Thanks for writing to us,
To almost immediately get rid of bloating, these things would help:
a. Take Tablet Prevacid 1 tablet immediately . This will decrease the acid formation and help
b. Drink a non sweetened carbonated beverage like diet sprite or diet fanta which helps loosen the sphincters which guard the stomach. This helps relieve the wind
c. Go for a jog immediately. This should definitely help
d. Finally, a yoga asana called vajrasana can help you significantly. Please find the details on how to do this asana here;
WWW.WWWW.WW If this is a one off event, its fine. If it gets repeated frequently, you should modify your lifestyle by avoiding caffeine, smoking and alcohol; eating small meals through the day and having an early dinner.
Hope this helps
