Bloating originating in the stomach indicates a lack of stomach acid.and/or yeast growing in the stomach. This will generally result in acid reflux as well. If the bloating originates in the intestines then this indicates Candida overgrowth in the intestines.
How would a person determine if the bloating/gas is from the stomach or the small intestines? I am consistantly burping and also have the sense that the food is just sitting there. I am taking digestive bitters with meals, taking probiotics, eating healthy, balanced and varied meals as much as possible, including coconut oil daily! I've had to start eating smaller meals more often, esp. proteins. Sometimes I'll take hot water and ACV to drink after a meal to help digest the food too.
So excessive burping [I know some is swallowed air] would mean fermentation of stomach food not being digested in a timely matter, right? Candida overgrowth in the intestines ... low/no sugar/starch diet, anti fungals, etc.? My goodness, sometimes I wonder if I'll EVER be healed and well!!!!
