Gas Remedy - Ginger

Intestinal gas is an embarrassing and annoying situation that many people experience on a regular basis. Gas and bloating is, perhaps, one of the main health concerns that human beings living in the Western world complain of.

Estimates show we expel gas at least 14 times a day. That adds up to almost 4 pints of air! But, while these statistics may be the “norm,” it is certainly not a healthy balance. What can we do about all this excess air? Below is a list of a few of my favorite remedies for gas and bloating.

1. Organic Ginger

Drinking ginger tea and eating fresh ginger root are two of the best remedies for gas. Add small amounts of ginger (dried or fresh) to your food, as desired. You can also take a teaspoon of fresh grated ginger before meals for gas relief.

2. Organic Caraway Seeds

Caraway seeds help ease gas, indigestion and cramping, all while stimulating proper digestion. Try adding more of this spice to your meals, particularly if they are the foods that are known to cause gas.

3. Organic Garlic

This hot bulb is a great home remedy for gas, because you probably have a small jar of this spice in your kitchen right now. However, for best results, using fresh garlic is recommended.

4. Organic Dandelion Tea

A common weed, dandelion has numerous health benefits, one of which is relieving gas. Drink as a tea or add it dried as a spice to your meals.

5. Organic Parsley


Adding more fresh parsley to your diet is another great remedy for gas. Either freshly minced or as a dried spice, add parsley to foods that may contribute to intestinal gas to help prevent the problem.

6. Activated Charcoal

Charcoal has an intense absorption capacity. You can try taking a charcoal supplement before eating, this can help relieve gas and bloating before it starts.

7. Perform a Colon Cleanse

Performing a colon cleanse is a great first step at improving your overall colon health, which in turn may provide gas relief. I recommend performing a 7-day colon cleanse, and then continue taking an oxygen colon cleanser 2-3x weekly, to help aid the body in ridding itself of toxins and gas.

8. Consider a Harmful Organism Cleanse

A large portion of the world’s population have some sort of harmful organism living inside their body. Taking an herbal supplement, such as Paratrex, will help aid the body in getting rid of these gas-causing invaders.

9. Take a Probiotic Supplement

Taking a probiotic supplement or eating foods with probiotics in them, is a great way to get rid of the most common symptoms of gas. In fact, probiotics have many health benefits. Consuming more beneficial bacteria supports healthy colon function.

10. Incorporate Proper Eating Habits Into Your Life

Avoid foods that are known to cause gas and indigestion. This includes fried foods, processed foods and other processed forms of sugar. You may also want to explore your sensitivities to the common foods that cause gas, including wheat products, milk and high-fat foods. Other foods that can lead to gas include beans, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, apples, corn, oats, potatoes, most dairy products, pears, prunes, peaches and ice cream.

    Great post, ginger really is a wonder root. We know that the more fibre we eat, the more gas we tend to get. Just a natural part of digestion.

    Good call. Health articles obviously want to steer you away from fried foods and sugar but you’ll have twice as much gas if you eat a lot of vegetables.

    Whoever wrote this article is obviously trying to discredit the benefits of organic produce. Raw garlic to RELIEVE gas? That is some grade A contradictory information. Many of these will work but garlic will make it a lot worse
