What are Gases?
Gas and stools are a normal output of the foods one eats. The usual process of
ventilation of gas is either through the mouth (burping) or through the anus
(flatulence). People fart about 20 times a day, which is quite normal and
common, however sometimes it can also be painful and embarrassing. Gas
happens when one swallows air or when the bacteria in the large intestine help
digest the food. When the undigested food moves from the small intestine to
the large intestine. the bacteria works on it making hydrogen, carbon dioxide,
and methane, which then leave body through flatulence. In addition to burping
and flatulence, one may also feel bloated and have pain in belly. That pain
rarely can also be mistaken for a heart attack or appendicitis. Many other times,
all these symptoms can also be a sign of associated disease like ulcers or
gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer,
Crohn's disease, or hernia.
Sometimes, it purely depends on the individual constitution and make-up of the body, as not everyone will get gas from the same foods. Hence, many people get gas by eating carbohydrate, found in foods like beans, dairy products, whole-grain foods, potatoes, soft drinks, fruit drinks, fermented products etc. The best way to prevent gases then is to consume such foods less. Daily, meaningful, and simple changes in eating habits can help to cure and prevent flatulence. Eating foods containing prebiotics and probiotics may be useful additions to your diet. A healthy balanced diet high in fibre can aid efficient digestion and, as a result, reduce flatulence. Eat meals slowly and chew each mouthful thoroughly. Drink soothing herbal teas, such as peppermint, ginger or chamomile.
