How To Get Rid Of Stomach Bloating And Gas | Self Healing Techniques Series









   

For some of us it’s not unusual to feel discomfort from stomach bloating and formation of intestinal gas after having a meal. Most of the time the bloating goes away after a few hours and may reoccur after the next meal.

If the bloating does not go away and persists for days you may want to visit your doctor. In this article we are going to deal only with short-term stomach bloating, which related directly to intake of foods.

Reasons for Stomach Bloating:

  • Dairy products can increase gas formation. Traditional Chinese Medicine explains this as a weakness of a spleen which is the case with most adults. The modern medicine explains it as decrease in presence of enzymes necessary for processing lactose (dairy sugar) contained in dairy products.
  • Badly digested food can promote increased formation of gas as well. Good examples of such foods are cabbage, beans, yeast, nuts, potatoes, sunflower seeds, fruit, sweets, soda water and certainly any fatty products.
  • Eating too fast causes ingestion of air that also contributes to stomach bloating

Treatment

In this article I’m going to teach you how you can help yourself reduce stomach bloating and eliminate intestinal gas, using techniques from Su Jok.

As usual with Su Jok, the first thing you are going to do is to identify areas on your hand that correspond to stomach, duodenum and gall bladder. See figure 1 for details:

swelling-of-stomach-1

Once you found the areas you need to stimulate those areas. You can use a little stick with a not too sharp edge (e.g., a toothpick with a broken sharp edge, ball pen without ink, etc.)

Now find most painful point on these areas. Press these points with moderate effort and begin a slow rotation of the stick in two directions.

Carry out this massage for several minutes (figure 2).

swelling-of-stomach-2

If you didn’t find painful points simply massage whole areas. You can also use your fingers to do the massage.
Massage these areas with constant moderate effort while slightly rotating a finger, without moving it. While the picture shows only one finger, you should repeat the same massage on all fingers but your thumb.

Next apply fennel seeds to the area corresponding to stomach. Replace these seeds every 10-12 hours. See also the technique explained in “How To Get Rid Of Neck Pain“.

If the discomfort persists you are next going to massage two very important points. Here is how to find those points:

Look at figures 3 and 4. Put your hand according to figure 3. The middle finger will specify to you the location of the first point. It is at the distance of one finger width from the anterior crest of the tibia.

swelling-of-stomach-3

swelling-of-stomach-4

Now look at figures 5 and 6. Put four fingers according to figure 5 and you will find the place of the second point.
It is on the medial part of the tibia.

swelling-of-stomach-5

swelling-of-stomach-6

Massage these points on both legs.

These points should not be stimulated if you are pregnant.

After that heat up these points using Moxa.

To conclude, here is some advice to avoid having stomach bloating in first place.

  • Walk after meals
  • Do not hurry to eat your meals; instead carefully chew your food.
  • Limit the use of milk. Drink lactose-free milk and yogurts instead.
  • Avoid the use of excessively hot or cold food.
  • Reduce consumption of stimulating substances. Coffee, tea and chocolate can lead to stomach bloating.

    Miracle cure, instant relief from arrhythmia, gastroenteritis, burping, heart beat skipping, heart palpitation, chest heaviness, etc.

    “Miracle Cure”.

    I have had two heart attacks when I was 48, and now I am 58.

    I have been having palpitations, nausea, head spinning, gastric troubles, chest discomforts, heart beat skippings and so many other damn problems for the last ten years that its hard to tell.

    And for the last five months or so I would have non-stop burping bouts, almost every day, lasting at times for couple of hours.

    I would think of ending my life but then didn’t.

    Anyhow, only five days ago, I was about to sleep at night and unknowingly I had put my left forearm on my bloated belly, about an inch or two under the rib cage. The forearm reaching from the left of my belly upto an inch or two short of belly button. I felt instant relief. All heaviness in the chest, nauseatic feelings, burping and the skipping of heart beats just stopped. I stayed that way a few minutes and kept feeling the serenity after years. I lifted my forearm and the bad feelings started coming back, along with a couple of burps. I instantly put my forearm back and felt instant relief again.

    Anyway, I couldn’t sleep with the forearm in that position for the whole night, so I thought of tying something heavy enough around my belly. So I got up and folded a polo shirt about eight inches in length, four inches in width and two and a half inches in thickness, and put it on my belly at the position of the forearm and then tied it with a belt hard enough to feel the same kind of pressure on my belly as my forearm had put on it.

    I slept the whole night like a baby after years. It was some Miracle for me.

    I kept the polo shirt and the belt tied over my belly almost twenty four hours,except when taking a bath, during the last five days. And am feeling great, never so in the last many years.

    Hope it helps other people also. If it helps you, please spread the ‘Miracle Cure’.
