SeveralIssuesComplex: Stomach & intestinal activity is under brain/mind (subconscious) control 24/7 & there are many variables. In any case, increased volume of food intake (fast food/sugar might contribute) &/or emotional responses to life issues, along with dehydration, can easily drive such issues. On the contrary, eating small amounts per meal & aerobic type exercises tend to significantly decrease such problems.
