Natural Ways To Reduce Flatulence

by Clifford Ramos

A flatulence problem can be embarrassing. While you can take flatulence medication, there are several ways in which you can control flatulence naturally. Fortunately, these are not too expensive and are also easy to use.

Herbal Tea

Herbal teas work by reducing the amount of gas that your stomach produces inside the digestive tract. Once the amount of gas in the digestive tract is reduced, the amount of wind that you pass will decrease dramatically. If you suspect that you are passing wind in your sleep, you can drink the tea before bedtime. If you like to drink coffee, it is best to replace that habit by drinking herbal teas. Many teas contain just as much caffeine as coffee, so it should be easy to make the switch.

Here is a recipe for an herbal tea that is easy to make.

Use one ounce of each of the following:

  1. Chamomile
  2. Peppermint leaves
  3. Caraway seeds
  4. Fennel seeds

Crush the caraway seeds and fennel seeds in a bowl. Add the chamomile and peppermint leaves to a pot of boiling water. Then, add the crushed caraway seeds and the fennel seeds. Allow it to steep for ten minutes and then strain off the mixture with a sieve or a soft cloth and sweeten to taste.

Add Seeds To Your Diet

Flaxseed tastes great and is packed with omega-3 fats as well as fiber. This makes it perfect for helping with the reduction of gas in the digestive tract. There are two ways you can purchase flaxseed. You can buy ground or unground flaxseed and crush it yourself. You do not have to eat flaxseed by itself if you don't want to. You can add flaxseed to salads, soups, cereals, or smoothies. Start out by eating about one teaspoon of flaxseed a day and increase how much you eat from there to adjust your digestive tract to it. Make sure you also drink plenty of water while incorporating flaxseed into your diet. Water will aid digestion and help you to achieve maximum results.

An alternative to flaxseed is chia seeds, which are also high in omega 3 fatty acids. They aid in digestion and prevent flatulence. You can add chia seeds to your drinks and smoothies as well as your meals just as you would flaxseed.

When you consistently apply the solutions to flatulence given above you will significantly reduce the amount of wind that you pass.


About Me

Powerful Physical Therapy

I was badly injured a year ago, and it took a long time to get back to my normal level of ability. One of the things that helped more than anything was the time that I spent in physical therapy. I didn’t always love going to physical therapy – in fact, sometimes, I really didn’t enjoy it at all. But ultimately, the therapists and other patients I worked with helped inspire me to get better, and the exercises facilitated my healing process. I started this blog to talk about all of the things I learned about physical therapy and healing during my recovery time. I hope my blog reaches other accident victims. I want to offer encouragement, hope, and information for people who are in the same boat that I was in.
