Flatulence is an expulsion of a mixture of gases produced in the digestive tract of an individual. It is also known as “Passing Gas”, “Breaking Wind” or “Farting”. The noise associated with this problem is caused by the vibration of the buttocks. Common causes include food allergies, esophageal disorders, consumption of fatty food items, dairy products, high legume diet or carbonated drinks, bacterial or fungal infection and so on.

Irritable bowel syndrome and intake of antibiotics may also result in this problem. Symptoms of this problem include abdominal bloating, pain and belching.


You can mix lemon juice (1 teaspoon) and baking soda (half teaspoon) in a cup of cool water. Drinking this mixture after each meal can provide the desired results. You should not use ice water in the preparation of this mixture as it can result in the formation of gas.


One of the best natural remedies for flatulence is turmeric. You can use turmeric powder in preparing different food items. Intake of these items can help in reducing the problem of gas. Another alternative is to mix turmeric powder and salt in a glass of lukewarm water and drink this solution to obtain the desired results.

Juniper is another natural remedy. You can chew juniper berries after each meal to obtain relief from the problem of flatulence. It can also help in the treatment of problems such as upset stomach and loss of appetite.


You can take peppermint in the form of tea or candy. You can boil fresh peppermint leaves in water for a period of 5 to 10 minutes to prepare tea. Intake of this tea multiple times in a day may provide quick relief. This natural remedy should not be used if you have heartburn or reflux problems.


You can use chamomile to obtain relief. Intake of chamomile can improve digestion by increasing bile flow. Chamomile is rich in flavonoids.
