I have been plagued with bloating, gas and discomfort for a number of years, but it has, until recently, been only at occasional times. Now I find it happening more often and lasting for days. I will be having my gallbladder removed soon because I am full of stones. Since finding out the nature of my discomfort I began putting peppermint oil in tea or coffee whenever I began feeling distressed - usually after a meal. Since I have been doing this the problem seems to be quelled before it develops into a full attack. Sometimes I have even rubbed the oil on my stomach and gallbladder area before going to bed and I wake up in the morning with absolutely no discomfort at all. I use peppermint for lots of things, but for this problem it has been such a wonderful relief.
