Brief Answer:
Intestinal flora depletion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
firstly thanks for choosing HCM.
Mst likely you are hiving gastroentritis due to depletion of intestinal flora.Our gastro intestinal system has its own enviroment termed as g.i flora.It contains a number of microorganiam which help in digesting the food properly.Any disruption in this flora can lead to problem with digestion like loose stools,constipation,bloating and belching etc.
I would suggest you take a good probiotic daily for a few days.Get a stool routine and microscopy test done to rule out any infection in stool.
Apart from this follow some gemerel advice-
-Take large amount of fibre in your diet 30-40 gram per day.
-Include vegetables and fruits like oranges and peer in your diet.
- Eat lot of vegetable salad daily.
-Avoid fast food for few days.
-Take a lot of yoghurt in diet.

You will be fine soon.
Thanks
