How To Reduce Your Burping (belching)?

How to reduce your Burping (belching)?

What causes burping (belching)?

Mostly burping is cause by swallowing excess

air. In today’s fast life you don’t have time for

your food. So, what you do? You take your

meal very fast. Or you talk on phone while

eating. If you have habit of chewing gum , drinking

carbonated drinks, they also lead to burping.

Another reason can be your nervousness. If you are

nervous, you can swallow air even when

you are not drinking or eating anything. It is

called aerophagia.

Burping is your body’s way to get rid of this

excess air from your upper digestive tract.

How can you reduce your Burping?

  • Eat and drink slowly-

Always schedule your day so that

you can get sufficient time for

having your meal. After all,

you are working hard for your better life and

if you are not healthy, how will you enjoy your life? So,

you need to have quality time for your food. Also,

take care when you are drinking anything –

try to sit and drink slowing.

  • Avoid carbonated drinks-

There is a misconception that- if

you take a carbonated drink after your food,

especially when you eat outside food, it

will help you to digest your food properly. But,

believe me- on the contrary, it will worsen your digestion.

  • Get well fitting dentures –

This may surprise you. How your ill-fitting dentures will

lead to burping? – When you use your poorly fitting

dentures to eat or drink, you tend to swallow

excess air that will lead to belching. In addition to

burping, poorly fitting dentures have many

other drawbacks. Contact dentist ASAP to

know about the other better alternatives to

your ill-fitting dentures.

Other things which will help you to reduce your burping are-

  • Avoid chewing gum
  • Stop smoking
  • Take a walk regularly

When should you see your doctor?

If above mentioned tips don’t help, and if

your belching is also accompanied by following

symptoms, you must consult your doctor immediately:

  • Diarrhoea or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Blood in your stool
  • Lose weight without trying for it
  • Heartburn

Have good air in your lungs, not in your stomach… 

May you get rid of your annoying belching!

That’s all for today.

See you next Tuesday with another Tuesday Tip.

Till then….

Take care….
