seed.
Azithromiacin or another antibiotic may help if the bloating is from an infection.
Fennel seed tea, fresh apples help settle digestion.
Hawthorn and hibiscus may help, too.

I now take 1 tsp in 1 cup of warm water before bed and the burping helps to release all the stomach pressure that can't get out which really helps me sleep better. Also, as a side benefit, it helps me sleep solid through the night. I went off of the valiarian root I was taking for sleep because the baking soda was doing such a great job. I sometimes take a dose in the morning as well to help with alkininity.
As a side note, it's also been helping me get rid of parasites, deal with acidity issues, and inflammation (it really soothes my brain and other irritated body parts). Oh I forgot! It also soothes bladder pain; I haven't had it anymore so I totally forgot about that. It's a fantastic remedy for many things. Hope this helps someone like it did for me! :)

Hi, I have soft yellow stools, massive bloating every time I eat and gas. I have tried many cures which have done not very much - clarkia I shed some white bits in my stools for a few days but then I stopped it and went onto H2O2, Diatomaceous earth did nothing, mms gave me severe cramping so I discontinued it and am now on H2o2. What I would like to know is could the worms I found in my stool - 2 different types - one a roundworm and other other unidentifiable (and I did a metametrix test which came up with pin worm but no others). So could the worms in my stool really be giving me this 10 months pregnant bloating after I eat something or could it be something else? Hope you can help. I am desperate.

My answer to inflammation, swelling, bloating, etc is to give up all the white stuff: everything made with wheat, potatos (big culprit), rice, excess sugar or replacements and grains as a whole. I know for some people it's not easy but at the same time it's easier than it seems. I increased proteins (chicken, fish, beef) consumption and vegetables and fruits. The more protein the less cravings yo have.
Do you see animals eating grains in the wild? Maybe I am wrong, but animals in nature eat each other or they eat plants, leaves, fruits, seeds and other animal's eggs.
Grains are hard to digest, we need to take out the bran in order to eat them (as rice, oats, wheat, etc) or soak them for hours to soften them (chicken peas, beans, etc). I wonder: Is it nature trying to tell us something? Anyway, let me assure you: If you really want to improve your health forget at least about everything and I mean everything made with wheat and avoid potatos and rice at least.

I cut out from my diet all sugar (including fruit), all dairy except butter, all gluten (like wheat and rice), all alcohol, and all beans. I use the proper food combining technique which I'm sure is easy available on the web (never eat protein and starch together in a meal). I now eat fresh and cooked vegies, organic meats, and non-glutenous grains as my diet. I think it helps to cut out nuts also, but I do eat sunflower seeds as a snack and drink kefir. I am also taking a probiotic formula twice a day, and with each meal I take a digestive enzyme supplement that has I think 8 different types of enzymes.
Let me tell you, in two weeks my belly is flat as a board and it looks like I have been working out! I definitely haven't been working out, but I am soooo happy that the bloat is gone and all the agony of leaving sugar and alcohol behind has been worth it. My allergies have also gone away. I drink a tiny amount of coffee in the morning with no sweetener.
I'm sure that this regime is not for everyone since it is incredibly difficult to maintain, but the way I feel and look now is astonishing compared to two short weeks ago.
Good luck to anyone out there who is bloating, I know from experience that it can make life hard.

Recently, my feet started swelling along with blood pressure spiking to very high levels. I do not have high blood pressure so I could not understand what was going on. By day three I figured out I had a tooth infection that was probably starting to seep into my blood causing the swelling, blood pressure spikes, tingling in head, legs, and feet. After speaking with a dentist who felt they were unrelated and would not give me any advice on whether I should go to the ER, I decided to use garlic infused with yogurt (yogurt helps it go down easier). I took about 1 T. of crushed garlic and 1 T. of yogurt. Within 5 minutes the swelling in my feet went away and I felt my blood pressure had gone down. I took my blood pressure and it had dropped over 50 points! Obviously, the blood pressure spikes were brought on by the tooth infection, unbeknownst to the young Dentist!!!
I cook with garlic all of the time, but RAW GARLIC is terrific for blood pressure and infections!!!
