If you have noticed your gut has swelled up over the years, you may want to learn how to get rid of gas and bloating problems the easy and affordable way.

You may nave been thinking, “why do I have gas and bloating all the time?”

In most cases, gas and bloating are the symptoms of a poor diet. There are more serious conditions like Cron’s disease that your doctor may diagnosis.

But for many people, gas and bloating are a clear sign of being directly related to several problem foods that kill off bacteria in the gut. When bad bacteria takes up residence in the stomach (intestinal tract) the results are a craving for junk foods that feed bad bacteria, leading to worsening health in many different forms.

And while yogurt makers claim they have the answer… allow me to give you a more detailed scenario of most yogurts.

While it is true that acidophiles in yogurt is beneficial to your digestion, the process used to make yogurt is not. Dairy products go through a process called pasteurization, which is a method of killing off bad bacteria with very high heat. The process itself not only kills the bad bacteria, but also the good.

Another method used to pasteurize dairy is using a type of food grade peroxide as a bleaching agent. Again, both good and bad bacteria are killed in the process.

One of the main culprits that kills off stomach and intestinal bacteria (the beneficial kind) is sugar and artificial sweeteners… even corn syrup. So when fruit is added to yogurt, so is a contradiction to what you are trying to achieve… more good bacteria than bad. The sugar feeds the bad bacteria and helps the bad bacteria overpower your good bacteria.

Gas and bloating are the symptoms, the end result of a over throw of rule in your gut. It’s like a country with a reasonable ruler (good bacteria) that has been taken over by a dictator (bad bacteria).

Lots of people who experience gas and bloating and diarrhea may visit their doctor and be given either a anti-diarrhea medication or be given an antibiotic. In the case of an antibiotic, again, the drug kills not only the good bacteria, but also all of the good. Taking echinacea leaves or root for a while will also kill off good bacteria and should be replaced after the herb is discontinued to return the stomach bacteria to normal.

If your doctor gives you gas and bloating antibiotics, keep in mind, without a post supplementation of good bacteria your gas and bloating problem will not improve because it hasn’t addressed the main problem, a lack of good bacteria to fight off the bad.

Is gas and bloating bad?

Gas and bloating left go can lead to much more serious conditions that require constant use of prescription drugs. And most people know that prescription drugs rarely ever cure, but cover-up the problem until it gets much worst and requires stronger strength drug.

What about gas and bloating after drinking alcohol?

Alcohol kills off good bacteria also. The proof is evident when you crave junk food during and after drinking alcohol. After the alcohol kills off the good bacteria leaving only the bad bacteria, the bad bacteria wants to be fed… here enters junk food!

If you experience gas and bloating after every meal it may be a good idea to start looking at your options before it becomes too late to reverse.

If you get yeast infections, acne, skin rashes, gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and/or have a hard time losing weight around the stomach… it’s time to educate yourself.
