When there is an excess of qi in the stomach, it can lead to increased belching and flatulence—both of which can be rather embarrassing, but could the cause be linked to stress rather than just digestive issues?
Absolutely. From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, excessive belching is associated with liver stagnation and disrupted the flow of the qi. Intense stress can lead to the invasion of liver qi into the stomach, resulting in symptoms like bloating, belching, hiccups, and even stomach pain.
Managing stress effectively and soothing the qi in the liver can offer relief from stomach bloating. Incorporating foods like Buddha’s hand citron, hairy fig root, lotus seeds, lily bulbs, and dried citrus peel into our diet can help balance liver qi and alleviate these symptoms.
Meanwhile, reduce the consumption of gas-inducing foods such as dairy and beans, as well as raw, greasy, and hard-to-digest foods. Applying pressure to the Inner Pass (Nei Guan) point and Central Venter (Zhong Wan) point can also be beneficial. Use the thumb to gently press each acupoint for about 30 seconds alternately to help alleviate stomach discomfort.
