How to make yourself burp?

Tips to Burp

Burping is one of the easiest and quickest ways to relieve bloating, particularly when it’s focused in the stomach.

Here are some helpful hints about burping:

1. Build up gas pressure in your stomach by drinking

• Quickly consume a carbonated beverage such as sparkling water or soda.

Drinking it quickly using a straw can boost the pressure even more.

• If you don’t want to drink a carbonated beverage, you can get the same effect by drinking water from the opposite side of the glass:

bend over as if you’re drinking from a water fountain, place your lips on the side of the glass opposite you, and tilt the glass so the water slowly pours into your mouth.

• Another way to drink water is to sip a whole glass while holding your breath and pinching your nose to keep any surplus air from escaping.

2. Build up gas pressure in your stomach by eating

If you eat a gas-producing food, your stomach’s gas pressure will rise even higher. The following foods may induce you to burp right away:

Stretch your life span.

• Lie down on your stomach, then curl your knees in toward your chest, stretching your arms as far as they will go, and arching your back.

4. Change the way you breathe

• Sucking in air via your mouth until you feel an air bubble in your throat, then blocking the front of your mouth with your tongue so you may slowly release the air.

Exhale via your nose with your throat closed, which puts additional pressure on your stomach to force air up through your esophagus.

5. Take antacids if necessary.

Antacids containing calcium carbonate  cause you to burp because they produce extra gas. Antacids can be found at any pharmacy.
