If we see ayurvedic point of view, here pitta dosha (physical energy presenting fire) is vitiated due to causative factors like excessive intake of sour, spicy, hot, packed foods, more anger, frustration, stress etc. Vitiated Pitta dosha leads to impaired digestion and Ama (toxins) gets accumulated in digestive gut. This again causes Vata to get out of control and leads to bloating of gas along with symptoms like abdominal pain, cramps, loose motions etc.
