Gas

Gas Passing gas (flatulence) is a normal process of eliminating excess stomach or intestinal gas. It has always been with us, it is even reported that Hippocrates wrote “Passing gas is necessary to well-being”. In an average person this may occur 6 to 20 times a day.  The reason is that as the body breaks down food during the process of digestion flatus (gas) is produced.  Various foods release different gases hence the sometimes-undesirable odors.  Foods known to produce more gas in some folks include:

•  Beans

•  Dairy products

•  Lentils

•  Some fruits

Some digestive disorders may cause an increase in gas:

•  Celiac disease

•  Food allergies

•  GERD

•  IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)

•  Lactose intolerance

•  Peptic ulcer

Oils & Blends: Ginger, Lavender, Peppermint

Suggested protocols:

1 – 3 drops of Ginger or Lavender in a capsule taken 15 to 30 minutes before meals, especially those meals with foods that cause gas in this individual.
