Flatulence / Bloating Info
"I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different."
'Flatus' is the medical word for gas generated in the stomach or bowels. Flatulence is defined in the medical literature as "flatus expelled through the anus" it is defined in turn as "marked by or affected with gases generated in the intestine or stomach; likely to cause digestive flatulence." The root of these words is from the Latin flatus - "a blowing, a breaking wind" - another descriptor which we have adopted colloquially.
It is believed that a proportion of intestinal gas may be composed of swallowed environmental air, and hence flatus is not totally generated in the stomach or bowels.
The scientific study of this area of medicine is termed flatology.
It is normal for humans to pass flatus, although the amount and the frequency may vary greatly between individuals. It is also normal for intestinal gas passed per rectum to have a characteristic feculent odour, although this too may vary in concentration. Flatus is brought to the rectum by specialised contractions of the muscles in the intestines and colon.
There are 4 general symptoms related to intestinal gas, pain, bloating and abdominal distension, excessive flatus volume, excessive flatus odour and gas incontinence. Furthermore, eructation ("an act or instance of belching", also known as "burping") is sometimes included under the topic of flatulence.
The problem may also arise from bacteria that line the gut wall- if this is the case then you could benefit from taking supplements containing ‘friendly bacteria’ (e.g. primadophilus reuteri) which help outcompete the harmful bacteria causing the flatulence.
Here’s a list of carminative herbs (carminative refers to a preparation of herbs that either prevent the formation of gas or facilitate the expulsion of gas) commonly and traditionally used in kitchen gardens for cooking, as essential oils or as teas or tinctures to relieve flatulence: angelica, aniseed, asafoetida, basil, caraway, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, dill, eucalyptus, fennel, garlic, ginger, hops, lemon balm, liquorice, lovage, marjoram, motherwort, mustard, nutmeg, onion, oregano, parsley, pepper, pennyroyal, peppermint, rosemary, saffron, sage, spearmint, thyme, valerian, wintergreen and wormwood.
Also, hold back on the raw onion.
I have been taking these for a while now - one a day - and I am sure they help me not to catch colds. I used to always be susceptible to having colds - and always seemed to be on anti-biotics. They certainly suit me.
