Feel Better After Overeating

  • Sharebar

Who among us has not had an hard experience with overeating? Stomach aches, and other digestion problems, are something we all want to avoid. But, if we cannot prevent such problems, we will welcome anything that offers fast relief!

Carbonated water eases the symptoms of some forms of stomach aches, as well as easing constipation. I had to learn this the hard way, which, unfortunately, is usually how my lessons are learned.

The main symptom of stomach problems that I have is feeling bloated or fullness in the upper abdominal region after overeating and overeating is something I do a lot. Suffering was my normal experience; then I started working for a man who would always take water and baking soda whenever he had these symptoms. One day, I was really miserable, so I tried his remedy; after a short while, I felt markedly better.



As a result, I did some studying to learn why this works so well. This was long before antacid medications were sold over the counter (OTC) and also long before people could run to the doctor with every ache, pain or stomach ailment. Basically adding baking soda with water produces carbon dioxide gas with bubbles and somehow the bubbles and the ingredients form a solution that aids the movement of the digestive tract, relieving some of the unpleasantness from overeating – that bloated feeling goes away.

This adding baking soda and water actually forms carbonated water which has been used for years to treat digestive complaints, yet no research exists if it is effective or how it works. I did find some information about studies showing that both the bubbles of carbon dioxide and the presence of high minerals can promote the digestive process. This, essentially , is what I was making with water and baking soda. I discovered no information on whether the mineral-rich carbonated water or the bubbles are more effective.

I found some suggestions for stopping these problems before they develop, such as avoiding foods that cause your stomach problems, eating smaller meals, reduce eating a lot of fat, and if you smoke, stopping as soon as possible. Also everyone should drink a healthy amount of fluids to maintain movement of your GI tract and reduce the chance of constipation.

I read about some devices to make homemade carbonated water, which you can use for drinking. Add a number of flavors to carbonated water to create options to regular soda pop; this is especially great if you want to avoid the calories. If you make this homemade drink with water rich in minerals, you have made a very healthy and low calorie drink called sparkling water which is good for your whole family. A large assortment of calorie free flavors to flavor sparkling water to great taste is sold at allfreight.com.

My personal experience proves this: if you have overeaten but feel absolutely miserable and must work for the rest of the day, carbonated water does help.

    When we say carbonated water, can a softdrink be a good replacement just incase we can’t find any homemade carbonated water? I think that this information is very useful since there are times that I suffer some stomach ache due to over eating.

I think that this information is very useful specially to me, since there are times that I suffer some stomach ache due to over eating and I usually go reach a can of sprite to feel better.
