Farting is basically a good thing because the build-up of gas in the abdomen can cause uncomfortable bloating and pain. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore them completely. We need to pay attention to their frequency, smell, and if they occur together with other gastrointestinal symptoms, they can give you clues about your health condition and even suggest some potentially serious conditions .
The ability to understand the condition of your gut by farting is medically proven. Here’s what you should be aware of: no farts may not be good, many farts may be bad, and stinky farts may be about to happen.
Some people are proud that they never fart or rarely fart. Actually, people who fart are healthier than those who don’t! A patient once said that he had not farted or pooped for several days and had bouts of abdominal pain. After the doctor’s examination, this is a precursor of intestinal obstruction, the reason is that in the first month the patient eats too much meat and exercises less, causing accumulation of food in the abdomen, the gastrointestinal function is obstructed and poor detoxification is caused.
Some people also find ways to hold their farts in, which seems to solve the embarrassment caused by loud and smelly farts, but may actually suggest some health problems. Did you know? People will fart 8 to 20 times a day. In most cases, we are totally unaware that our asshole has quietly exhausted . If regular farts are held in, it not only increases the burden on the body, but also may cause chronic toxicity in the organism, causing bloating, abdominal pain, chest tightness, and may even produce diseases such as peritonitis and intestinal obstruction.
Second, more farts can not be careless. Many farts mean that the amount of anal exhaust greatly exceeds the usual, for many reasons, such as indigestion, gastritis, peptic ulcer and other gastric diseases, liver, biliary and pancreatic diseases and so on. There are functional and organic indigestion, the former is related to gastrointestinal motility dysfunction; the latter is related to intestinal inflammation, cancer and other diseases.
More farts may also be caused by the intake of starchy, protein-based foods such as beans, potatoes, eggs, etc., or excessive wolf swallowing or habitual swallowing action, and more air intake by frequent swallowing of saliva. Therefore, it is recommended that farts should not be paralyzed, and it is best to go to the hospital for a checkup to clarify the reasons for farting and then prescribe the right medicine.
In addition, if the farts are smelly and unpleasant, you should not be sloppy. It may be due to indigestion, or excessive intake of acidic food with meat, or due to bleeding in the digestive tract and blood stagnation in the intestinal cavity. In addition, in the late stage of malignant tumor, because of the rotten tissue of the cancer and protein corruption, the fart released will also be very smelly due to the action of bacteria. Sometimes, eating too much food with irritating smell such as garlic, onion and leek can also make the farts stink, which is nothing to worry about.
To briefly summarize.
- If you have too many farts and they smell bad, consider if you have indigestion.
- If farts are too much but do not smell bad, consider stomach problems such as gastritis and peptic ulcer.
- If the farts are particularly smelly, there may be problems such as gastrointestinal bleeding, bacillary dysentery, amoebic dysentery, ulcerative colitis, or hemorrhagic small bowel infection.
- If the fart is particularly small or does not fart at all, and is accompanied by abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, hyperactive or absent bowel sounds, or gas over water, consider whether there is intestinal obstruction.
So farts are not the more the better, but of course less is also a problem. Simply learn to judge the body signals released by farts, so that you are more comfortable to know your body.
