Eliminate Intestinal Gas
With Colon Cleansing

Intestinal gas, also called stomach gas, includes belching, bloating and flatulence. Occasional stomach gas can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing, but does not pose any health concerns.

However, if you have chronic gas, it may be an indication of something more serious.

The information on this page will help you determine...

  • What stomach gas is

  • The causes of stomach gas

  • Stomach gas symptoms

  • Complications of stomach gas

  • Stomach gas treatments

In addition to this valuable information on intestinal gas, you will also learn how colon cleansing can play a major role in eliminating your gas and improving your overall health.

What Is Intestinal Gas?

To start with...everyone has stomach gas. In fact, the National Institute of Health reports that most people produce about 1 to 3 pints of gas in a day, and pass gas about 14 times in 24 hours.

This gas is eliminated either by belching or by passing it through the rectum. Although gas is a common fact of life, it can still be uncomfortable and embarrassing.

Gas is made up of odorless vapors, including carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, and sometimes methane. The unpleasant odor of gas comes from bacteria in the large intestine that release small amounts of gases that contain sulfur.

Causes Of Stomach Gas

There are many causes of stomach gas. These include...

  • Eating foods that don’t agree with you

  • Not properly combining foods

  • Gulping air while you are eating

  • Bacteria in your intestines - This produces the majority of your gas

The combination of these factors leads to excessive stomach gas. In essence, your body is becoming less efficient at digestion, and this poor digestion leads to an increase in gas production.

Intestinal Gas Symptoms

The most common symptoms of stomach gas are...

  • Abdominal bloating - Gas build up in your stomach and intestines

  • Belching - Getting rid of excess air

  • Flatulence - Gas build up in the colon

  • Abdominal pain and discomfort

It is important to note that not everyone suffering from chronic gas will experience these symptoms; however, they are the most common.

Complications Of Chronic Intestinal Gas

As I mentioned above, stomach gas is a normal bodily function. However, chronic or excessive bloating, belching and flatulence can have serious health effects on your body.

The following complications can be a result of excessive gas...

  • Diarrhea

  • Constipation

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Weight loss

  • Abdominal or rectal pain

  • Persistent heartburn

Intestinal Gas Treatment

In order to treat stomach gas, traditional medical doctors will usually recommend one or all of the following...

  • Medicines designed to help reduce the symptoms of gas

  • A reduction or elimination of foods that cause gas - such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products and whole grains

  • Limiting high-fat foods to reduce bloating and discomfort - This helps the stomach empty faster

These recommendations are usually ineffective since the amount of gas caused by certain foods varies from one person to the next.

Effective dietary changes are only possible once you learn which foods your body can handle. This is usually done on a trial and error basis.

Colon Cleansing Is The Key

Although bloating, belching and passing gas are natural, when they cause pain and discomfort - it may be an indication of an underlying health problem. That problem is typically related to an unhealthy or toxic colon.

Colon cleansing is a safe, effective and natural way to eliminate your excessive stomach gas.

A colon cleanse program helps to rebalance the good and bad bacteria in your body. While at the same time, it helps to push the bacteria back into the colon where it belongs.

Colon cleansing can effectively reduce gas, by returning the colon to a healthier state - which means that it no longer takes days for food to pass through the colon. This shorter transit time means there is less time for bacteria to produce gas.

In order to achieve an optimal level of health and eliminate chronic stomach gas, cleansing your colon is a critically important step.
