We all struggle with bloating, at some point in our lives. Some of us struggle with it daily. This is why it’s good to start looking at ways to reduce your bloating.
I personally struggle with bloating a lot. I visited multiple doctors, and nobody could give me an answer to why.
They just labeled it as IBS, which is a diagnosis often given to people with digestive problems, doctors can’t diagnose.
So, I went on a journey to find out what works for me, and also research, and work on natural remedies.
So, today, I have my own, personally developed bloat detox drink, that made a huge difference in my life.
