Hey everyone just wanted to ask the question to you all has there been anything for you that's helped really good with gas? That is my number one issue that I deal with on a day to day basis I've even given stool samples to see if it may be bad bacteria that is causing all this gas but it came back negative.The only thing I've really taken for gas at times is Gas-X but that only lets them out more easily I wanted to try Digestive Avangetage's Gas preventative product but I hesitated cause I noticed in the ingredients that it contains some milk and wheat in it.I just want to limit the amount of gas that I get where I wont feel so much anxiety when I get it cause I feel it's excessive.I would love to read your experiences and advice on any products all my best and wishing you all good digestive health. :-)

Walking up and down stairs! And if I can't, just standing and doing knee to chest lifts (mimicking using the stairs movement) helps too.

Prior to my rectal cancer and IBS-like symptoms as a result, I used the stairs to get up belches. I remember having heartburn with one of my daughter's pregnancies and then years later, I had heartburn because I had gall stones (had GB out with my colon resection). So I tried the stairs trick to release gas or help it along. It does work.

I also take my hand and massage my entire large colon track, on my stomach. A nurse gave me this suggestion. I have no idea if this works or not, but I've done it ever since. She said to direct the gas up, over, down and then out. Maybe it's a mind trick but it does seem to help me also. Odd though I know. I can't do this in public!
