    What is the best thing to alleviate gas?

    My husband is always letting out pockets of gas.  Some of them smell horrendous! I know it is normal for humans to pass gas but I think he is a little on the abnormal side when it comes to letting them out.  Does anyone know the best home remedies or combinations of them to help him to let them out?  Thanks in advance.

    Actually, I meant to ask if there was any home remedy or remedies that could help him NOT let them out? Thanks.

    There may be something in his diet that is upsetting his system. You may want to consider eliminating one thing from his diet to see if that helps, then trying something else, etc.  Dairy is often a culprit for this kind of problem. Going to the doctor and getting tested is another option. I make sure I rinse beans really well before using them.

    It could be that he has sensitivities to foods. Some foods do cause more gas than others, like broccoli, cauliflower and of course the well know beans.
    There are several herbs you can use to treat gas. Peppermint and fennel help to relieve gas. Have him drink a cup of tea after each meal. Anise is also good for gastric problems. You can read more about home remedies from my hub "Herbal Medicine In Your Spice Cabinet"
    If it is a bacterial thing in his stomach, calendula would help with gut problems.
    If it continues, he should see a doctor. There are other GI problems that can be causing it.
    Good luck.

    My husband was infamous for his gas, even as a kid. Come to find out, he had Celiac-Sprue - no wonder! Once he changed his diet, most of his issue was solved.

    Once you've ruled out health issues, perhaps a daily routine of Kegels will help his muscle control.

    I wrote a hub on this topic, and I expect others have as well. You'll get a more thorough answer by reading them.

    Try to eliminate any possible causes of the problem; dairy products, beans (that one so famous it was one of the themes of a movie!), broccoli, anything he finds difficult to digest. Sometimes, taking digestive enzyme supplements with large meals (not snacks and not usually breakfast) can help. Among dairy products, milk is a particular problem for some because the lactose in it is difficult for adults to deal with. Finally, a lot of people find probiotic supplements (supplements of "friendly bacteria") helpful - but they need to be taken away from food with a cold drink, not hot.

    The herbs already mentioned can help too. That's about it for helping the underlying problem, which is digestive problems. For fast relief from the immediate problem, some people find that charcoal biscuits or tablets help. By the way, one inevitable side effect of charcoal supplements is black stools. No surprise there, perhaps, if you're eating charcoal!

    Avoid spicy foods, do exercise regularly, avoid fixy drinks..

    Be thankful. If he didn't pass gas, he would look like a balloon.

    Other than checking for some medical problem like some of the other respondents have mentioned. 

    But, as a man, I guess the best thing for him to do would be to let them rip! ;-)

    (Tongue in check note: Does this question have anything to do the question that asks why most of the hubbers are women?)

    I use 3 products - charcoal capsules, TUMS, or Beano.  They work for me.
