All of us have belched at one point of time or the other after we’ve had a hearty meal. However, if you happen to suffer from this problem quite frequently, it can lead to social embarrassments. Let’s examine the leading causes of excessive belching and what we can do to control it.
Belching is caused by the imbalance and blockage of Vata. Typically, vata is meant to be passed downward in the body, but if there’s any blockage in its flow, it starts moving upwards, leading to burps and belching. These are some of the factors that could be causing disruption in the movement of Vata through the body:
Swallowing excess air
Food and beverages that have high gas content in them
Indigestion & obstruction in the bowel
Eating spicy, high-fat, and greasy food
Poor lifestyle practices like working late at night or skipping meals
Add the paste of crushed mint leaves to a glass of water and have it every day for two weeks.
Mix together 1tbsp of curd, 1tbsp salt, and a little bit of heeng (asafetida) powder. Add to a glass of water and drink this every day.
Mix freshly ground ginger root to one cup boiling water. Drink to ease burps.
Roast celery and cumin seeds and have ½ tbsp of this with warm water to reduce belching.
Always sit straight when you’re having your meals
Have food in small portions and avoid exercising after you’ve eaten
Avoid carbonated drinks and keep salty, spicy and sugary foods to a minimum
