Dear Customer: Greetings, this is Dr. Basu, experienced Medical Specialist.. I am double board-certified with many years of experience. I did review your inquiry and I am hoping to give you
at least some high quality guidance here. Please ignore any call requests as they are automated responses by the website and not sent by the experts! TEXTING would be fine.
Please give me some time to review your concerns. Please be patient with me as I am on and off the computer so responses can be delayed at times, but I will be glad to help.

How long you have the symptoms?

any diarrhea? constipation?


Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Had it about 3 weeks on and off. No diarrhea, constipation etc. Get a feeling of trapped wind in my chest. I then burp it away.

Ok in that case, you likely have bad intestinal flora which produce gas from undigested food.

Please follow a high fiber low fat diet. Drink plenty of fluids.

Easily digestible food better

Please also include prebiotics like Inulin daily to keep your colon acidic which prevent gas producing bacteria.
Also take a probiotic ( lactobacilli, bifidobacterium) daily to restore intestinal microbial balance.
Culturelle 30 Counts twice daily should be fine.
Please consider taking Simethicone ( GasX) strips before each meal and activated charcoal tablets to reduce gas formation.
