Can you isolate what causes the bloating? Possibilities include lactose or gluten intolerance, excessive sugar and other refined carbs, yeast, incomplete digestion, some medications... -- You can eliminate suspected foods, get tested for medical conditions, check with your doctor it you are on medications.
