How to Get Rid of Stomach Pain and Gas: Remedies and Treatments

All bodies produce gas as part of their normal, day-to-day functioning. As we eat, we swallow some air. Plus our digestive tracts produce additional gas as bacteria in the colon breaks down certain foods.

As long as gas moves through the body, intestinal gas is not generally painful. However, when a bubble of gas gets trapped inside, the pain can range from mild to intense. Stomach pain and gas can result from a number of different things. Some of the most common causes of stomach pain and gas include:

Gas pain is often described as generalized or as cramp-like. More localized pain or pain that comes in waves may indicate a different cause.

In addition, some women experience more gas during certain times of their cycle. Hormones may affect both digestion and a person’s sensitivity to gas.

Remedies and Treatments for Stomach Pain and Gas

Most stomach pain and gas will go away on its own, but there are steps you can take to ease discomfort and prevent future gas pain. Gas-related stomach pain remedies include:

Pass Gas

The only way to get rid of gas is to pass it. Don’t hold it in. If you’re worried about odor, try reducing foods that contain sulfur-producing compounds such as broccoli, cabbage, and beer.

Over-the-Counter Medications

Many gas-relieving products are marketed, but scientific evidence of their effectiveness is limited. Many people claim to experience relief, so they may be worth trying. The most common medications that claim to relieve immediate symptoms are activated charcoal and simethicone (Gas X, Gas Relief).

Herbal Remedies

Peppermint and peppermint oil have the best record as digestive aids, but there are many other foods that may help. In one study, Chinese herbal formulae outperformed placebos in soothing IBS symptoms. Commonly included ingredients are:

Exercise

Working out can help prevent constipation and gas pain. Even just getting up and walking about can help. The body retains more gas when supine (lying face upwards).

Stomach Massage

A gentle self-massage can help ease pressure and cramping associated with gas and may even help relieve constipation. Rub your fingers in a small circular motion, moving clockwise and traveling up the right side of your stomach and down the left. 

Diet Changes

The following foods are known to produce gas, so consume them with care:

  • High-fiber foods
  • Fruits and sweets rich in fructose
  • Sorbitol
  • Dairy products, which contain lactose
  • Cruciferous vegetables

Habit Changes 

Habits that can make you swallow more air and lead to more gas include:

  • Smoking
  • Eating too quickly
  • Chewing gum or sucking on candy
  • Consuming a lot of carbonation
  • Drinking through a straw
  • Wearing ill-fitting dentures

Enzymes Before Eating Certain Foods

Taking enzymes before you eat can help you better digest your meal. Most enzymes are only available for those with a medical condition that prevents them from producing their own. However, two widely available enzymes for problematic foods are:

  • Lactase supplements (such as Lactrase or Lactaid) can help those who are lactose intolerant.
  • Alpha-galactosidase supplements (such as Beano or Bean Relief) can help people digest legumes.

When to See a Doctor

While most cases of stomach pain and gas can be treated at home, you should talk to your doctor if you are worried. You should also consult your doctor if:

  • Your pain lasts more than a couple days
  • Stomach gas and pain remain well after an immediate cause, such as constipation, is relieved

Potential causes of more enduring gas pain include celiac disease and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). If you suspect you may have celiac disease, pay attention to your gluten intake to discover whether pain changes accordingly. 

SIBO is generally seen in people who have:

  • Had abdominal surgeries
  • Diverticulosis
  • Systemic diseases
  • Compromised immune systems
  • History of narcotic abuse
  • Long-term use of acid-suppressive medications

Call your doctor to discuss frequent stomach pain and gas if your medical history includes any of the above issues.

Emergency Care

While gas pains do not usually require emergency treatment, there is some danger that more serious conditions could present as gas pain. If you also experience chest pain or pressure, call 911 immediately.

The following symptoms also could indicate an emergent situation. You should visit an urgent care center or emergency room if your stomach pain is accompanied by any of these symptoms:

In addition, severe abdominal pain can also be an indicator that something more is wrong. If your pain is extreme and debilitating, seek treatment immediately.

4 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Gas Pain Fast

  • Home remedies to get rid of gas include taking probiotics, exercising, using peppermint oil capsules, and applying heat.
  • Gas happens when partially digested foods ferment in your large intestine and produce air bubbles, which come out as gas.
  • Yoga poses like child’s pose and seated twist can also help you relieve gas.

Gas is a normal part of how your digestive system functions. In fact, most people pass gas around 14 times per day. But in some cases, too much gas can build up in your intestines and you may experience bloating or have stomach cramping. 

Most of the time, gas will clear up without treatment, but if you’re looking for faster relief there are several methods you can try at home to ease your symptoms. Here are some of the science-backed methods to relieve gas.

How do you get gas? 

There are three main ways that gas enters your digestive system:

  1. Basic digestion: Gas is created when the bacteria that live in your large intestine break down certain foods. Carbohydrates, in particular,  take longer to break down and can reach your large intestine without being fully digested. These partially digested foods sit in your large intestine and go through a fermentation process that produces air bubbles, which come out as gas. 
  2. Swallowing air: Gas can also get into your digestive tract when you swallow air while eating and drinking. You may swallow even more air than normal while chewing gum, drinking carbonated drinks like soda, or smoking.
  3. Food intolerance: You may also have more trouble with gas if you have any type of food intolerance, says Kyle Staller, MD, MPH, Director of the Gastrointestinal (GI) Motility Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. “A good example of this is when people have lactose intolerance,” Staller says. “Part of the milk sugar doesn’t get completely absorbed so it is happily used by bacteria to make gas.”

In some cases, gas may pass out of your system with no issue, but if you are struggling with bloating or gas pain, you can try one of the methods below for relief.

1. Take probiotics

Probiotics can help reduce gas and relieve stomach discomfort from excess gas. Though not all probiotics are created equal.

“There are so many different types of probiotics that it can be difficult to identify the right product for the right person,” Staller says. However, research indicates that the strain Bifidobacterium could be useful.

In a small study published in 2020 in Nutrients, researchers tested 63 healthy individuals. For the first three days, the participants consumed a high fiber diet to induce gas. Then for the next 28 days, they added a half cup of probiotic milk product containing Bifidobacterium animalis twice per day with their regular diet. They then ingested the same high fiber diet for three days at the end of the study.

Results showed that after four weeks of the probiotic food, participants had a much less severe reaction to the high fiber diet, feeling less bloated and passing gas fewer times during the day.

Stellar agrees that for people wanting relief from excess gas, probiotics containing Bifidobacterium are likely to be the most effective.

2. Get exercise

Research shows that exercise can help decrease the feeling of being bloated. This is because when your exercise, your intestines are stimulated to move gas more quickly through your digestive system.

Some of the most effective exercises to help relieve gas include:

  • Lying on your back and moving your legs in a bicycle motion through the air.
  • Taking a short walk after eating.
  • Certain yoga poses may help you pass gas and relieve your symptoms. More research is needed, but studies show that yoga can help with some irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms. Two examples of gas relieving poses are:
    • Child’s pose: 
      • Start by kneeling on the floor with your big toes touching behind you and your knees about hip’s width apart. 
      • Sit back onto your heels and fold forward over your knees, letting your head drop. 
      • Reach your arms forward to place your hands on the floor
    • Seated twist: 
        • Start by sitting on the floor with your right leg bent in a cross-legged position. 
        • Cross your left leg over your right knee and place your foot on the floor so your left knee points upward. 
        • Gently turn your body toward the left side and hook your right elbow on the outside of your left knee. 
        • Repeat on the opposite side.
        • You can find a more comprehensive guide to helpful yoga poses for digestion here. 

3. Try peppermint oil

There is evidence that peppermint oil can improve symptoms of IBS, like constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and excess gas. This is because peppermint has antispasmodic qualities, meaning that it stops your colon from having involuntary muscle contractions that can contribute to  gastrointestinal distress.

A review published in 2014 in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology found that across 9 studies, IBS patients who took peppermint oil saw a significant improvement in their stomach pains, compared with other participants.

You can get peppermint oil in capsules and take one about an hour before eating a meal. 

4. Apply heat

There is evidence that using a heating pad can help treat stomach pain caused by gas. Researchers at University College London found that placing a heating pad of 104 degrees Fahrenheit on your stomach can help relieve pain for up to an hour. This is because when your body “switches on” heat receptors, some of your pain receptors are deactivated, which works similar to a numbing agent [if true].

Though this study did not evaluate gas pain specifically, Staller says that, “many of my patients with excess gas and bloating do feel better when placing a heating pad against their abdomen.

The bottom line

The uncomfortable symptoms of excess gas can often be treated using home remedies. But if you find yourself having bloating or gas pains regularly, you should contact your doctor to discuss making changes to your diet and to make sure there is no serious underlying cause of your symptoms.

10 Ways Get Rid of Gas, Pain & Bloating, According to Doctors

We all pass gas (and burp)—it’s natural and it has nothing to do with air and bacteria. “The GI tract doesn’t absorb air and gas well, so almost all of it eventually comes out northbound or southbound,” says Patricia Raymond, M.D., a gastroenterologist in Norfolk, VA. As gut bugs ferment carbohydrates from food, they produce gas, which then exits through your backside. And the air you swallow while eating, talking, and breathing rises back up to be expelled via your mouth. When gas passes too slowly or too much builds up, that can make your belly bloat.

Gas usually isn’t harmful, but if bloating persists, see a doctor, especially if it’s accompanied by abdominal pain more severe than the “pop an antiacid” kind, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, weight loss, or frequent heartburn—all signs that an issue like irritable bowel syndrome or celiac disease may be involved.

How to Prevent Gas, Pain, and Bloating

Limit “problem” foods.

Easy Meal Plans, Recipes, and Tips to Calm Your Gut

If the small intestine lacks specific enzymes, certain foods can make it to the colon without being broken down, providing a feast to gas-generating bacteria. If you often battle gas, limit problem foods like high-fiber beans, peas, cabbage, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and prunes as well as milk. Eat more slowly too—you’ll swallow less air than when you shovel it in. “This reduces burps and prevents large amounts of food from reaching the intestines all at once and causing gas,” says Aasma Shaukat, M. D., spokesperson for the American Gastroenterological Association.

Breathe deeply.

Practicing meditation or mindful breathing trains the body to draw out air deeply into the lungs instead of taking short breaths that direct air into the esophagus. It also reduces stress and anxiety, both linked to increased sensitivity to gas. “There’s a brain-gut axis, so calming the brain helps regulate the autonomic nervous system in the GI tract, which can lead to less gas,” Dr. Shaukat says.

Get moving.

Exercise pushes foods through the GI tract faster, reducing constipation, bloating, and gas, says Dr. Raymond. It also releases endorphins that relieve stress and help the nervous system regulate the gut. Aim to get 30 minutes of physical activity three to five times a week.

Reduce gluten.

Too much gluten in your diet can cause digestion issues for many people. “Even if you don’t have celiac disease, ingesting less wheat often improves gas symptoms if you have an intolerance to gluten in wheat, rye, and barley,” Dr. Raymond says.

Do kegels.

Strong pelvic floor muscles can help keep gas from escaping at socially unacceptable times, Dr. Shaukat says. Practice tense up as if holding in urine for three seconds, then relax for three seconds and repeat.

13 to 21: The number of times people usually fart every day, most often after meals. Women’s farts tend to be stinkier than men’s due to higher concentration of odoriferous chemical hydrogen sulfide.

Keep a food journal.

While there are a host of foods that commonly cause people problems, everyone has different sensitivities. So it’s best to observe and note when you are feeling particularly bloaty so you can rule things out.

“If you run into a hard, puffy stomach quite often, it may be due to certain food intolerances,” says Taz Bhatia, M. D., an integrative health expert and founder of CentreSpring MD. “I always recommend keeping a food journal in these cases. Being able to go back and see which foods seem to cause these types of symptoms can keep a bloated belly at bay.”

The Best Treatments for Gas and Bloating

BEST SOFTGELS

Gas-X Extra Strength Softgels

The coating on these soft gels makes them easy to swallow, which is helpful if you’re not the best at taking down pills. (They come in chewables too.) The active ingredient, simethicone, encourages tiny gas bubbles to merge together so you can expel them easier and relieve some of that painful pressure.

BEST LIQUID

Mylanta Antacid and Gas Relief

This minty liquid medicine coats the stomach, helping to relieve gas, bloating, and any acid indigestion right away—thanks to a combination of active ingredients (simethicone, aluminum hydroxide, and magnesium hydroxide).

BEST CHEWABLES

Lactaid Fast Act Lactose Intolerance Chewables

amazon.com

If dairy is your downfall, chowing down on these tablets before you indulge in a scoop of ice cream or a fresh mozzarella panini should help a lot. They contain a natural enzyme, lactase, which helps break down the lactose in milk products that you’d otherwise have trouble digesting. 

NATURAL PICK

Taylors of Harrogate Lemon & Ginger Herbal Tea

Did you know that lemon is a natural detoxifier? It acts as a cleansing agent, which, Taz explains, helps to eliminate unwanted bloat from the body. She recommends sipping on hot lemon water in the morning. Or try balancing your digestive system with this caffeine-free herbal tea.

The 6 Best Natural Remedies for Gas (and 4 to Skip)

There are a few things that are definitely true about gas. First? Everyone gets a little gassy from time to time. And second? Nobody likes it.

What’s less clear is the best way to banish that bloated feeling. Home remedies for gas abound, but not all of them are proven problem-solvers. And in fact, some DIY treatments might actually do more harm than good.

So what can you do to win the wind war, and which fixes really aren’t worth it? If you’re curious about home remedies for gas, here’s what science has to say on getting rid of those stomach pains.

Going for a walk can help get rid of gas quickly.

“It’s long been known that activity and bowel function go hand in hand,” says Jeff Scott, MD, board-certified gastroenterologist and founder of Happy Colon Foods. When you move your body, the food in your GI tract keeps moving too.

Regular physical activity can help keep constipation at bay and prevent gassy buildup, according to the Mayo Clinic.

“When we develop a sluggish colon, stool sits too long and continues to undergo fermentation by colonic bacteria, which produces gas as a byproduct,” Dr. Scott explains.

Add less gas to the list of benefits that come with staying hydrated.

Here’s just one more reason to sip: Drinking water may help your digestion, reducing the amount of gas you produce.

That glass of h3O plays a key role in breaking down food as it passes through your gut, as well as making stool soft and easy to pass, according to the Mayo Clinic. And both of those things can fight the formation of gas.

Your body is about 60 percent water, and you need it for many life functions.

Water helps cleanse toxins from your organs, carries nutrients throughout your body, and keeps your tissues moist.

If you do not get enough water, you can suffer from dehydration. Dehydration affects all of your body’s systems, and even mild dehydration could lead to fatigue and headaches.

Plus, dehydration can cause gas and bloating in its own way. Dehydration is one risk factor for constipation, according to the Mayo Clinic, and being constipated can lead to excess gas and bloating. Staying hydrated is one way to reduce the chances of experiencing such discomforts.

If your gas is on the other end of things, and you find yourself burping after drinking water, try slowing down. Belching is often a symptom of swallowing excess air, which can happen if you eat, drink or talk too quickly, per the Mayo Clinic.

Making an effort to slow down may help reduce these symptoms.

Tip

How much water should you drink? As a general rule, aim for about half your body weight in ounces each day, suggests the University of Missouri System.

3. Try Certain Yoga Poses

A regular yoga practice can be an effective way to manage irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms like gas, according to a December 2016 review in ​Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology​​.

And while there’s not much formal research on gas-fighting poses for people without IBS, experts say positions that involve bringing your knees to your chest could probably be helpful.

Yoga poses for gas relief — like wind-relieving pose, child’s pose and happy baby — are good examples to try.

“It’s almost like promoting forward movement, like pushing air out of an air mattress before folding it up,” explains Rabia De Latour, MD, gastroenterologist and assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health.

Try these positions when you have built-up gas in your stomach or chest:

  1. Start by lying on your back on a mat or soft surface.
  2. Slowly bring one knee to your chest, grasping it with both hands and pulling it toward your body. Hold for five seconds, then release.
  3. Repeat with the other knee.
  4. Bring both knees to your chest, wrapping your arms around them to pull them closer to your body.
  5. Hold for five seconds, rocking gently side to side, then release.
  1. Start by kneeling on a mat or soft surface.
  2. Place your hands on the mat, then slowly push your bottom back onto your heels.
  3. With your arms stretched out in front of you, palms on the mat, lower your forehead to the mat so your chest and abdomen are against your upper thighs (you can spread your knees if that’s more comfortable).
  4. Hold for 30 seconds or as long as feels good to you.
  1. Start by lying on your back on your mat or a soft surface
  2. Slowly bring your knees into your chest, taking hold of the outer edges of your feet.
  3. Spread your knees apart, bringing them up toward your armpits.
  4. Flex your heels as you push your feet into your hands, making sure your ankles are directly over your knees and your shins are perpendicular to the floor.
  5. Hold or gently rock side to side for 30 seconds, or as long as feels good.

To help relieve gas, try drinking tea rather than carbonated beverages like soda or seltzer.

Herbal products have traditionally been used to improve digestion and relieve gas pain. But the research so far has looked at essential oils and supplements more than teas.

Still, it’s possible that the right herbal sipper could ease your symptoms, Dr. De Latour says. “There’s virtually no downside to trying, so it’s a great option,” she notes.

Curious about the best teas for bloating? A few contenders to consider when you have stomach pain and gas:

  • Peppermint tea:​ Peppermint contains compounds that encourage the gastrointestinal tract to relax, according to a September 2019 review in ​Plant Foods for Human Nutrition​​.​ And that could help release trapped gas.
  • Chamomile tea:​ The same review concluded that chamomile can also encourage the GI tract to relax.
  • Ginger tea:​ Taking ginger and artichoke leaf capsules before meals helped reduce feelings of pain and bloating, found an April 2015 study in ​Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine​. It’s not clear whether tea can have the same effect, but as Dr. De Latour says, it’s worth a try.

Does Green Tea Help With Bloating?

Some test tube and animal studies have linked the antioxidants in green tea with less gas and bloating, but there’s no research to show this in humans. If you decide to try green tea, keep in mind that it has caffeine, which some people should limit, including those with heart problems or anemia, or people taking certain medications.

5. Eat Gut-Friendly Foods

Eating more probiotic-rich foods may help prevent gas over time.

Foods rich in probiotics might be your best bet.

There are no foods that eliminate or “absorb” gas, but the friendly bugs in these foods increase digestive-supporting bacteria and reduce bad bacteria that interfere with digestion, which over time could promote a healthier gut, according to the Cleveland Clinic. And a healthier gut can mean less gas.

Foods rich in prebiotics — special plant fibers — might be helpful, too. Prebiotics nourish the good bacteria in your GI tract to help the friendly microbes do their job, which could set the stage for better digestion, according to the Mayo Clinic.

You can find prebiotics in fiber-rich plant foods like:

6.

Avoid or Limit Certain Foods and Drinks

Sorbitol can cause gas and bloating, so you may want to avoid sugar-free gum and candies with this ingredient.

If you notice a particular food or drink tends to get you gassy, one of the easiest and most effective solutions is to simply steer clear, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

Different foods can be gas triggers for different people. But some of the most common culprits include:

  • High-fiber foods:​ This is especially true if you increase how much you’re eating very quickly. Bran, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli and beans are some of the most notorious offenders, according to the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG).
  • Sugar-free snacks, gum and candies:​ Many contain sugar alcohols like sorbitol, which can make you gassy, the ACG says. That’s because sorbitol is broken down very slowly by your body — meaning it stays in your system longer than most other foods — and can cause bloating from gas-producing bacteria in your intestines. (Sorbitol is also found in apples, pears, peaches, prunes and some berries, but in very small amounts. In this case, it’s eventually converted to fructose, or “fruit sugar,” by enzymes in your large intestine.)
  • Carbonated drinks:​ According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the bubbles in seltzer or carbonated water can bubble up in your digestive tract. The ACG says carbonated beverages are a primary risk factor for belching, bloating and gas because they create excess gastric air.
  • Fried or fatty foods:​ Heavy, greasy food is harder for your body to digest, leading to indigestion and gas, according to the NIDDK.
  • Dairy products:​ If you’re lactose intolerant, milk, ice cream and some cheeses could make you bloated and gassy, per the ACG. (But yogurt may be OK!)

What About Probiotic Supplements?

If probiotic-rich foods are good for digestion, is it better to just pop a pill? Probiotic supplements may play a role in managing gas and bloating, concluded a May 2019 ​Advances in Therapy​ review.

But for now, the research is unclear on the best probiotics for gas and flatulence — we don’t know which probiotic strains or combination of probiotics work best in treating certain diseases or health conditions, per the Cleveland Clinic.

What’s more, you might experience some unintended side effects. Probiotics could cause an upset stomach, diarrhea, flatulence or bloating in the first few days after taking them, the Cleveland Clinic says.

In all, “some studies have shown minor benefit and some have not,” Dr. De Latour says.

Instead of focusing on supplements, she recommends sticking with a well-rounded, plant-based diet and avoiding foods that seem to trigger gas for you.

What About Papaya Enzymes?

Papain, an enzyme found in papaya, has traditionally been touted for its ability to aid digestion and settle upset stomachs. But the benefits aren’t backed by any high-quality research, Dr. Scott says.

And in fact, papain might make your stomach woes worse. According to an August 2014 ​Mayo Clinic Proceedings​ review, over-the-counter papain supplements can trigger gastritis — stomach inflammation that can cause pain, nausea and vomiting.

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help With Gas?

Apple cider vinegar is touted as a home remedy for many digestive problems. But there’s zero credible evidence that it can help ease gas.

Plus, because it’s acidic, drinking the undiluted vinegar could actually irritate your stomach and make you more uncomfortable.

If you are interested in testing out ACV for gas, indigestion or acid reflux, be sure to dilute the substance before drinking.

You can start by diluting one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into a warm mug of water, advises the Cleveland Clinic. While there’s not much research to support health claims tied to apple cider vinegar and GI issues, the risk of trying it is generally low.

Baking soda is thought to be a DIY heartburn remedy — albeit one with potentially harmful consequences if you consume too much too quickly, according to 2013 findings in the ​Journal of Medical Toxicology​. But there’s no evidence that it can help get rid of gas pain or bloating.

“It has the ability to quickly neutralize acid and raise the pH in your stomach. That does not, however, prevent gas and can cause some problems with medication absorption and increase fluid retention due to its salt content,” Dr. Scott says.

In other words? Steer clear of this supposed natural remedy for gas and acidity.

11 Working Home Remedies for Gas & Bloating

A gassy stomach or flatulence is not only embarrassing but can be the cause of severe discomfort. It often results in cramps, heaviness, bloating and heartburn. A lot depends upon your everyday food choices. A diet rich in carbs or sugary fruit juices can be a source of gas and bloating.

Additional Tips to Get Rid of Trapped Gas

Some other tips for doing away with trapped gas can be:

  • Exercise or physical activity can help let out trapped gas. Light walking after meals, regular jogging, performing yoga poses can help expel gas.
  • It is best to let go of the gas rather than holding it in. Passing stool can help in setting free the gas stuck in the intestines.
  • Herbal teas made from anise and peppermint can boost digestion and diminish gas pain.
  • Placing a heating pad on the affected area may prove helpful in releasing some of the confined gas.

How to Prevent Gas and Bloating

Some ways to prevent gas and bloating can include the following tips:

  • Eat slowly and concentrate on chewing your food while eating to aid proper digestion. Eating while moving or too quickly may cause you to gulp surplus air along with food resulting in gas-related complaints.
  • Refrain from chewing gum as it can increase the chances of swallowing air which may lead to gas pains. Also, gum may contain artificial sweeteners which can trigger bloating and gas.
  • Sip water from a glass instead of using a straw or drinking straight from a bottle, as it can become a ground for taking in more air.
  • In case you smoke, try and quit the habit. Smoking can cause extra air to go in the digestive tract giving rise to gas and bloating.
  • Avoid the consumption of carbonated drinks like sodas and sparkling water as they can produce gas in the stomach.
  • Certain foods can prompt trapped gas. Find your triggers and discard the problematic foods from your diet.

What Should You Avoid Eating when You Have Gas?

Food that you may want to avoid eating when you have gas are:

  • Dairy products
  • Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower
  • Artificial sweeteners like sorbitol, maltitol and aspartame
  • Fried foods
  • Onion and garlic
  • Spicy foods
  • High-fat foods
  • Legumes like lentils and beans
  • Prunes

How to Get Rid of Gas: 8 Natural Treatments

Flatulence and gas are normal bodily functions, and most healthy adults pass gas somewhere between 13 and 21 times each day.  Flatulence is a healthy part of the digestive process, but it can cause discomfort and pain as gas builds up in the intestines. Expelling the gas normally relieves the pain; however, if the pain persists or worsens, it may be a sign of a more serious condition and you should consult with your physician as soon as possible.

In addition to pain and flatulence, gas can cause bloating. Bloating is a temporary condition caused when air or gas becomes stuck in the abdomen. The result can be visible as the stomach, depending on the level of air and gas build up, can protrude significantly. In the vast majority of cases, gas pains and bloating are nothing to worry about, however, if you experience any of the following symptoms along with gas, seek medical attention as quickly as possible: (1)

  • Hives or a skin rash that develops quickly
  • Tight throat or trouble breathing which may signal an allergic reaction
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Blood in the stool or urine
  • Pain in the lymph nodes of the throat, armpits and groin
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pains
  • Weight loss
  • Persistent or recurrent nausea or vomiting
  • Trouble concentrating

If you’ve recently changed your diet by adding high-fiber foods or cruciferous vegetables, you can expect some gas and gas pain. In addition, foods known as FODMAPs as well as foods you have a sensitivity to like lactose, can also cause gas pain. And, of course, if you overindulge in a high-fat or a spicy meal, you may experience more gas than normal.

For many, if gas is a persistent problem, avoiding the foods that lead to gas pain is often the easiest and best way to prevent recurrence of symptoms. Fortunately, when acute gas pains occur, there are a number of natural remedies that help to relieve the discomfort that don’t carry the same side effects as conventional treatments for flatulence.

What Is Gas?

Gas is a natural by-product of the digestive process that is a combination of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen and sometimes methane. Gas can be passed by burping or through flatus. These gas vapors alone are generally odorless and if gas has an unpleasant odor, it is typically due to bacteria residing in the large intestine. (2)

Gas can be caused by swallowing too much air, or as undigested foods begin to break down. Belching can get rid of swallowed air containing oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, but as the gas moves into the large intestine, it is expelled through flatulence.

The reason gas develops and must be passed is simply that the body cannot digest and absorb all of the sugar, starches, proteins and fiber consumed. As they pass into the large intestine, the gut flora attacks them, breaking them down. This results in the production of hydrogen and carbon dioxide gases, and sometimes in methane. (2)

Having gas is common and natural, but it can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Certain conditions like lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance as well as other sensitivities to foods can cause digestive upset. Learning your personal triggers and avoiding those foods and beverages that cause gas to develop in your system can help prevent gas pains and potential embarrassment.

Popular over-the-counter antacids may not relieve all symptoms and may cause side effects. Fortunately, there are a number of natural treatments for gas pains that are safe and effective.

Signs and Symptoms of Gas

Commons symptoms of gas include: (3)

  • Knotted feeling in the abdomen
  • Sharp cramps
  • Jabbing pains
  • Voluntary or involuntary belching
  • Voluntary or involuntary flatus
  • Abdominal bloating
  • A feeling of bubbles in the stomach

Gas Causes and Risk Factors

Foods are often the tigger for gas, and the foods that commonly cause gas include:

  • Beans and legumes
  • Onions
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Red Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Artichokes
  • Asparagus
  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Peaches
  • Prunes
  • Potatoes
  • Corn
  • Soluble fiber from oat bran, beans and peas
  • Whole-wheat bread
  • Bran cereals
  • Bran muffins
  • Milk
  • Cream
  • Ice cream
  • Beer
  • Sodas and other carbonated beverages
  • Fiber supplements containing psyllium husk
  • Artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols including sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, aspartame and others

In addition to diet, there are a number of medical conditions that can cause gas pains. These include:

  • Lactose Intolerance: A very common condition where the body cannot breakdown lactose, a sugar found in dairy products. A lactose intolerance occurs when the small intestine stops making enough lactase necessary to breakdown the lactose. The undigested lactose migrates to the large intestine and the result is often bloating, diarrhea and gas.
  • Celiac Disease: This is a fairly common condition where a sensitivity to the protein gluten causes an immune system response in the small intestine. Over time, it can permanently damage the lining of the stomach preventing the absorption of key nutrients. Celiac disease can cause gas as well as other digestive problems like diarrhea, bloating and heartburn, but long-term, more serious conditions including anemia, osteoporosis and osteomalacia are a significant concern.
  • Crohn’s Disease: This is an inflammatory bowel disease that can cause abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, gas, weight loss and malnutrition. Crohn’s Disease is a painful and sometimes debilitating condition that can lead to potentially life-threatening fistulas.
  • Peptic Ulcer: This type of ulcer occurs when there are open sores in the lining of the small intestine. Peptic ulcers can lead to intolerance of fatty foods, burning stomach pain, heartburn, nausea, gas and bloating.
  • IBS: This common digestive disorder affects the large intestine causing gas and gas pain, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain and bloating. IBS is a chronic condition that must be managed long-term and many of the symptoms are triggered by intolerance to foods like wheat, dairy, legumes, cruciferous vegetables, carbonated drinks and citrus fruits.
  • Gastroenteritis: Typically an acute condition, gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach and intestines often caused by parasites, bacteria or viral infections. It can also be a reaction to a new food, and as a side effect of certain medications. Common symptoms include gas and gas pain, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea.
  • Diverticulitis: Diverticula are small pouches that can form in the lining of the lower part of the large intestine. Diverticulitis is a relatively common condition, particularly after the age of 40, that occurs when the pouches become inflamed or infected. Common symptoms include gas, pain, vomiting, fever, constipation and a change in bowel habits.
  • Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth: SIBO is a condition occurs when there is excessive bacteria in the small intestine that causes a disruption in the digestive process. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and generally include chronic gas, diarrhea, weight loss and malabsorption of nutrients.  

How to Get Rid of Gas Conventionally

When gas pains are severe and reoccur frequently, a trip to the doctor is in order. It is important to receive a proper diagnosis for the cause of the gas pain as some potentially serious conditions can present with bloating and pain.

In addition to a medical history and physical examination to check for distension, your physician will review your diet and perhaps order tests. Commonly requested tests include: blood tests, lactose intolerance tests, fructose malabsorption tests, colon cancer screening and, in some cases, an upper GI series of X-rays. (4)

If persistent gas pain is determined to be caused by an underlying health condition, successful treatment of the condition should help to relieve symptoms. In other cases, your physician will often recommended dietary changes, lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medications. (5)

Medications recommended may include:

  • Beano: Made from a sugar digesting enzyme, this medication may be recommended to help you digest the sugar in vegetables and beans.
  • Lactase Supplements: A supplement made from lactase, the digestive enzyme that helps to breakdown lactose.
  • Bisumth Subsalicylate (Pepto Bismol): A medication that generally reduces the odor of flatus. This medication should not be taken long-term or if you have an allergy to aspirin.
  • Simethicone Antacids (GasX, Mylanta): Medications that help to break up the bubbles in the gas, making it easier to expel.
  • Antibiotics: In you have SIBO or another infection.

How to Get Rid of Gas Naturally

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar (that contains the mother culture) with a cup of water and drink right before a meal. This can help to relieve digestive conditions including acid reflux and heartburn by boosting healthy bacteria and acid in the gut. (6)

Try switchel, a fermented drink made from apple cider vinegar, fresh ginger, real maple syrup and water. You can use natural sparkling water to add some fizz to the drink that may help you belch some of the gas in your system.  Fresh ginger is known for combatting nausea, promoting digestion and protecting against stomach ulcers. (7, 8, 9)

2. Clove Oil

Add 2–5 drops of  clove essential oil to eight ounces of water to reduce bloating and gas. It may also help other digestive problems like indigestion, motion sickness and hiccups. (1)

3. Activated Charcoal

Take 2 to 4 tablets of activated charcoal just before eating and again one hour after a meal to relieve gas pains. Activated charcoal may help relieve symptoms including flatulence, bloating and distention of the abdomen by eliminating gas trapped in the colon. (10, 11)

4. Digestive Enzymes

Take a full-spectrum digestive enzyme supplement as recommended. Look for a high-quality supplement that contains lactase to breakdown lactose in dairy, lipase to breakdown fats, amylase to breakdown starches and protease to breakdown proteins. For further digestive support, look for one with ginger and peppermint that also support healthy gut function. (12)

5. Probiotics

A high-quality probiotic supplement can help to maintain a healthy digestive tract by adding healthy bacteria to the gut. Gas symptoms may be relieved as the bacterial flora is altered according to the Cleveland Clinic. In addition, a meta-analysis of randomized placebo-controlled trials has found that probiotics reduce pain, flatulence and bloating in patients with IBS. (13)

In addition to a probiotic supplement add probiotic-rich foods to your diet including kefir, yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, natto, raw cheeses, tempeh and apple cider vinegar to improve digestion.

6. Fennel Essential Oils

Known for its digestive health and licorice-like flavor, fennel essential oil has antiseptic properties that may help relieve constipation, bloating and gas pains. Add 1 to 2 drops of fennel essential oil to water and tea and slip slowly to relieve digestive upset and flatulence.

7. Asafoeida

Take 200 milligrams to 500 milligrams of a high-quality asafoeida supplement to relieve flatulence and gas. This powerful spice is central to Ayurvedic medicine and other traditional medicinal practices for preventing and relieving digestive upset. It is widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines when preparing lentil dishes, legumes and soups. It has a very strong sulfurous odor that cooks out, making it ideal for longer cooking preparations like stews and braises. (14)

Asafoeida is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing moms, children, those with high or low blood pressure, or those with a bleeding disorder. It is known to interact with anticoagulants, antihypertensive drugs and anti-platelet medications.

8. Physical Activity

When symptoms arise, take a walk, jump rope or try rebounding. The physical activity may help to relieve gas pains by expelling gas naturally.

5 Lifestyle Changes to Help Prevent Gas

1. Eat smaller portions of foods that cause you gas

2. Eat more slowly

3. Chew foods well

4. Don’t chew gum, smoke or drink through a straw as they can cause excessive swallowing of air

5. Avoid carbonated beverages

Motilegaz® Forte – drug against bloating and gas formation

Views: 1 954

Date of last update: 08.06.2021

Average Read Time: 4 minutes

Heaviness, bloating, rumbling and abdominal pain, characteristic of flatulence, occasionally appear even in healthy people. In patients with diseases of the digestive system, these symptoms occur in 85% of cases, so pills for bloating in the abdomen are often at hand 1 .

In the intestines of a healthy person, there are constantly up to 200 ml of gases. Most are:

  • nitrogen (N 2 ) – 11-92%,
  • hydrogen (H 2 ) – 1-10%,
  • methane (CH 4 ) – 0-56%,
  • carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) – 3-54%,
  • hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S) – 0-30%.

Up to 75% of gases are formed in the intestine as a result of the activity of bacteria that make up the microflora of the gastrointestinal tract.Another reason for the increased content of gases in the intestines is the swallowing of large amounts of air (aerophagia) 1.3 .

Motelegaz® Forte is a simethicone-based preparation with antifoam and antifoam action 2 , which helps to free the intestines from gases accumulated in it.

Motelegaz® Forte is intended for the symptomatic treatment of flatulence, excessive gas formation and bloating associated with disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, including functional dyspepsia 2 .

How does Motelegaz® Forte work?

Gases are in the intestine in a free and dissolved state. Free gases are naturally discharged to the outside. The dissolved gases form small bubbles in the liquid intestinal contents, forming a stable foam 1 . If there are many such gases, flatulence develops. Bulky foam stretches the intestinal walls, causes bloating and pain, disrupts the digestion of food and thereby further increases gas production 1 .

Composition of one capsule MOTILEGAZ ® Forte 3 :

  • Active substance simethicone – 120.00 mg;
  • Excipients: gelatin – 50.6 mg, glycerol – 19.6 mg.

Motilegaz® Forte in gelatin capsules 2 , when taken orally, easily slips into the stomach and dissolves, releasing the active ingredient – simethicone 2 their excretion in a natural way 2.3 .

Motelegaz® Forte (Simethicone) – mechanism of action:

  • Miscible with intestinal contents,
  • is distributed over the surface of gas bubbles,
  • reduces the surface tension of the bubble walls,
  • the walls of the bubbles burst, the gases are released and released outside in a natural way 2.3 .

In the experiments, a liquid suspension of simethicone at a concentration of 0.1 mg / ml completely extinguished the foam within 3-6 seconds, and this effect persisted during the day 2 .

Simethicone is an inert polymer of methylsiloxane that is resistant to the action of digestive enzymes and other chemical compounds present in the intestines. It acts only in the gastrointestinal tract, is not absorbed internally and due to this property does not affect the work of other body systems 2.3 .

Motelegaz® Forte (Simethicone) has very few side effects 1.2 .

  • Very rarely, it can induce vomiting 2 .Its appearance is an indication for going to a doctor 3 .
  • Allergic reactions are sometimes possible: rash, angioedema 2.3 . Therefore, Motelegaz® Forte is contraindicated in case of hypersensitivity to simethicone and other components of the drug 2 .

Motelegaz® Forte is not recommended for use in children and is approved for use only from the age of 18 2 .

With regard to pregnant women : use is not recommended, but possible if the intended benefit of therapy to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus 2.3 .There are no data on the excretion of simethicone in breast milk.

How many capsules can you take per day

Motelegaz® Forte is recommended to take 1 capsule 3 times a day 2 .

Contraindications for taking Motelegaz® Forte are only hypersensitivity to the components of the drug and conditions in which the natural process of removing gases from the intestine is hampered: intestinal obstruction and other obstructive diseases of the gastrointestinal tract 2.3 .

90,000 Bloating – how to get rid of, causes, medications

Bloating or flatulence is a widespread condition.It occurs when there is an increased accumulation of gases in the gastrointestinal tract and causes an unpleasant feeling of fullness. What are the causes of bloating?

What causes increased gassing

A healthy person normally contains about 200 ml of gases in the intestines.

Their sources are:

  • air that enters the stomach with food;
  • 90,025 gases produced in the intestine by bacteria;

    90,025 gases that come from the blood.

Moderate gassing is normal.

Most of them are excreted during bowel movements or may be passed separately. But when intestinal motility is impaired, fermentation occurs, as a result of which gases are formed in excess volume.

Bloating and gas in adults can cause:

  • unbalanced nutrition;
  • 90,025 gastrointestinal diseases;

  • circulatory disorders;
  • psycho-emotional overload.

Bloating in a child may occur due to imperfection of the enzyme system or its functional disorders. Bloating in women is often provoked by gynecological diseases, hormonal changes during menopause or pregnancy.

A minor symptom such as gas production may indicate a serious problem in the body.

Manifestations of flatulence

Symptoms of bloating appear:

  • with a feeling of fullness;
  • cramping pain;
  • 90,025 nausea;

    90,025 belching;

    90,025 decreased appetite;

  • diarrhea or constipation.

Sometimes extraintestinal symptoms appear: heart rhythm disturbances, decreased mood, sleep disturbances.

How to treat

Treatment of bloating is necessary if increased gas production has become a habitual condition. First, you need to undergo an examination to establish the cause. And then the doctor will prescribe the necessary drugs for the treatment of the underlying pathology and the elimination of flatulence.

The following medicines for bloating may be used:

  • antispasmodics – to normalize bowel tone, relieve pain and reduce bloating;
  • sorbents – stop fermentation by absorbing irritating substances;
  • Probiotics – Essential to improve the digestive process and prevent fermentation.

Power supply correction is also required. A bloating diet excludes foods that increase gas formation and drinks that cause a fermentation reaction (beer, carbonated water, kvass).

But, if the examination did not reveal any serious diseases and treatment is not required, use alternative methods to remove bloating.

Treatment is based on the underlying cause.

Traditional medicine

How to quickly get rid of bloating in adults? Can be used:

  1. Ginger Tea – Ginger enhances salivation and increases bile production, which has a positive effect on digestion.The substances contained in the plant have an antispasmodic effect and reduce gas formation.
  2. Fennel seeds – essential oils and a number of other components in their composition stimulate the formation of bile and promote the movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract. To relieve discomfort, you can prepare a decoction or chew the seeds after eating.
  3. Apple Cider Vinegar – Contains probiotics. Their purpose is to improve digestion, reduce bloating and prevent further gas build-up.To relieve symptoms, drink a drink consisting of a glass of water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar.
  4. Chamomile tea – the substances contained in the plant have antimicrobial properties and successfully fight inflammatory processes. Medicinal tea is used to normalize the digestive tract, get rid of the unpleasant sensations of overeating and colic.

If the cause of gas formation is not eliminated, then any treatment will be only symptomatic and can hide the disease.

How to quickly get rid of bloating with pills? One of the most harmless remedies that can be used without a doctor’s prescription is activated charcoal. Due to its good porosity, coal quickly absorbs toxins and relieves flatulence. It can be used for both treatment and prophylactic purposes.

Prevention

Compliance with these recommendations will help prevent flatulence and significantly reduce the number of its relapses.

Prevention of bloating includes:

  • Reducing the portion size and increasing the number of meals – this will make it easier for the digestive system to cope with its functions;
  • 90 025 refusal from lollipops, chewing gums and drinking drinks through a straw – this will prevent the ingestion of excess air, which causes flatulence;

  • A calm environment during meals reduces the risk of developing various diseases;
  • 90 025 smoking cessation, which contributes to the ingestion of excess air.

Also, do not forget to move a lot. Physical activity relieves gas from the digestive tract and improves overall health.

TOP-12 best remedies for bloating (flatulence) 2021: Rating

How to choose a remedy for bloating

In order to get rid of digestive problems, you must first establish nutrition, but this process takes time.As an “ambulance” for bloating and flatulence, you can take special medications. We tell you what to look for when buying the optimal remedy for the rapid reduction of symptoms of flatulence:

  • Associated symptoms. If, in addition to bloating and flatulence, nothing bothers you, then prokinetics are suitable – they normalize muscle contractions in the intestines and contribute to the rapid elimination of gas. If there is pain, then it will be enough to take an antispasmodic – it relieves spasm and accelerates the advance of gases.In case of poisoning, you need to take an enterosorbent – it absorbs toxins and removes them from the body. And if you just overeat, you can take an enzyme preparation that speeds up digestion, and a prokinetic for quick emptying of the stomach and intestines.
  • Frequency of occurrence. If bloating occurs once, then it is enough to take the above drugs. If this periodically occurs for a long time and does not bring severe inconvenience, then probiotics can be taken in a course – perhaps the matter is in the disturbed intestinal microflora.And if you are worried about constant bloating and gas for no apparent reason, then you must definitely consult a doctor and not self-medicate.
  • Allergy tendency. Despite the safety of most drugs for bloating in the abdomen and intestines, allergies can occur to any component – it’s all about the individual’s predisposition to allergic reactions. If you know that you are allergic to any substance, then drugs with this component should be avoided or combined with antihistamines (antiallergic) drugs.

Despite the fact that the list of the best remedies for bloating (flatulence) includes some of the best drugs for digestive problems, they are only suitable for emergency help. If these symptoms occur too often or worsen, it is necessary to consult a specialist for an accurate diagnosis and optimal treatment.

Espumisan ® – Remedy for bloating, pain after eating, flatulence

Medical literature dryly characterizes flatulence,
as “the increased content of gases in the intestine and related clinical
disorders”.*

But behind the meager lines of reference books and encyclopedias lies a lot of serious
human suffering. With this “shameful” problem they rarely go to the doctor,
trying to cope with abdominal pain, rumbling and involuntary emission
bad smelling gases (flatulence) on their own. But very few people succeed,
after all, flatulence, like most diseases, requires a special approach.

Flatulence: Synopsis

Gases in the gastrointestinal tract cannot be
in a free state, they mix with the liquid content and are presented in
in the form of small bubbles, each of which is surrounded by mucus.When gases
becomes too much, thick foam begins to expand the intestines and interfere with it
reductions. This is accompanied by a rumbling in the abdomen and pain.
(colic).

Also, with flatulence, there may be “extraintestinal” symptoms. Bloated
the intestine “presses” from below on the diaphragm, and a person may be bothered by pain in the area
heart, “interruptions” of the heart rate, general weakness. In such a situation, a person
trying to adapt to gas overflow: looking for a comfortable position, trying
undo the button on the trousers or loosen the belt.

Depending on the cause, flatulence is divided into:

  • alimentary, arising from excessive consumption of products,
    causing increased gas formation in the intestines (fruits, some vegetables,
    black bread, beer, carbonated drinks, etc.)
  • digestive, associated with impaired digestion. Classic
    an example of digestive flatulence is lactase deficiency.IN
    the intestines of most adults, the amount of an enzyme that digests
    milk sugar (lactose), reduced. Therefore, when consuming a large amount
    milk and dairy products may experience abdominal pain and flatulence
  • dysbiotic, developing due to a violation of the composition of the intestinal microflora.
    In the intestine, fermentation processes are activated, and a large amount of
    gases. This flatulence often accompanies gastroenterological diseases.
    (gastritis, gastroduodenitis, pancreatitis, gallstone disease, etc.)etc.)
  • dynamic, arising in violation of intestinal peristalsis. Intestines
    decreases slowly and poorly, gases accumulate. This condition often occurs
    after abdominal surgery
  • psychogenic, in which bowel function is disturbed by stress
    or psycho-emotional stress. This situation is typical for people with
    irritable bowel syndrome
  • high-altitude, appearing due to a decrease in atmospheric pressure when climbing to
    height.As a result, the gases expand and, their relative pressure
    increases. A common cause of flatulence is aerophagia – swallowing
    excess air while eating. Aerophagy provoked by conversations
    or smoking while eating, chewing gum, wearing removable dentures

Life and flatulence: treatment is indispensable!

As can be seen from the above, flatulence can
occur in a variety of situations.And what if:

  • Did the excitement before the first date provoke an attack of flatulence? Hardly
    the chosen one (itza) will be delighted if their new partner frowns painfully,
    rubbing your stomach, and gas. Such a date can be counted in advance.
    failed! But it can still be dispensed with if you take the drug as early as possible

    which can help deal with the delicate problem of flatulence. Date
    will be saved, and who knows, maybe it will radically change your
    a life?
  • There was a party yesterday, with a lot of beer, pizza and chips, and today
    do I have to go take a test or even an exam ?! Even excellent knowledge will not save you from
    a decrease in the grade by a disgruntled teacher forced to listen to a loud rumbling
    and inhale the unpleasant smell of gases from the hapless student.If you have time to accept
    Espumisan ® ,
    then the problem with flatulence may stop worrying, which is important for
    concentration on the exam.
  • The flatulence accompanying chronic gastritis broke out right in front of an important
    interview? The stomach “twists” and diligent, albeit useless, attempts
    restrain rumbling and “gurgling” in the stomach, will not allow you to focus on questions
    potential employer. As a result, he will have the most
    an unfavorable opinion of a potential employee, and you will not have a second
    a chance to make a good impression.It can help to fix the situation
    timely intake of the drug
    Espumisan ® .
  • There is a long flight and you are afraid of colic and bloating right in
    flying? Or, which is not much better, active flatulence (gas emission) in
    crowded salon? Precious vacation days will be darkened as you sit in
    hotel room and waiting for the end of the “hurricane” in your stomach? Don’t forget to take with
    Add your first aid kit to Espumisan ® ! It can help to cope with the “high-rise”

90,000 Constipation and flatulence during pregnancy – Useful articles

Causes of flatulence

Progesterone production increases in pregnant women.This hormone is responsible for relaxing the uterus, but it also affects the muscular wall of the digestive tract. In addition, the work of the intestines and stomach slows down, and gases begin to accumulate. Sometimes the onset of pregnancy is determined by bloating.

How to treat

In an acute situation, consult a specialist. Flatulence itself is not dangerous, but pulling pains accompanying bloating can interfere with the normal course of pregnancy.

Of course, all the means used to eliminate discomfort must be harmless not only to the mother, but also to the fetus.

In normal situations, diets are used. Firstly, foods that lead to increased gas production are excluded from the diet, and secondly, food is taken often, but in small portions. It is important to chew food thoroughly so that air does not enter the esophagus.

Foods to be excluded include eggplant, peppers, apples, apricots, plums, cherries, beans, beans, peas, lentils, peanuts, sodas, fatty meats, milk and kefir.

Among the folk remedies that help against flatulence are decoctions of chamomile, mint, dill seeds, ginger tea.Also shown is a light massage of the abdomen with circular stroking movements.

Causes of constipation

As we already know, progesterone is partly to blame. In addition, pregnant women are not very active. Constipation can also be caused by stress, anal diseases and lack of fluid. Regular constipation is dangerous for miscarriage.
