Looking for all-natural ways to prevent and control excess intestinal gas, or flatulence, as it is called in medical jargon?

Flatulence – commonly known as farting or passing gas or wind – is caused by gas in the bowel. Although often uncomfortable and embarrassing, passing wind is usually completely normal. However, in some cases excessive flatus (gas) can be a sign of an underlying condition, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Therefore, if you experience unusual flatulence, particularly if it is accompanied with abdominal pain or bloating, it is important to consult a medical doctor or another qualified health care professional.

Once the possibility of a serious digestive disease or condition has been ruled out, you may want to address the problem of excess gas by making certain modifications to your diet.
