Home remedies for Gas and Bloating

Do you have problems with gas and do not know what to do to solve them? In this OneHowTo article we give you some advice on natural remedies which will help to improve and eventually eliminate them. However, it is also important to know the cause of the flatulence and what foods cause gas. Next, we give you some home remedies for gas and bloating so you can forget about this uncomfortable condition.

Lemon juice to combat gases

During lunch and dinner drink small sips of lemon juice diluted in a glass of water. Each time you have pain due to the gases you can drink the same mixture or prepare a mixture of lemon and bicarbonate.

Lemon is one of the most effective home remedies for gas and bloating due to the fact that it helps regulate the pH in your stomach, so it's also useful to fight other affections such as heartburn and indigestion. Moreover, lemon has many beneficial properties for other conditions, as you'll be able to see in our article: what are the benefits of lemon.

Apple cider vinegar and honey to get rid of gas

You can also dilute two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and two of honey in a glass of water. Drink this mixture for lunch or dinner in small sips. This drink will help get rid of gases, as it helps regulate stomach acids and eases intestinal transit.

You can also resort to this home remedy to treat other affections and help you in some beauty tricks too.

Celery to combat gases

Another way to end gases is by boiling a bunch of celery for 5 minutes in a pint of water. Before each meal you should drink a glass of this celery water to take advantage of its digestive properties to avoid accumulation of gases in your stomach.

Take carminative spices and herbs to combat gases

Fennel, coriander, cumin, caraway, anise and star anise are very good to get rid of gas. To better benefit from its active ingredients (found in the seeds), add hot water to the seeds, grind in a blender, leave to stand and strain. Once done, you should drink the liquid slowly.

Lie down in a foetal position to eliminate gases

If you have a lot of gas and want to eliminate them right away, we can have some good advice for you. Lie in bed in a fetal position (seen pictured) and being very relaxed stay a while in this position. This causes the anal sphincter to open and, therefore, you can expel gas.

Other things to consider to get rid of gases

If you want to have less gas also take into account:

  • Relax before eating. If you cannot do so, take a relaxing infusion just before eating (for example, an infusion of lemon balm)
  • When you eat carbohydrates, chew them for a long time to ensure they reach the intestine well digested.
  • Eat smaller meals more often.
  • Introduce ginger to your meals because it stimulates digestive secretions.
  • Avoid eating fruit during meals because it ferments easily and creates gases.
  • Avoid taking sweet desserts.
  • Avoid drinking during meals. It is better to drink water throughout the day at other times.
  • Put heat on your stomach
  • Avoid eating fatty meals
  • Drink peppermint or chamomile tea
