Bloating & Gas? Yoga and Meditation are natural remedies

Did you know meditation and yoga are natural remedies for bloating and gas.(1)

Research shows a consistent 15 minutes a day practice is all that is needed.(1)

It is known that meditation is the intentional practice of connection of mind and body. Our mind and body are directly connected to our vagus nerve.

Stress can contribute to causing spasms in the colon and abdominal discomfort, according to a review published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Reviewers noted that progressive muscle relaxation, meditation, yoga, counseling, or changes to daily stressful situations can help reduce stress and have a positive effect on digestive health.(2)

More studies are beginning to explore the role of stress and psychological factors and their impact on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In a study published in July 2020 in Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, researchers found that an increase in stress was associated with people with IBS when compared with the study’s control group.(2)

2022 Medical News articles stated ” Certain yoga poses can position the muscles in the abdomen in a way that encourages the release of excess gas from the GI tract. This can reduce bloating.(3)

Child’s Pose, Happy Baby Pose, and squats can all help people to relieve a buildup of gas quickly. Learn more about yoga poses for flatulence.”(3)
