Good afternoon, thanks for the question

Belching is the body's effort to remove excess air from the upper digestive tract. Generally belching is caused by swallowing excessive air, for example when eating or drinking too fast, talking when eating, chewing gum, drinking soda, or smoking.

Gastric acid reflux into the esophagus or called GERD sometimes also causes excessive belching. Meanwhile, chronic belching that may occur due to inflammation of the gastric mucosa or is called gastritis or due to Helicobacter pylori infection that results in ulceration in the stomach. In this condition complaints of belching is also accompanied by a burning sensation in the chest or pain in the gut.

To overcome belching, consider the following:
1. Eat and drink in no hurry.
2. Avoid consuming soft drinks.
3. Avoid consuming gum or candy with hard consistency.
4. Don't smoke.
5. If you use dentures you should check whether they are installed properly because improper dentures can cause swallowing excess air when eating and drinking.
6. Moving relaxed like walking after eating.
7. If accompanied by a burning sensation, consume antacids that can be bought freely to neutralize excess stomach acid.

Generally complaints will improve by applying the things above. However, if complaints persist, you should consult with your doctor again for examination and get adequate treatment. It is known that the α-aminobutyric acid agonist group can relieve supragastric heavy burping, but it must be based on a doctor's prescription. If the results of the examination may be caused by the condition of GERD, the proton pump inhibitor can be given.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
