Very Gassy Bowel

I have a very gassy bowel... I read that we should pass gas about 15times a day, I guess I do it maybe 10 times that amount or even more. Sometimes it can be quiet odorful and embarrasing. I also feel quite gassy a lot of the time. It seems to follow no pattern, although a night on the beer often makes it worse.

A little background... I picked up food poisioning about 1.5 yrs ago. This developed into a very nasty case of Gastroenteritis which made me loose a lot of weight and had me in hospital. I have had 3 colonoscopys, the initial one revealed a mild colitis but the most recent (6 months ago) gave me the all clear.

I mentioned this problem to my gastroentroligist at the last colonscopy. She said it was natural and should clear up. However it shows no improvement. I also eat pretty well and i do take probiotioc drinks and plenty of natural supplements. I exercise well and in other ways feel like im in perfect health. Maybe its worth mentioning that I decided not to take any drugs, not even a paracetamol since my previous sickenss

Any advice to eliminate or reduce this problem would be greatly appreciated

Re: Very Gassy Bowel

I would begin taking a very high quality probiotic for a while, to get your intestinal flora back into tip top shape. One called Custom Probiotics 1 is the one my family uses. I order it online, not sure of any stores that stock it.

Good luck.
