Disorders of the digestive system, constipation and aridity of gastric juices give rise to many gastric problems, one of them is flatulence. Gas is produced in the alimentary canal and causes a feeling of discomfort when the gas instead of taking the downward course pushes upward. If the pressure of this accumulated gas is directed towards the heart one feels pressure upon the heart and suffocating effects are produced. When this gas is directed towards the head it results in migraine or sinusitis. If it is directed towards the arms, hands start aching and tingling is experienced. If it remains accumulated in the gullet it causes a feeling of heart burning and results in sneezing a lot and dullness. If this gas remains accumulated in the duodenum and intestines and is not treated in time many diseases of liver and intestines result.
