Certain home remedies for relieving trapped gas work better for some people than others. You may have to experiment to see what works best and fastest for you. Most of the evidence behind these home remedies is anecdotal.

Here are some quick ways to expel trapped gas, either by burping or passing gas.

Walk around. Movement may help you expel the gas.

Try gently massaging the painful spot.

Specific yoga poses can help your body relax to aid the passing of gas. Here’s a pose to start with:

Drink noncarbonated liquids. Warm water or herbal tea helps some people. Try peppermint, ginger, or chamomile tea.

Use prepared teabags, or make your own herbal tea by steeping ginger root, peppermint leaves, or dried chamomile.

A traditional Persian remedy advises mixing 10 grams each of ground cumin and fennel with 5 grams of ground anise, and steeping them in a cup of boiling water for 20 minutes.

Natural kitchen remedies for gas include:

Mix one of these ground herbs or seeds into a glass of warm water and drink.

Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in a glass of water and drink it.

Be careful not to use more than 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Too much baking soda taken when you have a full stomach could lead to a stomach rupture.

Dissolving 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drinking it is a traditional remedy for gas release.

Anecdotal evidence suggests this can be effective, but there’s no scientific evidence to support this claim. However, there aren’t any negative side effects to this method.
