I have a problem with farting- what do i do?

What the causes are and how to eliminate these toxic fumes.

The Culprits of these toxic fumes

apples, apricots, baked beans, bananas, bran muffins and cereals, cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, citrus fruits, corn, cream cucumbers, dried beans, dried peas, eggplant, ice cream, ice milk,, kohlrabi, lentils, lima beans, milk, oats, pastries, onions, peaches, , pears, potatoes, pretzels, prune juice, prunes, rutabagas, raisins, radishes, sauerkraut, Sorbitol, and mannitol -artificial sweeteners- , tomatoes, wheat bread, and wheat germ. * yes, i did my share of research, and as an added plus work in the medical industry.

How To Avoid/prevent them

- Check your posture and position. You should be eating sitting at the table, not laying around, or lounging. When you eat or drink laying down, the gas in your stomach cannot escape.

-You should eat slowly, chew thouroughly, and dont gulp, because when you gulp, youll only swallow air, and that produces flatulence. (farts)

- dry up that drip: postnasal drip often leads to air swallowing, and gas production.

- try beano.

-reach for OTC medications containing simethicone. This relieve simptoms of bloatingness, pressure, and fullness due to gas. Gas-X, Mylicon Gas, etc.

-try drinking tea. They contain natural oils that settle the stomach.

-try rocking in a rocking chair. You can't just rock, you have to put your feet on the floor, and put some BAM! into it. ( this tip makes it easier to pass gas.)
