Almost everyone knows flatulence – from time to time there is a pinch in the stomach and air escapes. Bloating is usually harmless, but it is usually very uncomfortable when the air goes out in public. Sometimes flatulence is also very painful. In most cases, they are triggered by eating too quickly, intolerance to food, or stress.
Homeopathic remedies have a gently regulating effect on the digestive organs, so that air does not accumulate or can be expelled without pain.

What is flatulence?
As part of normal digestive activity, gases are produced in the intestines, which are transported away via the blood vessels or exhaled via the lungs. However, if more gas is produced than usual, this leads to bloating. The abdomen is bloated from gas buildup in the intestines. This can sometimes be very painful. And intestinal gases are released in the form of flatulence. The discharge of flatulence is very unpleasant for those affected, as it often smells bad and is audible.
As a rule, the causes of flatulence are of a harmless nature and are based on diet and lifestyle. Sometimes, however, food intolerances or illnesses are the triggers. Bloating can also be an unwanted side effect of a number of medications.
- Foods that cause gas (cabbage, legumes)
- irritable bowel syndrome
- Fast food that involves swallowing a lot of air
- Food intolerance (e.g. lactose, fructose or histamine)
- antibiotic treatment
- Chronic inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis)
When to go to the doctor
If, in addition to flatulence, other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain occur, a doctor should be consulted for clarification. Even if you do not normally suffer from flatulence and are now very severely and suddenly affected by flatulence, it makes sense to see a doctor. If you have blood in your stool, feel exhausted, or lose weight despite not changing your eating habits, your doctor should investigate whether a serious medical condition is causing the flatulence.
In order to prevent flatulence, it makes sense to take a closer look at your own diet. Very specific products often lead to this condition and not using them immediately alleviates the flatulence.
