FLATULENCE (GAS )
Flatulence is a medical term for releasing gas from the digestive system through the anus.
Flatulence, known as Aadhaman in Ayurveda, is caused due to an imbalance of Vata and Pitta Dosha. Pitta is a humor that symbolizes heat or fire. It controls the digestive fire or jatharagni – the fire that helps digest foods. Vata is another humor, which symbolizes air or wind. Low Pitta Dosha and aggravated Vata Dosha result in low digestive fire, thus impairing digestion. Impaired digestion leads to flatulence.
Impaired digestion and poor absorption of foods in the small intestines cause flatulence. Certain conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, Crohn’s disease or colon cancer, may also cause flatulence. People with scar tissue (adhesions) from abdominal operations or internal hernias may have a sensation of bloating because of increased sensitivity to gas. Additionally, a diet that is low in fiber and a sedentary lifestyle cause indigestion or ama (mucus) formation leading to flatulence.
Belching and headache in some cases
Lethargy and dullness

Pain or feeling of heaviness in the abdomen
AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR GAS AND BLOATING
If you are suffering from excessive gas formation in your digestive tract, Ayurvedic medicines can provide effective treatment. The problem of gas is a by-product of indigestion and it can either result in intestinal pain or release with unpleasant odour from rectum. The release from mouth is not considered as much of a problem if not too recurrent. The cause of odour in the gas passed through rectum is the presence of bacteria in the large intestine.
