Flatulence or Bowel Gas (Farting) – Causes and Tips

Possible Causes Flatulence . There can be various causes for the development of intestinal gas, including:

  • Swallowing air, for example due to tension, eating too hastily, not chewing enough
  • A disturbed intestinal flora (bacterial balance) in the intestines; bacteria can produce intestinal gases
  • Combinations of certain foods (e.g. cabbage, beans and onions)
  • Some people cannot tolerate the combination of fruit and vegetables in one meal
  • Liver and pancreas disorders, which means digestion is not optimal

 

Tension Stress and Flatulence

Tension and stress can also be the cause of flatulence. When stressed, digestion often runs slower and less efficiently. This can, among other things, result in slower intestinal movements or the pancreas and other digestive organs secreting less juice. As a result, the food remains in the intestines longer and fermentations can occur. These intestinal gases can even irritate the diaphragm, which affects heart function. This is called Roemheld syndrome.
Fame hero syndrome . When intestinal gases irritate the diaphragm, heart function can be impaired. This can give the feeling of a serious heart condition, although the heart is not wrong. The cause is an excessively high position of the stimulated diaphragm.

Tips if you suffer from intestinal gas – Flatulence Passing wind

  • See if you are sensitive to the combination of fruit and vegetables in the same meal, by eating only vegetables or only fruit in the same meal for a few days and notice whether you pass less gas. Then simply compare the combination again and experience the difference
  • Use a little cumin, fennel or anise when preparing food. These herbs prevent the formation of intestinal gases

  • Drink two glasses of lukewarm water every morning on an empty stomach
