When I first started a vegetarian diet, I dealt with a lot of gas. For about 2-3 weeks, I was “fart girl” and I had to excuse myself at every turn. But, trouble doesn’t last always and my the gas stopped. Once you consider it, many vegetarian virgins are allowing our systems to heal from years of Friday nights at the rib shacks, steakhouses and Sunday afternoons at grandma’s house.
Here are some remedies that helped me out:
Charcoal tablets help to relieve gas caused by high fiber foods, especially beans and legumes. Also, they help to clear toxins from the body. Don’t overuse charcoal tablets because taking too much can cause constipation and loss of energy.
Papaya has natural digestive enzymes that break down proteins to eliminate gas.
Ginger is an herbal enzyme that treats upset stomach and prevents colon cancer. It is also used for colds, the flu, migraines, arthritis pain, and menstrual cramps.
