    Avoid Foods that may cause gas which include:

    › beans

    › vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, onions, artichokes, and asparagus

    › fruits, such as pears, apples, and peaches

    › whole grains, such as whole wheat and bran

    › soft drinks and fruit drinks

    › milk and milk products, such as cheese and ice cream, and packaged foods prepared with lactose, such as bread,

    cereal, and salad dressing

    › foods containing sorbitol, such as dietetic foods and sugar-free candies and gums

    Treatment of dyspepsia & flatulence depends on whether it may be associated with an underlying digestion problem such as a gastric ulcer, peptic ulcer disease, or gallbladder disease. Most often, the medications prescribed can relieve symptoms.

    Medications include antacids, acid-blocking medication such as H2-receptor blocks and antibiotics if you have an H.pylori infection. If your symptoms are mild or not related to a specific disorder, your doctor may recommend changes to your diet – eating small amounts of soft foods or liquids, avoiding greasy and spicy foods and eliminating all dairy products if you are lactose intolerant.

    Natural Remedies

    Natural herbs have been used for thousands of years to treat and prevent digestive irritation and discomfort. A combination of herbal ingredients are a therapeutic measure to cure indigestion and support liver and gallbladder functioning. Not only are they safe and gentle to use on the body, but also a far more suitable substitute to antacids.

    Zingiber officinale (Ginger) is a wonderful herb, traditionally used in Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine and is highly effective in relieving the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, indigestion, flatulence and dizziness.

    Two well known herbs known as Foeniculum vulgare (fennel) and Mentha piperita (mint) have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic that calms and soothes the digestive system. In addition, Pelargonium graveolens (stomach pain bush) is also an effective calmative and anti-spasmodic herb, reducing stomach cramps and pain.
