Home Remedies for Gas Pain


Gas pains can be really troublesome. The pain can be so intense that you feel it’s serious illness. The following passage provides you with the possible home remedies for gas pain relief, causes and symptoms to help you acknowledge the problem.

Top home remedies for gas pain for gas pain relief are:

  • Make a mixture of ginger powder, pounded carom seed(ajwain) and black salt in equal quantities. Take the mixture after meal (1 gram) for fast relief from gas pain.
  • Take a small piece of ginger. Sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice over it. Add a pinch of black salt and take this while you are having meal.
  • Make a powder out of cinnamon and boil it in a glass of water. Take this while it is warm half hour before meal. This will prevent the formation of gas.
  • Make a powder out of 2 grams of Asafoetida (hing) and mix it in a glass of warm water. Take about 20ml of it twice a day.
  • Try teas with peppermint, chamomile or fennel to relieve gas pain. Peppermint contains menthol, which appears to have an antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of digestive tract. This is one of the most effective home remedies for gas pain.
  • If you have a severe pain try lying on your back, pulling your legs up to your chest. This can help to expel your gas. This is an immediate home remedy for gas pain.
  • Avoid consuming foods that affect you the most, such as high-fiber foods, dairy products, soda content drinks, beer, and other food products that cause excess gas.
  • If you experience burning sensation while passing stool and if stool is foul smelling then it is a sign that your colon contains toxic material. Follow a fasting program to eliminate these toxins
  • For a fast relief from bloating or heartburn you could go for brown rice or barley broth. You have to boil the mixture containing five parts of water and one part of grain. Boil this mixture for 10 minutes, uncovered. Now cover it and boil it on simmer for 50 to 55 minutes. Cool the liquid after straining it. Sip the strained liquid during the day for fast relief from gas problems
  • Do not eat food when you are tensed, upset or overtired
  • Do not drink liquid while eating food as this prevents proper digestion by diluting stomach juices
  • You can temporarily cut high-fiber foods and gradually build up the intake over the weeks.
  • Eat several small meals instead of eating two or three larger ones a day.
  • One of the simpler and effective home remedies for gas pain is to increase the amount of fluid you drink, especially water.
Avoid these Gas Causing Foods
  • Baked beans
  • Vegetables: Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, broccoli, onion
  • Chewing gum
  • Whole grain: whole wheat
  • Fruits: apples, peaches, pears
  • Sorbitol: Sugar free candies, gums
  • Carbonated drinks
Prevention from Gas

Let us have a look at some of the ways in which stomach gas can be prevented –

  • Eat Slowly: Eating fast can interfere with proper digestion of food.
  • Walk: Walk for a minimum of 500 mtrs after meals.
  • Reduce Fatty Foods: Digestion is slow if you take lot of fatty foods.
  • Avoid Food: With trial and error method you can find which foods affects you most. Avoid them.
  • Reduce Smoking: While inhaling smoke you can swallow air too hence avoid it for quick relief.
  • Straw: Avoid straw while drinking. You might swallow air while using straw for drinking liquids.
Causes of gas pain

Below are some of the primary causes of gas pain –

  • As we eat or drink we also swallow air. Sometime we may swallow air when we are nervous. This air finds its way into your lower digestive tract.
  • One of the main causes of gas pain is when bacteria in your colon, ferment carbohydrates that are not digested in your small intestines.
  • Even some of healthy foods such as, beans, peas and whole grains can cause gas to form, as these foods are high in fiber.
  • Dairy products consumption can also cause gas formation. It may be because your body is not able to break down the sugar (lactose) in dairy foods.
  • Use of certain medicines such as antibiotics and constipating drugs, also cause gas pain as they disrupt the normal bacterial flora that live in your bowel (part of the intestines).
  • Artificial sweetener like sorbitol and mannitol found in some sugar-free foods can also cause excess gas if your system cannot tolerate it.
  • Do eat in a hurry. Eating when you are on the run and under stress can interfere with digestion process and cause gas.
  • Smoking can also increase the amount of air you swallow.
Symptoms of gas pain

The primary gas pain symptoms includes sharp pains and jabbing cramps in your abdomen and these pains can change location quickly. Sometimes the pain is so intense that you feel it is serious illness like a heart problem, back pains and many others. This generally occurs when gas builds up in your intestines and are not expelled. The voluntary or involuntary passing of gas, either as belching (burp) or as flatus (gas generated in or expelled from the digestive tract) is also symptoms of gas pain.

Bloating and Gas Pain

Many people feel that they tend to pass gas or burp very often, which can be quite embarrassing and also cause much discomfort. On the whole the average adult tends to pass about 1 to 3 pints of gas every day, which comes out of the anus about 14 to 23 times in a day. Burping occasionally before having one’s meals is quite normal.

The amount of gas one produces depends upon one’s diet as well as other individual factors. Of course, most individuals who do complain of excessive gas actually pass usual amounts of gas.

Source of gas – Swallowing air is the most important source of the formation of the gas. It is of course quite natural to swallow small amounts of air while eating as well as drinking and when one is swallowing saliva. One may swallow more amounts of air when one was eating food rapidly, chewing gum, gulping liquids and even smoking.

Most of the air is got rid of through belching which results in only a relatively small amount of air passing through the stomach into one’s small intestine. One posture has an effect on how air passes into the small intestine.

Belching – Belching is either voluntary or may occur unintentionally. Involuntary belching is quite normal after one has one’s meals. This releases the air that enlarges or stretches one’s stomach. Belching is common with certain types of foods that tends to relax the ring shaped muscle. Located at the lower end of our esophagus where it tends to join the stomach. Such foods are chocolates, fats as well as peppermint.

Indigestion – Some carbohydrates are not easily digested, and results in gas. Quite a number of vegetables contain raffinose, such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage, asparagus, whole grains and broccoli. These cause a lot of flatulence and gas. Consuming a large amount of lactose can cause gas production.

Diseases – Those suffering from certain diseases such as scleroderma or diabetes usually experience the slowing down of the small intestine. This can result in the growth of bacteria in the inside one’s bowel. This causes poor digestion of nutrients as well as carbohydrates. These can also can cause gas production.

Functional dyspepsia – This refers to persistent pain in the upper part of the abdomen. Nerves that carry messages from our bowel movement tend to be overactive in the case of IBS. Many people complain of bloating.

Irritable bowel movement – This can also cause gas production and bloating. There are much changes in one’s bowel movement such as diarrhea or constipation. Nerves that carry messages from one’s bowel may be overactive.

Anus irritation or esophagus – Those who have irritation around their anus on account of hemorrhoids or several other problems may also face much discomfort and the passing of gas. Those who suffer from irritation of esophagus also experience burping that is quite painful.

Diet restrictions – One must avoid foods that tend to aggravate the condition. Foods such as dairy products, milk, some types of fruits as well as vegetables, artificial sweeteners and even carbonated beverages. One must maintain a record of foods that bother a person.

Yoga for the digestive system – Mayurasana

Mayura in Sanskrit means peacock. Mayurasana (the peacock posture) helps in the proper functioning of the digestive system. It enhances the circulation and supply of blood to the digestive organs and hence could prevent lots of digestive related problems.

  • Kneel keeping your knees twelve inches apart
  • Place the hands on the floor between the knees with your wrists facing forward and fingers pointing backward
  • Support both sides of the navel with your elbows
  • Balancing on your hands, raise your body and legs to a horizontal position. First raise the upper part of your body and then the legs
  • Stretch your legs a little wide like the letter V
  • Remain in this posture for few seconds
  • Return to the original position by slowly folding your legs and then placing your knees on the ground. Then sit on your soles

Tutorial : Play games and Watch Movies in Real 3D (with Glasses)

Greetings again Friends. This is TJ and Recently I’ve managed to play conventional games 

into Real 3D and watch general movies into 3D with glasses with a little tweaks/Patch and downgrades in Nvidia Graphics.So, Today I’m gonna show you How exactly you can manage to play the 3D games and watch movies.This short tutorial will let you understand the tweak and teach you how you can do it.Now Fasten your Seat belts and Get Ready for some Serious 3D effects on your PC.

The Step by Step Tutorial is given Below.Follow the Steps and if you get any error or something,then Read the Error solving part or just PM me! Happy to Help! 🙂

 Table of Contents :
 3.Installing and Configuring
 4.Testing 3D games
 5. Error Solving

1.Prerequisites :

1. Graphics Card/Compatible GPU ::We are going to use Nvidia 3D Vision technology for enabling the 3D effect.

Now, this technology only works in NVidia GeForce Graphics card (series 6,7,8) so Make sure you’re having compatible graphics on your system.
Several ATI cards also supports 3D Vision tech. so just google it and make sure you have the right hardware. Any GPU (min 128mb GRAM will work for this).
In my case, its Nvidia GeForce 8400GT (256MB).

2. Compatible Monitor : You must be having a monitor that is running with minimum 60Hz  frequency. In my case, its 75Hz. If its 120Hz,then you’ll get the BEST Result.

3. 3D Glasses : A simple Red-Blue or Red-Cyan or Red-Green 3D Glasses for Anaglyphic3D effect. Polarized 3D Glasses won’t work. for 3D Vision technology,so make sure you have the right pair of glasses.
                        In market there are many glasses available. Even Nvidia manufacturers 3D Glasses of paper but they won’t fix if you’re having (+)/(-) glasses already.
                        I suggest you to buy a Plastic Framed Glasses which gives you a very decent Result. Here’s the Link if you wanna buy one.

2. Downloading Drivers :

1. First , You’ll need NVidia GeForce Drivers version 181.22 for enabling the Stereoscopic Option in the NVidia Control Panel. (Only this version Works, The New and Updated drivers won’t work.)
–  XP users download it from HERE. (77mb~)
–  Vista or 7 (32 bit) users Download it from HERE. (78mb~)
–  Vista or 7 (64 bit) users Download it from HERE. (96mb~)

2. Also , Download  GeForce Stereoscopic 3D Vision Drivers from HERE. (8mb~) 

Now, You are All done with downloading stuff.
Get Ready for installing the Drivers and Configuring your System.

3. Installing and Configuring thystem:

1. Uninstall the Current NVidia Graphics Driver of your System : First of all, As i said only this version of GeForce driver Works,so You have to Uninstall the Current version of the drivers from your system.
Just go to the Control Panel/Add or Remove Program and Uninstall the Current Driver from your system.Then Re-Start your PC.

2. Install the Downloaded NVidia GeForce 181.22 Driver.

After installing the Driver, Restart your PC.

3. Then Install the Stereoscopic 3D Vision Drivers.

NOTE : if you get any error during the installation of this 3D vision drivers like “Your Current Drivers / GPU doesn’t support the 3D Vision Technology.” then Don’t Panic.It Means that You’ve not Successfully Uninstalled the Previous Drivers or Your 181.22 were not installed successfully. In this Case, Remove all of the NVIDIA Product installation from your PC. Then Restart your PC.then Install 181.22 Again and then Install 3D Vision Drivers. It will surely help.

4. Now it Time to Add some Registry Patch
   First, Download the Registry from HERE. (3kb~)
   And extract all the reg files from it to your desktop folder (say 3D).
   Don’t apply them now,as we need to configure the NVidia Panel.

5. Enable Stereoscopic Tab/Menu in NVidia Control Panel :

Now, goto your extracted folder and Just Double Click on “3dStereo.reg” file. Say YES when it asks.

Okay, now after applying this Patch. Goto Your Desktop and Right Click -> NVidia Control Panel.
 Now, you should be having a special Menu/Tab saying : Stereoscopic 3D like this. (Click on the Image to view it Large)

NOTE : If you’re not getting NVidia Control panel then from that reg. folder that you’ve recently downloaded , apply the Reg. named  : “disableoldNV_CP.reg”. This will disable your Old control panel and You can see the NVidia Control panel in right click menu.

Just Enable the Stereoscopic option in this Menu and You’re all set to Play 3D Games!!!

6. Apply the 3D Glass Patch ::

Now, after you’ve successfully completed the previous steps. One Last Steps is to Change the 3D Game Display according to your 3D Glass.

Say if you’re having RED-CYAN Glass : Apply a Registry named “3dStereo_redblue.reg” from that Folder.
For Red-Green and Yello-Blue Glass, apply accordingly.

4. Testing 3D game :

You can check the game compatibility in the Options of NVidia Control Panel -> Stereoscopic options -> Game Compatibility .

Now, Install a famous game Like : Farcry,NFS (any version), FIFA,POP etc.

Start the game.Put on Your 3D Glasses.
If Everything is right, you should be playing 3D game Now.

5. Error Solving :

E0 :  No 3D Output : correct that you’ve installed 181.22 drivers only and then installed the 3D Vision Drivers.
E1 : Display Gone : Sorry, your NVidia Hardware was not compatible with 181.22 to install that  drivers. Just Restore your PC to earlier version.
E2 : 3D game is running Slow : Ofcourse, its 3D. But Try this : First check your Monitor Frequency : if its 70Hz above then game will run smoothly. Then if still doesn’t work, Lower the Resolution of your game and Play.This will definately work.
E4 : No Stereoscopic Tab/Menu in NVidia COntrol Panel : 
    -First Run this registry : disableoldNV_CP.reg
    – Restart your PC.
    – Then run this Registery : 3dStereo.reg from that folder.
    -Restart again.
The StereoScopic Menu should be there.
If its still not there, Check that you’re having 181.22 GeForceware driver installed.

Top 10 Most Poisonous Animals in the World Read more:

Here are ten of the most poisonous animals in the world! From the Box Jellyfish to the Puffer Fish! Look really closely at each photo, cause next time you meet them can be the last thing you ever see!

1. Box Jellyfish

Poisonous Animals
The top prize for “The World Most Venomous Animal,” would go to the Box Jellyfish. It has caused at least 5,567 recorded deaths since 1954. Their venom is among the most deadly in the world. It’s toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. And the worst part of it is that jelly box venom is so overpoweringly painful, that human victims go in shock, drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors experience pain weeks after the contact with box jellies.

You have virtually no chance to survive the venomous sting, unless treated immediately. After a sting, vinegar should be applied for a minimum of 30 seconds. Vinegar has acetic acid, which disables the box jelly’s nematocysts that have not yet discharged into the bloodstream (though it will not alleviate the pain). Wearing panty hose while swimming is also a good prevention measure since it can prevent jellies from being able to harm your legs.

Jelly box can be found in the waters around Asia and Australia.

2. King Cobra

Poisonous Animals
The King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) is the world’s longest venomous snake – growing up to 5.6 m (18.5 ft) in length. Ophiophagus, literally means “snake-eater” as it eats other snakes. One single bite of this deadly snake can easily kill a human. This snake is even capable of killing a full-grown Asian Elephant within 3 hours if the larger animal is bitten in a vulnerable area such as the trunk.

It’s venom is not as toxic as other venomous snakes, but King Cobra is capable of injecting 5 times more venom than black mamba and can result in mortality up to 5 times faster than that of the black mamba. It is quite widespread, ranging across South and South-east Asia, living in dense highland forests.

3. Marbled Cone Snail

Poisonous Animals
This little beautiful looking Marbled Cone snail can be as deadly as any other animal on this list. One drop of its venom is so powerful that it can kill more than 20 humans. If you ever happen to be in warm salt water environment (where these snails are often found) and see it, don’t even think of picking it up. Of course, the true purpose of its venom is to catch its prey.

Symptoms of a cone snail sting can start immediately or can be delayed in onset for days. It results in intense pain, swelling, numbness and tingling. Severe cases involve muscle paralysis, vision changes and breathing failure. There is no antivenom. However, only about 30 human deaths have been recorded from cone snail envenomation.

4. Blue-Ringed Octopus

Poisonous Animals

The Blue-Ringed Octopus is very small, only the size of a golf ball, but its venom is so powerful that can kill a human. Actually it carries enough poison to kill 26 adult humans within minutes, and there is no antidote. They are currently recognized as one of the world’s most venomous animals.

Its painless bite may seem harmless, but the deadly neurotoxins begin working immediately resulting in muscular weakness, numbness, followed by a cessation and breathing and ultimately death.

They can be found in tide pools in the Pacific Ocean, from Japan to Australia.

5. Death Stalker Scorpion

Poisonous Animals
Contrarily to the popular belief most of the scorpions are relatively harmless to humans as stings produce only local effects (pain, numbness or swelling). However, the Death Starker Scorpion is highly dangerous species because its venom is a powerful cocktail of neurotoxins which causes an intense and unbearable pain, then fever, followed by coma, convulsions, paralysis and death. Fortunately, while a sting from this scorpion is extremely painful, it would be unlikely to kill a healthy, adult human. Young children, the old, or infirm (with a heart condition) are at the biggest risk.

Death stalker scorpions are spread in North Africa and Middle East.

6. Stonefish

Poisonous Animals
Maybe Stonefish would never win a beauty contest, but it would definitely win the top prize for being “The World Most Venomous Fish”. Its venom causes such a severe pain that the victims of its sting want the affected limb to be amputated. It is described as the worst pain known to man. It is accompanied with possible shock, paralysis, and tissue death. If not given medical attention within a couple of hours It can be fatal to humans.

Stonefish stores its toxins in gruesome-looking spines that are designed to hurt would-be predators.

Stonefish mostly live above the tropic of Capricorn, often found in the shallow tropical marine waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans, ranging from the Red Sea to the Queensland Great Barrier Reef.

7. The Brazilian wandering spider

Poisonous Animals
The Brazilian Wandering Spider (Phoneutria) or banana spider appears in the Guinness Book of World Records 2007 for the most venomous spider and is the spider responsible for most human deaths.

This spider is believed to have the most potent neurotoxic venom of any living spider. Only 0.006mg (0.00000021oz) is sufficient to kill a mouse. They are also so dangerous because of their wandering nature. They often hide during daytime in highly populated areas inside houses, clothes, boots, and cars.

Its venomous bite causes not only intense pain, the venom of the spider can also cause priapism – uncomfortable erections lasting for many hours that lead to impotence.

8. Inland Taipan

Poisonous Animals
The prize for “The World’s Most Venomous Snake” goes to the Inland Taipan of Australia. Just a single bite from this snake contains enough venom to kill 100 human adults or an army of 250,000 mice. Its venom is at least 200 – 400 times more toxic than a common cobra. The Inland Taiwan’s extremely neurotoxic venom can kill an adult human in as little as 45 minutes. Fortunately this snake is very shy and there have been no documented human fatalities (all known bites were treated with antivenin).

9. Poison Dart Frog

Poisonous Animals
If you ever happen to be running through the rain forests somewhere in Central or South America, do not ever pick up beautiful and colorful frogs – it can be the Poison Dart Frog. This frog is probably the most poisonous animal on earth.The 2 inch long (5cm) golden poison dart frog has enough venom to kill 10 adult humans or 20,000 mice. Only 2 micrograms of this lethal toxin (the amount that fits on the head of a pin) is capable of killing a human or other large mammal. They are called “dart frogs” because indigenous Amerindians’ use of their toxic secretions to poison the tips of their blow-darts. Poison dart frogs keep their poison in their skins and will sicken or kill anybody who touches or eats it.

10. Puffer Fish

Poisonous Animals
Puffer Fish are the second most poisonous vertebrate on earth (the first one is golden dart Frog). The meat of some species is a delicacy in both Japan (as fugu) and Korea (as bok-uh) but the problem is that the skin and certain organs of many puffer fish are very poisonous to humans.

This puffy fish produce rapid and violent death..Puffer’s poisoning causes deadening of the tongue and lips, dizziness, vomiting, rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing, and muscle paralysis. Victims die from suffocation as diaphragm muscles are paralyzed. Most of the victims die after four to 24 hours. There is no known antidote, Most deaths from fugu happen when untrained people catch and prepare the fish.

Some Hidden Information contained in Famous

Something of interest which I am sure many of us are not aware of.

This logo doesn’t seem to hide much at first sight, but it gives you a little insight in the philosophy behind the brand. First of all, the yellow swoosh looks like a smile: Amazon.com want to have the best customer satisfaction. The swoosh also connects the letters a and z, meaning that this store has everything from a to z.
This is probably one of the best known logos with a hidden meaning. If you look closely, you’ll see an arrow that’s formed by the letters E and x. This arrow symbolizes speed and precision, two major selling points of this company.
Continental is a manufacturer of tyres. You could actually see this in their logo, because the first two letters create a 3-dimensional tyre.
Toblerone is a chocolate-company from Bern , Switzerland . Bern is sometimes called ‘The City Of Bears’. They have incorporated this idea in the Toblerone logo, because if you look closely, you’ll see the silhouette of a bear.
Baskin Robins
The old logo of Baskin Robbins had the number 31 with an arc above it. The new logo took this idea to the next level. The pink parts of the BR still form the number 31, a reference to the 31 flavours.
Sony Vaio
Sony Vaio is a well known brand of laptops. But did you know that the name Vaio logo also had a hidden meaning? Well, the first two letters represent the basic analogue signal. The last two letters look like a 1 and 0, representing the digital signal.
Carrefour is one of the biggest European retailers, and it’s also French for “crossroads”. The logo symbolizes this word via two opposite arrows. They also added the first letter of the name, because if you look closely you’ll see the letter C in the negative space between the two arrows.
Unilever is one of the biggest producers of food, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. They produce a huge amount of different products and they wanted to reflect this in their logo. Each part of the logo has a meaning. For example: the heart represents love, care and health –  feeling good, a bird is a symbol of freedom. Relief from daily chores – getting more out of life.
Formula 1
At first, this logo might not make much sense. But if you look closely, you’ll see the number 1 in the negative space between the F and the red stripes. I also love how this logo communicates a feeling of speed.
Sun Microsystems
The Sun logo is one of the most famous ambigrams in the world. You can read the brand name in every direction; both horizontally and vertically. This logo was designed by professor Vaughan Pratt of the Stanford University
The NBC (National Broadcasting Company) is one of the biggest American television networks. I think most of you have already seen the peacock in this logo. The peacock has 6 different tail feathers, referring to the six divisions at the time that this logo was created. The peacock’s head is  flipped to the right to suggest it was looking forward, not back.
