FLATULENCE! SILENT BUT DEADLY..


You have heard the statement, "You are what you eat." It is important to eat healthy food. Eating healthy food not only shapes our body and our mind but it also affects the body's digestive system.


Smelly Farts or Flatulence can be related to food intolerance, high-fiber foods, certain medications and antibiotics, and constipation. More serious causes are bacteria and infections in the digestive tract. Excessive wind, smelly farts, and bad flatulence could be caused by something in your diet.


A Closer Look:

1. Organic material produces methane when decomposing

2. Food rich in sulfur is broken down into stinky compounds called sulfides. (sulfur-rich foods like meat, eggs, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower)

3. Intestinal bacteria in the bowel help digestion by fermenting food components which

produces gas.


Reality. The truth be told

Humans fart on average 5-15 times per day. Even though it's a natural part of life, excessive smelly flatulence can be embarrassing and make socialization difficult. Dietary changes can cure excessive smelly flatulence because it is linked to specific foods, which are fermented by gut bacteria in the large intestine. Microbes release gas as they break down undigested food particles. Eventually, enough gas accumulates and is released by the anus.


Reset your Gut Health: 70% of your immune system is in the intestine/gut.

1. Eat a variety of plant-based foods.

2. Make fiber your friend

3. Include probiotics

4. Decrease or eliminate sugar and processed foods

5. Decrease artificial sweeteners

6. Drink plenty of water

7. Exercise and get quality sleep


"THE ROAD TO HEALTH IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTESTINES."
