“Whether you’re experiencing the after-effects of an indulgence, constipation from travel (even if you were sticking to healthy snacks), dealing with period symptoms, or for some inexplicable reason are just generally having the sensation that you could float away like a hot air balloon, there’s no denying it’s downright uncomfortable,” Kapoor wrote in her caption.

According to her, “occasional gas is perfectly natural”, and there are some tips and tricks to help you find relief.

1. You can try eating foods that are rich in potassium.
2. Give yourself a break from gluten, sugar and refined foods.
3. Slow down when you eat and make sure you chew your food well.
4. Post meal, sit and relax for 3-5 minutes.
5. Have a probiotic, which is good for the gut.
6. Sit down and take three belly breaths.
