You’ve just sat down for a sunny outdoor brunch and noticed that sweat stains have begun to appear on your clothes. You’ve finished a delicious meal with friends, and now your stomach is performing an experimental song for all to hear. These and other health issues, however minor, can be a drag. Thankfully, there are several quick fixes you turn to when your body is trying to cramp your style. Look to these top embarrassing health moments and the simple measures you can take to address them.

Rumbling Stomach


No matter how great a sense of humor you or any of your companions has, a rumbling stomach can be an awkward and embarrassing. Unfortunately, it’s a perfectly normal and healthy byproduct of digestion, and, once you have the rumbles, the only thing to do, really, is let your stomach finish its symphony. There are, however, some preventative measures you can take. Rumbling can be exacerbated by food intolerance issues (such as lactose intolerance), drinking carbonated beverages, eating foods containing artificial sweeteners, and swallowing excessive air by eating too quickly or chewing gum. Additionally, you can try repositioning your body or loosening your built to give your digestive system more room to work with.
