If I'm bloated, is it the stomach or the intestines? by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
Abdominal area. From Wiki: Common causes of abdominal bloating are:
Lactose intolerance, fructose intolerance and other food intolerances
Aerophagia (air swallowing, a nervous habit)
Irritable bowel syndrome
Partial bowel obstruction
Gastric dumping syndrome or rapid gastric emptying
Polycystic ovary syndrome and ovarian cysts
Alvarez' syndrome, bloating of unknown or psychogenic origin without excess of gas in the digestive tract
Massive infestation with intestinal parasites (e.g., Ascaris lumbricoides)
Certain Medications, such as phentermine
Occurs in some due to salivary hypersecretion and dehydration.
Google Dr Mercola on digestive disorders. I would take digestize enzymes in the morning and acidophilus in the evening and drink liquids 30min before and after the meal. Massage tummy with peppermit oil.
