Excessive gas?

Excessive gas?

Todays article is gonna be about gas. Yep you read right, call it flatulence, gas, passing wind or what have you, its all the same thing. So what can you do to prevent these annoying and sometimes embarrassing moments? Well for one you can try to get to the root of the issue. Many people have certain foods that give them excessive gas. I’ve found that keeping a diary of what you eat and when you have the gas is an easy way to pinpoint trigger foods. Once you’ve pinpointed those foods, either eliminate them completely or eat them in small amounts.

Other things that can provide a cure for stomach gas

One I found interesting was drinking at least half an hour before eating. Apparently drinking dilutes the stomach acids which in turn makes it that much harder for your stomach to process the food being dumped into it. Makes sense.

Another thing that you can do to combat excessive gas is take a quality digestive enzyme. You will know rapidly if this is the solution – usually a few weeks.

Natural cures for gas in your pantry

Feeling gassy or have stomach pains? Pull out that peppermint tea and brew yourself a cup. Peppermint naturally soothes the digestive system.  Make sure to let the teabag steep in hot water for a good 10-15 minutes before drinking for full effect.

  1. Boil some water
  2. Get a cup and add a teabag to it
  3. Pour the boiling water into the cup
  4. Let steep for 10-15 minutes (I like to put a plate over the cup to maintain its temperature)
  5. Drink tea!

Nibbling on a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger before meals is another great way to reduce inflammation and gas.

Fun Fact⇒ According to Rocket News, in China professional “fart sellers” make up to $50,000 detecting flatulent odors to diagnose disease. How would you like that on your LinkedIn profile?

  2. Hello, I was not aware that these foods cause gas, the thing is these food are so healthy, in fact, I have written several health articles on these foods. I have a question for you, should we cut out these health foods or should we eat them in moderation? Your post is very informative with good information, that your readers will love. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for the comment Norman!

      To answer your question, these foods are the most likely to cause gas. Everyone’s digestive system is different, so if your having issues with excessive gas, these would be the first foods you’d want to experiment with. Try cutting out one at a time and see if it makes a difference. Alternatively, you can keep a diary of what you eat and if you have gas afterword’s. This will help narrow down the trigger foods.

  3. I knew some vegetables produced gas but didn’t realize fruits like apples, peaches and pears did as well. It does explain a lot though. I try to stay away from onions, broccoli or cauliflower, but you can stay away from them completely. Is there any other tea that can help with gas? I’m not a big fan of peppermint.

    1. Hi Kevin, thanks for the comment!

      Fennel tea is also a great one to help with gas & bloating. You can also try ginger either fresh or in teabags. Fennel actually stimulates the production of digestive enzymes which helps negate the effects of IBS and gas if taken regularly.

      Take care,

  4. I find that beans and onions can give me some gas, so I try not to have too much of them. I have to admit when somebody has fouled the air, it is hard to show the correct etiquette according to the suggestions at the beginning of your post.

    Some people are more blunt than others at expressing their displeasure lol, so to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation; it is good to follow your tips here.

    When you mentioned drinking at least half an hour before eating, does drinking water help or do you need to drink something else?

    1. Thanks for your comment Adrian!

      Drinking any liquid helps. The idea is to prevent your stomach acid from becoming diluted, so that its strong enough to quickly digest food. Some people find this helps more than others.
