Easy way to get rid of gas

Gas rises.  In your body it is trying to rise up and leaks out through the butt.  To get rid of it, you need to get into a position where your butt is higher than your head.  Lie on the floor with your feet up against the wall, or if in bed or on the couch, lean over the side of the and get your head and shoulders lower than your butt.  It only takes a few seconds and the gas will be gone.  If it comes back, just repeat.  This is so easy and can save a lot of misery and embarrassment.

A nurse told me about this position which is similar to yours. Lie on your back and just pull your legs up by your chest, works every time. If that is too hard lay on your left side and do the same position, this one doesn't work as well but is easier to get into for some folks. Between this and GasX gas doesn't have a chance!

I just have one of the local kids pull my finger!

  If it feels good, do it!  And if it smells good, eat it!

I prefer prevention, myself.

Don't eat the stuff that gives you gas, and get plenty of yogurt.

Much less embarrassing
