You know to avoid things like soda, sodium and broccoli if you don’t want to bloat.
But what if you’re already bloated? What then? Do this: Apply heat. Either from the inside, by sipping hot tea – or the outside, with a hot-water bottle or heating pad. The heat will relax your colon and help the gas work its way through your system. Or get some exercise. That can stimulate your GI tract and move the gas along. But maybe exercise solo – instead of at the gym.
