I am a healthy 30 year old mother of two. Although I have been farting previously without any problems, my farts have now become more frequent and very smelly. This has caused me a lot of embarrassment especially when in a public place. I have even reduced my intake of eggs and beans to no avail. Your kind assistance will be appreciated in solving the riddle.

Flatulence, which is sometimes called passing wind, passing gas, or farting, is a biological process that helps to release gas from digestion. Though in some cases they are silent and odourless, farts can become uncomfortable when they are loud and foul-smelling. In most cases, foul-smelling flatulence is associated with the foods you eat and an unbalanced diet. However, there can be more serious causes of rotten-smelling gas such as; high-fiber foods such as cabbage and some green vegetables; food intolerance (especially lactose –milk- intolerance), some diseases such as celiac disease, some medications such as antibiotics, constipation, Intestinal infection and rarely, cancer of the colon. To get rid of foul-smelling gas, you may try the following suggestions; eat smaller portions at a slower pace to encourage healthy digestion and reduce gas production, drink more water to help move waste through the body more efficiently, include probiotic foods like yogurt in your diet to help restore healthy bacteria in your body and improve digestion, avoid carbonated drinks that can produce gas, including beer, sparkling wine and soda and avoid foods that contribute to smelly gas. Consult your doctor immediately when these fail.
