Millions of people struggle each day with abdominal bloating and gas. Though it is a common, natural bodily function (the average person passes gas more than 14 times per day) caused by many different factors, from the types of food, beverages or medications we consume, to stress or as a result of more serious conditions, it can be embarrassing for many, particularly if it arises in a public setting.
Managing Gas Isn't Rocket Science: Gas Tips from the Doctor
Daily flatulence is normal and necessary. In fact, the average person passes gas about 14 times per day (the human body produces one to three pints daily). However, some experience gas more than others, so here are some recommendations on how to minimize it.....
Keep a gas diary:
If gas has become more than just an occasional nuisance, try to determine if your gas is related to a particular food by noting the volume of gas within six hours of your last meal. It takes about a full six hours for portions of a meal to be released as gas, so if you have a particularly gassy sensation, it might not be that snack you just ate, but the meal you had earlier in the day. If you find that you are gassy, note all items in your last several meals to crosscheck against other meal periods where you experience gas.
Non-smelling flatulence results from swallowed air, which is symptomatic of chewing gum, drinking through straws, sucking on hard candies or nervousness, rather than something you've eaten. Foul-smelling flatulence is related to the breakdown of actual foods as they go through the intestinal tract. If nutrients are poorly absorbed, they "feed" bacteria in the gut, which then produces the smelly flatulence.
Slow on fiber:
If your physician recommends that you increase your fiber intake, do this slowly. Fiber breaks down in the intestines and causes gas.
Walk it off: Instead of keeping still after a meal, get moving: take a post-dinner stroll, do some chores around the house, or walk the dog. Not only is this a nice excuse for a bit of exercise, but it will keep your body moving and gas flowing.
Consult your doctor:
If excessive or malodorous gas persists, see a doctor. What's making your belly bloat might not be gas, but a symptom of an underlying condition, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, pancreatic insufficiency or lactose intolerance. A gastroenterologist can make these determinations and prescribe proper diet and/or medication.
Gas & Travel: “Jet Bloat” a Common Side Effect of Air Travel
Whether you are taking to the skies for business or pleasure, be prepared for a lot of “jet bloat,” the body’s increased volume of gas that occurs from airline travel – the higher the altitude, the more the gas in our bodies expands. In fact, a survey for CharcoCaps™ Homeopathic AntiGas Formula found that 16 percent of adults admit to passing gas during public travel. Excessive gum chewing, candy sucking and air swallowing to equalize the inner ear air pressure for take-off and landing will lead to non-smelling flatulence, while harried eating at the airport is another contributor to jet bloat.
If you find yourself experiencing jet bloat and becoming gassier during airline travel, follow these guidelines for eating and drinking at the airport and while in flight:
When scouring the food court, avoid anything that you’ve shown intolerance for on the ground. If milk intolerance is your downfall – avoid all dairy. Try to avoid foods that will probably make you gassy, such as fried foods, beans, bananas, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, or broccoli. If you get gassy, the volume will expand, even in the pressurized cabin as you reach flight altitudes – so there will be even more volume of gas, which can lead to discomfort from jet bloat.
Drink beverages rich in electrolytes, such as tomato or fruit juices, which help with hydration. While water is also fine, avoid coffee, tea and sodas since they will dehydrate you, and the carbonation in the soda can cause gas issues. Since alcohol is also a dehydrator, hold off until you are on the ground at the hotel.
