There are many reasons why you may fart too much. Let's find out what farting is and why we fart first. The correct way to say farting is flatulence. Flatulence is simply passing gas in your digestive system out of your bottom.
Farting is a funny topic because it makes noises and smells bad. It is also very embarrassing to many people who accidently unleash one out of nowhere. However, all mammals pass gas and it is completely healthy.
The amount you fart and the odor it produces is large dependent on your specific diet. This will greatly determine if you pass gas a few times a day to several dozen times a day. The reason why we fart is because when we swallow food, we also swallow small amounts of air. This air goes into our stomach and needs to go somewhere, because it can not stay there. Also, when your stomach works hard to digest your food, you also produce gases in your stomach that needs to exit your body. Farting is not the only way to pass gas. You can pass gas by belching as well.
If you have really bad smelling farts, it is a sign that your food has not been completely digested. What makes the gas so foul smelling is the sulphur gases present. This happens when food does not break down properly and it begins to decompose.
I used to wonder why do I fart so much! There are many possible reasons. You could be swallowing more air than the average person or you could be eating a lot of different foods that your body has a hard time digesting. Another reason why you may fart too much is because of a bigger health problem. You may have issues with your digestive system which is causing you to excrete a lot of gas. A common diagnosis of this problem is IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome.
So how do you know if you are just one of those people who have more gas than other, or you have a bigger health problem that is causing you to pass a lot of gas? The best thing you should do is visit your doctor and get a professional opinion. If you experience other problems such as diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, or fluctuations in weight, these are symptoms of a larger issue.
However, the best treatment is usually to change your diet by choosing foods that do not promote excess gas.
