Hi, for the past 2 or 3 years I've been dealing with this very embarassing problem. At random points in the day people will ask me if I passed gas. Apparently it's a very strong odor but for whatever reason I cannot smell it at all! I've heard that it either smells like flatulence or like a dirty diaper smell...I don't feel myself passing gas but I guess it's happening uncontrollably, like I have a leak or something. My bowel movements are normal (I have occasional constipation but I dont think it's related). I've tried changing my diet, eliminating dairy, and chocolate, but with no success... I don't know if this has anything to do with it but my entire life I've never eaten fruits or vegetables...I don't think it's related cause it only started happening a few years ago (I'm 23). This is an incredibly embarassing problem that I can't seem to shake. If any one can help me please let me know cause I can't take it anymore...

  • I would guess that the lack of fruits and vegetables all your life has EVERYTHING to do with it! Get to a good naturopath quickly to find out what's going on. Your digestive system is the backbone of your entire health - or sickness. You can't afford to mess it up so early in life!

  • I agree about the fruits and vegetables. What happens when you eat meat is it slows down the digestion and you'll have a lot more gas. And the gas will be bad because what is going on in your intestinal tract is putrificattion or the rotting of your food. And of course this will sometimes cause constipation because the food sits for long periods in your intestinal tract. I believe meat takes 3 days to digest!!!I don't have to tell you how unhealthy this is. Just the sound of it tells one that. You need to start eating more fruits and vegetables. Better yet, my suggestion would be to find a Naturopathic Doctor and go through a liver cleanse. It will do you body some good. And then follow their guidelines for eating healthy and right. You'll feel better in no time and your friends will appreciate it too! ;)
