Feel Gassy and Bloated? Find out What Might Help!

This entry was posted in Wellness Center on by .

Almost all of our clients complain that they feel gassy and bloated and ask whether colon- hydrotherapy (colonics) will help them with their problem.

Gas can be embarrassing and unpleasant, but everyone has it — and no, you are not the only one. Most adults release gas over 15 times a day! The gas that passes through the rectum comes from bacteria in the large intestine, which contains sulfur (this gives an unpleasant smell). In addition, gas can be caused by swallowing air, but also from the normal breakdown of undigested foods. Everyone is unique and what causes gas for one person may not affect another. Yes, colon-hydrotherapy will definitely help. Colonic Therapy will remove all the harmful, dried out, toxic wastes that are stuck around the walls of large intestines. Fecal matter that was not released on time lets bad bacteria to multiply in our colons which lead to production of unhealthy environment in intestines that cause gas and bloating.

Nevertheless, it is also very important to know the food that might cause the problem, drink plenty of water, and chew your food thoroughly. Some of the healthiest foods can cause gas, so it’s important to know how to eat them. Check the list below to avoid your own gas crisis:

Carbohydrates: For some people, though not all, starches like wheat, different types of grains, potatoes, and corn can produce gas as they’re digested in the large intestine. If this happens to you, make sure to eat slowly.

Milk: Lactose, the sugar found in milk, can promote gas and bloating in some people. It happens because some people either don’t have Lactase enzyme that digests milk or just don’t have enough of it. Therefore, try to stay away from cheese, milk, yogurt, and ice cream if you suspect this is happening to you

 

Fiber-rich Foods: Fiber helps keep you full, regulates your bowels, and may lower the risk of heart disease and specific cancers. Soluble fiber, found in oat bran, beans, peas, and most fruits, gets broken down when it reaches the large intestine, producing gas. Does this mean you should avoid it? No, not at all! In fact, you should build up your tolerance. If your diet currently consists of little fiber, incorporate it slowly to prevent stomach distress and bloating. Drink plenty of water, too, to help the process along.

Cruciferous Vegetables:
Watch out for common gassy foods like cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus. When you do eat these foods, it helps to chew them as thoroughly as possible.

Hope this will help you to stay Gas Free! 🙂
