7 best natural ways to reduce farting and gas problems.

I had a massive problem with farting. I was farting a lot.

I had to find a solution. I read online, and realized it had something to do with my gut flora not being balanced – or missing key microbes or ‘good bacteria’. I figured this might have been from eating processed food, or perhaps not enough probiotics?

I tried probiotics and that didn’t help.

I also went to the Doctor and he prescribed digestion medicine and anti-acids. That didn’t help.

So, I spoke to my mum. I figured she’d know about eastern medicine, as she’s always suggesting different herbs and remedies. NATURAL herbs and remedies. That’s what I wanted. I wanted to know about the best natural ways to get rid of gas and farting.

As a result – below are the 7 BEST NATURAL REMEDIES for reducing gas, flatulence and farting. Number 7 is the game changer! Here’s how to stop farting so much:

1. Ajwain

ajwain (carom) seeds are great for reducing flatulence or farting!

Ajwain or carom seeds has been used for thousands of years to treat digestive issues.

It’s not the best tasting but is effective in stimulating digestion by increasing digestive enzyme activity.

As someone of Indian background, I can tell you that ajwain is a popular remedy for stomach problems including flatulence!

2. Fennel Seeds

Advantage of fennel seeds. Helps reduce farting!

I have fennel seeds (or ‘saunf’) after a meal to aid with digestion. Not only does it stimulates digestive enzymes but it is high in fibre. This means that you process food quicker leaving less chance of gas buildup and farting!

It is very common in India for people to chew on fennel seeds after a large meal.

3. Peppermint

Advantage of peppermint supplement. Peppermint helps to reduce flatulence and farting.

Peppermint leaves contain methol oil, which acts to relax the digestive tract and support the passage of food and air through the stomach.

Have a cup of peppermint tea after each meal. But I much prefer a peppermint supplement for sustained relief.

4. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Advantages of raw apple cider vinegar - helps treat farting and flatulence

Too much acid in your stomach or an overproduction of acidity in your stomach may be causing excess gas and flatulence.

The alkalinity of apple cider vinegar helps neutralize the acidity of the stomach. It also helps supplement your digestive enzymes aiding for a smoother digestive process.

Apple cider vinegar also has many other health benefits including weight management, moderation of sugar levels and a healthy heart.

5. Asafoetida

Aasafoetida - It can really help you reduce farting and flatulence!

Asafoetida or ‘hing’ is used to treat digestion and gas. It also helps with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, intestinal worms and flatulence.

Hing does this by restoring the natural PH level of the stomach. An imbalanced PH level in the stomach is usually what causes improper digestion of food and the build up of gas and flatulence.

I highly recommend adding hing to gravies, soups and dals or you can add it to warm water for drinking.

6. Hajmola

Hajmola - cure for flatulence and gas?

Ok, Hajmola is a product from the Indian ayurvedic company Dabur – but it is still natural. Hajmola comes in tablet form and consists of the ingredients mango, mint, black pepper, ginger and long pepper. All of which aid the digestive system and reduce flatulence.

I was given this tablet as a child when I had a tummy ache and I must admit it’s a bit strong to the taste buds, but you get used to it.

It certainly did help back then with indigestion but I haven’t tried it since. It’s an ayurvedic medicine and certainly worth trying out if you have gas problems!

7. Jeera tea

Jeera seeds - the best cure for flatulence and gas!

Jeera is the best solution for greatly reducing gas and farting.

Jeera is known for its ant-inflammatory properties, kills microbes and is rich in antioxidants and iron. Jeera (or cumin seeds) has essential oils that stimulate saliva, helps digestion process and reduces growth of colon ‘gas’ producing bacteria.

Have it as part of tea and it will do wonders for your flatulence!

Simply do the following:

  • Roast 2 tea spoons of jeera in a pan, until dark brown (smoke and burning smell is normal)
  • Switch the flame off when dark brown and add to another pan
  • Add 2 cups of water and ‘jaggery (Raw cane sugar) powder
  • Stir well and boil the mixture for 5-7 minutes until the quantity reduces to half

So there you have it. The 7 best remedies for reducing gas and flatulence.

In my opinion, jeera tea is the best one for improving your digestion – but you should also review your overall diet. These tips will help:

  • Reduce alcohol
  • Reduce process foods
  • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
  • Eat plenty of pro-biotics or even better – natural yoghurt
  • Avoid gas producing foods, i.e. beans and legumes
  • Do plenty of exercise
