Personal Gas Production

The growl in my stomach is depressing It can’t come from hunger, I eat plenty, Fear of passing gas in public is stressing I haven’t felt this way since I was twenty. Gulping prescribed antacids by handfuls An upper GI revealed an angry stomach. I’m downing the pink stuff by spoonfuls, Hoping my inner gas level will plummet. So far, I’m not seeing any good results Bloating continues to expand my belly, While I’m tired of receiving crass insults From disgusting relief ads on the telly. If you have a suggestion, let me hear it How did you stop your gas production? Perhaps I need to develop a new spirit I'm thinking about a stomach reduction. Written October 15, 2022

No more fried foods is what a doctor told me. I cut them out and it made absolutely not one whit of difference.

If you asked ten doctors, you would've gotten ten different sure cures!

Milton this is a natural remedy that works. My wife is an RN and she shared this information 1/2 teaspoon of Coriander seeds(Dhania) 1/2 spoon cumin seed, 1 teaspoon fennel seed(Somph) 3 black pepper seeds, plus one tablespoon of ginger. Crush all this up and boil in two cups of water. For ten minutes. Strain pour wait to cool and drink. That should keep your friends from running lol. This works well Milton, good luck with the remedy, hope it works for you if you choose to try...

Thanks, Michael. I really appreciate the recipe. I don't have those herbs handy, but I'm going to get them. I'm getting pretty desperate for anything that might work. I have another week before I can see my G.I. doctor.

You need a skateboard and a match. Hey presto!… Land speed record. During my recent medical investigations, I was told that one procedure might leave me a little windy, but I should let it go and not be embarrassed. I had visions of being in the company of some really cute nurse and the ground refusing to swallow me up. Fortunately my body behaved itself… phew. Sorry about your breezy discomfort. Hope it improves. Terry

Me, too, Terry. Rico tells me I'd be right at home in Germany!

You might try a trip to Germany, where exhaust is considered a natural function of the body so nothing to be embarrassed about. . .Aloha!

Well, I certainly hope they don't sanction (or live with) the stomach discomfort that goes along with it, in my case. I did not know this, Rico. Mahalo!
