Oh yeah. I'm going there. [Wink]

I fart all of the time. I could eat nothing and still be farting. I'm also having major difficulties holding them in.

Do any of you also experience this? What can be done to help this? What are some gas-inducing foods?

I myself haven't really noticed this... LOL. Or it being as bad as you describe. But I looked up info for ya. [Smile]

"Among the most common gas-inducing foods are milk and milk products, dried beans and peas, unfermented soybean foods, oat bran, cabbage, brussels sprouts, raw carrots, celery, onions, eggplant, bananas, apples, raisins, grapes, high-fiber cereals and white wheat products."

More info about gas and what can be done about it here: http://www.nytimes.com/1990/10/04/us/health-personal-health.html?sec=health

Besides candida, also consider unbalanced gut flora, parasitic gastro-intestinal infections and food allergies.

Even after treating Candida extensively it changed nothing. I still have the same exhaust problem. Nothing says I love you like saying "I'm sleeping on the couch 7 nights a week to save you from the gas attack.

It sucks.

yeast and wheat was bad with me.

i eliminated those plus dairy and take a good probiotic.

Helps big time.

I was more of a belcher than a farter. These were MANLY burps.. like fat guy drinking a beer watching football burps.

cut out the above food additives, and no more gas.

hope that helps (?)


Good luck with the toots :I

I developed an unpleasant gas problem about two years ago when I suddenly became lactose intolerant. Any milk, yogurt, ice cream or other dairy products, including calcium supplements resulted in hours of uncontrollable...well, you said it....farting.

Now I have the fart-all pill.....Allicin. I have to take two a day, Zhang's Allicin. It gives me the worst (garlic) gas imaginable. I finally figured out the only way I can tolerate it is to take both together just before I go to sleep so we sleep through the unpleasant side effects.

I do get giggly though when I think of using this as a weapon, if the need ever arose....like passing out 2-3 pills to everyone at an IDSA hearing, or taking a few before an obligatory Sunday dinner at the mother in law's....

I'm sure my teenaged sons could find some good instances when these supplements will come in handy.

So, you haven't smelled a fart until you have smelled a Zhang's Allicin fart.

Yeast and/or dairy intolerance would be my guess

Is it worse after you have sugar/refined carbs?

Sure, it's good to address candida and avoid wheat/gluten as all that really affects our progress but still, with beano, I'll bet you'll see some relief. You take it before a meal.


Or - are you taking other digestive enzymes, too?

BTW, after useless wheat, some of the best foods for us can add to gas: broccoli is one; beans, too. Those are very nutritious. Don't stop those unless you have a fancy evening out kicking up your heels (don't we all just wish?).

What a great web site.

If we can't tell eachother, who can we tell-

As I get older I occasionally have slips. I guess I need to do some sphincter exercises. Funny though, as I age I just don't care either who hears it.

It sounds like your problem is not that, but others gave great possibilities.


Better out then in-

I think flatulance can be caused by many many things - most of them already listed.

This is a very enjoyable thread, I must say.

We taught my (now 20 year old) daughter when she first started to speak to say "flatulate" It was so funny to hear her say it. These days the kids just rip them off. Nothing embarasses them. She farts like a druck driver and then laughs hysterically!

My five year old loves to fart, she got that from her father laughing at her. And, talk about rotten!!! She is really rotten (smelling that is)!!

She will even beg you to come in the bathroom to smell her......YUCK!!

My son Ryan got a detention as a freshman in high school for farting in class. No word of a lie. I am saving the pink slip to display at his wedding someday.

Thier reasoning was that he and another boy were doing it purposefully just to be disruptive.

Tracy,

That's good to save it, lol! My little sister used to have really bad gas/stomach pains before she had jaw surgery (she had an 'open bite' which caused her not to be able to chew her food properly).

She farted in class (she had perfected the silent fart years before having dealt with it her whole life, but they couldn't do surgery until she was done growing) one day and she said it was REALLY bad!

The teacher was talking (this was a really boring teacher, I had her too) and just stopped and looked around.

She narrowed her eyes on a student who was often disruptive.

She told him if he EVER did that again, he would have a detention, ect. She opened the windows and scowled at the kid again who swore he did not do it.

My sister wasn't going to speak up because she couldn't help it, but felt bad for the kid!

Fortunately the next year she had surgery and it stopped.

Take care,
Ocean

ocean, that was so cute about your sister doing it in class; i can't stop laughing! [lol] [lol] [lol]

reminds me of the time on my sister's 2nd bout with cancer in hospital. i came to visit and released one; wasn't loud but boy was it STINKY!

she said, Betty, i don't mind you doing it but NOT the gas since i can't leave my hospital bed!! [Smile]

wish i had her back; she passed away from breast cancer 10 yrs. ago 8-25-99....

LMAO.....my whole family just groans at me ever since I've been on the Allicin. I dont' know what I'm going to do when I go back to work; they aren't the kind you can kind of sit on and squelch under your butt and hope the couch absorbs them.

They just slowly and stealthily permeate the whole room.

Bettyg,

LOL!! Yes, when you can't leave your room, that's when it's the worst! My mom is a teacher and has..umm..talked about having gas while trying to teach and moving around the room!

I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's passing. Both of my mom's sisters have had breast cancer (and her mother [Eek!] ), fortunately they all survived, but one of the sisters that had it also had a very rare uterine cancer and while she has survived it, she is missing stomach parts and intestines and has lost so much because of it.

There is a lot of cancer on my mom's side, it's such a horrendous disease, I wish they had better treatment for it.

Take care,
Ocean
