Question: I m diabetic n 11 week pregnant... Plz suggest natural remedy for gas problem
Answer: Hello dear,
There are following things to remember if you are suffering from bloating or gas:
Drink plenty of water - Sip on fluids throughout the day. Avoid large amounts of fluids at one time. Try cool, clear fruit juices, such as apple or grape juice.
Fit in fiber - Keep a healthy level of fiber in your diet – think leafy greens, legumes, whole grains (like whole wheat bread or pasta), and fruits. It's another way to curb pregnancy constipation. On the flip side, though: Too much fiber can be a gas accident waiting to happen. If you're fitting fiber in for the first time in your life, introduce it slowly and gently.
Opt for smaller meals. - Eat small meals or snacks every two to three hours rather than three large meals. Eat slowly and chew your food completely. Avoid spicy, fried, or greasy foods. Eat dry foods like cereal, toast or poha before getting out of bed.
Slow down. - Take a hint from your pregnant digestive tract, and slow it down (see, your mom was right all along). If you typically scarf down your lunch in five minutes flat, you're probably swallowing a lot of air along with that food. The air will end up settling into your stomach in the form of painful gas bubbles (no pain to your baby, just you) and bloating. So, no matter how busy your days are, do your best to eat at a leisurely pace while you're pregnant.
Cut back on the beans. - Their (well-deserved) reputation precedes their entrance … and exit. You don't have to give them up entirely, but try not to overdo them, and stick to your pregnancy diet. Other foods in the gas club include cabbage, onions, fried foods, sugary foods and rich, buttery sauces. Avoid those that you're probably better off steering clear of anyway (like the onion rings that combine two club members in one potent dish), and moderate your intake of the others.
Question: Hello, i am 10 weeks pregnant. I m facing constipation, bloating n gas. Pls suggest ..
Answer: Eat a high-fibre diet that contains lots of wholegrain cereals, wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables. This will provide you with roughage to aid your digestion. You should also drink at least 1.5 litres (2.6 pints) of water every day.
Don’t rely on taking bran to avoid constipation, unless you also drink a lot more fluids. Without extra water, bran will bulk up your poo, making it hard and less able to pass along your intestines. Large amounts of bran may also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients from your food.
Staying active and exercising will help to prevent constipation. Walking, swimming or aquanatal classes, gentle cycling on an exercise bike, or pregnancy exercise classes can all help.
Practising yoga positions can keep constipation at bay, and Pilates is particularly helpful. These exercises tone your inner tummy muscles, which help to keep your bowels moving.
Cut out drinks that make you wee more often, such astea, coffee, and cola. These diuretics may dehydrate you and make your constipation worse.
