Hello @notmoff. I am sure the bloat you are experiencing has to be both uncomfortable as well as frustrating given your posture. As a way to relieve symptoms, I am wondering if you've read much on gut health and what you might be able to include in your daily regimen that could be helpful and, at least, reducing symptoms a bit?

Thanks for the response Amanda.
I believe most of my bloat is due to the obstipation and twisting of my body - mostly beyond my control. But you asked about gut health.
I question my choice to eat a plant based diet because the sources of of protein tend to be beans that are gassy.
I am eating down the bok choy, kale, kohlrabi, cabbage and other crucifers in my refrigerator that add to the gas. They will be partially replaced with spinach, beets & their greens, chard, carrots, peas, corn, celery , artichokes and other somewhat less nutritious vegetables.
I will chew my food more thoroughly before swallowing.
I will continue to get my carbs from quinoa, millet, red and sweet potatoes, nuts & seeds (protein) . I plan to add fish for protein. I avoid antibiotics and prepared foods. The pain is greater if I eat as much food as I did my first 79 years, so I will "graze".
I have been deleting and unsubscribing from doom and gloom emails.
I am open to suggestions.
