Don’t Let Flatulence Get You Down
For those of us who suffer from flatulence, that is to say excessive wind, life can be tough and at times get us down due to the sheer embarrassment of the nature of this condition. But living with flatulence doesnt have to be as there are some simple remedies to help relieve and reduce the amount of gases our bodies produce.
The typical symptoms of flatulence include frequent passing of wind, which often has a bad smell and is loud in volume, pain, gurgling of the stomach, acid like burning pains in the stomach and depression. The majority of these symptoms can be countered by simply making some basic changes in our diet. Eating a healthy and balanced diet instead of opting for those foods high in fat and sugars will have great results and the effects are almost immediate.
Hiding away from the world due to embarrassment is the wrong approach but it is easier said than done when it comes to talking about the problem of flatulence. Women in particular may be too ashamed to go along to the doctors in order to discuss the issue. Constantly trying to mask the problem and shy away from the lingering smells can and will take its toll so it comes as no surprise that those who have a bad case of flatulence also suffer from depression.
For those of us who know someone who may be suffering from excessive wind, it is far better to offer support rather than be tempted to criticise and poke fun. Living with flatulence can be hell so a supportive shoulder to cry on can make all the different and even encourage the sufferer to seek medical advice.
