How to Get Rid of Gas Pain

Check on Sweeteners

Gas can be caused by chewing gum or confectionery that contains artificial sweeteners. So look for sorbitol, mannitol, or xylitol on the label to see if you should limit or avoid them. Another source is drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup. Look for it on labels as well.

Natural remedy

You might benefit from natural therapies in addition to changing your food and habits. Peppermint tea is a good option. They should at the very least be energizing. Anise, caraway, coriander, fennel, and turmeric are also used as dietary supplements. As with any supplement, consult your doctor to see if there are any potential negative effects.

Dining Slowly

It's impossible to eat without swallowing air. However, some practices can exacerbate the problem. You gulp down more air if you eat quickly or converse while eating. If you sip via a straw, chew gum, or suck on hard candy between meals, you will also take in more air. If you smoke, much more air gets in. Dentures that don't fit properly can also allow in a lot of air.

Celiac Disease

Is a disease that affects 11 out of every 13 people.Your doctor may test you for celiac disease if you have gas from foods that contain wheat or other grains. Your body can't manage gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, if you have it. If you have celiac disease, you must follow a gluten-free diet.

Use of Over the counter drugs.

Over-the-counter medications could be a part of your treatment plan. Simethicone-containing antacids break up gas bubbles in your stomach, making it simpler to burp them out. If you take activated charcoal tablets before and after meals, they may assist. If you have gas from beans or vegetables, goods can provide the chemical you need to digest them.
