Burping three – four times after eating is normal. This is usually caused by the air swallowed while eating. But too often sulfur burps is not a healthy sign and may signal disturbance. Here are common causes of belching that you should be aware of.
Eat too fast, eating too fast makes you swallow a lot of air while eating. The air is trapped in the gastrointestinal tract and is released by mouth, after you have finished eating in the form of saltpeter.
Drink carbonated beverages, if drinking cold drinks, bubbles will form in the body, which causes irritation of the diaphragm and released from the mouth in the form of gas. Certain foods, most people are unaware of the fact that certain foods can also cause burps.
Foods that can cause you to burp are fatty foods, chewing gum, caffeine, peppermint, fried foods and chocolate.
Gastric acid or GERD, in some cases, heartburn and GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease) also cause sulfur burps. Due to excess acid in the stomach, you tend to swallow more air to clean up the gas, which eventually leads to excess air causing belching.
Certain medications, there are many drugs that can cause belching, such as laxatives, pain killers or calcium supplements. Indigestion and other problems, people suffering from various stomach problems, such as acidity, indigestion, or stomach ulcers will burp more often. This is due to accumulation of gas in the body.
Impaired gallbladder, gallstones or problems with gallbladder can also cause belching. If it happens too often, consult your doctor immediately. Helicobacter pylori infection, it is a bacterium that causes stomach upsets, which increases the risk of other abdominal complications such as gastritis, gastric ulcer and GERD (gastric acid).
Cancer of the esophagus or stomach, in rare cases, cancer of the esophagus or stomach also causes belching. The normal process of belching causes air buildup in the upper abdomen, which is ejected from the esophagus through the mouth. But in the case of esophageal and gastric cancer, there may be excessive sulfur burps along with a feeling of satiety, although eating only a little.
