For years I was always feeling bloated. And, not just feeling bloated, but even just drinking water would make my stomach enlarge. Very frustrating and uncomfortable. For years, decades, I’ve had hypothyroidism too.
What Causes Stomach Bloating
In people with no thyroid condition, it can be from water weight, allergies, salt, additives, toxins and gluten intolerance to name a few.
If you have a thyroid condition, specifically hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, your thyroid fails to release an adequate amount of hormones (its otherwise healthy job.) As a result, your metabolism slows down.
Symptoms include sudden weight gain made up of both water retention and fat.
1. Thyroid Hormone Replacement to help regulate and reset matabolism. Synthroid, Armour, etc.
2. A clean diet (the Thyroid Reset Diet is in my Manual and Home Study Course)
3. Daily exercise/movement
What If I’m Still Bloating?
What if you’re doing all these things correctly and you’re still bloating? You will want to consider two gut or GI tract bacterias (though you will be able to define your specific issue by a lab or other test):
1. Candidiasis, or candida/yeast overgrowth.
2. Klebsiella oxytoca bacteria. I get this one periodically. My pracitioner gives me a 30 day remedy that has worked every time. I found out that this was the culprit from a lab/stool test.

The supplement I take for klebsiella oxytoca bacteria is Myco Zyme. Without a lab test you won’t know which you have, or if it’s another reason completely. My practitioner uses kinesiology to muscle test me for it since I’m aware of my symptoms.
