Gas/ Flatulence

Symptoms of Gas/ Flatulence

Some symptoms of flatulence include bloating and discomfort, excessive passing of wind, belching, rumblings in the lower abdomen, pain in the abdomen, loud flatus, and smelly flatus.

Preventing Halitosis/Bad Breath

As mentioned earlier, flatulence occurs naturally as a result of the normal digestive process of the body. It is not possible to completely avoid passing abdominal gas, but the following tips may help to reduce flatulence:

Do not eat food too quickly and properly chew food.
Avoid overeating because intestinal gas is expelled to create space for extra food in the stomach.
Avoid smoking and chewing gum because these actions cause an increase in saliva production, which in turn causes air to be swallowed.
Avoid foods that cause flatulence.
Minimize the intake of carbonated beverages, beer, coffee, and red wine.
Reduce the intake of dairy products if lactose intolerance is the culprit.
Stay physically active because it will regularize bowel movements.
