A Conversation for Farts and Flatulence

I noticed that your guide entry about farts didn't mention that farts are also caused or at least given momentum by restriction to the intestinal area of the body. eg. wearing belts too tight, or very tight garments around the waist for long periods of time. It tend to speed up the process of breaking wind. Another not so well known fact is that when women wear high heels, it displaces their body's natural position and causes many ill side-effects of which farting is one.

I suffer from bad flatulence, which has resulted in me doing a considerable amount of reading around on the subject.

Many Medical Conditions are known to cause excess gas. They include: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Colon or Rectal Cancer, Peptic Ulcer Disease, Lactose Intolerance, Coeliacs Disease, Malabsorptive Syndromes, Diverticular Disease, Diabetes, Gallstones, Parasitic Infections, Splenic Flexture Syndrome, AIDS/HIV (and related conditions) and Cirrhosis of the Liver.

On quitting smoking some people suffer from excessive flatulence. Smoking speeds up the movement of food through the digestive system, so while the body readjusts after stopping smoking excessive flatulence can result.

As we get older, we tend to lose muscle control. Medical conditions like MS accelerate this loss of control over various muscle groups. This leads to an increased amount of uncontrollable flatulence events.

Certain medications are known to have flatulence as a side-effect. They include:
Antiviral, Antibiotics, Cholesterol lowering medications and Protein Supplements.

Certain foods such as kidney beans and artichokes cause an overproduction of bacteria in the stomach, which can in turn lead to excessive flatulence. Food containing a lot of fibre such as baked beans and brown rice are also common causes of flatulence.

When flying flatulence can sometimes be more of a problem due to the change in pressure, as a result of the altitude. Trying to suppress wind can be painful, but the flatulence filter cushions mean that this is not necessary.

I recently came across a flatulence cushion, called a GasBGon, which has a carbon filter to remove the smell and a foam muffler to reduce the noise. The cushions can be found at www.GasBGon.co.uk. I am now quite sure how the guy who designed the thing came up with the idea, but itcertainly works.

Ballet.

I did ballet for many years and it often caused wind. I have heard from many people that yoga has the same effect! I think it's all the bending. Try doing a plie (pli-ay! don't have an accent!) while holding in a fart.....smiley - erm
