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.
You can check your pH for acid/alkaline imbalance. A health food store can help you with supplies. Also, onsider drinking cider vinegar in water.

If you're of the female persuasion, bloating can often simply be water retention from normal monthly hormonal cycles. There are foods which have a natural diuretic effect - such as cucumber or melon.
