My first concern with your question is how long have you been having problems? If this is a chronic issue, I worry that there may be an underlying medical conditon that requires treatment.

Occasional gas is one thing and may be treated fairly safely with over-the-counter and natural remedies. If this has been persisting for over 1 week, I would recommend that you get checked out by a physician. It could be something as simple as lactose intolerance or eating gas-producing foods in excess such as broccoli or beans, or something more serious. Irritable bowel syndrome can cause gas and bloating. A blockage in the gastrointestinal tract may also cause problems. A blockage could be caused by a tumor, so that is another reason to make sure you are in the clear before trying natural remedies.

As for natural remedies, my first recommendation is that you check out our pages here on dedicated to gas and gas pains where you can read about chewing, dandelion, garlic, parsley, cumin, and angostina bitters as remedies. Ginger, peppermint and allspice are also often cited as gas remedies.
