IBS bloating is from trapped intestinal gas, plusour dysfunctional guts' over-reaction to that gas.
Gas is trapped by the mis-timed, or irregularly timed, bowel contractions that underlie IBS.
Bloating is one of the most frustrating IBS symptoms.
Avoid chewing gum, which can cause you to swallow a lot of air.
Eliminate all carbonated beverages. They're a major IBS trigger for bloating and other symptoms.
Watch out for rapidly fermenting fibers added to processed foods - inulin and FOS can cause terrible bloating. Psyllium can cause bloating as well.
Relieve Bloating! Try this super easy on-the-floor yoga pose:
Lie on your back. Gently bring one bent knee up to your chest, keeping your head and your other leg relaxed on the floor. Hold your knee with your hands as close to your chest as is comfortable. Breathe deeply. Repeat with your other leg. This is called the wind relieving pose for a reason!
