Flatulence, bloat, gas.
This can be a difficult problem to treat as each person differs so much, and reacts differently to remedies. There are numerous remedies but there are numbers of aspects of the patient which need to be known in order to select the most appropriate ones. The wrong remedies for the patient will simply not work. Homeopathy treats the patient, not the symptom. Below are a few rule-of-thumb first course of action remedies, which work fairly frequently. If you buy a good Materia Medica you can see the entire remedy “picture” which you can match up to the patient’s characteristics, which will help you to chose the best remedy. I use Boericke but there are quite a few around.
Gross bloat can cause damage, so it is important to try to find the causes and cures. A good place to start is finding which foods and drinks cause problems and then avoiding them altogether.
