Excessive Belching

Posted by

I am currently under treatment for candida with a nutritionist. I've seen all of my symptoms improve except for the excessive burping that I'm experiencing. I burp between 60-100 times a day, especially after drinking water, and after meals. There is no acid reflux, whatsoever. My nutritionist said I may have a hiatal hernia. Every post about hiatal hernias involve acid reflux, which I do not have. I'm sure the candida is causing the burping, but for some reason it's not improving? I'm quite certain that I'm not an aerophage. Could I have a hiatal hernia?. If I do, what do you suggest I do for it?

Hi, Mobashir.

Your belching is being caused by LGS (the cause of your C-RS). Unless you deal with the LGS, your C-RS will come back anyhow. The nervous habit you have of "air swallowing" doesn't help either. The air swallowing is also caused by the same thing that is behind your LGS.

My nutritionist has a system where he treats candida, parasites, then leaky gut in that order. Does that mean I won't have an improvement until the leaky gut is addressed? I also stated that I'm certain that I'm NOT an aerophage. I really don't believe I'm swallowing air, because I'm very careful when I drink water. As I understand it, LGS is microscopic tears in the intestinal lining which allows undigested food particles to pass through causing problems in the joints, etc. I don't see how that could cause belching, especially after drinking water. It seems that you believe LGS causes candida, not the other way around as I understand it. I would really appreciate it if you could provide an explanation.



The explanations are right here on this website!

LGS and Candida are discussed, defined, and explained at length in the Glossary, Archives, and Articles on Health right here on Dr. Stoll's site. Please read as much as you can about these conditions and then if you still have questions, post again. This will save Dr. Stoll or someone else a whole lot of re-typing!

Hope this helps.

FYI you can get rid of candida without getting rid of LGS. I did it, but unless you get rid of the LGS, you will continue to get re-infected with the candida. SO, that's why Dr. Stoll says you have to deal with the LGS. Also, LGS is caused by Bracing - you can look that up and the explanation for it in the glossary, too!

Good luck and happy reading.

Hi, Mobashir.

Your nutritionist will eventually learn that she has it backwards. She may get quicker results the way she is doing it but will rarely get permanent ones.

There has never been an "air swallower" who was aware of the habit! We ALL swallow every few moments. The upper respiratory tract produces an average of 1 1/2 quarts of mucus every 24 hours. We normally drink our snot and that is healthy! This is a major first line of defense against all the stuff in the environment (see the archives and home page about "colds"). It doesn't take much of an alteration of that process to be an air swallower. Stress directly produces that alteration.

LGS is NOT "microscopic tears". It is a general thinning of the mucosa and a universal reduction in the function of what lining is left. It is the alteration of function that contributes to gas formation and THAT is nearly all in the lower intestine. SO, at least 90% of the belching HAS TO be from air swallowing.

In the end, the same things that would deal with the LGS would also decrease the air swallowing.

Your understanding of the processes is the most critical factor here and you are doing well with that.

Walt

I donít want to waste your time with questions and debates, but I am very desperate to rid myself of this candida problem. As a mechanical engineer I have to understand how everything works, including the body. This might be little long, but Iím hoping one more response will put this to rest.

I totally disagree with your belief that LGS causes candida. I only experienced the beginning of my problems after taking six courses of antibiotics for chronic tonsillitis in one year. I believe is the stress I experienced in college depressed my immune system and led to the tonsillitis. I was taking 24 credits per semester, and sleeping only 2 to 3 hours a night. My situation worsened by taking more antibiotics for the resulting sinus infections that I had. Penicllin, Biaxin, Ceftin, Zithromax, you name it, I probably took it.

What caused my candida was the abuse of antibiotics. The ecology of the intestinal flora was altered due to the antibiotics, which allowed the candida to grow, mutate, and then cause LGS.

LGS is caused by the candida changing into its fungal form, growing roots (rhizoids) into oneís intestines, and penetrating the intestinal lining. This causes the microscopic tears, which allow undigested proteins to pass into the blood, causing joint problems, autoimmune reactions, etc. I donít see how you can address the LGS first. If you take supplements to repair the intestinal lining, they wonít work unless they kill the candida at its roots. Supplements which coat the intestinal lining such as garlic oil and castor oil do this. Once the candida is killed, parasites are eliminated, and the intestinal flora is restored, one can then repair the damage to the intestines.

Now I know you disagree with this, but I am getting tremendous results with my current nutritionist, except for the belching.

1) Are you saying that I will not get permanent results if the candida and parasites are addressed before the leaky gut? I think that as long as the leaky gut is addressed at some point, and the immune function to the bowels is restored, I should not get a relapse.

2) If the belching that Iím experiencing is caused by gas in the lower intestinal tract, why do I immediately burp after drinking water. The water wonít travel the 20 or 25 feet into my lower intestine produce gas, and then come up all in a matter of 10 seconds, or will it?

3) Are you also saying that I should be swallowing snot, but stress has altered that process and now Iím swallowing air?

4) I know that L-Glutamine repairs intestinal damage, but what other supplements help as well, besides doing SR?

5) If I repair the leaky gut, while Iím killing the candida, can I expect the belching to go away, or at least be reduced?

I am desperate to get rid of this burping. I am dying to start dating again, but this excessive belching is preventing me from doing so. I need to get my life back, which this stupid disease has taken away. Please help!

I also have many other points that I would like to debate, however I will read your book first.

Thank you for your time.
