Well, I have cut foods out of my diet thinking this is what has caused the smelly GAS, but I still seem to have it?  It isn't all the time, but I would say most of the time.  It is embarrassing.......help!

Have you tried cutting spices? When my stomach is upset and I eat something with garlic in it or eat salsa, p.u. when it comes out. When my stomach is not upset, though, my poop doesn't stink of these things, even though I still eat them.

You can also try cutting the gas with Beano or Gas-X or chewable gas relief tablets. It can't stink if it doesn't come out!

Chlorophyll pills used to be really popular and I think you can still get them. People used to use them to treat really bad breath that wasn't treated by just teeth brushing. I've heard that it makes your poop smell like grass, though, lol. Better a fresh-cut lawn scent than a dead skunk odor, I guess.

Also, I think smelly poops are a sign of bacterial or yeast overgrowth. Have you been tested for these things? They can be treated with probiotics (OTC) or a combination of antibiotics and probiotics if you're a tough case.

I've heard that charcoal helps with smelly gas and body odor.

The funny thing is, my stomach isn't upset!  I had my poop tested three weeks ago, and nothing.  I have not been tested for yeast overgrowth, and not sure how this is done?  My poop doesn't smell bad, it is just my gas that comes out......ugh.  I have an appointment with my gastro on 4-3-06

UGHHH i feel ya with the gas! Mine smells like sulphur and burns..but usually only when I eat something that bothers me. My IBS is usually always food or hormone triggered. I might have a yeast overgrowth tho...or a gallbladder problem. I just need to go to the doctor haha. With me, if i have those nasty farts, a D attack is sure to follow.

Yeah, it sucks! I feel so non normal......grrrrr!!!! I am taking a Hormone Therapy Drug.....Vivele Dot, but I had smely gas before that? I can go a few days with normal gas, then all of a sudden....BAM! I had it Satuday, Sunday and today. I wonder if sugar could be a trigger for me? If so, how can I cut sugar out of my diet, everything has sugar in it?

I have no pain.....and knock on wood I have not had a D attack in over three weeks. I still am worried, so I watch everything I eat.

For smell, dairy would be my worst culprit.

Hmmm, I have been eating Yogurt, but that has never seemed to bother me, but I cut all other dairy out.

Ok, yesterday afternoon the "smelly" gas came, after almost a week without...go figure....we can't predict.  The only thing I have eaten different yesterday was "strawberries"?  Has anyone had any problems eating "strawberries"? 
 
Last night I was brave, and ate a whole 9oz container of Guacomole....yum, but had heartburn last evening, and rumbling trapped gas.
 
I had a normal poo this morning, so this has been good!

People with digestive problems have issues with seeds... so yes, strawberries can be bad.  Especially for peeps with Crohn's, UC and Diverticulitis(osis).
Fruit and veggies in general cause gas.  sad

I asked my DR two weeks ago, about the very strong smell. He said it was from the inflammation in the intestine. That's all I can tell you. I have colitis, caused by antibioitcs in 2000.

Hi!  I am new to this message board and I am SO thankful to have found this thread.  I thought I was the only one to suffer from this horrible, almost continuous gas!  I feel so relieved (pardon the pun) to know I am not some kind of freak.

I was diagnosed IBS 2-3 years ago after a bout of the usual symptoms - IBS w/C - and a colonoscopy (normal), but no other tests.  Took Zelnorm (no side effects) for 3-6 months, started feeling better and stopped.  C started returning and dr. (family O.D.) said try Metamucil, etc.  Did that, then about 4 weeks ago the gas started.  dr. (same O.D.) gave Zelnorm again - helps with the C, but gas is STILL a big problem.  I can't teach (have been out of school 4 days in the past 10 because of this).  Came home from school today because it was so bad - broke down and cried in the Principal's office when I told her I had to leave (she knows about the problem). I'm staying out in the vestibule during church (when I even go), can't "be" with hubby, I am just a basket case - my clothes even smell!

I'm living on GasX pills and chewables.  I've checked my diet and it doesn't seem to matter what I eat.  It seems like 3-4 hours after I eat first thing in the morning the gas starts and just gets worse as the day goes on - by 6 or 7 in the evening I'm retreating to my study to protect hubby and the cat.

I have an appt. with my gastro (haven't seen him in 3 years), but not until 4/13.  Is there help/hope/something/anything anyone can offer me between now and then?

Thanks for listening and for any help/advice anyone can offer.

I have CD, and was told the putrid gas was caused from indigested food caused by inflammation, or an absorption problem. I would assume when the bowel is irritable, the food runs through rather quickly before it gets a chance to digest. Some foods are harder to digest than others, and some foods are well known gas producers such as cabbage, beans, brocolli, cooked onions, corn etc...If you are lactose intolerant, eating dairy may cause gas, bloating and cramping.

Does anyone have any problems with Metamusal. If I take too much, or for extended periods of time, my "butt gets irritated", raw almost, burning and itchy. Sometimes a bit of bllod, not in the stool, but when I wipe (bright red)..

does anyone ahve the same thing happen....

I'm new here so any thoughts would be of great assistance...

thanks, and have a great day

Well, each person experiences things differently. For me, Metamucil helps me because it binds up my malabsorbed fat. It makes it a lot easier to wipe and helps it from being so sticky.

But it depends on what you suffer from, are you mostly diarrhea or constipated?

Hemorrhoids can itch and burn and bleed.

If you have smelly gas it's because you need to clean your lower colon. Use a disposable enema (available at any drugstore or supermarket) to clean your lower colon of trapped stool.

Our bodies are made to process water-based foods - like fruits and vegetables - and you will have regular bowel movements if you eat only these foods. Our bodies are not made to process meat, dairy and bread and you will have irregular movements - like diarrhea and constipation - if you eat these foods.

Furthermore, stress, certain medications and hormones can cause irregular bowel movements and exercise has been known to improve bowel movements through increased metabolism. That is why a diet high in fruits and vegetables, exercise and a fiber supplement like Metamucil will help you to have a healthy bowel movement 2 to 3 times a day.

Healthy individuals following a good diet and exercise plan should still have a professional colon cleaning or "colonic" twice a year to clean the stool 'spackle' from meat, diary and bread that sticks to the walls of the colon, hardens, decomposes and produces toxins like bad breath, smelly gas, body odor, fogginess, stuffiness and headaches to weakening the immune system making us vulnerable to a cold, flu or other opportunistic viruses.

To understand the importance of a clean colon, imagine your colon as a kitchen trash can. If you throw away food in a trash can at night, let it stand in a warm kitchen all day, the rot will smell by evening and you will want to throw the trash away outside. Similarly, waste in your colon, if trapped over time in your warm body, will rot and smell the same way. When you pass gas, it's like opening the lid of that stinky kitchen trash can. As you would take the rotting garbage from the kitchen to outside, get the rotting waste from your colon to the toilet.

Take the enema, insert it into your anus, and let the water loosen the stool spackle and constipation that is causing the smelly gas (the smell is based on the type of food your body is decomposing in the colon). You might not get anything the first time but keep repeating (refill enema bottle with warm tap water) until you see the following:

* Stool pellets and flakes. This dried part could be blocking your bowel movement and the stool flakes are the spackle coming off the sides of your colon wall.

* Gas coming out with the water.

* Cramping and then bowel movements usually in liquid form.

* Dark brown water, lighter, clear.

Once the water is clear after you expel it, your lower colon is now clean. Afterwards, you may feel slightly bloated, expel some gas (the smell should be gone if your colon is clean, the gas is from the enema bottle) or may have to expel a little water but these symptoms (other than the bloating) should end in a few minutes.

If you have smelly gas, cleaning your lower colon with an enema solves the problem instantly but not permanently. You will continue to have constipation issues until you improve your diet and start exercising. Enemas are the fastest way to solve a gas or constipation problem right away. Do not forget to drink an electrolyte drink and take an acidophilus tablet after using an enema. Never use an enema if you have diarrhea.

Good luck! :)

I also suffered from awful gas and had to work in an office.....
I went to a naturalist doctor as a result of suffering from chondritis for 2 years and he also helped to treat my IBS; I had too much yeast...so I avoided all things that would be fermented or would contain yeast for 20-30 days. I ate only "real foods" ; no preservatives. It took a couple months, but I can now eat a nice spinach salad with cucumbers, onions, tomatoes. I hadn't been able to eat a salad in over 20 years. When I eat meat now is usually chicken or fish. However by cleaning out my body, I have found that I have had bad allergies to soybean which contributed to my chondritis. Gas is no longer a problem, but I think I'm developing symptoms of diverticulitis. I would like to chat with someone who knows a little more about this. It seems very painful....does anyone know what foods are bothersome with this condition :shakehehttp://www.healingwell.com/community/emoticons/shakehead.gifad:

For the person who said it is caused by undigested food, this is very true.  I have gastroparesis (stomach paralysis) and if I eat foods that hang around and don't digest, I'm in big trouble!
 
Also dairy especially yougurt is a bad culprit..After starting the need to eat only smooth textured foods, I started using a lot of yougurt and it made me feel awful and not even the gas-x helped, so watch out for that!

Smelly gas can definitely be caused by anything difficult to digest (including "healthy" food), which is magnified by anyone with a faulty digestive system.

Most carbs and fibers are a challenge, obviously beans, but also, sugar (big time for me, and this does include many fruits, the more unripe the worse), fiber (wheat bran, oats, psyllium, etc), dairy (although cultured foods like yogurt aren't as bad, unless they contain lots of sugar). Ice cream and soda, because of the air and sugar content (and the fact that they are cold, thereby slowing the digestive process)are very good gas producers.

For some, healing the digestive tract may be necessary, but for many, changing the diet will rid you of the smelly gas and help to heal more minor issues.

I have suffered for more than 30 years with this problem, which toward the end became extreme. After some dietary adjustments I have eliminated it as a concern for over a year now. And with the healing that has taken place, I have been able to reintroduce many foods back into my diet.

So keep searching, but be thorough, many people will throw up their hands when they have cut out a particular food without success, not realizing that something else they are eating is just as bad, i.e. drop sugar, but not realize that fruit. despite being healthy, can be just as much a problem. They'll eat granola, thinking it is a good source of fiber, but not realize their digestive system cannot breakdown the hard, dry, fibers in it.

Find ways to improve your digestion and you rid yourself of gas. Poor digestion can lead to damage to your intestines and damaged intestines will impair your ability to digest. It is not a viscious cycle so much as a chronic deterioration, if not reversed.

If you keep searching you'll find your solution as I did, and believe me, it's great to have it behind me, (no pun intended). Good luck!

Atleast my husband thinks its funny and for that I can be greatful for.I Also know that I only have horrible gas when I eat canned fruits,veggies,spam or tuna ! I hate that ! I also have a not tested by many doctors food allergy!!!! I am allergic to colors,Msg and Perservatives -Which is found in every can good on the planet . When I eat these The gas is so strong its actually made me barf a few times..no joke about that! I have also had a full upper GI and lower GI..Nothing!!!!So I went to Battle and I might of won this 1 for now.

I Checked out every website and library for natural herbal remedies and suppliments I could take for 50 mile radius and I have found 3 that work Gastronic DR, Digest Assist and Gasolve Relief.....I told the lady in the herbal store everything and she was not at all rude or Oh My wordy to me she also told me to start using fresh ginger and fennel when I cook and by gooley it freaking works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really hope I helped someone and I can tell u 1 thing for sure don't ever be too embarrassed to fight a problem head on ,but I am a firm Believer that Herbal remedies work a heck of alot better than most of the stuff u get from the doc's but without a buttload of side effects!

My GI recommended a product called Charco Caps to help eliminate the horrible smelling gas. I was killing my husband. It's really embarrassing especially when your children or friends are around. It's bad enough I have to put my husband through it. I also take simethicone but that doesn't work in the bowels that is for stomach gas and bloating. Doctor even tried me on an antibiotic to make sure there wasn't any bacteria growing causing the stench. Also, if you have hemorrhoids internal or external that can cause a funky smell especially if they bleed, which was also my case.

I had severe gas until I started on a digestive enzyme called PAN prescribed by my naturopathic doctor in Seattle, Dr. Jenefer Huntoon. PAN is a plant enzyme formula that digests protein, fat, carbohydrate, fiber as well as milk, wheat and sugar. Dr. Huntoon believes that IBS is often caused by an inability to digest milk, wheat and sugar. Enclosed is a link.

Hope you see improvement,

I have been helped the most with therapeutic enzymes and botanicals prescribed by Dr. Jenefer Huntoon and Bowtech Bowen gentle manipulation performed by Dr. Jenefer Huntoon a Naturopathic Physician in Seattle.

I find I have smelly gas if I take certain medications or eat yogurt. What I don't understand though is I do not get baloted or cramps at all with my gas just the smell. I have tried gas x and beano but neither one of them worked. My doctor didn't seem to know what else to use because I didn't have all the symptoms of gas just the smell.
