Health.com: How To Get Rid of Annoying Body Problems

Bloating

What causes it: This uncomfortable feeling of fullness in your tummy occurs when excess gas gets trapped in your stomach and intestines. Bloating can be triggered by a variety of factors, ranging from eating too much at one sitting to medical conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome.

What to do: "Exercise might be the last thing on your mind when your stomach hurts, but a brisk 10- or 15-minute walk can do wonders," Dr. Raj says. "If you don't exercise, your intestines become sluggish, which can lead to cramping and constipation."

Dr. Raj also suggests applying gentle pressure in a circular motion to a spot four finger-widths above your navel, for five minutes. This acupressure technique can ease stress and calm belly woes.
