    I found Ajwain seeds with Black salt chewing very effective for my gas problem. Of late, I used to pass gas throughout the day. Since, I don’t take any allopathy medicines, I was in this situation for a long time. But when gas started smelling, it was unbearable. Yor herbal remedy has worked magic in my system. Still gas formation is there, but it comes out few times only. How long this remedy can be continued? Should I take Ajwain water.for a longer time? i have no problem with Milk & milk problem.
