4. Apple Cider Vinegar
Often used for the treatment of indigestion, apple cider vinegar can also help to relieve excess gas. Apple cider vinegar will soothe your stomach while providing you with almost instant relief from gas. Add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water (you might want to add some honey to make it more palatable) and drink once each day, usually after dinner.
This common kitchen spice can also offer you some relief from gas and stomach pains. Add roasted cardamom to your vegetable dishes, beans, and rice dishes to help prevent gas, or you can chew on the whole cardamom pod after meals to relive gas. Another method is to make cardamom tea by boiling a few cardamom pods and a slice of ginger root along with one teaspoon of fennel seeds. Boil for three minutes, strain, and drink two or three cups each day.
Speaking of ginger, this is another terrific herb for relieving gas. Drink ginger tea after each meal or chew on some fresh ginger root slices after each meal to help stop gas almost instantly. If you are out and about and can’t get some ginger tea, you can rub a bit of ginger essential oil on your abdomen after eating.
This herb has long been used to ease stomach pains, but most people don’t know that peppermint will also stop gas. Drink peppermint tea after each meal or chew on fresh peppermint leaves after every meal. Another method would be to put two drops of peppermint essential oil in half a cup of cold water and drink twice each day for super-fast relief from excess gas.
This is an old fashioned remedy to relieve gas that works quite well. This remedy comes to us from Ayurvedic medicine and has been used for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years to relieve stomach pains and excess gas and bloating. Mix one teaspoon of carom (ajwain) seeds and one teaspoon of black salt in one cup of buttermilk. If you can’t find carom (not to be confused with cardamom) seeds, you can use celery seeds. Mix well and drink once each day, preferably just before bedtime.
