Gas-x makes you fart
      #315717 - 09/28/07 06:54 PM

I couldn't understand why I take gas-x when I get gassy and it doesn't stop after I take it, I fart even more. And then I read something on the internet that says: "Gas-X Extra Strength is an antiflatulent. It works by helping the formation of larger gas bubbles, which frees gas and makes it easier to eliminate by belching or passing rectally." So that means that when you take gas-x, it will be easier for you to fart. Then the question is, is there anything we can eat or take that will prevent gas?

Yes! High volatile oil Fennel Tummy Tea will prevent AND relieve gas and bloating.

Hello,

I find that when I cut down on sugar (all forms) my gas is dramatically reduced. When I use stevia in my tea and eliminate other sugar foods (fruit, candy, sweet cereals, etc) then I have a flat stomach! I have recently increased my protein foods by having more lean chicken and turkey, and that also has helped. I use Gas-X too, but I don't know if it helps.

Yes, Gas-X does the same to me too. I guess that's the ida. It always feels like it is taking all the "little gas bubbles" in my belly, combining them into "big bubbles"...and then releasing them through the bottom! It's not pleasant but it always makes me feel much better once they are out. Try fennel seed capsules and gas-stop by renewlife as preventative. They help but nothing seems to work wonders. Feel better.

Gas Preventative new
      #315962 - 10/02/07 11:30 AM

I recently started on Questran which had horrible gas and bloating side effects. I discovered after several horrible days, that if I took the Gas Stop or drank the fennel tea before or at the same time, it would prevent most of the gas from even forming. It helps you get rid of it if it's already in your system. However, definitely try Gas Stop and the fennel tea if you haven't already.

Thanks. I looked up Gas Stop and noticed that it has several of the same ingredients as Beano that I'm allergic to. I am broken out in rash right now from Beano.

Some tips that helped me new
      #315972 - 10/02/07 01:36 PM

An article I read recently related to snacking and ibs. It said that snacking is contrary to what humans are meant to do and that the cleansing action of the gut works properly only when the stomach is empty. The article specified no more than three meals a day and nothing but water in between.

I have mostly eliminated snacking for a few months and it has REALLY helped with gas and bloating. When I cheat the symptom returns immediately. Yesterday, for instance, I had some soy yogurt a couple hours after lunch. That gave me gas for the entire evening.

Another tip: a naturopath told me once that taking liquids with meals dilutes digestive enzymes and promotes poor digestion. He tells ALL his patients to take no liquids for ten minutes before or two hours after a meal. This is a difficult one to follow. I don't apply it strictly, but I do avoid large quantities of liquid before, during or in the hour immediately following a meal. It seems to help also. (Ideally I take Heather's fiber in water ten minutes before each meal. Teas and water I take upon rising or between meals, meaning two hours after a meal.)

It's imperative to eliminate ALL trigger foods. For me that means eliminating dairy, wheat and corn and limiting soy. Soy I can eat in small quantities with a meal with no problem.

That really sucks big time. Have you tried the fennel tea? I hate tea and never drank it before. But I tolerate the fennel tea (with honey) to avoid the alternative.

You drink the fennel tea before you eat? I thought it was supposed to be done afterwards and that it didn't work as a preventative, only as a way to release the gas? Have I been doing this wrong all along?

I hope it helps you as it did me, Sarah. I've found that if I am going to cheat on this rule it is best not to do so after dinner. Snacking during the day can give me gas, but snacking at night can lead to worse symptoms in the morning: pain, increased gas and bloating and/or nausea. I think of the intervals between meals as mini-fasts allowing my gut to rest, followed by a longer fast at night. I also sleep better when most of the work of digestion is finished before I put my head on the pillow.
