Rumbling or bubbling belly? This is what it means

5. Gastro intestinal problems

There are even more causes for a bubbling belly such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), obstipation or Crohn’s disease when it concerns your bowels. Does the bubbling come from your stomach? Then it could be an indication of a stomach ulcer, a gastric rupture or a gastric acid deficiency.

6. Sloshing stomach and bowels

When you drank a lot of water or ate a lot of soup, you can hear some sloshing in your belly. This is all the fluid that is in your stomach. You can also have sloshing bowels. The fluid gets filtered out of your stool in the large intestine so it is still liquid on the way there. This can cause it to slosh when the fluid is in your bowels.


What can you do about a growling, rumbling or bubbling belly? When the cause is innocent such as gasses or fluids, we have a few tips for you. Firstly, put sugar and carbs to the side and try and solve it using probiotics. Secondly, eat a sufficiency amount of fibre and try to stay away from processed foods. Thirdly, eat smaller meals at regular set times. Lastly, have some yoghurt, buttermilk, or kefir as these products can calm your bowels. However, do you have a really noisy belly? Then it may be wise to visit your GP in order to make sure that it isn’t a serious condition.
