Gas Prevention Diet

It’s true, everyone passes gas! But for some people, excessive gas can be embarrassing and cause painful bloating. Most of the time, gas occurs naturally as a result of the digestive process. While there are some specific foods that tend to produce more gas than others, certain people may simply have a more sensitive digestive system. If you are concerned about gas, you should see a physician to rule out any abnormal causes of gas, such as lactose intolerance or other functional disorders. If the possibility of functional disorders has been eliminated, the following guidelines may help you alleviate some of your gas pain and odors.

Food Recommendations

Although gas occurs naturally, its can be controlled or lessened with a gas prevention diet. As with any diet, there are certain foods to avoid, and there are others that work with the body to maintain a healthy, balanced digestive system.
