Have you ever slipped on your jeans in the morning, only to realize there's no chance they're going to button? Of course you have — we've all been there. Just like there was that time last week when, in the middle of the day, your belly felt distended and you couldn't stop passing gas. There's a name for those experiences: bloating. And it's one of the great joys of being human. EmpressBody knows that bloating can have lots of effects on you, from making you feel irritable to affecting your self esteem. We’ve put together a run-down of what can cause the dreaded bloating and even a selection of EmpressBody products to help!
Here’s what can cause bloating:
1. You’re skipping meals.
If you're the kind of person who never eats breakfast and lives on coffee until it's time for lunch, that habit could be the reason for ongoing bloat. Your stomach is searching for something to digest because you should actually be eating a meal. But because you're not, your body instead creates gas that leads to bloat. And if you're skipping a morning meal only to then gorge on lunch — AKA eat more than your stomach can actually handle — that can cause a lot of bloating too.
2. You're sitting too much.
Sit all morning, rush to lunch, eat at your desk, barely move until it’s time to clock out. Sound familiar? This pattern of staying sedentary through most of the work day can make it hard for food to move through your digestive tract, which can lead to feeling bloated, go take a walk after lunch to help your gut digest so you don't feel so uncomfortable.
Speaking of going for a walk, being active can be extremely helpful if your bloat seems to be related to constipation. Exercise helps speed up your bowel transit and helps you to go to the bathroom more frequently. So even if you’re not interested in becoming a fitness beast, a routine that gets your blood flowing may be what you need to help get your bowels in shape.
You may have noticed lots of ‘pregnancy’ speculation in the media, especially targeted at African American celebrities. This is often actually caused by fibroids. For the most part, fibroids just make you look or feel bloated, but they can even grow to a size where they can cause difficulty breathing or kidney failure.

The EmpressBody Colon Detox Tea
Our Hemp Colon Detox Tea, cleanses organs while also helping to clear toxins caused by processed foods, harsh chemicals and other nasties which can build up in the colon. This herbal blend allows a gentle relief for occasional constipation. Our herbal formula begins with organic Hemp Seed, which has been used for centuries as a natural relief for occasional constipation. To help balance the effects of hemp, we add lily, which can help to relieve uneasiness of the mind and body for inner tranquility.
And for bloating caused by Fibroids, EmpressBody recommends:
Because every woman is so beautifully unique we have to point out that relieving the symptoms of fibroids will differ from woman to woman. But the EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle is made up of different elements that individually have soothing properties and as a combined treatment work together to relieve symptoms of fibroids.
The EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle contains:
18 Detox Pearls (this is the minimum amount we recommend although we advise 36 Detox Pearls for multiple fibroids that are medium-large in size).
2 x Yoni Steam
With the EmpressBody Fibroids Fighter Bundle we recommend that women do the full 18 EmpressBody Detox Pearls, this means inserting 6 pearls over a course of 24 days, each pearl you will use for 3 days not 2 to relieve the symptoms of fibroids and expel toxins. Women may experience cramping due to the fibroid tissue being broken down, but warm baths will help relieve the pain. Drink plenty of water and Moringa to help purify and encourage your body to function at its full potential and aid in preventing fibroid flare ups and achieve full yoni wellness.
