Abstract

Objective: Bloating and gas accumulation is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders. Since herbs are always on of the most important source of medicines for many kind of diseases, so we try to investigate and introduce Lorestan local anti-bloating herbs in this study. Methods: The traditional treatment data of this study were collected from the indigenous peoples and through cooperation of Dorud Health and treatment Network, Boroojerd, Khorramabad, Aleshtar, Poldokhtar, Aligudarz, Nurabad and Kouhdasht. Questionnaires were prepared before and the volunteers were trained. Trained volunteers by mentioned questionnaire recorded people's beliefs about alternative medicine in the treatment of flatulence. Results: Eventually it was investigated that 13 remedial plants from 10 plant families were effective in the treatment of flatulence. In many parts of the world, especially in remote areas where there isn't any access to doctors and medicine, people use Folk medicine and homemade treatments. Conclusions: The awareness of these applications can be a policy for the achievement of new medicinal uses of these plants which hadn't been reported in the available literature as well.
