Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Excessive gas can be due to consumption of oily,spicy food or normal breakdown of undigested food by harmless bacteria in the intestine.
1)Avoid having high fibre foods like beans,carbonated drinks,alcohol,caffeine.
2)Have small frequent meals.
3)Drink lots of water.
4)Consume 2 to 3 mint leaves which will help in relieving gas.
5)Take a pinch of asafetida with water.
6)Go for walk after meals.
If all this does not help you at all kindly visit a physician for evaluation.

Take Care!
