Three Easy Homemade Herbal Recipes for Intestinal Gas and Bloating

Inactive lifestyle, lack of exercise, junk food, work pressure, emotional stress, and sleeping immediately after eating are the most important factors that lead to intestinal gas. As intestinal gas can be frequent and annoying for ourselves and others, it is best to cure it with herbal remedies, as allopathic drugs like Pantocid and Ocid only help on a temporary basis but herbal recipes calm down the problem on a permanent basis. Although acute acidic conditions can be cured by homemade herbal medicines, chronic form of hyperacidity that can be a result of chronic medicine use is curable only with proper herbal recipes, diet, and exercise. An active lifestyle with more emphasis on consumption of fresh fruits and healthy food on a daily basis helps get rid of intestinal gas, bloating, and flatulence. So below are three easy and healthy homemade herbal recipes for intestinal gas and bloating:

The easiest homemade herbal recipe for intestinal gas is a tea made up of either fennel seeds or Tulsi leaves or chamomile leaves or freshly cut ginger and peppermint leaves. This homemade tea recipe is very old but has recently become popular due to its effectiveness against intestinal bloating and gas. Recommended on a daily basis in morning and evening.

Awesome hub!

Back here in the Philippines, we always add spices on our viands or dishes (the combination of garlic, onion and pepper).

By the way, Sambong tea is my additional tip in removing gas or prevent stomach bloating and also colon cleansing. It also prevents kidney problem. (I think, it is also abundant there in India).

Thanks for your visit and comment travel_man1971, Really I don't know anything about Sambong tea but I will surely check out if its available in India. It's scientific name is B. balsamifera and it is found in Himalayas on the Indian side but I am not getting its name in Hindi. Need to do some research. Thanks for sharing such an interesting herb. Now again I have something unique to research and write on.
