Dear Hainie
Colon discomfort and excessive gas can have a variety of causes (irritable bowel disease (IBS), digestive enzyme deficiencies, food intolerances, sensitivities or allergies, duodenal ulcers, gallbladder problems, etc). It is generally advisable to have a full medical checkup so that you can obtain a diagnosis before you start changing your diet or taking medications.
