Eating heavy or overly diverse food in the course of a meal is the usual cause of aerogastria. Indeed, an inappropriate diet can lead to stomach bloating which can be painful in certain cases. A frequent urge to burp is also common amongst patient suffering from aerogastria. Thus, a feeling of discomfort usually takes over people who are prone to frequent aerophagia.
The various inconveniences caused by aerogastria may, however, disappear when treated with the appropriate homoeopathic remedies. Regarding the treatment of aerogastria, homoeopathy offers the advantage of being effective and non-aggressive.
People who present symptoms of aerogastria often feel heaviness in the stomach accompanied by a sensation that their stomach is full. This discomfort is only alleviated when the patient burps. Indeed, the constant urge to belch is also one of aerogastria’s main symptoms. In certain cases, the emitted burps are characterized by their foul smell or loudness. Although in most cases the burps tend to relieve gastric bloats, they may sometimes persist. In addition, heartburn can be caused by the rise of gastric juice resulting from belching. These various symptoms due to aerogastria can also cause stress and nervousness among the affected patients, but they can be treated with homoeopathy.
Carbo vegetalis 5 CH can be used to relieve stomach bloating. The recommended dosage consists of taking 5 granules 3 times a day after the meals. When the sensation of heaviness is felt throughout the stomach region, the most suitable homoeopathic remedy is China Officinalis 5 CH. The patient should take 3 granules of China 5 CH every 15 minutes until the bloating is soothed.
When the eructations are foul-smelling, Asa foetida 5 CH is recommended. In the case the burps are loud and burn the stomach lining, Argentum nitricum 9 CH is recommended. In cases of aerogastria accompanied by heartburn and a tendency to doze off after a meal, the patient should take Nux vomica 5 CH. The recommended dosage is 3 granules to be taken after each meal. It is best to suck on the granules for a rapid action.
People suffering from pyrosis linked to aerogastria and who are of rather nervous nature must take 5 granules of Argenticum nitricum 7 CH after each meal. Asa foetida 5 CH is also recommended for patients suffering from stress-induced aerogastria. Ignatia 7 CH is also a homoeopathic remedy that is suitable for people whose aerogastria is caused by nervousness. In this case, three granules are to be taken before each meal.
Patients suffering from aerogastria are advised to consult a doctor in case the stomach bloats occur suddenly and regularly. Furthermore, it is also best to consult in case the aerogastria becomes painful or if the bloats persist after changes in the diet. Moreover, the appearance of certain symptoms such as weight loss, fever, greasy stool or anaemia should also encourage the patient suffering from aerogastria to consult without delay.
