How many times do we face that awkward situation when you feel completely bloated and face the toughest war of your life where you are torn between letting it go and holding it in. Well all of us are victims and we all share the same feeling of shame. But stomach gases are much more than just an awkward moment or a disease. In fact they are the symptom to something that might be wrong within your body.
There are ways to avoid the situation easily and the easiest is to get some time for yourself or to take a break and get away so that you may let it out. There is nothing to be ashamed as holding it in will only make the situation worse. If it is forming within your body, it needs to go out as well. So the immediate relief can be to pass it off. Take a short brisk walk which will ease release of stomach gas out of the body. Whereas if you want to avoid the formation of stomach gases completely, we suggest that you try the simple remedies that are around you.
Get a cup of tea and mix herbs and roots so that they earn their medicinal powers and start showing their magic on your body. Mixing a bit of ginger or lemon to your tea increases the medicinal qualities of your tea and in turn helps you to reduce the formation of gas within your body. Some spices such as asafoetida (hing), clove etc. help in such situations. Adding some powder of these spices to buttermilk and having it after meals is the simplest way.
One more reason is the eating habits that we follow. Our body faces troubles digesting foods like beans, peas, horse gram, raw sprouts etc. So it is best that you avoid such foods or cook them thoroughly before you consume them. Also it is not always necessary that your body will be reacting the same way to all foods. Try keeping a track of your diet and you will easily start to follow the routine and behaviour of your body. Of course in all of these, we should not forget to chew our foods properly as unchewed food has often been a cause of stomach gas formation.
Following these simple steps in your day to day activity should help you to lower your stomach gas formation and reduce your anxiety of facing those unnecessary and awkward moments while you are attending a meeting or appearing for a test.
