Home Remedies for Gas

A person can suffer from gas when consuming food rich in carbohydrates or eating a meal high in fat. Gas can also result from laying down to take a nap right after a meal.

You should always chew food before swallowing as this can greatly reduce your chances of getting gas. Avoid eating excess amounts of foods which cause gas: beans, onions, brussel sprouts, corn, prunes and potatoes to name a few.

Listed below are some home remedies which can be used for treating gas.

Ginger Tea for Gas

Drink a cup of ginger tea after your meal to prevent gas and bloating. To make ginger tea add a teaspoon of fresh ginger into a cup. Then fill the cup with boiling water. Cover with saucer and let stand for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain and drink.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Gas

Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 (200 ml) glass of warm water. Allow to cool at room temperature and then drink.
