Flatulence cures is all about the causes of bad gas and bloating, specific flatulence remedies that can help today and a longer term plan for how to stop farting.
About Flatulence Cures
Hi and thanks for visiting. My name’s James Dillan and I created Flatulence Cures to provide detailed information on how to improve digestion and cure belly bloat, intestinal cramps, excessive flatulence and other digestive disorders.
Importantly, nothing written on the site should be taken as medical advice. Please consult a doctor before using natural remedies at the same time as any prescribed medicines as they may have side effects.
I’ve been a health and nutrition researcher and writer for over 10 years and despite being healthy in other ways, I found I had a problem with flatulence. Clearly my digestive health wasn’t as good as it should be.
Deciding I wanted to learn how to stop farting once and for all, I started looking heavily into all of the causes of bad gas, bloating and other intestinal disorders and then researching the best natural remedies and homemade cures for these problems.
Time and again I’d come back to problems with digestion. By necessity, this website has become just as much about improving the digestive process as preventing flatulence. It’s very difficult to stop farting without addressing your gastrointestinal problems.
If you have a specific digestion/flatulence related topic you’re interested in please leave a comment on a relevant article. Wishing everyone reading this more healthiness and less digestive problems in future.
What Causes Flatulence?
Unfortunately, there isn’t just one cause of flatulence problems for everyone. It would be great if I could write just one detailed article on exactly what causes flatulence and how to stop farting too much. In reality though, there are lots of flatulence causes and different ones affect different people.
The best way to deal with excessive gas is to become aware of what causes it for many people out there. Then eliminate the offending (literally) food, drink or behavior as much as possible for at least several days, preferably a week, and see if this results in a reduction in passing wind for you.
To make this process of elimination easier, this page will be updated with a summary of the individual flatulence causes with each new article posted. Some of them may seem surprising. But they’re worth considering if your serious about dealing with excessive flatulence.
Common Flatulence Causes
Cola and Flatulence
Drinking cola and other sodas are reported to cause flatulence problems for many people. This is most likely to be due to the massive amounts of high fructose corn syrup or sugar in cola. The sugar is perfect flatulence fuel for the intestinal bacteria that make us fart.
Alongside all of the sugar or HFCS, cola is also loaded with a range of potentially damaging ingredients for hampering digestion, like caffeine, phosphoric acid and ammonia sulfite caramel coloring E150D.
For some good news, Replace Cola with Healthier Alternatives has a surprising new drink that tastes great, has the fizz and is actually good for you.
There is also a 10 step plan in Quit Soda to easily give up cola addiction, without suffering from withdrawal problems. If you’re a cola addict this could be one of the best things you ever do for your health.
Aerophagia and Stomach Gas
Aerophagia is a condition where you swallow too much air into your gastrointestinal tract. This can lead to stomach gas, bloating, intestinal cramps and eventually extra flatulence.
While swallowing air would be unlikely to make farts smell bad, it may well significantly increase the amount of gas. There’s much more details in the post on How to Stop Swallowing Air.
Also keep in mind, when asking the question ‘what causes flatulence?’, anything that you can do to improve digestion, can also lead to a reduction in intestinal gas and farting.
Our digestive systems are so important to our overall health and day to day energy levels. Excessive flatulence is just one of the symptoms of poor digestive health.
Start by becoming aware of what causes flatulence for you in the first place. From there, you can start dealing with it with the corresponding flatulence cures.
It’s worth individually removing them from your diet for a week, noticing if your digestive symptoms improve, and particularly if they worsen when you reintroduce them.
One step at a time, you can discover and then greatly reduce or eliminate the causes of flatulence in your daily diet and behaviour.
The end result will be better digestion, a healthier body and greater sense of well-being in general.
