Why does my burps smell of food?
Depleted gut flora.
As per your query answer is-
See whenever food reaches intestines for digestion, it is acted upon by a number of bacteria in gut. When number of good bacteria is more then bad bacteria's in gut digestion of food is proper.
Foul Smell in burps or poop is always suggestive of fact that there is improper digestion of food causing fermentation.This fermented food act as a source of nutrition for a number of bad bacteria's and fungus.Hence the number of bad bacteria's outreaches the good one causing bloating belching feeling heaviness in stomach etc.
Secondly this fermented food releases large amount of gases mainly Hydrogen Sulphide which gives bad odor to fart or burps.
Our body derives its nutrition from food we eat so when your digestion is not good you would feel fatigue lassitude malaise etc.
Initially go for a test called stool routine and microscopy
Take a course of Rifaximin once daily for 10 days(anti-bacterial)
Tab Metrogyl twice daily for 5 days(for protozoans)
The above two medicines are taken under doctor's guidance.
Probiotic twice daily for 21 days to replete the gut flora.
Cap Rablet l(once daily in morning empty stomach for 10 days).
You would get them at your nearest medical shop.
Eat light food.
Moong dal khichdi with curd would be good for you.
Avoid milk ghee butter etc for 10 days.
Take curd every day divided in three or four meals.
You would feel much better in 5 days.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
