Yes both, with little to no success. And in most cases, they make it worse.
Have either or both of you tried any probiotics? Digestive enzymes???

I do swallow a lot of air and I believe this is part of it. I burp too, A LOT. The symptom that bothers me is the pain associated with the gas, as well as the need to pass gas all the time. When I release the gas the pain goes away.
You may fart after meals because any gas you do make (even on a low gas diet you will make some) not because of what was in the meal but that the colon pushes the gas along and it comes out after meals.And it is rare, but some people do swallow air more than usual and may be gassy even if they eat no food for 48-72 hours.Feeling full and bloated or even distended may not be gas and you can feel like that for many reasons.What is the symptom that is bothering you when you say "every food gives me gas"? as some people mean fart frequency, others mean pain or distension.

I have tried both of these. Nothing really from the peppermint oil except my poop is a little runny later and feels cold. VSL#3 gave me terrible diarrhea.
try taking a peppermint oil capsule a half hour before you eat. Helps minimized bloating and gas. and use a stronger probiotic like VSL#3
