Find a Natural Cure for Gas Pains
Passing gas, or flatus, can be embarrassing, but the average person passes gas ten times a day. Gas pain is associated with constipation, diarrhea, and usually occur if gas builds up in the intestines but is unable to be expelled. If you're experiencing gas pain, many actions can be taken to decrease the amount of gas produced to reduce discomfort or any pain.
Bacterial in the large intestine and colon ferment carbohydrates that aren't digested in the small intestine. While the common causes of gas can be from drinking carbonated beverages and swallowing air, high-fiber foods are the greatest contributors to gas. Fiber is important to maintaining a healthy digestive track, but will also cause gas. Artificial additives or sweeteners like sorbitol and mannitol can lead to gas and diarrhea, antibiotics can disrupt the environment of the intestines and affect gas, and in some cases health conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease can cause gas and gas pains.

[YEA] I had horrible gas too for the longest time (since I got married 2 years ago). I do think it was partly because of birth control pills but I took acidophilis and I'm not smelling horrible any more!!
