Home Remedies for Gas Problem

A gassy stomach can be very embarrassing. It is actually quite a painful experience often leading to stomach cramps, bloating heaviness and heartburn. Medically known as flatulence, it is a condition where excess gas gets collected in your digestive tract.

Gas can collect in your digestive system while eating or drinking, you swallow the air that causes the oxygen and nitrogen to enter your body. The second and more important reason is when you digest your food; gases like hydrogen, methane or carbon dioxide are emitted and get accumulated in your stomach. If not released or in excess, these gases can cause a lot of discomfort.

High carb foods like beans, cabbage, chickpeas, and lentils or sugary fruit juices are not easily digested by the stomach. They pass through the colon which contains a lot of bacteria that help in breaking down the food while releasing gases that can accumulate and make you feel uneasy.

Ginger / అల్లం

One teaspoon of fresh ginger and have it with one teaspoon of lime juice after your meals. Drinking ginger tea is also an effective remedy for gas relief. Ginger acts as a natural carminative (agents that relieve flatulence).

Ajwain / వాము (Carom Seeds)

Carom seeds contain a compound called thymol which secretes gastric juices that help in digestion. You can have about half a teaspoon of carom seeds with water once a day to feel better.

 Jeera Water / జీరా నీళ్లు

Drinking jeera water is a great natural remedy to curb gas. Jeera or cumin contains essential oils that stimulate the salivary glands which helps in better digestion of food and prevents the formation of excess gas.  Take a tablespoon of cumin seeds and boil it in two cups of water for 10-15 minutes. Let it cool down, strain and drink the water after having your meals.

Lime juice with baking powder / నిమ్మ రసం మరియు బేకింగ్ పౌడర్

To reduce excess gas is to stir 1 teaspoon of lime juice and half teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water. Drink this after your meals as it helps in forming carbon di oxide which facilitates the digestion process.
