Eliminate cause: Flatulence is excess gas produced in the digestive track due to usually something eaten that does not agree with you. Beans, cabbage and onions are common causes but so is gluten and dairy. I usually have people do an elimination diet of what they think is the offending agent and see what happens.

Swallowed air/ diet: The digestive system is an elaborate tube from the mouth to the anus. All people swallow air when they eat & some take in more than others. You either belch it up or create flatus. If you eat foods that your body doesn't digest completely, the germs in your gut will & they create flatus in the process. Keep a food diary & keep track of what makes you gassy & avoid them. ...Read more

You might also try over the counter simethicone products. ...Read more
Depends on the cause: Some causes of flatulence, such as swallowing air, is only gotten rid of by either changing how we eat to avoid swallowing air, or by passing it. However, I have had some success in recommending eating raw, fresh parsley as a means of reducing the flatulence. Parsley pills did not seem to be as effective. ...Read more
What do you advise if I had which were growling stomach and excessive flatulence. What could've caused this?
Good question but...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks), a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut.
