Got gas or bloating?

Do this: Consider peppermint as a digestive aid, says gastroenterologist Anil Minocha, MD, author of Natural Stomach Care. He recommends a peppermint oil capsule of 0.2 to 0.4 milliliters, three times daily. (The capsules are sold in health food stores.)

Or this: One popular yoga posture is so well known for helping bloating it’s actually referred to as the wind-relieving pose. Here’s how to do it:  Lie on your back with your legs extended. Inhaling, draw the right knee toward the chest as you raise your head (as if to kiss the knee); exhale as you lower your head and leg. Repeat three times and switch sides. Then, do both legs together three times.

What’s your reaction?
