The ones who have a gastric problem will read the post heading and say ‘At last!’ whereas the ones who do not have such problem may quote ‘Eww!’ When we said that having gas is normal we meant, it is not abnormal.
Once in a while a person may have gas formation in his/her stomach, but that doesn’t mean that you have this problem everyday and think its okay. No sir! With a proper diet, no person should be getting much gas problems. For the ones who don’t follow the thread, here are a few herbal cures that will treat your condition.
Why It Occurs
Gas forms inside our stomach when we accidentally take in a gulp of air in between meal or liquid intake. Mostly, however, it has been seen that the condition occurs due to an irregularity in the order of meals or having foods with high saturated fat, oil, etc. content. Normally, it doesn’t pose much as an embarrassment but when the gas comes out via flatulence and with a bad odor, it breaks all hell loose.
Herbs That Help In Easing The Gas Condition
Apart from over the counter medicines some (listed) herbs help in easing the gas condition and helps in stabilizing your body and stomach.
The herb dandelion is highly underrated. Dandelions help in the cure of gas. To relieve the gas, what people mostly do is make and take tea of the dandelion leaves. These leaves are available at the market (dried) or fresh (if you have access to such).
Boil one helping of water and then steep in it the dandelion leaves for about 15 minutes. You may add a little sugar or honey. Can you believe an herb like this is sometimes chopped of by gardeners who feel these are weeds?
Parsley is known to most individuals, as an aromatic herb, used to add flavor and aroma to dishes. What many of them do not know is that it also serves in carrying out a smooth digestion. You can eat the herb raw or make a juice out of it, to relieve the gas.
It will help expel the gas from your stomach and also keep your digestive system healthy. However, it is suggested that you do not eat large amounts of parsley at once.
Cinnamon And Basil
Cinnamon and basil, both are used as a potent herbal aid in case of different health emergencies. It also helps in treating a number of stomach problems including that of gas.
These herbs contain certain properties which help the individual relieve the flatulence, nausea and other stomach disorders. Cinnamon also may sometime help in treating diarrhea.
The herb ginger contains digestive properties which make the one taking it, relieve the gas and also treat other such stomach disorders. Ginger also helps in stimulating the taste buds to produce saliva, which in turn helps in digestion.
It is available in various forms: powdered, raw, supplements, etc. The best way perhaps is to take raw, or to make tea out of the herb and drink the same. Again, excessive amount of this herb may cause diarrhea, heartburn, etc.
