Bloating is one of the most common problems that people complain about today. The good news is that once you have determined what is causing your stomach to bloat, that it is almost always treatable. Bloating is uncomfortable, especially for women, because it affects their confidence and how they feel about their bodies.

Here are some of the most common things that cause bloating:

  • Intestinal yeast overgrowth
  • Food intolerances
  • Gluten sensitivity or celiac disease
  • Insulin resistance
  • Poor food combining
  • Irregular meal-times
  • Deficiency of digestive enzymes (including lactose intolerance)
  • Other causes of dysbiosis – small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or parasites

Some of this causes may be tested,  but the others are treated based on the symptoms and history.

  1. Intestinal yeast overgrowth

Antibiotics are the main reason that causes intestinal yeast overgrowth. Using antibiotics for a long period of time may alter your digestive flora, allowing yeast to attack your body.

Too much yeast in the body makes you bloated and gassy. This is because it ferment foods, causing gassiness. Some other symptoms that people also experience are: very high sugar or carb cravings, tendency for binge eating, brain fog, fatigue, vaginal yeast infections, and possibly fungal skin infections.

The good news is that you can treat this type of bloating by rebalancing your intestinal flora with a yeast cleanse: eating a no-sugar diet, taking supplements to kill yeast, and replenishing your intestinal flora with probiotics.

  1. Food intolerance

The difference between food intolerance and food allergies is that food intolerance is postponed reaction to food, unlike food allergies that causes immediate itching, swelling or anaphylaxis. Food intolerances lead to immune stress and inflammation, and irritates the intestinal tract causing bloating. The most common food that can cause intolerance are dairy, eggs, certain fruits (banana, citrus, pineapple especially), sometimes nuts (almonds and peanuts are most common), wheat, gluten, corn or others.

Food intolerances can be easily tested with a blood test. Food intolerance is more common for people with a history of allergies, eczema, asthma or a family history of autoimmune disease, but can also be related to many other skin conditions, digestive disturbances, and low energy. It takes from 4 to 6 weeks for the bloating to stop after eliminating the aggravating foods.

  1. Gluten sensitivity or celiac disease

Gluten intolerance and celiac disease, a more serious form of gluten-intolerance, are on the rise, mainly because of the great changes in wheat over the past 50 years.Another cause for this condition is the high consumption of grain products. A lot of people with a gluten sensitivity will complain of bloating, with or without gassiness, constipation or diarrhea.

Gluten intolerance and celiac can be tested. However,  many people who test negative, still feel much better off gluten. There are various markers for gluten intolerance, such as low vitamin B12 levels without a vegan or vegetarian diet.

In a case you think that gluten may be a problem for you, firstly you need to do appropriate blood tests to confirm, or to start a 5 week strict gluten-free trial. Some of the best alternatives to gluten are millet, rice, sweet potato, quinoa, and squash.

  1. Insulin resistance

Insulin is the hormone that is released from the pancreas in response to glucose (sugar) in the blood. The levels of the insulin increase after eating a meal. In a healthy person when insulin is produced it activates the body’s cells to use the sugar and fats from the bloodstream. Insulin resistance happens when the cells do not react tothe insulin signal.

Common symptoms of insulin resistance are: weight gain (often rapidly in a period of 2-3 years); intense cravings for carbohydrates and sweets; increased appetite; and feeling tired and bloated after eating.

The good thing is that insulin resistance is treatable and reversible with diet changes and exercise. The most important thing is to lower your intake of sugar and carbohydrate foods, and consume more vegetables, proteins, fiber and healthy fats; and also to start exercising regularly.
