Brief Answer:
Taking fiber rich diet should help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

It seems that somehow you are having stasis of food matter in the intestines. The undigested food matter is degraded by the bacteria and they overgrow. Increasing the rate of gastrointestinal movements should help in resolution of the problem. Taking plenty of green leafy vegetables and other fiber rich foods should help.
