    who is the ignorant idiot that wrote this article??

  • Andrew Markey

    Why Bewildered?Is there any problem in that article? Please let me inform because I am going to suggest this article to one of my friend who has been suffering from gas pain.

  • Bailey Mozambique

    There is no ignorance, only knowledge in this article. All things mentioned will work to some degree. Ignore ‘bewildered’ , it’s purpose is to troll.

  • Jim


  • bewildered also

    Why would someone who obviously is not a native English speaker attempt to write an article in English? At least have a native English speaker proofread your work. While the information may be correct, the delivery makes it painful to read and I eventually just moved on to one of the many articles with the same if not better information. You should care more about your target as audience if you choose to author such an article.

  • bewildered also

    The ignorance comment obviously speaks towards the author’s lack of command of the English language. This article reads worse than a poor auto-translation version. An author needs to connect with his or her target audience. Poor language abilities works to alienate, the opposite effect. It even makes me wonder about the editorial integrity of this entire site.

  • bewildered also

    Wow, this entire site reads as bad as this article. You all really need an English speaking proofreader.

  • This is wrong

    Lemons contain citric acid, not hydrochloric acid. Consuming hydrochloric acid is dangerous and can kill you. Also, my doctor told me to stay away from garlic when I asked. Based on that and the errors in the rest of the article, I would not recommend this to anyone.

  • Shelly

    I’ll say it definitely works. I’m not even through the first option, glass of hot water, and my gas is already gone. And it was a pretty wicked case. It woke me up at 5 am and it’s never done that before. Thanks for the help because I had nothing in the house to help me. No gas pills, no antacids of any kind, and I really didn’t want to leave at 5 am. But I think I’ve found a better solution anyway.

  • llfowler90

    Very helpful!! I was in horrific pain. I took gas med and anticad. I did the water thing which made me burp and helped for a few minutes of relief!

  • Megan:3

    Worked .. I started eating slowly. And after a while my pain was curing… :3

  • Dominick

    For FAST RELIEF from Gas Pains, LIE ON YOUR STOMACH!! Within a few seconds, you’ll feel your abdomen bubble up and you’ll pass gas. Lie on your side and you’ll feel it bubble up again. Then switch back to your stomach. Then lie on your other side. Repeat as necessary.

  • travis

    The yogurt helps alot

  • Hannah

    I drank the lemon juice. It helped!!

  • Megan Hunt

    I find Yoga helped faaaaast! Hot air rises.. So downward dog is your best option! If looking for quick release!

  • SafiS

    Soon as I l started drinking the water I felt ease, and burped right after…. I waited and took something els just in case but the water helped just fine!!!!

  • Steve

    The grammar is particularly awful, my friend. And I think “galloping” hot water is supposed to be gulping, although ‘at a gallop’ means quickly, so either the writer used some sort of speech to text program and has an accent, or may be confused about the words gallop and gulp. Regardless, I think what bewildered is talking about is the grammar. Although the context is great, some people have a hard time reading grammatically incorrect literature. Especially when the degree of error is as substantial is it is in the article. My advice would be to study the English language extensively, because anyone who enjoys writing should be doing it correctly. No offense intended here, just constructive criticism. All in all, the article helped me, and I’m sure it will help others. Thanks to the writer for writing it.

  • Hafizur

    Hello Steve,

    I really apologies to you for this kind of mistake. I’m also happy that
    you have given a constructive criticism. It will help me to lessen my
    mistake in grammatical learning. Will surely work hard in learning
    extensive grammar and English language. Thank you for your comment, it
    will help me out in near future.

  • Chris Simko

    Helpful! What is fenugreek?

  • Tiffany

    I just gulped a cup of hot water, hopefully it will work. Immediately it made me burp and pass gas. Ugh, the pain!!!

  • Vishal

    Well hot water works,But the main problem in today’s time is bad eating habits and no proper schedule whatsoever. 1.Eat fresh cooked food rather than frozen. 2. There is an old saying that we all have heard of “early to bed early to rise……” 3. Never skip your breakfast and never eat loads in dinner and always keep 4 hours gap between dinner and sleep mostly it makes you more chubby but if it goes on for long time than its gonna be a problem . 4. Go for herbal tea rather than coffee. 5. Sometimes smoking too make situation worse if you already suffering from gas. 6. Physical exercise too helps but yoga do wonders. 7. Generally people don’t know this but consuming scotch and soda for very long time create problems. 8.Keep yourself tension free as much as possible. 9. And never try to keep farts in your body let is pass.. 10. Eat ice-cream may be 4-5 scoops after dinner that too help sometimes. I hope it may help.

    Thank you so much – I woke up at 4 am with extreme pain, tried drinking some hot water, and the gas passed through me after sitting for somewhere around one hour. It put up quite a fight!

  • Krisdena Abbott
