What Causes Bloating Might Surprise You

Someone reached out and asked us a question: What are the things that cause bloating? Bloating mainly occurs when there is an excess of intestinal gas. This feeling of bloating compares to feeling too full after eating and can be very uncomfortable. There are three primary triggers for bloating.


The first trigger is stress.  Stress can lead us to fear, which can lead us to thoughts of unworthiness. This can put us in this constant state of hypersensitivity. When our bodies are under stress, two things could happen: Sometimes, it speeds up digestion, causing diarrhea. But in other cases,  stress slows down digestion, causing bloating. 


The second one is parasites. Poor sanitation and hygiene while manipulating food and water can cause parasites to enter your body. Once you consume something contaminated, the parasite travels into your intestines. Parasites usually pass through your digestive system and are excreted without causing symptoms. But, symptoms may appear when they reproduce and grow in your gut. One of the main symptoms of parasites in your body is bloating. 


The third is mold. Same with parasites, we can find mycotoxins in harvested crops. Even though toxicity levels can be very low, how we handle food is very important. Mycotoxin exposure can also occur through contaminated air and water. Living in mold, toxins, or mycotoxin exposure will impair and inhibit your digestive system, causing symptoms like bloating, diarrhea, and leaky gut.
