Some tips you can follow in home
1. Avoiding constipation: a low fiber and fluid intake and little physical activity can lead to constipation, which in turn can cause swelling. To avoid this, we recommend a diet rich in fiber (25g per day for women and 38g for men) that includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, and physical activity of at least 30 minutes five times a week .
Increasing fiber in the diet should be gradual, accompanied by plenty of fluids for the body to tolerate it better.
2. Discard cereal allergies or lactose intolerance: allergies and food intolerances can cause gas and bloating, but the source must be confirmed by a doctor. Many people self-diagnosed and unnecessarily removed from their diet whole grains and dairy products are very healthy. If you suspect that you have an allergy or intolerance, it is best to see a doctor to make us some evidence. Sometimes simply reduce the amount of food consumed in question, or take it in combination with other foods.
3. Do not eat too fast: eating fast and not chewing food properly can do to swallow air, and this, in turn, causes swelling, so you should relax and enjoy the food, which should last at least 30 minutes. It should be borne in mind that digestion begins in the mouth, so that it can reduce swelling more simply chewing food.
4. No abuse of carbonated drinks: the bubbles of gas or carbonated beverages (including light) can cause the gas to get trapped in our belly. Instead, drink water with some lemon or lime for flavor, or simply reduce the number of soft drinks we consume daily. Infusions of pepper may help reduce swelling.
