Bloating is a subjective feeling of fullness in your abdomen not necessarily related to the actual expansion of your waistline or the amount of gas produced. It usually indicates poor digestive function and a shortage of friendly bacteria in your bowels. Sometimes people suffer from sensitivities to common foods such as wheat, yeast or cow’s milk, and you can try removing such products from your diet for a while. Modern bread seems to cause bloating in a lot of people: try yeast-free breads, based on sourdough. Some foods, such as cabbage, beans and lentils, are hard to digest for almost everybody – it is a good idea to add caraway seeds to these while cooking to aid the digestion. If you suffer from IBS, bloating will be one of the symptoms, and you will find that the herbs recommended below offer relief. However, as IBS is a complex condition you will get much better overall results from treatment designed specifically for your particular symptoms.

Caraway seeds are not really seeds at all, but the dried fruits of a plant that is found in north Africa, Europe and Asia. Caraway seeds have a flavor that is similar to that of anise and are perhaps most familiar as the ingredient that gives rye bread its distinctive taste.
