Home Remedies for Gas / Flatulence

Home_Remedies_for_Gas_Flatulence

Gas or flatulence is a common part of our daily metabolism. Passing gas through anus is as important as passing stools regularly.

All the people pass approximately 10- 14 times of gas per day. So, no one escapes this embarrassing reality. Gas that is non –smelly and passed at regular intervals without any bloating is absolutely normal.

But when due to any reason the amount of gas produced increases and it is also accompanied by severe bloating of abdomen, burping and stinky smell, something needs to be done.

The cause of smell is the presence of sulfur compounds in the air expelled that are produced as a result of the fermentation of the undigested food that is accumulating in the intestines.

It may be a result of over eating or a faulty metabolism. In either case, strict measures need to be taken to avoid similar embarrassing situations in the future.

Here we bring to you quick home remedies to relieve bloating of the abdomen.

REMEDY 1 – FENNEL SEEDS

Take 1 -2 teaspoon full of fennel seeds and consume them after meals. It is a great digestive and helps to relieve the bad smell of the fart. It can secondarily work as an ideal mouth freshener.

You can alternatively soak them in your normal drinking water. Consume this water daily instead of the normal plain water to get long lasting results.

REMEDY 2 – THYME SEEDS

Take 2 – 3 g of thyme seeds and consume with water. Take this two to three times per day, preferably half an hour after meals.

This is a sure shot way to neutralize the excess vata in the intestines.

REMEDY 3 – YOGHURT

Yoghurt is a very effective herbal remedy for all kinds of digestive problems. It is a natural probiotic that replenishes the intestinal flora which is responsible for maintaining a healthy digestion.

Yoghurt can be consumed as a part of the daily meal. Be cautious to use yoghurt preferably in breakfast or lunch hours only. Consuming yoghurt or its products at night can cause worsening of symptoms, and water retention in the body.

REMEDY 4 – BUTTERMILK

This is another delicious home remedy that you can try at home to relieve bloating.

Take a glass of fresh buttermilk, which has a sweet taste and is not too sour. Mix a pinch of salt and even smaller amounts of Asafetida + caraway seeds to the glass and drink at least 2 – 3 times per day.

This is a great digestive drink which not only improves the digestion but also helps to effectively reduce flatulence.

REMEDY 5 – GINGER AND BLACK PEPPER

Take equal amounts of dried ginger powder, black pepper and rock salt and mix well. Consume this mixture, two – three times per day, preferable before meals.

Ginger and black pepper are both great at improving the digestion and reducing gas and flatulence.

REMEDY 6 – ONION AND TURMERIC

Take 2 -3 table spoon full of fresh onion juice and mix it with a pinch of turmeric. This should be consumed on an empty stomach.

Make sure that there is a gap of at least half an hour between the juice and meals.

Turmeric and onion both fight the fermenting toxins and neutralize them to prevent the formation of excessive gas in the large intestines that results in flatulence.

REMEDY 7 –PAWAN MUKTA AASANA

Lie down straight on a yoga mat spread evenly on the floor. Lift your legs and fold them to bring them close to your stomach and abdomen.

Regular practice of this asana helps to relieve the excess gas accumulated in the stomach on a daily basis.

REMEDY 8 – CINNAMON
