The Gas Problem

homeopathic remedies for gas  Is Too Much Flatulence  Bothering You? Although having gas is common, it can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing at times. Gas is eliminated either by burping (belching) or passing it through the rectum (flatulence). Half to two liters is produced normally in adults and may pass up to 14 times a day on an average. But the condition can be really bad for some individuals -one study noted a person who expelled gas 140 times daily, with 70 passages in a period of just four hours. Although every one has gas, why do some suffer from it more than others? The answer lies either in the biological conditions of their gastrointestinal tract or in their eating habits. The most effective homeopathic remedies for gas include Carbo Veg, Lycopodium, China, and Nux Vomica.

Gas mainly develops from two sources  –

1. The air that is swallowed in with food while eating.

2. As a part of the normal breakdown of certain undigested foods by harmless bacteria naturally present in the large intestine.

Homeopathic Remedies for Gas and Bloating

Homeopathy can be a great help for those who suffer from this problem of excessive gas. Here are some remedies with their indications:

1. Carbo Veg – Effective Remedy for Gas

Carbo Veg as a natural medicine for excessive gas is suitable for nearly every symptom associated with gas, belching, flatulence, pains and extreme bloating. It is indicated in cases of excessive gas formation and when everything (even the simplest of food) that is eaten seems to get converted into gas. The key indications for using Carbo Veg is gas in the upper abdomen, gas that seems to get worse upon lying down, sour or putrid belching and waterbrash after eating, and complaints of obstructive flatulency (pains around heart, abdomen or anywhere) that are relieved by passing gas.

2. Lycopodium – For Bloating in the Lower Abdomen

Lycopodium is a plant remedy prepared from a plant named club moss. The natural order of this plant is Lycopodiaceae. Lycopodium as a remedy is highly useful in cases of gas where the involvement of the lower abdomen is more pronounced. Stomach feels full and distended soon after eating even a little quantity of food. This is attended with a complaint of a constant feeling of fermentation in the abdomen. Rumbling of gas in the abdomen is also well marked. Noisy flatulence may be passed in most cases. Constrictive or burning pain in the abdomen and excessive gas during the evening are also treated well with Lycopodium. Lycopodium is also effective for gas and bloating in babies with a colicky abdomen.

3. China – For Trapped Gas and Bloating in Abdomen

China is a useful remedy prepared from Peruvian dried bark. It belongs to the family Rubiaceae. China is indicated in cases when there is gas in the entire abdomen, causing excessive bloating. Gas in the abdomen is felt for a long time after meals. Digestion is weak and slow. Flatulent colic or constrictive pain in the abdomen may be present in most cases. Belching of bitter nature or tasting like that of food and vomiting of undigested food are other symptoms indicative of this remedy.

4. Asafoetida – For Bloating with Burping

Asafoetida is very suitable for treating excessive gas in the abdomen accompanied by loud burping. The gas tends to push upwards, and loud burps appear forcibly with difficulty. The burps have a foul smell. A bad taste in the mouth is present, and the abdomen feels full and greatly distended with colic. There appears a sensation as if the abdomen would burst. Gurgling and rolling of flatus is present in the abdomen, and a pulsation may be felt in the pit of the stomach.

5. Raphanus – For Natural Gas Relief

Raphanus is prepared from the fresh root of Black Garden Radish. It belongs to the natural order Cruciferae. Raphanus is prominently indicated for gas that is obstructed in the abdomen. The gas accumulates and is retained in the abdomen. It neither pushes upwards nor downwards. Abdomen gets enlarged, inflated and distended. Griping pain around the navel is felt. Any pressure on the abdomen is unbearable. A burning sensation in the abdomen, stomach pain, and intense nausea may also be present.

Exercise or discharging gas may also ease the colic in some cases. Along with pain, constant rumbling and croaking, and nausea and vomiting may be present.

7. Nux Vomica – Effective Homeopathic Medicine for Gas with Constipation

Nux Vomica is highly beneficial for treating gas trouble with constipation. The abdomen is sensitive to pressure. Bloating is noted a few hours after eating. Loud rumbling and gurgling arise from gas. There is marked constipation even with a frequent ineffectual urge to pass stool. Other symptoms indicative of this remedy include heartburn, sour taste in the mouth, sour belching, sour vomiting. Nux Vomica also suits those who are more affected by the gas problem because of excessive consumption of alcohol and or fatty food.

The Formation of Gas in Our Abdomen

When the digestive system is not able to digest certain carbohydrates (like sugar starches and fiber found in many foods) due to shortage or absence of certain enzymes, these undigested carbohydrates (when they reach large intestines) are broken down by harmless bacteria to produce gas (carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane). This gas formation increases in people who suffer from lactose intolerance (carbohydrate intolerance).

Though the symptoms are usually bloating, abdominal pain, belching, and flatulence, not everyone experiences all of them. The amount of gas produced and the sensitivity of the gastrointestinal tract to the gas determines the kind and the intensity of the symptoms. For example, bloating in the abdomen is not produced by excessive gas, it is usually the result of an intestinal disorder, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The cause of IBS is unknown but may involve abnormal movements and contractions of intestinal muscles and increased pain sensitivity in the intestine. These disorders may give a sensation of bloating because of increased sensitivity to gas.

Managing Problems with Gas

1. Following a simple diet and lifestyle changes can help to reduce gastrointestinal gas and relieve symptoms. These include eating slowly, chewing the food thoroughly, being relaxed while eating and not swallowing excessive air while eating.

2. It is also important to eat food that suits you. Certain foods like beans, vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, fruits, such as apples, and peaches, whole grains, soft drinks, and fruit drink,  milk and milk products, tend to cause gas.

3. Exercising regularly helps improve digestion and it is advisable to walk for 10-15 minutes after consuming a meal.

An Explanation of Fibromyalgia

No clear mechanism explains the cause of fibromyalgia. The most common theory suggests that people who have fibromyalgia are in fact, suffering from some problem with the pain reception. Such people develop an increased sensitivity towards pain. Their body’s tendency to feel pain is higher as compared to others. In other words, we can say that they have low threshold levels to tolerate any painful condition.
The most common factors responsible for this increased sensitivity to pain are serotonin, Substance P (a peptide) and nerve growth factors. In fibromyalgia, there is a low level of serotonin which plays a vital role in inhibiting pain signals. Further, there are high levels of Substance P and nerve growth factor present, which spread the pain signals. All these factors together lead to central sensitization of the brain, causing hypersensitivity to pain and chronic pain. So, the individual suffering with fibromyalgia will experience more pain to the same injury as compared to someone who does not have fibromyalgia.
Due to central sensitization, the patient tends to develop hypersensitivity to touch or to the things which generally do not cause pain. Their brain is in a constant state of high reactivity. That is why they also experience pains, even if touched gently. Because of central sensitization, the pain tends to get worse if the individual is going through some psychological or physical stress like anxiety, depression, injury/trauma or sleeplessness. This central sensitization can develop due to multiple factors in people with fibromyalgia, like after an injury/trauma or surgery, depression, insomnia, and some genetic factors.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Pain is the primary symptom of fibromyalgia. The pain associated with fibromyalgia often is widespread and is described as a constant deep, dull ache. However sometimes throbbing, sharp, shooting, burning pains can also be present. The pain is present in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and around the joints. Exercise tends to worsen the pain. Numbness and tingling sensations and stiffness upon lying in the same position for too long are other symptoms.

A person with fibromyalgia has tender points, which are about nine pairs of specific points in the body which when pressed cause intense pain.
As per the guidelines of American College of Rheumatology guidelines, a person is said to have fibromyalgia when at least 11 of these 18 tender points are painful when a certain amount of pressure is applied on them. The tender points located around the back of the neck, front of the neck, hips, elbows, lower back, upper back knees, chest, and shoulders.

Fatigue (tiredness) is another major complaint in people who have fibromyalgia. Even after sleeping for long hours people with fibromyalgia feel tired and drained out. Some people describe this fatigue similar to that experienced during the flu. The person feels too tired to do simple, everyday things.

Most people with fibromyalgia have sleep issues. They may have difficulty falling asleep or maintaining sleep. Some may experience poor sleep quality in the form of light or easily disturbed sleep. Sleep disturbances arise due to a pain that wakes the person frequently at night. Sleep disturbance may also be linked with other sleep disorders, such as restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea that many people with fibromyalgia tend to have. Feeling unrefreshed and weak in the morning is also very common.

Fibro-fog and cognitive problems are other symptoms of fibromyalgia wherein a person has difficulty paying attention, focussing and concentrating on mental tasks. Remembering information, learning new things, and following conversations also becomes difficult.

Apart from the above, other symptoms and related conditions include headaches, depression, anxiety, tingling, prickling, numbness, burning sensation in hands, feet, arms, legs, pain in lower abdomen, painful periods in women, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Triggering Factors

Family History – A person with a family history of fibromyalgia is at risk to develop it.

Gender – Women are more at risk of developing fibromyalgia. According to NIAMS (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases), between 80 to 90 % diagnosed cases of fibromyalgia are women, and the female hormone estrogen has been linked to this.

Age – Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 50 years.

Other Diseases – People with certain diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, are at an increased risk to develop fibromyalgia.

Sleep Disorders – People with sleep disorders including sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome tend to develop fibromyalgia.

Infections – Infections caused by certain viruses tend to trigger or worsen fibromyalgia. These viruses include the Epstein-Barr virus, influenza virus, and viruses that cause hepatitis B and C. Apart from this, Lyme disease caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi is also linked with fibromyalgia.

Trauma – Physical or mental trauma can trigger fibromyalgia. Physical injury mainly in the cervical spine is linked with fibromyalgia. Emotional trauma like a divorce or the death of a family member/ loved one is another trigger factor noted in cases of fibromyalgia.

Diagnosing Fibromyalgia

It is often difficult to diagnose fibromyalgia because of the lack of a specific investigation. Further, its symptoms (mainly pain) mimic many other conditions. A diagnosis for fibromyalgia is made when the patient experiences widespread pain in the tender points of the body for a minimum of three months for no specific reason.

Clinical Diagnosis for Fibromyalgia

There are no lab tests that can confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Certain tests are done to rule out other conditions that have symptoms (mainly chronic pain) similar to fibromyalgia. These include a rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP ( anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide), ESR, CBC (complete blood count), and thyroid function test.

Mind and Homeopathy

The brain is an enigma for scientists, and its dynamics are not so simple to be easily deconstructed and understood. As the modern medical world inches towards a more profound unraveling and a better understanding of the complexities of this 10 trillion-celled mass called brain, the last century has seen considerable progress being made in realizing (pardon me for not using the word ‘understanding’!) the connection of the mind with the physical body. This quest has also contributed to the discovery of an entirely new set of afflictions that can be described as psychosomatic disorders.                                    psychosomatic homeopathy

The term psychosomatic disorder defies a clear-cut definition. But broadly, the term mostly refers to physical disorders whose causation lies in psychological or emotional factors. For example, a particularly stressful event, like grief or bereavement arising from the loss of a loved one, may in one individual trigger high blood pressure shortly thereafter or even a heart attack. In another person, the same sense of grief might result in a peptic ulcer or a series of asthmatic attacks. A third individual, equally grief-stricken, might not show such symptoms of sickness at all.

Mental and Emotional Triggers

Social and psychological stress can trigger or aggravate a wide variety of diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), leukemia, and multiple sclerosis (MS). Even ailments like colitis, spasm, Basedow’s disease, and dysmenorrhea mostly manifest psychosomatic causality. Certain cancers like lung cancers are also believed to be triggered or aggravated by emotional and psychological stress.

Various lifestyle diseases like anorexia nervosa or enuresis, which have an unusually high incidence among adolescents and women, are popular examples of psychosomatic disorders. They are believed to be rooted in psychological factors such as lack of self-worth, social or peer pressure, depression, etc.

Other common ailments like bronchial asthma are also many times a manifestation of psychological and emotional conflict. Scientists believe that often respiratory disorders such as asthma and dyspnoea are rooted in the “protection” instinct or the “breathing space” instinct. The emotional stress arising from being denied mental or emotional space, from suffering a sense of suffocation, or from being denied a sense of affirmation can be the causative factors contributing to the lungs feeling constricted, leading to a difficulty in breathing and gasping for breath. Asthmatic conditions can also be a manifestation of a subconscious desire for protection or be triggered by acute grief or mourning.

Psychological Defense Mechanisms

Another typical example of psychosomatic affliction is skin disorders. Experts believe that many skin diseases have their roots in emotional distress or “separation conflict,” which arises from a fear of being separated from loved ones – be it parents, partner, progeny or peers. In such cases of emotional stress or distress, the skin loses epidermal cells, or begins to lose sensation, or peels off, becomes flaky and rough. These physical symptoms, such as loss of epidermal cells, are nothing but often a psychological defense mechanism to protect against a future fear of separation.

Even the incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease pertaining to the auto-immune nervous system that affects the neurons, is often attributed to emotional trauma or psychological stress. The psychosomatic causes of MS could range from grief, anger, dejection or suppressed emotions such as hurt or humiliation in personal or professional relationships.

Psychological afflictions like depression can also suppress the immune system, making a depressed person more vulnerable to even uncomplicated infections, such as those by the viruses that cause the common old.

So can the mind (brain) alter the activity of white blood cells (blood cells responsible for the body’s defense mechanism) and thus an immune response. If so, how does the brain communicate with the blood cells? After all, white blood cells travel through the body in the blood or lymph vessels and aren’t attached to the nerves.

Research corroborates the existence of psychosomatic causality.
For instance, an ailment such as hives or urticaria manifests both mental or physical causality. In the same way, a problem like stress, which is triggered by psychological factors, has physical manifestations even though no physical ailment exists. Some of the physiological manifestations of psychologically-triggered stress could be a rise in blood pressure, heart rate, increase in sweating or muscle pain in various parts of the body. All these are a reaffirmation that many disorders are rooted in psychosomatic causality.

Homeopathy’s Synthesis Approach

A skilled homeopath shows a deep understanding of this relationship between the mind and the body. His great masters like Hahnemann and Kent have taught it to him. Homeopathy entails taking a holistic view of wellness, and ascertaining the physical factors in consonance with the emotional or mental triggers to get the big picture. The hallmark of the homeopathic approach to disease is an assimilated view of the multiple causalities of ailments, be they mundane or significant disorders. Homeopathy favors a synthesis approach to treatment that does not segregate the psychological causality from the physical manifestations.

The homeopath ensures that chronic cases like a migraine and peptic ulcer, which have their origin in a mental trauma or prolonged stress, disappear with a few doses of a correctly prescribed homeopathic medicine.

The holistic approach of homeopathy does not segregate the mind and body when assessing causality. Rather, homeopathy has an assimilative approach that examines both physiological as well as psychological causality when diagnosing a patient.
This acknowledgment of interconnectedness is not merely a vague, impractical concept. Homeopaths base virtually every homeopathic prescription on the physical and psychological symptoms of a sick person.

Psychological symptoms often play a primary role in the selection of correct medicine. Several schools of psychologists categorize people into certain psychological or characterological types. Others in medicine, genetics, and sports may classify people on the basis of various body types. Homeopaths, in contrast, acknowledge certain ‘body-mind’ types. They determine their medicines based on the constellation of physical and psychological symptoms. The homeopathic treatment is highly scientific and artful, thus making it by far the best treatment for psychosomatic disorders.

The biggest advantage homeopathy offers is its assimilative approach towards causality and cure.
