How To Stop Burping: I Burp A Lot. I Tried Many Home Remedies. We Can't Figure Out What Is Causing Me To Burp. Please Suggest Me Some Natural Remedies.

There could be a lot of reasons why someone would burp a lot. The main cause of burping is excessive breathing of air through the mouth or production of excessive gases in the digestive system. Here is what you can do to prevent excessive burping.

  • Stay focused on your diet. Increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables. These have a lot of nutrients as well as enzymes that can aid digestion. Fruits and vegetables also contain soluble fiber that can help move food along the alimentary canal, thus preventing excessive buildup of gas in the stomach.
  • Change the way you cook your food. Avoid frying your foods, rather you could steam or boil your food. Always cook your food at temperatures lower than 300. This will help maintain the quality of the dietary fiber in your food and retain their nutrients as well.
  • Avoid drinking water during your meals as this can dilute your stomach acids and prevent the food from getting digested in the proper manner. It is also wise to avoid drinking very cold water during or soon after your meals.
  • Avoid foods that create gas in your stomach. These include beans and other cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts. Also avoid foods such as cabbage, bell peppers, cucumbers, and caffeine.
  • Consume a cup of herbal tea every day. This not only reduces water retention in your body, it also prevents distention and production of too much gas. Peppermint tea usually helps curb the growth of flatulence causing bacteria in your stomach.
  • Avoid spicy foods as these increase acid production in the stomach and cause digestion related problems.
  • If you smoke, stop it immediately. Smoking causes you to inadvertently inhale a lot of air through your mouth. You can also avoid drinking through a straw as that too can cause you to consume a lot of air through your mouth.
  • Avoid consuming carbonated drinks.
