Gas Poblem -Treat it with Homeopathy

“Gas problem” is something that is mostly harmless but can be very disturbing and incapacitating for the person who suffers from it. Its implications are diverse; ranging from being a mere social embarrassment to quite a troublesome yet benign gastric issue. The big question is why do some individuals suffer more from gas than others do? The answer lies in the fact that some of us are biologically more prone to have this problem where as for others, eating habits contribute majorly to this disorder. This gas problem exhibits mainly in three ways. Patients complain of being bloated around the abdomen or passing of too much gas from the anus (flatulence) and thirdly belching of gas from mouth (eructation).

Belching of air or eructation occur mainly due to swallowed air (aerophagia) during eating, drinking. This is also associated with increased intake of carbonated drinks. Excessive salivation also leads to increase in the swallowing of air.. Bloating of the abdomen is usually related to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or chronic constipation and rarely is it associated with serious gut problems. People with IBS have this increased sensitivity of the intestinal walls. This sensitivity causes even little gas to give the impression of excessive bloating of abdomen.

It is important to realize that some amount of gas formation is very normal and is produced naturally during the process of digestion. Flatus (gas passed from anus) is a metabolic byproduct of intestinal bacteria and is not caused by swallowed air .An average normal adult has 13 to 19 gas passages every day. 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.

Passing of gas from anus is mostly related with the food that we eat or with the kind of bacteria that we have in our intestines.  Flatulence is generally produced when undigested food is acted upon by bacteria in our large intestines. Certain food substances produce more flatulence than others because they contain more indigestible carbohydrates. Substances that lead to overproduction of gas are , beans, dairy products,  onions, celery, carrots, sprouts, fruits (raisins, bananas, apricots) and complex carbohydrates  like dals . People with lactase deficiency and celiac disease (gut allergy to wheat) also suffer from excessive flatulence. Gases like   Methane, Hydrogen and Hydrogen Sulphide are the main component of flatulence. Hydrogen sulphide is responsible for the odor of the flatus.

Homeopathy offers a very effective cure for excessive gas problem.  Homeopathic medicines Carbo Veg ,Lycopodium and Nux Vomica  are few of the very effective ones. Carbo Veg can be used for nearly all kinds of excessive gas conditions though  more suited in conditions where the symptoms of bloating appear immediately after eating and everything that has been eaten seems to get converted into gas. Lycopodium is more suited for patients that have the problem of passing more flatulence and also when their problem tends to increase towards the evening hours. Nux  Vomica is one of the most effective   medicines for our digestive system  and is  used in conditions that are incidental to  modern living like excess of alcohol  and improper eating habits.

    The food is converted into excessive gas and it hits area of sternum causing pain. Relief is experienced when gas is released through anus.
    Probably it is due to indigestion and tobacco chewing.

  11. Rahul Tripathy says:

    I am a 46 years old healthy man and since long I am suffering from abdominal gas problem, which aggravated since last 4 years. I have taken consultations of many physicians and even gastroenterologist and underwent several tests including endoscopy. For this issue I have taken all allopathic formulations like PPIs and H2receptors. Doctors tried different anxiolytic drugs as well. Meanwhile I also developed hypertension.
    It is a fact that my life became more stressfull since last 4 years but after taking a lot of allopathic medicines, I never get fully cured from this abdominal gas formation, for which sometimes I also felt pain also in my back and in waist region.
    Please give your suggestion.

      Several times I underwent was normal study. But recently One gastroenterrologist suggested me to go for Narrow band Imaging endoscopy, where it was found that I have small hiatal hernia, Oesophagities Gr B and Chronic gastritis with deodenal ulcers.. again doctor asked me to take same medicine BD for 6 weeks and taper the dose. Now I am on OD.
      My main symptom is that the air/gas gets accumulated comes to the middle of my heart making me get panicy. I also off late developed loud belchings. If flatus comes out from the anus, my symptoms gets relieved…. I also approached many homeopathists, they have given medicines like Nux Vomica, Sulphur, Lyco,Robenia, Hydrastis, etc on 200 potency and Natrum Phos 6X etc., on rotation.
      Doctor please suggest me the correct medicine to take out the flatus as and when required.
