Fennel seeds can give you relief from other indigestion symptoms like gas and bloating, too. •Add one teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds to a cup of hot water and let it steep for eight to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, allow it to cool and strain it. Add a little honey and drink it slowly. Also take Colocynth 30 - one dose for pain when required.

Motion habit is totally individualised. One can pass more than one motion per day. It is perfectly normal if the consistency is normal. Take minimum 3 ltrs of water, add green leafy vegetable in your diet, walk 5-6km per day.

Ibs is due to alteration in neurological and gut co ordination. Ibs before being pronounced to a patient needs to be diagnosed correctly because there are many colonic diseases which mimics ibs. But once diagnosed, one need to be calm, stress free, change unhealthy to healthy lifestyle, avoid food which causes diarrhea/ constipation and be on supportive medications prescribed by clinician. One also need to have a follow up.

Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

Almost all of us have experienced bloating, gas or an upset stomach. Yet some people experience this problem at a chronic level. Gas occurs in the stomach and intestines due to breakdown of food into energy. All of us pass gas, however some people do more than others. An average person passes gas 5-20 times a day.

An upset stomach can often cause problems and can be a difficult battle for many people. Although the symptoms of gas problems often relate to an improper diet, yet other factors may be also responsible.

Causes and Symptoms of Gas Problems

  1. Swallowing air: The swallowed air which is not burped out, passes through the digestive system and is released through the opening of the anus. Hiccups can also occur if you have swallowed excessive air.
  2. Diet: The reaction of different foods varies from one person to another. Also foods that lead to odorous gas may also vary from person to person. Yet, spicy foods and dairy products are the most common causes of gas. Example - Beans, cabbage, onions, radishes, eggs, carbonated drinks, sugar, packaged foods etc.
  3. Medications: Certain medicines and supplements, including prescription drugs, can lead to gas problems and bloating. Further, medications which change the hormonal balance in the body can also cause bloating.
  4. Medical problems: Certain medical conditions such as Irritable bowel syndrome or bowel obstruction can also lead to an upset stomach.

Common symptoms of gas problems include gas pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. In the worst of cases, gas and bloating indicate colon cancer. Such people experience rapid weight loss, anaemia and blood in stools.

Treatment
Modifying your lifestyle, in particular your dietary practices, is essential to a healthy recovery.

  • Avoiding foods such as spaghetti, oats, bran, barley, banana, bread etc. which contain high fibre content is important.
  • You can opt for over the counter medications after consulting your physician. Homeopathy and Ayurveda can be also opted as alternative forms of treatment.

Hi Mukesh, I terms of Ayurveda, your Pitta is too high ...that it tries to digest your food too fast and make your feel hungry. Keep it balance by adding some more soothing food in your diet. Like: Take a spoon of Fennel seeds ( saunf) after meals. Have, Badam/ sesame milk, Fresh coconut giri , soaked walnuts/ raisins/ dates ( consume them after 1.5 hr of your meals or in mid- morning/ evening snacks) Avoid tea ,coffee and spicy food ( anything that carries hot properties)

Hi, Inadequate sleep, untimely intake of food, intake of very hot and spicy food, mental worries and tensions, excessive usage of pain killers and antibiotics are all causes of acidity. Please follow these tips apart from taking medicines to avoid recurrence: - Do not keep your stomach empty for long durations, - Eat in small quantities frequently. - Avoid hot, spicy and oil fried food - Drink plenty of water in between your intake. - Keep away from mental stress and tensions, - Perform physical exercises daily and meditation helps to relieve mental stress and tensions. - Consume lot of fibre like raw vegetables, oats, fruits, sprouts, etc - Avoid excess intake of coffee or tea , intake of medicines on empty stomach. - Be careful about the food while eating outside. - Carry a small pack of biscuit or some fruits along with you for emergency. - Whenever you suffer from acidity, take the medications prescribed by the doctor for 2-3 weeks continuously until the wounds in the stomach gets healed completely. - Sleep at least for 8 hours a day. - Restrict the usage of pain killers and antibiotics frequently.

Panic and anxiety disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of the right medications along with relaxation and behaviour therapy. Medical causes of such panic episodes also have to be investigated in detail to form the most appropriate management plan. Consult a good psychiatrist in your city with details of your complaints.

It may gas-distention trouble due to indigestion. Have simple bland food (Khichadi) for next few days avoiding junk, oily, spicy fried and deep-fried food items. Drink lot of water. Add Jeera, Ajwain, Sonth in your food items – these herbs prevent gas formation. Reduce intake of tea – coffee. Instead you can have green tea. Do not lye-down or sit immediately after having meals. Have a walk instead. Maintain good bowel habits. Have more of Coconut Water, Gulkand etc to relieve acidity, Avoid too much of Cauliflower, Peas, Brinjals, Namkeens as snacks etc. Do regular walking and mild exercises. You may also do a weekly fast – just to relax and calm down your system. Fasting also helps in cleansing of the system.
