Why am I so bloated all the time?


One of the most common things women come to see me for is bloating.


Bloating is the feeling of a swollen belly or abdomen, usually after eating. Some women explain that they ‘feel like they are 6 months pregnant!’


In this blog I discuss the many causes of bloating including:

  • Food intolerances
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or SIBO
  • Constipation
  • Overeating at the previous meal
  • Chronic conditions that affect the gut, including Crohn’s and Coeliac Disease
  • Hormonal conditions that can indirectly affect the gut, including PMS, PCOS and Endometriosis

I also discuss in detail the 5 things to do today to Ease the Bloat – Click here to read more.
