The action of friendly flora on foods we eat produces intestinal gas. It is normal for some gas to be produced. Excessive gas is usually caused by imbalances in the friendly flora or digestion issues with certain foods. Digestive enzymes can aid in the reduction of intestinal gas. By altering intestinal microbes, fiber and probiotics can temporarily increase intestinal gas.
Bloating is an abnormal sensation of fullness in the gastrointestinal tract caused by an accumulation of gas in the abdomen. Bloating causes stomach pressure and contributes to the development of a hiatal hernia. It may even put a strain on the heart. Bloating indicates that the ileocecal valve is swollen and inflamed and needs to be closed.
Carminatives are herbs that are used to relieve gas and bloating. By increasing blood flow to the abdominal cavity, these herbs relieve intestinal gas. The majority of the gas produced in the intestines is absorbed into the bloodstream and excreted via the lungs. This is aided by carminative herbs. They also help digestion by reducing gas production.
Petrification is occurring in the digestive tract when bloating is severe and accompanied by foul belching. Activated charcoal can be extremely beneficial in treating this condition. Chinese Anti-Gas is also effective.
