Have you ever been out, and all of a sudden, you’re in pain? Your stomach is filling with gas, and the only way you’re going to find relief is through passing it. Tooting in public can be embarrassing, though. If you manage to avoid a noisy one, it may be really smelly which is almost worse.
Stomach gas can be very discomforting and painful and can distract you from work or anything. Abdominal bloating is when the area fills with gas and can cause the area to look bigger than normal and painful to touch.
Having ways to prevent and fight gas and bloating is the best way to deal with the problem. If the gas never forms to begin with, no embarrassment has to happen.
In addition to over-the-counter gas relief remedies, some items commonly found in the kitchen may double as natural gas relievers.
In the case of gas in the stomach, take a teaspoon of yellow mustard with a glass of water, and the turmeric it contains will treat the issue.
Medical News Today suggests “eating raw, low-sugar fruits, such as apricots, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, grapefruits, peaches, strawberries, and watermelons” as a way to fight gas and bloating.
Carbonated drinks and beer are among the main culprits for the formation of gas and bloating in the stomach. According to Medical News Today, drink your beverages at room temperature to prevent these issues.
If you had a meal that might create gas, get up and go for a walk, to help the movement of gas through the intestines.
The body cannot easily break down the sugars found in beans, onions, milk, artificial sweeteners, wheat, and green leafy veggies, so you should help this function by taking the necessary enzymes like Lactaid and Beano.
Prepare yourself a cup of anise, chamomile, turmeric, peppermint, caraway, coriander, or fennel tea. In the case of fennel, caraway, anise, and coriander pour a cup of hot water over 1 to 2 teaspoons of crushed seeds and leave the tea to steep for 10 to 15 minutes.
Ginger helps to stop gas from forming inside the stomach, rather than actually treating gas problems after you have them. So if you want to keep flatulence away chew on a fresh piece of ginger after you’ve eaten or add some fresh ginger to your food. Alternatively, you can make a ginger tea by grating some fresh ginger and adding it to a cup of boiling water. Leave to steep for 20 minutes, strain, then reheat as hot as you can handle it. Slowly sip. Be sure to drink this tea 3 times a day for best results. Ginger is also safe to use during pregnancy as long as you stick to these recommendations.
