Eat less gassy foods: like beans, cabbage, greens, cornbread, etc. and don't chew gum or drink carbonated beverages. Try activated charcoal (charco-caps is one brand). Good luck!

Take also live probiotics half an hour prior to your meal x3/day like Lacto- and Bifidobacterias to normalize your GI flora. The problem might also be in overgrowing not friendly bacterias in your guts.

I agree! Good idea. Maybe even Kefir, Ecaterina?
