Our expert says:
Hot water is a very good cleanser of the colon. A maximum of 3 mugs of hot water a day can be consumed to have this effect. Hot water sipped after a meal can help you digest your food better. Yes, if it is due to the colon not emptying properly, it can help, but to stop your tummy from bloating ever is unlikely. Fermentation of food causes bloatedness. We need to digest and not ferment our food. Some foods are more difficult to digest and should be avoided if possible. They are sugar and anything containing sugar, white flour products, coffee, tea, alcohol.... Natural foods that can cause bloatedness are dried beans and pulses not cooked correctly, certain veggies such as cabbage, onions, cauliflower...Pitted fruits or any fruit and veg that is half-ripe. Even mixing food groups can cause bloatedness. It can also be due to a lack of enzymes and flora or a pancreas that is battling. Try and assess the cause and treat it from that level. If you are unsure, seek the advice of a naturopath or nutritionist.
