I used to have extreme flatulence and Coconut oil cured me. I've tried everything from Beno to "Mia Sposa es Loca" Oil and nothing has ever stopped my flatulence like Coconut oil. I'm a believer! I've also noticed that I no longer have the need to wear my Depend's Adult Diapers anymore. Thanks coconut oil you saved my marriage!

I have tried a lot of the remedies listed here for my gas problem. Even over the counter remedies. Nothing helped. I had cancer and received 5 weeks of radiation in the pelvic area. The side effect is now I have uncontrollable gas. Also when I eat, need to use the restroom very soon after eating. Have had accidents while out shopping. I believe radiation weakened that pelvic area. Am now cancer free! But my gas problem is so embarrasing. The apartment complex where I live I have heard comments made about me re my gas. So humiliating. Then I tried 1 tablespoon per day of coconut oil. Also bought fresh strawberries and eat 5 per day. My gas problem has improved 90 percent. And this is day two. Am hoping that just strawberries alone with cure my problem. A tablespoon of coconut oil is about 110 calories. Irregardless, I will take these two cures if need be. Finally found somthing to help.

We are of Arab descent. Today I had very gas pains and I asked my mother what to do. I usually drink anise tea to relieve pain but since it was much more acute this time I asked her if there was another treatment. She told me to put some cumin in my tea and drink it. It worked! She was surprised I didn't know this and told me how everyone uses it as a reliable cure. I don't mind the taste and drank about half a teaspoon of cumin powder in my green tea. Feel better already!

If you stomach is distended after foods, you probably suffer from flatulence, it means you have excessive of stomach gas. One of the causes of flatulence is because you eat too much foodstuffs that cause stomach gas.
Here are the list of foods that give flatulence:
- fruits such as melon, honey dews, pear.
- Cabbage, brocolli, cauliflower
- Fatty food
- Gassy drink
Do any of these foods give you stomach gas and flatulence?

I used to eat a high fiber,low fat diet (norm robillard's low carb approach). The gas started to build over several months resulting in terrible stomach pains after every evening meal. My cholesterol shot up as well. I decided to get rid of the high fiber breads and cereals. I don't eat dairy. After a few days, my gas decreased and I didn't need my aciphex for gerd anymore. When I cheat, I get gas and reflux. Also, my cholesterol dropped back to normal. My diet is vegetables, some protein, small amounts of fruit, some nuts. I walk almost everyday and use a recumbant bike on rainy days. Sugar in any form is the worst High carbs are sugar. Bread in any form makes my reflux worse. I can cheat but not everyday. I was able to take my bed off its blocks back to ground level and could also lay down after eating.

The best remedy I have found for indigestion, acid regurge, GERD, flatulence is elimination of all bleached flour products in the foods you eat - I find I can eat l00% whole grain bread without problems (usually cures most people's constipation problems also). I don't know what chemicals? are used in the bleaching process, but apparently that is where the problem comes from. However, you must really work at getting bleached flour out of your diet, as many pastas are made with bleached flour, many breads say whole wheat but read the ingredients and you'll find that most start off with bleached flour unless the label reads l00% whole grain. Most gravies, dips, sauces, etc. use the cheapest source of thickening agent - bleached flour. So try it and see if it works for you. It's nice having a "cast iron stomach" which has no problems with cayenne pepper, jalapeno peppers, and all that spicy stuff I used to blame my stomach problems on before I lucked up and stumbled upon the real cause of them.

I've got a serious gas pocket under my shoulder bone. I think the cause is derived from an h-pylori infection or i maybe associated with my years of acid reflux problem. Since recently i notice that whenever i drink Monster energy drink i feel completely relieved. I can not completely what happens when I drink it, but I burp non-stop until all gas sensation is gone. The feelin of acid reflux immediately stops and I feel revived. I have tried many different carbonated beverages including ginger ail beverage with is known to give this reaction, they just don't match up to the energy drink. It completely relieves my gas or upset stomach.

Last night, my brother cooked for me. I drank a little bit of ACV afterwards because I could feel my stomach going funny. Unfortunately, the ACV did not prevent gas. I have no idea what in the meal caused it, but it was quite literally painful. I tried to sleep about an hour after eating and I couldn't because I kept having horrible pains.
Fennel tea, HALLELUJAH!
I just pounded about a teaspoon of the seeds in my morter & pestle, put that into a tea and and poured over freshly boiled water. I also added a tiny tiny bit of honey for sweetness. This actually tasted pretty good, and I could not believe what an immediate affect it had!
I paced my room while drinking it, and while I burped once (the gas was still early in the digestive system), I don't think that got rid of it all. So, I would say that somehow the fennel neutralized the gas. I don't know how it worked, but I had been trying to sleep for like an hour, then after drinking this, managed to fall asleep within about 15 minutes.
I am sooooooooooo thankful. I did wake up later, but when I woke up, I had no pain whatsoever.
My point is, I definitely recommend this!!!

Thanks so much to the person who recommended fennel seeds! I tried fennel seed tea because I thought it might work faster than the capsules and it has worked every morning I tried it for over a week now after drinking my two glasses of soy milk which usually give me terrible gas. The taste is great with about 3/4ths of a tsp. of agave syrup. Hope this helps. Sincerely, Angie

I use Fennel Seed for gas. I'm lactose intolerant so after eating ice cream or the likes I pop a fennel seed capsule & it stops the gas. You can also purchase the seeds instead of the capsules. They taste like black licorice which isn't my favorite so I bought the capsules. Fennel seeds are commonly used in India to freshen breath & aid in digestion.

Fenugreek's leafy form belongs to the spinach family. However, its seeds are useful when cooking to combat the flatulence caused by certain foods, such as lentils and cauliflower. Its anti-viral properties mean it also helps against sore throat and mouth ulcers. Historically, fenugreek has been used to treat diabetes and is now thought to reduce blood pressure.

Hi, I have found a great gas/bloating remedy. If you put a capsule of golden seal in an enema bag with warm (purified) water, it makes the best enema. At least for me, it makes me go and go until I am completely clean and fresh. I like it much better than coffee, and it really clears my head. I feel like it gives the digestive tract a fresh start and cleanses my blood. This is also a great way to move out hardened waste and therefore lose some excess weight. It also seems to cure constipation which I used to get, but now is very rare, which usually comes on from eating something bad. I just do another enema! Also I do one whenever I feel like I am starting to get sick and if I do it early enough it just goes away. In fact I haven't taken a sick day in over 4 years! It only takes a few minutes to do and then I just jump in the shower. All the benefits of golden seal in a powerful and quicker way.

Gripe Water was immediate relief for chronic belching/gas. I saw that reference in your 'remedies'. I put three droppers' full into any beverage after I've eaten anything. Thank you to the person(s) who recommended this. I found it in Walgreen's baby aisle.

To people who are troubled with flatulence (gas) you may find ginger easier to find than fenugreek seeds -just add 1/4 tsp. of ground ginger to your pot of beans, cabbage,etc. -changes taste little or none.

Miso Soup is excellent for Flatulence and expelling gas. Try my recipe here: http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/healthy-recipes.html#IJ
Even, if you can't make the above recipe.
In a glass of warm water, mix 1 tsp on Red Miso. Let the miso mix well. Drink this soup, you will see the gas being expelled in 1 hour and make your stomach light and flat.
Personally, I do this
