Any Natural Cures For Trapped Wind, Left Sided Discomfort

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Not a nice subject, but is there anything to take that will help deal with trapped wind? Since just before my diagnosis it was a real problem and now, having been recently glutened, the same feeling of trapped wind in the descending colon and sometimes the left side of my abdomen down from about tummy button level looks more distended than the right.  It is so uncomfortable and seems to get worse as the day progresses.  Does anyone have any tips? Thanks

If you have room to move around, even just walk, that will help.  If you can lay down - lay on your back and press downward on the "trapped" section.  Maybe move to lay on 1 side for a minute or two and then the other.  Put your legs up a wall to elevate your hips above your stomach area.

As Karen said, abdominal massage can help.  You can also lay on the ground with your face down, cup your belly with both forearms, and roll back and forth a little.  Also, laying on your left side helps things escape more naturally due to the placement of the exit route.
