Odor Mask

Flat-D makes an activated charcoal cloth odor face mask. When you wear it you smell no odors. We had one person wonder if people would be able to smell his bad breath. The answer is NO, it would absorb the odors when he exhales. My kids use the mask when they have to clean the cats liter box. Others use it when they have to clean someones Ostomy pouch. It works great.

Mint for flatulence

There are many natural solutions for reducing flatulence. None of them eliminate flatulence totally. This is because we are mammals and gas is a natural part of digestion. A Flat-D pad is also a natural solution as it does not affect digestion or alter the body function in any way. Otherwise here is an article about the benefits of mint on digestion.

Peppermint is the herb of choice for many of man's most common maladies. For sinus congestion, sore throat, pain, sneezing, coughing and chilliness, a strong cup of tea can ease discomfort and bring relief. Breathing peppermint oil alone on a handkerchief or in combination with a couple of drops of lavender essential oil also alleviates migraine headaches for some individuals.
A steam made of a few drops of peppermint oil added to boiling water is a beneficial way to get relief from sinus congestion. Pour boiling hot water and 2-3 drops of peppermint oil in a bowl, place it on a table; sit in front of it, drape a towel over your head, breathe deeply. Be careful to keep a safe distance away from the bowl to prevent burning, stay underneath the towel for 10-15 minutes. Peppermint is also ideal for flavoring and harmonizing herbal blends, combining well with other flu remedies such as elderflower and boneset.
A cup of cold peppermint tea stimulates digestion, settles the stomach, alleviates nausea, indigestion and reduces flatulence. A couple of sprigs of peppermint heated in warm milk are helpful with stomach upset. However, for individuals diagnosed with GERD, gastro-intestinal reflux disorder/hiatal hernia with acid reflux, peppermint could actually exacerbate indigestion because it relaxes the sphincter at the top of the stomach. In this instance peppermint is contraindicated, and should be avoided. Consult with your health practitioner before using this herbal remedy.

Food allergy link to flatus

I found this article that relates food allergys to increased flatus production. This makes sense because when we eat certain foods we create more gas. Here it is.

Food intolerance could be the main reason people with chronic inflammation disease (CID) continue to suffer, scientists have revealed.
Research carried out by a team at York University and food allergy researchers YorkTest showed a vast improvement in people suffering from various inflammatory diseases after they identified and eliminated certain problem foods from their diet.
More than 75% of the 5,000 participants who took part in the study showed the improvement within three weeks of cutting out the foods, which were identified through an IgG antibodies test, commonly used to identify food intolerance.
Of the people who took part in the research, 91% saw improvement in flatulence/wind, 90% saw improved upset stomach symptoms, 88% had fewer general aches and pains, 87% were less fatigued, 84% had fewer rashes and 74% saw improved arthritis symptoms after changing their diet.
Those with IBS showed a significant reduction in stomach distension, bowel dysfunction and general well-being, and also showed a reduction in factors such as pain and fatigue.

Lactose intolerance and flatulence

Worldwide, more than 60% of adults are unable to digest lactose, with the undigested sugars leading to cramping, flatulence, bloating and other symptoms. While some 90% of northern Europeans are able to digest lactose after childhood, only 5% of Asians, 25% of African and Caribbean peoples, and half of Mediterranean peoples are lactose tolerant. USA TODAY (08/31)

Flat-D knows this is a problem for many people. We have a simple solution and one that does not have any side effects like many drugs cause. Try our Flatulence Deodorizer to remove the odor from the intestinal gas or flatus.
