Suggest treatment for flatulence

default
Posted on Fri, 18 Jul 2014
Question: Hi, there. I am suffering from flatulence from almost 2 yrs now. I am on a limited diet due to this. i have undergone almost all allopethic treatment (for giardia infection, endoscopy, celiac disease test; all negative) ayurvedic treatments (panchakarma process for digestive tract detoxification). I am religiously avoiding gas producing food, wheat (which cause gas to me) beans, certain fruits, resins, cashews, eggs, dairy products. It has been 6 months i am doing yoga for complete 1 hour. ! week back i have started jogging for complete 1 hr. Even after that i am not recovering. Even a small amt of Wheat (and maida) is causing gas and flatulence.

I have lost almost 8 kgs now (2 yrs back weight was 58 kg now 50 kg), hairfall has started, loosing confidence, less interest in job.

Kindly help me in getting rid of this problem.

P.S. its foul smell (flatulence) which i feel, no stomach pain or other gas related symptoms. motions are proper. sometimes not proper when i eat wheat/ dairy product


thanks, XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would like to advise that you should take Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30mg.
A probiotic along with digestive enzyme preparation containing pepsin and fungal diastase after meals will have added benefits.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Thanks.
