How can I prevent belching?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Here are a few smart self-care tips to help prevent burping:
  • Take an antacid if you must, but first...
  • Slow down when you eat. Chew your food completely before swallowing, and don't talk with your mouth full. Also, don't exercise right after eating.
  • Try drinking a glass of water mixed with a teaspoon of lemon juice, or a cup of peppermint or chamomile tea.
  • Calm down with a bit of mindful meditation. It reduces stress and slows down your breathing, which can help quiet your noisy belly.
