Bloating and flatulence—a feeling of fullness in the stomach associated with burping or the passing of air out through the anus— may be due to constipation (see page 238) or intestinal dysbios (an overgrowth of bacteria or fungi in the intestine). The condition may be worse prior to menstruation, and is aggravated by anxiety, food intolerance, or swallowing air.

SELF-HELP Avoid eating legumes, onions, cabbage, and nuts, and use cumin, aniseed, or ginger in your cooking.
