Sugar and water are the simplest home remedies for gas problems. Even you can give sugar and water for gas problems in infants and babies. 

For adults, add 2 tbsp of sugar in one cup of water. Mix well and heat the mixture. Bring it to boil. Drink this mixture either hot or warm. Do not allow it cool down completely. Drink it as hot as you can. Drinking hot can give you instant relief. 

For gas problems in infants and kids, add tiny amount of sugar in warm water. Mix it well and feed them. Take care not to burn the tongue of your tiny one. Check the temperature before giving.

2. Jeera(Cumin seeds) and Water:

Add 2 tsp of cumin seeds(Jeeragam in Tamil) in 1 cup of water. You can also add fenugreek seeds(optional). Heat the mixture in a pan and bring it to boil. Have it hot.

Take one small garlic pod or 10 garlic flakes. Peel off the skin from the garlic flakes. Add milk and garlic flakes in a pan and heat the pan. Allow the garlic flakes to cook. We usually cook it in a pressure cooker along when we cook the rice. Eat it to get instant relief. It is good for feeding mothers to increase the breast milk.
