Hi
Our stomach is like a machine. If properly not oiled the machine will start give problems. Just like that the machine should be put into use very regularly.

Even our stomach is also like that.
If proper food at proper time is not given to our stomach it will start producing a liquid, called hydro choleric acid. That acid will produce gas when contacts with belly or stomach flesh. It is the indication that your stomach needs to be filled with something solid.
If not done it will cause ulcer and in turn take to stomach cancer.

Even it you take some junk foods you may get some gas problems.
All you have to do is,
Take food in time
Take water regularly
Avoid junk food.
Keep limitations in Dal and Potato items.
If case of heavy food, don't forget to take one spoon of jeera with one glass of water.
If you have strong gas problem then consult the doctor and take some gastric tablets.
Don't take gastric tablets on your own because some are not suitable for sugar patients.

From
Govinda

Hello Anonimous friend,

Following are the Do(s) and Don't(s) for prevention:

Do(s):


1. Follow proper time schedule for eating- breakfast at 8am, lunch at 1pm, dinner at 9pm (examples)
2. Follow proper timings for going to sleep at 10pm and waking up at 6am (examples)
3. Go for workout in the morning or evening- brisk running for 45min daily
4. Chew your food properly
5. Eat patiently without making haste
6. Sit, stand or stroll for half an hour after taking food, before going to bed. This will help releasing the air that goes along with food and water via burping / belching
7. Drink water about half an hour after taking food, and drink plenty of water thereafter
8. Take plenty of fruits and salads
9. It is a good idea to slightly grill the non-vegetarian food before going for main cooking
10. Take light snacks like biscuits or chilled milk while feeling empty stomach

Don't(s):

1. Don't drink water / liquor or any liquid along with eating. Because by doing so the digestive juices will be diluted and be ineffective for breaking down the chewed food
2. Don't swallow air along with food or water while eating and drinking. That will result in flatulence
3. Don't lie-down immediately after eating food
4. Don't eat spicy, deep-fried foods, red meat, junk / fast food and saturated fats
5. Don't overeat
6. Don't eat heavy food multiple times
7. Don't cook vegetables specially leafy greens without thoroughly washing them under running water
8. Avoid being empty stomach as long as you suffer from this ailment

Your chronic gas problem will be resolved within 4 – 7 days if you follow the above routine. Right now you may take Capsule 'Ocid" – 20mg, empty stomach in the morning for 7 days.
