Dear Ansie
Excessive winds and bloating cay be an indication of a wide variety of conditions (irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, gastric reflux, food allergies, gallbladder disease, etc). So you need to have a medical checkup. Ask your gp to send you for the necessary tests so that we can get a diagnosis. Once we know what is causing this bloating I can make dietary suggestions. In the meanwhile try taking activated charcoal (buy at chemist) to alleviate the winds.
Best regards
