iVillage.com: Natural Ways to Prevent and Relieve Heartburn, Gas and Other Digestive Woes

Soak in the Tub

Taking warm, soothing daily baths can reduce bloating in as little as 72 hours, according to researchers at Logan’s University of Utah. The reason: Being immersed in warm water relaxes the entire central nervous system, and when people feel more calm, cool and collected, they swallow 67 percent less air than when they’re stressed to the max! More good news: A relaxing soak reduces your adrenal glands’ production of damaging stress hormones -- as stress hormone levels drop, your stomach’s ability to properly digest and absorb food naturally rises, says Dr. Brasco.
