Gas or flatulence occurs in everyone. If your gas is severe it can become uncomfortable and painful. Certain foods are known to produce gas, and you can avoid these foods if gas is a problem for you. These foods are broccoli, potatoes, dairy products and beans. Swallowing too much air while eating can also produce gas. There are some herbal remedies that can help treat gas.

  • Peppermint - Peppermint contains menthol, which helps stimulate the intestines. It also helps relax the muscles in the digestive tract, promoting burping. You can eat peppermint candy or mints, which are helpful (Do you always notice the peppermint candies at restaurants?) Peppermint tea is also a great way to take peppermint. You can drink 1-2 cups of tea after a meal to aid digestion.
  • Chamomile - Chamomile helps aid digestion and can also help dissipate gas in the body. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory. Often used as a tea, it is helpful to drink a cup of chamomile tea after eating. Those with allergies to ragweed should avoid this herb.
  • Aniseed - The seeds from the anise plant have been shown to help eliminate gas buildup. Taken as a tea, steep the dried, crushed seeds in hot water for 10 minutes. Strain and drink warm.
  • Ginger- Ginger root is known to help relieve nausea and helps with simple indigestion such as gas. You can drink a cup of tea after a meal that may cause gas. It is also available in capsule form.
