How to Get Rid of Gas

What is Intestinal wind?

Intestinal gas is a made up of a variety of gasses such as methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen. Intestinal gas production is a natural process that happens when we digest food.

To get rid of intestinal wind under normal circumstances the body uses the natural processes of burping, belching and flatulence. If a gastrointestinal (GI) disorder such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome is present, the natural process of expelling this wind can be disrupted.

Under these conditions other factors, such as generating excessive intestinal wind and/or trapping the wind due to intestinal cramps or spasms, come into play and creates a problem for the body in trying to get rid of wind.

What Causes Excessive Intestinal wind?

The main causes of excessive intestinal wind are :

  • Too much fiber. Fiber is good in your diet, but too much fiber can cause excessive wind formation. Some fiber sources can cause more wind formation than others, in foods as well as in fiber supplements.
  • Lactose intolerance - some people will find that dairy products cause excess wind in their intestinal tract. This may be because their bodies cannot break down the lactose that is present in dairy products.
  • Intestinal disorders like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, also referred to as Spastic Colon, Crohn's disease or inflammatory bowel disease
  • Swallowing excessive air (aerophagia)
  • Large meals, eating too quickly
  • Fatty foods
  • Smoking
  • Antibiotics lessen the useful bacteria in your gastrointestinal / bowel system
  • Artificial sweeteners such as sorbitol and mannitol can cause excessive gas formation

To get rid of gas as a problem will entail either changing your lifestyle and diet or taking medication. Most likely, you will have to do both.

Dietary changes sound pretty straightforward 'on paper', but can be extremely frustrating in practice. Some things you can do to get rid of excessive wind production are:

  • Reduce your intake of high gas producing foods such as beans, cabbage, legumes, broccoli, some fruits and grains.
  • Avoid dairy products if you suffer from lactose intolerance.
  • Eat smaller meals, more often. Eat slowly and chew the food well.
  • If you are using a fiber supplement such as Psyllium, which can produce more intestinal gas, use Methyl cellulose.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners like sorbitol and mannitol. These can be found in gums, various processed foods and drinks.
  • Avoid coffee, with or without caffeine. Drink tea instead.
  • Avoid fatty foods.
