Some require time, while others work fairly quick. The steps listed in this article are more about a small change in lifestyle or choice of food one eats and not about taking more pills. Let's take a closer look.

Food Processing and Food Choices

When eating several parts of our body are involved. One of the biggest problems we have seen is people swallowing food before it is properly chewed. Chew food carefully. Carbohydrate digestion begins in the mouth. Any work your teeth don't do, your stomach will have to do later. Gas is produced by colon bacteria in the presence of poorly absorbed carbohydrates (aka food not properly chewed). So, better chewing before swallowing food can definitely help to reduce to production of gas inside your body. Another option is too look at the diet and different foods one is eating and replace them with food/meal options that are easier to chew and easier to digest.

High-fat meals are responsible for a lot of gas, too. If high-fat meals are on your diet frequently, try to spread them out into smaller meals through-out the day. Try to reduce the number of items that contain a lot of fat. Mixing more veggies into a meal plan is an easy and delicious way to do this. Also, reducing the amount of fried food from Fast Food Joints will help to reach that goal. Foods containing a lot of fat are also responsible for other health problems - including high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Certain foods are well-known for producing gas. Gas-producing foods include (but are not limited to) beans, cabbage, onions, cauliflower, and broccoli. Other foods that produce gas are certain type of breads, apples, peaches, pears, prunes, corn, oats, potatoes, and dairy products like milk and cheese. A well balanced diet can help to avoid gas. Switching to Lacto-Free Milk is a step that can help as well.

Long-term problems take longer to heal. Some experts recommend colon cleansing to speed up the process of reducing the discomfort related to bloating and gas. Colon Cleansing can be done several ways - including at home. Please note that before trying any remedies to treat gas and bloating, it's important to consult with your primary care provider or doctor. This is especially important if you are taking any other meds.
