Warning Abdominal pain, bloating, and gas may be a sign of a serious digestive disorder, so consult your doctor before attempting to treat the symptoms on your own. Step 1: Avoid food known to produce gas Avoid foods known to produce gas, such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, turnips, dried beans, onions, garlic, leeks, and, for people who are lactose intolerant, milk products. Tip Over-the-counter aids are a quick fix, but preventative measures such as diet modifications, exercise, or stress-reduction techniques may prove more effective. Step 2: Avoid gas-producing dietary products Avoid carbonated drinks, olestra, and sorbitol, which can also produce excess gas. Chewing gum can cause you to swallow air, which contributes to gas formation. Step 3: Reduce your stress Reduce your stress levels, which can cause bloating. Take time to relax and calm your nerves with techniques such as listening to music or meditation. Step 4: Exercise during menstrual cycles Women who have bloating before or during their menstrual cycle should exercise to eliminate excess fluids and eat high-fiber foods to prevent constipation. Step 5: Consult your doctor Ask your doctor about any additional steps you should take to eliminate bloating. Did You Know? According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, most people pass gas at least 14 times a day.
