What Can Be The Reasons Of These Stomach Issues?
Stomach gas and bloating are issues that we all, sometimes in life, go through. Gas develops in your stomach mostly or in your intestinal tract. Gas in the stomach develops mostly when we inhale too much air while eating or drinking.
Other reasons you might suffer from extreme stomach issues can be:
- Drinking too many sodas or carbonated drinks
- Eating hard candy
- Chewing gum all the time
Moreover, many people might also experience gas symptoms after eating certain foods. The foods that can trigger bloating, flatulence, and other symptoms include in our stomach can be:

To Get Rid Of Stomach Gas, Bloating And Pain You Need To..
Stomach issues specifically bloating and gas can be very disturbing. But, according to some health professionals, there are a few ways you can deal with bloating and stomach gas. Here are a few:
1. Stop Suppressing The Urge To Pass Gas
If you are sure that the symptoms you are experiencing are definitely related to trapped gas, do not wait or let it get worse. Go to a private place, let out a big burp, or find a bathroom and relieve yourself. The less gas there is in your system, the less likely it will be that you will be in pain
2. Visit Bathroom Frequently
If you feel you need to pass stool and you have a normal bowel movement please do not delay it. Waiting to go to the bathroom when you are in the comfort of your own home will be a bad choice as it will put you in a very difficult position. It might also lead you towards constipation and major upsets in large intestines.
3. Try Having Tea
Green tea or other herbal teas such as spearmint, ginger, and anise teas all have gas-reducing reputations which can help you with this condition.
If you suffer from conditions like chronic diarrhoea it is recommended to avoid anise tea as it has a mild laxative effect.
4. Have You Tried The Fennel Seed Remedy?
Fennel seeds reduce intestinal gas. Take approximately one teaspoon and chew them and observe if they are helpful for you.
5. Avoid All Those Factors That Leads To Stomach Issues
Once you have gas relief, it is very important to avoid eating and consuming those things that might cause you future episodes. The most common culprit of gas buildup is swallowing too much air.
Moreover, you can consume foods such as:
- Kidneys beans
- Certain fruits (for example, apples, peaches, pears, bananas, raspberries, and strawberries)
- Whole grains
