Remedies for Trapped Wind
Excess wind is never a pleasant thing, though everyone experiences it at one time or another. It can happen as the result of a stomach upset or from gas-producing food. It can also be one of the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a dysfunctional disorder of the gastrointestinal tract. There are a number of ways that are said to relieve wind in the system.
Over-the-counter products containing simethicone have been found to be beneficial in relieving trapped wind. Simethicone will help to break up gas bubbles so that they can be more easily eliminated from the system.
Activated charcoal tablets are another way to relieve trapped wind, as the tablets will bind with gas. They should be taken before and after meals. But the tablets will also bind with medications and supplements, so charcoal should not be taken with them.
Drinking peppermint tea will have a calming effect on the intestines, allowing the gas to escape more easily. Peppermint tea is also good for babies with gas problems.
Peppermint in this form is also beneficial for helping with excess trapped gas. The oil assists the body in absorbing the gas.
This is another tea that can be beneficial in relieving trapped wind. It will help with digestion as well. And colicky babies will get benefit from chamomile tea, just as they will with peppermint tea.
Pancreatic Enzyme Tablets
Another way of helping to eliminate trapped wind is by taking pancreatic enzyme tablets. These tablets will assist with digestion and calm an upset stomach.
Betaine Hydrochloric Acid
Taking one or two of these tablets with any meal of large portions will help the body to digest the food and relieve trapped gas that can result from eating a big meal. These tablets will also help with stomach upsets.

Ways to Avoid excessive Gas
The best way to relieve excessive gas is not to get it in the first place. Certain foods, such as broccoli and beans, are gas-producing and should be avoided or at least curtailed by those individuals with excess gas problems.
Do not eat fast or gulp down food. Swallowing air can cause gas to develop. Taking time to chew food properly and eat more slowly may help with an excess gas problem.
Constipation can create problems with gas as proper elimination is not taking place. If constipation problems are dealt with, this will also relieve trapped gas.
